Life is Crazy

Isn’t it all crazy? What you ask? Life… Life is crazy… the world is crazy… everything is crazy!! I know it’s always been this way but I can usually find something to hang onto that isn’t crazy. But crazy is everywhere! It is invading every layer of my life! Yes, I know I’m ranting on […]

Pilates Have Nothing On Ceiling Fans!

The kitchen project continues, and yes, I am aware that it started in November. It took a week after our return for Honey to get out of ‘holiday mode’, and back into ‘home reno’ mode again. The countertop has been templated and arrives in 15 days (professional installation). To Honey’s relief her new cupboards passed […]

Holiday or Vacation

I have come to the conclusion that a month on the beach in the Dominican Republic is not enough, especially when you return to sub-zero temperatures and more snow than when you left. It’s been a hard week. Honey and I returned home at 3 am on Tuesday and were both back to work on […]

Winter Project

It was a Tuesday if I recall correctly when it all began. That may not be quite accurate since the conversation had been going on for a couple of months and had started to pick up steam recently, and preparational materials had been arriving in the house over the last few weeks.

A Parent's Nightmare

I hate hospitals. Sorry Dee Dee, it’s nothing personal. I don’t like the ambiance, the antiseptic smell, the way everyone talks like they are in a library. With the exception of the maternity ward where there is screaming and the crying of little voices announcing their arrival into this world, the rest of the hospital […]

Have you ever noticed that the hotter it gets the more people slow down and the colder it gets the more they speed up? It doesn’t make much sense but it seems to be what happens. Cold seems to invigorate while heat makes you lethargic. Kind of odd isn’t it? I’m sure that there is […]

To My Surprise

Have you ever heard a knock on the door and when you open it, to your surprise, there stands a person you least expect? An old friend? A family member? A representative of ‘The Church of the Latter-Day Saint’? Okay skip that last one, that happens quite a lot around here so I’m never that […]

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party.”   This is a phrase that my mother would use when she practiced her version of 1950’s keyboarding. They called it typing back then, and my mom’s fingers flew over the keys as she repeated this sentence on our […]

News From The Cracks

Last week I read these news headlines… ‘Trump says Canadians are smuggling shoes’ ‘Britain and Europe facing beer shortage during world cup’ ‘Canada passes final reading of cannabis law‘   I know there are more important headlines that have a more of a significant impact on mankind, but if you’re looking for those kind of […]
