Gobble Gobble… Mmmmm in oil


Picture taken on my iPhone 4, edited on PicMonkey

Dear Readers,

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada, October 13, 2014.  I have the pleasure of having — for the first time — wild Turkey cooked in oil. My loving mother and father-in-law live in the country and this is how they cook their turkey!  At first I thought this was going to taste awful but to my delight it was freaking amazing! The most tender turkey I have ever eaten, goes to show you everything taste better when cooked in oil.

It was made personally as my brother-in-law hunted and got this turkey himself.  I feel so authentic this year *giggles

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!



Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance [Entry XVIII]

Good day dear readers,

The Daily Post had this for the weekly photo challenge:


Show us what endurance means to you. Is it that high-school diploma, beads of sweat earned on a long run, a treasured family heirloom, or something else entirely?


Here is my interpretation of “endurance”, no joke just my real life.

Until next time photographers,


Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective [Entry XVII]

Dear Readers,

It’s been a long time since my last Blog Post! I’ve been going through a lot of “stuff” (such is life) but now things have settled down and I am able to focus again on my writing, photography and of course my Blog!

Today’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post is: RELIC


The picture is supposed to induce the image of “relic” or its presence. For me I choose an artifact that represents something significant for me.  

I am a New Age Spiritualist. I also practice Santería. An Orisha that is close and dear to me is Eleguá. He is associated with “opening the ways”, or crossroads. Often depicted as a child, he is playful, and both a trickster and a strategist amongst the divinities. When prayed to he helps people overcome various problems.

This photograph is in respect to this special deity.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective [Entry XVI]

Hello Everyone!

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is: Perspective. The same image but taken in different lights, angles, positions or perspectives. A novel idea!

My fiancée and I went to a quant little pub/restaurant called Central Hotel The Red Door Lounge in Moose Creek. I enjoyed taking the picture of this rustic building and they are apparently famous for their wings – yum!
