August 2020:

What a year 2020 is turning out to be! As I continue to work through the grief from the loss of my husband almost 4 years ago I draw upon a great sense of curiosity about the world around me and also a sense of responsibility towards the welfare of both my family and close friends but also that of the broader community. "Being in the present" is an emotion that I have chosen to embrace and discovering strengths I didn't know I had is very exciting!

And so 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.

    I enjoyed your comment on my blog when you said you wanted to walk in those mountains. Those mountains are in the Kinzua Dam area of the Allegheny National Forest near where I used to live. I walked miles and miles in those mountains. Sigh, but I was young then!

    Hardy Maritimer that you've become . . . just taking it all in stride!! Somebody got swept off the dock in Kincardine by a rogue wave and drowned over the past couple days. I know you'll be very careful!!

    Good morning,

    Just love looking at your photos--my in-laws are all from Nova Scotia so they bring back a lot of memories. I've lost them both now but we went many times in the early years of our marriage for family reunions (they are from Margretsville, NS). Nothing like the air from the Bay of Fundy! Wishing you much success on the 5% challenge!
