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.

H is for HOME

HELLO - it's me...anyone else love Adele as much as I do?  I have 2 of her 3 CDs and my grandchildren sing along with me to all her songs.  I was thinking of doing my entire post about Adele and her music, but then I thought about the word HOME - my new home to which I'll be moving this week (Wednesday, in fact).  This will be another new adventure for me and I'm so looking forward to living in this new place.
After all I've been through in the past several years, I've decided I love myself the way I am, and I hope and dream that the best is yet to come.  I'm ready to nest in what I just might refer to as my "tree house," snuggled in behind some evergreen trees with two bay windows where I can look out on the stars and moon on clear nights.  I'll be able to see the full moon when it appears and hope to get some decent shots of it right from my bedroom window.
Because Wednesday is moving day, I won't be able to visit everyone as quickly as I normally do.  My new internet provider isn't coming to set everything up until Friday, so until then, have a wonderful week and if I don't visit you this week, I'm hoping that next week I'll be able to do "I is for the Interior" with photos of the new place inside.

With HUGE thanks to Denise Nesbitt, the creator of ABC Wednesday, and to our honourable administrator Roger.  Also, thanks to the harmonious team of helpers who hunt you all down to give you their most heartening comments.

Home.... where the heart is..as the saying goes... maybe just a saying to a lot of people but to me its everyday-awareness-feeling... there were my heart feels right, there i feel at home

Good luck with the house move. It can be hard work, but worth it in the end.

Moving is terrible, but having moved will be great!

What a great choice for the letter H!

I like the quotes about the home.
Not every house is a home.

Joy said...

Hope everything went smoothly and you have had time to enjoy the view out of your new home's windows.

Good luck with the move and settling in. Look forward to the 'I-interior' photos!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Your new home sounds delightful! I like the image of you sitting in a bay window viewing the night sky. And, all the life you'll be able to see in, around, and beyond the trees.
