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 […]

Remember that whole pretending to be grown up thing I was talking about?  We’re making a pretty concerted effort to be more aware of what’s going on, and it’s really paying off. This is what it looks like around here tonight.  We’re finding that with both of us working on our respective writing, we can […]

It’s that time of year. We braved the mall yesterday, and did quite a bit of Christmas shopping. The adults aren’t quite so difficult to shop for once you start tweaking onto them.  It’s the kids. You’d think that the kids would be easy to shop for…when I was their age, I wanted half the […]

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 was almost a weekend worthy of being buried in the bottom of a pit and being forgotten.  There’s just something about trying to find a venue with a supposed entrance on an unlit back road in the middle of the night, or being trapped in a car while trying to find an exit from […]

I inadvertantly wore purple today. I honestly hadn’t remembered that today was earmarked to wear purple in order to raise anti-gay bullying awareness.  All I know is that I went looking for a snuggly shirt to wear this morning, saw the light purple hoodie on the floor and said “Score!  I win!”  It was only […]

Had to get the car registered today (nothing like waiting til the last moment), so I also took the opportunity to get some other errands done.  By the time I came home I had a bunch of clothes that I picked up on sale, cat foods of various flavours and densities (yes, densities), baking ingredients […]
