The Garden of Eden bike ride, and on setting boundaries

read

On the exercise front, I’ve still been walking or biking rain or shine daily. Actually, I took two days off recently. One because I went on a 2 hour bike ride the day before that totally did me in, and two, because I decided to stay home one evening and pressure wash the front driveway […]

A trip to a spectacular tulip festival in Abbotsford, BC

read

Every single year I read the notice… “Tulip Festival! Buy your tickets online to guarantee entry!” And every year, I’d drive down the highway, attempting to spot the fields from a distance, to gauge if the visit would be worth it. But I never did spot the fields. So I never did go. However, this […]

Beating the Feb blues with a winter bike ride

read

Today I really felt the February blues. I’m generally not an unhappy person, but drizzly days can leave you feeling less than inspired. I flicked on the TV, and started munching a few chips, when I realized… yikes. That’s true hibernation right there. Glancing outside, I noted it was attempting to rain. Sigh… I’ve really been […]

Another epic junk shopping trip to Granny and Grumpa’s Antiques

When I took a trip down south several years ago, I was ASTOUNDED on the amount of junk and antiques the region has, compared to little ‘ol quiet BC, Oh Canada. While we don’t have many places to hunt in the lower mainland, (between Vancouver and Hope) there are three places I will always suggest to […]

The golden hour nature artist strikes again

read

After I returned home from an unexpected day spent in town, I glanced up towards the sky. It was still blue! There was still time. The forecast called for 3 intense storms, thanks to remnants of a typhoon. So I scrambled to get the lawn mowed as the sky started to gather a spotty appearance. As […]

My glamping in the mountains weekend

read

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 […]

An inspired by wildflowers bikeride

read

Well, our Hawaiian adventure has come to a close. We are officially now home, and I’m busy nursing jet lag, wading through 6 weeks of mail, and cuddling the cats. Ohhh my cats!!!! I didn’t feel the ‘dread’ of coming home like I did last summer. I was ready! And boy, that crisp air and my own […]
