Sue with her granddaughter Summer in her new helmet in Sidney, BC.
The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community.
Cindy and Tim's Emmy Lou in Nelson yesterday, oh my, just look at the snow still on the ground...we will be sending some warmth and sunshine your way soon!!!
Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend.
With the weather here in the past few weeks in the low to mid 80's, living outside is what the desert is all about. As nearly all of our newly found Canadians friends are leaving within the next few weeks, it has been lots of fun visiting back and forth with them sharing dinner and drinks. The interesting part is seeing how their back yards are set up for entertaining and using some of their ideas for your own.
This collection is from Pottery Barn.

These are some photos from the Country Living UK magazine which is one of my favourites. Cindy and I used to look for this magazine where ever we were, read it, share it, and decorate our gardens from some of the pages of this really interesting publication. Happy Spring.
My thanks to my dear Cindy for sending me her wonderful ceramic plates of us shopping, and a handpainted Easter Card....xoxox
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
My good friend Shirley sent me those Vancouver/Steveston while she was out cycling...Spring it already there.
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
I love Brighton Jewellery and jewellery in general, and here in AZ. there are quite a few Brighton stores, that keep luring an unsuspecting person in. Once you are in you might fall in love with a certain color or design, and of course they offer new design for every season...the shopping has definitely been fun here.
On a different note; The Gym...a place of great joy (yeah right) and torture...I never knew that arm muscles could get that sore...something to think about, I think it will improve when my attitude about going improves. Swimming and walking are much more my source of joy....
This afternoon we are going to the Ironhorse BeanBag Block party, look for new and funny photos over the next couple of days. We are hoping that the rain will stay away and it will be warmer than the 50 degree weather they have forcast.
Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
The Ya Ya girls went to the Pottery Barn Seminar this morning, and learned about table top decorating, and these are a few of the photos I took in the store. We also lucked out with the Nordstrom Make-Up/Frangrance Show...where we made out like Bandits...it was a very good morning shopping.
