Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Z is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2019 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (A picture-story a day (in the life, so to speak)), and as I have every year, I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly – this year I didn’t even plan to do otherwise!  So, here goes nothing 🙂

Today, Z is for…Zee End!

Well, there you have it.  A to Z finished for another year.  Doing nothing specific was kind of fun, but I think next year I need a real theme again because that really pushes me, plus I usually learn some cool stuff.

So, farewell (for now) from Jasper and Elliot and Nicholas, and me…Mr. Dressup (if you are Canadian, you laughed!)

Today, Y is for…Yacht (or a part of one).

I don’t know why, but I like taking pictures of masts.  Not the ships (boats?) themselves – that would be expected.  But masts. Don’t ask why…there is no point.

So, here are some masts from a photo excursion this weekend.

Today, W is for…Why Not?

Meaning, when I go for a walk, I typically take pictures others might not take, and when asked “why?”, I say “why not?”  Here is a small selection of Why Not photos from today’s walk!

Finally – it was time to get my hair done, and I had a hankering to go back to being a redhead.  It’s been a long time, and I am SOOOOOO happy I have gone back!  It is amazing, and I feel incredible!

Today, U is for…Ungulate’s Feast

Here in Victoria we have deer…lots of deer.  And in some areas, tulips need to be kept in cages as they are apparently a delicacy for said ungulates.

So, to all those people who have to cage tulips…

I say, come to our neighbourhood where tulips roam free!

Today, T is for…Truly Random Tuesday Pictures

A pretty random set of pictures I took today on a couple of walks, the first on my way to my training session, and the second my lunch time work walk.  Nothing like random pictures of nothing in particular to start the week!

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: R is for…Rather Late (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2019 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (A picture-story a day (in the life, so to speak)), and as I have every year, I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly – this year I didn’t even plan to do otherwise!  So, here goes nothing 🙂

Today, R is for…Rather Late with this Post

Ok, I admit it.  I am a day late, but it’s the weekend, and A to Z typically takes Sunday off, so I think I’m ok.  I do have a good excuse.  Company was coming to stay for a few days, so we were cleaning up the house and the garden and lawn, and then had to boogie out to the airport.  Unfortunately, our company had to leave first thing this morning as her kitten was very sick.  She had been hoping it would be good news, and we followed along with texts from her boyfriend who was taking her kitten to the vet for multiple tests, but by 9:00 past night, it was clear the news was not good, so she booked an early flight back.  We are sad to see her go, but even sadder she has to go through this with a beloved friend.

So, I am Rather late, but with a Rather good Reason.

I do have some Random pictures to share with you, from the brief time our friend was here.  Send her your thoughts – she is having a very rough day.

First, some odd things at the airport:

Very odd…kid’s play zone?

There are a lot of things you aren’t allowed to smoke at the airports in B.C.!

Random hydrant…

A couple of moon shots from our walk to the breakwater at 10:30pm.

And finally…

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Q is for…Quite a Lazy Day (#AtoZChallenge)

Today, Q is for…Quite a Lazy Day.

The first day of an extra-long weekend, spent reading books in front of the fireplace with kittens and Kevin nearby.  Yes, I should have been doing a bit of house cleaning for company coming, but there is still tomorrow!

Quiet Quality time with Quintessentially Quaint, and sometimes Quite Quirky Kitties.
