Chinatown, Vancouver, BC

Heather and I had some fun yesterday

we toured around Chinatown and had the opportunity to be educated in the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities

yep, my day pretty much starts like this...

standing at the Millenium Gate, the entrance to Chinatown

got myself a print of Peach Blossom. It's supposed to give me much luck with romance, Lord knows I need it

Mount Seymour, North Vancouver, BC Skiing

Had a great day skiing with friends

its usually just Carla and I but her daughter Melissa and brother Tim joined in as well

it was so foggy going over, I could not see the North Shore at all from the bridge, yikes

driving up the mountain the snow line started half way up and we broke through the fog

they now have designated parking lots, skiers get the very top lot, yeah

look at that sun

very icy in the village

down below it must be miserable, you can see in the distance the whole lower mainland covered in fog. they wouldn't have even known how glorious a day it was above the fog line...glad I did

a snack break

a lunch break

 a couple more runs after lunch then called it a day

caught these two just sitting around enjoying the sun and view

then back below the fog, high carumba

I Can't Keep Away

One of my favorite things to do is thrift store shop

the hair on the back of my neck tingles just thinking about it!

i've stayed away as long as I could, but hey, I needed a new book, right?

OMG, look at all the shoes

got a great new sweater to wear with tights

new pair of dress pants. one thing that pisses me off though, I have a closet full of pants that need to be hemmed.....hmm, when will I get to that

another sweater

Spring boots exactly like the pair I already have that are trashed, yipee, they are so comfy

and my best find today, a new coat
