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.

X is for XMAS


MERRY CHRISTMAS (XMAS) EVERYONE!  

I thought I'd put a link to the top 100 Xmas songs for 2017 so you could click on it and play anything your heart desires over the holidays.

Here it is:


This year, younger daughter and her husband plus one of my sisters will join me for Christmas dinner on the 25th.  Everyone is contributing to the meal, so it should be interesting.  

All I have to do is buy and cook the turkey!  

I'm just hoping the younger ones will do the clean-up.  

Have a wonderful and blessed time, everyone!

Merry Xmas!

One radio station here in the Bay Area start playing Xmas songs nonstop a week before Thanksgiving. It used to be the day after Thanksgiving they start playing carols, but they moved it up. I'm so tired of the Christmas songs after a week.

If they don't clean up, they should at least help!!!! LOL This sounds like a fun plan.
