My beau and I went to Harrison Hot Springs to try it out as a possible honeymoon spot and we loved it. Our plan is to tour BC for a week after our wedding and we definitely plan on making the hot springs one of our stops along the way.
It was so relaxing and beautiful.
Wow, looks amazing with that old bridge in the background, and Congrats, again, Meeshelle!

Where the heck is Shuswap Lake, British Columbia? It’s 335 km (208 m) northeast of Vancouver, B.C. in Canada. If you like details, we were at 50° 57’ 54” N x 119° 14’ 41” W. Or if you prefer, we were in the middle of a lake fishing and later on in the middle of a golf course up and down the side of a mountain. We went up in the last week of April, driving through some snow to get there. The first morning there was ice on the bucket outside of Tom’s lakeshore cabin. We caught some lake trout and several Kamloops trout, saw eagles, hawks, loons, swallows and hummingbirds, started a wood stove chimney fire and put that out without harm done, and helped Tom’s Mom get her gardens organized for spring planting. On our last day’s early morning departure we saw 22 deer on and beside the road before we got to the main highway. So, lots of fun and enjoyable memories for a week away.
Nice shots, sure looks like a beautiful area!

I remember the days when I scanned a playground and the only thing that caught my eye would be the swing sets. Nothing has changed, though I do find a field of luscious green grass much more appealing to spend time doing nothing on.
The adorable little girl in this photo is the perfect balance of precious and divalicious. And the pair of feet belong to a little boy who is just as sassy.
This photo makes me miss the days when a week without a scraped knee would be celebrated (I really like running around, on, and under things, like most kids).
I invite you to join my personal dare to play a game of Grounders the next time we come across a playground. I’ll let you know how it goes, and I would love to hear yours! I think it’ll be quite fun.

This one is 4″ (100 mm) diameter, the feet stick out a bit further. They are turned and carved from Maple.
These are my first carved feet. The local woodturners club (http://www.gvwg.ca/) challenge was to make a turned item with carved feet. Most of such feet are simple stands, but I tried something more complicated for fun.
This month’s challenge – handed out by the local woodturners guild – was to give our bowls something to stand on. Fittingly, my egg-cup sized bowl can now stand on its own two feet and run off with the chocolates…
Human Books…and no, you can’t take these ones in the bathtub with you.
I was more than a little confused the first time I heard about one of these. Human Book? What other kinds are there? It’s not like elephants have gotten into the publishing business, they don’t have fingers. Then I remembered that thing called ‘Internet’ and was enlightened.
Actually, human books are people, not paper bound volumes, that volunteer to share their life stories, as part of a program launched by the Human Library.
I haven’t had the opportunity to take out a living book yet, but I do love the concept. It reminds me that everyone has a unique and interesting story, and makes me appreciate what a rich, and diverse world we people (and the occasional elephant) live in.
Pretty cool picture, and a fantastic project!

I live in Canada. It’s April — c’mon spring!
Snow Toes: What to do about snow in April…after finishing Day One of hot yoga month I thought I’d complete the day with a Finnish Sauna experience. Still hot when I got home, I contemplated diving into the 3 feet of snow outside my house.
It wasn’t like a Finnish Sauna.
LOL, pretty good picture to go along with that great sense of humor!
The Treehouse by Dodie Goldney is about the creative life. I believe everyone has the capacity to be creative. I hope to inspire people to do more creative things and think more creatively. (Wow, I think I just wrote my mission statement).
I was just looking through old photos, pondering what I might post about next, and I found this pic of my toes, from February 3, 2005. I actually dated the photo. I’ve spent years photo-documenting the renos that now appear on The Treehouse. I don’t have that carpet anymore, but I actually was trying to get a photo of the pattern on the rug. I don’t know why I saved the toe shot, except that it MUST have been to send them to Toemail one day! I’m excited!
This photo was taken in the Treehouse, (my home), which is on the Thompson River in beautiful Kamloops, BC, Canada. I kind of like this one. It looks like my toes are totally photobombing the pic. Toebomb?
Like the patterned carpeting and fun shot!
