Hello all – isn’t this picture beautiful? That’s sunset on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe – the country of my birth.
We started off the New Year with a New Year’s Eve party
We had an amazing time and definitely started off 2016 on a good note.
Over the weekend the weather turned foggy and then on Monday it snowed but by the time I thought of taking a photo of it, it had disappeared! We don’t get much snow in Vancouver.
January 7th was a very special day for me – I became a Canadian Citizen!
It was a lovely ceremony and I became quite teary and emotional. Later on, Mr. Lifeology took me to a pub where we celebrated with a couple of glasses of wine and a pub lunch.
Then on Saturday – a girl’s night out and what fun we had. It’s been ages since I went to a night club and lots of dancing and laughing were had by all.
We have a few plans for this year. Not resolutions as such because we’ve been planning since last summer. I started a dance class in November last year and am loving it whilst getting fit at the same time. Last week I started a new meal plan and lost 2 lbs.
In the Spring we’re going to start a container garden and grow our own vegetables and herbs, so watch this space for that. Our patio currently looks like this
And we’re hoping to fill it with beans, tomatoes, strawberries, carrots, lettuce, squash, onions, garlic and potatoes with various herbs and flowers thrown in. Hopefully, by July, this space will look lush and inviting. We have a garden bed in the front that we plan to utilize also.
We’re also planning to make our own wine. I did this some years ago with great success and we’ll start this in about mid-February.
I have one project that I must get done in the next 2 weeks or so. We found this chair sitting by a dumpster outside a thrift store and I knew it would be perfect for our living room.
I’ve been looking for a couple of chairs small enough to fit in that space. So we brought it home. That was a few months ago, so I resolve to paint and re-upholster it in the next 3 weeks. Now, I just have to find one more …
So a good start to the year. Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend and that you have a great week.
