That's it for Red

Out goes August (and red with it) and now onto September...what will the colour be?

I have added to the red sprouts - which I just love!!

And I found some yellow squares that somehow were missed during what ever that month was.

I have worked on some scrap booking pages for gifts (this is what I give my kids for gifts scrap-book-ready-pages of their own families). In this case I re-purposed a set of photos that I had given to MY mother for Christmas in 1979. These had been set into one of those collection frames in a very inexpensive frame and was looking very shabby. I took the pics and tossed the old frame. These pictures are from a pack horse trip my kids, and along with my sister's family, into Willmore Wilderness Park.

I have done a bit of house cleaning, or at least washed out a few kitchen cupboards and washed the floor with my new handy squirt 'n mop thingy. No one needs to see a picture of my new mop!

I took apart my bird feeders and gave them a thorough cleaning, including removing the "windows" and washing those in the kitchen sink. All set for another season of keeping my little bbb's feed for a long cold Canadian winter. I only feed shelled sunflowers to maximize their time and energy at the feeder, and they go through a bag of seed every 2-3 weeks.

I had the best treat last night. This weekend in Edmonton is the 19th Annual Symphony Under the Sky. Five performances over four days of the most beautiful music in the most beautiful setting in Edmonton. Last night's featured guest artist, with our incredible Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, was Ellis Hall and his tribute to Ray Charles performance. He rocked the joint!

I will be back to the park for the final performance this afternoon....then I will be in a very relaxed and refreshed back to work mode for Tuesday.

Love and hugs to all


  1. Love your red and yellow sprouts!
    Cool pictures, Kathy.
    An evening of beautiful music ... I'm sure it was wonderful.

  2. I can't wait to see how the "sprouts" turn out! I also can't wait to see what next months color will be. It is never what I think it might be.... always a soscrappy surprise!
