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!!
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!

… BLACK RIBBED TURTLENECK SWEATER! 😉
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“ 😉
- Fitted, not sloppy looking, with a fitted neck, no cowls.
- Preferably a cotton or other natural blend fabric.
- Ribbed texture throughout.
- Reasonably priced, not over $40.
- True black, not mixed colors, marled…
- Not too thick but not thin either, medium weight.
- 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. 😦

Hope someone can help with this ??? re: MYWAY email service!
Thanks if you can!!! 😉
I noted today that theMYWAY websiteis shutting down, as of the first part of December.
I have a few myway email accounts and it’s not clear if they will still be functional, after their main website shuts down.
Any ideas, anyone??? I couldn’t find any more info. about this online.
What a pain in the a….this is going to be, IF they are shutting down their email service too. 😦
This is REALLY worth reading.
I know that at times I sit too long, without a break. 😦
But after reading this post about why that can be so harmful health-wise and in so many ways, I’m going to make an effort to do better. 🙂
Can you relate? Do you sit for long periods of time, without taking a stretch, walk break?
HAVE A GREAT DAY! 🙂
I have always loved to sing! 😉
Many years ago I sang on a semi-professional basis for quite some time.
I was also a finalist (twice) in one of Canada’s prestigious country music competitions at that time: THE BIG COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, in the late 80’s.
I “belted out” 😉 a respectable rendition of some of the musical hits of the time, including:
Desperado, Someday Soon, Stand By Your Man and Catch the Wind…
to name but a few.
What fun it was and what an unexpected pleasure to find that other people (including some who had been in the biz for a long time) thought I had a talent for singing too.
Years later, in 2000 I decided to get back into singing and took more voice lessons, in a more classical vein this time. What a joy it was to rediscover the freedom and pleasure of singing!
Of course I’ve always tried to remember to “lighten up the day” with a song, humming along to a CD, singing while driving etc. The times I really remember the true joy of singing are many and varied. One thing I did not know until recently were the many health benefits associated with singing.
This article is interesting, listing various health benefits directly related to singing. These include: improved memory, lung capacity, reduced stress and lower blood pressure to name but a few. There are many other lists/articles online, describing the numerous physical, emotional and mental health benefits of singing.
Whether you consider yourself a singer or not, it’s a great way to improve each day and your life. And it doesn’t have to cost a dime! Even if you start in the shower and go from there, you might surprise yourself and go on to share your singing voice with the world. You just never know! It’s all good. 🙂
PS: A version of this post was previously shared at one of my now inactive blogs: Take A Happy Break. I thought my Veggie…readers might enjoy this info. too. 😉
