Sounds like an awesome day!

You're so right about the 'taking your life back' stuff...

Theres just too much demanding our attention at all times... It can drive you nuts...

I'm tryin to do a similar thing... Deep breaths... Gettin back in control of what my life is and where its going.

Big love to you my friend,
Miss ya,



Niagara-on-the-Lake! That's one of my favourite places in Ontario! Have you been there in mid-May or in September? In the spring, the orchards are in bloom with millions of delicate pink and white flowers. It's soooo pretty! And in the fall, the orchards are thick and heavy with fruit and the vineyards are lush with tall grapevines. There's a festival every September where you can dine in the vineyards while fireworks light up the sky.

And when are you coming to NYC?

David spoke at a conference at Niagara on the Lake a couple of years ago - they whisked him to and fro amidst the snowfall in a white limo. :) So glad you and Graciel got to meet. She won my recent giveaway. Lovely photos. xoxox

I love the falls, and I couldn't agree more with scheduling. It gives you so much more time. I have a little two year calendar that I carry with me (about the size of a checkbook) and it tells me when to breathe. But, boy is it handy.


"I plan to make a plan"....oh yes, I've been there too. I am the queen of lists and I must say lists are liberating! Lovely pics of Niagara-on-the-Lake.


Looks like a wonderful day was had! I have been trying to wean myself off NPR and listening to this...pertaining to taking your life back :)



My castle in Spain

Graciel @ Evenstar Art

Oh, yes, it WAS delightful! So happy to have met another kindred spirit. Looking forward to a spring meet-up in Toronto, with hopes it is less windy and much warmer! But so many seem to wish for a visit to the gorgeous Niagara on the Lake, perhaps we should manifest a bloggers weekend there next year? Make the decision and it will happen, right?

Canadian girls rock! xo


oOo, faith is rewarded! A new and wonderful post from Gillian!

Meeting a friend? Lunch? Shopping? Yack yack? What could be better than that? Not much, that I can think of!

Good for you, doing what you need to do. RAWR. I wish you every success. And yes, I've been there.

And of course, yes, Canadian gals DO rock. Duh. LOL. ;-)
