I am so sorry that I have not written......
I see that I am apologizing more to myself out of guilt for not blogging. I am going through a period of unrest let's say.......my 96 year old grandmother is on her last legs, the last years has been hard for her and it is time, she does not de... Read more

Another beautiful day,

Definitely got lots of exercise and feel great. It is supposed to storm tonight, lightening and all. I like thunder and lightening, it is exciting.
Hoping tomorrow that the s... Read more

Not looking for anyone to feel sorry for me, just am a little frustrated.....
with this bloody weather, finally we get a day with sun, and would you know it, 65 km/hr. winds!
I thought my garden was all going to blow away, lots of broken stems. Trees were bending so far in front of our house I thought they were goin... Read more
Today was just dreary, humid, overcast.....
no sun yet again!
Oh well, went to my girlfriends tonight to weed her garden (I'm looking after it while she is away for two weeks), anyways, got some rhubarb and the rest of the spinach, some lettuce. I am stoked about the garden goodies.... Read more

It's still chucking it down!
Poor gardens......they just need sun NOW! I hope everyone's weekend was wonderful. I am feeling a little lazy, it's kind of hard to get moving when it is so dreary and you just want to enjoy outside, but you can't because it looks a little funn... Read more
Well it's raining again!
I had a good 2 hour ride prior to the rain, so it was all good!
I am currently looking after my girlfriend's potted plants and garden, I need to get in her garden today and weed.....the weeds certainly like all the rain. I guess I just nee... Read more
Well it was supposed to be 25 above today, right through to the weekend.....
and about 1:30 this afternoon the clouds rolled in and opened up. It poured again! I do believe I am going to have to build some sort of canopy for my tomatoes and peppers.....they are just getting too much water and not enough sun. It just k... Read more
Today I read Chef Meg's "Roasted Beet Salad" and I remember......
one of my favourites! A very healthy and tasty way to eat your beets....I actually crave this!
When the beets come out of the garden, they get par roasted or steamed and packaged in zip locks so I can make this all year long. I don't real... Read more
Well....I am up and raring, okay ready to go.....
off to work that is, the rain seemed to settle some of the fluff in the air and hence the reason I feel so much better, eyes are a little soothed or perhaps it is the medication and eye drops. Whatever the reason, I am liking it!
I am plan... Read more
I am staying home sick today......
I woke up at 3:00 and had to feel my way to the washroom......my eyes were "glued" shut and my head felt like it was going to explode. Anyways, I am going to have a hot bath and go back to bed and rest. I am going to drink plenty of fluids and... Read more
Well it wasn't quite 3 hours, only 2 hours, 45 minutes.....
Not a bad guess, with the wind and the traffic, all the overpasses that I needed to take and all the wind, I feel really good about the ride. It did my body good, great as a matter of fact. I think I need to take this ride way more often. I s... Read more
