What I’m working on right now
I have a full-time, demanding but very rewarding job. I work for Nav Canada as a Flight Service Specialist.
We now have 10 alpacas, including little Rupert, last year’s cria. He’s growing well, and I love going nose-to-nose with him! He’s so sweet. We now have 3 females and 7 males, with one more on the way.
I’m always writing — adding to the wisdom in the series of Tiny Books on Big Ideas, or blogging. I have 4 websites!
Adventures With Teresa (my original and main blog)
Flow North Paddling (website for York Boat Captain)
Love Your Skeletons (website for the book of the same name)
Marketing and Selling Books
I’m marketing all my self-published works, which you can find out more about here, or go visit my store here. My latest book is Forging Sisterhood in the Frozen North, and it’s all about the Baffin 2019 Expedition. I’m currently working on creating a hardcover edition as well as a large print version of the book. View Photo Gallery
I love to sing, and I am one of the organizers of my local Threshold Choir, preparing to sing for people who are nearing the threshold of life & death. We create beautiful harmonies in simple songs which bring peace and comfort to those we sing for.
I have taken up spinning as a hobby, since we raise alpacas and I have a continuous supply of fibre! They can grow it faster than I can spin it. I am really enjoying learning to spin and I’m just practicing and gradually getting better. I am now selling fleeces because I have so many!
I am doing what I can to simply my life, not take on so many projects and keep my commitments to others to a minimum. I was pretty frazzled last winter and I want to avoid that in the future! I am also decluttering whenever I can.
