Road Trip Adventures Episode 1: The Surprised Cows

Don’t get me wrong; this wasn’t my first road trip since arriving in Scotland. But it was a bit of an adventure! And it’s all because of lawn bowls… yes you read that correctly! My newest hobby, thanks to my aunt’s cousin, Joan. Joan was taking me to a town called Denny, just outside Falkirk,Continue reading “Road Trip Adventures Episode 1: The Surprised Cows”

I’m Back!

Well, after what seems like a really long wait, I have finally got my internet hooked up. I have a lot of online catching up to do! So in the next couple of weeks I should be able to write more blog posts, work on my web page, and start some new projects. Pantera wasContinue reading “I’m Back!”

Life In Scotland

It’s been a busy almost 3 weeks for me… Getting settled in my lovely wee bungalow, buying some necessities, decor, and adopting a pair of fur-kids. Doing a little exploring and getting accustomed to my surroundings. I’ve been getting other things in order too. Working on setting up my banking, cell phone and internet services.Continue reading “Life In Scotland”

Saying Good-Bye

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, you know I am leaving Canada to return to my homeland of Scotland. Here I sit, down to my last few days here. It kinda’ feels surreal! This is not a sad occasion, however. Even though it is hard to say farewell to family, friends andContinue reading “Saying Good-Bye”

Who Has The Nicest Butt? (Artistically Speaking…)

Social Media can either be useful and educational, or totally annoying and useless. But you can be guaranteed a laugh on a regular basis. I don’t even remember how I found this page, but it was definitely a link from one of the social media channels. Whether or not you have an appreciation for art,Continue reading “Who Has The Nicest Butt? (Artistically Speaking…)”

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”

My Apologies

I had a plan when I started this blog. That plan has since been revised. Twice. At least… My original plan was to come up with something to write every single day. But life is busy, and sometimes my brain doesn’t want to have to work that hard. So, I thought I’d do theme days.Continue reading “My Apologies”

“Let Your Inner Light Shine” A Message From The Fireflies

Also known as “lightning bugs”, fireflies are actually a nocturnal variety of soft-bodied beetle. There are over 2000 species worldwide, and they are found on every continent except Antarctica. Did you know that not all fireflies glow as an adult, but they all do in their larval stage – fascinating! They also spend most ofContinue reading ““Let Your Inner Light Shine” A Message From The Fireflies”

Happy Canada Day!

I consider myself very lucky. Whereas I am and always will be a proud Scot, I am also proud to have lived much of my life in Canada. Canada certainly has a lot to offer! A great education system, healthcare and many opportunities. Beautiful lakes, beaches, forests to explore, the Rocky Mountains. Canadians pride themselvesContinue reading “Happy Canada Day!”

Musical Monday: Presenting The Didgeridoo

I was first introduced to the didgeridoo (or didge, for short) many moons ago, while working for a fun store called Green Earth, that used to sell imported products from around the world. 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”
