Sun.Nov.03.2013. Timechange again! Arg! When will this be phased out?

So we jump straight from my first ever footpic to my latest one. There’s a big block of time in there, but after a lovely little motivational chat with one of the only bloggers I follow, I decided to follow her advice and leave my chronological OCD behind! Thanks Carolyn! (I’ll figure out how to link you on this later)

Timechanges are one of my personal pet peeves! Is the supposed benefit really worth the hassle and confusion…and possible car accidents? I am in the Hell No camp…even though I think I get to sleep in an hour longer at this end of it. That doesn’t make up for it to me. Saskatchewan has the way if it. No messing with the clocks!

Also featured….new backyard brickwork! The landlords didn’t put in the mini garden plots under the windows that I’d been advocating, but they do have to think long term. Not every tenant will be hoping to plant a pretty potager herb garden. Still, it was loads of fun watching all the steps of construction with my girls!

It’s not one of my most inspired shots, but it seemed… timely.
Har har har!


Thurs.June.23.2011. Went clover gazing in Winnipeg

This was my first official footpic, though I didn’t realize it had become a “thing” until halfway through the trip. Usually I’d have passed off my camera asking someone else to take over photographer duties so that I too could be in a couple shots. That wasn’t much of an option on this trip. And the footpic was born! (for me at least =p )

This shot in particular was a good spot in a hard day. I’m a clover gazer, always trying ot find another 4 leaf clover to add to my collection while weeding! Without applying a lot of what footpics have come to mean to me, I just wanted to remember it. To that end, it’s worked out nicely. I’ve kept at it for over a year now, taking footpics Nearly everyday.

Each one tells a story about that day but it also says a simple I Am Here! I am noticing the good things around me and if none find me I am damn well making them on my own! It’s been a really motivating focus in my life. Even in hard times there are still roses to stop and smell…and stand near.
