PhotoHunt Catch-Up

Gosh, life has been busy I've not done a PhotoHunt since late May!!!  So here's two to start getting you all caught up.

May 28th theme was "Looking Down"

This picture was taken in August of last year at the Montmorency Falls just outside of Quebec City.  There's a bridge that goes right over the falls and you can look right down and over the falls.  Bonnie and I will be heading back later this summer with our significant others for a wee summer vacation.  We're really looking forward to it!

June 4 the theme was "Dirty"
This picture was taken this past February at the Batey Vascas outside of Consuelo, Dominican Republic.  A little girl is washing the family's dirty laundry.  I'm very excited to be going back with a different group of students next February!

Things have been crazy busy for me lately, this summer at work my carpets are being replaced!  What does this mean but having to pack an ENTIRE library into boxes.  Boy, I'm getting tired of the sight of boxes!  So today I got a wee bit creative with some of the empty boxes... proof I'm going around the bend?

Zeus is still proving to be quite a handful!  Here she is CHEWING on the stem of my grapes!  Naughty girl!

Its a long weekend coming up, we'll be celebrating Canada Day on Friday!  Living in the Nation's Capitol we have the opportunity to go downtown and celebrate on Parliament Hill.  I'd be absolutely CRAZY to go downtown this year William and Kate are in town!  I just don't tolerate crowds and idiots very well anymore... nor can I tolerate the drunk on the back of the bus who throws up once its all over on the way out of the downtown core.  I am looking forward to Saturday though, I'm doing my second race, the Perth Kilt Run, an 8 km race and the kilt is MANDATORY.  I've got to figure out how I'm going to carry my camera because I've got to get pictures of this race for sure!!!  Last year's race made the Guinness World Record!

Of course I hope to be able to find some time to stitch, I've not done much since Sunday.

Chris said...

Wow, all those boxes, That is a lot of work.
Zeus is so cute. I had forgotten how much kittens get into. The pair of cats that we had before the current two were 7 years old and pretty sedate.
Good luck in the race and I am looking forward to those pics!

Hope you've got most of the work wrapped up for now. What's depressing is knowing that all those boxes have to be unpacked again at some time!
Good luck with the race. We're staying away from downtown too. Besides I can't stand for long periods right now.
Hope you have a wonderful Canada Day!

Having moved our library 4 times, Dani--I totally feel for you! My back is a lot older than yours and I'm not sure it could take another stint of packing up all those books! Enjoy that new carpeting though...

And best of luck in the race--it sounds like a lot of fun with the kilts and all :)

Happy Canada Day tomorrow!!!

That's a lot of boxes to pack! Worse than packing them is the unpacking!

Hope you have a great Canada Day weekend! I don't think I'll be taking part in the local festivities because it's always insanely crowded and I just don't do well with crowds. But a family BBQ might be in order! :)

Can't wait to see the pics of your next run. The runners in kilts will be so funny to see.

Good luck with your race, Dani. I don't tolerate crowds well either!! (Or the drunk on the bus. ICK!!) I hope you enjoy your kilt and figure out how to carry your camera. Love the pic of Zeus. She's just beautiful!!! (She also looks dead on my Yes Dear, lol.) Hope you get more stitching time soon, and good luck getting everything packed up and moved!

I thought moving house was bad enough, but having to pack up a library for new carpets must be worse. Zeus is gorgeous. Don't stress about the giveaway, it will get here when it gets here. I know how busy things can get I feel like I am continually juggling everything around.

Rosie does the exact same thing with grape stems and if you leave them unattended they disappear
