I LOVE this picture! It reminds me of someone in our family who will one day be an old lady and she won't be wearing a red hat, but she will have cats! Any guesses?? She may have a dog too!
Another nice day here on the West Coast, however, it's still kind of cold with a chill in the wind. I did a lot of walking today and my knees are screaming out in pain! It's the hill's here that get me. I'm great on the flat and can go on forever, but get to inclines or declines and pain, pain, pain. However, I keep telling myself, as my heart is pumping hard, and I can hardly get my breath, that this is all very good for me! Meanwhile, I'm wondering how hard my heart must pump before it decides, it's had enough, and I'm left laying on the side walk!

I also went for a bone scan today, just as part of my yearly physical. About 15 years ago, I had one done and my doctor was all amazed that my bones were like the bones of a 17 year old and he told me I'd never have to have another one for the rest of my life. So, I was telling the technician this today and she said, she wouldn't want the bones of a 17 year old when I was in my 50's, because a 17 year old bones are fully grown, or hardened or whatever she meant. It wasn't good! So, it will be interesting to see what the report says.

I walked over to the lab and I was mad at myself again for not bringing along the camera. The tulips are in bloom and what beautiful displays I came across. I'll have to go tomorrow and retrace my steps and snap some photo's.
Last year, I went down to LaConner, Washington, where the tulip and daffodil fields are. Acres and acres of them. http://www.geocities.com/harald_nancy/tulips_in_la_conner.htm
What a beautiful sight, to see field after field of all beautiful colours of these beautiful flowers

Tonight, I have three...well four, things I can do. 1. Go to the Newcomer's Meeting, 2. Go to our building meeting to see what the plan is for upgrading the look of the flooring in the building, or 3. Watch Barbara Walters on how to live to over 100, or 4. go to bed and read my book.
I think I'll do 2, 3 and 4. I'll multitask!!

I gave up reading the sequel to Pillars of the Earth, called World Without End. I read to a page 100 and decide, I had enough. Too boring!!

Now I'm reading a really funny book, that I can relate to. Joan, gave it to me for Christmas and it's pretty darn good!!! By Sophie Kinsella

So, seeing as it's almost dinner time in the land of sea to sky, I should close this off and get cooking. Actually, we are just having a croissant with delicious ham head cheese on it.

Picture of the day:
Roxanne and her friend Kass, in Montreal. I think this is such a cute picture. I should have lightened it up a little first. They were on a horse and carriage ride. Romantic!
Thought of the day: Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust


  1. Hey Linda, You should live out here in Ladner.....In order to find an incline we have to go to one of the highway overpasses:)
    That is a VERY NICE picture of Roxanne and her friend!!!

  2. Wish I had YOUR bones Sister! Are you sure we're related? oh right...you were the one who was adopted...right?
    Be sure to bring your camera tomorrow for your walk. Your photos of all the blooms are gorgeous.
    Gee...TWO pictures of me in your blog today! lol You're right..that may be me in a few years with all those cats around me...and maybe a dog...but I'd still rather be the one in the caleche.
    Love you,
    Sam xoxo
