Remembrance Day Ponderings

    I can’t imagine the many thoughts that would be contemplated with each sunrise that came and went during the time my Dad was overseas in World War II, 3 years and 6 months to be exact.    He left behind my Mom and my oldest brother at 1 year old.  He boarded a…

Muscle Cars – Who was first?

It is really, like really no secret I like muscle cars.   I don’t always know their names, or the year of the model I like, but like I knew what I wanted in a man (and I got what I wanted in Darwin), I know what I like in what I see in the…

Flying into the wind or Flapping

In our home birds hold a special place.  Darwin feeds them in feeders and then we sit and watch with great delight how they have their own politics as to who is at the feeder first, longest and basically is the boss. This morning was not unlike most mornings, breakfast on the table and looking…

Have you found an Agate?

Recently we had our company dinner to celebrate two of the men we have had working for us for over 20 years.   It was great to get to visit and celebrate the dedication of these two guys, they have become family.   While we were visiting Justin and his wife Erin began to tell…

Sunrise (photos)

When we bought our home it was the view of Mt Cheam (and the clothesline) that sold me and told me that this was our home!    Over the years we have been witness to some amazing enchanting sights.   The other morning was again a day to hold our breath and watch the sky…

Ready set… old?

Gratitude

Reading my daughter’s facebook post this morning on this last year brought a lot of emotions.   Overwhelming gratitude is first and foremost.  Gratitude for God’ hand of mercy and strength tops the list as we look back over the hard that started October 2, 2017. Many days were rattled with uncertainty of where it…

What’s in a Name?

One of the more perplexing things when you have a baby is what you will call this new little life.   After all, this name will be with them for ever.  Unless… you pick something they don’t like and they change it later in life, hence the perplexity.  You hold the little one in your…
