#FMSPhotoaDay- Week 5

Wow, another week done and it’s already February? Seriously, where has this time gone! This week I finished my fabulous vacation in the Philippines… I went to Palawan and visited an underground river & then up to EL Nido to do some island hopping. So much fun. I also flew back to Toronto via Vancouver from Manila. That wasn’t as much fun but a necessary evil when you travel!

Here’s the list from week 5.


Day 26: three things… My passport, boarding pass and a hot chocolate! This photo was taken about 4am—it was an early start to the day, left my friends house at 2am to get to the airport and be checked in ready to fly for our 5:30am flight!


Day 27: morning– my view from breakfast on the roof top dining room of our hotel. Breakfast was an important part of the day to prepare for island hopping.


Day 28: strange…while travelling in the Philippines I discovered this strange thing by accident luckily the first time I had some paper with me in the stall. But when washing my hands I saw where it was! In the airport washrooms (& some public malls) if there is toilet paper it’s outside the stall & you collect it before going in!


Day 29: Summer/Winter… The sign of a fabulous summer vacation is a
Most completed…a completely trashed pedi!


Day 30: fave food…airplane food isn’t my fave but was all I are today on my long ground-hog day flight back to Canada! (I call it a ground-hog day because I left Manila at 4:30pm and arrived in Vancouver at 12:30pm the same day…yahoo for ‘time travel’ via crossing the international dateline!)


Day 31: on top…SNOW!!!


February Day 1: on my plate…unpacking, sorting and repacking for my flight home to Nunavut on Tuesday. Have all my ‘mad’ shopping done for my trip home just need to get everything all packed up in suitcases.

Wordless Wednesday LVIII: Fraser Island, Australia (2004)

Fraser Island, Australia

One of my favourite shots from exploring Fraser Island, Australia in 2004.  It’s getting close to the time I’m coming home…I really hope my vacation went as planned and I was able to have a bit of beach and sun adventures!

#FMSPhotoaDay- Week 4

Wow, a week of fun has flown by so fast having fun exploring here in Manila and Boracay. Even with all my travelling I was still able to share some snaps of my travels. I can’t wait to get home and process all my Canon 6D shots! But let’s not get ahead of myself– I still have 5 more days in the Philippines and travelling again this week to see another region!

Here was the list of prompts for week 4.


Day 19: homemade… I shared this snap of the quilt I’ve been working on for over a year! I just have to finish hand quilting the blocks–I have 7 out of 20 done. Can’t wait to get home and work on this project again.


Day 20: window… This shot was taken at the Manila Cathedral.


My runner up for day 20… From Fort Santiago- it was a dungeon window! Had to share both…


Day 21: in a row…took this photo while waiting for my flight to Boracay.


Day 22: collection of coral and shells!


Day 23: something far away…sailboats in the horizon.


Day 24: playtime… For these three brave souls on the reverse bungee!


Day 25: black + white… Just walking down the street singing with a baloon!


Another week of photos is done! Check out this Photo A Day list for Week 5. Play with me? #fmsphotoaday


Wordless Wednesday LVII: Big Sweater Lil Baby

In December I visited my friends in Toronto and met their new daughter who was about 8 weeks old. She was so adorable…oh new baby cuddles are the best!  Big Sweater-Lil baby

I knit the sweater, and know that she’ll grow into it soon…for now it’s just a wee bit big, but fits if the sleeves were rolled up! Big sweater- lil Baby 2

#FMSPhotoaDay 2015- Week 3

Another week of daily photos are done! This was my last week in Melbourne, Australia…and it was jam packed with lots of activities and fun. I did manage to keep up and take a photo-a-day. Though at times I almost forgot until the last minute to snap a shot!

Here’s the list from last week:


Day 12: bright…it was so bright out we all had to wear sunnies!!!


Day 13: lucky number…13 has always been my lucky number! Here’s 13 pieces of sea glass I picked up with my cousins the day before on a beach walk in St. Kilda.


Day 14: new…windows! Yahoo for the renovation process…


Day 15: old…windows!


Day 16: nature… Palm trees are so fun to look at!


Day 17: Jump… After a day of wine tasting in the Yara Valley, I asked my cousin to jump for me while we waited for the train home!


Day 18: Today is…the day I leave Australia, but still have 2 weeks of adventures in the Philippines!


That’s a wrap on another week!!! I’ll be playing along for week 4…but not 100% sure about my internet access while I’m visiting the Philippines…so might not post every day! If you want to play along here’s the list for week 4!
