April Photoaday Challenge Day 30!

Last day of Challenge.
Something that makes me sad.
These are not cute toys, these are tools for witchcraft. In gumball machines of all places.  Anyone who practices this and they will tell you, that this is very real, and they are trying to make it cute and funny?  This makes me sad.

April Photoaday Challenge Day 29!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 26!!

Black and White
Ya, ok, I know.  
This gets a zero in the creativity department.
But it fulfills the requirement!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 24!! A Picture and a Story!!

So, today's challenge was to post a picture of something I'm grateful for. I actually had to combine 3 pics into 1 to make it 1 picture because its a combination of a few things that I am grateful for.  

The upper left corner of my picture is my computer.  My wonderful neighbour Norah, was upgrading to another computer and this puppy still had life in it.  I was without a computer of my own at the time, and Norah thought of me when she was doing her switch!  I am grateful to Norah for thinking of me.  This was 2 years ago and this computer is still running wonderfully!  

The upper right hand corner of my picture is the modem and D-link that connects me to the outside world. It  is a very important part of the bottom left corner of my picture, which is a shot of my Facebook Profile.  I live so far away from friends and family that aren't here where I live, that I would otherwise have not been able to find, or have been able to have contact with.  Although I have complained about all the changes that Facebook has made since I joined December 12, 2006, I'm not going to do that anymore.  It's a free service after all, so why should I complain.  Without it, I wouldn't have been able to connect with so many people from all around that I have known and still know. 

So, to sum up what my picture is about, I would say, that I'm grateful for the technology that allows me to be connected to the people I love and the new friends I've made and want to get to know better!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 20!!

Something I Drew!

I drew this picture of my Friend and Tattoo Artist Matt on a napkin while waiting for him to meet up with me one day.  I had it in a photo keeper that was hanging on my rear-view mirror for a really long time and when I was looking for a picture that I drew to photograph today, I remembered I had this still!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 18!


This is pic came from an app called hairmixer.  It is my absolute favourite.  It just goes to show that hair can make a person have a completely different look.  I look like Brad Pitt here, right?  Well, its his hairstyle and my face!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 16!

This is my absolute favourite picture of flowers. I took it in my parents garden a couple of springs ago and I am always happy for the opportunity to share it!  I called the picture backyard glory.

April Photoaday Challenge Day 14!

How I feel today, is today's picture.  I would say I feel just like my little princess friend does here, since I was part of a princess tea party with her two sisters.  This one went to a birthday party and the other two felt left out, so we had our own princess tea party at their house while their brother slept!  So today, I feel like a Princess!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 13!

Whoever say's that Friday the 13th is unlucky, they are wrong!  I just found a really cool item at Dollarama for only $2.00, and its $10.00 and up everywhere else.
Gonna grow my own tomatoes!  Booyah!

The Celebration Continues!

So after having a really nice birthday dinner with Justin and my parents, it was time to go get ready for my weekly visit with my 4 favourite little people in town.

When I walked into their house, I was greeted by 3 very excited little girls who were super excited to see me!  They spent some time making me some very beautiful cards with their parents!  I nearly cried when I read them.  They were so sweet!

They even had a birthday cake with a candle in it and sang me "Happy Birthday!"  When we started to cut the cake, the wee guy was super excited for it!  It was the "icing on the cake" to an already super wonderful birthday!  I loved every minute of it!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

So, today I turned 29 for the 9th time!  I guess its time to change the blog name to twenty-eighteen but I really don't want too.  I like the look of the words twenty-seventeen.  Anyone have any opinions?  Id love to hear them!

We had a lovely bbq dinner of my choice today and I chose a huge fudge brownie in lieu of a cake.  None of the ones in the store looked or sounded remotely appealing, so I asked for the brownie instead!  A very wise decision, I might add.  One can never go wrong with the two words, Fudge Brownie.  It was paired quite divinely with Cherry Frozen Yogurt with chocolate chunks in it!  YUMMY!
If you look at the next picture, you will see just how lovely they complemented each other in my bowl!

My son surprised me with a super funny card this year ( I didn't have to remind him, OR give him money for it either!)

It was a beautiful sunny day. I received many well wishes via Facebook, text messages and telephone which I loved!  My parents gave me a Betty Boop travel mug for all my travels, and those who know me, know I'm a huge fan!
Since today is Thursday, I have my normal scheduled date with 4 of my most favourite little people in town.  Im having a very nice day!  Thank You to everyone who thought of me today!  I love you all!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 12!

These stairs are in my parents house and are a pretty feature, in my opinion!

Wordless Wednesday!!

When I went to Cayo Coco, Cuba last year with my sister-in-law, we stayed at the Iberostar Daiquiri. One of the evenings while sitting in the lobby bar with our new friends, this group of came out moving in complete slow motion.  It was really cool.  They were dressed to look like pottery.  I've never seen anything like that before!  They were perfectly still like real statues!  I was fascinating to watch!

April Photoaday Challenge Day 6!

Lunch!  I got creative in the kitchen today!  I took a boneless skinless chicken breast put it in the frying pan with a bit of olive oil, added some garlic cloves and some red peppers. I put in on a soft tortilla that was topped with onion BBQ sauce.  I added some bacon pieces and old cheddar cheese on top and threw it in the oven til the cheese was melted!  It tastes amazing!!

He knew exactly what to do with it!  Now to get all the food colouring stains out!!  Oh well, that's a job for his parents!  I got to go home!
