The first Photo A Day Challenge prompt for March is “Yellow”. I took a few yellow photos yesterday, mostly of yellow crocus’, but there was nothing “wow” about any of them, so I pulled this photo from the archives. It is from the La Connor Tulip Festival in Washington State. That’s a whole lotta yellow!
I was going to get up uber early and do the before sunrise yoga class today, but I didn’t go. Somehow, sleeping in seemed like a kinder thing for my body. And I don’t regret my decision for a minute! Neva didn’t regret our decision either.
When we got up, I made birds in a nest with some orange, and had my first cup of coffee in two weeks.
We spent most of the morning reading and relaxing, but went out to run some errands this afternoon. We made a pit stop at Spanish Banks, a beach area in the city to see the new art display that is causing a bit of a stir in the city. Secret umbrella elves have hung red umbrellas and have invited sister cities to do the same. Nobody knows who did it, and where they will strike next. Fun!
While we were in the area, we had a little walk. It’s cold though, little snow flakes started to fall while we were there. However, not before we got some pictures….
There were LOTS of different fungus growing on some of the logs…
The logs and scenery are beautiful, even on days that aren’t very sunny and warm…
No need for these today, so no worry for the person who lost them…
…this boat isn’t going anywhere, and has a wise saying on the side…
…something to reflect upon….
..an artist at work. His work was just starting, and he’s a brave soul to sit outside today. I guess that is his way of suffering for his art.
…and one of life’s mysteries…how did the rock get into the log??
Dark clouds were moving in…
We grabbed a quick lunch at a little cafe we’d never been to before, that was a “British Diner”.
The food was very North American, but the place was decked out in its finest U.K decorations. Yes, cheesy, but a fun atmosphere, complete with British papers….
I got into the spirit of things and had tea with milk and sugar….
…my lunch was a chicken “burger” with “chips”. I tracked it, and I enjoyed it.
We’ve hunkered down for the night, the snowfall warning is coming to fruition. And I’m a BAD blogger, my camera battery is charging, so I’m not able to take photos of my glass of red wine, and spinach pasta with light alfredo, that we had for dinner tonight. Oh well… (thanks Google Images!)
I may have some popcorn later too, we may get an On-demand movie and check out one of the Oscar nominees. How is YOUR weekend going? I’m all ears!
