indignant Jo

Boy, did he stink.
But he was quite proud of the way he smelled....
he did NOT want to have a bath, but it's amazing with the lure of biscuits will do.... he still smelled after his bath.
Jo was not impressed.

The Comet and the Great Lake Swimmers

I am currently (yes still) going through my photos. Looking for ones that I deem 'portfolio worthy' I am loving this comet shot for sure.
While I puruse(sp?) my photos, I am listening to 'Your Rocky Spine' by The Great Lake Swimmers...awesome tune. Folky Rock with touch of what seems to be bluegrass roots...or so the banjo/mandolin would imply. They're offering free - 5 tunes here
I am still bent about my Flickr account...(I know..dead horse, still kicking it..) I can still upload photos to my old account...for all the good it'll do me...

Laura's Launderette

I want Laura to do my laundry.
I hung my freshly washed clothes on the line today....I didn't know this was the day they were gonna spread...pooh.
so, they're a mix of fresh air and pooh.

starting over

it feels really strange to be doing this.... photos that are similar to my 'other' id..
i feel sad, but what can I do? I feel like I've locked my keys in the car and I have no spare and no cell reception and I'm on a road with no houses.

flickr might love me, but yahoo sure doesn't.

Fresh Cut Flowers - $4

Well, I'm gonna need them.

It would appear that someone has hacked into my flickr and yahoo account and deactivated it. I am trying to get it back, but it's annoying as hell.

I should be in bed...really. it's LATE!
But here I am. enjoying the first fire of the fall.... taking self portraits. anything 'cute' I have to put on is in the bedroom...and my fella is asleep, so instead of my pj's for my self portraits...I have scrounged up some blue shorts, pink shirt and an apron...I think I've become sleep deprived and have lost my good(?) judgement....

Misty Morning

It was quite misty this morning. I spent a while out back taking photos of mist filled cob webs.
They are blackberries back there that I didn't know about.
and I inspected the cow corn back there too. (I think it's ready)
I left around 7:00 to take some more photos around the area.
This is one of my favorites of the day.

Grandma's Pink Flowers

I've finally given myself a few moments to have a peek at the photographs I took last weekend...I am loving these Japanese least, I think that's what they are.
They are in my fella's grandparent's backyard, and they have lovingly tended them for years I'm sure. it was overcast and rainy when I took these, and we were preparing to go down to The Point.
I have already printed these off and either plan to put them in my portfolio and/or in guest bathroom/darkroom.

Memory Lane

This car and emailing with friend about craft fairs has me walking down memory lane for sure...
a while back my sister and I did a craft was before crafting was cool (ie: I was surrounded by plastic canvas needle point, crochet acrylic pink baby sweaters (on matching crochet hangers) made from 1950's Beehive books, and knitted toilet paper covers...I made $70 (mostly from family) sadly my sister is gone now, so it's quite a nice memory to have.
I don't know where I got the nerve (or the idea...but...) I was selling hot chocolate and mug sets...not just any mugs....thrifted mugs from the goodwill! LOL..again...that was before thrifted stuff was cool... lol. Gilligan's Island was in re-runs and I just kept thinking that I wanted the mugs to look like coconuts... I guess we should've known better than to do a 'crap fair' - as we put it - at the same place where the social bingo is held....there's another memory! The prize table just got sadder and sadder.... there was 'Christmas in july' prizes and Big cans of Apple Juice and Kraft Dinner... but we all went anyway! lol.

Cornflower Cottage

This cute fella was found at Cornflower Cottage Antiques (in Chilliwack) and this photo will make a great gift for one of the "moms to be" that I know...I hate parting with the little guy, and before I do, I'll be sure to make a pattern from him. Also, my photo notecards can now be found at this lovely antique store.
a print of this photo can be found in my shop.
It's actually been sunny here for the last 4 days (in an actual row!) and it finally feels like summer...I met 2 of the neighbors last night. out at the mail box...after someone made a bon fire out of the 3 of them on the weekend... crazy. then yesterday, someone dumped scrap wood on the lawn...(starting to wonder what kind of place my fella made me move to!)

today was spent gathering and cutting firewood....ok, so this wasn't done by me....but I was there with my fella...and while he cut wood to keep us warm through the winter months, I roamed the side of a mountain taking photos... this one is my favorite of the day, so I thought I'd share it with you.
