For today's theme, I was asked to post a photo of my hero. So, here's my dad, in a rare candid shot. He's actually quite shy, so it's hard to get a picture of him not posing. I love this one 'cause I caught him laughing. ;)

Today's theme is a close-up of a couple holding hands. Mark is at work right now and I'm stuck inside, but I found this picture on the hard drive of the two of us in Denny's the morning after our wedding. I took it with my cellphone while we sat together having our first breakfast as man and wife. I love it.

Today's theme is letters of the alphabet. We're supposed to find something that starts with a letter of the alphabet - but that includes anything and everything. I wanted to be a little more creative, so I took two shots of my bookshelves. Book starts with 'B' and books are full of all the letters of the alphabet. Also, books are one of my most favourite things.
As you can see, I have mostly fantasy novels. I love escaping into another world where magic is real, and the impossible is everyday.

Today's theme is light. So here's the light fixture that hangs over our dining room table. I think it's really pretty, but it is annoying as it hangs low enough to bump your head if you walk directly under it. This is one thing I will miss when we move - I will probably miss the built-in bookshelves even more, though.

My friend Jackie is housesitting for a couple of weeks and the people have a little Cockapoo named Zoey. She's so sweet. We went over there after church to have lunch and watch a DVD with Jackie and Zoey decided that we were her new best friends.

One of my best friends from high school, Tanya, messaged me on Facebook the other day and asked if we could have dinner before Mark and I move to Saskatchewan this fall. We went to Boston Pizza and I asked her if I could put this photo of her up here to document the day.

Kamloops is full of smoke again. These pictures were taken from the McDonald's where I work looking towards North Hills Mall. Usually, you can see mountains behind the mall. And usually, the mall is a lot clearer from so close.
I've got chest congestion and a headache from breathing this stuff all day.

Today was the 2nd and last day of our yard sale, and I couldn't have survived without this.
After yesterday's sunburn, I slathered on the spf 60 and wore a hat, but it was still very warm. Nice to see so many people and get rid of some stuff we don't need anymore, though.

Today's theme was 'retro' so I snapped this pic of Mark's vinyl Godspell album. It's funny, 'cause we don't even have a turntable record player. We'd like to get one of those newfangled ones that can plug into your computer so you can record the album onto MP3s.

The theme is animals, but we have none. I know, it's sad. I wish we had a couple: a dog and a cat would be great. Someday. So I took a picture of this Starbucks reindeer Mark bought for me a couple of Christmases ago. And yes, he's standing next to a Christmas card from last year that we're still displaying.

Today's theme is to post a picture of yourself with your significant other. Mark was out of the house all day, so I found a photo on the harddrive.
This picture was taken with our (brandnew then) webcam in January. We were in a car accident on December 30, 2009 and I broke my collarbone, hence the sling.

Today we went out for coffee with my best friend from high school, Tamara, at Zack's Exotic Teas and Coffees in the WalMart Plaza. It was rather overcast; we've had several forest fires in the area lately and the smoke has been thick. As we came out of Zack's, the sun came out and I snapped this picture of the sky.

We had a very busy day and I forgot to take pictures. :(
We had friends over for dinner so we cleaned the house before they came and then spent the afternoon with them.
After they went home, we relaxed with a little Lego Batman on the Xbox 360. I finally remembered I need to take a picture of something. lol

My husband Mark and my brother Ben at dinner tonight in Kelly O'Briens. I decided to add this photo to fit the theme of the most important person in my life, which is my hubby. :)
A tree in Riverside Park. I thought it looked cool.
