Fridaaaaay!… Aah

I needed to pause for beauty today.

This fits the bill.

Taken at the 2016 Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa last May, I titled it Call the Fire Brigade!

Since Canada is celebrating its 150th this year, I’m expecting to be gobsmacked at the festival.

If you’ve never been, go.

Walk your kicks off.

Get some great clicks.

Watch Tweeters and Instagrammers stretched out on their bellies to get the perfect angle.

Nosh on the sidewalk, the grass.

Hang.

It runs from May 12-22. Here’s a link. Canadian Tulip Festival

Here be Friday.

Take a pause for beauty.

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…

Fridaaaaay!… Star Light, Star Bright

All the stars I see tonight!

I can’t remember where I picked up the string star, but the shiny, tin stars are from Lee Valley Tools Ltd. We have the tin tinsel, too. Normally, the stars go on the tree, but not this year. I attached them to the fireplace screen for a little extra fireplace bling.

This close shot taken yesterday got a little bokeh filter action from #acolorstory . Heh.

Here be Friday.

Listening to Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings on Spotify singing Please Come Home for Christmas. That’s how we’re rollin’ on the 2nd Friday in December.

Here comes Ms. Etta James.

I’m in a mood.

And that is my only little tale to tell today, for I have pages of story to write before I sleep meet you in the bar in 3…2…1… If you get there before I do, I’ll have a Grey Goose martini. Just a suggestion.
