My Cindy is here...

Cindy and I went for a walk after dinner,

we were laughing so hard, I just had to take the photo.

Cindy is taking some of my stuff back to Nelson to sell in our booth.

All full day of thrifting is planned for today!

I wonder what treasures we will find?



Beautiful early morning light..

It was already so warm and clear at

5:30 this morning.

Only the birds were out, getting insects and worms to feed their young.

I love the stillness of this part of the day.



Making Granola....

A few simple ingredients makes

the most tasty breakfast treat.

I used to make granola years ago.

Christa was here and asked if I had

some granola.

I didn't then, I do now,


please come back!





Garden Peonies...

Just a few of these beauties can

bring joy into my day.

I love how they look in these watercolour photos.




Remembering Marlene...

It was a sad phone call early this morning from my brother Heinz.

His wife, our sister-in-law,


passed away last night.

She was a well loved nurse in Williams Lake.

She had only been retired 5 years before

cancer stole her life away.

We were childhood friends, then she married Heinz and they lived

away in Williams Lake most of their lives.

She will be truly missed by Heinz, her boys, their partners,

her Mom, her many friends, as well as by our family.


Visiting us at our home in AZ. She loved this photo.

Here we are in the front row, 1957, when we were only 7.

Marlene is wearing the dress, I am next to her,we are holding hands.

Heinz is standing next to her.

They were married June 20, 1970.

Her Dad Warren was our bus driver.

Dec. 27, 1949 - May 16, 2015









Our afternoon walk...

It was good to walk out the stiffness

after my two step tumble.

It was so warm here this afternoon.

It always feels like

is May Long Weekend is the

true first weekend of summer.

I have been playing wth another new app called


It is more like a line drawing.

The other one is Waterlogue.

Can you see the difference?

Here are a few photos I took today

as well as some on our walk.
