~ Calii Love in Toronto ~

~ The little Town of Ymir ~

I started out the morning with a walk to Sheep Creek with the dogs, Denny and Donner. Another gorgeous hot day, 27 C, and not so smokey from the nearby fires. British Columbia is having a bad time with fires this year, worse than any other!! Even in Whistler, we had so much smoke, you couldn’t see the mountains … only a very, very faint … Continue reading ~ The little Town of Ymir ~

~ On the Road to Salmo, B.C. ~

We left WHISTLER exactly at 6:03 p.m., drove south towards VANCOUVER, then along Highway 3 to PRINCETON where we booked the Sandman Inn for the night. (Dogs allowed!) After a decent night’s sleep, a walk with Donner the dog, we drove into the little town of PRINCETON for a picnic brunch in their little garden central.

~ A Crispy, Juicy, Crunchy, Raw Black Bean, Vegy, Fruit Salad ~

So as I was stretching, and doing my Ab work-out at the Gym, I was envisioning a crispy, juicy, crunchy, raw salad for dinner. We dropped by Nesters again to buy a few more groceries, even though we were just there yesterday! No matter…. here we go…. (I try to always buy organic)….. So I just threw together…. quick and simple…. 1 can of black … Continue reading ~ A Crispy, Juicy, Crunchy, Raw Black Bean, Vegy, Fruit Salad ~

Every Thursday morning, between 8 and 11 a.m., I go to Alta Bistro and pick up my Bread by Ed. Sometimes one loaf, sometimes two!

~ A Simple Vegan Spaghetti Sauce and the Value of Potassium ~

I realize I have already posted a Spaghetti Dinner but I like this one better, so I had to share …. plus I’ve learned, in the meantime, how important Potassium is! Start by dicing up an onion, and 4 cloves of garlic, then saute them in a big pot with a little water. Maybe 5 minutes. Then add 2 stalks of celery diced up, 2 … Continue reading ~ A Simple Vegan Spaghetti Sauce and the Value of Potassium ~

~ A Visit from Berlin to Whistler to Victoria to Vancouver ~

My dear friend, Michael, from Berlin came out to visit me for 10 days (April 24 – May 3). I did have to work a bit when he was here, but I could curtail my hours somewhat and enjoy some time with my very good friend that I have known for 33 years! We did walk around Lost Lake, where we did actually get lost! There … Continue reading ~ A Visit from Berlin to Whistler to Victoria to Vancouver ~

~ A Walk in Squamish ~

Last weekend (April 15), it was gorgeously sunny and I had to go to Squamish (a 40 min. drive south from Whistler) for yet another vet appointment for Donner our dog.  She had been spade a couple of weeks prior and her incision was a little too pink and the doctors were concerned and so gave her antibiotics. This was a follow-up appointment, her third … Continue reading ~ A Walk in Squamish ~
