Sunrise this morning (from our deck) was pretty….
…and then the sky looked like this. OOOH!
The day’s menu following the deck photos started out with a poached egg and light cheese on an english muffin….
I had some green juice (that I made with apple, kale, spinach, ginger and lime) and some mango/kiwi and blueberries during the morning….
Lunch was a ham sandwich on Little Big Bread, with carrots from Saturday’s Farmer’s Market. The carrots were soooo sweet.
When I got home from work, I had a Guava Kombucha. (can’t wait to make my own! My scoby is growing!!! :) )
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)
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!
And ewww….blooms and buds. EWWW!!!! :)
More mushrooms today….some right way up, others upside down….
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!
I came across a duck standing on a rock….
….he was displaced by an aggressive female duck who bit his tail….
…its my rock now! (what a rock hogging hag!)
I also witnessed some police training in a vacant lot. Cue the “chase” music….
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)
Love the clouds behind this tree….
..and in that tree…there was some “flirting and fluffing” going on. Yup…it is spring….
There were also a TON of tiny sparrows….who seemed unphased by me walking by. Some just kept on walking themselves….
…some jumped and looked just a little crazy….
…some pointed downward…..
…and others just “posed”. They ARE cute, aren’t they?
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.
I put this sparrow into black and white for the Only Shades of Gray group.
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.
The sunset on my walk home was pretty too….
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!!! :)
