831 Forever

I remember spending every day at the beach.
Every day.
The wind would blow knots in my then irish red hair,
I’d be snapping photos,
collecting sea glass,
kneeling and thanking the earth for all that it had given me.
I remember touching my face on the long walk home and smiling
because it was still warm from the sun’s kisses.
I remember those long, hot summer nights,
staying up until 4 a.m. just to hear another punk on the end of the line.
I remember dreaming of sailboats, and salty seas,
and factories with their steam bellowing up to reach the night sky,
walking rainy streets and tripping on tree roots.
I remember the shirt I made you, I wonder if you still wear it.
I can remember exactly who I used to be,
and I wonder
just who
I am now.

Hot crow

I’m hoping that’s not a less-than-kosher saying in other parts of the world, I simply combined two things that I took notice to today; the heat and a crow. Though I can’t show you a picture of the heat, I’ve attached Ms. Crow. ¬†It got up to 35’c here at one point today – for those who shiver when they think of Labrador, the joke’s on you lol.

Enjoy the pics. Be back later.


Tricks are for kids

Today was one of those days where I needed something carbonated and cold to survive. I spent a good portion of today in the backyard with Aaron, mowing and (weed) whacking, and also clearing away some brush. I got burnt even though I layered on the lotion. When all was said and done I had a strong need for a can of Coke, and boy did I ever enjoy that one.

We went to the dock after supper (had a lovely meal prepared in the Slow-cooker, god bless you Betty Crocker!). I got a few snaps of the sunset, and some kids doing tricks with their bikes off the wharf. I would have gotten some cool shots had I taken my Rebel, but I took my point and shoot emergency camera.. burst mode on that is crap. Anyways, here they are! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
