Yup, things are getting back to normal around here. If by normal, you mean getting up at the crack of dawn and crawling around in the wet grass to look for shots of dewdrops.

Things have been hectic around here. Playhouse wrap up is always busy and ny mother was staying with us while she was evacuated from Slave Lake due to fires. She has gone home now ... well not quite home but she is staying at my sisters and is due home on Monday. This weekend has been very busy and alot of fun. But watching this sunset all alone seemed like a special treat.

Early Morning Solitude

Getting up very early in the morning for bootcamp 3 times a week has it's perks. This is a pond that I pass by on my way to Sexsmith.

The place we once called home, Slave Lake, Alberta

Heartbreaking. We are still waiting for news. Extra help is coming from all over the country to help fight the fires. And we are getting a sense of the heart of Alberta as people show their support with donations and offers to house displaced ppl and animals.

Fire in Town of Slave Lake.

I found this photo on the net. It is a photo of a firefighter standing in front of his home in Slave Lake Alberta. The destruction that is happening there boggles my mind. My mom who lives there, and my sister who lives in the neighbouring town , have found a safe place to be. Thank God for that. They are not able to go home because the fires are still raging. It sounds horrible to hear their voices as they talk about the waiting and the not knowing. All my love to them. But what I would really like to say is Thank you so much to the brave firefighters who are risking their lives to battle the fires. Many of whom have lost everything.

Sloth and Gluttony

The last ten days have been full of celebrations, food, friends, family,babies, cake, late nights, late mornings, laughter, love and did I mention FOOD. I noticed yesterday that I was feeling happier and more relaxed than I have in a very long time. The downside of this blissful decadance was this morning. After pulling my reluctant and expanding rearend out of bed at 4;45 ... that's right A.M. I took it to get tortured at bootcamp. It was a slaughter really. I almost broke into tears at one point. How could ten days of sloth and gluttony have gotten me so far behind. I was determined to get back on track. That is after I went for a not so healthy breakfast with my sweetheart of a Daughter in law. She gave me these wonderful blue orchids, a giant balloon...(barely fit in my car) and a little friend for squirrel. Thank you guys soo much , you sure know how to show a fat girl a good time.

"It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace."

Christopher MorleyHappy Mother's day to every Mama.


One of the great things about taking photos is that people are always interested in what you are doing. Last night while I was taking photos of this old house, Sadie and her people (Clara and Ernest) and I had a good visit while the sun set.
