Good morning Internet,

Hope all is well with everyone out there.  Today I decided I just wanted to ramble.  My daughter is turning 18 in about a week and holy moly does it ever make me feel like I am getting old.  I know I am not old at all but some days if feels like it.  Other times I wish I could go out to the bar with her.  I love to dance (not much for drinking a couple of bear through the night is all I need) but for me to go to the bar with her I would be cramping her style.  You know how kids are....LOL

My mom and I are going out to our cabin tomorrow morning for the night we need to pack some things up before the winter frezz comes in and recks everything.  The mess we would have to clean up if all our pop cans or beer bottles burst because they froze.  You see we don't have central heating in our cabin only a wood stove.  It works really well when we are their to stooke it but doesn't work very well if it is not getting any wood.

I have started my photography class.  I feel a little over my head and scared that I will not do as well as the people in my class. I am going to plug along with it becuse I need to face the fear....At least that is what I keep telling myself. 

Have a great weekend Internet

Good afternoon internet,

First off I have to say I have an alergy to all cored and pitted fruits.  It really sucks because at one time I did not have this allergy and I really miss the taste of a fresh juicy apple just off the tree.  With that out of my system.  My husband and grand daughter humoured me in doing a Photo shoot in our back yard.  Below are my favorite pics out of the shoot.  Let me know what you think.

This one is a little dark.  But I think you get how very happy she is up in the Air.

Have a wonderful weekend internet.  I will have some parade pics for you sometime next week.

Coffee & Sunshine

Good afternoon Internet,

Well today is a day filled with coffee and NO sunshine. It is very smokey here as the winds have brought it over from BC. Hopefully all the rain we get this weekend (or are supposed to get) will bring it down a bit. 

I have been having a writers block for the last little while but I have decided that I will not worry about it when I write here it is for me so when I want to write I will.

Have a great weekend Internet

30 Day Journal challenge

Hello Internet...

Off to a great start on the challenge......Man 3 days in and I am already behind...I am hoping that the weekend will give me a few days to catch up and then be on the right track come Monday.  I am really liking the prompts they have been fun.  Drawing out my creativity which is why I joined in the first place.

I am not sure about showing anyone my pages yet thought as they will look like a 6 year old did them...But I guess that is the part of the purpose of break out of my shell so once I am done I will just have to "pull the bandaid of quick" and put the pages up. 

I am going to Capital ex tonight with my Husdand, daughter and granddaughter.  My Husband doesn't really want to go but we are dragging him along anyway.  I think it will be a great time.

It was my birthday on Sunday.  I spent the day with my mom out at our cabin cleaning it up for this weekend.  It is typically a party weekend should be fun.  even if I am getting old...LOL

Goals for this week:

  • Get journal pages finished
  • Post pics of my journal pages
  • Edit Mad and Morg's engagement pics 
  • Get signed up for Photography class in the fall
That's it for now Internet have a great week I will talk to you later this week.

Don't Forget To Be AWESOME!!!

30 Day Journal Challenge

Good morning Internet,

As I sit here at work on this dizmal day.  (it has been raining non stop the the past 24 hours) I think that I haven't stopped in here for a while. Below is an update....
  • We went on our trip with the girl guides.  It was a great time the girls were awesome.  I was happy to see another part of Canada. 
  • Work is still not for me...My job that is...I like to work I just wish it was something i really enjoyed doing
  • They seem to have missplaced a projector here at work.  I am not sure how you can to that but it has been done.
  • Alexis got a Job at Winners. She starts today.
  • Izabella is walking and talking more and more as the days go on.
  • I have started going to Weight Watchers again....I am still not really ready for that but it is time to kick myself in the butt.
  • I have joined a 30 Journal challenge.  It looks like fun.  I have always wanted to keep a journal and never have because I thought that they were just for writing and I am not a very good writer.  In this challenge it looks like you can put anything in your journal ie doodles, paining, collage....It will be a fun journy to take.
Anyway this is it for now Internet.  Have a wonderful day and DOn't forget to be Awesome.

Good afternoon internet,

So today we will be having our final meeting with parents and girls.  We leave in 6 I can not beleive it has come this quick.  I remember when we were just starting to plan 3 years ago.  Crazy...

We are going to Montreal, Qubec and Ottawa.  I think it will be fun I know that the girls will have fun travel is new to most of them. 

On the home front all is going as it has been for the last couple of months.  Nothing to exciting to talk about.  We still don't have a builder.  Things seem to be at a stand still.  I can not wait until plans start.  I am looking forward to a new kitchen were I can accually cook.  Man would that be a concept.

Anyway now that I have jumped all over the place and made no sense...

Have a great day....and...

Don't Forget To Be Awesome.  :)

Hmmmm what can I say about is a day like all other days...
I was reading a photography blog I happened upon and came accross this...

List 10 things that make you feel the most alive...the most whole

Got me thinking...As it is a really hard list to make..I am 35 almost 36 and I still don't know the answer to this for the most part....I do have a few things but not 10...

So my question to you internet is what makes you feel most alive???

New Day

Hello Internet....

How are you doing?  I have come to a revelation.  I am not happy with myself or the job that I am in.  This has been coming on for a while.  So I have decided to take the steps to fix it. 
  • I will be working out 3 times a week
  • I will try to stay away from the junk food ie eat more subway instead of Wendy's
  • I will take a few courses in photography.  I really enjoy it and might like to do it for a living.
  • I will figure out my PA to include Adult learning in my learning plan.
That is enough things to change for now.  As I think that these will take me a while to make them happen. 

Have a great day to you later.

Pictures....and other stuff.

Hello Internet...

Today was a really weird day.  I had things given to me at work that make no sense. I had to deal with my daughter and her messed up boyfriend for supper.  The guy that is staying with us got the job he was hoping for. 

So I am going to ask anyone out there....What keeps you sane when everything seems to be stacked against you.......????

Below are my picks for the month of March.

Have a great day internet....

Love, a sholder to cry on. a long walk on a crisp evening, popcorn with white chedder sprinkles on top....Sooo many more things to add to that....My granddaugher moving back in with daughter realizing that the person she chooses to be with is not right for her......Many other things....


Time to myself...A good book to read...the time to finish whatever craft I feel like starting...

So many things that make me happy....

365 Project

Hello Internet....

I really loved the idea of taking a photo everyday for 365 days but man has it ever been hard. I just don't have the time to do it at this point in life. I think I am going to change my project to the 52 week project. I still want to participate but only able to commit to the once a week thing. In doing it this way I can post, say, my favorite 5 of the week and not feel like they all have to be from a different day.

So starting today I am going to start working on my Project 52. I really hope I can keep up with it...Come back in the future and check up on me I will hopefully have some pics that will entertain, make you think or just connect with you in some way or another.

Have a great weekend everyone.

365 project

Here are my most recent additions to the 365 Project. I will be adding more later today to hopefully get myself at least kind of caught up. please enjoy.

15/365 14/365

Friday, January 15, 2010


Hello All...

I will start by saying that I am behind already with the 365 project I have pics for Monday and for Wed but did not get any for Tuesday or Thursday. I am not going to worry about it just try harder to bring my camara everywhere I go that way I will hopefully not forget that I need to take the pics. I will post the ones I have sometime tonight.

I started Snowboarding on Wed. Oh man is it hard and it scares the Hell out of me. So needless to say when the instrutor brought us up the hill I looked down and said you want me to do what????? I was shaking in my boots thinking what if I loose control and run into all the little kids...I could really hurt someone. I have to say that my instructor was a very pacient soul. He just encouraged me along and said you can do it. SO...down the hill I went very slowly with him in front of me for the sucurity. I made it down with out falling...Yahoo I thought...Then I look up the hill and think why was I soo scard. It was hard being the first time and all but why am I so scard. I think that as we get older we think of all the things that could go wrong and forget to have fun. I am not saying that I am still not shaking in my booties on that top of that hill but I don't what that to stop me from doing it. I have made a packed with myself that I will make it to the bottem of that hill without needing the instructor in front of me by the end of the 5wk lesson and maybe someday I will be able to concure the bunny runs in the mountians.

Note to self

Remember you are strong. You are capable and you are resilient. Take all the challenges you are handed and face them head on. You can overcome them. Remember that you need some time for you to create. In order to recharge your soul.

Remember to spend time with your husband to renew the love each and every day...

Take a break from it all now and then.

If it all gets to overwhelming take a step back and reassess what you can do to face it.

And most of all remember that in order to be you need to be all the you you can be..
I know it kinda sounds like I am Dr Seuss who by the way is one of my favorite children's writers.

Later Internet have a great day.

PS I have decided to do the 365 Challenge so I will be posting a picture a day or a couple every few days... I haven't worked out the logistics quite yet.
