Day 179: Where I blog

Inspired by Misty's blog entry a few days ago - here is my 'Where I blog' image.  We have a spare bedroom in the house that we use as our 'home office'...or as we call it, 'the computer room'.

Day 176: Scrumptious

Baked some yummy brownies today! 

Day 175: Channa masala

Made some channa masala (spiced chickpeas), which I enjoyed with some roti. good!

Day 174: Zentangle

My sister introduced me to 'zentangle' - which is basically doodling...but in a more structured format.  The idea is that it is supposed to be relaxing and meditative...hence the 'zen' in the name.

Day 173: Giant hosta

This hosta plant in our backyard has grown into a giant!

Day 172: Daisy daisy

Happy first day of summer!

Day 171: A splash of colour

Some colourful candy sprinkles for if only I had some cookies to decorate!

Day 170: The bud

A daisy bud - very pretty...even before it has opened up into a flower.

Day 156: Webster's Falls Conservation Area

Spent some time enjoying the warm weather at Webster's Falls Conservation Area, near Hamilton, Ontario.  Lots of wild geraniums around...but also (unfortunately) lots of mosquitos!

Day 155: Still standing

These small white flowers are the only ones left from the colourful bunch that we had in the backyard.  Seems like that 'rascally rabbit' doesn't like white flowers!

Day 154: Friday afternoon in the Distillery District

Met my sister after work and we spent some time together walking through the Distillery District in Toronto.  The former Gooderham and Worts Distillery was founded in 1832 and was once the largest distillery in the world.  It now contains several restaurants, cafes, shops and art galleries.

Day 152: Evening by the pond

Went for a walk this evening, but it was too windy for any decent macro flower shots.  The evening light was really beautiful though and gave everything a warm glow.

Day 151: Garden hose abstract

Another pic from the backyard.  

Day 150: Missing flowers

We bought some small flowers to plant in the backyard...and they looked really nice....for a few days.  Then one day we noticed our resident backyard bunny sitting in the flower bed.  The next day, the flowers were all gone!  Argh!!
