Informed by the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, emphasizing the beauty of nature and organic forms, including their flaws; the materials were predominantly chosen for their patinas, weathering; and their relationship to Galiano island, and it's inhabitants. A character building, imbued with local elements, and patinas, the palette and finishing inside evoke more of the same 'island vibe’ - sun, ocean, forest; not hewn fresh but aged and with some stories to tell!
This is her before we went in. Filthy and in a real mess with some mats. The two above show the results. Doesn't she look great? And the groomer said she was very well behaved. They used all natural products, for dogs and people with chemical sensitivities. :) She's lost weight too, and is building … Continue reading Willow’s Spa Day
Trying to find a cell phone company that supports Android LTE Phones is a nightmare. I called Telus, Bell, Rogers, Koodo etc, asking each of them whether they supported LTE Smartwatches, and I was told the same thing by each of them. Either they ONLY sold the Apple Watch and Phone together, or the Galaxy Watch and Samsung phone, or both but NONE of them offered LTE plans for any of the other LTE watches currently available for purchase in Canada. So even if I bought an LG watch with LTE capability, or a Garmin, or Huawei; I would't be able to use it to it's full capabilities because of some shady proprietary deals the big Mobility companies have made with Samsung and Apple, to cut the smaller companies out and gain market share. So, I can't get the protection and security of a smartwatch without buying one of only two of the many choices available because no one will hook them up.
Glorious day at one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Today was gorgeous! Willow and I took a slow afternoon stroll to the beach at Studies Bay, went for a paddle, and got our toes wet. It was too irresistible not to!
Here's one of my favourite pics of my little home, taken just a few days ago after the second big snow storm of three we had in a week. It makes it look so cosy and I love the contrast with the white of the snow against the rusted patina and teal roof.
Not in the seven years I’ve lived on Galiano, have we had this much snow in one go! Certainly not where I am, which is virtually sea level right in Sturdies Bay. But last night there was 6-8 inches by 7:30pm, so I dug my snow shoes out of storage, and went out.
Yesterday, on my way for another day of medical appointments and and caught the beautiful soft pastels of a cold winters morn. Moments like these, standing on deck with the salty, wind whipping my face; just plain awed by the extraordinary beauty that surrounds us, and I am brimming with gratitude.
