BERRIES, BERRIES AND MORE BERRIES PLEASE!

  Found this recipe on High Walls – I love berries and vanilla ice cream.  I haven’t made this yet but it’s a no brainer.  I’m positive the pie is delicious – after all it contains two very important ingredients for awesomeness – fat and sugar!  Enjoy – picture makes me want to eat it up.. … Continue reading

GRATITUDE – JULY 9, 2014

Yesterday all of us stopped by the rink for a public stick and puck session.  We were late and rushing into the rink with all of our gear, we stepped into a pathway lined with beautiful trees and flowers.  Buzzing here and there amongst the beauty was this little humming bird.  We were very late … Continue reading

JUST BECAUSE IT ISN’T HAPPENING HERE

In light of Russia walking in and taking over the Ukraine and all the other places in the world where war is constant, we here in North America take for granted that our children can go to bed in peace and walk the streets without  fear of bombs,violence and bloodshed.  This blog is dedicated to … Continue reading

A LESSON IN EQUALITY

It’s been a while since I’ve thought about Ron, but for some reason I’ve been thinking about my dear friend quite a bit lately.  The friendship that Ron and I shared was unlikely.  Ron was twice my age, married with teenage children, he was from a foreign country and wise beyond my years.  I was … Continue reading

War is brewing in our house  –  on one side my husband and I stand and on the other side stands our two children.  At one time Drew was on the  side of  the children, but my guess is he likes our bed too much and has since joined me!  Seriously the war is about … Continue reading

ANNOUNCING SIMPLE TREASURES

I’ve started an e-bay store – thought I’d share my new adventure with all of you – I called the store “Simple Treasures” because it defines what I’m selling.  It’s a family store as my children help me find products so each item represents all of our interest.  I only have a few things listed … Continue reading
