Loving Life after 50

Black and white, Lace and Converse

Joe Fresh Lace skirt,  and black converse
Hello summer, the temperature hit 26 today ( 84F) a perfect day. ( and over 30C/92F in the back yard). I thought today called for a white lace skirt (Joe Fresh) and my white denim jacket (Old Navy) and adding a black cami ( H&M) seemed the right touch. After debating shoes in my own head for tem minutes I opted for Black converse, seriously I did not just wear these to go to work I wore them at work… such a rebel I am.

wow thinking I have been looking at to many blogger pictures with that serious look on my face… that is so not a me picture. Looks like I was either contemplating life or wondering how many neighbours were staring out thinking I was totally crazy walking down the street with a camera set up.  Yep totally natural

and for a real treat and a change in scenery after work I walked out my back gate and voila Park Pictures for you. We are so fortunate to not only have an awesome Oasis of a backyard but if you walk through the hobbit gate you are in a park.  There is a ball field, a waterpad, soccer field and in the winter hockey rink all steps away ( and a large green space that we claim for a bocchi court )and a Library. I kid you not the library is yards away. ( over my right shoulder hockey rink over my left parking lot for the library)

Busy weekend planned, Kent is golfing, we have company coming to town and on Sunday I am participating in a #masterchefcheese event for #Chickadvisor via youtube. I am actually quite excited about cooking for Kent instead of him always cooking for me. Expect lots of posts on Instagram and twitter Sunday afternoon. ( oh yea and I have a recipe post set for Saturday already Chicken Cutlets and Red Pepper Garlic Pasta, come back you will love it I promise.)
