Getting ready....

This week I have spent my time well, tidying up the house,

the outdoor pots, cutting back any perennials,

putting the garden to rest as we are getting ready to head to

Arizona for the winter,

on Saturday.

Usually by this time we would have been there already.Going a bit later has given us more time to enjoy these last few weeks of October.

It used to feel strange not seeing all our personal stuff for nearly 6 months,but because we have another home, different friends,

it is always an adventure.

We take a couple days to drive there, as it is 1662 miles between our two homes. We always try to take a different route,

but after 10 years, we know most of the roads quite well.

We are always in the lookout to see something we might have missed in previous trips.








Out and about....

Walking along the lakeshore in Peachland is one of our favorite places for a brisk walk.

I think it is because

"Bliss Bakery"

is there.

Their baking is amazing, a great reward every once in a while.





Warm and wonderful weekend...

Record highs all over BC.

Happy to enjoy being outside, finishing up cleaning up the outside

planters and flower pots.

Claire spent a sunny afternoon at

Art Knapps Garden Centre

enjoying the rides.

She sent me a sweet little emojis texts.

Love this little girl!



My love for travel....

I collect globes to satisfy my love

Thanks to my Cindy for

her generosity

over the years in helping me


my collection.




A quiet day to read some crafting books
as well as crochet a rock.
I love how quickly theses small projects come together.
Place several together, or simply place
one in a birds nest as I did.
Sweet and simple

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday to my dear friend Shirley

currently trekking in Bhutan.
