... rheumatoid arthritis (RA). If you’ve read my earlier post, you’ll know that I was waiting for test results to find out why my ANA level (potential marker for an autoimmune disorder) was so high, with the particular test looking for rheumatoid. Although trying to find the actual answer will have to wait until I … Continue reading Well At Least It’s Not…
Happy New Year!
Hope everyone had happy holidays! I am optimistically looking forward to a new year that is far better than the old one. My only resolution is to try to stop putting myself last. After all, you have to put on your own oxygen mask first before you can help anyone else. For the first day … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Exercise, Peace, and Fresh Air?
Now that things are opening up more in the province, I want to try to take better care of both my emotional and physical health. So, I've started swimming two nights per week, when I can get a booking. The local pool has been doing 45-minute lane-swimming sessions, bookable no more than a week in … Continue reading Exercise, Peace, and Fresh Air?
Last week was a stressful week. No time or energy to blog. What else is new? With perseverance, though, the crisis was averted. Still working 7 days per week, unfortunately. Time still is at a premium, but I thought I would share some pictures from the last few weeks. And you know what happens when … Continue reading Inside/Outside
One Sunny Day on the Weekend

Toronto Revisited; and Vancouver
So, Guylty was asking if the view in Toronto is a nice as the one I left in Vancouver. Well, there are no mountains, but here's the view from the conference centre I'm at during the day. Nice juxtaposition of old and new. (The old is Toronto's Old City Hall.) My hotel has a swimming … Continue reading Toronto Revisited; and Vancouver
Waiting to Board
Leaving this behind for a week.
A neighbourhood street on a gloomy day: And a little spot of pleasure reminding me of my childhood:
A Day off and Sunny Weather!
Hard to believe, but Sunday was my first day off in I don't know how long! I slept in and then went outside to find that it was sunny -- and warm enough to forgo the jacket and just wear a short-sleeved shirt! The Weather Network says it's going up to 19 Celsius (66 Fahrenheit) … Continue reading A Day off and Sunny Weather!
Why Is It Still Winter?
Sorry I've been so silent lately. The pace of my work right now barely leaves time to breathe. The weather here is unsettled. I left home this morning seeing no precipitation in my neighbourhood, then hit some snow that really slowed the traffic down. (It is Vancouver, after all... a bit of snow almost immobilizes … Continue reading Why Is It Still Winter?
