that kitten!

Norma, Norma,Norma, ... what are we going to do with you?!
you climb everything. you hang off the top of the door and jump down on the bird cage, ruffling the poor finches feathers.. How he is still not dead of a heart attack is beyond me!
you race through the house making it sound like we have a herd of elephants, plants dropping from high places as you go.. I have replaced so many pots since Josh took you in.. seriously, you need to get a job to pay for them, k?
you are the prettiest gray kitteh, big yellow eyes.. that's what I call you, you know "the yellow eyed monster"

I collect postcards and I really enjoy I put all my cards in a photobox, sorted by country, but I wanted to find something I could put them in that was visible for a while. I also love the secondhand store. :) I came across this somewhat older gum display and thought "hmm.. I wonder if that is the right size for postcards??" It's great for regular sized cards! and it reminds me of all the Juicy Fruit and Spearmint gum I bought when I was younger. I didn't like Big Red or Winterfresh but Doublemint was good in a pinch.

Off to Alberta

We went on a little road trip, my love and I. We happened to be around Okotoks/Black Diamond and I'd never been to the Big Rock.
I learned about big chunks of quartzite being brought by glacier thousands of years from Jasper. Cool!

Trying to catch up

my new back flower bed went a little nuts. this picture was taken before it got crazy. The sweet peas grew everywhere and the borage climbed all over everything.  Then the shrub I cut down that I thought might not grow back turned out beautiful but hung over half of what I planted.
 The kids and I only made it to the beach 3 times this summer. Made me very sad... this day ended early as those clouds got darker and it started to thunder.


apple trees..
I loved the borage flowers
the barn at the end of our driveway..
my friend who is a potter made plant markers this year. these are the ones I got..
