My new book “Midlife Solo” is now available.

summer already, in March

It is simply mind-bogglingly beautiful out – like early June, 15 degrees, hot sun, chirping birds, yet no flowers or buds on the trees because it’s still WINTER. Too bizarre. No one is complaining. It’ll continue like this all March Break week, and then it’s predicted to be zero degrees on Monday. Nice of nature to take the vacationing schoolchildren into account, for once.

On Saturday, W’sn, my new tenant Mary Fay and I went to see a dress rehearsal of “Art,” directed by Morris Panych and designed by Ken MacDonald, the Lunt and Fontanne of the Canadian theatre world. What a supremely talented pair they are. Seeing the dress rehearsal was thrilling, the play and performances nearly there but still in transit. We all found it a highly entertaining, well-written play, well directed, well acted, a great evening of theatre all round, and not just because it was free. Kudos to all concerned.
Hard to believe that I am preparing to depart once more, but it seems to be true. I booked this trip last year, as soon as I got home, perhaps a bit rashly and fast. However – you’ll be happy to have something new to read about, won’t you, bloggees?

    They don't need intricate plumbing or installing, so don't let that
    put you off. Wire basket based garden planters are tough, sturdy and durable and made of
    high-quality coco fiber with attractive designs. If you decide you don't want lighting, it doesn't have to be permanent.

    Ideally, it is recommended to appoint an interior designing company in
    London which has a good standing in the industry and preferably have an in-house manufacturing team as well.
    Only when a client is satisfied with his new lovely design, the work may be considered to be
    successful. This will help you to get ideas
    that you may not think of, which you can incorporate into your project.
