Smitten with our kittens – Lake and Skye

And all it took was a stray


I have a little story of joy for you today. I’d been getting some visits from someone’s cat lately. I knew this cat wasn’t a stray, for it was very well fed, healthy, spotlessly clean and wore a cute pink collar. She even smelled pretty. She’d come visit me on our patio while I was […]

My pallet wood walkway in the garden has kept me busy today. I’m starting to think that bloggers just shouldn’t have gardens. Actually, let me rephrase that… maybe we should just blog about them more so they’re kept up. 🙂 Back in the day I had a real green thumb. I use to even work […]

The all new photo BUILDING studio gameplan


It’s said that one shouldn’t take on renos in December. I do believe there’s some truth to that if you wish to maintain your sanity this time of year. However, with a hovering deadline to build something by Jan 15th for FOLK, I’m in dire need for a new place to build. My garage is […]
