For family reasons, I haven’t been able to sit down at the computer and give you all an update on happenings in the neighbourhood. So now that I do have some time, here’s the stuff I’ve been dying to share: Read the rest of this entry »


My original goal was to ride until holidays at the end of October, but when we came back I actually found it invigorating and a bit of a cure for jet lag to ride my bike in to work my first day back.

Now my goal is to ride until the end of November or until there is snow on the bike path that prevents me from a stress-free ride. Read the rest of this entry »

Last night we attended another meeting about the seniors’ residence. It wasn’t as well attended as previous meetings, and there were clearly new people in the room, based on the questions we heard. Read the rest of this entry »

Well, as usual, I took way too many photos. This one is my favourite.

I’ve uploaded a whole bunch on flickr, and am slowly going through adding titles and more detailed info. But if you read the blog you should be able to follow them because for the most part they are chronological.

I was all set to go to the Grand Canyon (again) to watch the sunrise, but couldn’t convince Rob. Instead I looked out the hotel window as the sky changed from dark to pink, then orange and yellow. The breakfast room was crowded this morning, filled with weekenders using Flagstaff as their base to explore the canyon. Probably a good thing we didn’t go.

I didn’t think I’d ever end up in Arizona, but here we are in Flagstaff, so named becaue of the pine tree that was stripped of its branches to fly the American flag in celebration in1876. The flagstaff became a landmark and in May 1881 when enough people had arrived at the railroad camp to justify a post office, the name Flagstaff was chosen. Read the rest of this entry »
