Enjoy Today

I took the Christmas tree down today, so it seemed fitting to write my first blog post of 2018. It has been hard for me to sit down and write in the last month or so; not because I have been so busy, but because I just haven't been able to put into words all... Continue Reading →

Mammogram Day

Today, for me, was Mammogram Day. Oh yeah! Actually, it wasn't that bad. I wouldn't even have mentioned it except for a few funny things and, of course to remind all you women to get your mammogram done!!

Facing My Future

It was fitting that this beautiful scene of the pink and orange clouds perfectly reflected in the dead calm harbour was what greeted me as I walked along a path in the park one evening a few weeks ago. It was exactly how I felt - dead calm, content with the peacefulness of the moment,... Continue Reading →
