The 17th: Update # 17

Done.

Easily the smoothest move of all; huge thank you to my sister for the heavy lifting, use of truck and hilarious moving company. Huge thank you to my folks for the vehicle swap too. We crammed so much in it, I was too embarrassed to take a photo of it. 

I’ve already spent a night in the new place (mattress on the floor for one night), unpacked a number of boxes and sorted out where I want things to go.

Would have included photos but it’s still mostly a mess. Haha!

Here are some random moving shots. 

The truckload.

Obligatory McD’s breaky.

Lampshade made the cut.

iMac gets the trunk.

Table for one.

These damn things…

Just awful.

This damn thing.

Hanging Around

Grabbed a photo of this little traveller on the shed door when I went to take out the recycling this morning.

I believe it’s a male Wood Frog. Little dude was only about 3-4 cm long… about half the length of my thumb. It hopped away while I taking the photo; they have long legs with little webbing between their toes. Crazy thing: some “survive for weeks with an incredible two-thirds of their body water completely frozen—to the point where they are essentially solid frogsicles.” – http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/?p=105296

More about them and how you can report sightings to the BC Frogwatch program: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/…/public…/factsheets/frogs/wood.htm

Two For The Price Of One

I had another from Rainbow # 102; a secondary rainbow also appeared briefly. Notice the colours of the secondary rainbow are inverted, blue on the outside and red moved to the inside, something which is always the case.

It’s unclear if I get out of here before the dust and noise from what appears to be new house construction begins in ernest.
