I’m tired, the title for this post…well, just not coming to me.  Sorry for the lame one.

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Dreaming”.  I went with this picture that I took a few weeks ago.  I think this man is having a mid day snooze, and no doubt, he’s dreaming! :)

26 june 26 dreaming

Before work this morning, I met Michelle and her famous hand for coffee.  Her fingers were doing a yoga pose….it looks a bit like the “should have peed before class” pose!

IMG_0792

The “green eating” continues.  Since the dishes are pretty and colourful, I’ll share pics today.  Breakfast this morning was Chia pudding with fruit and granola….

IMG_0797

I had some green juice (apple, kale, spinach, ginger) and a big container of 1 tbsp each of apple cider vinegar and maple syrup in water.   (and yes, that is a “horses rear”.  I acquired it at work, not because I am one, but I give it the respect it deserves.  ha)

IMG_0796

Lunch was a salad with greens, beet, orange, carrot, tomato, kamut, some light feta and my home made balsamic dressing.

IMG_0794

I had some cherries that I forgot to photograph, and dinner tonight was chicken in Indian sauce (I had an indian spice mix, that I added to tomato sauce, along with peppers, onion, garlic and fresh tomato), quinoa and roasted carrots and edamame.

IMG_0880

One of my collagues bought me a bag of Japanese candy.  Butter and salt candy.  Tastes a bit like a cross between a shortbread cookie, and popcorn.  Honestly, it’s a bit much, but the thought was super sweet (no pun intended), and I love the translation on the bag.

IMG_0831

I walked to and from work today, but ran errands at lunchtime so didn’t have a long walk.  I did take a few pictures when I was out and about though….

I saw these in a garden bed, and thought the greys would make an interesting shot…

IMG_0799

Power line reflection in building under construction….

IMG_0814

…a bad speller (heh, heh…)…..

IMG_0816

One of my pit stops was the pet store for some supplies for Neva.  This is Spencer, the current adoptable (so many kitties lately!)….he was SOOOOOO friendly.  (they let him roam so people can pat him if he’s willing.  He was, but he was also hissing at a dog that dared to look at him.  AWWW.  I love his little “bow tie” mustache)

IMG_0805

IMG_0808

A pretty (and very fragrant) rose….

IMG_0826

This was an adornment on a gate….

IMG_0827

HUGE leaves (lens cap on for perspective)…

IMG_0860

…with ladybugs….

IMG_0862

IMG_0866

…and another bug.

IMG_0817

No, the duck isn’t walking on water, but it looks like she’s trying….

IMG_0835

This is the top of the tomato plant we have on our deck.  We may have a decent crop….

IMG_0870

…however, this is the bottom of the plant.  This may not end well…..

IMG_0873

Amazing clouds off of our deck tonight…

IMG_0878

And to close, the daily hearts…..one in the HUGE leaves….

IMG_0861

..one being formed by hosta leaves….

IMG_0829

…a dog outfit for Canada Day in the pet food store.  Oh dear….

IMG_0812

…and I think this is someone proclaiming that they love cheese.  Mind you, I think this was written by the same person who can’t spell (above), so maybe the cheese isn’t cheese at all.   Maybe he/she loves turned over semi trucks, a wonky baseball diamond from up above, or just a geometric pattern with no meaning at all.

IMG_0815

That’s it for today.  Anyone have plans for the weekend?  Have a great Friday all!!!

Thanks for all the well wishes for Dennis’ birthday.  We had a lovely little celebration last night, which included a mini lemon meringue pie (his favorite) and sparklers.

IMG_0216

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is ‘Sun Flare’.  I used this picture from last month, because I liked the way the flare looks like it is on the ground.

25 june 25 sun flare

I’ve been on a really “clean” eating kick lately.  My skin is smoother, my digestion is good, and other than my whopping fatigue last weekend, my energy and mood have been better too.  I’ve lost a few pounds, which is great, but my main focus at the moment is making/eating a lot of fresh fruit,veg,grains,lean meats and dairy.  I have no intention of going vegan, gluten free and not having the occasional ‘treats’ (see pie above!) but so far so good.

Every day, I have a tbsp of apple cider vinegar and a shot of maple syrup (makes it more drinkable) in a big container of water.

This morning, I took some “Oh She Glows” chia pudding (chia in almond milk) with the last of my stewed plums and 2 tbsp granola.

IMG_0266

Lunch was based on a raw recipe that I pulled out of a detox cookbook that I bought in a garage sale last summer.  The base is “parsnip tabbouleh” (I found it on line – click on the link if you want to see it),  but I stirred some basil and cooked kamut into the mixture, and wrapped it in chard leaves.  So good!!!

IMG_0257

IMG_0260

During the day, I had some berries and figs during the morning, and a hard boiled egg before yoga.

Dinner was leftover quinoa/black bean cakes that we had in the freezer (leftover from Helen’s birthday brunch a couple of weeks ago)

I had a lot of exercise today too.  I walked to work, I walked at lunchtime, I walked to yoga, I had a great sweaty yoga class, and I walked home from yoga too.

Here are some of the pics from the day.  I wasn’t the only one going for a walk at lunchtime…

IMG_0271

…blossoms with a light sculpture in the background….

IMG_0301

..other blossoms that look like the sparkler in Dennis’ birthday treat.

IMG_0304

Random birds….the top one is a baby telling it’s mom that lunch would be nice.  Well, that is my interpretation….

IMG_0345

IMG_0360

This one looks angry….

IMG_0465

..just hanging out….

IMG_0399

Isn’t this goose casting a ‘dance-y’ shadow?

IMG_0485

Speaking of geese, the gawky teens/young adults were flapping about again tonight…

IMG_0594

IMG_0603

..poor less than attractive little thing!  However, he/she will be a full adult very soon.

IMG_0509

AWWWW…..ducklings that are still babies.  AWWW!

IMG_0648

IMG_0672
Artsy fartsy feather shot…..

IMG_0477

Artsy fartsy shadow shot….

IMG_0621

And another artsy, but not so fartsy ( :) ) shadow shot…

IMG_0789

Speaking of dogs….isn’t he a beauty??  This is Chase, he’s a rescue, and the owner says “I saved Chase, but in a way, he saved me too”.  AWWW….

IMG_0767

I LOVE this shot.  The cloud looked like a gull in flight, and while I was taking a shot, a gull actually flew by.

IMG_0391

Just another day in the park….

IMG_0383

People on the seawall were checking out the geese….

IMG_0750

Paddleboarders were falling a lot, and waving for photos.  I’m sure it takes quite a while to get the hang of it and get your balance….

IMG_0407

Speaking of balance, there was a kids paddling camp at the rowing club.  They were obviously having a blast, and the instructors were absolutely fantastic with the kids!  While I was watching them, I caught this…going…

IMG_0432

…going….

IMG_0433

…gone.

IMG_0434

Speaking of fun in the water….this couple braved the cold skanky water to have a little aquatic snog!  :)  In a very public area.  I guess sometimes the mood just hits…….

IMG_0758

And finally, speaking of love…here are the daily random hearts.  A boot, a chalk drawing, and my favorite, a picture that has three of my favorite things all in one (an insect, kale and the heart)

IMG_0305

IMG_0622

IMG_0289

That was my day.  Anyone getting up to anything fun in YOUR neck of the woods?  Let me know…

Big Happy Birthday to Dennis!!!!  This will be a pretty quick post, we have dinner being delivered, then we’ll be unplugging and just relaxing for the rest of the evening!

So quick daily recap – today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is ‘This is what June looks like”.  Around here, there are all kinds of graduations in June, so I used this picture from my nephew’s high school graduation last week.

24 june 24 June looks like graduation season

When I was out and about on my walks today, I found blooms and greenery…

IMG_0124

IMG_9960

IMG_9968

IMG_9971

…sap on a tree that looked pretty…..

IMG_9955

..feather and raindrops in a pond….

IMG_9982

…dogs in the dog park….

IMG_9978

…another dog waiting for it’s owner….

IMG_0120

…the last of this round of radishes and some salad greens in our community garden…

IMG_9964

IMG_9967

..a bra on the sidewalk.  Wonder what the story here is….

IMG_0117

I walked by the kitty adoption centre….there was one Mini Neva that has gone to it’s home, another baby is spoken for (not sure when he/she will leave) so the Mini Mom Neva and one of the kitties are still adoptable.  It is VERY hard not to walk in and take them all.  :)  Don’t tell my Neva!!

IMG_0030

IMG_0101

IMG_0106

There is also a tabby mom and two stripey babies who are adoptable (though the vet I was talking to said it looks like someone is VERY interested in the mom)

IMG_0075

IMG_0001

Here is the artsy fartsy shot of the day…kittens through the legs of mom.  HA!

IMG_0045

I found two random hearts today, one of the banana I had at breakfast, and the other was a cherry that I had with lunch.

IMG_9948

IMG_0115

As I said earlier, dinner is on the way, we’ve poured some sparkling wine….

IMG_0127

…and I’m off to celebrate with the Birthday Boy!  Happy Wednesday all!!

I saw a whole bunch of beauty today.

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “In This Moment”.  I used this photo from last fall.  This was quite the moment, fog was lifting, sun was shining through, then reflected off the building.   I really was lucky to see this!

23 2 in the moment

Also beautiful?  The sky from our deck this morning!  Well, I thought it was beautiful.

IMG_9307

And more beauty?  A colleague of mine’s gorgeous mehndi from her Sister’s wedding celebrations.

IMG_9320

I had a great lunch with my friend Carli today.  We laughed A LOT!  That was beautiful.  As was our gyoza, double spicy tuna rolls and yellow town rolls.

IMG_9322

IMG_9324

I don’t think many would argue that these blossoms are beautiful…..

IMG_9328

IMG_9318

IMG_9524

IMG_9532

IMG_9871

Unfortunately, work prevented me from getting to yoga in time tonight.  I walked down anyway, to pay my monthly fee and to take a few pictures in the area.  I thought the pop of these hot peppers were pretty against the paper bag….

IMG_9591

…Batman was here!!!  Beautiful!  :)

IMG_9594

…and I would love to play with this Scruffy puppy named Rudy.  He is beautiful!  And VERY energetic!!!

IMG_9924

Now…we move into the “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” section.  I LOVE insects (and snails), but I know some don’t think they’re beautiful.   If that is the case, scroll down…

IMG_9335

IMG_9357

IMG_9403

IMG_9428

..not particularly beautiful, but still entertaining is the huge group of goslings/geese that are in the neighborhood.  The “gawky teens” aren’t so cute and beautiful at the moment….we have bad “hair” days…

IMG_9649

..goofy “runs” because the babies can’t quite fly yet.  They do a whole lot of hopping though.  And preening.  And stretching.  I guess the new adult feathers growing in may itch.

IMG_9675

IMG_9682 2

IMG_9710

IMG_9738

IMG_9754

IMG_9690

IMG_9640

IMG_9487

IMG_9505

There were a couple of “goose flotillas” that went by.  One by a marina, the other by the dragon boat pier.

IMG_9884

IMG_9896

Ducklings are also in the process of becoming adults and getting new feathers, so look a little dishevelled.

IMG_9466

But these are full grown…

IMG_9835

IMG_9856 2

Crows and pigeons….

IMG_9515

IMG_9735

IMG_9875

Again, beauty in the eye of the beholder….this little fella ran in front of my while I was waiting to cross a main road.  He paused, I took the photo, and he was GONE…..kinda gross, but KINDA cute too!   Kinda….

IMG_9941

And finally, some random hearts from today.  Some beautiful, some less so, but all unmistakable hearts….

IMG_9329

IMG_9584

IMG_9593

IMG_9764

Have a beautiful Tuesday everyone!  It is a special day in the land of weightingfor50…..see you then!  :)

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge Prompt is “growing”.  I posted this picture of the first bean to come through the soil in our garden plot.

22 june 22 growing

 

 

Happy to report my energy is slowly returning today.  I still felt tired, but not the wicked tired I had yesterday.  First thing this morning, I walked down to our little garden to have one more radish harvest, replant more, and water and care for everything else there.

On the way down, I saw a bunch of bugs…the first was this green one, he walked onto my hand from a leaf, then wildly flapped his wings.  He didn’t fly away…I have no idea what he was telling me.  And for the record, he smelled bad.

IMG_1863

…this spider was wrapping something up in his web.  Nature can be pretty dark sometimes…

IMG_9189

…speaking of dark…here is a dark coloured insect that was HUGE.  Well, relatively speaking anyway, I’d say he was about the size of a strawberry….

IMG_9192

…and of course, I saw many flying bees….

IMG_9199

I have no idea what this bug is….

IMG_9282

I just LOVE the colour that these hydrangeas are turning….

IMG_9168

…and the little “pinwheel pattern” of these growing leaves caught my eye.

IMG_9206

I also played with this photo in photocat.  I liked the way the shadows were cast, so turned it black and white to get an even bigger shadowy effect.

photocat

Here is our little plot today….

IMG_9211

Today’s harvest (it’ll be very exciting when I pull up vegetables other than radishes… :) )

IMG_9215

This is Jovan and his grandma Pam.  They were just passing by, we started chatting and I let Jovan help me water.  Cute!!

IMG_9217

I came home via the dog park.  Such a happy place!

IMG_9226

IMG_9231

IMG_9251

IMG_9281

Tonight, we had a lovely evening with Cousin Helen.

IMG_9287

We had wine and Caesar salad to start…

IMG_9288

IMG_9289

My dinner was seafood/spinach/tomato pasta, which came with garlic toast….

IMG_9290

IMG_9291

…and dessert was a strawberry parfait.

IMG_9293

Helen’s garden has some BEAUTIFUL iris’ at the moment.  I have to share….

IMG_9298

IMG_9305

Finally, the day’s random heart was down at our community garden.

IMG_9214

That’s it for the weekend.  Have a GREAT first week of summer everyone!!

Hello Summer!!!

Summer-Solstice-SessionToday’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Here I Am”.  Here I am right by my hairdresser’s.  As you can see, the salon is on Main St.  I’d like to think I channeled my inner Bob Segar, and am looking “Down on Main Street”.  (anyone remember that song??)  OMG…earworm!   Sorry….

21 june 21 here i am

My energy was non existent today.  Weird.  I’m not sure if I’m fighting something, if I just didn’t get enough sleep over the last few days (probably), or what, but I opted out of yoga this morning because the idea of doing a downward dog and any other pose just didn’t work for me.  I slept most of the morning, then went out for a haircut.  On Main St.  :)

While I was waiting for the cut, I noticed this book.  The pop-up book of Phobias!  HA!  Not to be read by people with strong and true phobias….having things pop out at you, even from a book could be, well, scary….

IMG_9128

…I thought it was brilliant.  Here are just a few…

IMG_9130

IMG_9131

IMG_9132

Creepy, but really well done!

When I was walking back to the car I saw some lovely blooms….

IMG_9139

IMG_9150

…a very funky tree trunk….

IMG_9140

…and an Inukshuk adorned with a green shamrock bow tie.

IMG_9142

After my haircut, I came home and napped for a couple of hours.  DEFINITELY not normal for me…my body was telling me something today, so I listened.  It meant I didn’t get things done today that I’d planned, but oh well.

Tonight, we had a lovely dinner with our friends Melisa and Evan.  Their baby will be here in just a few weeks!

IMG_9158

We had wine (and non alcoholic wine for Melisa – and me, as I was the driver tonight)

IMG_9154

Bread, dips and olives to start….

IMG_9155

LOVE the napkins!

IMG_9157

Dinner was grilled chicken, potatoes and carrrots, and salad with greens, strawberries, cheese and almonds.

IMG_9165

IMG_9164

Dessert was tropical, fruity, light and delicious!

IMG_9167

Today’s random heart was found in ‘Baby’s’ room.

IMG_9152

IMG_9153

Cute!!!  Thanks Melisa and Evan!!!!

My energy and I will be back tomorrow!  Happy Solstice everyone!!!!

Catching up with the Photo A Day Challenge, since I didn’t post yesterday.  The prompt for the 19th was “Habit”.  I certainly have my habits..some good (I’m a fantastic little flosser, if I don’t say so myself!! :)), some less so (no details needed – ask Dennis)…but none of my habits are unusual, interesting or particularly easy to photograph.  Know what else is hard to find?  NUNS wearing habits!!  Nope, couldn’t find a living breathing nun, or a picture of a nun, or a greeting card with a nun, or a solar powered waving nun……I found NONE of those!  :)   I was fretting a little, but was walking to work this morning and saw a complete stranger smoking.  I asked him if I could take a picture of his fingers and the smoking cigarette.

19 june 19 habit

He acknowledged he had a bad habit, and also asked that I didn’t use his name or any identifiable body part when I posted the picture.  He is (in his words) a “closet smoker” and doesn’t want anyone to know.  I respect that Mr. Smoker, but sincerely hope you quit sometime soon!  :)

Today’s challenge prompt is “YAY”.  I used this picture from a few months ago, of a Dad and his daughter playing, and yelling YAY every time she went in the air.  The Dad’s name is Dave, and he gave me permission to post on social media (meaning my blog) so I assume it is ok to post on the photo a day site too.  YAY!!!!!

20 june 20 yay

And there is also nothing more “YAY worthy” than a good game of “toss the baby”!  KIDDING!!!!!

Quick menu recap, then we’ll get to a few pics from the day:

Breakfast was Oh She Glows chia pudding with stewed plums and 2 tbsp granola.  (I ate at my desk, and grossed out a couple of my co-workers.  I acknowledge it wasn’t pretty, but it was good!)

Lunch also grossed a couple of my fast food eating colleague out…but oh well.  It was my massaged kale salad with nutritional yeast, mango, grapes and light feta.

Dinner:  I made mini turkey meatloaves with roasted vegetables and curried rice.  So good, so healthy.

Extras:  green juice, greek yogurt, a little granola bar, radishes, some blueberries and 1/2 bottle (yup) of white wine.

Here are the pics from the day….

Yesterday, I picked the “bouquet o’ radishes”…..

IMG_8745

…and when I washed and cut the roots off today, I found that the radishes have, in fact, be grown with love!  HA!  Me and my “hearts”….

IMG_9024

Neva seems to have reverted to her kitten behavior.  She’s climbing where she hasn’t in a long time (she’s suddenly a ‘mountaineer”) and is back to wanting sink drinks…NEVA!!!

IMG_9014

…she also planted herself in a pan tonight, when I was in our pan cupboard and grabbing a different pan from the back.  NEVA!!!

IMG_9113

Crazy cat!!!

During my walk to work this morning, I found yet another snail (I love snails)….

IMG_9020

…and a doll waiting for its owner to find it.

IMG_9016

I also came across a TON of ladybug larvae and ladybugs themselves….

IMG_9026

IMG_9035

IMG_9057

At lunchtime, I went for a walk despite cloudy skies and pending rain…

IMG_9080

…and I found a plastic hand in a curb….

IMG_9062

…so I took it on my walk with me….

IMG_9065

IMG_9067

IMG_9070

IMG_9073

IMG_9077

IMG_9099

IMG_9100

IMG_9101

IMG_9106

Couple of random shots….I LOVE the pattern of this plant…

IMG_9095

…and we had a little visitor on our deck tonight.  (not sure how Neva knows they’re there…she’s deaf, but if a bird is on the deck, we know because she goes into “hunter mode’ and checks them out…)

IMG_9119

Here are a few random hearts (over and above the radish heart)…

IMG_8709

IMG_8833

IMG_8727

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!!!

Today’s post is going to be a very quick, photo recap of my day.  (it is very late….full details will follow later)

I met Michelle and her famous hand for coffee before work….

IMG_8707

I took a walk at lunchtime and saw beautiful flowers….

IMG_8710

IMG_8711

…the odd bug or two…..

IMG_8720

IMG_8724

IMG_8748

…and I had the second harvest of radishes from our little garden plot.

IMG_8738

Love this picture of a group of kids sitting and watching the world go by.

IMG_8818

After work, I took the train and went downtown.

…note to self, never park my bike (that I never ride :)) beside the train station….

IMG_8838

…some pigeons look like snowy owls…..

IMG_8854

…but some don’t….

IMG_8856

…the sculpture for whatever reason reminds me of Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s Lady of the Lake (with Excalibur)  And all I could think of was that it was a “farcical aquatic ceremony” HA!  Gotta love Monty Python….

IMG_8860

…I added my gum to this public interactive artwork.  Kinda gross I know….but amazing nonetheless.  (and I was very careful to only touch my gum and not the sculpture itself)

IMG_8873

IMG_8885

IMG_8876

…I saw figurines of Neva and I in a window (:) ) ….

IMG_8891

…and a solar waving pope.

IMG_8900

The reason I went downtown was to attend my nephew Ryan’s high school graduation. CONGRATULATIONS RYAN!!!!

IMG_8938

IMG_8925

IMG_8983

IMG_8985

OK…it’s REALLY late, so I’ll sign off and be back with a more news tomorrow.  Happy Friday all!!

Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “quirky”.  I used this picture from last summer of the quirky tradition at Vancouver Canadians Baseball Games – the running of the sushi.  In this particular race, looks like Cucumber Roll beat California Roll, and wasabi fell and didn’t finish the race.

18 june 18 quirky

This is doubly appropriate today, because it is, in fact, International Sushi Day!  That in itself, is quirky as well!!

Today has been a non-routine day because I worked off-site for the bulk of the day.  (way off site…I was about an hour commute from my regular workplace)  Eating has been a bit “all over”, and my normal exercise hasn’t really happened.

I had a weight watchers bagel with peanut butter and banana for breakfast.  Some watermelon before I left.  I had a turkey sandwich there, and some cheese and crackers during a break.  Because I got home MUCH later than normal, and Dennis was also out and about, I picked us up some sushi on the way home.  (that is where I found out about International Sushi Day).  We split the order of gyoza, a California Roll, a Dynamite Roll, a Mr. Green (aka: vegetable) roll.  We both had miso soup too.

IMG_8700

IMG_8703

Also quirky….Neva!  I took this photo of her this morning.  She has no legs!  :)  Is it a cat, or a cushion???  :)

IMG_8503

After my meeting, I “opted out” of an event, and went for a quick walk instead.  I walked to the train through a residential area, a construction zone and a beautiful park….here are a few shots…

Crane reflection….one crane, many images

IMG_8507

…condoms and paper airplanes by the construction zone.  UM….I’d think the park would be a more comfortable place to play.  Just sayin….

IMG_8591

IMG_8617

Shadows….

IMG_8592

IMG_8675

…by the residential complex.  The area can’t spread any more outward, so it’s spreading UPWARD.  There are SO many cranes and highrises around….

IMG_8595

IMG_8616

IMG_8618

As you can see from the following shots, the park is lovely and full of creatures (four and two legged), art, fountains and pathways….

IMG_8698

What was the quirkiest thing you did today?  Happy Thursday!!!!

I played catch up with the  Photo A Day Challenge .  Yesterday’s prompt was “In the Shadows”, and today’s was “Peaceful”…

16 June 16 in the shadows

17 june 17 peaceful

All caught up now!

Today, I had yogurt, fruit and granola for breakfast

Lunch was a kale salad with nutritional yeast, light feta, dried cranberries, mango and pumpkin seeds

Dennis and I were ships passing in the night tonight, and we had turkey sausage and scrambled eggs at various times.

Extras – green juice, watermelon, rice crackers & hummus

Exercise – Walk to work, lunchtime ramble, walk home

I felt really lucky when I was out at lunchtime.  I live in the 3rd largest city in Canada, but work/live in areas with lots of green space, close to the ocean and inhabited by creatures other than humans.  I may live in a large city, but I can, for short times, feel like I’m out in nature.

I was up really early this morning, and the clouds before sunrise looked pretty. (this was taken from our deck)

IMG_8193

It has been really rainy here for the last few days.  This plant was hanging on to the raindrops on its leaves.

IMG_8195

I found the standard insects in the area…

IMG_8200

IMG_8213

IMG_8226

IMG_8235

And some non-standard bugs….I found a big cluster of tiny empty eggs and babies.  Amazing!!!!!  Does anyone know what these are?  Beetles?

IMG_8249

IMG_8295

IMG_8273

 

Blossoms and grasses that looked pretty….

The next few pics aren’t SUPER clear, but are well worth sharing.  I saw a mom bird feeding her babies today.  So cute!!!!

Other birds that I saw….

IMG_8392

IMG_8407

IMG_8413

I found two snails (and you know I love the snails…)

IMG_8490

Boost!
