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. ;-)))

  1. It is nice to know someone else out there likes rain and grey days!

  2. What a beautiful place on earth…

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
