'New Chair'

I had this old wooden chair from a garage sale years ago (I think I paid $2) for it.  I first painted it dark brown and it has been like that for several years.  Today I added the blue and distressed it a bit - LOVE it now.  I have it now sitting by my front door rather than in storage and only to pull out when we need extra chairs.

Just Danica

I am not very good with Photoshop so I am working hard at taking better photos so that I don't have to use my Photoshop.  Luckily, Danica is a willing participant most of the time.  I am happy with how this turned out.  These are straight out of the camera no edits.

My favorite photos at events are just the candid ones when moments are like this one are captured.

Where did that come from?

Danica got her room all organized the new lockers in her closet all organized and I wanted to see.  I went up to look and out from under her bed runs a kitten....what???  Where did that come from? Danica a little hesitant told me it was hers (now remember a few months back when she bought herself a turtle without asking...).  Apparently her boyfriend gave it to her for their 1 year anniversary... he knew she loved animals and kittens - sweet yes - but do we really need another animal?  When we first got Chloe (our current white cat) we had a calico named Cleo.  Cleo got very jealous and we think ran away so I have not wanted Danica to get another kitten, not sure how Chloe would take it.  So here we are, this new little addition, who by the way has been living in our trailer for the past three days - no litter box (Danica has been taking it outside to go the bathroom), no kitty food (she has been given the regular cat food) with Danica visiting as much as she could because she was afraid to tell me - thought I would be mad.  So last night at 10:30 I sent Jaimee up to Wal-Mart to get some litter and food...heck I love animals but not sure how Chloe would take it.  Time will tell, hopefully all goes well.  Of course now I'm thinking... do I really want to camp with a dog and TWO cats?!  Look at this though - so cute!

Cookie Monster

Danica was busy in the kitchen this afternoon.  

Love the personality that each one has.

Sprinkler time...

A sure sign of summer around our house is the sprinkler going.  I have a lot of flower beds to keep watered so I put the sprinkler to work.

The photo prompt is fruit.  We have lived in our house for 10 years and our tree has never produced cherries before.  This year we have a good crop growing, yay.  My favorite fruit.

Zip Lining today

Today we took Danica and a friend to Nanaimo so they could do some zip lining.  They had fun!

Craft Room

In between errands and painting railings, I have spent the last couple of days purging/organizing my craft room (again, hehehe).  Feels good to be done.  Today's photo is a series of photos to show where I spend my time - the photo prompt is: Happiness is:

Beautiful Sunset

The great thing about being an early riser is you get to see sunrises and sunsets.  We had a beautiful sunset tonight.
