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.

Coming Up for Air

I just had a glorious weekend and I know now L's a keeper. He cooks, cleans up as he goes, gives great back rubs, and holds me up when we're out walking in the snow. Friday night, after a Christmas concert, I was treated to homemade Italian spaghetti sauce over spaghetti with a fresh baguette to dip in the extra sauce. L put all the leftover sauce (five large containers) in the freezer for me to use when I come home from the hospital and totally cleaned the kitchen for me.
Saturday we took a drive down to Centennial Beach, mainly to go for a brisk walk, but it was SO cold and windy that we ended up driving around Tsawwassen and Ladner looking at the sights. Then we had an early dinner at a local Japanese restaurant where L got me to try raw tuna! I didn't want to disappoint, so I tasted it, but frankly it tasted like nothing to me. I didn't care for the texture so I don't think I'd order it for myself. I did enjoy the raw salmon, though. After dinner, we watched a movie, "Black Book," that I'd already seen but just knew he's like - he did. It started to snow while we were watching the movie, so we decided to go for a walk in the snow - so romantic - to check out the Christmas lights on a neighbouring street. When we came back, we watched 2 episodes of Boston Legal from Season 2. L had not followed the show when it was on TV, so is now renting all the episodes. He roars with laughter at Denny Crane.
So then today, he took me out for Chinese food and I sampled "hot and sour soup" which was something new to me - it sure would clear the sinuses if you had a bad cold! Also, after our beef and vegetables in black bean sauce, we had fun reading our fortunes to each other, adding "in bed" at the end of the fortune. No late night tonight as L has to be at work by 10 pm but there's always next weekend.

Who says there's no romance after age 60?

Oh wow, this is super awesome, Leslie. I am just so excited for you.
You make me so happy to know you have found someone so special to share your life with you right now, and to make you feel so good about yourself.
Enjoy it and know that you are totally an inspiration to those out there that are sitting at home, your age thinking that life is over and that they will never find another love out there!!!
You GO GIRL!!

Mengapa kutil bisa tumbuh di alat kelamin pria serta bagaimana mengobatinya, kutil tumbuh di sekitar kelamin pria bisa tumbuh pada batang penis pria, ujung penis pria, pangkal penis pria bahkan bisa tumbuh di sekitar anus pria. hal ini karena di sebabkan oleh virus yang bernama HPV (human papilloma Virus) sebelum melakukan pengobatan terlebih dahulu akan saya jelaskan mengenai virus HPV ini sehingga nanti kedepannya khsusunya untuk kaum pria dapat menjaga diri agar terhindar dari penyakit ini.
