Good Day Sunshine

Surprise, I’m sending Christmas greetings from California.  After the most brilliant flight with US Air (thanks guys), we’re happily spending a week in warmer climes. We quickly found our way to the ocean, and were happy to see this work in progress.

Merry Christmas!

Isn’t it just fantastic.  It took 10 hours to take plain ol’ beach sand and turn it into this work of art.

Happy Holidays

Just by chance, while we enjoyed the sunshine, this was playing on the stereo 🙂

I Love You

I need to laugh,

and when the sun is out

I’ve got something I can laugh about

I feel good, in a special way

I’m in love and it’s a sunny day

It's A Sandman

Good day sunshine, good day sunshine, good day sunshine

Lucky me, I have a dedicated craft room and currently design for Paige Taylor Evans and The Hip Kit Club. I mostly enjoy making 12x12 layouts and Mini Albums. Thanks so much for coming by 💛

    1. We are such tourists, ha. Coming from the prairies, the ocean amazes us every single time. I love the sounds, the smells, the birds and on this day, his artistic endeavour and the music. The sunshine feels sooooo good. 🙂


        1. I agree Alys, lucky you! If I could take brief liberty with the Beach Boys song…I’d sing “I wish we all could be California Girls”. We biked around today and I was crazy camera lady taking pictures of every garden in site. It’s like Disneyland for me. 🙂


        2. I hear that. The gardens down south are beautiful. How nice to be riding bikes through it all. We rented a four-seater once when the boys were small. It was fun but all too brief.

          Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.


        3. A four seater bike? What fun. Sounds very nostalgic. Thanks Alys, stay tuned, who know’s what’s coming up on Boomdeeadda….I never do…LOL On a wing and a prayer xoK


    1. Thanks Herman, I’m sure this guy could sculpt Mr Bowie but it’d be hard to capture that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that we’ve all grown to love. Perfection is such an intangeble thing. 🙂


    1. Hey, I thought of you today on a walk around the neighbourhood here on Coronado Island. Someone had fantastic roses blooming along their fence. Amazing what a day of airports and planes rides can do for your psyche. Thanks for the warm wishes Steven.


    1. What? 80 sounds way out of season. Is that the usual? I think it might have been 18C or 19C here today or 66F. Not super duper warm, but hey we just left snow. That’s funny, I’ve never heard it referred to as ‘Left’ coast…I will remember that! Cheers 🙂


      1. It’s Florida. December is a crapshoot. It’s been 66F a few times so far, but it’s been pretty warm lately. As a Florida native, I’m bundled up when it’s under 70. Thin blood. Snowed once when I was a kid (a brief burst of flurries, but that kinda counts). Never been to Cali but I’ve heard that it gets cooler at night due to the desert-ness, and the Pacific is such a big body of water, the water temp stays pretty stable. We live on the Gulf of Mexico which stays warmer since it’s more sheltered and I think the Gulf stream, although that might be on the east side…don’t you love my vague geographical knowledge? haha


        1. Ha, LOL…learning tons. Now practice that in front of a green screen, maybe throw in a howling cat or two and you got yourself an entertaining weather report. You would pretty much perish in Alberta…lets just say ‘Dec 13, 2009 all time coldest temp in Alberta -46.1 add the windchill -58 C or -72 F (Keep in mind that’s a ‘one of in history’) now that’s just inhumane.


        2. If there was a hell, I’m pretty sure mine would be that. I hate being cold more than anything else in the world. Everywhere you go here, people overcompensate for the heat and humidity by keeping the AC on a sub-zero temps. I have to bring a sweatshirt with me. Ridiculous.


  1. That snow village castle in the sand is so awesome! I love the sand snowman too! That is truly something beautiful to run into while you two are relaxing! What makes your post even cooler, is that while I am viewing it, it is snowing from WordPress on my screen! A nice added touch! 🙂


    1. Thanks Val, you’re right. I didn’t notice that till now..giggle. This fella had out photo albums with some of his other creations, too amazing. I think he just does it for tips. Looked like he was doing ok. Thanks for joining us on the beach. 🙂


      1. Boy oh boy, I wish I was joining you on the beach, as it’s freakin cold here! One of those cold rainy damp chill to the bone kinda cold. Brrrr. Make sure you take some more pictures while you are there!


        1. I hope, I’m battling a nasty cold since we got here. I was determined not to let it slow me down, but I had to give in tonight. Hopefully, it’s a short one. I bet the dampness makes it feel even colder. We don’t get that on the prairies, I feel for you. Stay toasty with your babes!


Talk nerdy to me………..
