vancouver's freshly fallen snow


fresh vancouver snow 001


Last night there was a snow storm in Vancouver. By snow storm I mean that it was lightly snowing but also there was thunder and lightning at the same time -- very strange. It's sunny now and all the snow in the city has melted away, but the mountains have a nice fresh dusting.

hyacinth bulbs

Joseph and I are getting ready to clean up the balcony, I can't wait. I also can't wait for the sun to start coming around a bit more on our north facing balcony because this hyacinth is just dying to get warm enough to bloom.

They didn't give Mingus a cone post surgery -- but they failed to predict his utter indifference to the so-called 'bad-tasting' ointment they put on his wounds. By this morning he had completely licked it off and had caused the wound to bleed. Joseph is jogging over to the vet as I type to pick up a cone -- so we will have funny cone photos in the end. (Although part of me thinks Mingus won't rest until he has wrestled the cone off of his neck.)

Have a nice weekend!
