Introduction for Vickiw

I am a Canadian semi- retired college professor. My areas of study are early childhood education, and Adult Education. I love reading, writing, gardening and cooking, but I also have many other interests! Two years ago I moved to a little seaside village in British Columbia, and it took a while to settle in, after leaving so many friends, but now I love it here. This area is called the sunshine coast, and there's a reason for that, as I have discovered! Even now, when winter has attacked all provinces in Canada, it is mild and snow-free here. I like to drink ginger and chamomile teas, also have two coffees per day, but I only drink the decaffeinated kind. Other than that, water is good enough for me.

Hi Vicki.
I see you are dipping a toe in the water here like many of us after the bubblews debacle. Welcome

Hi, Vicki Vickiw I'm gla to meet you! Your seaside residence must be ideally your niche and place of respite in your retirement. We live in the laid-back country home. So far, it's very pleasant browsing here at Persona Paper. I feel the acceptance and unhurried pace. Or is it just mee? Good day to you. emoticon :smile:

Thanks AsADrivenLeaf! I do feel very happy here so far! Lots to keep up with though, and I'm not sure I can do it!

Thanks, found it. Getting there!

Got it! Getting to be an old hand here now. Just wish I could spend more time here.

We have been to Canada several times, and love it. Is the Sunshine Coast the West Coast?

Vickiw wrote on January 10, 2015, 3:54 PM

It is a part of the west coast. It's accessible by ferry or air , and is a peninsula. Only a small strip of land prevents it from being an island.

G'day Vicki the Sunshine Coast sounds great ! This site is much more user friendly than the 'B' site and I feel that we will all have a great time on Persona Paper :)

Vickiw wrote on January 11, 2015, 12:39 AM

Thank you for your quick response, even though you're so far away! Looking forward to hearing more from you, and glad you think it's going to be a great experience!

Hi. My name is Mara and I'm from Romania. I like ginger tea too and I'm glad to meet you.

Vickiw wrote on January 11, 2015, 11:22 AM

Thank you Mara! Happy to meet you too! And look at that - we already share one thing in common! Hope you have happy times here!

Hallo, I also love drinking ginger. Sometimes I combine it with curcuma. I think I read somewhere that when used together they enhance their effects.

Vickiw wrote on January 11, 2015, 4:29 PM

Yes, I plan to do that too! Seems like a good idea. I ve found a recipe that I'd like to try.

From one newbie to another--welcome to Persona Paper! Your seaside village sounds lovely. I live in a rural area along the Gulf of Mexico here in the Sunshine State of Florida. It is lovely, but yes, taking some getting used to after living in Ohio for many years.
