Hey! I Resemble That Remark
                                     I am a cat.  I am not vain. I am mortally wounded (sarcasm alert) because I have just read that bloggers are self absorbed, vain, self promoters, and all sort of other words that might suggest narcissism.  (I can never s...

Vancouver Briefly, and a Story
The Vancouver Forty Plus Blogger Meet Up was an amazing, wonderful and worthwhile event, and so much thanks is due to Melanie, Suzanne and Sue for putting it together.  I was exhausted, happy, un-stylish and over-fed.  I cannot even begin to describe it and...

Accessories and Layering In Summer Weather
We are getting cooler days mixed in with hot ones now.  Sometimes the range is as much as ten degrees.  I confess to liking the cooler ones better and something akin to room temperature is my favourite. When it gets too hot for me I tend not to want anythin...

Sensitive
  A Happy Place I am a very sensitive person.  I am sensitive to bright or flickering light, sensitive to heat and cold, my body overreacting to both.  I have sensitive skin which is not much of a treat and sensitive digestion which is even less so.  Loud n...

Fun Surprises and a Heat Wave
 I received a parcel in the mail this week, an exciting one!  It wasn't a surprise but it took a month to get here so there was definitely built up anticipation involved.  The creative, talented and ever so sweet Jazzy Jack of Natural Medley made me a brace...

Bouncing Back Isn't Quite the Right Word
Slowly I am recovering from such an amazing weekend.  I have had a great deal of sleep and a great deal of sitting on the sofa like a lump. I have to say, I think that sitting like a lump might be one of my specialties.  I like to imagine myself draped in a...

I Present Some Clothes and The Poems of a Sleep Deprived Woman
Poetry seems to pour out of me when I am exhausted but can't sleep.  It's a particularly annoying state to be in so it may have an effect on what I write, but it seems to contribute greatly to what feels like deeper insight into my own head.  This makes sen...

How I Changed My Mind, Grew, and Became Less Judgemental
I used to think divorce was nearly always a bad thing (unless a spouse was abusive) and even bought into that much trotted out idea that people just didn't try hard enough or gave up to soon.  It amazes me that I held these views as I am not remotely religi...

She Wears Dresses, She Paints And She is Sometimes Politically Incorrect
Guess Who?  I whipped this up between last night and this evening.  My fauvism is getting bolder, I think.  You may recall my saying I've lost interest in figure flattery.  Largely this is because it's too difficult to achieve and I can't bring myself to ca...

Just Another Hazy Sunday
Wildfires in my little corner of the world have brought us that peculiar pink-brown haze in the sky.  The temperature is down about ten degrees today which to my thinking makes if finally comfortable, but it is still expected to climb.  I woke up to these c...

Just Briefly
Thank you to those of you who read my latest story and for the encouraging comments.  It's a bit scary to post something still so rough ( I know there are typos I did not catch )  and I only did one re-write, attempting to tighten and smooth out the story. ...

A LIttle About Me.....a work in progress
Introduction
I'm Shawna, bubbly introvert, passionate about books, plants, painting, writing and cats.  I am rather fond of my small family and close friends too.  Despite having found myself going down a much different road from the one I thought I had started out on, I have plenty to make my life rich and wonderful.   In my former life I was a teacher and an enthusiastic gardener.  Due to living with a chronic illness some things have changed but life is about change anyhow and the best thing to do is embrace that.  In this blog I intend to share just how I embrace that.  I also intend to make plenty of typos and just for the fun of it, I might contradict myself once in awhile.  I wouldn't want to be too predictable!
