Things that Shock, Rock or Just Plain Suck..


I'm desperate for spring, and it's snowing again.
This orchid branch I bought for a photo shoot perked me up...
..till I had to leave it at their house.
That gets a big Suck!


This is Deep Cove - I love this small village/town in North Vancouver - this place is a Rock!
We were here on the weekend shooting a spectacular home on the ocean.
We went to shoot the en suite bathroom and in the giant mirror, above the his and her sinks, coming through the glass...can you even guess!!??  A TV.  Yes, a television was in the mirror - just the image - no frame or sign of the TV if it wasn't turned on. 
This brought on a mixture of emotions.  At first, Shock! .. and a tiny bit of a 'this sucks' too - for us anyway!

What also sucks is that TV is highlighted in yellow in this paragraph, and I can't make it go away.


My new favourite store found in Deep Cove - Room 6
Big Rock!


Carrot chips..


SUCK!
I've tried them three ways and they really really really suck.


My little nephew turned one.
 These happy cake fingers Rock!


And...my girl is in her first 'parent free' swim class. 
That Rocks!
And now, as I was just reviewing my post, I noticed I have 666 followers!!!
Sweet Peter Paul and Mary! 
Can someone/anyone just please follow me to get that number off my site!

I went to Deep Cove in the mid seventies...it was sleepy and quaint...loved it....
BTW the sweet solo swimmer is looking very water ready!

Deep Cove looks so inviting! :] I love the Vancouver area, I'd love to take some time to explore the area.

The 667 is from Romania! I hope you'll have a nice day!

Lady Grey said...

ha ha, you're too funny!
I don't think I'd want a tv in my bathroom.... although a vanishing mirror screen is rather incredible!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

Oh thank heavens you are now at 667. I would have to follow you twice to help you. All I can say is I think time will help your issues (well maybe not the TV in the mirror one, or the yellow in the TV word one, but the snow one at least). Hang in there.

One of the things I miss most about living on the north shore is the cove - what a great place to go kayaking in the summer! Seattle is fabulous but Vancouver has a lot that we don't...
Have a great day my friend - are you snowed in as well?

Room 6 is one of my all time favorite stores- that combined with a trip to Honey's for donuts and coffee then a quick stop at the park make a perfect day!

Sorry, I can't help you there. I've been following for a long time! I'm sure the number will change soon. Carla

Try going back to post editor, and click on abc with the checkmark (spell check) to turn it back off. My guess is that it was left on (it doesn't clear automatically.)

Natasha said...

Your post made me giggle, you're hilarious! Congrats to your little swimmer :) I hope to get to Van again one day and have more time to explore!

Iniyaal said...

I too tried making carrot chips a couple of years back.. Mine were a bigger disaster than yours (I am telling this based on the pic here).. There will be a receipe or tip somewhere that will turn out lucky :)

c and d said...

tell me you went to get homemade donuts! i know they're not baked, but if my memory serves, from a few years back, they were pretty damn good.
and room 6, have been dying to go! heard about it, seen pictures and know i'd love it.

Brenda Kula said...

I'm just dying here without some blooms. Spring, we need you badly!

hatjunkie said...

I'd follow you twice if I could. I had a wholesale order that was $666. I felt like discounting them just to change it.

Rosie said...

...that # does suck...
...that you would try "carrot" chips not once, but THREE times IS a shocker!
...and to know you...definitely falls into the "R*O*C*K" category !
...........Sweet post...xoxo...Rosie

My first visit.
I live in Maine and we have blueberries growing wild on the roads. I saw blueberries thought you were in Maine. You live in a spot I almost moved to.
I had friends there and they took me to so many places, we flew to calgary. I fell in love with British Columbia. yvonne

Robin Larkspur said...

Wonderful blog, just found you. I had already signed onto follow before I read you had 666 followers. Dont know if anyone signed on before me, but hopefully you are now safe and secure!! LOL! Looking forward to following.... Robin.

pollydove said...

heather, you are too funny! thankfully you are now at 693 followers. (that happened fast.)

i am guessing that the TV is highlighted because you hit spell check and since the blog police probably want you to put a period after the T and the V, the yellow will remain until you do! (i don't spell check anymore for that very reason!)

Wendy said...

Heather, we are neighbours! We are just up the street in Country Woods. I'm pretty sure I was eating your blueberries this summer (super delicious!) through Lin and Rod. As soon as my email is up and running I'll be sure to follow you as well. Although I see that others have managed to fix your number problem, thank goodness! :-)

I think you're well over the 666 followers, but just in case I'm now formally following you (have been privately web stalking for a while now!)I love reading your blog and remembering the fabulous time hubby and I had in Vancouver many moons ago. Oh and am big time green with greenhouse envy!!
