Living Life and Blogging
I thought about quitting my blog but was very indecisive.  It felt like I had nothing to say and that I needed to get out there and live life .  I didn't say anything because I just didn't feel ready to make a final decision.  So I took a break, for the who...

We Will Never Forget...
Today is a day when my thoughts are always with my Dad.  So many remembrances...not just November 11th, but his birthday on November 2 and his death in October of 1989.  I would love to go to the Cenotaph for the ceremonies but I can't take the crowds. This...

Rummicube Mondays
Every Monday afternoon, I get together with some of my girlfriends and have lunch and play rummicube.  We alternate hosting duties so you're in charge once a month.  A couple of wine spritzers and a nice lunch.  A more refined version of guy's poker night. ...

Clarification of January 12's Post
I spoke to my Mom this morning after hearing her feelings were hurt by my post.  That, of course, was not my intention and I wanted to apologise to her for any misunderstanding. As anyone who has read my blog regularly knows, my Mom has lived with me since ...

Lukas and Thoughts for 2015
Lukas graduated from puppy class yesterday.  Well, I say "graduated" but that is putting it kindly.  Lukas hasn't mastered loose leash walking (he still likes to drag me around and I need to get that under control before he gets much bigger) or stay (he has...

Puppy Preschool - Day One
Still no snow.  It sure makes getting around easier but I would like just a little snow; just a half dozen centimetres of snow would suit me.  This time of year everything looks grey and brown and drab and dull.  A little snow brightens up the world and I'm...

Garden Glimpses
It's a rainy, overcast, grey day in Peterborough so I thought I'd share some photos of the garden that I've taken this month. So cute!!!!  A planter made for me by my "honourary" nephew, Josh.  He's still in high school but has a blacksmithing business.  I'...

I had my new beautiful sofa delivered last week. Excellent prices, excellent service. Well worth the wait in order to have a Canadian made product in the fabric I chose. Looks great in my living room. I'll buy my next sofa here too but that's going to be a long time because the one I just got is so well made, it'll never wear out!
