Flowers Everywhere

Well – maybe the flowers aren’t everywhere – but they seem to be in every corner of my yard right now.  I love this time of year.  🙂 The Blue Spruce has come a long way from the little 4 inch twig that Angie brought home from the community club when she was about 3… Continue reading Flowers Everywhere

Two Homes for Awhile

It is getting close to possession date for my new apartment, but is still 2 months away from my house being gone.  I am not looking forward to paying the bills for both places for that long, but since it is temporary, I will survive.  🙂 I have sold a few items that I will… Continue reading Two Homes for Awhile

Fort Whyte Alive in May

After the last few weeks of planning and then executing the plans to sell my house and set my retirement, I needed a break. After breakfast and grocery shopping this morning, I headed out for some fresh air and critter viewing at Fort  Whyte Alive. What a beautiful morning for a walk! Lots of Canada… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive in May

Flowers are Blooming

I’m glad I planted quite a few perennials over the years that bloom in the spring and early summer, so I can enjoy them this spring.  I have decided not to plant any annual flowers this year, since they normally look their best in the late summer and autumn and I won’t be living here… Continue reading Flowers are Blooming

I have planted many of these bushes, trees… Continue reading Spring Flowers

With the help of a friend, I found and hired a realtor (Josh).  Well, I guess… Continue reading A Wild Ride (but short)

Back to Some Critters

I have been very lax at keeping up with the critters in the neighbourhood.  For some reason, I often even forget my camera when Chester and I head out for our walks- so I don’t have many pictures – but I do have a few. I haven’t had time to figure out the bird that… Continue reading Back to Some Critters

Change in Lifestyle

I have been busy making plans and acting on them as required in the last few weeks. As many of you know – I tried to retire 2 years ago and failed.  The problem was that bills kept coming in, but my pension money wasn’t enough to cover them.  😦  So, I went back to… Continue reading Change in Lifestyle
