Sunrise this morning (from our deck) was pretty….

IMG_7234

IMG_7233

…and then the sky looked like this.  OOOH!

IMG_7246

The day’s menu following the deck photos started out with a poached egg and light cheese on an english muffin….

IMG_7244

I had some green juice (that I made with apple, kale, spinach, ginger and lime) and some mango/kiwi and blueberries during the morning….

IMG_7238

IMG_7240

Lunch was a ham sandwich on Little Big Bread, with carrots from Saturday’s Farmer’s Market.  The carrots were soooo sweet.

IMG_7236

When I got home from work, I had a Guava Kombucha.  (can’t wait to make my own!  My scoby is growing!!!  :) )

IMG_7644

And dinner was pork tenderloin cooked in bbq sauce in the crock pot.  It was very tender so easy to pull.  We had it on buns, with some roasted little fingerling potatoes.  (also from the Farmer’s Market)

IMG_7647

Before I get into the day’s photos, I’d just like to say that they are NOT meant to piss off my friends in other parts of the world who are in a deep freeze. Though it does seem spring has arrived very very early in Vancouver, it is by no means Nirvana here.  Our housing is basically unaffordable, our traffic is gross, our transit isn’t really adequate, and far, far too many of us drink FAR too much coffee because there is a Starbucks on EVERY stinkin’ corner.  Well…almost.  So please don’t hate me, and hate Vancouver when you see the pictures from my walk today.

And see…we have litter!

IMG_7248

..and graffiti.

IMG_7596

 

IMG_7616

And ewww….blooms and buds.  EWWW!!!! :)

IMG_7249

IMG_7251

IMG_7291

IMG_7606

More mushrooms today….some right way up, others upside down….

IMG_7255

IMG_7612

IMG_7611

 

New creepy Barbies pinned to a tree have surfaced.  There were a couple of other Barbies there a couple of months ago.  They were removed, but the new girls have arrived.  Creepy!

IMG_7589

I came across a duck standing on a rock….

IMG_7299

….he was displaced by an aggressive female duck who bit his tail….

IMG_7301

 

…its my rock now!  (what a rock hogging hag!)

IMG_7303

 

I also witnessed some police training in a vacant lot.  Cue the “chase” music….

IMG_7272

Crows were overturning some turf/dirt.  There must have been some grubs or worms below the surface….and they were fine to fight with each other for them.  (Love the “superhero” stance of the one in the last picture)

IMG_7498

IMG_7563

IMG_7574

Love the clouds behind this tree….

IMG_7588

..and in that tree…there was some “flirting and fluffing” going on.  Yup…it is spring….

IMG_7476

There were also a TON of tiny sparrows….who seemed unphased by me walking by.  Some just kept on walking themselves….

IMG_7333

 

…some jumped and looked just a little crazy….

IMG_7417

 

…some pointed downward…..

IMG_7430

…and others just “posed”.  They ARE cute, aren’t they?

IMG_7323

IMG_7339

IMG_7353

IMG_7397

IMG_7409

I used a couple of the birds on the daily photo groups.  The prompt for the Photo A Day Challenge is “from where I stand”.  From where I stood, this crow looked a little crazy….and as creepy as the Barbies.

16 feb 16 from where i stand

 

I put this sparrow into black and white for the Only Shades of Gray group.

16 feb 16 bw

And I didn’t post a bird on the 365 Days in Nature site.  The theme is green, and I posted this green bud because I thought the shape and the shade of green was pretty.

16 feb 16 of 365

The sunset on my walk home was pretty too….

IMG_7623

And now, the sun is setting on this post.  OMG…that is a groaner.  Hope all you have have a happy Tuesday….and Mother Nature…seriously, thaw out the east for my friends!!!  Or I’ll sick the crazy crow on you!!!  :)

There were all kinds of sights in the sky off of our deck this morning.  Gulls and something called a “Photo Blimp”.  No idea what the blimp thing is about….

IMG_6774

IMG_6787

..and soaring eagles.

IMG_6799

IMG_6830

Neva was in the thick of sky watching too.  :)

IMG_6860

We had birds in a nest, turkey bacon, green juice and coffee for brunch.  We used the fresh eggs that I got at the farmer’s market yesterday.

IMG_6869

“butterfingers” – oops!…

IMG_6863

IMG_6880

 

 

After lunch I went and had a visit with Cousin Helen.  Look at her lawn.  Yup, spring is here.  And that is ridiculously early! But we’re not complaining.

IMG_6881

IMG_6886

IMG_6887

Because it was lovely, Dennis and I went for a walk.  On the way to the park, we saw this guy.  AWWW!!!!

IMG_6888

IMG_6890

Here are Dennis and I…. :)

IMG_6898

…and just Dennis.

IMG_7108

Here are scenes around the Port of Vancouver.

IMG_6905

IMG_6907

IMG_6917

 

IMG_7044

And engagement photo shoot in the park…

IMG_6914

..no idea if these two are engaged.  But they made good foreground.

IMG_6910

There was also a fashion photo shoot going on.  We were chatting to the group, and they were happy for me to take shots too.  Fun!

IMG_7025

IMG_7112

IMG_7113

 

There were LOTS of dogs….this little guy liked HUGE “sticks”….

IMG_6965

IMG_6994

This Vader….

IMG_7115

…AWWW!!!!

IMG_7171

IMG_7164

This is not a dog….

Things that fly…if you are Mary Poppins, this would fly too.

IMG_7214

When we got home, we had a glass of wine, and some wensleydale cheese.

IMG_7223

IMG_7225

And dinner tonight was poached halibut with steamed greens, beans and some brown rice.  I topped it with some dijon/mayo sauce.

IMG_7227

We’ll end tonight’s post with the Photo A Day challenge photo.  The prompt is “spot”…and this is a dog we met in the park this afternoon….

15 feb 15 spot

…we found further green evidence that spring is well on its way.  I posted this shot on the 365 Days in Nature group….

15 feb 15 of 365

..and with permission, I’m posting this picture of today’s model bundling up (it may be sunny but it’s still a bit chilly) between photos on the Only Shades of Gray site.

15 feb 15 bw

That’s it for the weekend.  Hard to believe.  Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!!!

I’m sending love to all on Valentine’s Day!

I’ll start today’s post with the day’s menu recap.  My day started out with a toasted English Muffin with almond butter, maple flakes and kiwi.

IMG_6657

I got my hair “sassified” and took my hairdresser and I a cinnamon dolce non fat latte.  The barrista put a heart sticker on my cup.  Cute.

IMG_6672

 

Lunch was a few rice crakers and greek yogurt/kale dip.

IMG_6744

Dennis and I decided to have a night in, and had proscecco, Caesar salad and pizza.

IMG_6756

IMG_6770

IMG_6772

And we split this romantic little cake.  :)

IMG_6766

I used about 20 of my weekly points today, but that’s just fine.  I had them, and that is what they are there for.

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Love”.  I just LOVE this shot I took a few months ago.  I was walking behind this elderly couple, and their body language certainly said that they were very much in love.

photocat

I send love on the 365 Days in Nature group.  Which fit perfectly with the weekly “green” theme.

IMG_2594

And I posted yet another “heart” on to the Only Shades of Gray site.

IMG_6419

There was some bird action on our deck, and from our deck this morning.  Love the little red patch on the little hummingbird’s throat.

IMG_6666

I saw an eagle soaring through fog.  OOOH….

IMG_6659

And then a few eagles and hawks swooped down closer and flew away.  Very cool!

IMG_6661

IMG_6662

My hairdresser’s salon is VERY close to the Winter Farmer’s market.  I haven’t been there for quite a while, so took a walk around. Here are some of the sights in the area.

ANNND…I AM a 15 year old boy…I found some “mis-shapen” carrots in the bag I bought.

IMG_6768_1

On the way back to the car, I passed a snakey thing….

IMG_6695

…birds….

IMG_6697

…a tree stump with a little functioning door…..

IMG_6700

…a gorgeous black and white cat…..

IMG_6717

….who was showing off his scratching skills….

IMG_6711

…a second gorgeous black and white cat…..

IMG_6728

…who gave me the stink eye.  HA!  Maybe this is Vancouver’s answer to “Grumpy Cat”

IMG_6729

A couple of dogs, looking pretty hard for their people…

IMG_6703

IMG_6740

I found some hearts on little bird houses…..

IMG_6725

IMG_6735

…and another form of art.

IMG_6734

I want to go and sit here.  :)

IMG_6742

…and Neva lives in a stress free zone pretty much every day.   HA!

IMG_6753

Hope all of you have had a happy heart day!  And that your Sunday is a good one too!  Hearts to all!!!!

Happy Friday!!!  Bring on the weekend!  I had the day off work today.  I did some things around home, and went for a mini walk this afternoon.  My stomach has been a bit “off” today, so today’s menu is pretty dull….

I had some toasted Little Big Bread with cheddar cheese….

IMG_6556

…some green juice….

IMG_6648

..and Dennis picked up some chicken udon soup for me on his way home from work. (I’m lucky!)

IMG_6656

What a saucy little mascot I used today.  :)

IMG_6554

The Photo a Day Challenge prompt is “Temptation”.  I LOVE warm bagels…they are a big temptation for me.

13feb 13 temptation

And when I was grabbing the pic above from my “Granville Island Market” file, I found this bread shot, so flipped it into black and white and posted it on Only Shades of Gray.

13 feb 13 bw

I took this picture this afternoon, loved the colours, so posted it on the 365 Days in Nature group.

13 february 13 of 365

I took these pics on my walk today too…..there were SO many spring flowers.  They are SOOOO early this year.

IMG_6561

IMG_6566

IMG_6567

IMG_6570

IMG_6574

I found a few mushrooms/fungus too.  Mushrooms that should have been around in November.  Weird…

This dog looked like he was smiling/laughing at me.  AWW!

PicMonkey Collage

I noticed this man had a parrot on his shoulder (something you see every day…not!)….

IMG_6602

I went over to chat and ask for a photo, this is Archibald, aka: Archie.  He’s a rescue bird, they think he’s about 25 years old, and he’s friendly.  The owner asked if I’d like to have him on my hand/shoulder….I said yes, and Archie sat on my shoulder while we chatted.

IMG_6606

 

This bird is LESS friendly.

IMG_6638

…and was being watched by this guy.  Aww again!

IMG_6635

IMG_6633

Another bird in flight (I liked the look of the clouds)…

IMG_6540

…and one of our beloved hummingbirds coming in for a drink today.

IMG_6533

Hi Neva!

IMG_6550

Have a great weekend everyone!  Hope your Friday the 13th was uneventful.  :)

Today’s menu started out with toasted Little Big Bread, almond butter and a banana.

IMG_6318

During the morning, I had some fruit and green juice.

IMG_6325

IMG_6321

Lunch was a salad with spinach, roasted beets, quinoa/soybean salad, red peppers and light goat cheese.

IMG_6329

I had some greek yogurt later in the afternoon…and I seem to have deleted the photo.  Ooops!!!!  (it was lime flavoured, and looked exactly like the yogurt I had yesterday) :)

We had breakfast for dinner tonight because we were feeling a little lazy.  We had turkey sausage in the freezer, so they were baked, then served with scrambled eggs and toast.  Thanks to Dennis for the action bbq sauce shot.

IMG_6528

Before work I met up with Michelle and her famous hand…..

IMG_6319

…and after work I saw signs that someone is declaring his undying love to her.  HA!  Just kidding, Michelle’s husband is our friend Gary.  Brett…too bad, Gary is a star and you can’t take his place.  :)

IMG_6525

It was absolutely POURING here today, but no biggie, I went for a walk at lunchtime anyway.  And check out this sexy new umbrella I have!

IMG_6332

Technically, it is made to share.  But the off centre handle is PERFECT for me to take photos in stormy weather.  It keeps me and my camera dry.  It is probably stupid to be so excited about a mundane object, but I love it.  :)

IMG_6389

Puddle shot….

IMG_6390

I loved the pattern in this tree stump….

IMG_6512

…and wow…this is a HUGE cluster of snowdrops.

IMG_6509

 

I liked the symmetry and pop of red colour of these fixtures.

IMG_6333

Awww…..looks like this little fella wanted to come out and play in the rain.

IMG_6335

 

I’m not sure if I have walked around in a fog in the past, but I don’t remember there being TONS of mushrooms growing in the area in February.  I also don’t remember as many snowdrops and crocus’ out this early too.  Mother Nature is messing with us…..

IMG_6519

IMG_6523

I was watching four cormorants fishing in the ocean.  They were very efficient, and the little silver fish were swallowed with one gulp. Hmm…maybe I’ll have sushi tomorrow too.  :)

One bird is getting QUITE the earful from another at this feeder….

Even though it was mucky and wet, it was nice to be out and about.  I really love my lunchtime walks.

We’ll wind up tonight’s post with the Photo A Day Challenge prompt of “pointy”.  This bird has a very pointy beak, and is soaking wet.

12 feb 12 pointy

I kept with the foot theme in the 365 Days in Nature group.  These ducks had VERY muddy feet.

IMG_6500

And the last picture today is Neva in black and white.  I posted this on the Only Shades of Grey site.

IMG_0387

I have booked tomorrow off of work.  I’ve been feeling pretty tired these days, and since I have some vacation days to spare, I thought I’d make myself another long weekend.  I know I’m really lucky to have these days to play with, and will never take them for granted. Hopefully all of YOUR Fridays are good.  We’re all downhill to the weekend now!

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “On the Wall”.  I used this picture that I took a couple of weeks ago.  This is on the back of a building in an alley.  I don’t think too many people know it’s there…which is a shame.  It is a nice piece of public art.

IMG_0450

I used this goose shot for the 365 Days of Nature….

And I put this picture into black and white for Only Shades of Gray.

feb 11 bw2

Breakfast today was toasted Little Big Bread with apple butter.  And I had a cup of green juice.  Not pretty, but pretty tasty.

IMG_6128

IMG_6127

I had some fruit during the morning….

IMG_6124

I met my friend Laura for lunch today.  It was great to see her, we don’t work in the same neighborhood anymore, so we don’t see each other as often as we’d like.  I had the chicken/lettuce wraps.

IMG_6161

I had some greek yogurt at the end of the work day….

IMG_6131

I was initially planning on going to yoga after work, but timing didn’t work out.  So, I went for a two hour walk instead.  (Dennis is out tonight)  When I got home, I had leftover ratatouille with light goat cheese and fresh basil.

IMG_6316

Before I left for work this morning, we had our little deck visitors back.

IMG_6143

…and Neva was watching workmen at the building across the road from us.  It was cute, I saw them pointing at her…Awww.

IMG_6147

My first stop on my long walk was our little community garden plot.  Um…not sure how, but we seem to have three rogue garlic plants growing.  We haven’t planted any more garlic…so this is a bit surprising, but oh well.

IMG_6177

IMG_6178

I also found new green growth, some crocus’ and some “leaf skeletons”.

IMG_6165

IMG_6169

Here are a couple of pictures from the seawall….

IMG_6184

IMG_6207

And finally, here are a couple of random hearts.  (actually, there are a lot of hearts around…maybe they aren’t so random at all)

IMG_6163

IMG_6268

That was my day.  And tomorrow is my “Friday”.  Yay!  Have a wonderful Thursday all.  I’m sending “random hearts” to all of you!

I have a very very quick post tonight.  I’ve just got in from night school, will review the day, and catch up on photos tomorrow.

I had toasted Little Big Bread with almond butter and a banana for breakfast.

IMG_6002

I had some pineapple and kiwi mid morning.

IMG_6005

I met my friend Sharon for lunch today.  We went for sushi, I had veggie sunomono, tuna sashimi and a spicy tuna roll.

IMG_6070

IMG_6071

IMG_6073

This afternoon, I had a grapefruit sage kombucha.  (oooh…I see “life” in the jar where I’m growing a scoby for my own kombucha.  :) )

IMG_6078

I also had half of this bag of seaweed “chompers”.  The bag says they are strangely addictive….and they are.

IMG_6007

Dinner was a serving of the baked ratatouille I made yesterday.  (I topped it with light goat cheese and basil)

IMG_6118

Total Point today:   33  (4 weekly points used)

Activity Points:  Not many, just walked to and from work.

During those walks, I took a few shots that I’ll share.  Raindrops and premature leaves.

IMG_6018

IMG_6017

…a little patch of thick fog….

IMG_6062

…real life “angry birds”….

IMG_6047

IMG_6054

..and finally, the return of “cat or cushion”.

IMG_6009

Have a great Wednesday everyone.  I’ll be back tomorrow….

Happy Monday, and to those in my neck of the woods, “Happy Family Day”.  I spent the day with my little family, Dennis and Neva. Because we have the Family Day holiday, there was no work, and I had plans to go to yoga, do grocery shopping, visit Cousin Helen, go for a walk, etc, etc…   Well…I did no yoga, I used what we had in the fridge so didn’t go shopping, I talked to Cousin Helen on the phone, and I’m still in my pajamas.  Guess my body was just telling me to have a “chill day”, so I did.

Dennis and I had a nice cooked breakfast this morning, turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, toasted Little Big Bread with apple butter, and some fruit.  Today’s mascot is “creepy doll #1.  She needs a hair stylist.  :)

IMG_5957

 

…and the little birds on the deck had some seed.

IMG_5982

 

Neva was a little lazy as well…

IMG_5986

We had some popcorn while we watched bad daytime tv later in the afternoon….

IMG_5990

…and we had flatbread bbq chicken pizza for dinner. (mine had pesto, peppers, goat cheese, and grapes)

IMG_5998

 

…and I had some frozen cherries too.

IMG_6000

Total points eaten today:  29   Total activity points earned:  Nada

I also made some oven ratatouille with a bunch of veggies we had in the crisper. (eggplant, pepper, onion, fennel, beans)  I added tomato sauce, some basil and olives.  This will be dinner tomorrow….

PicMonkey Collage

IMG_5997

In other photos….ironically, today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “energy”.  I couldn’t be LESS energetic than I was today, so used this archive shot of a very energetic and happy dog playing on a beach.

IMG_4154

The gull doing the hokey pokey and putting his left foot in (HA!) was my offering for feet week on 365 Days of Nature…

IMG_1274

I put this photo, taken on a walk in a park close to my Mom’s place yesterday, into Black and White and posted it on Only Shades of Gray.

IMG_5870 1_1

And I posted this shot, also from yesterday’s walk on the “Wildbird, Wildlife and Nature” group I was invited to join.  (I don’t post to this group every day)

IMG_5883

There were SOOO many mushrooms to see on my walk.  I must have been blind in the past, because I don’t remember so many being around at this time of year.  But they must have been there before….  and they are beautiful.

The forest trail itself is beautiful too.  I’m lucky that it is so close to my mom’s home.  My Dad and I used to walk through here.  Its not the same without him, but I know he’s with me.

I wasn’t the only one out and about, and admiring the beauty.  This artist was painting the scenery…..

IMG_5919

 

…and this squirrel was eating it.  :)

IMG_5937

The tide was all the way in on the beach at the end of the trail, so there was no beach walk.  It was pretty anyway….

IMG_5789

IMG_5766

IMG_5805

And now, Creepy Doll #2 and #3.  My mom and I were thrifting yesterday afternoon and I saw these.  Most dolls have sweet faces, but these two?  Not sure….

IMG_5955

IMG_5956

I think they are a bit creepy!  :)

On to our workweek tomorrow.  And my spanish class.  So I’m off to do my homework.  Have a great week everyone!!!

Hi from my Mom’s house in Victoria.  This morning, I had breakfast on the ferry.  It was some oatmeal, fruit, coffee and a jar of my home made green juice (made with apples, spinach, kale, ginger and lime).  Since it was POURING with rain, and since I was on the ferry, I chose the gull in rain boots and hat mascot for the day.

IMG_5678

IMG_5680

I didn’t take many photos from the ferry for two reasons 1) it was rainy and gray and gross and 2) I fell asleep.  sigh.  Not a normal thing for me to sleep in public.  Hopefully I didn’t snore.  Or drool….   I did take this shot as the boat was docking…

IMG_5681

When I first got here, my Mom and I ran out and did some errands.  We passed a yard with QUITE the whimsical display around their trees.  Cute!  And if there wasn’t a little fence, I’d have put “rain gull” in there….oh well.

IMG_5684

IMG_5686

IMG_5687

IMG_5693

I made lunch for us before I left home this morning.  The pinwheels are weight watchers wraps with light cream cheese and ham, rolled up and cut, and the salad is quinoa, soybeans, pomegranate, mint, red pepper and scallions with an oil and vinegar dressing.

IMG_5697

We were out AGAIN this afternoon.  I saw this in a store window….

IMG_5703

…and we got my Mom a balloon.  She looks great, doesn’t she??

IMG_5706

My mom has little crocus’ coming up in her driveway.  How did bulbs get below a driveway that has been there for decades??

IMG_5744

We had a cup of tea and a cookie….

IMG_5749

…and we sent out for Chinese food for dinner. (it’s becoming a tradition)  I had won ton soup, a spring roll and a few spoons of chow mein and pork.  All points for the day….39….so I used 10 of my weekly flex points.  Which is what they are there for.

IMG_5750

The prompt for the Photo A Day challenge is “Stripes”.  I don’t have access to my archives here, so had to go with this photo of a stuffed turtle with a striped toque that was in the same store as the balloon.  No, I did not buy it…and I did ask permission to take the shot.

IMG_5704

I put this picture that is still on my Mom’s computer from my visit 2 weeks ago into black and white and posted on Only Shades of Gray.

IMG_2964-001

The weekly theme over at the 365 Days in Nature group is “feet”.  I didn’t see any “feet of nature” today, so I put rain gull in a puddle….his feet were in something in nature.  I know…it’s a stretch.  :)

IMG_5740-002

I’m not sure if I’ll be posting tomorrow, it’ll depend what time I get home tomorrow night.  If I don’t “see” you then, I’ll “see” you on Monday.  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!!!!

I am officially (again) counting weight watchers points an am trying to lose a few pounds.  Like I did when I started this blog some time ago, I documented my meals, my activity and my points….and I had my weightingfor50 mascots….

So today, we’re back to basics.  Here is my day’s menu…

Breakfast was toasted little big bread, an egg and tomato (5 points)

IMG_5281

I met my friend JenX for a coffee this morning.  I had an almond milk latte, which I counted as one point.

IMG_5283

 

Lunch was lentil soup with two mini slider flat outs with prosciutto and lettuce.  (10 points) I had the orange later. (counted as one)

I also had some seaweed snacks during the afternoon (1 point).  The shark looks like the backup dancer for Katy Perry’s Superbowl performance.  :)

And I went for an hour long walk at lunchtime, which earned me about 3 activity points.  Day one of “back to basics”  – check!

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Makes me smile”.  This clog in our sink makes me smile.  Oh NEVA!
