hello, good mornin'

here's how EVERY morning should start:

waking up to bright sunshine, which is especially nice considering this week in one day i witnessed an earthquake, a thunderstorm and then a tornado. not only is the sun shining but i woke up BEFORE that terrible beeping sound starting pouring out of my alarm. now on any other day i'd be very late right now, but today is not an ordinary day, today is a zoo day!!!

yes my love for elephants extends to my love for the zoo, but not just any zoo, it has to be the BOWMANVILLE ZOO, which is the oldest privately owned zoo in Canada. My baby (the rebel) hasn't had a trip to the zoo yet and i cant wait to exhaust my memory card there today. also tagging along will be my wonderful nieces and nephews; Isaiah, Liam, Olivia and Ella. the zoo could be without animals today and i dont think i'd care, i love those little ones.
this wonderful morning is going to get better because i will have some form of caffeine in my hand within the hour, preferably from tim hortons or if im lucky starbucks. and maybe my pastey self will get some colour today.
enjoy your day everyone!
im off to hug the sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lights, camera, action

more like, pajamas, bed, exhaustion?
im digusted with myself that it has taken me three weeks to post something!!!!!
it hasn't been for lack of trying. but after working 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week, who wants to come home and sit in front of a computer. now don't get me wrong i've still religiously followed other blogs over the past three weeks, just like i have for the past 18 months. that's right folks, ive been that annoyingly annonymus reader who leaves comments and had no blog for you to peak at. well all of that changed three weeks ago, when my lovely cousin over at Swe Daisy Spaces, God help me i have no idea how to make that a link to click on (im learning), help set me up with this little baby, "Elle On Safari".
my intention is to use this blog as a place to share, learn and vent about all the chimpanzee moments i encounter on a daily basis. hopefully we learn a little something from eachother and have a few laughs along the way.
the up coming weeks are going to be a little crazy, im leaving my job, moving back to a city i love and going back to school. im hoping to share some before and after shots of my ATTEMPT at decorating and hopefully share some wisdom while im at it.
you'll have to excuse my lack of punctuation, it just isnt my style. a few things you should know about me, my sense of humour is sahara dessert dry, im ridiculously obsessed with elephants (of the real variety), zebra print (not the actual animal, just in the textile sense) and my love for all things pink could scare small children.
im also deathly afraid of heights, enter the above picture. that is a HUGE ferris wheel in niagara falls, canada. i did go on it, i didnt pass out but i certainly hyperventilated for the 20 minutes we were up there. that picture is a favourite of mine. oh i should have mentioned, im picture crazy! as in my canon rebel is always in my purse, i lug that baby just never know when a photo op will happen!
with love and until next time,
