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.

Family Blessings

I feel so BLESSED today because both my daughters, my son-in-law and my grandson came for dinner last night. It was very casual but it's not often we can all get together because of everyone's work schedules. Daughter #1 had requested macaroni and cheese (the recipe handed down from my mother) and I added salad and corn on the cob to the menu. For dessert I made a no-bake fruit smoothie cheesecake. We were so stuffed that we went to the little park in my subdivision so Noah could ride his bike around and play hide and seek with me. It's a little game we started a few months ago and we have a ball hiding on each other in the bushes. The park is really very little, but to a 3 1/2 year old, it's HUGE! Noah can ride his bike without training wheels now and he thinks it's great to go over the speed bumps. His helmet stayed on his head almost the entire time they were here, covering up his gorgeous curls but you can see them in the photo of him eating his ice cream cone. Anyway, here's the family. Hope you enjoy my memories.

This is Jaclyn.
Here are Jason, Noah, and Jamie.
Noah stops for a moment to pose for his Gramma.
He sure loves chocolate ice cream!
Daddy keeps a watchful eye as Noah rides in my little park.Uh oh...Noah has a little spill but Daddy's there and all's okay.
Nothing stops this kid when it comes to biking - a chip off the old block.

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.

I love Jaclyn's hair...! My goodness, I have never seen a girl who looked more like her mother than she does. She's your image.
