What a year 2020 has turned out to be! Although there has been lots of "downs" for many of us I am learning to focus on the good things in my life. I have a loving family, a safe and warm home, plenty of healthy food available, a caring community around me, ready access to health services and I am fortunate to live in a province that has put public safety before politics during this time of COVID.

I have sold the dream home that my DH and I built, left my dearly loved gardens and rural community and have bought and moved into a condo in the seaside community of Eastern Passage. I have a small garden space I am itching to develop ASAP, access to opportunities for outdoor exercise, volunteerism and a choice of nearby universities and libraries for learning. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

Other Information:
I love to garden. Crosswords and reading keep me busy when the snow flies. Cooking is also a delight- I'm always looking for new ideas for vegan meals. I am passionate about diet and exercise and firmly believe that we do have the power to keep ourselves healthy by eating well and being active.

    The picture I took at the top of the hill is a older picture. There is a lot more shrub now. Bouncing back from a fire a few years ago. The last few days we have been windy (high winds warning), so as soon as the wind dies down I want to hike back to the same area and get a new picture. emoticon

    Thank you for adding me emoticon I have already have been doing a lot Vegan (and I enjoy it) The problem I am are a few, I/we are doing this to get healthy/feel better, but also to lose weight I think they kind of go together The troubles I am having are (do you count calories, portion control or what)? And also I thought Vegan is Vegan, but I am finding out it's much deeper Forks over Knives says "Whole food Plant Based" And there are a lot of things they don't eat or use emoticon I want to do this the right way In the mag. they have 3 categories 1. Load up on these 2. Enjoy in moderation and 3. Avoid or minimize But then I hear things from others and it makes it more confessing Again I am an all in and doing it right So any and all help is great! How long have you been? Thank you again, and sorry if this is too much! emoticon emoticon emoticon
