Day 365 – A Two-fer and a Look Back Over the Year.

December 31st, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

(#1) Why bread? My first photo of the year was yeast ( A magical organism that brings us wondrous things such as beer, wine, and bread. Thus, it seemed logical that the last photo of the year should be something that was a product of that amazing creature that is so often overlooked. A wonderful [...]

52-52-2011: Camera Geek!

December 31st, 2011|52 Weeks 2011, Photo a Day - 2011|

Like I have anything to say. Like any of us on Flickr have anything to say. I've spent the year staring through the lens, the last two actually, and so this somehow seemed like an appropriate shot for the last of my 52 week project. A photo of someone else looking through their lens, particualrly [...]

Day 364 – Companionship

December 30th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

An idea blatantly stolen from a Flickr contact (but I did tell her I was going to be a thief). Her Daily Challenge a few days ago was "What Money Can't Buy" and her answer to it was "Someone To Share Your Morning Coffee With". That resonated with me and so I plagiarized (with proper [...]

Day 363 – Hugs & Kisses

December 29th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

Like I said yesterday, the stockings are terrible things because they come filled with all the treats we know are terrible for us and we generally stay away from all year long. I absolutely love Hershey's Hugs and Kisses chocolates. Small bites to savour, but I can't ever have just one. But there is a [...]

Day 362 – Swim …… Be Free!

December 28th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

Once a year we buy each other things we wouldn't normally buy and stuff each other's Christmas stockings with them. For me, one treat is goldfish crackers. Don't ask me why, but I love them! And that's precisely why I NEVER buy them! Because I'll eat an entire bag if given the opportunity. I showed [...]

Day 361 – Endangered Species?

December 28th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

You probably have a cell phone so you never think about it, but how often do you see pay-phones anymore? And because you have a cell phone, you probably think they might as well disappear. But what about people who don't have a cell phone? What happens to them when they want to contact someone? [...]

Day 360 – Kirk’s Boxing Day Meal Plan

December 26th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

Mmmm, looks like a yummy combination, doesn't it. Take 1L of water, mix in two tablespoons of sugar, one half teaspoon of salt, one half teaspoon of baking soda, and add Metamucil with psyllium fibre. Drink one litre every hour. Take acidophilus tablets, drink tea with honey, bananas, plain crackers, toast with no butter, plain [...]

Day 359 – Christmas Turkey

December 25th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

I wait for Christmas all month. Not for presents, I could happily forgo those to see the money go to those who need it more than I need some new trinket. No, I wait for Christmas because I am looking forward to Christmas dinner. That one dinner that includes all those rich treats that you [...]

Day 358 – Over the Top

December 24th, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

We went for a drive around parts of the Lower Mainland to see some of the over-the-top displays of lights. The Griswald's would be put to shame by some of the homes we saw! Take this one, in North Vancouver, for instance. I can't help but wonder how long that took to put up, and [...]

Day 357 – Wall-E’s World?

December 23rd, 2011|Photo a Day - 2011|

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas! Here's hoping that it is filled with health, happiness, and fun filled adventures for everyone. I can't say for sure if Wall-E is done for the year or not, but just in case, he'd like to send everyone a great big hug!
