Second half of February..

Day 46: The Valentine’s Day gifts..just a small token..

You don't marry someone you can live with - you marry the person who you cannot live without."
Since our first Valentine's Day together in 1980 and now 33 years later..you are still my one and only..the love of my life and my very 'best friend'..

Day 47: Maintenance Day..some days it is all about the ‘hair’..

Day 48: Some days those 'brick walls' keep popping up..

Day 49: 'got milk?'.. we made a trip to the USA yesterday and our purchases included the usual milk and cheese..two for the price of one!

IMG_0691

Day 50: a 'pinwheel of choices'..light or dark or somewhere in between?..too many to choose from, maybe we should just 'spin the wheel' and hope for the best?

IMG_0693

Day 51: 'I'm watching you'....'bear-ly' hanging on till Friday!

IMG_0699

Day 52: 'the time-sucker'..I was introduced to Pinterest last year and never really explored all it had to offer..that was until I received my IPad for Christmas.
There are many 'time-suckers' on the internet like Facebook,blog reading, game playing just to name a few..now I can add Pinterest to my ever growing list..

Day 53: yet another knitting project on the go..too bad it's only 5:45 A.M. and 'work' is where I need to go today..the rain is coming down and it sure would be nice to be able to sit on the couch and knit the day away!..at least it's Friday..only 10 hours and 10 minutes till the weekend begins!

IMG_0705

Day 54: we have all heard of 'dogs with jobs'..but we have a cat who thinks he has many jobs. 1. guarding the yarn
2. the alarm clock
and now the latest job is 3. keeping the 'fresh from the dryer laundry' from being folded.
He is a great companion on his terms and his terms only!

Day 55: Waiting on Spring..can hardly wait for those warm spring mornings when we can sit on the sundeck and enjoy our morning coffee..soon..very soon...

IMG_0713

Day 56: Say it isn't so..it can't possibly be Monday morning already..it was just Friday two day ago?

IMG_0715

Day 57: 20 days later and this is what we have done to the kitchen..isn't it lovely? I think we should just leave it as is..a 'thin skiff of cement' for flooring?..this new decor should 'catch on' eventually?

IMG_0718

Day 58: 'Egg-actly'...which came first..the chicken or the egg?

IMG_0720

Day 59: Maybe, just maybe, this time next month we will be 'happy campers'?..as the month of February ends with this photo..spring will be here before we know it!!

IMG_0721

..as Project 365 continues, tomorrow I will turn the calendar and a new month begins..one filled with new beginnings and new photos to capture the day to day life.

the first 14 days of February..

the daily photo a day process continues..

Day 32: In 1976 the uniform for the nurses was a white dress, white shoes, white nylons and of course the token white nurse’s hat..fast forward to today and of course that 'style' is no more..this is my Friday ensemble..'Happy 'Fly Day' everyone..butterflies that is!!

IMG_0498

Day 33: a morning spent 'kicking some tires and dreaming’..did we find that perfect motorhome?..not this time round..no contenders at this RV show.

IMG_0500

Day 34: Some 'people' take their work very seriously..meet my new 'guarder of the yarn'!

IMG_0505

Day 35: 'game..set..Monday morning match?..let the week begin..'

IMG_0507

Day 36: 'Tickle your fancy?'

IMG_0517

Day 37: Shapes?..curves and straight lines

IMG_0521

Day 38: We all know that oil and water don't mix but what happens when a leaking dishwasher hits laminate flooring..just a very small piece of a much bigger 'mess'..hard to capture the 'damage'..but all we know is that half of our kitchen floor looks like this....what to doIMG_0535

Day 39: Hot and sudsy..resorting to doing dishes the old fashioned way?

IMG_0552

Day 41: 'ob·liv·i·ous..Not aware of or not concerned about what is happening around one.'
Carlie and I went to Stanley Park today and as we were walking we noticed this wedding party taking photos along beach..the funny thing was the woman in the red outfit lying on the beach reading her book?..was she just oblivious to the events happening around her or was the wedding party the ones that were oblivious?..it's kind of like who was there first??

Day 42: It's what's for dinner..

IMG_0670

Day 43: ‘slip slidin’ away’..the park is a lonely place on a rainy afternoon.

P2129156

Day 44: Awww nuts..why isn't it Friday??

IMG_0673

Day 45: Happy Valentine’s Day!..is it really just ‘another day’?..or is it Valentine’s Day every day at your house?

Day ‘Tripping’

 

Our ‘long weekend’ is but a distant memory..the fans and dehumidifier left this morning..

IMG_0562

..all is quiet finally and the dishwasher is repaired..$182 later but at least I don’t have to do dishes the ‘camping’ way anymore..

Now we wait until the insurance adjuster does the paper work and then we can choose our new flooring material..

To escape the noise of the ‘fans’ this weekend there were a few walks..

IMG_0569

..our local lake  is pretty this time of year, even in the rain..

IMG_0564

..Carlie and I ventured into Vancouver..

While we were downtown, Doug had his own adventure..a ‘boy’s day out’..two men making a ‘break for it’..IMG_0573

…it was an early start as the sun came up over the mountains..

..the Harrison Mills area..

..the truck was changing colour with each mile travelled..

IMG_0637

..and then..there it was?..our dream rv parked in a perfect spot..not a soul around..

IMG_0642

IMG_0644

IMG_0663IMG_0653IMG_0657

..so there you have our ‘day tripping weekend’..thanks for riding along..

The ‘Cavalry’ Has Arrived?
