and April continues..

Day 106: How about this 'beauty'? a step back in time to the 60's..the words peace, love and 'flower power' come to mind?

Day 107: 'Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, I wonder where the birdies is?' there was a wood pecker in the tree just beside our sundeck but he was being very 'bashful'..so instead we have 'blooms' for day 107!


Day 108: 'LOST'..
the realization of what you would have to deal with to replace all the items inside..and then there is the the ‘relief’ when it is ‘FOUND’!…yes it is well worn but such a ‘welcome sight!’


Day 109: something to 'ALEVE-I-ATE' the aches and pains..


Day 110: The ‘trademark’ mittens..IMG_1170

Day 111: the ‘eagle has landed?’


Day 112: 'A creature of habit?'..for the last 7 years this was the 'holder of the blueberry juice' every day that Doug went to work..and then tonight it met it's demise..fresh from the dishwasher..nicely 'cracked'..no long will it be the 'holder of the juice'..a sad day, as it is the end of an era!


Day 113: every day we pass by this 'standpipe' in the stairwell when we take Tucker out to do his 'business'..never really thought about it but it's nice to know it is so close, just in case there is a fire!


Day 114: The 'rhodies' are bloomin'


Day 115: 'Vintage'..does that just mean 'old'?..this 8mm movie camera belonged to Doug's dad..in perfect condition and may not be worth much in dollars but sometimes it is not about the money!


Day 116: The rule at our house is that the last one out of bed has the 'duty to make the bed'..this morning the last one up has 'four paws'..what do YOU think the chances are he will abide by this 'rule?'


Day 117: a nice way to start the weekend..one steamed milk with two shots of vanilla and caramel drizzle!..thanks to my favourite 'barista'!!


Day 118: a Sunday morning walk on the dyke in Pitt Meadows..it was 'dandi-lion' heaven for the golden boy..his ball, water to swim in and no leash!!


Day 119: 'coloured glass'


Day 120: the trees are filling in and soon we won't be able to see 'the forest for the trees?'


.and so ends yet another month..Spring is here and soon Summer will not be too far behind..

this ‘daily photo’ project has taken on a ‘life of it’s own’ and can be difficult some days to find something to photograph..but the ‘perseverance’ to complete the task continues..120 down..only 245 more to go..


  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos. Another month down, and closer to SUMMER...and camping...and you know what that means! It will be fun, fun, fun and hopefully sun, sun, sun!!!

  2. Hi Sue, yes it must be hard to find something every day to photograph, but you did very well!
    So did Tucker make the bad?! Molly doesn't either. LOL
    I hope May brings beautiful weather to BC!

  3. Great collection of photos. Now...what will replace Doug's favourite glass?

  4. I thought you'd trained Tucker better than that... ;c)

  5. You are doing a fine job, Sue. It's fun for us, your readers, to see what you choose to take a picture of each day.

  6. What a cool looking VW bus. I remember those from way back when.

  7. Doug still does his Day by Day picture diary. We now go back 4 years.

  8. I guess Dennis got tired of my crabbing when making the bed, now he helps and it goes much faster...and in the Hiker , too!!

  9. Another great collection. Too hard to choose a favorite but the thought of your boy making the bed brought the biggest laugh :)
