Loading My Warping Reel

The last project of my loom has come off… New one to begin. With that said I had to figure out how to do use my warping reel. First time ever.

Sure it was kind off unsure of what to do next. But it actually was not to complicated to figuring it out. “Yes I Can” Just followed the instructions as in many other things … Someone tells me to read the manuals… or go to YouTub. So I did and look it up. Seemed to work out not to bad.

Love The Sound Of Birds

There is something so beautiful to wake up in the morning with the sound of birds singing. I love to have the window open and hear them sing to me.. well so it seems at least to me..

I love to take there pictures too. So we have Yellow Finch now feeding on the tree in our backyard lately.

First Weaving Projects

Yehh finally all finished my first project done on my Leclerc table loom.

I think I bought this Loom form my colleague about a year ago. I put all my effort in to it then to learn how to weave. But then I got stuck on how to take my project “A Scarf” off the loom.

In some of the pictures I am just showing you how some of my stuff was set up at the end of this project. I am honestly not sure why I was scared to remove this…

So I have just simply worked on this particular scarf to get myself familiar on how to weave. I love how this turned out…

Homemade Salad Dressing

Not long ago I thought why not do another creamy Salad Dressing for when I have lettuce or cabbage again.

I have had this recipe for so many years now and every time I make it it turns out different. I have the base ingredient all written down. But honestly I am always change things up. Even in my knitting I modify the pattern usually. Unless it is a order for someone special.

So here is my video of the the Creamy Salad Dressing I made from scratch:

Grenada, I’ll Be back One Day

This last morning at the beach was the perfect ending to this amazing trip…

Had this stray dog pop himself down right by my side as I was reading. I thought this was to funny…

Memories and Joy in my life.

I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life .

…..Ah Yes already a month passed. It has been so amazing and fun… I am speechless with all I have see and experianced and that in only 23 days.

Do You see what I see?

Beach Day on Grand Anse, Grenada

Another beautiful Day…Monday January 20th. hearing the ocean surf. They (Resort) say close the balcony doors when you go to sleep…

Not what I want to do… I feel safe and love to falling asleep and waking up with listening to the waves crushing onto the beach. Kind of miss the rocking to sleep on the “Lady Natalie” though. The ground I walk on is moving to the waves….

Going to be another beautiful day by the beach… thinking of where the Lady Natalie may be sailing to on her next adventure as I watch he drift away to in the Sea…what are the chances I’ll be here again one day I ask myself?

Every Day here is beautiful….

My Last Evening sunset joy and happiness.

I say Thank You to all that made this trip so special and a joy in my Life

The Royal Clipper in the harbor of St. George, Grenada
Last evening by the Beach.. Grand Anse
Can you see The Royal Clipper in the distant. So beautiful she has I believe 5 Masts if I recall that correctly.

memory and love in my life.

Umbrella, Grand Anse Beach

This was totally something I have never done before… Go to a Restaurant and eat on my own.

I was hungry and was tired of eating on my own for past days. So thought I’ll go check out this “Umbrella’s Beach Bar” that the Resort I stayed in recommend and it was soooo close…

Cool I can walk on the sandy white beach to my restaurant and don’t have to worry about drinking and driving… OMG I am going to sit down and have a meal on my own… glad I did!

…shortly after I ordered my supper and yes glass of wine… this place started to rock… Band, that I didn’t know started to play and believe me this bar was rocking along all night…Absolutely a must visit if you are ever at Grand Anse Beach in Grenada!!! This bar was totally a hot spot to be at…

Red red Wine ….

Walking home to the resort I stopped by the resort directly to my place Coyaba you should have heard the music playing there.. so romantic, I decide to sat for a little and just listen to it.

Grand Anse Beach Is Awaiting You

Wake up girl, it’s a new day …I had 6 pillows to snuggle up to. OMG that is luxury…Bed was sooo crazy big. I could sleep in any direction and my toes never stuck out of the bed..LOL

Looking out to the my perfect view and hearing the ocean … what more can I wish for on this day of Sunday, January 19. 2020. Most are dealing with snow back home..

I am the lucky one to walk on the white sand of Grand Anse in Grenada.

Walking in the white sand…
Making memories for my heart.

Seeing the Luxurious Resorts that are $$$+ for one night say… Cool yes look at the places… seriously? Not one person was there!

I think I am the lucky one staying at Allamanda Beach Resort. I have the staff at this Resort talking to me enjoying the beautiful sunshine in the garden… I believe that is what counts. This gentleman working there said he used to live in Scarborough. How cool is that… Grand Anse Beach is Beautiful

I am surrounded by absolutely beautiful sunrise, beach, the water is my joy, luxury, happyiness, amazing people, happiness, restaurants, sunset….

Peaceful joy in my heart and mind

Day 9: Sailing Back to Grenada

Getting up In Paradise “Carriacou” one last time… before crew needs to go off Boat tomorrow Day 10 in Grenada. So this time we are not forgetting to put the dingy on deck…

This sailing to Grenada 30 NM of sailing took us I believe 6 hours if I remember correctly. The wind was good. As we sailed on auto pilot across nice soft Sea… LOL I think their is probably a proper sailing term for this.. But I don’t know that yet… I so far have only taken the SKS. But gone to many mentoring evening sails with Grassroots Sailing Centre in past year.

It looks like we all had some moments to be yourself. This back passage made us sleepy… some did read a book, some drifted off into lalal land. Crocheting for a little or soaking up the sunshine on the deck for a bit.. guess who:-) leave it up to me to bring my passion for knitting and crocheting along on any trip.

Arrived in St. George at the Harbor. Look who is right beside us… and in front of us was a Sailboat that had 2 couples on it with their young kids. Sailed across the ocean from France and are on their sailing adventure for 1 full year.. soooo cool. I wish I could do that one day. It was so much fun to be in the Caribbean and hear the children songs I grew up in Switzerland in Swiss German. Honestly It was perfect!!

After a little relaxing hours docked at the marina. We wondered over to the Victory Bar and Restaurant in St. Georges Bay. Very nice place for a beautiful last night together with sailing team.

You should have seen some of these big Yachts and the wealth that goes with it.. Unbelievable. The lighting in them and going into the water..

With this night, my sailing time has come to it’s end here in Grenada… sad moment but I don’t think it will be the last time I was here.

Paradise Beach at Carriacou

After a fantastic relaxing afternoon on Sandy Beach with sunset, perfect turquoise water we did get a bit hungry..

So we had the water taxi come and get us and take us over to Paradise Beach… What a ride… that guy is definitely speeding, or so it felt.. Almost like a roller coaster ride… just on water. What a thrill…loved it!

Paradise Beach Club is another heaven on Earth I think. Allison the owner with her staff so full of smiles and joy for what they do. I am so in love with your place Alison.

A lady was at the bar believe from the England with her hubby.. playing music from her computer.. so cool. Let’s go dancing I said to the crew …as we wait for the food.

Ah so leave it up to me to go first. SO I did chatting with the lady..she said go ask my hubby… ok. dancing we are.. next lets change it up a bit. You go get a lady, I go get a gentleman.. and so on we danced till almost all where on the sandy beach dancing.. It just takes one person to start.. voila it a fun night… under the tropical sky on the beach by Paradise Beach Club

Allison your food is amazing Your staff.. Just love them. Thank you so much for the Conch shell you kindly gave me as a memory.

Allison and I … this night was amazing.
This was just so funny. Clinton and I pretended to have a phone conversation using a Shell…
” Hi Clinton, can you hear me?
Ahh no It’s all fuzzy to me…full of ocean sounds…”
LOL
Happy sounds
Smiles…
Good fun to have… makes the heart happy too.

My heart was happy and so loved this evening… chatting on the deck under the stars… as I was falling a sleep on deck. Kapt’n Dave was worried and said you all should really moved in to cockpit… Waking up in morning with pillow under my head and blanket on me…;-) such a wonderful feeling. Thank YOU.

“Memories …Some call me crazy for sleeping on the balcony in Florida last February so I could hear the ocean. Memories to remember…”

“My Thoughts Being Creative”

I read this somewhere on a post so true…

“Change your viewpoint, go out and “be interested” in your surroundings and FIND something interesting to photograph or FIND something interesting about life to photograph.”

My thoughts on this is:
The Anchor Is The Center Of Your Heart.
Stay True To Your Heart.
Don’t Forget To Dream And Be Yourself

I find to many times we do as people think we need to do and follow…
I believe in just following what is right for me.

Honestly I don’t even change my pictures much. Possible at times crop them, but that is it. I try to see the photo as I am and that is cool … Just me.

It is as we see it and why change and make them more glam?

Smiles I do the same in my crafting…( Knitting, Sewing etc.)
Lets be us and not make the pictures etc. what it is not…..

Day 6: Grenada to Carriacou, Caribbean Island

So this is now my 6th day on Lady Natalie. The 43 foot Sailboat of Dave’s he also is running Sailabration Cruising. You too could be here one day if you are interested in sailing. I can’t believe look I am sailing today again…Looks like Annabelle had some fun with my camera.

.

This morning we left Halifax Harbor one of my absolute fave spot…

looks good to sail to Carriacou today. So I am on the helm for about I think it was close to 2-3 hours. Loved every moment of it. Such a totally different experience from Lace Simcoe to Ocean sailing. On a bigger sailboat too, sailboat duel helm wheal instead of a tiller…

After several hours on helm Look at what we got into next… .

3-4 meter Swells coming from 2 different directions Now…
“Waves and seas are described by the height from trough to crest; swell also is described by the direction it’s coming from.
” SO if I am correct we had waves and swells coming from 2 directions, hitting each other ?
Am I correct with this thought.?

Big swells are diminishing a little but not by much.. Look at our Annabelle she took the helm… So cool..impressed… I wish I would have too.

Way to go Annabelle!

Arrived at Sandy Beach.. and anchored for tonight.. Smiles I keep on saying this is “PARADIES” this is for sure…what till I show you …tortoise waters all around us….
