It's an autumn palette over at the Colour Q this week. I found some cute photos of my kids out hiking with me a few weeks ago. This page is called "My Backyard", because it's only a 5 minute walk from my house to the trail head. I live in an area that is at the forests edge of a large city. We get lots of wildlife in our yard including bears, coyotes, cougars, racoons and of course skunks and squirrels.
Well it's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at the Colour Q.
Let me explain this page a minute. I took these photos of my kids at the beach last week. We've been having a warm and sunny September here in Vancouver. And there is not school yet as the teachers have been out on strike since June. As I am both a teacher, and married to a teacher, it's been a tough financial ride for us. But spending the morning on the picket line gives me time to spend with my own kids. And taking them down to the beach last week gave me a lot of unexpected joy during a really stressful time.
The great news for me was that I woke up this morning to the news that the labour dispute has finally come to an agreement in the wee hours of the morning, and on Thursday we we vote to ratify it. So hopefully the schools will be open next week - YAY!
It doesn't matter where you live, I'm sure you can agree that we should expect our government to follow the law, and when the break the law they should be held accountable. And this was a major part of why we were out on strike. I did it for the future of my children's education.
So enough of the political rant, and back to my page. I really like using the dark background. I think it really sets of the rest of the colours on this page.
