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.

A Day Off

It's amazing how much one can get done on a day off if you put your mind to it. So far, we've gone into the city and ordered "him" a suit, extra pair of pants, and two shirts for work (all paid for by employer); got an estimate on two new back tires for "his" car (a great price, btw); and looked at tile for the bathroom tub surround and floor and arranged for the tiler to come over tomorrow to give us an estimate. We came home, had a nice lunch, and while he went out to work on fixing one of his headlights (condensation inside) and waxing the roof of the car, I put a couple of ads on Craig's List. And because it's a stat holiday here, I don't have any students! Yay!
Oh yeah, on Saturday Josie and I went over to West Vancouver for lunch and a bit of shopping. We drove home through the western half of Stanley Park and stopped at Ferguson Point for a photo op. It was a good day and we really appreciated all the cherry blossoms, but I realised just how tired I was when I got home with that "I can't get enough air" feeling. I guess the old bod is still recuperating and I continue to have to take it easy even if the mind is willing. *sigh* Enjoy the photos and click to enlarge.

Leslie, you look so happy and young in the lovely photo. Being In Love suits you!

Keep pampering yourself while your body continues to heal. And keep enjoying your glorious Springtime.

Autumn here has been very kind here over Easter.

Care and huggles, Michelle in Wellington

I think you are doing marvellously to be able to cram so much into a day so soon and you are looking wonderful. x
