Beach Days

Beach days with DJ and the kids. We did lots of lounging, lazing, snacking and beach things like running around, skipping rocks and scavenging for things. We even spotted a life guard and watched him take off his shirt (slow motion and everything) to save his runaway boat. Excite!

Onyx Star

I was digging around for matboard and found these gems stowed away in a box. High school photography; I'm pretty sure these weren't taken for an assignment, but I used school supplies anyway. Sorry Mrs. HL!

Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Maker (WAF-300)

I got a new waffle maker! 
The other one that I had, the one Rich got me for my birthday a couple years back (Cuisinart WAF-100) still works, but due to a "metal utensil vs. non-stick coating" incident that somebody had, it was damaged and needed to be replaced. Unfortunately it has been discontinued and since the plates aren't removable, buying them separately from the machine was out of the question. 

After doing some research and lots of browsing, I chose the WAF-300 model.

Garage Sale Pick Ups

For the past few years I've been wanting to go garage sale hunting and this past month finally did. Why I haven't done this sooner, is beyond me. One day I took a sunny stroll through my neighborhood and hit up 5 houses. It was a good day!

Back To Back: Dragon Legend

During the month of June, I had the privilege of dining at Dragon Legend twice. Eating out two days in a row is rare for me, but eating buffet style two days in a row just never happens. Luckily Dragon Legend, a Chinese/fusion restaurant (if you couldn't tell from it's name) has good food and lots of it!

Roaming The Bluffs, Part 2

Stumbling our way back to the top of the bluff wasn't as treacherous as I had thought it would be. Actually, it was kind of nice!

Roaming The Bluffs, Part 1

I've lived in the city of Toronto for over 27 years and this was my first time visiting The Scarborough Bluffs. Okay, so maybe I visited when I was wee small, but I can't recall any of it. Rich and I arrived in the afternoon, not knowing what to expect. But after driving around a little, impressed by the beautiful houses and finally settling on a place to park, we were presently surprised!

Scarborough all of a sudden turned into something completely different.

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.
