I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been stuck in the winter doldrums. My topic is those simple pleasures that you love to do and that bring a smile to your face when you think about them. For me, it is my knitting. To you it may just seem like sticks and string,but whenever I am stressed or down in the dumps, I can just pick it up and feel all the tension melt away as I hear the click of the needles and watch my project grow. What is your simple pleasure?

Wow! I can't believe how long I have been away from this, and it is still going!! That is so cool! Everyone ought to make a concept-blog and then bail out, and then come back, just so they can be amazed that their idea still lives on!! Good on ya, all!! ;D!
Fall is... the corn getting harvested. This is this morning... when I came home for lunch, the corn was all gone...

The little orange pill is so small that if I have to pick one up at work, I bust out the tweezers. The big white pill is soooo large I don't know how people swallow them!

Since I dragged everyone down (including myself) with my post below, I am jumping in with an idea that's got a lot of happy and cute potential. BIG and little.
My little poodle is on the left. Our next door neighbor's GINORMOUS mutt is on the right. They are good buddies.

I too have been absent for some time. Here's my construction shot - the new Lake Okanagan Bridge.
And a shot that wasn't taken through the windshield:
I took these photos as I was driving from my old house for the last time en route to the airport as I continue my long, drawn out move from British Columbia to Ontario.
Never thought that photos of a construction site would make me get teary.

yeah I am a little late with some of my finds...due to computer problems and a touch of laziness so here is an older topic (oddly enough one that I suggested, oh well)
My dirty little secret is that I hate to unpack my suitcases...I will leave them for months sitting around and we will live out of them...and then it will take several more months before they get put away...and generally we travel so much that they never get put away...what is a girl to do?!

Here's what's happening on Peachtree Road as recorded by my spy camera:
This crane is building this:
This condo complex is going to be huge.
And this crane is working on another set of condos only a block away.
This crane? Beats me. It's working on something near the hospital.
Now, this is all within one mile along Peachtree. I can only hope I'm gone before people start moving in. Traffic is going to be horrendous!

Minneapolis has several historic water towers. This oneabove is called The Witches Hat tower, and is located on the highest point in the city. The view from there is gorgeous.
Here's the other one, called The Washburn Water tower, named for the neighborhood that it looms over, and my old high school. The stone carvings on this one are make it look very ominous if you stand directly underneath. Both of them are prime tourist spots and very lovely places to be.

@ the ben and jerry's factory in Waterbury, VT I don't think they know if they want you to come or go...or maybe this is like a test for a new ice cream flavor..."do nut know what your doing" maybe it will have choc./van/coffee/strawberry/banana ice cream with every nut you can imagine and a chocolate swirl...oh heck what do I know I just went thru the door.
