“These are the soul’s changes, I don’t believe in ageing.  I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun.  Hence my optimism.”  Virginia Woolf

Today was quite the day.  I received a message from my sister last night indicating that she was flying in to Vancouver.   I drove with my 2 year old Grand Daughter the 1 hour in to the city to the airport to connect with her and have a visit before she flew on to where she lives.  I checked to make sure her flight was on time . . . it landed 15 minutes late but it did land.  I called the hotel to see if she had checked in . . . they said they were expecting her.  However she never arrived.  I finally drove to a local Mall where Baby Girl and I did some window shopping, and had a bite to eat.  This photo is taken with my iPad while we were on our way back home, stopped in heavy traffic at a stop light.  It took us almost two hours to get home in heavy rain and traffic.  The amazing thing is . . . she did so well!  We sang songs, and called over bluetooth and talked with Papa G.  It was quite an enjoyable ride considering!  

Now – for the crazy part.

I arrived home in time to get her bathed and down for the night.  All the while I was worrying about why my sister had not arrived . . . it just didn’t make sense.  Did she miss her flight?  Was there an issue with the Hurricane back east?  So, I went back to the message she had sent me on the 29th and discovered . . . that I was the dunce . . . If I had read the entire message . . . it said . . . “I am leaving tomorrow (October 30th) and arriving on October 31st.”  (She was flying in from Bali via Hong Kong)  I guess I saw the word “tomorrow” and went no further!  Urg!  My Bad!!  

Oh Well . . . tomorrow is another day!

The little one is staying on with Ya Ya and Papa G here in Canada while Mommy flies home to California.  (We’ll be driving her back to California in a  weeks time)  We dropped Mommy at the airport in Bellingham this  morning, then went for breakfast at Shari’s Restaurant.  The food was practically inedible . . . but we hung out for a bit waiting for Cost Co to open.  We were in a nice spacious corner booth, so she had lots of room to play and jump and “attack”! I shot this with my iPad, then processed it in Snapseed.  Gotta love these apps!  I love this picture because it really epitomizes my relationship with her.  We adore each other!  She misses Mommy, but she loves her Ya Ya!  

Nuff said!

I set my D7000 on timer and let it shoot away.  This was the best of the bunch, as I was heading off to the airport to pick up my sister who is flying in from Whitehorse, Yukon.  I love the timer feature on my camera(s).  It makes doing this 365 so much easier.  My only challenge is focusing.  To do a shot like this I have to guess where my focus is and hope that it turns out sharp, not blurry.  I was trying for the panning effect in the background as I was rounding a corner at the time.  And it looks like I was fairly successful with my focus this time.  I did process it a bit in LR4 and Topaz Adjust.
