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.

How many of you remember lying back on the grass in the summertime and gazing up at the clouds? What did you see? Did you let your imagination go wild and watch the circus animals marching into town, sea creatures, bunny rabbits, and characters from fairy tales?
I was driving home this radiant spring evening just as the sun was smoothly sliding towards the east. I allowed my imagination to emerge, and I observed the shapes that the fluffy clouds took. First, I saw one of the three blind mice, probably fleeing the old lady with the carving knife. Then, I saw Nemo! Well, it was either Nemo or an orca with an underbite. Next came the Easter bunny, all fluffy and white hopping down the bunny trail. To my left, I noticed the big bad wolf, looking a bit grey from fright and tail flowing out behind him, running away from the lumberjack. Finally, an Air Canada jumbo jet, carrying a full load of tourists, headed south towards the warm sandy shores of Mexico.
What a wonderful drive. Sigh...

I love clouds Leslie, forever lost in clouds, that one you have there, I see one of my dogs, baulking, been turned on by a sheep, she has propped..

I love the light that gets behind them, illuminates them...the sky and clouds and stars and the moon are a damn good reason to get more horizontal...great idea!

Thjis is something to do with purple brains? no?


Come to Australia, you will love the light and sun and color of the skies, if nothing else, but you will love all the other stuff too...we can have lunch at the little quaint old Pub near the native animal park, I promise they wont have kangaroo on the menu..

I work with children and a cloud-filled sky is a perfect opportunity to lie down on the grass in the playground and point out the fish and bunnies I see. Life is good when I can do that for a living.

Hello Leslie....It is so relaxing to look at the shapes in clouds isn't it!!

We have thunderstorms coming in later today with high winds. But once that all calms down, I may just venture out with camera in hand and see what "cloud shapes" I can find!!
