Taking A Great Deal Of Effort To Become A Couch Potato

 Mudding and sanding requires hydration breaks.


I did the priming and thought it looked fabulous.
But soon found out this would not be the look he was going for!


Seems like a whole lot of work to sit around and watch movies...time will tell if it is worth it!

Summer Cooking

Breakfast or Lunch, Quiche is the answer.
One with the crust and one without. Seasonal fruit added and we are ready for company. Quiche is great hot, warm or cold so we are flexible. Family just needs to get here before we eat it all up!

Maligne Lake Jasper National Park

So many spectacular views of this peaceful gem hidden amongst Douglas Fir. Pallisade Mountains frame glacier waters.
Maligne Lake was named by Father Pierre-Jean De Smet (1801–1873) and possibly French Fur Traders to describe the french word "malignant" or "wicked," due to turbulent, confluent flow to the Athabaska River. Maligne River flows into and out of the Lake from North and South ends.

Maligne Lake is approximately 22.5 km (14.0 mi) long and is 97 m (318 ft) at its deepest point, in the south end of the lake. It averages 35 m (115 ft) in depth.

Easy to see why Settlers decided to stay in the area. Views are breath taking and well worth the winding 44km drive south of Jasper town.

Happy Canada Day!

Another school year over. 2015 included teaching/therapy for a special needs school with Junior High students and began a Masters of Counseling Psychology Degree with Yorkville University. The year  included a move back to Okotoks, and a new dog named Braxton. In spring this photo was taken while touring the NW coast of California.
