Nicols' weekly here. She writes like she knows you.
to May 26th
This week the Sun
moves into Gemini, joining Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all in the same
sign. (Forget the twins, we've got quadruplets!) Unpredictable Uranus
squares off with powerful Pluto and, on Friday, the Full Moon in
Sagittarius awaits us. It's a busy week. Everyone will be hustling,
talking to neighbours, friends and siblings, reading and writing, and
coping with detours and the unexpected.

Our Hard Working Mayor
Mayor Sharon Gaetz
1:31am! Oh my goodness
Craig. I hope you were able to get back to sleep. Jim and I have had a
wonderful long weekend. Jim spoke today at Greendale MB Church and then we
went out for lunch with some dear friends from Kelowna who lost their
daughter in a terrible accident 9 years ago :-(
It was bittersweet
catching up with them. We went for a long walk up at Hicks Lake and then
went to visit our kids who are camping up at Cultus. And we have all day
tomorrow - just emails to catch up on - and maybe some gardening...it is a
beautiful thing to take some time off :-) I hope you get to do the same
Craig - I think we might share the same kind of schedule.
