365 Photo of the Day

Mom made an apple pie today and I learned something from her.  

When your pie is a little runny (fruit) or flubby (custard, cream or pudding) 

don't drain it off, just tip it up a bit, (obviously in the direction where the 

juices will run back into itself) put a prop under it and leave it until its cool. It will absorb the extra.

Ha!  This is her own tip she "figgered out" by herself, before the days of Pinterest.

365 Photo of the Day

 
Sometimes I'm distracted and I don't quite look where I'm going.  I'm sure we've all stepped in something unpleasant at some point or another.  I didn't actually step in this wad of gum but I've certainly had instances in the past.  In fact, my poor Mr had an unfortunate encounter with pet droppings just yesterday, on his brand-spanking-new runners!  How mortifying.  The more so when it happens on the fly - for example when you're all dressed up and heading somewhere and there's a time-line involved.  
 
It does no good to get angry.  No, the person who tossed the gum should have used a trash bin and yes, the pet-owner should have used a doggie doo bag, but what's done is done and there will always be gum-droppers and doggie dropping NOT picking uppers too and we must instead be on our gaurd and look where we are placing our feet.  
 
Oh, and that gum one finds underneath seats and tables too.  Best keep one's hands where you can see them.  
 
 
This, on the other hand, was a fortunate accident being it was the spilling of a pitcher of ice cubes only.  Embarassing, perhaps, but kind of a cool, clean and funny "ice breaker" for conversation when out to dinner with friends this evening.  
 
I'd love you to share your sticky situations with me too!

365 Photo of the Day

Hiking this trail made me desire to go camping - wish we could, but it won't be for a bit. 

Just another beautiful BC lake!  
 

About time!!  We forget to take pics together. 

Finally got a pic of our lil Fiat inside the hubcap of a freight truck wheel.

Date Day - although there was a lot of smoke in the air we enjoyed some time on the beautiful beach at Penticton.

365 Photo of the Day and New Kit by KimB!

July 5 - cat tail

The cat-tails are in bloom now and they invite a little petting on the way by on my early morning walks.  I remember “having duels” with my siblings when I was young. 

I’m a little late at announcing KimB’s latest kit creation – its simply WILD!  Now that my cherry picking adventure is over perhaps I’ll even get to play with it.  Here are a few pieces of it for you to drool over – and to see some of the great layouts her DT has made pop over to Kim’s blog site!

I hope if you stumbled over here you’ll also notice Kim has a smashing deal products at unheard of prices! Here are a few pics and links:

365 Photo of the Day

 
Holey Kamoley - my eyes near fell out of my head when I saw the total lbs of cherries I picked over the past couple of weeks. No wonder my little wings are sore. Being its my first year I'm happy with this outcome. Imagine though that I am SLOW compared to many pickers.  They make it look easy and effortless, they are quiet and swift, like stealth robots. I keep checking to see if they have like secret octopus arms that come out when I'm not looking. I've picked their brains as to what make one fast, the top answer is (like everything else in life) EXPERIENCE.  
I'm going to relish not getting up at 3:15 tomorrow morning.
