Lhom, the family barista, always makes me his delicious coffee in the morning.

Walking for an hour a day is a habit I acquired during the pandemic and one I’m trying to maintain.

I also do muscle-strengthening exercises because I think that is important. So, I decided to do them three times a week. One day for the arms, one for the legs and one for the abs. Julie Baird’s exercises are excellent for my back, even though I am not one of her target clients! Summer weather has invaded Quebec and we’ve started our canoeing season.

Here is a photo of the lake.

I published one in The Writing Cooperative. Writing in English on allows me to challenge myself by doing an intellectual exercise that I find difficult!

New for June 2023 is my newsletter on Substack. I invite you to subscribe.

My blog is now bilingual. From time to time, you will see an article in English.

Yves Simard, the host of the show Ici et ailleurs on the radio station CKIA invited me. We talked about my travels in New England with Brittany Brexit. Here is the link. 

I am still working on my novel.

And I just updated my “now” page. Ah! Ah!
