Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

Pole dancer?? Never knew you were Polish.

BeachMama said...

LOL, nancy, I saw the pole dancer too! It would be a hoot if it was true, you could teach us a few things ;)

Silver Creek Mom said...

That's one of the lies. No Nancy I'm not polish! LMAO! There are a few more, but you might have to know me pretty well to get the rest.

I did do Belly dancing for a couple of years as exercise. It was amazing and I wasn't half bad, although I was abit smaller at the time.

Marla said...

Thanks for my laugh of the day, Nancy (with Sharon's help)!

Um, do you really have cows? Because I like cows a lot - not just to eat, I mean. They have such nice eyes.

Silver Creek Mom said...

yes we do. Really and for true, and they are not mine, we rent our farm to my FIL and he keeps cows here over winter and some in the summer. You shold come by sometime I'd love to show you. (And drink on the back deck) I'd even put you up over night. I have room.

Silver Creek Mom said...

OH and Mark...75 is comfortable but we do get up to the mid 90's not 100 like you.
