Mine are up at my blog. Had a great time looking at everyone’s photos like always! I love seeing the Holiday side of things in Canada while we just have a normal October Monday. So much fun! Thanks for hosting!

Oh, I so wanted to do this, but clearly needed an alarm to remind me to start in addition to the hourly one to remind me to take a photo.

Since I spent the entire day on Monday painting the new baby’s room, I’m sure my photos wouldn’t have been that exciting. How many ways can I take a photo of myself holding a paint brush?

I loved seeing everyone’s take on the day though – thanks for sharing!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
