1. What are you doing for Easter? It’ll be just like any other day. By the way, when is Easter? 2. How many spring flowers have you noticed the last week or so? Who can help but notice the cherry blossom trees bursting into pink all over the place? See my pictures here. I saw daffodils and well, lots of ...

What’s for lunch?

What's for lunch?
Our lunches are getting simpler. Chips and our newfound 7-layer dip. So so good. And a ready-to-eat tray of shrimp cocktail. Homemade strawberry smoothie. You may not have heard of smoothie in a mug but that’s how I roll. As long as my smoothie is thick, frozen and made from fresh fruit, I don’t care if I have to slurp ...

The day we had to wash the dishes 2

The day we had to wash the dishes
… well, almost. It’s happened before. I couldn’t believe it was happening again. It felt like deja vue. So we decided to do fish and chips again for lunch. It’s the place where we practically have a table with our name on it. The entrance is by the open kitchen and when the chef sees us coming in, he always ...

Wordless Wednesday
An unedited photo of a gorgeous spring day in Vancouver. It’s unreal how those cotton candy clouds just seem to hang there by invisible strings against the plain blue sky. Enjoy your spring day.

Hey, happy Tuesday, how’s everyone been? 1. What has kept you busy lately? Oh, I’ve been watching a mini-series which is something I haven’t done in ages. But that’s how exciting life is here, eh? 2. Are you making or creating anything? Nothing at all. In fact, my lunches are getting simpler aka lazy cook. 3. What are you really ...

Yo, just back from my 48 degree walk (that’s 7, 8 degrees to you Celsius folks), and man, what gorgeous weather outside!

Cherry blossoms everywhere, omg! Walking ...

Hey everyone, I’m late to the party again… 1. Since these questions are posting on the first day of April, it seems only right to ask-when was the last time you did something foolish? If you can’t answer that one, try this one-when was the last time someone fooled you? I do foolish things, sure, and I laugh at myself ...

Hey April and chatters, how’s everyone doing today? I don’t know why I’m so chirpy today. I swear it’s the caffeine working overtime on this morning’s chat… 1. What’s your favorite method of travel? I like traveling by car. There’s the freedom to stop any time to soak in the sights, shop, eat, breathe, ya know, … or use the ...

In defense of winter 1

In defense of winter
Well, spring is officially here. It rained the first day of spring, then over the weekend, the sun came out bright and blazing hot. When it’s that sunny, even at 50 degrees, it’s still warm enough to be out sans jacket and with only my trusty umbrella. Now that’s what I call liberating. Most days are still cloudy, rainy and ...

1. March is known as the windy month. Which of the following phrases best fits your March so far…’throw caution to the wind’, ‘three sheets to the wind’, ‘run like the wind’, or ‘see which way the wind blows’? For the most part, I like to plan but I’m also learning to go with the flow and see which way ...
