When we went to Collen and Echo’s house for Crazy Canadian Thanksgiving, we took an apple pie that I baked. It was really good and they both had a second slice. Later, when I sent mini pies to work with Ken for an event, Collen had two of those, too, haha! Since it’s usually just… Continue reading Have a slice of apple pie while I eat some of this crow!
I woke up this morning ready to watch the Toronto Santa Claus Parade on tv. I got myself settled with some toasted cranberry-pecan bread and some hot chocolate and couldn’t find the parade anywhere.

While that was a vast improvement over what was… Continue reading Reasons I Love Calgary – Farmer’s Markets
Ken and I do a lot of driving in the mountains here, just like we used to in Colorado. There seemed to be more little towns to explore in the mountains of Colorado, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to see here. In fact, the parks here are chock full of stunning views. I… Continue reading A Twenty Dollar View – we visit Moraine Lake
