Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Quiet Places

thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge https://viewfromtheback.com/2020/09/25/friday-photo-challenge-63/

Whether it’s close to home or up at the cottage, my quiet places almost always include water. Pictures #1, 5 and 6 were taken right here in Toronto and the others from Georgian Bay.

Water, Water, Everywhere – #46

thanks to Jez for hosting Water,Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2020/09/21/full-speed-ahead-water-water-everywhere-46/

As many of you know I am always close to water. I live next to Lake Ontario and my cottage is on Georgian Bay. This past weekend I closed the cottage for the summer. I took one final walk on the beach Sunday morning and was greeted by the beautiful mist that was coming off the lake. Clearly the water was warmer than the air.

Sculpture Saturday – Sept. 19, 2020

thanks to Ruined for Life for hosting Sculpture Saturday https://smkelly8.com/2020/09/12/sculpture-saturday-36/

This week at WAAC (Women’s Art Association of Canada), I was helping clean up the gardens. As we were pulling out the weeds and trimming back some of the shrubs I discovered some hidden gems. The large sculpture of course was always visible but the two smaller ones were a surprise for me.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Morning Rituals

thanks to Sandy for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge https://thesandychronicles.blog/2020/09/18/friendly-friday-morning-rituals/

My morning ritual changes depending on the time of year and where I am. The one constant, though, is my morning coffee.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – Sept. 18, 2020

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the https://xingfumama.blog/2020/09/18/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2020-week-38/

Earlier this week I drove to the Women’s Art Association of Canada or WAAC building downtown to help clean up the garden in the back. They are suppose to be hosting a wedding this Saturday. Our COVID numbers were coming down in Ontario but recently they have started to spike again. There is talk of lowering the number of people allowed to gather in outdoor spaces again but the organizers don’t think that this will affect the wedding this weekend where about 30 people are expected to attend.

Hopefully these chairs will be in use on Saturday. If not it’s for a good reason.
