Three Things Thursday – June 29, 2017

(“Three Things Thursday was created by Emily at Nerd in the Brain and is hosted by Natalie at There She Goes. Three Things Thursday is quite simply a list of three things that have made you happy this week. Your three things can be big or small, anything that makes you laugh or brightens your day!” – from There She Goes)

Three things that made me happy this Thursday are:

1. Colouring books for grown-ups. I think the photos speak for themselves:

Some of the coloured pencils I used here are metallics, and in the photo, you can actually see a bit of the metallic sheen. I had so much fun colouring this page!

I used coloured, fine-tip markers for this one. Note: the Harry Potter colouring book – it’s my latest acquisition.

Finished! This was fun. I enjoyed using the markers, but I’m going to have to get a bigger set with more colours…

2. Sunny days in Vancouver. They’re such a treat! And today there’s barely a hint of a cloud in the sky. So lovely!

This is the view from the main window at the back of our tiny apartment. You can see English Bay in between the tall buildings, and West Vancouver off in the distance. I love all the trees in our neighbourhood!

This is the view from the side window, by our kitchen. The North Shore mountains appear a lot closer than they do in this photo. Oh, and just to give you an idea how gigantic that tree on the right actually is: this photo was taken from our sixth floor apartment. I think the tree is actually taller than our building. It’s magnificent!

3. Packing a suitcase for a roadtrip with my mom and sister. It’s going to be SO much fun! We’re hitting the road on Monday morning. Laughs will be had. Manitoba, here we come!

Shampoo and conditioner: check. Yarn for a new knitting project: check. A good book: check. Presents for my loved ones: check. I just need to add a couple more hot-weather outfits, a toothbrush, and I’m good to go…
