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.

Tulips and Me

A random bit of information about me: my favourite flower is the white tulip. I always think that if I ever get married again, I'd carry a bouquet of white tulips tied together with raffia.

Josie did this meme and said if anyone wanted to do it, go ahead. So, since I'm too weary these days to think about too much else, I'll give it a try. You just might find out a few more random bits of info about me. You have to answer the questions with only one word and for someone like me, it's not as easy as you might think.

Oh come on, I know the rest of you caught that, so what if I am the only one that would ask. I'm from Jersey, I have an excuse.
