June 1, 2021

What a year 2021 has turned out to be! Yesterday it was announced that here we were into our 473rd day of COVID precautions. Although there has been lots of "downs" for many of us I am learning to focus on the good things in my life. I have a loving family, a safe and warm home, plenty of healthy food available, a caring community around me, ready access to health services and I am fortunate to live in a province that has put public safety before politics during this time of COVID.

It is a year since I left my large property in the Annapolis Valley and moved to a quiet condo development in the oceanside community of Eastern Passage. I have a garden home and have managed to create container gardens filled with perennials and vegetables plants. My hopes to take part in broader community activities is still on hold for now but I have been able to explore on foot the many trails nearby and get to know my new neighbours. Soon we all hope to share in a street party; we are all newbies here so there will be much to share. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

I'm a farm kid from Alberta, lived in Ontario for 25 years and have now settled in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia. I have two adult children and two grandchildren. A cat and a rescue pooch keep me company.


Other Information:
I love to garden. Crosswords and reading keep me busy when the snow flies. Cooking is also a delight- I'm always looking for new ideas for vegan meals. I am passionate about diet and exercise and firmly believe that we do have the power to keep ourselves healthy by eating well and being active.

    6-7-21 HI! Now that SP is closing: There is a new google group forming. Here is the info! I am just SO happy we have time to get it together!!! I will miss you, too! I am not on FB or any other social media. SP saved my life, 9.2 years ago! I'm not giving up on myself! Haven't decided about Spark360/SparkAmerica, still in a bit of shock. But Chris has to do what he has to do to stay in business. I am VERY blessed he started SP!

    4A-HEALTHY-BMI started a new group: Copy & paste into your browser. IF you can't get in, contact her, she will send you an invite. This is world wide!
