April Filled with family, friends, flights and fine food, April is a difficult month to beat no matter how hard you try! Visit with my Mom (92) before flying to Hong Kong. In HK with our son, Creighton, Charling and dog, Kuro (under the table)! After three weeks in HK, we had a 2-night rest… Continue reading What’s Been On Your Calendar in April/May 2023?

What’s On Your Bookshelf May 2023?
I was on my Blogging Break in April and missed last month's #WOYBS. As I managed to sneak in a few books while travelling (especially during my 13-hour flights to and from Hongkong), I have lots to catch up on. I've sorted these reads by my star ratings. While all books listed have received much… Continue reading What’s On Your Bookshelf May 2023?
What’s On Your Bookshelf – March 2023?
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. Although snow in March is just plain wrong, the cold weather did allow me to indulge in some awesome books.… Continue reading What’s On Your Bookshelf – March 2023?
What’s Been On Your Calendar in February, 2023?
What have you been up to this past month? Here's what's been happening in my corner of the world. Travel: LV: Richard and I spent the first week of February in Las Vegas, staying at The Strat (package deal with AirCanada). Despite the hotel's mixed (but extremely witty) reviews, we found it comfortable and hassle-free. As… Continue reading What’s Been On Your Calendar in February, 2023?
What’s On Your Plate: Greek Baked Vegetables (Briam)
Recently I joined another book club (I know, I know!) This one is focused on reading, reviewing and preparing-sharing one recipe each month or so (depending on our schedules). Cookbook Confidential is led by Bernadette from New Classic Recipes. Each month, book club members read the same cookbook. We then each prepare one of the recipes, share… Continue reading What’s On Your Plate: Greek Baked Vegetables (Briam)

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. Without this commitment, I would not have had as rich of an experience with my intentions for 2022. Word Cloud… Continue reading And That’s A Wrap!

What’s On My Plate: A Divisive Issue
Recently, there has been much online debate over the flood of personal food pics on social media. This caused me some reflection. As my long-suffering husband will gladly confirm, I take heaps of food photos. Once when it was suggested he keep a food diary to deal with a potential allergy, he said, "I don't… Continue reading What’s On My Plate: A Divisive Issue
What’s (Typically) On My Plate
For last month's WOYP, I showcased a variety of the meals and snacks that we had eaten while in Banff and surrounding area. If you caught that post, it brightly displayed heavily cheesed pizzas (yup, more than one), a variety of meat dishes and a very decadent marshmallow donut (that honestly was Creighton's). Not to… Continue reading What’s (Typically) On My Plate
