Pulling up the quilt.

Heavy snow, all through the night.

Winter on the way.


A chill in the air.

Wrapping my scarf, one more time.

Snowflakes from the sky.


A windy, cold night.

Branches strewn across the path.

Winter on the way.


PS: We had a bit of snow here in Interior BC, the past couple of days, but it’s melting now.

Winter IS on the way though.

Hope you enjoy these three haiku poems, on the cusp of this magical season to come.

What is your weather doing? Any snow?

Have a wonderful week! :)

As any of my regular readers already know, I’m an avid online reviewer, including at (I’m in the top 2000 reviewers there), at my 3 blogs and also at various commercial sites online.

I signed up at the site a while ago and wrote a few reviews there since then.

My questions re: their censoring reviews came up recently when I noted that my review of The Preserved Seed Restaurant in Nelson, BC which had been posted for several months on the Trip Advisor site, had now bee...

A chuckle to share courtesy of one of my fav blogs hosted by the talented Carl D’Agostino.

His cartoons are always a hoot, so original and yes, they do make me smile, every time a new one shows up in my WP Reader. Thanks Carl! ;)

I’m back from my trip and playing catch-up on the computer right now.

Hope you have a wonderful week and will be around to visit all my fav blogs asap. :)

Hugs, G

epson printer

If there are any printer cartridge experts reading this, here’s my question…

I have an Epson XP- 310 printer that I don’t like and plan to replace soon.

Right now though, I have a FULL black ink cartridge in this printer but the color cartridges are running low or are empty. I’d like to use up this black cartridge before I get rid of this printer permanently.

I noted online that there is a way to override their (silly!!!) defaults of requiring all the cartridges to have ink in them, even when yo...

I read a quote similar to the one above at a WP blog, a couple of weeks ago.

It really made me stop and think about this simple but rather profound statement.

So many of us fear changes in life.

But without making changes when necessary, everything stays as it is or changes in ways beyond our control.

Change CAN be scary. :(

But it can also provide a beginning and a new, exciting direction down the path of life. :)

Are you afraid of big changes in life or do you embrace them?
