Joining in again today with Amy at her blog, Love Made My Home and her Five on Friday photo linky party.
Just like last week, I have chosen five pics from my phone to share with you today. I tend to use my phone's camera much more often during the week, capturing the little "daily" details that happen during every day life. I tend to save my "big" camera for weekend outings and events where I take multiple shots of the "action." I try to dump my camera photos onto my computer's hard drive each weekend so that my phone stays clutter-free and I never lose any precious photos by accident!
Here are my favourite five from tonight's photo"dump":
Number One: This week's manicure. I went subtle this week opting for some "bridal" colours that my manicurist was dying to try out. It's mostly just some glitter on four fingers and some daisy-shaped sparkles on my index finger only. Pretty, huh?
(The girls in my kindergarten class ADORED it!)
Number Two: Doing some summery sewing. I've been seeing so many bloggers making beautiful, flowery quilt tops that I decided I HAD to join in. The toughest part is always picking the fabrics - making them match, or balancing the colours. But not this time. I simply cut squares out the fabrics I liked best, whether they went together or not! The way I figured, flowers always look good mixed together in my garden, why can't it be the same way on a quilt!?
Number Three: Spring has finally arrived in my part of Canada. That temperature says it all!
Number Four: One of the main reasons we decided to get a dog was to encourage our family to get out more, enjoy the natural spaces around us and to get some much needed exercise. So this past weekend, hubby invested in a season's pass to all the conservation areas surrounding our home. After looking into it, we realized we could walk once a week for the next 20 weeks and never see the same tree, rock or root.
We headed out on a perfectly sunny Sunday with the pooch and a picnic and did our first 3km hike. The kids and the dog loved it! This weekend promises perfect hiking weather again, so we will be off and trekking once again!
Number Five: Victoria Sponge.
I am baker. A quite experienced and comprehensive baker. However, I have to admit, I had never made a traditional Victoria Sponge cake. Until now. I made it a priority this past week and used this Mary Berry recipe.
And it was devine!!
I guess I'll be permanently adding this one to my repertoire!
Thanks for all of your lovely comments on my previous posts. I try to reply to them all as soon as I can.
I'll be back early next week with another post. Salisbury Cathedral or more pics of the hiking trip?
Or who knows what we might get up to this weekend??
Maybe I'll share that here, too!
Hugs to all,
