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.

Monochrome Monday

Looking back, it seems I've been remiss in contributing to Monochrome Mondays for about 6 months now. Ah well, most of you know I went through major back surgery and have recently become engaged. So hopefully you'll forgive me - I never forgot you all but have just been trying to recover from everything that's been going on.

Thanks, Aileni, for keeping this going. Hope you like my current contribution, actually taken by my fiance when we were at White Lake, near Shuswap Lake in central BC this past June.

Wonderful ripples. You've certainly returned with a bang, and with good news to share to boot :).
