MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

A Creek Runs Under It

Today we’re heading over to Marilyn’s home in Niagara Falls for Mother’s Day. As it’s Paula’s birthday, too, they normally have a combo celebration BBQ and we’re looking forward to the party. We picked up a few African Violets as a gift for Paula. As she’s still going through treatments for her cancer, we thought a few violets would be nice to look at on those down days. You never have enough flowers on a down day!!

I also took the time to snap a little photo of our wee bridge out back and thought I would post it – just for my own sake and for any family member that likes to see what Nat and I have been up to, so they can say “Ahhhhh”.

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
