The tulips are out and blooming at English Bay







Ron took this photo in of those walks we do during the day. 







We also went on a few days road trip with Kerry.






We drove to Calgary, Cranbrook, Fruitvale, and Penticton BC. That was a fun drive! 




Ron and I went for a nice long walk  and it was wonderful. 







When we got back to our apartment, we saw the police and ambulance closing off the back alley. A woman jumped to her death. Her body was already on the ground when we got home. It was horrible and very surreal. I felt so sad for her and her family. 







After some hours, her body was taken away and the firetruck came to wash the ground. 





Despite the sadness… I know life has to go on.

Ron and I went out for lots of walk around the seawall and Stanley park. It is beautiful here in Vancouver. 






Ron wanted new appliances. So we got rid of the old fridge and the ancient stove. We had to have electrical work done for the new stove to be plugged in. 






New appliances now installed. Now this kitchen has our stamp in it. 







New Fridge, New Stove, New Microwave, New Toaster. 






We thought we would like an artwork on this wall - but the feel was not what we were looking for.  It clashed with the other work of art we already have in the living room. 30 minutes within buying this piece, we returned it. 






A window washer came to clean windows for the building. 






Ron and I decided we both loved this color on the Dining room wall. 





I start the paint work. I was nervous. I had worrries that the color might be too strong. But we take the risk. 






very nice earthy color. Very delicious color. 






First layer of paint. I am worried. It looks concerning. It was uneven. 





The color came out perfectly after 3 coats of paint. It was night time by the time I was done. 






This is the dining room wall the next day. Ron and I loved it.
