Welcome to 2018! Yesterday I vacuumed the carpet, swept the floors, cleaned my kitchen, and took out the recycling. I did a little writing, and played a little Warcraft – but not too much. I drank a little wine – again, not too much. The husbeast is feeling a bit under the weather, so compassion […]
There was no Foodie Friday last week. There will be no Foodie Friday this week. Why? Because we had last week off work and between a minor renovation and Hallowe’en, our eating habits have been atrocious. That said, I have pictures to show! Our home is a constant work-in-progress. I’m sure that if you ask […]
It’s another Foodie Friday! This week saw just a little more variety at mealtime. We actually had a plan, and we stuck to it – make a menu, do one large shopping trip, and prep in advance where necessary. It actually seems to have worked.
I am in grave danger of becoming one of those people who Instagrams all her meals. It’s mainly due to the fact that a picture makes it easy to remember what you’ve had and whether it was notable in some way. As a result, I have a few pictures saved back. I’m thinking of making […]

Welcome to my home: This is what I came home to last Sunday. We had spent most of the weekend cleaning, and Robin had decided to finish the job while I was at work. He also cooked dinner (stir-fry), and we cleaned up afterwards. The kitchen is still in pretty good shape. We’re trying to […]
This is what I’ve taken to calling The Sock of Awesome (aka Awesomesocks). As you can see, I finished sock #1 and have moved on to sock #2.
I bought a moleskine. It’s not too big, and not too small. It will fit in my purse, or my carry-around-bag without being TOO small.
