October Deep Thoughts…on plants, and plant based foods

Where did September and then October go to?    In September we’re blessed with a beautiful month.  So will the arrival of cold be a big shock?   January seems about right for the arrival of the first cold.  In preparation for the cold, I have been moving my geraniums inside so I can enjoy them in […]

It’s My Birthday – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…and take advantage of the end of summer vegetable season

We have been hearing a lot lately about getting rid of single use plastics.  While it sounds easy, I don’t think it will be.  Being told by politicians who jet all over at the drop of a hat to drum up votes not to use plastic straws, just seems a bit hypocritical! People I know […]

Where has July gone? Not long ago we were celebrating Canada Day and the month stretched ahead of us. And now it’s over, which means we are half-way through summer. Suzie and I managed a few walks down by the lake and then it got to be too hot, so we have been going to […]

Finally, flowers are blooming.  The world is beginning to fill with colour again replacing the grey left behind by winter.  I think the arrival of summer lifts our spirits after a long cold winter, and spring this year as well! As we drive around, we see the beautiful front yards that home owners present, not […]

Ramblings and Reflections

I think that sweet little old ladies should be able to gripe occasionally. So here goes! If I hear one more person say that something is “to die for” (such ‘that apple pie is to die for’ or ‘that purple dress is to die for’) I think I will scream.  Really? You would be willing […]

Is it climate change? April showers brought flooding, but soon May flowers will be sprouting

April was a very wet month here in Ontario.  I hope that means there are going to be lots of flowers in May.  The grass is turning green so there is a bit of colour, and when we add the early flowers to that the colours should brighten our spirits. There sure has been a […]

March – Cruising Through Winter, Weather Dogs, Bus Cancellations, and Saint David’s Day

I’m not very happy with the weather gods! We’ve had enough winter with its cold and snow and ice. When March arrives, we should be thinking of crocus and tulips and daffodils. In the middle of February, I went on my first Caribbean cruise in about ten years so I missed a couple weeks of […]

Technology Then and Now

As I add on the years and become less nimble, I find that I need to be quicker on my feet as I dodge people who are more interested in looking at their phones than where they are going.  Is their left hand going to mutate so that it is permanently bent to better fit […]

Enjoying The Traditions of Fall

posted Friday, November 2, 2018

by: in Boomers

Fall presents us with many different faces so that we don’t have to think about what the following months will bring.   It comes in with the beginning of the glorious colours that we look forward to each year.  By the end of the month many of the trees are clothed in only fall colours.  At […]

September ‘Daze’

posted Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Having gone back to school at the beginning of September after somewhere in the neighbourhood of fifty years, there is a certain nostalgia as I see school buses through my kitchen window on the first day back at school.  There is something special about a brand new sharpener, pencils, and pencil crayons.  Aren’t new notebooks […]
