  • Resilience!


    At the start of the New Year I chose a word for my “word of the year”. I chose the word resilience. I had no clue then how appropriate that word would be for 2020. Resilience: 1.the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. 2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into…

    Update:Pets and the Pandemic.

    I recently wrote a post about our little mini-Schnauzer June and how she was reacting to the pandemic. Or to put it more precisely, how she was reacting to us, her humans, reacting to the pandemic. When I wrote the post she seemed to be a bit unsettled and needed to be closer to us.…

  • Isolation Day Three

    Isolation Day Three

    Yesterday was day 3 of our isolation/quarantine after returning from Florida to Canada. My horse Biasini has remained in Florida so I do not have any horsey stories for you today. My husband David and I have established a routine of a morning walk and an afternoon walk. For the morning walk we went south…
