Loving Life after 50

The Cat’s Meow

Winter is holding firm here in the frozen tundra we call Canada ( yes let’s reinforce all the stereotypes right??) Seriously though, I think winter is here for a while longer. On a positive note the days are getting longer but as the days get longer it is becoming difficult to gauge the sunlight and optimum place to take pictures. ( remember I take my pics in the morning before work, in about three minutes, best one can do in these temperatures) I noticed some strange shading in the spots where the sun has normally been my friend so it begins another round of photo testing to see where I can get the best lighting.
So in honour of cupcakes sales yesterday I thought it was fitting to dress appropriately so my cat sweater and leopard booties of course.  My love of pattern mixing dictated some plaid and polka dots of course.  My “girl guide” selling cookies cup cakes work outfit.  ( bonus with only a few cupcakes left to sell they closed the office due to water issues so I could guilt free bring a few home with me.  It was a great day and I raised in total $120.00 for the Humane Society. Small amount overall but just from me baking cupcakes I thought it as pretty good, maybe next year I can get a whole team of people involved.
Did you buy a cupcake????
