Project 52 - Sweet Shot Tuesday

Project 52 - Sweet Shot Tuesday
I had a hard time deciding what I was going to take a photo of today . It's been a day of waiting  I could of taken a photo of the snow that fell overnight, but I was waiting to see if it stopped, which it did, and I was waiting to see it melt which it did as well. I waited for the temperature to warm up, but it really didn't do that. I waited for a  bit of energy to get myself going, and that was a hard time coming.
 I waited all day for a phone call I have been expecting, and it didn't come in today.
Lots of waiting, not much to show. Until tonight.
My hubby and I went out for supper tonight with our daughter Lora  to Tumbleweeds Restaurant. That was worth the wait!!
So I am going to share what we ate for dinner!
My hubby had a Bison Ribeye Steak and fries. That dipping sauce was to die for! 

Lora had Seafood Fettucine. See that smiley face on her Scallop!

My dinner was Kung Pao Crispy Sesame Pork and Prawns. I have at least half of it which I brought home and I plan on eating it for breakfast tomorrow. How decadent will that be!

Dessert was Banana Cream Pie. It should of been illegal! The bananas were bananas Foster, flambee'd in rum and the sauce poured warm over banana custard. Whipped cream Oh my gosh, Lora and I shared this decadent dessert!

My hubby had a slice of Saskatoon berry Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream. 

The view of the bar area just ahead of where we were sitting;

And the doorway where we came into the eating area of the restaurant. It was a delicious dinner and we enjoyed our time with Lora.

Finally, a Storm!

We are located in an area  of Alberta right now that is famous for its fast and furious storms, so needless to say we have been waiting and waiting for one to show up. Finally we were rewarded! It was amazing how this storm blew in in about ten minutes time, chilled the air and darkened the skies, winds blew like crazy, and hail and snow fell. At the peak of the storm we were rewarded with one big flash of lightning and a crack of thunder so loud and powerful that it shook the house and rattled the china in the cabinet. I've never heard a crack of thunder that loud!
I ran out the front door to snap a few pictures, and almost got blown off my feet with the force of the wind. Two big tumbleweeds rolled down the street so fast I never managed to catch a photo of them. The clouds went from white and puffy, to grey and ominous, to black.

Some other brave souls out on the street checking out the incoming storm.

When the hail started it dropped pea size hail balls and they came down almost sideways.
My hubby and I were so excited to see our first storm, we were running back and forth between the front door and the back door to try and see as much of it as we could. My sister, who lives here and has seen many a storm just shook her head at our little back and forth frenzy to take it all in!  It's not new when you have seen lots of storms.

A half hour after the storm started it moved on. We only had that one crack of thunder, and it was gone. Now I am waiting again for storm number 2!!!

Playing with Fruit

I am very late this week getting my P52 photo in, it has been a blizzard (or two) around here some of this week! 
I had an idea for the theme for this, but with fresh snow etc. it was easier to stay at home and put off going to the store for fresh fruit. 
I finally went yesterday and here is some of the photos from the fruit I bought.
The nice part about taking photos of fruit is after when you get to eat it. I cut up so much fruit I will be snacking on it for a few days to come.
I put slices of fruit in my water bottle as well. Always trying to find ways of making water drinks more fun to drink!
I love love eating Fruit. It is cool, refreshing, good for you, tastes like summer to me. It's one of my favorite things!

And who among us has never played with their food??

Deer Me # 2

Another beautiful blue sky day on the Prairie. I have never seen so many deer in one spot before. These are drive by shots of a herd of deer we encountered on a drive back to Medicine Hat. 
Herds of Deer in the farmer's fields.

The other side of the road!

Smile me a River.

A sunny day shot along the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat. Beautiful day for a walk in the park.
