Beautiful Fall Season

Summer has come and gone again…

Many days during the fall season I have gone for short walks. Well at first I just drove with my truck to wherever it took me. Stopped wherever I felt like it.

Not sure if you ever do that?

But it totally feels good, to just go explore the surrounding places. I have come across so many beautiful spots. It’s mind blowing a little how many times I come across wildlife too. That I would not see otherwise.

Just not to long ago I was able to see a fox just so at peace in my present. I have absolutely never seen anything so beautiful. He never even noticed I was there. You can see this fox in one of my pictures below.

Fall Has Started

OHHH noooo..

First day of Fall was yesterday and we where out on probably my last sailing of the year. Lake Simcoe has some good winds at time too and beautiful sunset moments!

lol I am writing this now as I am getting a text from hubby…looks like we may go out tomorrow evening again… how can I refuse that!

If weather conditions are good.. why not.

Some of the past weeks sailing times have been pretty nice especially with the sunsets and seeing them from the water.

I am so looking forward to my sailing trip coming up in the deep winter here…

perhaps I’ll go ice-fishing before that too… hahaha.

Toronto Here We Visit

My Mom and my Girl Fiend have visited my home just past August… I tell You I have been driving to many place with them… They left I am in driving with drawl no since they left.. Smile Reni and Mutt I loved it

( Reni und Mutt mir haet das guet do. Emol us em Dorf choene go und oepis ume nan fahre!)

So we planed to take the Go Train to Toronto… but I said to myself… Lets drive I know where to park wright by Ripply’s Aquarium! Easy… absolutely! Just dont’ go right at 6-8am.

Parking lot was EMPTY!! LOL I thought a car was being towed away so chatted with the guy to make sure I am ok to park here…. ohhh how cool! he was giving me all kinds of tips to make sure I don’t get ever towed….LOL

So up we go to the top of the CN Tower… sooo many decades ago remember there was “Sparkle’s” the dance club… Let’s say 35 years ago .. Ahhhh my club for so many years totally amazing time… Dancing Saturday night Disco time. NOOOO more it now is a platform to walk around and see the big city from the top.. Oh you should have seen the lights at that time 35 year’s ago… totally amazing….

We ended up even at the Distilary Are after the CN tower…an drove up Young Street from Down town Toronto to Richmond Hill … omg 2 1/2 hours later I said I had enough I am going to the HYW…… day to remember.

Fall Is Coming

Fall is almost here and with that I ask what do I do now… Getting lots of suggestions… like Snowboarding, hiking, and curling. All sound wonderful.

One thing I have decided is … I’ll be teaching a class at my work …

Since I learn to sail and I can honestly say, Sailing me ? that I thought I’ll never do ….I believe I can do the teaching in sewing a rug together too…. Since I have already done 2 and made even bags from them.

My thoughts also go to learning another language… like Spanish. We have lots of friends I believe that can chat with me in Spanish… right Celilia, Isabelle, Monika, I am sure there are a view more that I am missing here…

hola,como estas? Estoy bien.

Yes I know there is that wiggle I need to figure out how to get that on my keyboard…I know there is a way to do that but forgot what tap I have to push… something about hold down the “o” lol

Sailing on Lake Simcoe

Beautiful night out with hubby sailing last night. Grassroots Sailing club boat called “Waterbaby” I totally love to open the boat up. Though I was a little nervous more so because it is just the 2 of us on the boat. It does go through my head what if he, the skipper in my case now my hubby gets knocked over board… would I remember how to do the COB … and that single handed? Which I have never done before….so last night I was happy he had the tiller in his hands and I therefore was able to take pictures as I helped with taking and jibbing.. perfect night…to enjoy each others company. ( PS one of the pictures has the boom and sail all worped… lol hand where shaking…haha.)

Lake Simco is wonderful to sail on and has some nice spots to see too. This is just in the Bay of Cooks Bay. Further North you come to Snake Island and Fox Island.

I have sailed all around Fox Island this past summer ( See slide above) on mentoring sail day on a Saturday. It took me (us) 2.5 hours to get from Cooks Bay Marina to Fox Island and that is with a good wind, I believe 12 Knots of wind… I tell you I loved it when the boat was healing over a lot more then the calm moments. What a thrill that was…

Sailing season is almost coming to it’s end…for now….sad.

Celebrating 35 Years Later

Hard to believe I have lived in Canada already 35 Years as of today… how time goes by. I remember stepping out of the Toronto Pearson International Airport … The heat was OHHH wow… overtaking my breath… +35 if I remember correctly.

My so called “Family” waiting with there 6 month old baby Jacqueline as well, lol…My name became “Jackie” for the next year. … as her Nanny.

I sometimes wonder what she is up too now?…Woodbridge has changes sooo much! It was all farm field at that time…If you are from Ontario .. Do you remember the Drive-In on Hyw 400?

Now movie Theaters and Malls and totally no farm field anymore….I am speechless at times…

Villa Park Dive ( lol I thought I am coming to life in a Villa…HAHAH was I wrong! ) was my home for less then a year… no so good ending to that family story…

Best times after that was finding a wonderful family in Downsview… So much love they have still for one another…. I am thankful for the Hazel’s they gave me a absolutely wonderful memory. Just wish I had kept in contact more…

However we all have our destinies we need to follow… and never say never. Look into the future it is never to late to reconnect…. and make new memories…..and new friends.

Thanks for being my friends for sooo many memories

Nothing Is Promised In This Live….

It is my moments to go for a drive and just drive …

Not to long ago on a Tuesday…

……no destination in mind usually.

My Pick up truck takes me along the county roads… I make sure I know how to back track my ways too. GPS yeah but my GPS is driving on a road that does’t exist most of the times … LOL

Honestly my truck has taken me to the Lake Simcoe lately … or to the smaller Churches around them. I was about to leave that church ground when something just pulled me over on my walks….

A Rose found just like that in the grounds… In Moments when I needed a sign…My Dad always loved roses… What are the odds of that…

Totally amazing to see the old grave stones and the beautiful doors and windows on the churches.
