I check the calendar regularly. Below it sits the “to do” list, which even in semi retirement, I can’t seem to let go of. Today, for some reason, my eyes strayed to the words beside the pictures on the calendar.Continue reading “Good things will happen”
Sometimes we have to step outside of our comfort zone. Assess and manage the risks and then go for it. That’s what we did yesterday.Continue reading “#WOYP Birch & Jowls anyone?”

We I reviewed the basic guidelines and off we went. Little did we know that we’d have to actually put those into use.
From the time I could read one of my favourite activities was to hide out in the big hall closet sitting on the butter box and devour books. I would close the sliding door most of way and my world would disappear and suddenly I felt like a Bobbsey Twin on the way to the seaside for an adventure. The books changed over the years and eventually I outgrew that closet. I then created a reading nook in my own closet and could be found after lights out reading by flashlight. I pretty much read anything I could get my hands on that wasn’t a school book.Continue reading “Reading is…”

Monday’s I was on call, Tuesday’s I hit the pool, Wednesday was errand or appointment day, Thursday’s found me back at the pool for round 2 and Friday after work was drink time with friends. And now…Continue reading “Floundering in the Deep End”
We had our first family supper last weekend. It was just as wonderful as one can imagine. The noise and motion that comes with 7 large dogs, 6 adults and 2 littles. It was so wonderful and yet, sadly, bittersweet.Continue reading “Bittersweet supper”
I was going to skip this last week for a large number of reasons (and indeed may be already too late to link up) with the Sunday stills theme of the great outdoo
But…this week the theme was front and center at Nan’s house. I had enrolled my “littles” in at Timbernook for a session called “Little Wild Ones”. This international outdoor school has a location literally right across the road from me; 1.5 km down a big hill. Our outdoor adventure included getting there.Continue reading “#Sundaystills Right out My Door”
