It was that moment between being awake and asleep, just as you’re slipping into slumber. We heard a huge thud that shook us into being wide awake.
“What was that?” I whispered to my husband who was already sound asleep. Furniture falling over? An earthquake? An intruder? He got up to investigate while I stayed under the covers. He checked everywhere: even the garage and basement, then returned with a puzzled look on his face. Nothing. We couldn’t have both imagined this earth-shattering sound.
The next morning a neighbour told him that a huge tree had fallen in the forest behind our house. Our young explorers were among the first to arrive on scene.
We thought it wood make an unusual backdrop for my newly thrifted jacket. With some days feeling more like autumn it was the perfect day to wear it.
SNAP … CRACKLE … POP
This lightweight empire-style jacket is super soft, made in Canada and has cute plaid fabric buttons and zig-zag stitching for detail. It’s perfect for spring weather in Ontario when temperatures fluctuate more than a woman’s mood swings.
Most of my jackets lately (almost all are pre-loved) are colourful or pastel shades. However, I still love earthy tones and neutrals and it depends on the day what tickles my fancy. The warm greyge shade is a bend of grey and beige.
I’ve worn these corduroy leggings numerous times on my blog and even more in real life.
These are fashion boots rather than functional ones that we need during winter in Canada.
My dry-weather boots are faux suede fabric, which I purchased in California, Christmas 2006. They’re not suitable for Canadian winters because they aren’t warm enough and the salt, slush and snow would ruin them. I noticed some women wearing boots in California when I was wearing sandals.
So what’s happening in your neck of the woods?

That’s the message of GOOD FRIDAY and RESURRECTION SUNDAY!
I’ll be celebrating the Easter season with dancing. Through the years I get invited to teach celebration dance to people from various denominations, as well as doing worship dance presentations. Just as the Bible says in Psalm 150:4 Praise Him with tambourines and dancing!
What a joy it is to know the love of God and rejoice together for what He has done for us! What a beautiful world He created for us and how marvellous are His ways!
Thanks be to our wonderful Saviour who loves us with an everlasting love! ❤️
As for Easter dinner, no animals will be on the menu. We enjoy the abundance of God’s provision that He designed for our bodies as He said in Genesis 1:29. I live a happy, healthy life without causing misery and cruelty to animals.
There’s a galore of vegan recipes on the Internet
You love dogs, you love horses. Why not show compassion to other animals who suffer needlessly? I know most people won’t watch videos of what goes on at factory farms and slaughter houses because we don’t want to be reminded of this bloodshed, it might spoil our appetites. Please consider the cruelty that goes on behind closed doors. The dear animals that are then packaged in plastic and put into the freezer section of our grocery stores.
Please don’t eat us!
Your fridge is not a cemetery. Your body is not a graveyard.
❤️ Choose life
❤️ Choose health
❤️ Choose a more compassionate world
Thank you for reading and may God bless you with the abundance of nutritious, plant-based foods to share with family and friends this blessed Easter season!! ❤️
