This challenge was so much fun! Thanks for the inspiration. I enjoy visiting people and glimpsing into their lives….what a neat idea.

The wine shot…ha. At 5 pm I had several things I was looking at to take a shot of….my wineglass seemed so obvious. Makes me laugh.

Gonna participate again next time.

The 3pm photo looks awfully nice and inviting. Love reading in bed mid-afternoon…or napping!

Thanks again for the inspiration – it was challenging – the hours seemed to just slip by so fast – but I had a lot of fun.

The soup is a new recipe for me… butternut squash! The recipe is here: http://www.recipes.ca/recipes/soup-stew-and-chili/vegetarian/butternut-squash-soup-with-cheater-croutons

FYI the 1:00 p.m photo is butter beer. Blog post to come. :)

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 offspring: Emma (23) and Sarah (21). 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, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
