I like the look of this photo of the paper lanterns hanging in the tree with the Christmas lights, the clouds parted and you could just see a bit of the sun on Christmas eve.Yesterday my mom and I wandered around Granville Island and I saw these very whimsical bird houses. I wonder how the birds living there would feel?

Tuesday morning the snow was falling but by the time I got to work there was none to be seen. Wednesday morning we had a heavier wetter snow fall and this is what it looked like at about 0830 in the morning. I'm standing under the awning at the front door looking up the drive.Looking in the opposite direction.
