Ode to Annabel; Praise for Judy’s Kitchen

Cheers! To LOL member, Judy, for hosting our meeting to discuss, Annabel If you've read my inaugural column in the newly launched magazine, Okanagan Woman, (http://www.okanaganwoman.com/), you'll know I've belonged to a couple of different book clubs over the years but Wednesday evening's LOL meeting ranks...

Of Love & Loss

Welcome, Wednesday. It's a big day for the LOL. Tonight is our monthly meeting, when we will be discussing our latest novel, Annabel. New Year's resolutions to curtail food and drink may be thwarted as the appies roll out and the wine doth pour but...

Precious Times at the Peaks

Happy New Year and welcome back to the Ladies on Literature blog. I enjoyed a lovely holiday with family, followed by a week of sun-kissed skies and snow-covered mountains @ Sun Peaks Ski Resort. The alpine offered up powder, the Nordic trails were well-groomed, and...

The Ladies of Christmas

It's Free-For-All-Friday but moreover it's two days until Christmas! Are you ready? I'm not. But then, if you've read my blog or if you know me, you'll know I'm never ready for much. I am a procrastinator and while I desperately try to be on...

A Little Snow in the City

Sadly, Sunday's fresh dusting of snow is slowly disappearing. The surrounding mountains, so beautifully decorated in a cloak of lacy white yesterday morning, appear to be shrugging their shawl. With my brother and sister-in-law and their three young boys arriving soon for Christmas, we in...

Shopping On-line, on Free-For-All-Friday

I love the idea of Free-For-All-Friday! Of course we'll talk literature, but we'll talk a lot of other stuff if we feel like it. In keeping with Wednesday's post about domesticity and sensible vs high-heeled shoes, I'm still struggling with the juggling of Christmas decor calling...
