PEI…

Well we made it for our quick trip out to family here on PEI.  We took some time out to go to Canoe Cove pictured below and yesterday managed Brakley Beach!  Boy that wind is cold off the ocean, and so very fresh!E8297493-E555-4A0E-82FE-C6598EB4DFDC

Today we had family to the house for a feast!  We had lobster and muscles along with scallops , salads, home made biscuits and buns!  And for dessert we had Grandma’s Boston Cream Cake!!  Oh man am I in trouble…. I had better start walking a lot once we’re here.

Tomorrow we are visiting friends of ours here on the island before we head back to Halifax to catch our flight home on Tuesday.   It’s been a very busy trip but it was wonderful to see everyone!  I am excited and nervous all wrapped into one but happy to be staying true to our plans.

Be sure to enjoy a walk on the beach ….or a walk in the snow!!  It’s a great way to connect to the majesty of nature and to re-energize!!

Until we meet again,

 

 

Seriously!

My last blog was about managing my time better and ‘making’ time to blog!  As you can see, I wasn’t very productive!  Sometimes I really wonder if I have anything interesting to share and then I realize that it doesn’t matter…..just share!  I like to look into the windows of other peoples lives and I’m sure someone out there would like to read about my life!  I love taking a glimpse into a home as I wonder past on an evening stroll.  I’m not sure why but it’s soothing somehow.  I won’t be able to do that once we are in PEI!  We will be in the country, sort of!

Time Management…

I really need to manage my time management better, but I don’t have time!!

 I had great intentions of Blogging every few days to generate a nice flow in content and to make some new friends in the process, but I did not  ‘have’ the time!!  Ok, how many times do we say that!!  How many times do we use this sentence… “I would love to do that but I don’t have the time”? ” I would love to go there but I don’t have the time!” Etc …  So easy to say right?  But, for something that is important for us to do, or a conversation that is really important for us to have with someone we must ‘make’ the time!  Seriously it’s a process, it’s planning, it’s making an effort to do it, to start it or to figure out how to start it!! 

Once the ball is in motion it swings easily!! There will be road blocks but we will make the time to conquer!!  We’re not failures, we’re not lazy we just need to make the time to plan!!! 

So, let’s get busy making what we love to do or what needs doing in our short 24 hour day a priority!! 

Ready… set…plan!!

Until we meet again,

Facing Fears!

Well, it’s not that dramatic but I am sitting in front of my dentist office in my car blogging, which is what I’d rather be doing!! It’s only a check up and cleaning but I know very well what that leads to…. 

ok, I’m going in 🙃

Until we meet again,

Another Day, Another Coat

I would love to see more Amy!!

Car Coats and Cashmere

So maybe I have a problem. The coat addiction is real, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to ease up anytime soon. I just really don’t think you can go wrong with a coat, so I choose to wear one all the time.

This particular beauty is from Simons, and I love it. It’s menswear-inspired, and reminds me of an oversized blazer. It’s super comfy, but not very warm. It does, however, fit well over chunky sweaters, so I’ll just layer it to death in the winter.

I’ve paired it with a black turtleneck that is also from Simons, because really, what’s life without a good turtleneck?! My jeans are from J.Crew, and the flats are my go-to Sam Edelman’s.

Well that’s all, folks. I hope you’re enjoying your week, and I will talk to you soon.

Amy.

One of my favorite dishes!

Good morning! I trust all is well with y’all:) 

Quinn and I went for a walk this morning and the air was filled with the sound of our Canadian Geese returning home!! Welcome back! Spring is here 🌞 

 I have some time before work today so I am preparing spaghetti squash! It is the most delicious dish for us low carb folk and easy to prepare.  Ideally I like to bake it the evening before and put it in the fridge over night. It takes on a different texture and is much easier to remove from the skin of the squash. I only remove what is needed for a meal and leave the rest in the fridge until the next meal. Trust me, I go through one pretty quickly!  I love to heat the squash and add butter and feta cheese. You can make a meat sauce and serve it just like pasta! It’s so versatile and makes a lovely satisfying dish. 

Enjoy…

Until we meet again,
