internet issues

Hi Everyone! I swear I'm not dead.....or lazy......I've been without internet for a few days!
As my luck would have it, the power was out in half of my apartment over the weekend. Of course it wasn't like a line down middle of our apartment, it was sporadically throughout everything. Example, in my kitchen, my oven/stove, microwave and light switch worked, but not my dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge and toaster. It was like this all over! (we did manage to Magyver something with the fridge so we wouldn't loose all our food, well, by the second day...bye, bye ice cream) the spot that was a little tricky was our bathroom. Showering by candle light is not as easy as it sounds......that reminds me, I need to get new candles. Anyway, things are pretty much back to normal around here. Thank goodness!! Missed you Lovelies!

p.s. Autumn is trying to happen in Vancouver, the temperature says so, but the trees still need some convincing.

same tank top, different day

I think this must be my new favourite tank top, its was seen in my last outfit here.
Oh well, don't judge, I like what I like ;)
These photos were taken in Horseshoe Bay while waiting for the ferry to Bowen Island. We missed the earlier one, so ended up having to wait almost two hours for the next one! We made the best of it.

fall is autumn

Now that October is here and in full swing, I'm really excited to be dressing for fall. I'm a sucker for anything cozy, cableknitted, or just downright comfy. Ya know, the 3 C's of cold weather. I plan on doing a lot of my own knitting this year and wearing my own creations (as long as they turn out ok). I've recently been introduced, a free site for knitters and crocheters.
Grab a hot apple cider and take a look my inspiration for this years fall season.

sister visit part 2

It was so great to have my sister here for the first time. She is the first of my friends and family to come and visit. It means so much to me that I had the chance to show her our new, happy little life out here on the westcoast. I have a feeling she may relay back to my parents and friends, that now that she's it it for her own eyes, they can all breathe a little lighter because I'm doing just fine.

sister visit

Having family close by makes everything better. During my sister's visit to Vancouver we had such an amazing time! We played tourist in the city, and squeezed in so much to six days.
We took a day trip to Bowen Island, such a beautiful place. We went on a little hike and found a wonderful view, had lunch by the water, and walked around a little bit. By chance, we missed the earlier ferry both heading to and coming back from the island. Aside from bad timing of the ferry, and a bit of unexpected chilly weather, I think the next time I visit Bowen will be to try some outdoor activities, kayaking and camping perhaps?
