Long exposure iPhone photos

This isn’t anything new, but it was new to me. In fact I believe it has been around since iOS11 which came out about three years ago. Lately we’ve been doing lots of trails and that involve water of some sort and I’ve found myself wishing that I took our dSLR camera with us soContinue reading “Long exposure iPhone photos”

Baxters Harbour

We went to check out Baxters Harbour today. It has been a long time since I’d been there and most of the family hadn’t been there before. It’s beautiful and really cool with the waterfall and the rock formations. Things can change quite a bit depending on the tide but being here at low tideContinue reading “Baxters Harbour”

Kentville Pumpkin People 2019

Our town has a fun tradition for the month of October. We have the Pumpkin People pop up all over. Each year is a different theme, but I really like this years especially. It is Toon Town, showcasing a bunch of classic cartoons. This morning we got up and went apple picking again with familyContinue reading “Kentville Pumpkin People 2019”

Lonely Working Distributed

Recently I wrote about having connections with my distributed team. Part of that was because people have assumed it must be lonely working from home without seeing people. It’s been rare that I’ve ever felt this way much because of my team but also because I have a great network of family and friends IContinue reading “Lonely Working Distributed”

My favourite way to relax

Tomorrow morning I start back to work after a week off. Previously I had a bad habit of at least checking in on work a few times while I was supposed to be away. This time though I disconnected almost entirely. Not even coming into Slack to socialize with my team. We spent most ofContinue reading “My favourite way to relax”

A close to home summer

For the past few summers we have spent a lot of it on the road on a couple of epic trips. If you haven’t before you can read about those trips here, 2017 and 2018. This year though we’re going to stay close to home. So far things have been a combination of busy andContinue reading “A close to home summer”

Trying baseball

If you’ve been following along at all you’ll know that basketball has been the main sport for Noah. He loves it and constantly wants to be playing or watching it. He’s tried other sports before when he was younger but none that stuck. For a while I’ve been wanting him to try something else againContinue reading “Trying baseball”

When you find something you like, buy two

That at least seems to be what some hotel and Airbnb decorators think. On our summer vacation in 2015 we stayed in a shifty hotel just outside of New York. I found it funny to find two pictures the exact same beside each other. We arrived at our Airbnb last night, everything is really niceContinue reading “When you find something you like, buy two”

That proud teary eyed feeling

Tonight I was digging through Noah’s backpack looking for his homework book that goes back and forth between school. It wasn’t there, but I found a little piece of paper buried underneath his snow pants. Apparently a few weeks ago as part of a smaller group of the class they did an exercise where theyContinue reading “That proud teary eyed feeling”
