Thinking back to almost a year ago when I got to party with some billionaires for a few days.
Walk through the park today. It was snowing pink cherry blossoms. #familytime
First day back teaching my Ardvreck drummers and first time teaching through Google Classroom. It went quite well and It was great to see my students again. I’m very grateful my school is so on top of teaching virtually like this. #drum #drummers #drumclass
Pointless Sisters - Halifax Police Pipe Band annual mini-band knockout fundraiser circa 1990. If I could jump in the delorean and go back in time for a visit this would be one of those moments. #pipeband #drummer #bagpipes #goodtimes
Mother Nature reminded me this morning how change is inevitable, but doesn’t have to be feared. If we change the way we look at it, well, it can actually be quite beautiful. Some of my favourite things about where we live are the views. If you blink the mountains change colours from what they were five seconds ago. It’s kind of a thing in our house that when we have an incredible, red sunset whoever notices it first tells the rest of us and we all then go around the different rooms in the house to admire it from all angles and over the different sets of mountains. Just like we change the screensaver on our computer or phone Mother Nature changes the screensaver that is our view for us. I just think that is really neat. What if we chose to see all the changes that we are needing to make in our lives as beautiful as ever-changing morning mountain views? Instead of thinking we ‘have’ to learn new ways of living and working we ‘get’ to do all these things in these incredible times. As Wayne Dyer used to say ‘When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.’ #morningthoughts #gratitude #grateful #morningview #morningvibes #changethewayyoulookatthings #waynedyer #mountains #changeisbeautiful #perspective #mothernature #scenery #scottisscenery #roomwithaview #inspiration
Good morning . #capebreton #scotland #morning
Happy #happyhour from our deck to yours
I love getting up early in the mornings to read self improvement books and enjoy multiple cups of coffee. That ‘me’ time always sets me up for a great day. The book I’m currently reading is #PowerManifesting by my new friend, @nkbreau and I’m loving it. Definitely recommend to my #highvibe friends.
Today I choose gratitude over fear. We have so much to be thankful for and today, for me, it’s our view. I still pinch myself that I can see a castle from our house. The light tends to strike Drummond Castle best in the early morning and by later in the day it practically disappears with the change of light. Look around - what view can you be grateful for today? The scenery? Your partner or family? Your pet? Your home? Let’s start a #rampageofappreciation #gratitude #grateful #castle
Happy #tartanday. My aunt Bev sent me this photo today. This was the first band I ever played in, the Sprigs Of Heather Pipe Band, from North Sydney. I think my mum made every single piece of my uniform here. My sister, Cheryl, was Pipe Major, my cousin, Bonnie, was Pipe Sergeant, my cousin, Terri, was also a snare drummer with me. Some of the best times of my life, and the most ‘character building’ experiences, were with these girls. Just looking at this picture brings back a flood of wonderful memories. #nationaltartanday #pipeband #drum #drummer #snaredrummer #bagpipes #capebreton #capebretonisland

Cameron and Mark joined pipers all around the world to play Scotland The Brave to thank all the NHS, key workers, emergency services and armed forces who are all out on the front lines keeping us safe. #PIpeUpForKeyWorkers #NHSTheBrave
Took advantage of our daily hour allowance to get outside in the fresh air. We all definitely needed it. Even the dog we passed was practicing social distancing by carrying around a big six foot stick.
Mark has been baking away again. Today he made cherry scones and few plain ones for me to have with our chilli tonight. He doesn’t get the ‘having a tea biscuit with chilli’ thing. #markbakes #scones #cherryscones #teabiscuits
