Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Fly”. As tempting as it was to photograph the front of Dennis’ jeans, I decided instead to go with this photo that I took when we were having a picnic last summer, and a stunt pilot was putting on a show.
I have a new mascot to introduce you to today. I got him in a grab bag from our Thrift Store tour earlier this week. Nothing says “Canadian Thrift Store” quite like a buck toothed, hockey playing Beaver.
He stood by my weight watchers bagel with light swiss that I had for breakfast…
…and the sandwich and apple I took for lunch. (the sandwich was ham, another piece of light swiss, lettuce and mustard on Little Big Bread)
He didn’t stand beside the little piece of birthday cake I had this afternoon for my colleague Jordan.
I went for walks at lunch today, as well as a brief walk after work. Here are a few shots….
There are definite signs of spring. I saw my first daffodils today, and the crocus’ and snowdrops all in full bloom….
….this is the back of chairs that were outside a coffee shop. It may be spring-ish here, but it is still WAY too cold to sit outside….
…hey, it is a crude interpretation of my tattoo on this wall (wow…nothing narcissistic about that – no reason to think the world DOESN’T revolve around me and my tattoo. )…..
…speaking of crude, interesting signs on the street….I liked the description of the sandwiches, and hey, if you want greeting cards and underwears, I know where you can get them all for $1.00…..
…also, there were some early St. Patrick’s Day signs. I asked an Irish colleague of mine what they said. The first says “Hello, Happy St. Patrick’s Day” and the second is the words from an Irish song.
I walked by a “No Penguin Zone”…
…a bike with twinkle lights…
…an interesting piece of tabletop art….
…a gazebo in a green space that wasn’t very green at all….
..window washers who are just fine dangling from a building in a small harness. Good on ‘em, I could never do that! ….
…and a picture that I thought might work for tomorrow’s Photo A Day shot. I think I can do better for the prompt, but I like the textures and layers of this shot.
For dinner tonight, I walked to a Ukrainian Cultural Centre not far from my work. The first Friday of every month, they host a supper. Today, some of the money is being donated to relief efforts from some of the folks over in the Ukraine now, who are suffering as a result of the political unrest in the area.
We did takeout, and got some sausage, perogies and sauerkraut.
So delicious, so affordable and we love that part of the money helps people. We also had a glass of wine.
I’ll leave you tonight with photos of Neva, and her adorable fluffy feet. I know I’m biased, but I think they’re cute. As is the rest of her.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!
