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!
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
My grandmother (Dad’s mother) was a poised and gracious woman. I never heard her raise her voice; never saw her make any movement that was rushed or awkward. She was unfailingly kind and polite, with a gentle sense of humour. When she finally had to enter a care home after a devastating stroke, the staff … Continue reading Silver Tea and Senior Moments
“I live in a house with no windows or doors. If I want to leave, I have to break through a wall. What am I?” When I sat down to write the draft for this post, my mind was blank. Back in the days when I actually had human contact, I didn’t have much trouble … Continue reading Riddles And Chicken Earlobes
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
