It is only the second week of me attempting to participate in You Capture and I already thought I might not be able to make it. We don't have a lot of red in our house but amazingly enough, I found some if I looked hard enough.


I painted this for Jack when he was about 4 or 5. He loved trucks when he was younger and this is Dumpy, a character from a book he loved at that age.

I thought this accountant with all her creativity housed in her left pinkie toenail had done pretty good. The lady at the framing store, however, had a different opinion.

She asked if Jack had painted it.

In hindsight, I kind of see her point.


Jack's curtains. I am almost positive he will be asking to replace these any day now. They were perfect for him when he was little though.


The blanket that we snuggle under every morning when we call Jay to say good morning. It reminds me of my Auntie Vicki. It was a wedding gift from her and I love it still.


The nets that adorn our living room. Our Kamo is a sports addict and spends many an hour playing hockey and soccer with himself.

He is now asking when he can play hockey. Gulp.

My Addiction

And the book I am currently reading awaiting my 3rd cup of tea for the day. Me and the library are like this. Reading is one of my favourite pastimes.

I love your photography, Kami! It just keeps getting better and better! I really love the pic of your book and tea, and your snuggle blanket. I try to capture stuff like that and fail. Miserably.
