April 25, 2013

Tina and I had a lunch planned today and we both needed to go to Costco, so that was our first stop.  We found these gluten free, 100% liver treats in the pet aisle.  To say that Bruno "liked" them would be a vast understatement.  I had a hard time keeping him from eating these as soon as they were on his paw.

I opened the patio door today and these two were glued to the screen for hours!

Hoping that spring has finally sprung!

April 21, 2013

My friend Michelle Sturgeon adopted an abandoned cat at the beginning of the year and she surprised them with 7 kittens at the beginning of March.  Rachel and I went to see the kittens today but they were so fast that it was hard to get a decent photo of them.  So I settled on one of Evie.  If you check back through my blog, on November 27, 2009, you will see a photo of Evie when she was just a kitten.

I had to take some photos of a "family outing" for a photography course I'm taking, so Andy and I took Bruno to Russell for a river walk.  It wasn't much of a walk as the path was muddy, icy, flooded and dog pooped all over. really see in the spring melt, when people don't clean up after their dogs.  Anyway, I liked this one:

This might be a fun "before and after" photo.  This is our house before the big snowstorm coming...

April 9, 2013

Well, I'm a little behind! I wanted a spring photo before we get blasted with another snowfall on Friday.  So here you go! Happy Spring!

Trays of homemade Granola warm from the oven.

Both cats enjoying their favourite hobby - bird watching!

February 28, 2013

The morning after.

February 27, 2013

This has been a horrible winter for snow fall.  Andy was going to wait until morning to clear this, but with another 10 cms in the forecast overnight, it's a good thing he's doing it now!

February 26, 2013

Squirt doing some bird watching.

I've missed a few days!

I laughed at this ad in our local paper......wonder if the dealer got a free ad?

Uhmmm.....not so "always fresh" Tim Horton's!

My best friends these last two days. I was cleaning out the cat litter, bent over and I heard my back go crack.....

January 24, 2013

Someone got a promotion!

January 23, 2013

It's been a deep freeze kind of week.

January 22, 2013

Been cleaning out my scrapbook paper bins.

January 21, 2013

After more than a year of wearing just my wedding band, I had my engagement ring and my Mom's eternity band repaired.  My engagement ring was needing new points and I almost lost the stone.  My Mom's ring was another story - I had lost a stone in it and it needed new points on a few stones as well.My fingers are happy! Excuse my dried out winter hands.....

January 20, 2013

It's been a weird day - rain and clear skies and then hail and a blizzard with inches of snow.  And the temperature fell about 20 degrees.  Gotta love winter here in Ottawa.

January 19, 2013

I'm in Heaven! I have been using a little HP mini notebook to run my Silhouette die cutter.  It's been a pain.  I can't see the full screen and I'm forever waiting for the software to load.  Andy, quite generously, gave me his old Dell to use.  It's a full size, lighted keyboard.....I LOVE IT!

I've finally sorted out my scrapbooking tote and I have a pile of layouts to photograph and file in albums.

We've had so much snow that even Bruno has difficulty getting around in it.

January 13, 2013

Out of the 100's of Hot Wheels that Lucas had when he was younger, this one has remained on my desk.  Not sure why I kept it until now, but I have a great idea for a scrapbook layout about it.

I think Zipper is feeling better. He's eating again. We were all a little worried even though we kept telling ourselves that he was okay - he was purring, and grooming and drinking and using the litter box.....

Only a scrapbooker would understand how addicting Thickers can be.  So when a friend called to say she had found a really good bargain on them and did I want any, my immediate answer was "YES!".

January 9, 2013

Sometimes the snow is a matte finish to it, but some days, it has a sparkle.  Tried to capture that here.

January 8, 2013

It was inevitable - the huge snow pile was hauled away yesterday.

January 7, 2013

The snow pile out front is so big that if someone parks on the circle, you can't get around their car.

January 6, 2013

Zipper has not been feeling well the last few days.  If you know Zipper, then you know that he came by his 20 lbs honestly as he eats everything in front of him and looks for more.  We've had him on a diet for 2 years now of a scant 1/4 cup of kibble twice a day, and he's only lost 1/2 a pound.  The last few days he hasn't been eating, but he is still his loveable, purry self.

Time to take down the tree and put away the decorations.

Happy 19th Birthday Lucas!

"The snow is really piling up outside...".  Reminds me of the old Meatloaf song.

January 1, 2013

We've had so much snow this past week!  Rachel got stuck 4 times trying to get home from work, which is only 4 blocks away.  Andy had to dig her out and a neighbour helped to get her car into our driveway.
