#Eatthecake #Takethetrip

#Eatthecake — even if it’s a brownie cooked in a pot. Hm tasty. 


#Takethetrip — even if it’s cloudy still relish the opportunity to venture from your everyday. 


#findyourbalance — #findabalance or #findyourbalance or #balance — whatever hashtag you use find what works in your life. It’s not all work and it’s not all play.

Something from Nothing 

There is a wonderful children’s book called Something from Nothing. It’s by one of my favourite Canadian authors of that genre, Phoebe Gilman. I was reminded of this book recently when I decided to create something from nothing. Once the Continue reading

#fencepostfriday

Yes I post to Intragram too often, yes I spend a lot of time connecting in social media. While doing just those things today I discovered a new hashtag that I love!

It’s a time sensitive one though as like a throw back Thursday you can only publish it one day a week. In all reality I’m quite sure I can only do one blog post about it as I don’t have that many photos of them.

That said I have a few that are my favourites. 





AND that’s why I keep thousands (yes thousands) of photos on my phone. So I can blog all favourites from one spot. But alas I couldn’t find my favourite two nor the newest one I would like to have shared. So I guess you’ll have to check back next Friday.

Fall Friday

Preempted Post 

Tonight’s post about life in the raspberry patch was preempted by the storm that blew in. After a day with a crazy hot temperature it wasn’t a big surprise. The bonus was that this one actually hit us and we got some RAIN! 








  A small part of the evening was spent opening windows to allow the breeze in. Storm side ones were not quite closed quickly enough and so those window sills were then wiped down. The storm then swung around and hit us from the other side while we weren’t watching which now means that 90% of the window sills in the house are clean. Bonus areas cleaned included the floors under the radiators. On the down side there are no windows open because it is raining and it’s like mega hot in our house. Raspberry lemonade to the rescue! 


Tomorrow evening perhaps you will read the musings of a raspberry picker. I hope you enjoy all the pictures.
