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. 🙂

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.

Last week we replaced an exterior … Continue reading Construction Conundrums

I’m still incredibly grateful to be living where I do and doing what I love. Despite all the crap going on … Continue reading Just A Little Comfort

Thanksgiving

This past weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada, and I’m feeling grateful for just about everything. Monday morning left me breathless with sheer wonder. After a few days of rain, the sky had cleared overnight and the temperature dropped to about 4°C. The rooftops sparkled with the kind of frost that is beautiful without doing any … Continue reading Thanksgiving

Going Buggy

Remember the old figure of speech, ‘put a bug in your ear’?  It means ‘give you a hint’.  So, the other day I was out in the garden and a bug flew up my nose.  I’m not sure how to interpret that. What made the whole episode disturbing (other than, hello, a bug up my … Continue reading Going Buggy
