Book Review: All the light we cannot see.
A few months ago, we were at my knit night book club and trying to decide on our next book. Anthony Doerr's 'All the Light We Cannot See' came up as a suggestion, and although we did not pick this book, when I found it on 2 for 20 at the airport in Vancouve...

Hi blog, it's been a while.....cause you know, YouTube
Yeah, I know..... I haven't been posting lately. And I guess I have a couple of reasons for that. 1) Writer's block... too many ideas, never enough time. This is a type of writer's block that I seem to get. And I'm not sure I realized it until I saw a vlog ...

A day of movies and travel
I just returned from a whirlwind weekend in Toronto. Full of family, friends, walking and blisters and beer, wedding dresses and Penelope, pools and patios. It was great and exhausting, wonderful to see all people I love and miss, but as always I'm so happy...
