The quilt is done! The quilt is done!! Washed and ready to go!
So, we've discussed before the plethora of photographers documenting the owls, and that number just keeps on growing by the day as word gets around via facebook. No longer do I have the place to myself, that is for sure. I told Bruce I am getting an education in photography, watching all these folks with their 600mm lens and tripods, and in some cases stools to sit on while waiting for some action. I also told him that one couple has about $10,000 worth of equipment between them, however, I learned the other day that I was WAY off. More like $50,000! They travel to far off places to take photographs as well, as in Antartica for the penguins. And you know what? All that patience, and it takes a great deal of it to photograph wildlife, and expensive equipment, makes for some astonishing photography. Click on the link, and be prepared to be amazed.
All that to say that my photographs pale in comparison. Actually, don't click on that link because you'll never be interested in my efforts again! Nonetheless, it isn't a competition for me, so let's get started with what I've seen this week, beginning with the Papa owl saying either hi, or, more likely, get out of here you crazy people!!
Here's a link to Jack Rogers' photography which will blow your mind. My former Historical Geology professor, you know.
One morning I made a stop at nearby Lake Davis to see what I could see, and here is a time when I really wish I had a longer zoom lens because it would have been so nice to see this Yellow Legs closer, wouldn't it?
these Yelp reviews helped me make the decision. Turns out he was just as good as was stated. Here's what he found once he was able to take the back panel off.
My garden, in spite of the scanty rainfall, is coming along nicely with darling Violas in the front,
About four of the girls from the head office are here for a convention, including Zarita, who is so excited for Bruce to help her refine her skills.
Yesterday was absolutely crazy hot, as in 94 degrees! Not enough rain fell overnight, but we will have to be content with what we get. Rain, turned into a front that pushed out all that hot air and now it is going to be picture perfect for the next four days that they will be in Orlando. Sorely needed sunshine after a brutal winter of rain in Vancouver.
You can safely bet that I am nervous about that.
p.s. Facebook put up a memory for me this morning...our trip to Vancouver two years ago today. 😀
p.p.s. I forgot one of the most important things I learned from the girls....Bruce can take Baxter to work with him!!! In fact, they hope he will. Not every day mind you, but sometimes. That is such a relief because I was envisioning not having as much freedom to explore as I wanted. God is good!
It is hard to know what to do in the situation we found ourselves. Should we go, or should we stay? My vote was to stay, whereas Bruce wante...
It was cold on the day of the parade, not as cold as today, but enough so that we walked to Bruce's office bundled up where we planned t...
I would be the first to admit that during these months in Vancouver I feel as if I am living in a bit of a bubble. Rarely do I even know the...
