Turns out blogging, beer, baking and BBQ don’t go hand in hand. Continue reading
Wow! I actually am unsure of how to encapsulate our Canada Day 150 spent on Parliament Hill. There are so many moments and thoughts to share. Settle in as this is going to be a long read! Continue reading
Once upon a time I tried to kill my husband. Now this is a true story but perhaps not in the context that you’re thinking. To be fair to me I warned him but he didn’t listen. Now the shoe might be on the other foot. Continue reading
Today I met up with a fellow blogger and it was wonderful. Now I actually know her in real life but feel a closer connection because of our shared blog readings. At this stage in her career I would be a distant memory, pleasant but faded. She would be one of a string of younger colleagues I help mentor along the way.

That’s why for as long as Continue reading
I hate socks. That’s both the long and the short of this. Continue reading
It started out like an ordinary day. It ended like an ordinary day but in between something strange happened that I wasn’t even aware of.
It is the “stuff” that Continue reading
I believe that the carry over effect of the daily activities from the advent calendar have made for a much more enjoyable holiday season. I still ended up Continue reading
