Tag Dreiunddreißig

Vancouver Island

It's Christmas Eve. Last minute details and planning are keeping us occupied and then some. I'm sure many of you can relate.

Menu-wise, we're trying to eat everything that would otherwise go bad while we're away on holiday.

This weekend we'll depart for a trip to Vancouver Island and the city of Vancouver. It should be a beautiful, restful and re-energizing week of storm-watching and bonding with nature.

So far, I've managed to stay pretty much "on program" this holiday season. I'll know more about the results, of my passed week, tomorrow morning. Regardless of my scale-reading, I'm satisfied that I've not fallen off the wagon. The number on the scale will just help me to make any necessary adjustments - to what I'm already doing.

I hope you're all finding some joy and satisfaction as the holidays march on. I send you all my best wishes.

I LOVE Vancouver Island - it's one of my favorite places on earth. I think if I didn't live in Australia, I'd live on Vancouver Island.

Hope you are having the most relaxing and peaceful of times there.

This will be our first visit to the island. We've been to Vancouver before and really liked it. But, the island seems much more laid-back and restful. That's exactly what we need.

Thanks for your well-wishes, Sybil. I hope you have a blessed holiday and that your New Year will be joyful and health-filled as well. :)
