52 Weeks 2014

50-52-2014: All that glitters…

December 16th, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

December 14, 2014 – It’s been a busy December…who am I kidding, it’s been a busy year. I don’t ever remember Decembers being so busy, and I’m so far behind in a number of things. No gifts purchased, only some cards mailed away, more to do yet, but at least we did get some decorations [...]

49-52-2014: Mount Hood

December 7th, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

December 7, 2014 – I spent most of this past week down in Oregon at a conference. It was a hellish week of travel, but it had its bright spots…like this….flying between Mount St Helens and Mount Hood on a tiny little Cessna. It’s a common joke among our friends that we shouldn’t travel in [...]

48-52-2014: First Snow

December 1st, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

November 29, 2014 – It snowed Friday night, the first snow of the year. Hopefully not the last 😉 Nothing much to say about it, except that I love snowy, sunny, days. I love the crisp air and the blue sky. I grew up with that combination, but it’s not as common here where I [...]

47-52-2014: Two, if by sea

November 23rd, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

November 22, 2014 – Both Saturday and Sunday started off relatively crappy, but as the mornings wore on both days, the clouds blew on, the rains dried up, and the sun came out. When the wet season settles in, and that’s usually October to May, when the sun comes out you take advantage of it, [...]

46-52-2014: Fallen

November 16th, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

November 16, 2014 - The weather has been cool, cold to some who live here, but since we are from colder climes originally, I'll just call it cool. The cool air has brought sunny skies and changing colours. We've had it so warm for so long that the leaves are only just changing and falling [...]

45-52-2014: Where’s Dinner?

November 9th, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

November 9, 2014 - Loki likes the new kitchen. He can sit there and beg for dinner and not get in trouble for it, because he's on a stool rather than on the counter. Cats, they are such a pain at the same time I can't imagine living without them. Today I was painting the [...]

44-52-2014: Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

October 31, 2014 - Hard to believe we've been in our new place for one year now. On Halloween 2013 we got the keys to our dream home in a part of town we'd always loved and assumed we'd never be able to afford to live. Odd happenings, chances that worked out, a lot of [...]

43-52-2014: Into the Distance

October 26th, 2014|52 Weeks 2014|

October 26, 2014 - It was a long and not-as-planned week this past week. But that's fine, it keeps life interesting. I was on Vancouver Island from Monday morning until Thursday evening for a number of purposes. I'd been asked by Communications to provide what photographs I could for as many SEP facilities as possible [...]
