Much needed break…

We are on a much needed hiatus. Our first get away from it all in over two years. They haven’t been the easiest two years and getting here proved difficult as well. Since getting here my husband has been ill. Which leaves you the reader with several questions, maybe.

As we all know the pandemic has not allowed anyone to travel. Plans were made, plans were canceled. This year we can travel. Months ago we arranged everything for a two month stay in Mazatlan. Those plans, dreams, saw us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. The death of our youngest son. Two days before our departure date to Mazatlan. Violence erupted, I am sure most of you heard about that. Our dreams shattered. But, we managed to change everything at the last minute. Flights, accommodation and all. It was a stressful few days but thanks to great friends who stepped up to help and modern technology we are now happily ensconced in Ixtapa.

My husband has been ill but thanks to modern medicine and good medical services in Mexico he is recovering from a severe sinus infection and possible pneumonia. We have been determined to remain optimistic and look on the bright side of every deterrent.

Our glass is more than half full, all the time. I won’t say full of what exactly, you can figure that out. We are on vacation.

Ergo, you won’t be hearing much from me for awhile. Cheers Susan

I prefer sandy beaches and sunshine to a snowy and cold Canadian winter. Ergo I am on hiatus in Mexico and away from blogging. Maybe by the time I return to my Canadian home it will be sunnier and warmer. Here’s hoping. In the meantime I am sharing some photos. Enjoy.


Merry Christmas Wishes

Merry Christmas to you and yours from our home to yours. May your holidays be full of happy memories with the ones you hold near and dear. PEACE

Bits and Pieces

My painting “Give Up?” Has gone to a new home. The owners are birdie lovers. Yesterday I was volunteering at Gallery One Fifty in Sicamous. Being a soggy wintery day not too many people were out and about. I had time to paint a panda family in celebration of our impending family day holiday weekend. Time dragged on to a quick painting of a a hippo. She was gazing at me from the Telus wall calendar. The star of January 2018.

With all that I will say I am gone on hiatus for a wee while. Enjoy the rest of your winter. Spring will come, it always does. Cheers Susan


Break time!

Our girl is calling us away!  Its our weekend and after weeks of family obligations we need to escape.  Pardon me while I take time out.  Do you blame me?  See you in a couple of days my friends.  Cheers, Susan   p.s.  If I disappear for a few days over the next several months you will know where I am.
