Christmas: A Time for Miracles


Check out my new review for this eBook: Christmas Miracles, especially if you are in need of some hope and inspiration.

I really enjoyed the holiday-themed stories in this eBook

In a world that often seems to have gone mad (just watch the news!!) it’s so easy to give up on goodwill, hope and miracles, big and small. But the world IS filled with all kinds of good people and wonderful things, we just need to be open to seeing and believing that’s true. 

I wish you all… a magical and memorable holiday season!!



Hello Again! Early Autumn Update


Hope everyone had a great summer! 

I’m having a wonderful early autumn, currently visiting Vancouver Island and will probably be moving here soon too.

You can read all the details here:Autumn Update

It was a very hectic summer for us so the “chill time” we are now enjoying is much needed and appreciated.

I hope to be back to blogging on a more regular basis in the next few weeks. But for now, sending you all best wishes and thanks for your continued support of my blogs/books…it is most appreciated!

Searching For the Elusive…


I have been searching (and searching…) online for this elusive item, this past week.

Why is a simple, basic sweater like this so hard to find?

I couldn’t even find the right style in a different color, to include a photo with this post.

So here are my must-haves for the perfect black “turtle 😉

  1. Fitted, not sloppy looking, with a fitted neck, no cowls.
  2. Preferably a cotton or other natural blend fabric.
  3. Ribbed texture throughout.
  4. Reasonably priced, not over $40.
  5. True black, not mixed colors, marled…
  6. Not too thick but not thin either, medium weight.
  7. Free or reasonable shipping charges.

If you happen to note this kind of pullover sweater online and it is at a site that ships to Canada, please let me know.

I can’t believe I am the only woman searching for a black, ribbed turtleneck right now.

And I can’t believe that I haven’t been able to find what was always considered a winter wardrobe basic, especially here in Canada. 😦
