Random Photo(s) of the Day #16 – Inside a water bottle

I was feeling curious, so I took photos of the inside of my water bottle full of water and ice! It’s amazing how something so simple can be transformed into a different world. My friend thought it was an ocean wave!

One of my hobbies

It’s Sunday!!! And guess today’s temperature? 11C? Nope, 15C? Nope…22C!!!!!!!!! Mother Nature finally heard my cry for help. It is cloudy and a bit windy, but this is the best weather we’ve had this year. So, thank you Mother Nature, stay awesome!

I’ve talked (a lot) about my love for flowers. I love them all, but my favourite are multi-coloured ones. One of my hobbies is to make flower arrangements for any occasion. I haven’t done them in a while, but I do want to start again (just like painting). You can look forward to future posts about this :). I like to make hand-made gifts and this is a beautiful way to show your love for others. I’m waiting until the weather improves so the flowers won’t die on the way home (the shop is within walking distance). Here are some pictures of a small table arrangement I made for an event.

Have a fantastic day everyone! Don’t forget to share the love 😀

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

This week’s Photo Challenge is all about monuments! I’d like to start with a well-known monument, which is the CN Tower located in Toronto, Canada. The last 2 photos are monuments that captured my attention. The second gives me the feeling that something is underneath the earth, kind of like Alice in Wonderland. In the third photo you can see a cabin on your right-hand side. It looks like it is hidden. Enjoy :)!

Random Photo(s) of the Day #12…with a Story Starter…and Ellie’s daily update

Hi everyone! I hope the new week has been treating you well! IF NOT, let me know and I’ll call upon my army of penguins.

I added a little something extra to the title, because my random photo post has turned into updates, as well. It’s okay, though. It spices things up over here :D.

I woke up thinking it was Monday, but I guess my brain played an April Fools’ joke on me :p. Today was a good day, I went for a long walk (it’s finally sunny in Ontario!), and wrote my first post for the A to Z Challenge. I have a huge craving for cinnamon rolls, so I’ll probably have an unhealthy breakfast tomorrow. I’m learning French using the app called ‘Duolingo’. I know the basics, and I started using the app about 3 months ago, but I’ve been neglecting it. I have a French background so it’s only fitting that I learn the language. I already speak Spanish, so that’s out of the way (also have a Spanish background). Here’s hoping one day I’ll translate some of my work in French!

Today’s photos are of the most wonderful thing, okay ONE of the most wonderful things, in my life…drum roll please…FLOWERS. I love flowers, preferably colourful ones, but I’m not picky. I also love it when bees do not fly around them. I use flowers to let people know I care, to show my love, gratitude, or as a random gesture. I really do not need an excuse to give out flowers; I even give myself flowers (as sad as that may seem). Enjoy these photos and hope you have an awesome Tuesday and/or Wednesday (depending where you live). Ta ta for now!

Random Photo of the Day #4…with a Story Starter!

First of all, Happy First day of Spring! It feels like an ice apocalypse here in Ontario – poor Mother Nature probably got her heart broken by an Ontarian, and now she’s taking it out on all of us – but, I checked online and it’s supposed to get better.

It’s supper time for me, and therefore I’m hungry. How fitting would it be for me to post a photo of food? How about 2 photos? Today’s post contains a bonus! How awesome is that? However, in the spirit of being inspirational, I’m going to turn these photos into a learning experience.

How many times have we gone to the supermarket and impulse bought items, only to throw them away a few days later? I used to do that, not all the time, but quite a few. Let me tell you, now I only buy what I know I’m going to eat and it has worked for me. You have to remember how luck you are for having the means to eat at least, one meal a day. Even if you aren’t sure of what to buy, just buy what you know you will eat on that day, and then go to the supermarket the following day. It also gives you an excuse to get out of the house. Preferably, walk there and enjoy your city/town 🙂

If you need some ideas for snacks, here’s a list of my favourite ones: My Top 10 snacks.

Vancouver Photography

Last weekend I came back from a 3-week vacation at my home in Vancouver, BC! I’ve been working on my first short story for this blog called, “Laura’s Closet.” You can read the first 3 parts below. I’m taking a short break from editing the last parts, and I also want to give everyone a chance to catch up. So, here are some pictures from home :). Enjoy!

Ps: One of my friends gave me the penguin bag, you see in the first pic :). The food plate you see in the last one, it’s of a Peruvian dish called, ‘ceviche’.

Of course! The world doesn’t rule me today!
