Random Thoughts From A Sleepless Night

I wonder where Calico bunny is?

Why does water taste better when you drink it out of a pretty bottle?

Why are badgers so mean?

Why can't I write in my "I Can't Sleep" journal when I can't sleep?

Why would a sheep wear sheep wool lined slippers?

Why are the first purples of spring the prettiest?

Why does egg salad taste so good with diet pepsi?

Why does this bird remind me of Rusty from The Friendly Giant show?
(you might need to be over 40 to get that one)

Anybody have any good tips to share
on how to stop your brain from racing
during the middle of the night?

Odd and Interesting Things

Last Saturday, in search of an owl
Wayne and I spent about an hour walking around
on the beach of the Saskatchewan Landing.
The water is very low and of course, still frozen.
But we did see some odd and interesting things!
Odd: One lone sandal sitting on top of the snow?
I can understand underneath, but not on top.   
Interesting: A split rock with
all it's pieces aligned.
Interesting: One lone leaf looking a bit like
a stingray swimming at the bottom of the water.
Odd: Is this a rock?
A bit of petrified wood?
I didn't touch it.
Interesting: Lots of pieces of wood weathered by
water, sand, wind and sun.
Odd: A boat sailing across
the prairie grasses.
Odd: A rock shaped like a skull.
Can you see it?
Interesting: A little rock shaped like a heart.
Odd: A piece of driftwood
looking a bit like an old dinosaur skeleton.
Interesting: A little yellow shovel
waiting for a wee hand to come and play with it.
Interesting: Wayne was walking ahead of me
and he appears to have left me a message.
Odd: Wayne still has some coffee left.
I would have thought it would be cold by now.  
Interesting:  I asked Wayne to take a photo of me
walking down the beach as I had
taken so many of him.
Odd:  Stanley!!!  I meant take a photo of
ALL of me walking down the beach!
Odd:  Where does Stanley's hair stop
and the white sky begin?
Odd: It appears neither one of us
knows where we are kissing.  That would be because
I had to photoshop our photos together
and our lips didn't line up.  ;)
We got a dump of snow yesterday with
predictions of more snow today.
It appears winter has not passed us by quite yet.

Have a cozy Sunday!

Yes... I do take requests!

This post is for sweet Anesha who is owned by
an adorable orange kitty named Skipper and who
requested more of Banjo!  I aim to please....  ;)


When it's cold outside and you are spending the day
relaxing on the couch watching the Feather Channel...

It's good to have a cozy blanket.... errr....
a cozy furry belly to keep your feet warm.

nice and cozy warm under that big ball of...
ummm.... fluff...

that's a lot of 'over hang' Banjo.

But at least you are nice and warm
while watching the little birds
freeze their tail feathers off!

(Actually...it's really not that cold out and we only have a skiff of snow.)

Speaking of bird watching...
look who was at the end of my street again yesterday
when I got home last night after work!

Hey sweet owl!
Could you not move down from the light post onto perhaps
a low hanging tree branch so that I could
maybe get a better photo of you?

what I wouldn't give for a 400mm lens...

Happy Thursday!

Let's Try That Again

Dear yellow flowers,
I promise to take better care of you than I did my pink flowers.
With love,

Opportunity Right Around The Corner

So remember a couple of weeks ago I said Wayne and I saw some
Snowy Owls as we drove home from Regina and that I didn't have my camera?

We went out for about a two hour drive in the country that same weekend...

We went out for about a two hour drive in the country last weekend...

We went out for about a two hour drive in the country yesterday...

And then, coming back into the city yesterday...a Snowy Owl!
Sitting as pretty as you please on top of a light post.

The kicker?
The light post it was sitting on is about 3 blocks from our house!!!!

Are you kidding me?

A white bird and a white sky
not the easiest to capture!

S/he was still there 2 1/2 hours later.

Clearly the 'night life' of the city was calling.

It was a hard week...


Friday nights.
Aren't they perfect?
You have the whole weekend ahead of you.
And this one happens to be a long weekend.
Monday off ~ "Family Day" here in Saskatchewan.

Woot woot!

I think I will go buy a new plant tomorrow and try again.

Have a good one!
