About me

I've been on GoY since Feb. 2008. We lived in a small city on the St. Lawrence River until December of 2010 when we moved to Madawaska Township, about 1-1/2 hr. drive west of Ottawa.
Our property is about 8 acres, hill (forest) and valley(garden). Lots of nature and fresh air. The last 5-1/2 years have been a learning experience and since I've all this space to fill it's been a lesson in patience and perseverance. Hub and I are two oldies trying to live in harmony with the nature all around us.
