We were all surprised by how frigid Crescent Beach was this afternoon. My teeth were chattering and my fingers were numb when I fumbled around with the camera (shocked anything was in focus). Considering the 6 feet of snow the folks in Buffalo are shovelling out from under, I can hardly complain…oh yes I can.
There’s just something so soothing about watching the sun sparkle on the ocean. I took some time out to appreciate the beauty around me today–a welcome break!
The older I get, the more emotional I am on Remembrance Day. I think it’s because I have children, and I imagine how all the mothers and fathers have suffered throughout history watching their beloved children go to war. Such a huge sacrifice for our peaceful lives, which should never be forgotten.
I also get emotional whenever I see the Canadian flag, because I’m so grateful for what it represents.
I appreciate my kids, who came with me and suffered through the embarrassment of a mother with a camera on a really cold day!
How can you tell I’ve been spending time at White Rock Beach lately? I promise. When the sun shows itself, I’ll get photos of all the trees that are starting to bloom and the crocuses that are poking up through the dirt. I’m crossing my fingers that the rest of Spring Break will bring loads of sunshine!!!! I’m crossing my eyes and toes too.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might notice that I like crows. They’ve got personality, and they’re rife with symbolism. Now if only I could get them to stop spying on me from my neighbour’s roof and swooping in for my bird feeders the minute they think I’m not in the kitchen. They won’t get the best of me, though. I’ve got a crack team of four-legged furry crow snipers, who I trained to fly out the back door and on to the lawn at the mere whisper, “Go get ’em.”

I got a little sidetracked by the good weather and school Spring Break last week, so I have to make up for the photos I didn’t post. Otherwise, I’ll never make it to 365 in time for the New Year!!! Bear with me, folks.
This is the lone tulip that is about to burst open in my garden. Kind of pathetic standing all alone.
