Pies, Tarru Potta

So, tonight I didn’t go to the fireworks. And I didn’t get to see Michelle. But, we did make 12 personal size pies for the Germans arriving tommorow. Good news – I’m seeing a friend tommorow morning. (Yes, the morning – isn’t that an interesting time to see someone?). And tonight I watched Harry Potter […]

Dave I’m looking in your direction). She was around all day yesterday, […]

Becoming a Street Artist

I was put on edge when I learned that we would each be doing our own paintings (she had prepared nine “Canvasses”, i.e. pieces of thin wood […]

Galiano Biking Success

The one day biking extravaganza was an ultimate success. This morning, Simon, Milan and I ferried our bikes to the fabulous Gulf Islands. We rode most of the way down the island, saw StoneWorld, hung out in a cave, and ate an amazing dinner at the Market (highly recommended). To avoid: Montegue Bay; a hangout […]
