Welcome to my blog!

I post new content every second week or so — usually nothing too serious; and often downright silly. I figure life is short, so we might as well laugh when we can. 🙂

I welcome your comments on each post!


The Big Drop

Guess what I did last week? If you guessed ‘skydiving’, you’re right… and oh-so-wrong. Yes, I got trussed into a tandem skydiving harness by Gord from Skydive Vancouver Island. But that’s as far as it went; although I did have a moment of panic when he finished tightening the harness and said, “So, we’ll be … Continue reading The Big Drop

It Fell From The Sky

Several months ago, before there was snow on the ground (yes, we had snow; stop laughing), I looked out the front window one morning and saw a rabbit’s foot. Clearly not a lucky one, since it had been recently detached from the rabbit. I’ve never been squeamish, but I have to admit that being confronted … Continue reading It Fell From The Sky

Ant-Watching

Last week I acquired a hobby I never wanted, and certainly don’t enjoy: Ant-watching. It wasn’t my idea. Hubby made me do it. Ants creep me out, so you can imagine how (not) thrilled I was last year when a platoon of ants infiltrated the second floor of our house. Soon the upstairs was dotted … Continue reading Ant-Watching

Exercising My Options

Exercise always seems like such a good idea. Medical professionals say it’s vital to our health; beauty magazines tell us it’s vital for our appearance; mental health experts say it boosts our mood; hell, it’s even supposed to improve our sex lives. So regular exercise is a no-brainer, right? It’ll make me feel look, look … Continue reading Exercising My Options

Sink Slime and Adulthood

The slime is back. I thought I had vanquished it in July, but no. This week I had to unclog my bathroom sink drain again. It doesn’t make sense. We lived in our last house for nearly 19 years without a clog. We lived in this house for nearly three years without a clog. Now, … Continue reading Sink Slime and Adulthood

Happy New Year

Wow, I can’t believe it’s January already! If time continues to speed up as I age, by the time I’m eighty I’ll be planting the garden in January and putting up the Christmas tree in August. Hey, now I’ve got an excuse if I ever start to lose my marbles: There’s nothing wrong with my … Continue reading Happy New Year

Happy Holidays

I feel a bit weird about writing ‘Happy Holidays’ this year. It’s been such a shitty year for so many people, and I don’t want to toss off a flippant greeting to someone whose days will be anything but happy. I don’t want to make anyone feel worse than they already do. But yet, I … Continue reading Happy Holidays

Construction Conundrums

I’ll tackle just about any household renovation, and I’ve sometimes thought that it might be a nice way to make a bit of extra income. After all, what could be more satisfying than building and fixing things? It seems like a good idea, until I actually do a project. Last week we replaced an exterior … Continue reading Construction Conundrums
