Keeping My Word in Pictures

I left you last week saying I would get out and I would take pictures.

We did both!

It was gorgeous!  The sun was shining and the snow was melting.  The wind was on the cool side but one couldn't complain for a February day in Ontario!  That is until two days later when the skies opened up and dumped a foot of snow on us....but we won't talk about that.

 So yes, the kids and I enjoyed the nice weather and I got in a couple of shots with my ol' camera.


Like this beauty...I love the old architecture of our city!

I'm having some 'fun' in Photoshop lately, seeing as Picnik is done in April.  I'm sure going to miss that site! :(  I am pretty versed in Photoshop but I love the ease and simplicity of Picnik!

It was good to be behind the lens - I didn't take oodles of photos as I had hoped but I took more then I have in a while, enough to even make two posts! Ooooh, bet you can't wait for the next one! lol!

In other news, I have also been trying to eat a 'better' breakfast.  As opposed to coffee and something sweet. Okay, it's not my fault that cake and coffee go so well together and that I can't drink coffee after lunch....*wink wink*.  So I'm opting for something filling and with preferably protein, like eggs, toast with PB or oatmeal - something to hold me longer and keep me fuller.  This gives me better energy and makes me a little less grumpy. ;)

So here are some breakfast photos to share....'cause I promised more photos....not necessarily interesting ones! HA!

My kids love eggs!  This makes for a happy momma and littles - plus will be a great thing when we get chickens....someday.

So there you go, keeping good on my word, to get behind the lens and live a little at the same time.  It's still a challenge with life happenings, the weather being so crazy, the 'funk' feeling I get into now and again, with busyness, with laziness, with a crazy active baby kicking my insides apart, but I did it.


And I leave you with my favourite picture of the past week.  It's of the first bud from my Christmas cactus...better late then never?!?!  But it comes so bitter sweet.  This little cactus was an off shoot of my dad's cactus - he gave me a little transplanted piece in a favourite pot of his, a little over two years ago. 

It has finally bloomed.

  The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad;
the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus;
 it shall blossom abundantly
and rejoice with joy and singing.
   The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
the majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
   They shall see the glory of the Lord,
the majesty of our God. 
Strengthen the weak hands,
and make firm the feeble knees.
  Say to those who have an anxious heart,
Be strong; fear not!
Behold, your God
will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
He will come and save you.”

   Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
then shall the lame man leap like a deer,
and the tongue of the mute sing for joy.
   For waters break forth in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert;
the burning sand shall become a pool,
and the thirsty ground springs of water;
in the haunt of jackals, where they lie down,
the grass shall become reeds and rushes.
  And a highway shall be there,
and it shall be called the Way of Holiness;
the unclean shall not pass over it.
It shall belong to those who walk on the way;
even if they are fools, they shall not go astray.
 No lion shall be there,
nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it;
they shall not be found there,
but the redeemed shall walk there.
  And the ransomed of the Lord shall return
and come to Zion with singing;
everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain gladness and joy,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Isaiah 35



  1. Nice post. Such beautiful little them. And the Scripture is wonderful. Does my heart good :)

  2. Oh your girls are gorgeous. I love the pic of the eggs and <3 toast. It made me hungry, too. Food is not an easy thing to photograph. I give mad props to those food bloggers. I long for the day when the Lord returns, too. I pray he doesn't tarry long. :)

  3. Great pics and good to see you out behind that camera! Take care. Those girls are so cute!


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
