As I already told Laura, I am having an all-choked-up sort of day and these 2 fellows patiently waiting their master inside the grocery store really captured my mood. The lighter coloured dog has a funny sort of lumpy head that at first I thought was snow piling up. It’s -6C here, pretty chilly. They [...]

In an effort to be healthier, I’ve switched up my normal diet. Of course, I’ve become addicted to this meal and eat it daily. Well, as far as I can tell, there’s nothing bad in it. It’s a baked sweet potato with a mixed green salad dumped on top, with a lemon juice, olive oil, [...]
Vagoo. It just sounds funny. And it’s a pretty darn funny thing to spray paint on a building. This is the building formerly known as The Big Bop, corner of Queen St W and Bathurst.
When I worked at Value Village my parents were dismayed to find out that the store does not wash anything before it’s put out on the floor for sale. “How come it all smells the same, then?” Asked my dad.

And on the table. These arrived this morning from my valentine. Nothing like cut flowers!
I went shopping today because I needed a new self-healing cutting mat to slice up fabric for a new quilt I am working on. I wound up buying more stuff than expected-a set of sheets for our bed for example-but I also came home with three cutting mats instead of one. Oops. Whoever was stocking [...]
As it goes every year, I made my way back to Windsor on Superbowl weekend. It’s a good way to reconnect with my Windsor girls, I love them all so much and miss them like crazy during the rest of the year. The weekend was spent largely getting to know Ruby who’s 15 months old [...]
