Happy New Year

Wow – almost the end of 2012. 2012 was a wonderful year for me with my dream trip to South Africam becoming a reality.  I spent the first part of the year planning it and talking about it and the last part of the year showing pictures and talking about it.  So I guess 2012… Continue reading Happy New Year

Thoughts of 2012

2012 was a good year for me. I’ve talked endlessly about my trip to South Africa – both before and after.  🙂 I’ve also talked a lot about Chester after he developed seizures in 2011 (about the same time as I started making plans for South Africa).  Although he has recently developed a couple of… Continue reading Thoughts of 2012

Red River in December

I haven’t been posting pictures taken during our walks lately for a couple of reasons. Its been cold and our walks have been shortened.  To stop Chester from eating too much snow along the walk, we have been jogging and its hard to take pictures while jogging.  It’s been cloudy and snowing most days. This… Continue reading Red River in December

Chester and His Christmas Present

Chester loves squeaky toys, so of course, he had to get a new one for Christmas.   The one I got for him is the same as one that had been a favourite of his quite awhile ago, but they don’t last forever so that one was removed a couple of years ago. We had an… Continue reading Chester and His Christmas Present

One Week til Christmas!

Wow – how is it possible that there is only one week til Christmas and two weeks until it is 2013? Obviously it happens every year, but it really snuck up on me this year.  🙂 My error detector says that snuck isn’t a word.  I’ve always used snuck, but maybe it should be sneaked? … Continue reading One Week til Christmas!

Re-Visiting South Africa

Well, I’m  not actually re-visiting there now – but I was going through the pictures from my trip again and decided to make a couple of videos using the best pics.  I got quite a few good pictures while I was there, so it was tough leaving some of them out, but I didn’t want… Continue reading Re-Visiting South Africa


Chester is doing great! As well as the prescribed meds for his seizures, I have put him on an over the counter supplement for mature dogs and he has more energy now along with hardly any limping after waking up.  For awhile he always limped for a few minutes, but other than the white on… Continue reading Chester

Foggy Frosty Day

When you wake up this time of year to a foggy morning, you know the trees will be covered in hoarfrost.  I always hope for a sunny day so the trees look really beautiful against the blue sky, but is usually turns out to be a cloudy day. As expected it is still cloudy here… Continue reading Foggy Frosty Day
