Autumn Picnic At Edwards Gardens


Before all this cold and snowy weather arrived, Rich and I picnicked at Edward's Gardens. Technically there is no picnicking allowed, but we're rebels like that. Or more like it was Wednesday afternoon and the only people there were a handful of senior citizens, a couple of canoodling couples (possibly, most likely married to other people), a photographer and his clients and a random shirtless man, who was creepily watching people...namely the canoodling couples.


It was one of the warmer autumn days, one that was ideal for taking in the colourful scenery and taking long walks without becoming a sweaty unsightly mess. I brought my camera with me, so take a peek at all the prettiness in this botanical garden!

Look Who's Better!


Tank's fur is growing back in full strength and she's back to her cuddly and sassy self. After about two months her auto-immune system going overboard on her fur follicles, causing some majorly unappealing and irritating hair-loss, her body is finally balancing out. No more disabling cone to wear, which means more running around like a loonatic and no more hand feeding!

Thanks for everybody's concern, well wishes and positive energy.
Having my little mishka back was all I wanted for Christmas. xo

Honey Walnut Green Beans (& rabbit watching)

This is one of my new favourite ways to prepare green beans. I grew a bit bored with the same old garlic recipe, so when I tried this subtly sweet and totally nutty variation I fell in love. It was a welcomed change and so, so yummy!

While I was prepping dinner, the neighborhood bunny decided to graze on the grass near the mudroom doors. I've been watching it grow from when it was a wee little thing. I snapped some photos.

Lola & The Incident

Thanksgiving 2014

Last minute turkey fests are always fun. My family didn't decide to have Thanksgiving dinner until one and a half days before we actually wanted to have it. Since I'm the one who cooks the holiday meal, I thew together a menu and off we went to buy everything we needed, including our 79¢/lb bird.

Cat Sitting

Lola is Rich's brother's family's gorgeous year old cat who needed to be looked after while the rest of her human family vacationed. Tank chose a brand new toy squirrel and I stuffed it with cat nip as a welcome gift. Best friends, duh. There was a time last winter where they could have met, but Tank being the "shy" and fiercely territorial feline she is, probably would have hissed and howled and caused a scene. 

Oh, and we weren't even at my house.

About

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!

I currently shoot with a Canon 550D. I've shot with a Canon 500D as well as a Canon Pro1 before I drowned one and dropped the other. I also own a little Nikon P5100.
