Gratefulness, today

I had the pleasure of helping some amazing women this week. These ladies have identified the needs of seniors in a rural area, and have responded, each in their own way, to help. From raising funds, shopping for necessities, distributing, cooking, and visiting with the seniors, they have each stepped up to support their community.... Continue Reading →

Starting the day off right

There are many resources expounding the benefits of a morning routine. These include working out first thing, practicing meditation or yoga, journaling. Don’t check emails, take time for yourself, make your coffee (that’s mine) …the list goes on. Do the same thing every morning and you will see benefits. The reality is, everybody is different...

Doukhobor Borscht

There’s something special about homemade soup, especially when it’s made with fresh garden vegetables. My friend Cheryl introduced me to this variation on borscht that I had never experienced before. She made such a delicious batch, I had to get the recipe and try it at home. I’m not sure my version was as good... Continue Reading →

50 years…wiser?

It won't be long now until I  pass what is considered a major milestone – turning 50 years old. It’s kind of unreal to think that I am that old…that in fact I likely have fewer days in front of me than behind me. It doesn’t feel any different, actually, other than it hurts when...

Bird nerd

I am a self-confessed bird nerd. I love to watch birds, marvel at their colours, their ingenuity, their beautiful songs, their ability to fly! One of my favourite aspects of spring is watching migrating birds return. The winter birds are soon joined by those who go south for the winter, as week after week, new... Continue Reading →

Time Marches On

When I was younger, I am sure I scoffed at “older” people who talked about time passing quickly. After all, I couldn’t wait to go to high school. I couldn’t wait to turn 16 so I could drive. I couldn’t wait to be 18 to go to the bar. I couldn’t wait to be done... Continue Reading →

Road trip to La Paz

A road trip with new experiences is always fun. So we set out to explore the city of La Paz and area and spent three days enjoying new adventures. La Paz is the capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. The city is located in a beautiful bay, and the popular centre... Continue Reading →

Beer battered fish

One of the wonderful delights of living in Cabo San Lucas is the abundance of fresh fish and seafood. Almost every restaurant offers some selection of fish caught that day (catch-of-the-day), and other locally caught delights like shrimp, calamari, lobster, octopus, scallops…the list goes on. We have enjoyed dining out and sampling these different delicacies,... Continue Reading →
