Just four more days until it is 'officially' Spring in Canada. I must confess that I spent much of early March curled up beside my fireplace reading, writing, and watching snow descend upon Vancouver Island.

What’s On Your Plate: Greek Baked Vegetables (Briam)

All Good Things Must Come to an End…Or Must They?
For the past six Wednesdays, my friend Deb and I have been taking a course together, which we usually follow by having leftovers for lunch at my place. And, for the past 12 months, we've been playing the Universal Yums Snack Box Game once a month (or, in the case of our crazy summer, several… Continue reading All Good Things Must Come to an End…Or Must They?
And That’s A Wrap!
Thank you to Sue of Women Living Well After 50 for initiating a monthly linkup to regularly update progress on our Words of the Year (WOTYs) and for asking Jo, Debbie and me to cohost.
