Went for a walk with Boucle at lunch hour yesterday.  Beautiful sunshine and blue skies. No wind. Just gorgeous.

Waiting for the big storm……..

….crows….cawing…….flap…flap..flap……  all in unison…..

….yesterday  at lunch from my backyard……

…lady in necklace………

_JAS8246-2WEB-Jane-in-Hat-and-NecklaceI like the colors in this one.  This is almost in camera colors, just a bit of lightening.  I feel it has a Renoir kind of feel.  There is a Renoir painting called Girl in a Pink Hat at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.   It is beautiful and one of my favorite paintings, and it has  the soft pinks found in this background.

 

…lazy…lazy………lazy day………

Yesterday was a holiday here.  I did chores all weekend and shovelled 15 cm of snow.

And yesterday, I had ambitious plans……..

…….my umfph was gone…….. just wanted to put up my heels and do nothing…..all the plans staying in my head……

Though…..I did go for a long walk with sweetie-pie……..a few minor things and and that was it for me yesterday……..

…lazy…..lazy………

Got up yesterday morning and looked over to the tulips and every single one was drooped completely onto the table.  My eyes went wide………! …quickly looked them over and brought them to the sink to fill up the vase.  They had drunk the entire vase of water overnight.

The water was just what they wanted, and with a bit of cooing….oh you are so beautiful…you will be fine…… …and look at them now:))))))

 

…geese in a row…….and one lonely duck……….

Each goose perfectly followed the goose in front, steadily and persistently paddling across the lake………

And just above the far left goose…..a duck…..by himself……..where is his tribe?…his flock?…..lonely duck…….

… winter morning at the lake…..

….yesterday’s dream…………..

We have a wonderful winter gem right in our city.

A ski hill!  Not very big, but it is 15 mins away from my house.  It has a few ski runs, a t-bar, a conveyor belt, and one side of the hill is for little ones to toboggan down.

Yesterday, after our big snowfall, I just knew that this would be open and others would find their way there too.  So around noon, Boucle and I headed out to Centennial Park.  We had a wonderful time.  Perfect winter day!

Today, it is all melting as it is raining and warm.  So I titled it ‘yesterday’s dream’.
