Feeling Powerless

We had an interesting experience last week. A massive storm nearby, which fortunately didn’t impact our community directly, knocked out power to a large area. That impact did include our community and surrounding area. When it first went out in the evening, we expected it back on quickly, as usually happens. Not this time. It... Continue Reading →

Paddleboarding on the Sea of Cortes

There’s no better way to start the day than floating on the beautiful waters of the Sea of Cortes. I’m fortunate to be able to paddleboard regularly in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, located on the southern tip of Baja California. Mar de Cortes is also known as Sea of Cortez, and is named after the...

A Twist on Tortilla Soup

One of the classic dishes you’ll often find in Mexico is tortilla soup. There are a multitude of versions of this dish. We’ve had it made only with broth and served with toppings like avocados and tortilla strips. We’ve had a version with chicken in it, and a version with beef. I decided to try... Continue Reading →

A Day On The Lake

Those who love to fish, love it a lot. Some love it so much, they build a business around it. That's true of our neighbours, Tom and Dorothy, who have built the guiding business Sask Landing Fishing Adventures. They take customers on tours and fishing expeditions on Lake Diefenbaker, and we were fortunate to be... Continue Reading →

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...

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 →

Basking on a boat

As someone who loves the water, there’s something special about being on a boat in that water. I love to swim, snorkel, even just lounge on the beach near the water. I like to sit on the deck and look at the water; just looking even relaxes me. I am very blessed to spend the summer living... Continue Reading →

Lessons from Leonard

Last year, when the great Leonard Cohen passed away, a refrain from one of his popular songs was often cited – one that has had me thinking about it since:                Ring the bells that still can ring / Forget your perfect offering /          ... Continue Reading →
