Family Traditions, November 27, 2022

Last week I spoke about Christmas traditions and perhaps starting new ones.  Last year I think I started a new tradition. Another Mary Janet LIVE on Facebook last Christmas, she was making Chocolate Covered Balls.  I had never made chocolate balls before. I asked my sister Dianne and her daughter Jill if they wanted to make them with me and they said yes.  We had so much fun, my sister Dianne asked if we wanted to do it again this year.  My first response was NO, it was a lot of...


Christmas (Magic), November 20, 2022

The other day I saw the perfect sunrise (above picture) and knew I would share it with you today.

What does Christmas mean to you?  Were your childhood memories good or not so good during the Christmas holidays?  Today do you struggle to have good Christmas memories? My wish for you is to be brave enough to make new happier memories.    The title of this blog is Christmas (Magic) as I believe Christmas is magic.  Everyone seems to be happier, there are more smiles on faces, the feeling I have around...


Remembrance, November 13, 2022

Remembrance day has come and gone and more than ever we need to not take our freedom for granted.  Those that continue to work on behalf of our country, I thank you.

Ghost Stories and Friends, November 06, 2022

I know Halloween has come and gone, but I have a ghost story to tell you. The above photo is of the Algonquin Resort, St. Andrews, New Brunswick.  It is as beautiful at night as it is in the day.  I had attended the annual Quoddy Loopers Hook-In yesterday in St. Andrews, so much fun but more on that in a minute.  We drove up to St. Andrews the night before so that we could do a little touring of this wonderful little sea side town.  I had never been to...


New Friends and Connections, October 30, 2022

Last week I was fortunate to attend the Island Matters annual retreat on PEI.  This lovely group of ladies and gents were simply a delight.  The PEI folks had not ever played the Right, Left, Center game.  So we played and had great fun.  The below picture is of Diane Benoit, who won all the wool.  Does she look excited or what?

Lots of laughs and I would highly recommend attending any rug hooking retreats you can! It continually amazes me how...
