Today I am disappointed. Disappointed that my trust in something has been lost, possibly forever. Disappointed that being good and loyal doesn’t seem to pay off in the end. Disappointed that sometimes it doesn’t seem to pay to care.
Luckily I still have many things to care about: Kevin, my family, my friends, my work crew (you know who you are) and of course, kitties!

Ah, yesterday. A day of relaxing and planting pots.
Here are some of the sights from the garden
New plants finally in pots
New buds ready to burst
And one already open
And here is the view as I sat on the deck stairs and contemplated.
And, of course, kitties

This is the perfect avoidance post – no order at all here!
We talked to the woman at the place we buy our coffee beans (Yoka’s) – she is a beekeeper as well – about an interesting beehive she is working with at her and her husband’s home on Pender Island. I asked if I could take a picture of some of the parts she had in the shop, as well as of the pictures she had taken of the hive (film!!) I can’t remember what this kind of beehive is called, but I thought it looked pretty cool.
Then later, some random shots of new things in the backyard
New poppy poppin’
And finally, random Jasper and Elliot pictures…well, mostly Elliot (the first one is Jasper)
Those of you who know Zombie Flamingos know that I never reblog things. But this – I could I NOT??
“This week, get inspired by the many connotations of the word “spare.””(https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/spare/)
- (adjective) Additional to what is required for ordinary use.
- (adjective) Elegantly simple.
- (verb) To refrain from harming.
I found myself intrigued by the second definition. I’ve never used “spare” this way before, but here goes:

Since we have some free rein, topic-wise, I decided for this week to play with some pictures I took with the big girl camera the other night on a walk with Kevin down to the breakwater. Obviously I have a LOT of work to do on my ability to use this mighty cam…

Catching up today on some challenges. Stupid stomach flu…
Let’s see…what’s odd for today?
I posted this as part of a walking post the other day, but it’s kind of odd (although these fish fences are on every school’s chain link fence in the city, so pretty normal around here).
And a couple of randoms from years back…

You know for a short work week, made even shorted due to being sick for 2 of the 4 days, it was sure jam-packed and busy. When I finally got home yesterday, I took some time to water the garden and take a few pictures of what’s happening there.
The raised beds. Don’t know why, but after I planted things, many of the leaves dropped off. Most of the plants seem to be coming back now though, so I hope they make it. Here’s what’s going on in the raised beds.
And on to prettier things – some flowers in the back (and a few that still need to be planted…tomorrow…)
