    Outdated Pattern


    I did this from a book and then found out that the café does not exist anymore. There also have been modifications over time. Thus the foto and pattern for the drawing in the book must be really old.

    Four Spotted Skimmer


    June 19, 2022. We spotted this beauty in the north Limerick Forest, near Merrickville, along Scotch Line Road. We had a nice 6.7 km hike through the forest, getting to a viewing station overlooking the Wolford Bog. Nice walk, lots of flowers, insects and small animals.

    Expedition Complete


    June 18, 2022. This is the scene at the end of Expedition 7 in No Man’s Sky (at least for me, it’s different for everyone). I was planning to cycle today but after the late night and kind of a tough week I just stayed indoors and finished the expedition.…

    June 17, 2022. It was the Ottawa Redblacks home opener today, and they lost a hard-fought game to Winnipeg. But the team is so much better than it was last year. More crazy weather, with rain at time streaking into the stadium from both directions at once.

    Storm Day


    June 17, 2022. This wasn’t anything like the storm of a few weeks ago, but with everyone on edge there was a long of nervous sky watching. Some good cloud formations, but nothing like what they had in Toronto. More work on Mojolicious today; it’s progressing much more quickly.

    Cat Tunnel


    June 15, 2022. Andrea bought an extension to the cat tunnel, so it’s a full circle now, and the cats have taken to it; here’s Charlemagne enjoying it. Back to more work on Mojolicious today (I know I should be writing, not coding, but I’ve spent so much time writing…

    Base Computer


    June 14, 2022. No Man’s Sky has had a new expedition running over the last few weeks; this is a scene from it. It’s their most difficult expedition to date, and to my mind, the most fun. Some meetings today, and the newsletters feel like they’re going to be extra…

    Grand Finale


    Avery is on her way home from another 12 hour shift at work. She’s tired of hearing the same music she has on shuffle, while she does love it, everything just feels monotonous. Instead of taking her regular route to work, she goes the long way, willingly sitting in traffic …

    Petrie Island


    June 12, 2022. View from our hike on Petrie Island. The park on the Ottawa River was flooded and had a lot of storm damage. Trails were impassible; they were either lakes or blocked by fallen trees. We tried anyways, which was probably a mistake. Our attempt to take a…

    Small Poutine


    June 11, 2022. This was lunch at the Finch Restaurant in Finch, Ontario. This is a normal sized burger and (believe it or not) a small poutine. I didn’t even attempt to finish it, not with another 25km to cycle to wrap up my three-day shakedown ride. Oh, but it…

    Avonmore Oasis


    June 10, 2022. I woke up in my tent at Enchanted Forest Camp near Curran and cycled about 50km to reach Avonmore Oasis, seen here in the evening sun. It was quite a challenging day not the least because I was bitten by a dog, had to cope with rain,…

    Get Yo Pride On! DIY macrame Rainbow??


    Happy Pride Month!! Pride is commemorated in June, since that was the month when the Stonewall Riots occurred. For those who aren’t as familiar, the Stonewall Riots were protests that took place in 1969 in the US, that helped ignite gay rights in America. The rainbow also has cultural significance …

    Lucky Number 4


    PHEW, week 4! Weekly rating: 8/10 for sure! Maybe even a 9.
    This week I got to dive into Video work. I love taking videos when I go out and do anything so I was very excited to be able to get a jump onto this week assignments. Because I …

    With the craziness of this world, work and everything in between, there are times where we need to step back and appreciate ourselves. At the beginning of every day and end of every night, the only person who …

    A&V Makes Magic


    Movie Scene: Fight Club – Do not fuck with us

    I chose a scene from Fight Club given I have never seen the movie and have heard its quite the iconic one. I broke down my reviews in the three ways I was instructed.

    Look: The character with his face …

  19. Downes



    June 9, 2022. Spent the morning getting set up (and recording a video of same, which should be up soon on my YouTube page). My intent is to be out bikepacking for three days, starting today (so I’m uploading this photo early).

    New Tunnel


    June 7, 2022. The cats have a new place to fight over. Andrea bought them this tunnel and they took to it like cats and small containers. Some meetings today, a bit more newsletter work, and a repair to gRSShopper to make sure the newsletter is send automatically.
