I baked a mix for apple cinnamon muffins this morning, and wrapped them individually for the freezer.

Happy place

Just picked up our new Yogibo bean bag chairs yesterday. So the Yogibo + Kindle = Happy Place.

Three things

I walked past the Community Garden and picked out three compost bins. Perhaps I should have stuck with my original idea of 3 pieces of [colorful] garbage I saw on a different street.

January in Canada is definitely not a time filled with color. Even worse when the snow thaws and you're left with mud-colored landscape. But I did manage to see a bright red fire hydrant along the street to bring some color.

Looking down

I tried a downward perspective before, of a streetscape, without much success. This works better.

By contrast, here is a man-made break in a tree, also part of the aftermath of the ice storm.

We had a large ice storm just before Christmas, followed by plenty of days of cold which didn't allow the ice to melt. As a result, the tree limbs bent and broke. This is a natural break as a result of that storm from a neighbor's house up the street.

Makes me smile

The older I get, the less I like winter. So seeing the green grass as the snow recedes during our January thaw makes me happy.

Lucky number

I'm not sure I have a lucky number myself, but plenty of people consider 7 to be a lucky number.

Happens Everyday -- the mail gets delivered. At least, until Canada Post stops door-to-door delivery.

January 2014 photo - Day 5

Missed My Town and Words to live by. May come back to My Town but I don't really have any words to live by.

With the January thaw, I was able to get out for a lunchtime walk and snap a bunch of pics to make up for the days lost.  Day 5 was Found, where I found a shoelace that had been exposed after the thaw.

January 2014 photo - Day 1

Back on the wagon. Day 1 was Lunch. I wasn't eating lunch at lunchtime, but was waiting for the start of a free New Year's Day Zumba class.
