Hello all. How are you doing? We're doing fine here. I missed the last couple of weeks as we went into Vancouver to see my 3 year old grandson who was visiting from Edmonton and got behind in household stuff and it's taken me until now to catch up! Well, we survived an entire week … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Coffee Tablescape

Hello friends. Yesterday, I had the most lovely Sunday that I've had in a long time.

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

HellOoo Vegetarian lovers (and some meat lovers too). I hope you've all had a good start to the week. Are you all ready for Christmas? I can finally say that I am.

Hello all. I hope you've all had a good start to the week. I finally got my Christmas tree up and a few decorations.

This year's theme is blue white … Continue reading Christmas Decorations are Finally Up!

Christmas fir trees

HellOoooo, how are you all? Is everyone ready for Christmas? Me neither. I'm very late putting up my Christmas tree and decorations.
