About Me

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.

Butterflies

So as you probably surmised from my previous post, I have reconnected with my old former fiance. As things do happen, we ended up going our separate ways, but now are starting to date again after spending four hours together last Saturday catching up. We've talked on the phone this week for hours, too, and that's why there has been no time for blogging.
Tomorrow, we're going on a photo safari up the mountain to Lynn Valley to see the waterfall. One problem - it's going to be raining and I have no rain gear. But he said he has extra Gortex jackets and will bring one for me to wear. Now he's 6'3" and I'm 5'7" so I'm sure I'll have to fold the sleeves up several times so as not to drag them in the mud. L very kindly inquired as to whether I could walk that far since I told him I have to have back surgery in January. I figure it's a good way to get a back rub outta him later. Right?
Anyway, in anticipation of him coming back for dinner afterwards, I've cleaned the house from top to bottom - dusting, swiffering, vacuuming (hoovering for my Brit friends), polished mirrors, cleaned the toilets and sinks, cleaned up my office in case we want to upload our photos, baked cookies, shopped for chipotle citrus marinated chicken breasts and have all the vegies ready to roast. I even bought him some beer that is cooling nicely in the fridge. All the candle holders have new tealites in them and there's a log in the fireplace just waiting to be lit.
This dating business is hard work and I'm wondering if it's worth it. Well, no I do think it's worth it. How do I know? Because I've had butterflies in my tummy all week waiting for Saturday to come. Wish us luck and stay tuned.

Wow that is amazing, no wonder you have butterflies..How did you find each other..wonder why you parted in the first place..

I wouldn't worry about the Gortex jacket :-) if I had to borrow one of my husbands then that would be a problem..He is 6'2 and I am 5'1 and a 1/2 ha ha ha..

Good luck and have fun x

Oh, I loved this! It seems you and I spent our entire day cleaning.
Yes, it's hard doing all that work, isn't it? Especially when the back is bothering you and in my case, my ankle. Or my knees. Take your pick. But it's so rewarding when it's all finished, isn't it?
And YOU get a special treat at the end. (I didn't mean anything dirty by that last statement).

Or did I?

Hmmmmm . . .

That's the trouble with us girls - we always want ALL the DETAILS. Not sure if you're gonna get ALL. *grin*

Bcwillow said...

I love it Leslie! I cleaned my house top to bottom today too but it was for an Usborne Book party... nothing like the early stages of dating where you get the giggles and that fun feeling in your stomach when it does flip flops. Hope it goes well!

Okay, it's 11:00 am here now and he'll be here in an hour. Plan A is to go to Lynn Valley for photos, but Plan B is to go to Horseshoe Bay to introduce me to his best friends...hmmm....and then he's coming here for dinner!

Oh the butterflies!!!!

Butterflies are good... I still get them every weekend and Ive been seeing Geoff for 2 years now :-)

Hope you have a great time and many butterfly days :-)

peppylady said...

I too understand why you have butterflies.
But it does sound like a fun outing.

Sound like you also believe a way to man heart is though his stomach.

Coffee is on.

Ohhh . . . Today's Saturday. Hope the butterflies are resting peacefully on pretty flowers. Looking forward to how the day went. And . . . does he read your blog?
