Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Hello back Rocket. I am doing well. Since I retired again (ha ha) at the end of November, I keep myself occupied with my own care ministry. My in laws need help with socialization, getting to doctors and getting out occasionally. Then I help those women from my church that need help going to doctors and so on. Saturday night was my 5 year old granddaughter's first sleepover. We had a fun visit and the reward was this little cutie hugging my and saying "this is the best sleepover ever!". Warmed my heart!

Wow!!  Great to hear Cynthia.

You could summer in Edmonton and winter in Penticton!

I'm still going back and forth, and it's not a big problem being a bit of a gypsy.....LOLOL.

Hi Linda,   Hope that all is going well with you!!

Congratulations Cynthia! From all the work you previously described in your townhouse I am sure it is beautiful. So glad that worked out for you. Of course, being near family is very important as well as having your own independence. My cousin and her family live in Edmonton. Nice place. Enjoy and safe move!

Comment by Cynthia yesterday

Well I am going to write at last.

So many new things happening here in the Lower Mainland.

I have sold my townhouse as the prices are ridiculous and I thought I would get out now while the going was good.

 have been here two and a half years and I have remodelled the house in this gated community . I have been offered an amount I cannot refuse.

I am going to live in Edmonton just ten minutes from my son, daughter and 5 Grandchildren.

I bought the house there as the prices were fallng due to the current challenges that Alberta is having.

I am also looking for a Summer place in Oenticton where my son and his wife are teaching, so hope to finally meet soe of you next year.

I am trying to get up to Edmonton the last week of October before the snow arrives.  I have lived in coldd temperatures n Fraser Lake 100 miles West of Prince George for 6 years with 5 stores and a pub within 100 miles, so Edmonton with all its amenities should be much better.

Hi Pat,

I don't think you are missing messages; rather, I think no one is posting lately!

I hope that you are doing well. The sun is finally arriving in the Toronto area and the temperature is finally going up. I even think I may be able to remove my winter tires soon! Ooh! I was on a week vacation with 4 of my cousins. Our first "cousin vacay" so it was nice to have a full week together in the Dominican Republic. Now I am working my Care Ministry and dog-sitting. I can't complain! Hugs to everyone out there.

I'm still here and still wondering why I'm not receiving any messages

I checked all of settings for Yahoo and I should be getting them..  In the meantime, I'm just going to have to muddle through and just keep reading the posts.  I hope that I and get tis resolved because I really miss you guy.

Everyone is safe and sound. My niece in West Virginia had quite a bit of snow and you're right: this is not the norm for them!

This area is supposed to go in the plus this week for a brief respite but I highly doubt it will rain. Enjoy yours, Rocket!

Unfortunately the east coast of the USA doesn't get enough bad weather like this to have on hand the type of machinery to deal with it, so in many places they just hunker down and wait for it to melt.

Hope everyone there, and your families & friends will be safe.

+8C here the other day and rained all day yesterday.  I think that Spring has arrived here..... at least I have my fingers crossed that it has!!  LOLOLOL

Greater Toronto Area fine. My family in West Virginia and Connecticut are very impacted. Watching CNN to see how they are coping.

Comment by Cynthia on January 23, 2016 at 8:39pm
