Early last autumn I commenced making something that really had no major timeline (in the foreseeable future at that time) but had been a concept in my head for about 3 years.
I’d work a way a bit and then set it aside. Then one day it all went to hell in a Continue reading “Just under the wire”
A constant in my career have been the jokes about a weekend at Bernie’s and how that ends up. I can honestly say I never saw the movie. The release date means I had a 2 year old and was pregnant with my second. Movies weren’t high on my priority list I guess. Here’s if you’ve forgotten is a (or like me never saw it) clip from weekend at Bernie’s.
Now my house guest this weekend did haul something around Continue reading “Weekend at Bernie’s”
Like seriously how hard can it be to find a simple thing on the internet? I feel like I spent an hours worth of time searching for just the right site to no avail. I mean it seems simple; Continue reading “Old Fashioned Way”
I had a pot luck party last night but there was a twist. Along with the usual food item each attendee also brought along something else. The concept was that it would sort of a be like a hostess gift but then it ended up more like the crazy Christmas gift stealing. The friend who didn’t bring a gift went home with 2 but it will all even out in the long term.

I’m still trying to wrap my head around the flipping obsolete part for my SUV so when I was offered an evening full of a distraction I jumped at it.
Now this distraction also means that not much on the “to do” list got done there was a particular plus to the time spent. The parcel arrived as I departed the dungeon and instantly brought a smile to my face. Continue reading “Priceless”
Very few of my activities today were pre planned and on the to do list; least of all hitching a ride with a stranger.
Last year about this time, on CBC radio, I listened to an interesting interview. It was a recently retired woman, I believe a teacher, who felt she needed to challenge herself for the next year. A natural introvert she worried about becoming too self-contained so she started a blog called A year of strangers and in it she writes about random encounters she makes. I had expected daily posts but it’s been a bit more hit and miss. Some of them are poignant, some unsettling and the odd one is laugh out loud funny. Continue reading “Not on the list”
4 hugs and 10 minutes of hurried conversation later my friend and I Continue reading “A 4 hug swerve”
So here’s the thing. What do you do when you blow a commitment? Try and pick up the pieces or just like walk away? I had thought tonight was the night to catch up but it’s not. Other stuff called – time sensitive things like Continue reading “Here’s the Thing”
It’s that time of year where I need to do some review for accountability sake. If I was following the school calendar this would be my final report card but really it’s like a Continue reading “Report Card 2”
I say to my other half if I could I would paint and he had a little wry smile. Not doubt why Continue reading “If I Could”
