Spark the Season - Day 27 - Favourite Holiday Food

Sunday, December 28, 2014

Turkey is my favourite festive food and it doesn't have any carbs in it either so it's a perfect food for my plan.

I didn't cook a turkey this year -- this photo was taken a few years ago when we lived in Ecuador.


Spark the Season - Day 26 - Gift

Friday, December 26, 2014

This present is actually a display at Butchart Gardens in the gift shop window -- it glows because it is lit from within and actually changes from pink to green and back again.

    In the winter the Butchart Gardens are lit up with with coloured lights and tableaus depicting scenes from the 12 Days of Christmas -- we didn't go and see them all this year -- It's nice to have a season's pass because you don't have to spend about 5 hours to justify your visit. Sometimes we just go out for an hour or so and breathe the lovely clean air.

Spark the Season - Day 25 - Gratitude

Friday, December 26, 2014

There are so many things that I am grateful for that it would take a book to list them all but since this is a photoblog I will choose one thing that is particularly photogenic and that is the city I live in. When we moved back to Canada from Ecuador we got to choose the city to live in and since neither of our kids were living in the country at that time we chose on the basis of beauty and climate.

It's on the sea:

It's filled with beautiful gardens:

And there is beautiful wildlife in the parks

The climate is temperate with only 4 months of possible frost or snow -- some years we don't get any. It's a beautiful city that tourists flock to and we get to live here all year long -- for that I am grateful.

I posted the latest picture of my family on Day 12 so today I am posting an old picture of my kids and their cousins

And here is a picture of my husband with our two kids and one of our daughters-in-law, the other daughter-in-law had to work that day -- the picture was taken in Banff.
