Sunday mornings driving around town has become mutually beneficial to both myself and my son – he gets in his driving practice whilst I get to play photographer. There’s so much more to see when you’re not the driver!
The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is… Lines.
A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

I’d Rather Be… grateful for each day lived, a life filled with beautiful sights, smells and experiences…
then regretting what has been or might have been, or even what should be!
Driving across central Iceland is like driving nowhere else in the world. Particularly in the dead of winter with a setting sun. Dormant volcanic mounds dot the landscape in every direction. The road the only evidence of man’s existence.
There was a rumor going around when we lived there, that this is where NASA would send it’s astronauts to get a sense of what it would be like on the moon. We believed it!
Out of This World is the current challenge of The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.
This restaurant’s exterior really caught my eye as we strolled through the streets of old Quebec City. Its whimsy reminded me so much of all the shenanigans of Peter Rabbit.
If only we’d had time to have a meal at this restaurant then I could have seen if this truly was inspired by Beatrix Potter or it was simply my imagination running wild.
The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Variations on a Theme.

Weathered is this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.
This young lad had us smiling out loud when he stopped by Christmas morning to complete our picture of a white, albeit a very light white, Christmas complete with (rein)deer. Bless him, the lone antler lad.
Growth is this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.
No matter what has transpired, or unfortunately hasn’t transpired during the day, being able to look out the window to witness Mother’s Nature’s closing act on the day brings about a calmness, a serenity like no other for me.
Evenings like this provide a wonderful reminder that no matter how wonderful or how frustrating today was, it was but just one day. Tomorrow the sun will rise again bringing with it another day of new beginnings.
Serene is The Daily Post Weekly Challenge for this week!
What better way to enjoy the cold weather then with a warming cup of soup. Last week I tried a new recipe of Roasted Peppers and Cauliflower. Topped with chili flakes and a handful of coriander leaves, it was simply FABULOUS!
It’s glorious how combining only a few vegetables with a stock over heat for a couple of hours transforms them into a completely different realm. Transformation is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.
And a HUGE Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends – may your turkey be hot whilst your drinks very cold!
After days of torrential rain and gale-force winds that striped my maple tree of all its leaves within a matter of hours, the sun is now shining, reminiscent of summer days that were. Days when dews drops glistened under the morning sun.
The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is… ROUNDED.
