Catch the Moment 2018 ~ Week 34

This week started out with smoke filling the air, from the rampant wildfires to the East and North of us. These fires seem more and more common each year, and honestly, it just weighs on me so much thinking about the potential implications of what this could mean for our future. The air quality index was anywhere from 190 – 220, rated worse than the air in some of the world’s most polluted cities, like Beijing. Headlines read Breathing Seattleā€™s air right now is like smoking 7 cigarettes.

Photos showing the thickness of the smoke were unreal. I just don’t ever want this to be our new normal. It’s so sad and scary.

Luckily, we got some rain, things calmed down some, and the air quality improved. Best of all, we got some awesome visitors, and had some awesome celebrations! So the week improved greatly during the last half! Here are the photos ~

Mon, Aug 20 ~ the skies turned yellow from the smoke and the sun and its reflection look really red. It was eerie.

Luckily, these two cute fellas were there to entertain me and take my mind off the smoke-pocalypse.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 22

It was a mix of busy and relaxed this week! Mostly just the usual ups and downs of everyday life, with a few unexpected events (party and sports!), a tiny scare from our tiniest pet, and some calm, rainy days spent reading and playing video games. Joe has been recovering from his really nasty cold virus he’s been fighting, and we all can’t wait until he’s better. Homer and I got in some play time, and some relaxation time, and even some writing time, for both of us!

And now, onto the photos ~

Mon, May 28 ~ Well first of all, I hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day with their families. I saw Homer’s Memorial Day booklet at the end of the day. They’d done it in school on Friday, and this was the last page. “Normal stuff.” He cracks me up! He turned out to be exactly right, too, he spent the majority of the day playing video games while Joe and I took turns napping, reading, or watching tv. A nice, quiet day.

2018 Catch the Moment – Week 8

This week features mostly animals! Which is fitting, because I’m pretty sure it was International Love Your Pet Day or something? I don’t know. I saw some hashtags, but I don’t know which day it was. So I got some shots of pets, some selfies, and I even got to try something new with my Canon this week during a special photo shoot. Yay! Here are the photos…

050 | Mon, Feb 19 ~ It was really amazing watching Tess Virtue and Scott Moir win the gold for Ice Dancing! Yay Canada! They did such a great job.
