Bright Colours in the Village of Grimsby Beach

thanks to Becky B for hosting BrightSquare https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/24/bright-square-24/

Yesterday my husband and I did a short road trip to the Grimsby Beach Village. This area next to Lake Ontario was originally a Methodist Camp in the 1800s and people came from all over Ontario and New York to spend part of their summers here.

In the early 1900s the tents were replaced with cabins and a couple of hotels were built to accommodate the growing number of tourists.

Today the homes are all privately owned but the community has decided to continue painting and decorating their houses in bright colours.

Close-up for January Squares – Jan. 11, 2021

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/11/square-up-11/

I could never get this close to any bird in the wild but these two birds were captured inside a snow globe and a Christmas ornament.

Our PUPs for January Squares

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/10/square-up-10/

In our extended family we have three special pUPs. You’ve seen all of them at one time or another on my blog. Recently I posted a photo of Olive jumping up on the beach and I explained to some of you that Olive needed surgery. Well here she is back from the vet hospital. She ruptured a disc in her neck and after the surgery her prognosis is good. No jumping or running for awhile. That will be hard for this little girl.

The other two dogs are Frances who is 14 and Lucy who is 12 1/2. Their days consist of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping and eating and then sleeping some more.

SquareUp – All Lit Up as You Look Up the CN Tower

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/08/square-up-8/

The CN Tower in Toronto was for many decades the tallest structure in the world. It is often lit up in different colours to celebrate special days such as Pride Week, when the tower is lit in rainbow colours. When our sports teams win championships the tower lights up in the team colours.

Looking Up – Getting Up and Moving Forward

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/07/square-up-7/

On Day 7 we need to find joy in the world and not look down or backwards. Children teach us to look up and out as they explore their world. Our granddaughter brings us UPmost joy. I know it should be utmost but due to the challenge I’m taking some literary license.

The first photo was taken by her father when they went on a hike through the woods. He swears she did not pose for this shot. This stance came out of the blue. The second photo was taken by me. She was looking up at me as I stood on the porch (six feet apart).

Jumping Up in the Air – Day 6

….thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/06/square-up-6/

Olive loves to jump. How do you discourage that behaviour after one (Olive) slips a disc. The pain meds and muscle relaxants have slowed her down somewhat but I think this jumping thing is in the Frenchie DNA.

January Squares….SoUP for sUPper

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/02/square-up-2/

Day 2 of SquareUp. Today I chose to find words with Up in them. While shopping at the top of the street I was thinking of this challenge and wondering how I could include supper in this post. Then I remembered that I had a pot of soup on the stove that I made earlier today for tonight’s supper. Easy peasy!

It was delicious by the way. Sausage meatball and ravioli in a chicken broth with some veg for extra goodness.

The Eyes Have It

….thanks to Becky B for hosting kindasquare for the month of Octoberhttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2020/10/27/kinda-square-27/

I love or take kindly to the eyes of animals and birds. I often wonder what they’re thinking and try to see if there are any clues in the eyes.
