An Adventure To Exstew Falls

An Adventure to Exstew Falls


I've lived in northern British Columbia for nine years(!!!!) but I'm still often flabbergasted by the scale of things here. Back in California I thought nothing of throwing the kids in the car and heading off on an adventure by myself. When my boys were 5, 3, and 1, I took a daytrip from Santa Cruz to Yosemite with little…

Yummy Brussels Sprouts!


I love Brussels Sprouts, and as I've said earlier, I had no idea you could just grow them in your garden. I spent a decade in Santa Cruz, California, where farmers grow them on the cliffs beside the ocean up Highway One, and I'd always supposed it took that exactly climate to be able to grow them correctly. Happily, I…

Chicken/Shed Update #2


A couple of days ago I posted about our new chicken coop/run attached to our small shed out back. Since he was working on the building already - jacking it up and installing the coop and run - my husband decided to go ahead and just turn the rest of the shed into a greenhouse/potting shed while he was at…

Chicken update


We finally finished the chickens' coop and run. It's embarrassing how long it took to get that done, and even more embarrassing to admit how long our poor chickens lived in a cardboard box in my office! But they're happy now, and I'm happy they're out of here. Don't get me wrong - I love my chickens, but the smell…

On the Road to Prince Rupert, Part 2


Yesterday I wrote about my trip to Prince Rupert, BC, with two good friends last week. I live in Terrace, BC, which is a small town about 500 miles due north of Vancouver. It's a small logging town that's in transition and is also somewhat of a base for many mining and natural resource projects around northern British Columbia. Prince…

On the Road to Prince Rupert


A week ago last Saturday I drove with two friends to Prince Rupert, a town about an hour and a half away from Terrace. Prince Rupert is a port town, that is becoming a major player in shipping from North America to China. We didn't get a chance to see the container port, but I'd love to stop by there…

Interviewed on CBC Radio Daybreak North with Betsy Trumpener


I just had my first radio interview on CBC Radio Daybreak North - speaking with Betsy Trumpener. I think it went just fine, although I was certainly nervous! I met Betsy last year at the Terrace Writer's Conference and had a great time with her during the weekend program. She is hilarious, a terrific writer, and really has the knack…

Happy Easter


We spent Easter morning at the Spotted Horse Nursery here in Terrace, BC, where Kathy Jackson and her family put on an amazing Easter egg hunt every year. Somehow the weather is always beautiful and today was no exception. It was cool when we arrived but warmed up during the morning and by afternoon we were in shorts. While we…

An Old-Fashioned Fashion Show


Yesterday was the annual fashion show to raise money for Heritage Park in Terrace, BC. A group of women, young and old, took to the catwalk to show off historical fashions from the museum's collection and from closets around town. We were served tea in china cups and offered scones and fruit. Very yummy and lots of fun to see…
