Well, as you can see, I’m still not back to posting (or visiting) regularly – but I’m slowly getting there. I’m still having problems with my recovery, and will be glad to see my new doctor Thursday afternoon. As much as my body is struggling right now, my heart is rejoicing at my new surroundings – I absolutely love it here in Castlegar! It rained for most of October (lol), but today was so beautiful and sunny that I just had to get out and take some photos of my temporary home here at my friend’s place. I haven’t found a way down to the river yet but I’m determined; and I so want to run my hands through the water … lol. It’s a little colder today, but compared to Alberta it’s still mild – and no snow yet! Please enjoy the slide show …..
When I’m able to be productive (i.e., not sleeping or doped up on my meds, lol), I’m working on several projects. My former boss at the Adult Learning Center in Alberta needs my help with adding to their website and that involves revising the navigation – a project that will likely take most of the week. In addition I have a new poetry collection, “Essence of Woman” that I’m slowly adding to. I’ve been doing a little work on the second draft of my novel; also the Poetry Corner for AWESOME online magazine – and a special guest feature for my December blog.
I’m also working on a little surprise- a gift for my friends and family, and as a small thank you for those who have purchased my poetry book and who follow my blog. More on that later – hopefully in a couple of weeks.
Lastly, I am continuing to send thoughts and prayers to all who have been affected by loss and devastation from Hurricane Sandy. My heart aches for those who are still without basic necessities: food and shelter, heat, hot water and power. So many are in such great need, and not only of physical necessities – people also need comforting and compassion as they deal with personal tragedies and the loss of loved ones, pets and personal items that cannot be replaced. I’m sending healing thoughts, prayers and love to all who have suffered in the face of this tragedy.
~Wishing you a blessed day, with love from Julie ♥
