Canada Day & Independence Day Weekend, July 03, 2022

 

We are very blessed to live where we do. A long weekend for most here in Canada as well as the USA.  Be kind to one another, we live in great countries.

The above photo may not be Prince Charles and Camilla but we rug hooked on the same piece that they did when we visited Quidi Vidi Village, Newfoundland last week.  In the photo is Jean Fawthrop, Lynne O'Brien Lines and Carole Fullerton.  These girls are my royalty, we had such a lovely time, they are the best!

I was...


Creativity, June 19, 2022

As a maker of 'things', we know we can use our imagination to create anything we would like and sometimes from everyday things. I am always impressed with how people come up with alternate ways to get things done when they don't have what is traditionally used, for example, a sprinkler hose.  You don't have one, take a plastic water bottle, poke holes in the bottom of it, tape it onto the end of a water hose, viola, a sprinkler of sorts.  The picture above is my granddaughter Sophie.  I had...


COVID, June 12, 2022

I know we are all very tired of the pandemic and restrictions, we've been poked and jabbed, isolated, masked some hospitalized, and a lot of deaths.  The above picture popped up on my twitter account, titled BREAKING NEWS, NS Variant, by Andy Bowers!  Until I opened and saw the mans face within the little virus circles, I was worried for a moment, 'oh no, now what'!  It made me smile.  I didn't know how to exchange his face for mine so left it as it was. I have spent the last...


Sights & Sounds of Nova Scotia, June 05, 2022

My daughter has a friend visiting from the UK and yesterday we drove around Advocate, NS and visited Cape D'or.  The above picture is off the point there at Cape D'or.  Beautiful landscape we have all around us here in Nova Scotia. I love seeing how green everything is, the leaves and blossoms are all out. We went to Spencer's Island as well, walked on the beach, the water was so calm. We then went to Five Islands, enjoyed some seafood.  Was a fabulous day.

I worked a bit more on...


Compassion, May 29, 2022

In the mist of all that is going on in our world today, adding one more tragedy may be more than some can bear. We need to show compassion to those suffering, the victims, the school, the police, health care workers and each other.  We don't always show the world what is going on inside of us. Tell those you love that you love them, know you are loved no matter how hard it gets.  Remind yourself of the 'good' all around us, if we choose to see.  Above is my...
