Yesterday’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt was “still life”. I looked all over for a black background, and the t shirt over the table didn’t really work well. So I did a bit more of a “macro still life”, using a little tagine and some whole spices. It’s a stretch….I know.
Today’s prompt is “thank you”. I used this collage of two pictures….I found this rock on a path a few months ago.
I posted this picture of the heron I saw yesterday on the 365 Days in Nature site.
And I popped this picture of lunch on the seawall, that I took last fall into Black and White for the Only Shades of Gray group.
The day’s was a little “hit and miss” nutritionally. The morning got away from me, and I ended up having nothing but coffee until almost lunch time. I am a FIRM believer that breakfast is very important…so I’m hanging my head on this one. When I got home, I had baked pita chips with yogurt/kale dip.
Dennis and I went to Menchies for some frozen yogurt this afternoon. I had vanilla and maple with strawberries, and toasted coconut marshmallow.
Dinner tonight was leftover pork heated with some sweet and sour sauce and peppers. I served it over brown rice.
And I had a big ol’ glass of wine. This is the last glass of wine I’ll have for a month.
I have committed to the “Lose the Booze” challenge for charity for the month of March. The idea is that you give the money you’d spend on booze over the month to the charity of your choice. I’m not a really big drinker (though wine on weekends is nice), so I may up the donation a little at the end of the month to make it worthwhile. I will be splitting my donation between Photographers Without Borders, a Canadian charity that uses volunteer photographers to raise awareness,promote and document work being done around the world. (I am very hopeful I will be able to get involved with them on a closer level in the coming years.) and FINCA Canada, an organization that helps impoverished women in the third world start their own business to increase their standard of living. Both organizations do great work, but it is work outside of my city, so I will also be giving 31 non perishable food items (one for each day of the month) to the Vancouver Food Bank.
Dennis was working this morning, so I got up early and dropped him off so I could use the car during the day. On the way back, I took a little walk because the morning was so nice. It was flippin’ cold though….note to self: Keep gloves in your bag. :) No complaints though, it was lovely to be out and about before sunrise. Here are some of the shots I took. The reflection pics explain today’s title.
The birds were a bit reflective too.
Some weren’t reflective, but were very good at pointing toward the east….
…diving in the cold water….
…and dropping feathers.
Others just walked tightropes. Not really….
I found a big question mark. And I questioned why it was there….
Grasses that caught the sunrise light….
Wooden sculptures made out of logs….
…these sculptures seemed to be perches for crows…..
I almost went down to the big birds….. :)
AWWW! Four dogs outside of a coffee shop waiting for their owners….
“how you doin’??” :)
This dog seems to be flying. :)
When I got home, I did some housework, some spanish homework, I played with Neva in her new basket…
Freshened up the water in the hummingbird feeder….
And when I picked up Dennis this afternoon, I took this picture of gargoyles on the Hotel Vancouver.
They are a little creepy! I love gargoyles though.
How is YOUR weekend going? Hard to believe tomorrow is March. Happy Sunday and happy new month everyone!!
