My glamping in the mountains weekend

Kawkawa Lake Eco Retreat Getaway

We have officially hit fall in our region. But rather than decorate the house to the hilt for the season, there was something else on my agenda I desired more. And that was head for the hills before our rain started. When it rains in BC, it doesn’t mess around. We can be buried for WEEKS with […]

Frothy homemade iced coffee with simple ingredients


When we were in Hawaii this past summer, iced coffee became a daily habit. Would you believe I had never had one before, other than an iced cappuccino from Tim Horton’s? I didn’t really get how cold coffee on ice could be good. I liked mine steaming hot, with sugar and real cream, thankyouverymuch! Well, […]

You guys… I did something totally spontaneous this past weekend, that I cannot wait to blog about! I even bought another point and shoot camera for the trip (after having lost my last one on our Hawaiian vacay). I needed some mountain time before fall hit hard, so I head for the hills for a […]

Stacked lime and purple hydrangeas for a fall mantel

Hi friends, I’m pretty sure most of you have noticed my absence from blogging as usual. I’ve been trying to make weak excuses on why I haven’t been able to make projects, and so forth. Truth is, my family is in crisis mode. And I’m just needed offline at this time. We could also use […]
