What's A Girl To Do?

Building a bird bath for Sparrow.


When Sparrow requests a bird bath, what's a girl to do? 

Well, I got busy! 

I tried Craigslist first. No luck. I researched several garden shops and home building centres. Too expensive. Much as I love you Little Sparrow, I can't really justify $100 for a bird bath. It was time to put my creative hat on!

I went to my local thrift shop to see what I could find. And I found some real winners! I have a heavy duty deep bowl for a base, and a large really neat  shallow blue plate with a horse on it!

Tunes For Tuesday - Amy Bishop

Amy Bishop is a Canadian treasure.


Now you know, I speak from my heart when I say my Westies are my Besties! But sometimes, you just have to colour outside the lines. Especially when it comes to a voice like Amy Bishop

In my defence, I did hear Amy perform at an intimate house concert in Comox on the weekend. That counts as West Coast, right?!

What a wonderful evening. Amy Bishop is so funny!!! And that voice. She is like a chameleon! I laughed, I cried.


Top Ten Signs You Might Have a Liver / Gallbladder Imbalance

Spring has sprung. Time for a Jin Shin Do Acupressure Session.


It's Spring!! So why do so many of us feel a bit sluggish in the Spring?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Spring and the Wood element are represented by the Liver and the Gallbladder. So, as we enter Spring, certain conditions associated with the Liver / Gallbladder Meridian may become more noticeable.

1. Mood Swings and Irritability; The emotional symptoms associated with Liver imbalances mimic the physical stagnation that happens. You may notice yourself feeling extra irritable or frustrated, and more easily annoyed.
