but alas, i am currently on vacation! which means, i have cooked dinner the past two evenings, done numerous loads of laundry, had three lunch dates in three days, put a dent in my christmas shopping, enjoyed a generous sleep-in/lazy morning in bed, contacted a tv repairman, had a physio appointment, made cupcakes, and i still have two more days off before the weekend. while some people may strive for relaxation on a week off, i am need of a little bit more balance. i have been so busy that my list of 'things i would like to get done' seems to get longer as i try and keep up with my list of 'things i must get done'. so, i am quickly checking off items on the former list and subsequently reducing my impending stress as the holiday season approaches and the year draws to a close.
in the meantime, i have made a few updates to my blog, and will post a pic or two from the past couple of weeks.
a foggy day hike in lynn headwaters park was the perfect setting for an eery shot a few days before halloween.
ryan joined me one night on the pier across the street for my attempt at a 'rule of thirds landscape' shot for my course. i wan't to do something a little different than the typical mountains shots out here, so chose to shoot the city waterfront at night. the whole time ryan kept saying the dry dock would make a cool shot. he was right.
when he wasn't feeling very well, i had to drag him outside on the most perfect afternoon for this pic. i'm so glad he humoured me.
