ABOUT THIS SITE...This is one of my four blogs:wonderful husband and two great 'kids' who are now young adults, and we live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada - in the great city of Chilliwack, to be exact (one hour from Vancouver). Feathering the Empty Nest is my 'baby' that I have been nurturing and building or four years - ever since taking medical retirement from my government job because of disability issues. As a result, general health and well being, and losing weight are a concern for me and are therefore topics covered here. I also discuss marriage, raising a family (especially military families like ours) including parenting teens,adult children (or, if you prefer - parenting young adults living at home) as well as parenting children of all ages. Of course, I can't forget our lovable, furry family members. Pet ownership is wonderful - especially once our kids have moved out on their own, so there is discussion about responsible pet ownership and care.Lifestyle changes that come with raising a family, retirement, and health issues, in addition to how these affect other aspects of our lives such as housekeeping, cooking and shopping matter a great deal. Being the lazy housekeeper and indifferent cook that I am, learning how to save money while still eating well has meant finding easy cooking recipes, experimenting with online grocery shopping and sharingÂ invaluable household hints and tips.Our home remains our castle, whether our kids live here or elsewhere and home ownership and renovations, diy home projects and repair tips and hints play a large role. Weave all of this together with humorous stories of children, pets, family life, marriage and any other silly little thing I can think of, and you have 'Feathering the Empty Nest.'
