...a lot like Christmas?

.....it's kind of freakishly sunny and nice here for almost-December...on sunday, we went out to Stanley park to feed the swans, it was so nice...


...and I think it's our new fave thing to do...we feed them bread...they literally swarm you, and the huge swans waddle up out of the water and take the bread right from you hand!! Crazy..so cool...(we did this on our wedding day, also..pics soon! he he) After feeding them, we stopped at the beach on the way home and sat in the sun for a bit...found a crab leg...took a picture of my fave granny purse, cuz I was fidget-ey...

...What else? Oh! Music!
I need to share this guy with you....

...Raine Maida...who may not be known to American readers, but in Canada he is a music icon...Anyone heard of Our Lady Peace? He was their front man...now he's gone solo....I think he's married to Chantal Kreviazuk...buddy raised $20,000 to build a school for kids in third world countries by playing for free on the sidewalk...he seriously rocks it. All the instruments on his new album are Acoustic..(sigh) Go to his myspace to take a listen, his new song is "Yellow Brick Road" rocks..."Earthless" and "China Doll" are my faves from the album, though...totally worth a listen if he's new to you...=)

Also, Jewel's "Good Day" is my new fave...I listen to it on repeat all day at work..lol...You can hear it on her myspace, too...Love her. Love her poetry and love her lyrics.

....Hope everyone is having a great day! I finally waded through piles of e-mails..thanks for all the love, again...=) And caught up on facebook messages...and hopefully might even have a chance to check out the wedding pictures I can share (from my camera and Z's camera) soon..literally, I've looked at them a few times, but have had no time to sit and ooh and ahh...soon! yay!

That is freaky that we both went to the beach and like scrabble! Looks like you had a fun time! That purse is super cute. Thanks for introducing that amazing artist! I love hearing when people use their talents to help others.

Swans. I love them...they scare the crap out of my husband. One of his friend's family owns a farm. When Bryan was about 10 years old, their pet swan on the farm attacked him. Snapped him right in the crotch! LOL. Can't wait to see your wedding pics! :0)

Michelle said...
