Listening to Willie Nelson and #painting Rocky Mountain Goat, Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park, Montana

Going-to-the Sun Road is one of the most beautiful drives I've done

And we saw this Rocky Mountain Goat

Audi Brake Art #painting

In honour of the safety provided by my Audi across 100,000 kilometres of beautiful Canadian and American landscapes, 
I simply could not throw away the old brake discs 

So I painted them

Moraine Lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks is one of the most beautiful places she has taken us to

When the brakes dry, they will get a clear coat of protective paint ...

... And break the monotony of the garden landscape

Replacing Brakes in the #Audi A3

At 102,000 kilometres this is what the brake pad looks like compared to a new one

I could have driven more kilometres and waited for the warning sign, but decided to replace both the front and rear brake discs and pads at 104,491 kilometres

Curious to know how many kilometres you have done with your first set of brakes

Taking off the winter wheels ...

The new brakes and the old all season Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires

Tire Rack is a great site to research tires

Drive safe whatever you drive!

#Wildlife Swans in Flight

Went for an evening walk by Lake Ontario 

There is still some snow on the rocks

What an awesome feeling to see Swans in flight!

Reminds me of the Concorde

I guess they were heading home ...

And so was I ...

Have you seen Swans at Sunset?

Frying Falafel #StreetFood

My wife makes Falafel from scratch (and it tastes better than what you can buy from outside) 

If you like making street food at home, try my Kati Rolls 

#Wildlife Raccoon carefully climbing down branches

Two raccoons were playing on the tree. One climbed down the proper way (along the trunk of the tree) and the second decided to take a shortcut ...

♫ "But at the speedway at Nazareth I made no mistake" - Mark Knopfler

Get Speedway at Nazareth by Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris on iTunes

I love both versions!

Winter #reflections on our evening walk

As we were coming to the end of our evening walk, I said "it's long since we saw geese" 

Then suddenly out of the blue ...

                                       ... from behind us, as though they heard us speak ...

Five Canada Geese

Canada Geese are the first to arrive North in Spring, and the last to leave in Winter

Good night

#Art Listening to Mozart and #painting Swans at Sunset, Lake Ontario

After a days work, what can be more relaxing than listening to classical music and painting


Mozart's Requiem in D minor

                      Swans have only one partner and they maintain their relationships for a lifetime!

#Art The post box was too plain. So I painted it #painting

Hopefully it will dry up before any mail arrives on Monday!

♬ Listening to Psalm 22:7-8

"All they that see HIM laugh HIM to scorn;
They shoot out their lips, and shake their heads saying:
HE trusted in GOD that HE would deliver HIM ..."

Fruit of the #Spirit

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 
gentleness and self-control
Against such things there is no law
- Galatians 5:22-23
