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.

Fall Cover Up

Just finished this quick cover up Poncho for Chloe. I hope this will fit her for some time. A thank You for a helping hand. Chloe’s “Grosi” is always so ready to help me in need. Thanks for being a friend.

This pattern is called Robin Poncho. You too can purchase this on Ravelry for your self. Or download on her blog http://www.mukicrafts.com as far as I know…

I had been given 5 skeins of yarn called “Sugar Baby Stripes” by Mary Maxim. Only used 2.5 for the size 6. Great yarn for this kind of job.

Needles At Work

….after some time not really having my knitting needles in my hand …. Just not sure why that happen. But for past 6 months I have kind of lost my desire for knitting.

Have You ever felt like that? You have a hobby that is your passion, all of a sudden You have no interest in it anymore?

Some of You may say ….Oh no! This is unheard off. My knitting has been part of my daily life.

Well I think this little poncho request has brought back some nice memories of knitting. And how good it feels to be creating something handmade.

Spring Moments By The Lake

April 2019 Lake Simcoe

Some of you probably know I have been going on drives to enjoy our Lake Simcoe here In Ontario, Canada. Usually with no destination in place. My truck just tales me somewhere to the water.

It’s absolutely beautiful to feel the wind in my hair. To listen to the waves crushing onto the shore.

There are different seasons I have seen up there.

Today I’ll show you how it was last April… Pretty windy and rather cold.. bust totally peaceful.

I’ll show you more warmer days soon too…. Sunshine all around now….

Canadian Tiger Swallowtail

Also known as Canadian Tiger Sallowtail….

Beautiful to see them flutter by… I honestly can say I was so happy to see this one flying around in my backyard. Have not seen one for so many years. We usually have the Monarch butterflies in our area.. but seeing this Yellow Tail butterfly made me happy…

I since have seen even a Black Swallowtail. But it zipped along so fast and not resting anywhere on my flowers a picture just was not possible….

Does anyone know if this one belongs to the monarch type Butterflies family?

Do You look Into The Sky

Let’s go outside tonight and see the sky!

Come with me …. right now.. it is so beautiful outside seeing the Stars and start to dream…of happiness.

Sure I hear,

You may already have that. I believe in the stars… the dreams. Making wishes on a shooting star….

Make a wish on a spent Dandelion is one of my favourits…

Dreams don’t lie .. wishes can come true… believe in your heart…

Sometimes destinies have plans for you we never know what the days will bring us…

Moments of Peace

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
