waskesiu (part two)

IMG_1.jpg IMG_2.jpgIMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_8.jpgIMG_10.jpg IMG_9.jpgThe last two days that my husband and I spent on our vacation in Waskesiu were filled with sun, sun, a little rain, and more sun. While we do prefer rain and grey days, have two of the former and mostly two of the latter felt like a nice dichotomy. It was really interesting taking some pictures in gloomy weather, and the next day taking photographs of the same sites in blue skies. It’s a great reminder of how weather can really set the mood when you are photographing outdoors. I noticed that certain shots and angles don’t always work when the sun is glaring off of certain objects, while seeing the reflection of it in others makes for a really beautiful shot. Anyway, enough of yet another photography lesson.

On the last morning of our trip we parked our vehicle in front of a hotel and took Truman for one last long walk. Neither of us wanted to go back, especially since later that afternoon we had planned to meet our contractor at our property and plan out where everything was going, and the next day was to be our appointment at the bank where we would be applying for our new mortgage. We did have a really great discussion on how we do need to take more trips. In the last four years we had gone on less than five, and all except one were within Canada. Instead of spending money on vacations we spent it on renovations. That worked really well for us as a couple, although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. However, now that our house has sold and the renovations made us our money, I sort of feel like being selfish and spending our hard earned money on ourselves. If only for a little while. My mum always says that youth is wasted on the young. So why not be young and dumb again? Well, young and cautious and well-traveled. ;-)))

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift. My little lovebug doesn't always want me for naps lately, but when she does, it makes me feel warm, loved, and needed. Also, look at her hand tucked inside of my shirt. I'm melting.
