      Thanks for reading, Darlene. Think it’s just about as hot in NS here today as where you are. I’m enjoying keeping up with your new life via FB etc.

      Very happy, thanks, Mirka:) But it’s nice to be home – my dog-child missed me (and possibly my husband, too).

      “Snorting my Tea” sounds like a good title – maybe not for a kids’ book:) I love seeing random info posted in random places.

    Beautiful! The ‘time to reflect’ photograph in particular keeps catching my eye.
