Eye Candy

I'm busy working on a whack of projects, so I have nothing interesting to show you.  How about I post a big fat photo dump, instead?

We took part in a volunteer event this weekend, cleaning up our favourite local beach:

Don't you hate it when you go swimming in the ocean and the water is so warm that it isn't even refreshing?  Yeah, me too.

Bald eagle, not a vulture (he/she's a teenager and still looks a little shaggy... I guess eagles are not unlike humans, that way).

Seeing these clouds, I fully expected a *mother* of a thunderstorm, but it never materialized.

Oh, and before I forget: I had City Boy (aka: Mr. Atmymothersknee) to pick one of your names out of a hat and the lucky winner is...

Congrats, sweetie!  As soon as I have the chance to take some decent photos of your colour/photo options (it's dark here, now), I will send you an e-mail so you can pick them out, ok?  That's when I'll get your address, too.

The giveaway was fun!  It's nice to get so many comments - I know that you guys are reading (that Google Analytics thing again), but it's gratifying to know WHAT you're reading and enjoying.  For example, I just posted the thing about our front porch so that you could see why I wasn't knitting and sewing (I feared that a mutiny would ensue if something fiber-related wasn't posted soon), but it turns out that a lot of folks enjoyed that one, as I've gotten a few e-mails about it in addition to the comments.  Interesting...

At any rate, I will definitely be doing another giveaway before too long.  It's good fun.


  1. Love the first photo. I just acquired a tonne of Mason jars myself, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with them.

    I have a few ideas, but my house is quite tiny, and as much as I'd like, I can't have it overtaken by glass jars.

  2. Goodness! That's me! :) Yay! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!

    Love the first photo. And the second!
