Netflix is our Valentine

Today was Valentine’s Day celebrations at my daughters school. She dressed in white and red… excuse me, pink, because red is not her colour, and she skipped through the school with her bag, excited to give valentines to her classmates. After her day was done she burst through the door, dumped her valentines mail bag…

Netflix is Ringin’ in 2016 with Something AWESOME!

Now that the holidays are over and we are all getting back to “reality” I feel like we need something to help us get through the next couple of months. No, not copious amounts of alcohol, although that will help and you can send bottles to my house directly, thank you. But I was thinking…

After March Break Booze

Saturday we picked up our girl. She told us all about her adventures with Nannie and Grampy, treats, and about how much fun she had. She went on about Frozen on ice and her trip to the petting zoo. There was walks and crafts and “dinner before it got dark out.” But she was ready to…

Through the Lollipop Forest

I ate myself into ENORMOUS over Christmas. I think I got to know every chocolate bar intimately and every treat within a 10 mile radius went in my face. The stores stopped selling me Pot of Gold. There is a fine line between casually eating a treat with girlfriends while you all giggle over the…

The Metal Bed Frames that Hold My Sanity

I stared at her laying beside me, her tiny body still so new and the sounds she was making foreign to me. I couldn’t believe I had made her. The dimly lit room gave her eyes a rest and Brian time to sleep while she and I bonded. Her little fingers laying in mine, her face perfect,…

There’s Beauty Here

Copper, amber, deep reds, and oranges all mixed in to perfectly compliment each other. It’s like winters gift. “Sorry, you’re going to freeze your ass off in a couple of months. Here, I’ll make the landscape into a work of art for you, one that you’ll try to capture in pictures and paintings but won’t…

Giving Credit…

There was a time when I was really excited to have a credit card. The bank kept giving me more and more money so I kept taking it. Why not? I was 20 years old, didn’t own a house, and had very few responsibilities. So when they offered me a line of credit to go…

Shart on the Dance Floor

It’s 2am. I have to get up early because tomorrow morning, bright and early I am meeting my bridesmaids and decorating the hall for my Jack and Jill. All the American’s say what? That’s a huge party that we Canadian’s throw in honour of the Bride and Groom to help them raise money and pay…

The Bear Went Over the Mountain

We are huge readers in this house. Children’s books, flyers, the back of the ketchup bottle. We soak it in. So when this arrived in the mail… We immediately cracked it open and started reading. Wait. Singing! Iza Trapani, the author of The Bear Went Over The Mountain, was born in Poland and moved to…
