Welcome to Friday! Did anybody sleep after that first NBA finals game on Canadian soil last night? History!
 
I don't think you had to be Jessica Fletcher or Nancy Drew to figure out our happy news today based on yesterday's hint. A few thought that perhaps we were getting a puppy when I said "tickled pink." Um, no. I don't think that's in our future. And sweet Molly is puppy enough, even at 14-and-a-half!

The publicity machine is a funny thing and sometimes - if you're lucky - it churns at a fast and furious pace and sweeps you into all kinds of wonderful directions, as I've found over the past few days.

Welcome to Wednesday! It's a busy one here as we get set for a webinar this afternoon (recorded for those who can't join us, plus there's another planned for an evening in June) from AMA Waterways about the October 2020 Rhine Cruise with a Canadian Twist. We're taking over an entire riverboat, Mike Cooper and I and all of our fantastic guests, and can't wait to learn more about it - as will you today - and our trip from Switzerland to The Netherlands during Canadian Thanksgiving 2020.

Just a quick note on a webinar happening tomorrow at 2 pm EDT to discuss the October 2020 AMA Waterways riverboat cruise that Mike Cooper and I are hosting - taking over the ENTIRE BOAT with just our group! If you've never taken part in a webinar, not to worry, it's just my second. You need to pre-register, so just click here, and please join us tomorrow at 2 pm EDT. If you can't, we'll make it available for you at another time, plus there's an evening webinar planned for June.

Well, how nice it is to see you back here again! I've so been missing writing lo, these past two weeks, but my mind and my editor/IT guy/husband needed a break. A rest and recharge. (Except for the massive excitement of Saturday night's Raptors' win! Now...we await Thursday....)
 
With just one week until I'm in the GTA again full-speed-ahead for book events, there are a couple of BIG announcements!

Hi there -
 
I'll be back with fresh journals on Monday, May 27, but I wanted to tell you something I hope will be of interest to you. A NEW DATE has been added to appearances in June - an afternoon in Markham - and I thought journal readers should be among the very first to know.
 
As you may have seen in the What's Up section of my homepage, I'm coming to Ontario the week of June 2:
 
June 3 - Indigo Mississauga (7 pm in conversation with CHFI's Michelle Butterly)

Welcome to Friday! I'm saying good-bye here for two weeks as we raise our heads and close our laptops (for longer periods than just overnight) and Rob and I reconnect with each other over the next little bit. As you may know, tomorrow marks four years since Lauren left us. The next day - well, you know what Sunday is. And if you're celebrating it, I hope that you and/or your mom (if you're lucky enough to have her with you) enjoy your day.

What wonderful things will happen today? That's the question with which I start every morning: I ask Rob to tell me something good (he always opens his email first) or I ask myself what wonderful thing will happen today.

Welcome to Wednesday! You've heard of birthday parties, Tupperware parties, cocktail parties, lingerie parties, bachelorette parties and even chicken pox parties, right? Well, let me introduce you to the most UNUSUAL party I've ever heard of. And, like something out of Studio 54 back in the day, everyone is eventually going to end up with their undies off.
 
Now that I have your undivided attention....

SO...this just in...yesterday afternoon I received an email from Gerry at New Wave Travel and it's looking like an exclusive taking-over-the-boat Rhine Cruise on the AmaStella in October 2020 is becoming a reality. I'll keep you posted; right now we're making sure of details. But I got that note just as I was sitting down to pen this today, so I had to pass it along. More to come when I get back from my little two week sabbatical.

This is Mental Health Week in Canada and I'm so glad to have something really meaningful to share here, thanks to a former morning competitor.

Well now - it appears I'm not the only person who was affected by that young woman off to work in BC Conservation (or hoping to be) and who was the subject of yesterday's journal.

Have you ever met or had a conversation with someone - in person or online - who absolutely shifted the way you thought about something? I did, and it happened in the most unlikely way. The discussion wasn't politics or religion or any of the "heavy" topics of which we tend (or used to tend) to stay clear of in polite conversation. The topic was hunting. And here's how it came up:

Today, as we begin a brand new month, I have to share with you something that has been eating at me for a couple of weeks now.
 
Just two days after we arrived home from Amsterdam, my new friend Nancy and I were guest interviewers at a local high school. I signed up through the Rotary Club of Sidney, to which I belong, and knew that Nancy, with her background in PR, would be perfect at this task: we were to do "exit" interviews with grade 12 students.
