So nothing to really report today. Addy and I went to visit my cousin in Shawnigan lake. It's always a great visit. No pictures today. Addy was so good today. Mommy on the other hand was exhausted.

Dragon Bites

Today was a lot cooler then yesterday. The weather has been hot hot hot. Addy and I went to watch the dragon boat races that were happening in the inner harbor. It was really exciting to watch. The paddlers were working so hard, and the races were really close!!! But they were behind schedule, about half an hour.
I enjoyed watching also the color that was surrounding me. One thing that struck me was the lanterns, it was a fundraiser to raise money for the cancer association. You purchase a lantern and place a special message on it. There were so many lanterns, that I just started to cry. I miss my father.

Bike 1 Gen 0

This morning I decided I was going to try out my bike shoes! Before heading out on the road I tested my right foot of popping in and out of the pedels with the cleats of the shoes.. alll good
So off I went 6am biking to Tilicum mall, thinking I will have a coffee. I was in heaven!! Then I tried to unclip my LEFT shoe, and NOOOO go, I'm getting closer to the coffee shop, and still it's not coming off the peddle. Panic kicks in.. and then I'm reefing on my shoe.. but then the bike had stopped and down I went!!! It was like slow here I am on the cement, ego bruised, and still can't get my shoe to release from the clip. Had to take my shoe off, and standing there with one shoe on, and sock on the other! And embarassed as hell. Finally the shoe came off, and it turned out the cleat had rotated... so lucky for me the manager of Starbucks was a cyclist and he had an alan key. So with an Americano in one hand and tools in the other I fixed my shoes, and looked at what damaged might have been done to the bike!
And then enjoyed the ride home, laughing of my adventure. I am more bruised now then I have been in a long time, and this is all in one week!.

A day at the park

Today was a great day for Addy and I. We went to the park with Andrea, her daughter Kara, and her two sons Justin and Taylor. We wanted Addy to get used to everyone as Andrea will be watching Addy when I head back to work. I really don't think I have NOTHING to worry about as Addy took to Andrea NO problem. It was a wonderful time to feed the ducks and take pictures of the girls. Andrea took this picture of Addy and me. T here really aren't alot of pictures of her and I, and I wish I had more.

Well my inspiration today is my little one Addy. I mean what can you say she is my inspiration for everything these days. Her smile brings joy to everyone around her. She is very special and is very loved! I can't believe she will be one in a month. Where did the time go? I'm also back to work soon. I am going to miss her so much.

plants in the yard

I was trying to figure out what todays pictures will be until I looked outside and thought well I have some beauty in the yard. So here are some flowers, and grapes... YES I have grapes in the yard.
It's a hot day, and the house is staying cool. Today I helped Penny pick up her new bike. I'm very excited to get my chariot. I really don't have to much to say today. I'm a little tired and I think mentally drained.

People and Feet

Well I'm taking a bit of a journey and following the footsteps of a dear friend of mine Julie. She has been blogging everyday and showing pictures that she has taken (see links section). So today while listening to our PM talk, I looked around and took pictures of the crowds, and feet. Yes your heard me feet. I just thought wow, look at all the different pairs of shoes. So my picture of the day is feet.

Shyte and Snow birds

Well it's been awhile since i have written here. Alot is going on.

First of all this morning was a HUGE surprise. Walking into Addy's room, there was an odor of shyte (no other way to put it) not thinking much of it, until we walked up to her crib!!! It was everywhere. Bed sheets, clothes, hands hair, face, sheets, bed bumper, shall I go on!!! So my little angel had a morning bath, and her room aired out.

My mom purchased a bike for me, and I can't tell you the freedom I feel when I ride. Today I rod 13km. It was amazing. I need to add some bits to the bike (bell, rack on the back). This week I should be getting the Chariot, which means Addy will be able to come with me!

Now today was BC's 150 birthday, and Penny and I went down to the Legislature to listen to our PM talk and open the ceremonies. Alot of blah blah, but the best part was the snowbirds. They were amazing. I took some really amazing photos, they flew right over us. I had goose bumps just watching them.
