Jennie Fitzkee catches up with one of her children Noah this last week as he prepares to head off to Iceland in his gap year. Jennie shares how both his sister Emma and then Noah made a difference to the classroom during those early years as their teacher.

Debby Gies shares her home with us which is a condo in an amazing complex in Toronto. It comes with many perks and built at a time when units were much bigger and certain legal benefits are now in place to protect the residents. Sounds pretty good.

Robbie Cheadle shares a bittersweet family get together over the weekend with Christmas in July and a farewell to a sister who is moving to Cape Town many hours drive away. A sumptious feast and the post includes the recipe for Beef and Stout Stew.

There are two photographers that stun with their images and the first of those is Cindy Knoke who has captured the imperialistic and all-knowing look of a selection of raptors… Magnificent.

The other photographer that captures wildlife in such a beautiful way is Wayne Barnes of Tofino Photography. This week a gentle giant with a love of Sea Asparagus, which by the way is a pre-seasoned delicious vegetable served hot or cold.

  1. I have been missing some of my posts so I’m glad of the collective messages.
    I enjoy reading the posts from the magazine through the week and often save them for when I can take time to read.
    But I do read the posts.

    Anyway I enjoyed this round up.
    Jennie’s story about inspiring young children was very poignant.
    Here in England I struggled at times to get children to sing our national Anthem.
    Identity is important.
    And as for the Lord’s Prayer!
    We don’t need to blast it at children but we do need to be unafraid to 🎶 or pray.

    There seems to be so much pressure for inclusivity that we are afraid to be ourselves.

    I enjoyed the trip around Toronto with Debbie.
    My godmother lives in Toronto and we had a fantastic holiday there.
    A different story.
    She also lived in a condo in the north of Toronto. One of three blocks.
    Toronto was a place I certainly would love to visit again
