About Me

I'm a retiree (but not a senior citizen yet) living on one of the Canadian Gulf Islands with my husband (K) and our lovable Sheltie - Tartan. I fill my days on the island with gardening, photography, crafts (scrapbooking, knitting, needlework), reading and volunteering at our local library. I also enjoy cooking and I'm a trustee for our local water system. A few times a year, my husband and I head off on a trip since we both love to travel.
