A Winter Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

You can see larger versions of these photos by clicking on them and scrolling through. I had almost finished the loop around, when I saw a… Continue reading A Winter Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Heading Home, day 3 & 4

It didn’t take long to get to Edmonton and since it was still morning, I thought I should find the Zoo and explore it. My GPS failed me though and although it got me fairly close (as I found out the next day), but it left me on a dead end street, saying “you have… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Heading Home, day 3 & 4

I am Home

Yesterday afternoon, I packed up my computers and brought them back home again.  I knew it would be a late night and I didn’t want to be doing this in the middle of the night.  So, I brought them back and got them hooked up before heading back to spend my last afternoon with Toby.… Continue reading I am Home

Moving On

Not today, but tomorrow, I’ll be moving back to my apartment.  The last 3 weeks have been fun and I’ll miss having a dog when I am living on my own again. I have posted most of the pictures I took of my 3 weeks with Toby on my FaceBook page, but I did save… Continue reading Moving On

Cancelled!

I was so excited about my hot air balloon ride scheduled for this morning – but they cancelled it last night based on the forecast.  The weather was looking fine, but the wind was predicted to be 25 km in the morning and for the rest of the day.  25 km is 13.5 knots and… Continue reading Cancelled!

Merry Christmas

Whatever  holiday you are celebrating, I hope you can relax – whether on your own or with friends and/or family. At this time of year it is wonderful to slow down a bit from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether you live in the north and have snow on the ground (might even… Continue reading Merry Christmas

Today is My Mother’s Birthday

Imagine this!  Ninety years ago today – my mother was born. Please join me in wishing her a very happy birthday. It is great having a birthday on a long weekend (as it is here this weekend).  This allows for some out of town family members to come in for a small gathering.
