August 2020:

What a year 2020 is turning out to be! As I continue to work through the grief from the loss of my husband almost 4 years ago I draw upon a great sense of curiosity about the world around me and also a sense of responsibility towards the welfare of both my family and close friends but also that of the broader community. "Being in the present" is an emotion that I have chosen to embrace and discovering strengths I didn't know I had is very exciting!

And so I have sold the dream home that my DH and I built, left my dearly loved gardens and rural community and have bought and moved into a condo in the seaside community of Eastern Passage. I have a small garden space I am itching to develop ASAP, access to opportunities for outdoor exercise, volunteerism and a choice of nearby universities and libraries for learning. My family, apart from my daughter, is nearby and hopefully if and when COVID has settled a trip to Scotland to see her will be possible again.

    The Kalanchoe's are supposed to be indoor here as well, but I took a chance and put them on a stand right next our house so they didn't get direct sunlight. The plants did real well for about 3 years, then started having trouble. I think I left them in the same pots for too long. emoticon

    The orange plant is a Kalonchoe. I love this color. In the past I had red, yellow, and pink Kalonchoe's.

    Never give anyone the power to 'make' you feel something you don't choose to feel.

    I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next 3 years.......

    Our security business that hubby joined a couple of friend in starting 23 years ago certainly didn't flourish at all under the other govt but did really well under labour over the years....we have just sold the last of our shares so the business could now start to pick up under Labour and thats ok......time for us to
