My husband came home perplexed after someone said…

What has 4 letters, sometimes has 9 letters and never has 5 letters.

He asked me “What is the answer?  The guy who said it wouldn’t tell me.”


I found it so funny this week when my hubby came home from work and mentioned he received a text message saying, “OMW”.  He said, “What the heck does that mean?”

I guess there were 8 others in the room 50 years young and none of them could figure it out.  I said, “That means on my may”.  He said, “How do you know that?  And why wouldn’t she just have said that in the first place!”

I told him he should have asked her.  He said, “No way.


Finally summer has arrived, but so far the rain hasn’t stopped.  Let’s hope the entire summer won’t be a wash out.  

I live in a wooden century home which needs to be painted.  We didn’t get to it last year because of construction across the road.  There was so much dust & debris from the construction we weren’t able to get close to the job.  And so far this year the weather is stopping us from getting to it as well; either too wet or too humid. 

Happy Father’s Day weekend

A fast shout out to all the amazing father’s in the world!

May you be blessed with an extraordinary year filled with those you love & enjoy, health and wellness!

And just because it’s Friday here’s a flashback for you of my Dad and I from 2016…it is a little blurry, but we were on a bus at the time…


This may sound crazy but I think my blue jay came back today!  There was a blue jay born in the backyard and came to sit near me on the back patio.   Here he is in the tree…

White light

So it seems I shouldn’t wear white after Victoria Day. And yesterday I learnt I should look in the mirror more often. After I got home from teaching I went to put my hair up and when I finally did look into the mirror saw I had spilled my morning coffee all over my white shirt!

Changing lives

I overheard some students talking after class yesterday. One of them said, “This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. Now i can get through another week”

I’m so grateful for those who show up each week, with mats in hand, to practice yoga with me. They sometimes come stressed and worried, other times joy-filled; depending on the week. And they take the hour to breath, to relax, to work hard.

Where did that time go?

One would think after having a cold for 85 days (of what some called the 100 day cold) this past winter my immune system would be super strong. Then Spring arrived. So did the allergies.

I haven’t had trouble with allergies for years. I went through many AET (allergy elimination technique) sessions which reverses sensitivities. I can’t explain how it works but I do know it did. I was allergic to outside

Getting the run around

I seriously have to wonder how well Sophie, my White Russian, knows how to tell time. Every night she tucks me into bed. Then minutes before the alarm goes off every morning she wakes me up. Sometimes it’s in a nice way, other times she pounces on my belly to announce her arrival.
