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.

Y is for YEAR

The year 2016 brought many changes to my life - some good, some not so good.  Regardless, I am looking forward to what 2017 might bring - better health I hope (especially regarding my back as I will be facing the prospect of another back surgery), more travel (dependant on the back situation), and making new friends.  One thing I am happy about is that 2016 brought me to a new home.  I love my condo and have already made some good friends here. 

As this is a busy time of year for everyone, I will keep this brief.  Just would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and may all your wishes come true.  Blessings to all.

Hi Leslie, first of all, the link in the y-prompt is the one of x instead the one of y .... maybe its wise to change it?

2016 indeed was a very heavy year.... backpain is killing, I know all about it since I broke it when I was 16... inoperable by the way but I truly hope that yours will be perfect after that next operation. Wishing and praying for it.

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday / _ Week

I am glad that you are happy in your lovely new home.
I hope that your back will not become worse. Mine is damaged by arthrosis and I need a walking aid for walks.
May the new year bring us real peace on earth. How much longer before the world leaders realise that fighting is no option.
Well we shall have oliebollen anyway.( your spelling was correct!)
