foreshadow

foreshadowa perfect example of the definition. coming of a perfect storm. Saturday, August 3rd, 2013.

Pay close attention to the cloud details through this post. They’re just irreplaceable views!


You can see the rains falling in the patch of darker blue in the center of the screen. Foreshadowing the arrival of a rain sorry. Along with its zealous dark clouds, a perfect picture from natures own creation. 

Storm Foreshadow

Its interesting how we could just watch the rain traveling from one town to another. I am grateful for the opportunity to experience such incredible views. I wanted to edit the image but, getting the full effect of its movements, really required leaving in the school building there.

Notice the gap between Suns past rays, slightly get smaller in the image to follow…

Closer and Closer

Notice the gap between the Suns and building distance grow smaller, before your eyes in these images…

CLOUDS!!!

“Mind the Gap”

Storms Arrival

Storm arrives overhead moving in from the West, trees reacting to storm winds.


As Stroms dark blanket rages, passing over house…

Darkness Pauses

the Darkness Pauses as the Storm prepares to flee

 Just LOOK at Those CLOUDS! 

I am like a big child. I could lye on the grass with LO forever just to marvel at the personalities of the skies that thrive above us. 

 And of course, the big finale however usual an occurrence, however typical it is to have after storm, this just wasn’t expected. The type of ‘rain storm’ we had, just seemed normal, and without clues to its next reveal.

rainbows and promises to be seen …

Always grateful for the opportunity to reveal at the wonders of natures glory.

The possibilities of personal goal achievements are endless! 

Personally, I haven’t had anytime to write a well-thought out post, in a long while (due our present set of unforeseen circumstances, lol: I will posted about that when I can).  Up here in Canada, we’ve ‘Long Weekend’ here, in Ontario. Much excitement activity and company, stealing a day away from my regular routines, lol. It’s been quite the family “fun”… so to speak! (saying THAT with a whole lotta SARCASM! Hey, maybe I should suggest Sarcasm for next weeks Weekly Photo Challenge: Theme | ?! Why Not!? HA! Cuz’ that Joke would be on me for that one! ;)* 

There are however, much more important issues going on in this world around us that I have written briefly in my last worded post. I hope you will take a look at This is For Maile, Pass it On… As the situation there takes priority  over my first world problems here anyday. ours here.

An apology to my regular readers, and hope you will stick around for some good ole writing as soon as I can get back on my stylish feet again. In the meantime, take care of you; you’re in our thoughts daily ;)

Summer Fun Photo Update

A collection of our latest fun in photos (with minimal descriptions I promise!) through the last 2 weeks.

The intention is to inspire ideas for parents. No specific crafts, just fun times. I always find photos from my mommy blogger friends can ignite a creative spark in me, for craft or activity ideas! Enjoy!

1. The (gently used) New Princess Bike! with training wheels.
2 weekends ago, my LO’s2nd hand black, with faded pink wheels and blue lighting bolts across the standing space, birthday gift, and first ever Scooter: WAS STOLEN Yep! From our small town’s local ‘family’ park.

We live in what is reported to be thee ‘safest town in Ontario, Canada‘. Our Scooters cant spend a night forgotten by a young child, without being taken? Saddest part was not that. LO was so elated regardless of scooters ‘condition’ she brought the Scooter inside, parked it right at her bedside, every single night for at least the first 4 nights; kissing it to bed nightly. She only had it a month maybe. I posted flyers, sent notes to Editor in newspaper, even wrote on their Facebook Page; to no avail. Good News: This bike came from the missing scooter. LO was a confident rider, after just the 1st day; and it’s too big for our bedroom!

2. LO infamous for scratching her mosquito bites until they bleed ouch! Has to wear bandaids, until she learns not too! LO met up with her favorite girlfriend from out of town. They were supermodel posers; and had a make-up makeover in the Park–my LO goes no where without her purse. LOL

3. Best spent $7.00 on a Water Snake Sprinkler from Walmart for the backyard. We beat this humidity and add plenty of outdoor fun. Welcomed LOs favorite neighbour for water play!

4. Had too many of these to even count since last I shared here on my Blog! Campfires in my backyard has always been one of the dreams I have had, for my home and children. Even in our ‘house’ we never had one. We are very blessed and try to enjoy a fire a night when we can.

more goofiness around the campfire. you can take the girl away from the clown (being her father) but, you cant take the clown out of the girl! (that part of his inherent personality I am so grateful for)

5. You guys knew I was going to use at least 1 #PopAGraph iTunes App photo right?!
From a visit to Grandma’s.

6. Playing ‘smash the balls’ (ask me later) in the backyard. This is LO ‘keeping her EYE on the BALL‘ I was laughing so hard, no mater what I said, this is what she would do!

7. Went to a new church Free Flea Market and Lunch and fun with the other members. Amazing place. It is now our home church. On the hours walk up hill with the wagon; we stopped multiple times to enjoy God’s provided beauty here. A Squirrel collecting.
