What a year 2020 has turned out to be! Although there has been lots of "downs" for many of us I am learning to focus on the good things in my life. I have a loving family, a safe and warm home, plenty of healthy food available, a caring community around me, ready access to health services and I am fortunate to live in a province that has put public safety before politics during this time of COVID.

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.

    Thank you reading my blog “Remember When Exercise was Fun” and sharing you own memories. While we all had “fun” in our own way, your experience was something I only read about in books. I love these Spark connections.

    Jeff didn't like my roasted veg and polenta. Bland. I thought it was okay. I've made a few new dishes lately that were really good. One was Hoisin Tempeh with Soba Noodles, Bok choy, and snap peas. Really blew our socks off! I think I've set the bar too high, though. Want to work in beans, grains, and veg more. emoticon

    About your comment on my feed about our boring car maintenance appt. I agree about taking a walk instead of sitting. This place is right on a busy road, nowhere to walk, except around there hot concrete sales lot. Ugh
    The last place we used to go to, before we moved here, was in a pretty neighborhood and near restaurants. We'd take off walking or go eat out for lunch. They'd call us when it was done.
    I sent you a link via sparkmail inviting you to my blog with pics of where we do walk. I see your pics on your page- you live in a gorgeous area! Have a great day. Thanks for your feed comment. emoticon emoticon
