182 of 365 Back Yard BBQ

I am officially half way through this years 365... except officially it is a 366 year. :)
While we don't have a back yard yet, we do have a deck so the Saturday night 'Bible Study' gang came for a BBQ tonight. Heather and Leah arrived for dessert so I missed them in the photo. I guess I should have waited but didn't think when I took the photo. It was a fun evening - they stayed past 11pm! Never got to Romans 10 but talked about a lot of other things. :) We sure enjoyed a nice hot summer evening which has been a rarity in our neck of the woods.

181 of 365 Back Yard

Well look what happened while I was at work today. The landscape guys finally showed up to start the back yard. It was supposed to be done 3 weeks ago but the rain has kept them away. It has been frustrating to say the least since we have been in deconstruction mode for several months now.
Stay tuned and I will try to record the progress.

This is Suzie at our work picnic tonight. Suzie works tirelessly to plan and work out the details of all our social gatherings with the work crowd. I don't think she gets thanked enough. Thank you Suzie!

176 of 365 Baptism

The saints gathered by the river today, or in this case Pike lake, to witness the baptism of three people. God is good!

Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

174 of 365 Water Park

Today we went to the water park. Eva was much more cautious with water coming out of fountains then she was with water raging down the South Saskatchewan river.

Norah watched from the sidelines. More photos on the regular BLOG.
Thanks for all your kind comments on yesterdays photo.

173 of 365 Miss Eva

Tough choice tonight.
Love this first photo of Eva taken at City Perks where we had a bite to eat for lunch. A VERY expensive bite I might add. :)

Oh this poor girl.
Grandma just can't stop kissing her.

Then we checked out Saskatoon's beach.... sand bar.

More photos from this experience on the regular Blog...

But first leave a comment. :)

172 of 365 Geraniums

Another long day at work. So that means another flower from my garden. They seemed to have survived the non stop rain.

I am pooped. Burning the candle at both ends again. The screen is blurry! So tonight you get one shot of my well watered purple petunias. Now I am going to bed. :)

165 of 365 Off to the Mall

Well what are four girls to do on yet another rainy day? Bundle everyone up along with all their paraphernalia (which is no small feat) and head to the mall. And underground parking? - heaven sent when it is raining and you have a giant stroller to get in and out of the car.

So here is Eva as we left the house to go to the mall.

If I had been thinking I would have brought the camera out when we let Eva out of the stroller in the change rooms..... she was quite a busy girl checking it out - especially those doors that don't go down to the ground. But I was trying on clothes and the 365 was the furthest thing from my mind.

163 of 365 CEO Material

"Grandma, I would like to propose we put off all potty training. I am prepared to revisit this idea in six month okay? So I would like to make a  motion to remove it from the agenda today."
"All in agreement?"
"Norah will you second that?"

More CEO shots on the blog but leave a comment first. :)

159 of 365 When the Cats Away....

Both our husbands are out of town so after a busy day Linda and I sit on the deck and enjoy a fresh salad, some appies, a fabulous warm evening, laughs and some wine. Life is good.
No word from Air Canada......
The cats are due back tomorrow night. :)

158 of 365 Victoria Street Bridge

Sigh, it's not an huge iceberg or a fishing boat in the harbour, a lighthouse or rolling streets filled with colourful homes; it's not Cape Spear or Signal Hill - all places on my planned tour today - no it is not St Johns, but the Saskatoon Victoria St bridge soon to be demolished because it is unsafe to walk on. Too bad - on both accounts. :)
I stopped by the bridge briefly today after dropping Allison and the girls off. I really resisted taking a photo of the girls. As cute as they are, I am going to try and resist all this week as I get over not being able to photograph St Johns. :)

157 of 365 Expensive Glass of Wine

It's a long story so see the Blog if interested.
Here is a very expensive glass of wine I had during a very long and expensive day in the Toronto airport. Not how you want to spend $ or 18 hours!
We are home and did not make it to St Johns thanks to fog and Air Canada.
it is soft (blurry) on purpose..... because that's just what it looked like after several hours in line ups with Air Canada.....we ordered food too. :)

156 of 365 Packing the Gear

Yup, emptying cards, charging batteries and choosing lenses. Nope not a wedding shoot. We are heading to St John's, Newfoundland for 6 days and I hope to get some great photos. The forecast is for rain - lots of it -  and balmy highs of 8C. So I have dug out all the winter clothes too!
Boring finance lectures for David and a ton of walking and photos for me. :)
Plus pretty good food!

153 of 365 David

Picked up a few shifts with the Health Region this week and David came home late last night. So we snuck in lunch at the Ivy. It's been a while since we have done this - like 6 months? This whole commute to Yorkton for a week at a time means a lot less 'us' time. So I enjoyed today. And I am thankful to have him home a day early.
