Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

Today I will be heading home and I was awake and out before sunrise. It was early enough that I thought I’d be able to get better sunrise photos at Whirlpool Lake than I did yesterday. I got a sneak peak from the road before the turnoff to the lake. Once I was at the… Continue reading Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

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

Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

This morning, I was up and heading back to the park and my favourite sunrise spot at Grayling Lake.  It was very cloudy, so I was pretty sure the sunrise would be a flop, but there was still time for the clouds to break apart – and I wasn’t going to waste the chance. With… Continue reading Winter Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Part 2

Catch Up

Between the move and my upcoming vacation, I haven’t been around here much lately and I apologize for that – but it will be awhile before things get back to normal (whatever that is) again. To fill you in – I have moved, although still unpacking.  Hopefully I will be finished unpacking before I leave… Continue reading Catch Up

Moving Progress

With just under 2 weeks (13 days) until moving day, everything is looking pretty good.  I’ve actually already done most of what I can do until the day before the actual move. There are so many things that I may be using in this last 2 weeks, so it is no use packing them and then… Continue reading Moving Progress

Heading for Home

The trip to Vancouver was not a vacation, but I did extend it a bit to spend time with my daughter and it was also nice to see some friends and relatives at the funeral, who I don’t see often.  But early Thursday morning it was time to get on the plane and head for… Continue reading Heading for Home

First Winter Storm of the Season

It is only the first and it is only a storm – certainly not a blizzard, but it is snowing and blowing today.  The temperature is a balmy -2C so nothing to complain about. The roads are a mess though and travel is not recommended with extremely reduced visibility on the highways.  The main streets… Continue reading First Winter Storm of the Season

A Little Bit of Paint and a Walk

Wow – another absolutely beautiful day here today.  After breakfast, I was thinking I should go for a long walk, but then realized that this would be a good day to have my balcony door wide open and paint my filing cabinet.  I have been planning on doing this for awhile- but it has been… Continue reading A Little Bit of Paint and a Walk

We’re Moved

My move – in pictures.  🙂 There is obviously much to do yet, but with all the boxes piled in the den, I can work through it while the rest of the apartment is semi decent looking.  The problem in the bedroom is that they could not get the bed frame downstairs without taking it… Continue reading We’re Moved

Peanut Butter Cookies

I have probably mentioned before that I am not a cook or a baker and I never actually follow recipes when I do attempt to make something. My friend Chardon, whom I have known online for many years, casually mentioned peanut butter cookies this morning on FaceBook and I started thinking I should make some.… Continue reading Peanut Butter Cookies
