Photo Loaded!

Okay, lots of photos in this post (hence the title).  😉

There have been a few days where I promised to upload but hadn’t yet, so here are photos for those days plus today.  🙂

Not much to say here.  🙂  Wee girlie had a treat, and is just super cute.

Here is the wee girlie doing the “I got a new hat” happy dance.

Sandy, Rosalie, and Paul – She absolutely LOVES her new hat, and has worn it every single day since it arrived.  It is sooo cute, and just looks absolutely adorable on her.  Thanks so very much!  It’s awesome!

Happy Dance!

Sandy is an accomplished artisan here in Saskatchewan.  If you’d like a hand-felted one of a kind beret for your little one, you can drop her a line at sgcompton at sasktel dot net (obviously remove the spaces and replace the at with @ and the dot with .).  Her work is outstanding.  The hats are perfect in the rain (nothing gets through them) and are really good to throw on your little one after swimming too.  Keeps them warm even with wet hair.  Seriously, I can’t rave about Sandy’s work any more than I do.  Really, really awesome stuff!

So, yesterday a wonderful astronomical event took place…  and once again, we here in Saskatoon, totally missed out.  The last several events listed as “not to be missed” have been missed here due to cloud cover.  Totally not cool.

Yesterday, for the first time in twenty years, the sun and moon rose and set at the exact same time.  This causes an amazing effect which completely lights up the sky, due to the way the light reflects from one, off the other.  Well.  As I said.  Couldn’t see it.  Clouds.

So here’s a picture of some horses.  Played with it a little in iphoto in an attempt to have it look as if I’d lifted it from an old western.  Considering the limited scope of iphoto, I think I came close.  😉

The Not-so-Old West.

And here are a couple shots of the sunset.  That did manage to pierce the cloud cover for about 90 seconds.  Enough time to focus in the opposite direction to snap a couple shots.

The sunset.

Sunset (shot two).

Shaun, I know you were really looking forward to seeing pictures of the aforementioned astronomical event.  Sorry.  😦

Damon was sick today… which means I didn’t have time for much beyond the essentials.  So, here’s a quick night sky shot for you.  Camera’s interpret the dark in such interesting ways.  From time to time I enjoy pointing off into space and seeing what happens.  Tonight’s photograph is completely unedited…  not cropped, colour adjusted, or altered in any way.  It’s just the sky, outside my home, as the camera sees it.  🙂

Night all.  Be good to one another.
