An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

It is very hot here now with temperatures in the hi 30C range. Right now it is starting to cool off and it is 35C (with a “feels like” 39C) We set a record high yesterday and today is similar, except that we are expected to end the day with a thunderstorm. I really missed… Continue reading An Early Walk to Avoid the Heat

Hanging around the Apartment

I have been spending time getting things together for planting some flowers on my balcony. I picked up 3 railing planters and have them set up and filled with fresh dirt. Then I picked up some impatience to plant in the 2 square planters that I used at my last apartment and some petunias for… Continue reading Hanging around the Apartment

Life Goes On

Since my fall in December, I haven’t gone out much at all. I did take a return trip to Fort Whyte Alive, but otherwise, it has been only grocery shopping at the store next door to my apartment or ordering online for delivery. My FitBit bugs me to keep moving – so I walk around… Continue reading Life Goes On

Setting Up an Aquarium

It has been a few years since I have had any pets and even more years since I’ve had an aquarium. For a few years I had several aquariums going at a time with different fish or critters in them. It is hard to find apartments that allow any pets around here unless you can… Continue reading Setting Up an Aquarium

Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

I let you know last blog that I was packing and getting ready for one more move. It has been a few years since I have felt at home after selling my house and making the first move. This is the fourth move for me in about as many years – but this new apartment… Continue reading Sometimes Life Gets in the Way

What – Another Move???

As many of you know, I lived in my little old house for 33 years. I sold it when I retired, since I wouldn’t be able to afford the upkeep on it with just my pensions. It was a very old house (built in 1900). I am currently in my 3rd apartment in the 4… Continue reading What – Another Move???

My Plant Balcony

A little over a year ago I moved into a small apartment that had a little plant balcony. I couldn’t go on the balcony, but I could put plants on it. The balcony is about 25 inches wide and 57 inches long and there is a 3 foot step to get out onto it –… Continue reading My Plant Balcony

The Move

Well, I have moved again. It is almost time to use No Fixed Address (NFA) to locate me – LOL. I went from living in my own home for over 30 years to 3 moves in the last 3 years. I started packing early for the move, since I would be away from home while… Continue reading The Move

Spring is on the Way

Yes, Christmas is on the way too – but spring WILL be here sometime in the next couple of months. In the meantime, I will be moving at the end of March and have been packing in advance. The first 2 weeks in March I will be bird and house sitting, so I won’t get… Continue reading Spring is on the Way
