Blue skies

See winter is so great.  You dont get the crisp blue skies like this in the summer - too much haze and humidity!  I cant believe the winter is almost over all ready.



These people shovelled a rectangle off the pond in town and make a skating rink.  I dont know if I am more suprised they would put that much work into a skating rink or that they would go out on the ice.  I have a drowning thing though.


Back of the Basics

This is behind the food basics in town here.  Its really nice looking from this angle.  As longa s you dont have that big, hulking, green industrial building in the picture that is...



SoI was walking down the street and I had my camera with me.  I was swinging my arms and had the camera in one of my hands.  So I decided to turn it on and snap pictures while I was walking/swinging.  This was the result.  Kinda neat! I really like the last one from when I crossed the street!



Caitlin had a playdate with her friend from school.  They decided to bake a cake with the easy bake oven.  Unfortunately, it was busted, so we made the cake by putting the batter in the microwave.  The result? Rock hard pretty rainbow sparkle cake.



The snow was so sparkly this morning I tried to quickly capture it on may way out the door, but I think I just succeeded in making it look like its a dusty picture. LOL!


Getting the goods from Geomama

I got this outfit from Geomama cause I knew Caitlin would love it.  She wears it whenever she can!  It looks sooo comfortable and warm.  I wish I was size 6 and could pull off purple.

When Calvin and I got married we used some of our wedding money on Matching La-z-boys.  When we found out I was pregnant the first time, we saw this mini one and it is the exact same colour/style as ours.  It seriously looks like the 3 bears live here.  Calvin's is oversized, mine is regular and we have this mini.  This is Daniel's first time in it.


Feb 2, 2008.  My cousin and 3 of his friends jumped in a minivan to go shopping.  They heard that it was faster to get there if they drove on the ice road.  They did.  Somehow, they got lost and ended up off the road.  They went through the ice.  The two people in the front got out, but my cousin and the girl in the back did not.  Child locks were on on the sliding doors.

I flew back here for the funeral.  It was hard.  I didnt know him well and I feel guilty about that.  My Dad is his uncle and because of my parent's split, I didnt get to know that side of the family.  Facebook got me in touch with him and alot of my other cousins and family and I tired slowly to get to know them this way.  There are a few I am close with and I ended up having to break the news to them - they grew up in pretty close contact with him and that was hard for me to do.

When I was in the Toronto airport waiting for my flight home and I felt a pair of eyes on me.  This hat.  It was on a rack in a souvenier shop screaming at me (figureatively! LOL) to buy it.  Of course I had to - my cousin had one just like it.

So every Feb 2 I wear the hat, and I make sure to contact every single cousin I have - even ones I have never met (and there are a few I havent except for FB) and just touch base and see how life is treating them.  I didnt do this as often before Feb 2008.  Especially with Paul.  We really had nothing in common, and I didnt know what to say.  I saw him when he was about 4, and then not again until he was 22ish,a nd I know thats not my fault, but now I'll never know him...

1 - the lonliest number.

We were feeling silly this morning.  Heck its February! We fight off winter blahs as best as we can!



This is a road girlsrule made me run down when I was at the end of the line in my running.  But I pushed on and made it to the end with her encouragement.  I thought this was a gorgeous road, and came back to take a picture.  I have a friend that just had her thyroid cancer surgery, and we were designing a photoshoot where she would be looking back at a long road.  I know the first time I saw this road, I thought OMG.  I cant do this!  I did.  She did.  We willl be doing the shoot here.
