photofriday

The moment I saw that the word “Curvy” was today’s Photo Friday prompt, I knew exactly which picture I wanted to feature in my post – one I took a couple of years ago of a wonderful sculpture called “Neighbours” by artist Joe Rosenthal. [click to continue…]

100 Happy Days – Day 20

happysmiley

To be quite honest, today’s descriptor falls more along the lines of blah than happy. The weather, while warm enough, is dull and grey with no trace of our recent streak of sunshine and blue skies. Peter has been struggling with hip pain for quite awhile [click to continue…]

Remember how I’d previously tried to capture smell in a photograph? Well, today I’m going to attempt something even more difficult with my Happy Day photo: to transmit the warm, rumbling, companionable sound of Oscar’s purr as he lounged on my desk [click to continue…]

Though it’s technically impossible to actually transmit smell via photograph, I’m sure as heck going to give it a shot today… because the aroma of this morning’s freshly-ground coffee beans was utterly intoxicating. Talk about an instantaneous happy day! [click to continue…]

Just in case you happen to be following along, I thought I’d mention that I decided to skip Photo Friday this week. My archives didn’t turn up anything that I thought would be suitable for today’s “Falling Apart” prompt, and after a hectic workday I can’t [click to continue…]

Today’s happiness is brought to you by some pretty purple flowers which are growing along our back fence. They could well be weeds or otherwise undesirable foliage (and, knowing the sorry, shameful state of our yard, it’s highly probable), but [click to continue…]

My choice for today’s Photo Friday “Home” prompt isn’t actually a picture of my home, but rather a remarkable building fondly known as “Canada House” which is located not all that far from our place in Windsor. As you can well imagine, it’s a bit of [click to continue…]

Well, I can’t say that today’s been a particularly happy day… more like an incredibly frustrating one! Why, you ask? Well, mostly because all of my time in between work and the other things I needed to do was spent attempting over and over [click to continue…]
