Napanee Conservation Park, Pt. 2

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting the Great Blue Heron who is usually always found at the waterfall at the Napanee Conservation Park during the summer months. I'll have a couple more weeks of photos of him as well! I always take well over 100 of the heron when I see him, knowing that I'll likely be happy with less than 20 of those! :-) Glad it's digital and not the old film cameras or I probably wouldn't shoot that many!

Wow, this week went by fairly fast again. I finished a course on Color Theory and yep, it was a bit boring..not as interesting as I thought it would be! I started Adobe Dreamweaver, which is a website builder, which is supposed to save me time from writing all that HTML and CSS code...The first couple of chapters have been kind of confusing, so I hope to go over those during the holidays, so it becomes a bit clearer! 

Well, I was off on Friday again and spent the day with my friends...Lynn and Melissa...we met for coffee and after Lynn left, Melissa and I spent the rest of the day together! She's a web designer as well, so was giving me lots of advice, which was super awesome! 

Saturday was my birthday and we went out for a nice Italian dinner and my bestest friend since Grade 9 and her hubby came and surprised me by joining us for dinner! Was such a nice dinner/visit. We are going to go visit them in Ottawa after Christmas! I'm so blessed to have such great family and friends!!

Well, I'm almost ready for Xmas, just a couple more things to pick up and then a couple of things to wrap and I'm good to go! I hope to get my haircut too before Christmas, so I might do that tomorrow!

I likely will not post before Christmas, so I'd like to wish all my blog visitors a very Merry Christmas!

Napanee Conservation Park

Welcome Back!

This time I have photos from the Napanee Conservation Park, or the "waterfall park" as we affectionately call it!

We walk there quite often as it's a nice size for our little Zeek to walk!

This time I'm highlighting photos of: a waterlily, a very small turtle, some florals/weeds :-) and a couple of shots of the Great Blue Heron...he's the main reason I take my camera with me! I love the walk, but love it even better if I see him (and I have my camera!)

Well, this week went by quite fast again. I felt better on Monday, thank goodness! I finished my HTML course this week and the final assignment was to create a webpage using only HTML and CSS, so if you want to check it out, you'll find it at:

You'll probably notice that its the same colour scheme as my blog...well, that's because I love a black-background and red and white and grey accents look awesome on it! I can't believe it turned out that well, considering it's all done by hand--no templates! :-)

Not much else is on Friday and did some shopping and errands--the usual...also stopped to visit with Lynn and Dave!

We are having a Christmas potluck lunch at school on Tuesday, Brooke comes home on Wednesday and Thursday will be my last day of school and I'll be off for 2 weeks! Yay! Looking forward to the break, although I will miss school!

Have a great weekend! I'm off to the movies to see Penguins of Madagascar!

More Florals

Welcome Back!

This week I'm adding a few more floral and scenic shots from the Erinsville Lion's Park, near Napanee. These were taken back in July on a hot and sunny day. Zeek liked the park, probably because it was small and not a lot of walking!

This week went by fast...I've been busy with HTML/CSS and its quite challenging...putting it all together and typing all that code and hoping that it works! :-)

I've been fighting a cold the last few days and have felt so tired with a sore throat and headache, but no cold yet..hopefully I'll win and it will go somewhere else! 

I managed to get out yesterday and do some more Christmas shopping...almost done! Keturah and I went to a Christmas craft show in Tyendinaga, which was pretty caught up with old friends too!

Hopefully some homework and do some more packing/cleaning of the basement tonight and tomorrow---if I can stay awake! :-)

Enjoy your weekend!
