bike riding for eggs-37

‘Twas a dreary, grey day this fine Sunday. But that didn’t stop us from firing things up right! We head to the local diner for lunch. Once home again, I couldn’t stay indoors. energetic ‘ol me – “Let’s go for a bike ride!” very full son – “No.” “No? Why not? It’s not raining… and if […]

Fall grapevine hugging a rustic shed-1083

Yawing to the beginning of a new day, I always like to glance outside before stumbling down the hallway towards the caffeine machine. The two cats are generally snoozing along side me somewhere, so after I scratched behind their ears, I stood up to take in the view. Overcast… normal. Wet… very normal. Green… oh yes. Quite […]

bikeride through nature-0984

I thought I was going to get the opportunity to go to a massive bucket list destination through work this fall. I’ve always dreamed of visiting New York. When I went to Toronto last year, I was ‘this close!’ But chose to stay there instead as it’s a destination in itself! But when my most recent […]

Funky Junk hits Disneyland-030

Nearly every day, my boy still brings up Disneyland. If it’s not about Disneyland, it’s about Disneyworld, which he has never yet visited.  And in my eyes, that means our Disneyland over Christmas trip was a massive success! Funny how all you think about is how tired you are when there, but once home looking at your pictures, you wish the […]

Every so often, my furry friends stay still long enough to capture on film. But that isn’t generally the case. They still love to happily dart from one side of the house to the other. So I was practising with shutter priority on the camera on this day. I’ll admit I’m not very good at […]

toolbox kit-7018

Did you notice I used some old shutters in this toolbox post? If you remember, I picked up the motherload of shutters from my neighbours. I put some shutters to work in my workshop by hiding some drywall holes. (great excuse for a cool wall treatment I say) As for the rest… They make a most excellent […]
