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.

Robbie Loves Starbucks

Oh yummy! Mommy bought Starbucks!

Humph! This is hard work getting the dregs!
That was exhausting! I better take a nap. I love Mommy's chair.

Leslie, what the sam hill have you done to your poor little dog now? Hah.

The photo of Katherine is at Third Beach, my favourite beach. We spent the day there a couple of days ago. She's a beach bunny.

Hi Leslie...Robbie is adorable! I rarely go to Starbucks because I make the best coffee right here at home. Now I'm off to visit Josie...

leslie said...

Robbie LOVES coffee and begs for the dregs whenever I have some. He looked so funny trying to get the last few drops that I just had to grab the camera and catch him in action. LOL

I love Third Beach, too. It's a great place for kids what with all the play equipment there. When do the kids go home?

Hi, Leslie. It might have to wait until you get back before we get together. But then you can tell me all about it and show me pictures. I want to see lots of pictures.

My daughter and her husband are going through the worst phase of their divorce right now, so I am keeping my weekends free to help them out with the kids. It's so tough. My heart breaks for them.

Josie

leslie said...

I'm really sorry to hear that the divorce is not going to be easy. But your daughter is very lucky that you will look after the children while she gets things organized. I will definitely be taking lots of pictures and will fill you in on all the details when I get back.

HeiressChild said...

leslie, sorry to hear about your friend's friend. i believe in giving people a chance. things do come up in people's lives. i'm sure he'll call the first moment he can. you may need to give him some comfort, but i think you're good in that department.

my word is tvntkw - tv in the know

leslie said...

Hi Sylvia, oh I will definitely give him another chance. He seemed sincere when he called and I do believe he should have been with his friend rather than meet me for a first time. Have fun with Willy.
Oh man! jbhgzq

Hi Leslie,
Am just bumming around the blogs while I have a brake here at work.
The pictures of Robbie are adorable! Doesn't coffee make him hyper? He looks like he owns your seat and is in dog heaven on it.

Hope you understand my e-mail.

I am not clever enough to join into your word game, so a simple
Gute Nacht!

Hi Ellen, yep I got your email and appreciate the reply. Robbie only gets to lick the cup when I'm done so he doesn't get any more hyper than he already is. LOL He loves to lie out in the sun, especially on my chair and in the house, he follows the sunbeams around so he can luxuriate in the warmth. Good to hear from you.

Hmmm...vtfzi (vat fizzy? sounds like something Willy'd like.

HeiressChild said...

hey ellen, no cleverness needed, my dear. we're just using the word verification and having some fun with it. we try to sound out a word or words that the letters could be spelling out. it's silly, but we're having fun with it. go ahead next time and give it a try. you can do it!

leslie, i just got thru saying "next week this time i'll be in calif. hard to believe how fast time goes by!

i remember when you all were first making your plans for the cruise, and here it is, only 2 wks away. i know you're going to have so much fun. i know shopping was fun for you. congratulations on your weight loss. that's a great accomplishment! happy sailing in 2 wks.!

my word = ckvkfjz

Josie said...

Hi, Leslie. You know, you will still be able to post to your blog when you're on your cruise. That way we can all go along with you. I am so excited for you. You are going to have to much fun.

leslie, you sound like me being fashion-ignorant. i still call my daughter in california to ask if this will go with that. she'll say, i don't know, i'm not there." i'll then say, "ok, but will it go?" she says, "go with what you feel." so that's what i'm learning to do, and it must be working because people give me compliments. it was real easy to just depend on her when she lived here.

most times, i'm casually dressed, and don't have a problem with that. it's when i have to get "dolled up" that i'm not sure.

SylviaI had my sister over to look at my new things, and even she said about one top that I tend to gravitate towards "granny" tops. I didn't think so at all, and when I showed her the earrings I got to go with it, she agreed that it would be "okay, I guess." LOL And my daughter wants me to wear high high heels because she says my legs are great. But it's too hard on my back so I'm opting instead for heels about 1 1/2 to 2 inches instead of the spikes she wants. I finally found a pair of white capris (well they're actually mid-calf length) that will be great on the ship. Size 12!!!!!! Omigosh, I'm hoping to get to an 8 one of these days. If God wills it. LOL

Josie I know you can use the internet on the ship, but it is VERY expensive, so I may not post anything until I get back. And I will hopefully have lots and lots of photos to show you. Umberto will be posting though on Richard's site (YES it will be functioning then) so maybe you will catch a glimpse of me on a table top one night. ROTFLOL (I actually did that when I was about 20...and a bit buzzed.)

cwsonmir??? am I buzzed now???

Yep, I guess so. Let's try that again. igtmx

Hi Leslie...
Nice clock :)
I'm excited for you to be going on the cruise...take lots of pictures and tell us all about it when you return. Hey...maybe RR will have some internet service set up for everyone who wants to post something? That would be nice.

Hi, Leslie, you must be getting so excited about your cruise. Details, I want details. And pictures.

Josie

Why do you always have the longest word verifications?

Josie said...

Leslie, I love the clock. My only question is - what time zone are you in?

Josie

leslie said...

Pacific, silly! What one are you in? LOL

Too Cute!!

Looks like you will be going on a cruise??!! Good for you, and Congrats on the size 12!!! Way to go!!

Josie said...

Hi, Leslie. I won't be blogging for a while. Take care, and have fun on your trip.

Josie

P.S. Your clock says the time is 3:34. Should that be right?

Josie said...

Well, my blog is back, but I deleted the one I had before, so hopefully you can link to my new one through here. Arrggghhh.

HeiressChild said...
