Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Another Friday, another Photo Challenge. The theme for this week is ‘Spring’. I love it! Sadly, Ontario isn’t being a great host for Spring so far, but it’s getting there. The temperatures are definitely higher, but I would like to see a bit more sunshine. Here are a few pictures about Spring. Enjoy!

Fellow Eastern Canadians, are we in Spring or not?

I’m just confused. Please, clarify this for me. Am I going crazy?

I feel like I’ve been through a time warp and back in winter. I woke up this morning, happy, confident, energetic, ready to wear my runners once again, only to find a fresh coat of snow in the front yard. Please, tell me we won’t be getting more snow! It’s been a very long winter and as much as I love building snowmen and falling on my bum on the slippery sidewalks, I do want to feel the sun shine on my face, I want to wear sunblock, I want to go to the store without wearing 10 layers underneath. I hope we don’t have such a terrible winter next time 😦

Mother Nature, please get the memo. Spring = flowers, sun, a bit of rain, dresses, NOT snow and freezing temperatures.

*singing* Winter, winter, go away, don’t come back another day

Daily Prompt: Express Yourself

Another day, another Daily Prompt! Today, they want to know: Do you love to dance, sing, write, sculpt, paint, or debate? What’s your favorite way to express yourself, creatively?


That’s simple, I throw tantrums until I get what I want..just kidding!! :p. Although, there are times when I joke about it, “What??? Susan?? Like what like You don’t have chamomile tea? Like why??? You ruined my life, wahh *sob*.” But, they know I’m joking ;). I don’t talk that way.

To answer the question, the best way I express myself is through writing and talking. I love to talk. I have learned to control my talking, but if you let me I can go on and go forever, making sense of course. I have tried sculpting before, and I didn’t like it whatsoever, dark times I’m telling you. I only took it, because it was a requirement in college. I liked the writing portion of it, though, and my teacher even asked if he could use my reports for future presentations. To be honest, the writing helped me pass the class. I do paint, but lately I haven’t had the time to do it. I’ll probably buy supplies in the Spring —I know we’re in Spring, but it doesn’t feel like it here in Ontario — and paint on canvas again. I like music, but I cannot sing to save my life. If aliens came, they’d destroy each other if they heard me sing. I also like to express myself through my photography. I am not a professional photographer, but I love to capture moments in my life and share it with others :). 

Writing, talking, and photography, that’s what I’m TOLKIEN about :D. Ha ha, get it? No? No? Okay…

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.

Of course! The world rules my stomach!
