Hoar Frost kinda day

Apr 20, 2014 by

My friend Candace called me on this frigid January day to let me know that there was hoar frost in the hills. It’s not often that this natural phenomenon occurs here in Kamloops, and it never stays long.  I packed up my camera, enticed my husband with coffee and dragged him along on an expedition to find this hoar frost.  TOTALLY worth freezing my...

However, I decided to make time to participate this month   Our challenge for September is to pick a color and blog it.  Blue is my...

A Superb Decision…

Aug 9, 2012 by

…if I do say so myself!  Our family went on a little holiday to an amusement park in Idaho called Silverwood.  It was AWESOME!  We had so much fun, and the waterpark was perfect for 42° days.  Wow, it was hot.  Silverwood wasn’t the Superb Decision I’m talking about though.  My Superb Decision was a waterproof, shockproof camera (a Lumix DMC-TS4) that I could...

The Night Sky…

Aug 5, 2012 by

There is something about gazing into the eternity of space that always gives me pause. Last night’s wedding was out in Magna Bay on the Shuswap, and it went late, and it was clear as a bell.  I miss seeing the stars.  The only thing that would have made the stars clearer would have been the absence of the almost full moon.  It was...

Missing Out … a bit of perspective
Read more

I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night… too many thoughts about 2012 so far rolling around in my head… and sometime, somewhere in the wee hours of the morning I had an epiphanie of sorts.  I realized that I’ve been so focused on the big things in my, whether it be big tragedies, big events in the kids’ lives, or big...

Sprinkler Action

Aug 1, 2012 by

We noticed the huge school sprinklers going off in the field behind our house today, and sent the boys out there to play.  Can’t believe we never thought of this before, but they had SO MUCH FUN out...

And this year, for my birthday, I’m getting a magnolia, because they are SO beautiful, and they bloom first thing in the spring, AND they come in bush form so I can plant it right outside my front door and enjoy it’s heavenly...

One Snowy morning

Jan 16, 2012 by

I have to say (and I never thought I WOULD say this) that I miss snowy winters.  A lot.  It was such a treat to be up in Sun Peaks shooting a wedding in real winter, with the snow falling.  It was glorious!  I even enjoyed digging my car out from at least 7 inches of snow Sunday morning!  Yeah, never thought I’d say...

NYC – a snapshot

Oct 27, 2011 by

A snapshot of our excursions in NYC.  We LOVED NYC, and I finally understand the slogan… we could’ve spent a month there exploring and discovering this amazing, wonderful city.  Alas, we had only two full days there, and we made the most of them.  My non-travel husband has fallen for NYC also, and know this won’t be our last time there, and the future...
