What I Loved In October

Last night we turned our clocks back and as I write this the sun has long set. I served dinner at 6:30, the city sparkling outside the windows, candles burning on the table. It really feels like the dark half of the year now.  A storm came in yesterday and dumped 75mm of rain on…

My Fall Movie List

Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.  I really appreciate living in a place that goes through all 4 seasons. I enjoy them for the individual experiences they bring. I…

What I Loved In August

The sun is shining brightly through the windows, even as it nears setting.  September first arrived and the temperature dipped noticeably.  We were up at the house in Cultus Lake this weekend.  Every year my fiancee’s family spends a week at the “cabin”, a palatial home built with the true feeling of the Pacific Northwest…

Movies That Get Me In The Mood For Summer

Every year around February and after our long dreary winter’s on the coast. Winters that can bring up to 60 days of consecutive rain. There’s a week of sunshine. A week where I step outside in the morning and see purple crocuses sprouting and the earth smells warm and sweet and it hits me:  It’s…

April Favourites- New Hood, White Teeth and Flying Pigs(?)

May ushered in with a small heat wave on the coast.  I set up my own private beach on our patio and got a good 2 days of sunbathing in which was delightful.  Books, music, a cold drink with a view of the yachts in False Creek and the coastal mountains that remain snow capped…
