Bike ride down Kettle Valley Railway Trail

The bucket list bike ride down Kettle Valley Railway trail My sister and brother-in-law Wendy and Wes live in Hope, BC, Canada, approx 45 minutes from me. I’ve written about Hope HERE many times.

A new antiques shopping find

Antique shopping at Switzer's Vintage Decor in Chilliwack, BC Canada-001

Yesterday I head into town to drop off some paperwork at my accountant’s. I then also moseyed on around town taking a small detour.

However road shoulders were still inhabited by those annoying little ice glaciers. So I set off on foot instead, […]

Happy New Year ice storm musings


Happy New Year, dear friends! And what a new year it has been in our neck of the woods. We were hit with a major ice storm right after Christmas, and it’s been cold enough to hold onto those temps and most of the ice. It’s starting to get old now though with crusty, dirty […]

Lessons from the fall rain


I’m beginning to appreciate the many layers of fall. It seems like yesterday that I was moping about the heat of summer leaving us. It packed its shades and sunscreen and just flat out left our country seemingly overnight, leaving leaves all over the place in complete haste. The nerve! I guess that meant while I moped about being home […]
