Nutella and froyo

I made some Nutella brownie cupcake things because it's Halloween time and I was craving chocolate. So simple and yummy!
Then a few hours late my sister called and suggested we go to Menchies for frozen yogurt. Ok, twist my arm, why don't ya!

Christmas hats

I dropped of the rest of my pumpkin hats to the patch this past weekend. Now I've got Christmas on the brain!
I saw this pin from Charmed by Ewe, how adorable! I made a couple in Christmas colours, but changed the stitch to single crochet, for a tighter fit.
I made one in adult size. Maybe it will go in the "to sell" pile, or maybe I will keep it for myself :)

Autumn at UBC

There's so many lovely trees on campus, losing their leaves and looking gorgeous all the while:
Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of rain too!
But then we have moment's like this - I see blue sky up there!

Rock n Roll Half Marathon

No, I did not run a half marathon. But my sister Annabelle did! I signed up to volunteer at the event so I could meet her at the finish line. But ugh, I had to get up at 5am! This is what my street looks like at that ungodly hour.
The volunteers got on a trolley and were then shipped down to the finish line.
First task of the day, unwrapping and organizing the medals. White and blue for the 10K runners, green and blue for the half marathon runners.
After organizing some post-race snacks, one of the organizers poached me to stand at the finish line and be the official time keeper. Along with a few others, I got to record the top 10 (or so) runners and their times for both races.
I caught this action shot of Paul Kimugal, who finished the half marathon first - 1 hour and 4 minutes!!
And here is Rachel Cliff, who was the first female to finish the half marathon, in 1 hour and 15 minutes.
And here is my sister crossing the line!!
She did great! She said she had some toe issues on the last 5 km, but she's all done!
Noah and Leyna came out to cheer her on.
Check out that pace and finish time, yay go Anna!
And look, here's a pic of me with her medal on! I win for having survived a 5am wake up time!!

Soup days again

It's been so drippy and rain these days, which makes me want to have soup all the time. Vendula left me some fabulous crackers on my desk...
And they WERE fabulous!

Rainy days

Holy rain, Batman! The wind and rain have been non-stop in YVR. I had to walk back from the community centre last night and I was puddling jumping all the way home. My feet were soaked, which means I need some new rain boots!
