My Neck of the Woods – April 16

Howdy, loves! Happy Sunday, wherever you are in the world! I hope you’ve all had a lovely day; whether you celebrate Easter, or Passover, or neither of those things.

Spring seems to be in its prime now, and I’m savouring every moment of it. Today was cloudy and occasionally spitting rain, but that didn’t stop Jon’s family and I from having a lovely homemade curry lunch and playing bingo at Aunt Angela’s place.  Several of us donated to the bingo prize pile, so the table inside Angela’s backyard “pub” table was loaded with really neat things. I was jam-packed from the delicious lunch and dessert, and adding Prosecco and a lot of laughs to the mix, I really enjoyed the afternoon even though the breeze was cold, and I won some goodies in the end!

The rest of the week has consisted of me exercising a lot, trying to get outside as much as possible. I’ve also been gathering new reading material, which I’ll add in a new post soon!

Here’s the week in photos!

Another chilly walk today. I didn’t want to leave the house, but I’m glad I got out there and got calories burnt!

This little fellow landed on the outside of our bedroom window and I used my phone camera’s zoom on it for this neat closeup.

A few days ago I received my package from Japanese Candy Ninja, and it’s full of sweet and savoury snacks straight from Japan. Some of these animal biscuits cracked me up with their shapes!

A neighbour’s tree that I look forward to seeing bloom every spring!

Having tea and waiting for dinner (salad, garden peas, mash, and poached salmon with parsley sauce for those foodies out there) at The Greyhound in Boundary.

Here’s a little-known fact about me: I used to be a My Little Pony collector. That’s right! My love for my childhood collection grew to a hobby when I hit my late teens, and for several years I collected these lovely toys and enjoyed displaying them. I was even part of a few collecting communities and made friends who I still talk to twelve years on! So when I saw this mug on clearance at, I immediately threw it in my cart!

A peek at Angela’s fabulous desserts. Jon’s favourite was the carrot cheesecake on the right, and mine was the chocolate one on the far left!
