Unplugging and retreating

read

This past weekend, I had an opportunity for unplugging and retreating with about 25 wonderful gals from my church. I really didn’t know what to expect. This was pretty much out of my element and comfort zone. But I quickly found out the 24 others felt pretty much the same way, which made for a […]

The cute little shed in the middle of fall

read

The cute little shed in the middle of fall wears fall well. The canning jar lid wreath continues to rust away in the most perfect of ways. Isn’t it interesting how some lids didn’t rust? I love the quirky mix! The grapevine gone crazy is spectacular this time of year, wearing it’s vivid yellow self. […]

A little R&R at a bed and breakfast

read

In my last post, I talked about taking my son to camp for the weekend, and rather than do all this driving for hours, I decided to look into staying at a bed and breakfast instead. I mean, to enjoy a new town by yourself, eating where you want and shopping wherever you please? What […]

Walks, and dinner at the river

read

Remember my quest for staying productive? Part of that was to fire up my daily walks again. Can you put up with yet another post not related to junk?! Thank-you! It’s flipped back to summer weather here again and there’s just so many other things to do that are just as much fun! Well… close. […]

Our Summer Adventure 6 – dreamy cottage grounds

read

Recap Part 5 / The TV Fix Waking up to a gorgeous day, I grabbed my fresh brewed coffee, and started to wander through the house. Approaching the sun filled picture window wrapped with vintage moulding, my eye caught movement outside… and I froze… – – – – – Back home, if you looked out […]

If I lived near Cultus Lake…

You believe in dreaming, don’t you? Oh good! I hope you’ll dream with me for a moment as I relive our last camping trip to beautiful Cultus Lake, located in the lower mainland of BC Canada.   If I lived near Cultus Lake, I would walk here every morning with a whole carafe of coffee, […]

The White Rock adventure… with one crazy story

read

Last summer I blew it. I don’t know what happened, but work took over to the point of us not even making it to the beach! I swear I don’t know what happened. And we only live 15 min from a lake, 2 minutes from the river, and 45 min to amazing resorts. Well, this […]

Outdoor pics and cute cats… with an iPhone

read

You can pin this post from HERE (regular pinning isn’t working at the moment!) I went for a little walk behind my house with the iPhone.  This area is a little city owned park that leans against farmland. If you walk just far enough into the chestnut trees where the mowers can’t mow, that’s where […]

A quick change camera lens bed

camera lens bed

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the run, taking pictures. I never take the time to tote the camera bag along, or much else. It’s basically grab the camera with one lens on it, grab the other lens and off I go! The tricky part of course comes when you want to […]

4 – Touring historic Pennsylvania

read
touring historic Pennsylvania

One of my VERY favourite things about touring in the states are the quaint old historic towns. Give me the choice of a visit to Washington, DC or a local quiet downtown road loaded with little brick buildings, and it’s no contest. I’m a small town girl and LOVE quiet meandering streets loaded with history. […]
