Moving on

So we're moving this week, meaning this view is on its last few days. 

Here's hoping the new place has something comparable...

Some of our books, waiting for their shelves.

Hauled in backpacks rather that boxes.  Much easier on the body that way.

It's Been a While...

... Since someone ignored the private parking, members only, will be towed signs all around our parking stall.

Non stormy skies

As we were driving to the WEM (West Edmonton Mall), the skies were interesting enough to try and capture; based on past experience, I waited until it was on my side and lowered the window instead of trying to take it through the windshield. This got me a nice, tense "please don't drop the phone" from the back.

It's the little things that make life fun :D

Challenge Accepted

There is a parking lot were people constantly drive over the concrete framed grassy areas.  The ground gets torn up and signs get knocked down.  This summer, the lot owners fixed the damage, then placed boulders right at the corners that people drive over.  They are highly visible.  When we first saw them, I thought it was a grand idea. After all, who would be stupid enough to ram a boulder with their vehicle?

I underestimated people, I guess.  Apparently, some view it as a challenge or something.  This boulder has been pushed several feet from where it was installed, and there are tire tracks where it used to be.

Oh how the mighty have fallen...

Roast coffee house used to be the pinnacle of coffee houses; rife with exotic drinks, they also offered various appetizers ranging from goat cheese and basil sun-dried tomatoes to a charcutery plate with wonderful amuse-bouches to try out.

 Today, due to a change in management, approach or budget (I honestly don't know) they have reduced themselves to a handful of drinks, no longer offer some of the better drinks still listed on their menu board and are even-odds to not having the ingredients required to make the most basic of drinks.

At least they're still expensive....


Silly habits

So I haven't taken my DSLR out in a while. The main reason is that cell phone cameras are getting better at rendering light and details. This was taken as I was crossing a street, so generally pointed skyward while I looked where I was going so as to not trip :P

My favorite meeting room

You know, I don't even feel guilty about taking shots every time I get in here.
