Memories Of My Uncle Bob

It’s hard to know where to start when asked about my memories of you. But they go back a long ways, that I know. I rememberĀ in my early years, spending a lot of time at Nana’s house, and that meant spendingĀ much of it with you, as she cooked, was baking or did the washing.I rememberContinue reading “Memories Of My Uncle Bob”

Become…

Here’s one for all my female followers. A friend posted this recently on Facebook, and I thought it would be a nice reminder, for all of us. We all need to remember who we are, and who we want to be.

Making Every Day Count Six Years Later…

It’s a scary thought, that six years ago on this date, my cancer journey began. It was a Friday, and I was scared as Hell. Anyone who has been through a cancer diagnosis will be able to relate.

My Aurora

Five years ago, my sweet girl Aurora passed. She came to me at the boarding kennel I owned in 2001, as a rescue foster dog. The poor thing was nothing but skin and bones after having lived on the streets for goodness knows how long. She had finally been trapped and taken to the “pound”Continue reading “My Aurora”

The store also had an extensive CD collection of world music, including the Putumayo Collection. But my absolute favourites were anything thatContinue reading “Musical Monday: Presenting The Didgeridoo”
