It's a gorgeous fresh cool morning out there! These temps will help the lilacs last their longest. Next up: the giant candles of blossom on the chestnut trees! We'll be back to work after our long Victoria Day weekend. And although we sp... Read more

Too too glorious today . . . so there will be a bit more business work on "the project" this morning, and then we plan to sneak out to the golf course. Weather forecast is sunny sunny sunny and mid-20s. Yes we deserve it! And given it's... Read more
Just Business . . .
Saturday, May 16, 2015      20 comments

Many thanks for all the support on yesterday's "changes and challenges" blog! It's just business, not personal . . . . so not to worry. I am NOT worrying! Just beset with details, details, details and small disasters and ploughing on. T... Read more

Deep into it and pushing through it but still some weeks to go . . . NOT self-medicating with food, though. And just beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel . . . way off there in the distance!... Read more
Willingness and Will Power
Thursday, May 14, 2015      21 comments

Thanks to ONEKIDSMOM's status post I'm thinking about willingness. Yup, I too am willing to do what it takes today to be healthy. Today. And . . . for me willingness is not so much about will power. Which wears out. Which gets ex... Read more

It all happens at once here. After a stark white silent winter, everything blooms. I have apple blossom, grape hyacinth, violets, a single pale yellow daffodil in a tiny mauve vase on the kitchen table. Soon: lilacs, lily-of-... Read more
Kayaking!
Monday, May 11, 2015      20 comments

Haven't been out in a kayak since February when we were bird watching in the mangrove swamps: in about 3 feet of water! Lazy meanders, carried along by the current . . . and very low key. Yesterday DH took me up to Georgian Bay for kayaki... Read more
Happy Mother's Day!!
Sunday, May 10, 2015      27 comments

I love being a mother. Undoubtedly the toughest job I've ever done. Didn't get a whole lotta "mothering" experience as a kid (except from my truly wonderful older sister). Which means I've pretty much had to make it up as I went along. ... Read more

Lovely Weekend
Monday, May 04, 2015      27 comments

I'm feeling refreshed and ready to go. Actually saw one of the peregrine falcons yesterday using my binoculars. They have been calling pretty much constantly for several weeks, but they move so quickly it's hard to locate them. This one w... Read more
