The Falls


Here I am. A few of you know me, some of you don’t. I had another blog for years and years and am slowly moving the content from my last address to this address. I would have loved to stay at the other address, but change is always good… right? It’s scary to start over. I’ll keep it simple for now. I love taking photographs, crafting, reading, playing with Photoshop, cooking, baking, being with my children & husband. You’ll see a motley combination of all that. I’ll try to work my way back to posting more often. See you soon!

My heart is at home on the Boundary between Worlds.
I have shivered in the Land of the Midnight Sun.
I traveled back home and breathed in the salt of the ocean.

I hid out where Canada’s first train robbery took place.
I was pulled back to the moss, sea and the singing of my people.

In the shade of a giant K, I ate apples and a million cherries.
I watched the traffic drive by me in a “blink & ya missed it” former mining town.
I took a long journey and briefly set down in quiet farming village.
I set out on long, dusty walks in a middle of nowhere hamlet.
I navigated the bewildering ETS and walked up three stories in the Festival City.
I lived small, in a village that is the Best of Both Worlds.
Now I’ve settled in a sunny hamlet and am content to watch my children grow.
I have lived in many places and may live in many more, but
When cloaked in the mist of Haida Gwaii, my heart will know it’s home.

Aug 19 2017 August 12 2017 August 12 2016 Broccoli & Corn from the garden 👏🌽🌱 August 12 2017 Shucking corn. We also blanched and froze a ton of garden fresh broccoli earlier. 😊 Aug 3 2017 Coconut Curry Lentil Soup. So yummy and simple to whip up. Find the recipe at @vegangela_food July 27 2017 Cheesy Skillet Biscuit Bread with Hot Pepper & Garlic Wine Jelly

#summercooking #foodie #biscuits July 24 2017. Today I noticed the chokecherries in our yard and that the birds haven't ate them all! 🍒🐦 So, with Apollo's help, I made some jelly and juice! I was always nervous about making jelly. I thought I would somehow ruin it and it wouldn't set. The jelly set perfect. 😊 Maybe it's because Apollo is such a great helper. 🤗👍 July 23 2017 Another book to add to my currently reading list! Wishing for the new Michael Crichton, but this will have to do for now. The Indiana Jones is Poe's book. Might have to give it a read too! 😉 📚⚘#bookworm Home! Back to the gloomy, chilly weather. Unpacking, cleaning & finding "presents" from Dory. 😼 Already missing my Ton, who is spending the summer with the grandparents. 😢❤ July 20 2017 July 20 2017 July 14 2017 Poe jumps off Chopaka Bridge!
