About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Grade 7 Grad 2006

Here I am with my good friend and colleague Mary Beth at Grad night. I'll put up some more photos next week after the end-of-the-year Staff party. The evening's theme was "Hollywood" and they even had a "walk of fame" complete with red carpet, movie cameras, a giant Oscar, movie posters, etc. Tables were decorated with glittery gold fabric, feather boas and candles. It was a lovely evening and I'll always remember it. The kids seemed so grown up, especially the girls.

Hi Leslie,
It sounds like you had a very memorable evening. What a neat idea for grad night...a lot different than when I was in elementary school. I'll be checking back to see more photos next week.
Have a wonderful weekend girlfriend

Thx Willy, I hope to have a good day today,at least. At noon I have a blind date for coffee and then I'm going to my daughter's for dinner. Her hubby is away with the guys camping for the weekend so we'll have a great time with Noah. Hope you have a good weekend, too. See you soon, I hope. I'll email you.

ok leslie, noon time is past, so now can we hear about your blind date?

i like your school's grad nite celebration, especially the red carpet. what a great idea!

i'll check back for date details. *LOL*

Hi Sylvia - the blind date was a dud. Well...he was okay but I felt no "spark" and apparently he didn't either. This was a first: he said after almost an hour that he didn't know about these "personals" and we weren't a match - probably just him he said. So, no loss - just another toad in my book. LOL But thanks for asking.

I had a wonderful time at my daughter's. She'd invited me for dinner - just her and Noah who's now 2 1/2. I took a couple of gifts to Noah and after we'd had a lot of fun with those, my daughter said to Noah, "Okay, how about we give Gramma her present?" Well, I was stunned - she gave me a lovely leather journal with an "L" on the front as a retirement gift. But the best was the card and what she wrote on it. It made me cry - I guess I did okay as a Mom after all.

hi leslie, thanks for sharing. i haven't been on any dates yet, but i'm learning from others that if it doesn't work out, it's not to be taken personally. i guess that's true. everyone just won't be a match. i think it takes courage to go on a first date with someone new, but even more courage for a blind date.

what a great surprise from your daughter and grandson. it does make you feel good when your children, or even grandchildren, express to you how wonderful a person you are and have been in their lives. i know the leather journal is so beautiful, and something you will have to treasure always. have a peaceful rest tonite.
