NYC Pride!

And how about this hot cop from yesterday's Pride Parade in NYC!

Back up and running!

Hello to anyone still out there and checking this site! I've got the ClustrMap back up and will be adding more content in the coming days. I had a great trip to Italy last month and will be updating on that. Here are a few pics to get started! First pic is from Li Veli vineyard in Puglia where we sampled some excellent wine and had a beautiful meal (see third pic). Second pic is from Lecce - a beautiful city in Puglia. Puglia is the heel part of Italy. I loved this trip and would recommend it to anyone! Salute!

Pizza in the making

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all! We had a great evening last night with friends and neighbours. Lots of good food and laughs! Brad is going skiing in out West at the end of this month, and I'm going to Italy for two weeks in May! Here's to a  happy and prosperous 2015!

Moroccan root vegetable soup!

Supper tonight. From one of the Moosewood cookbooks. It is very yummy!

PEI Marathon!

So just a little over a month ago, Brad did the P.E.I. marathon! Even better, our friend Jeremy from Alabama, the guy Brad hiked a lot of the Appalachian Trail with, was here at the same time for a week-long visit. Jeremy arrived on Friday, we drover over to Prince Edward Island on Saturday. We had a two-bedroom cottage rented, and that night, we had a potluck supper with a lot of the folks from Brad's running group. There was lots of good food! The race was on Sunday. Jeremy came in first, as he did the half marathon. Brad did the full marathon and came in a while later. They did some yoga on the grass after the race. More of Brad's friends from his running club drove home after the race, but we had the cottage rented for another night, so we dined out in Charlottetown and had a quiet evening at the cottage to ourselves. We drove home on Monday. It was a great visit with Jeremy. So good to see him again after three years! We had lots of good food and lots of laughs. Brad's going to run a race with Jeremy in Alabama next year, so I will probably tag along for that.
In other news, I'm back at Weight Watchers try to drop a few pounds again! I'm down almost 9 so far with about 12 or 13 more to go. I let the stationary bike gather dust most of the summer, opting instead to walk outside, a lot of the time with my good friend Shaun. We put on a lot of miles over the summer. But now that the cool/cold weather is upon us, I've started back biking. Last week, I biked 79.4 km and walked 18 km! I'm going to get those pounds off by January!
I'll try to post more often as well! Thanks to all of you who've hung around! :)

Word Crimes!

Postcards from St. Andrews, N.B.

So we've been renting a beautiful coastal property just outside of St. Andrews, N.B. We're here for a few more days. It's a beautiful spot. We've been doing a lot of walking, reading, cooking and eating. Oh, and watching a lot of the World Cup! It's very peaceful and quiet here at night. Just loons and peeping frogs. Here are a few pics.

Last pics from South Beach

Finally... the last pics from February's trip to SoBe. The first ones are from our day in Winwood and the ones after are from the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. Whadda great time!

Beautiful sunny day here today, but there's still plenty of snow on the ground. And another 5 cm forecast for tomorrow. After that, it's supposed to be rainy and mild, so hopefully we see the end of the snow within a week and a half. I certainly hope so!
