Winter’s Here

It’s a lazy day. This is one of my laziest posts and laziest photos ever. I couldn’t even be bothered to go outside, so I shot this through my living room window. We were told that the weather would be warming up and to expect rain. I wanted to capture this scene before all the…

New Years Eve Take Away

Once upon a time, our friends thought it would be a good idea to get some Chinese take out on New Years Eve. I’m talking about the Canadian version of Chinese food such as fried rice and chicken balls with that red sauce. We thought we were smart by placing an order several hours in…
