Tell Me Something I Don’t Know About You

Tell me something I don’t know about you. A question I ask Hubs all the time. Usually at intimate moments. A quiet dinner just the two of us. After supper, on the couch, when the kids are in bed. When we’re in bed…my head on his shoulder, my fingers playing with the hair on his Read More

Sorry...Not Today

Sorry…Not Today

No, I’m sorry. I can’t. The children are home. I *actually* could get a sitter and join you for dinner or shopping or some other outing – but I’ve only got a limited amount of time. See – you know that I’m one of “those” parents. I’m divorced. Even eight years after the fact, my Read More

The Eyes Have It! - #NaBloPoMo

The Eyes Have It!

What is the first thing that you do every single day (I mean after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin? Every morning, first thing when I get up, I turn to my bedside table and grab my glasses.  I’ve been wearing glasses since I was two years old. Read More

November 2 - #NaBloPoMo 1

If You Remember These…You Might Be Old

What was the one toy that a friend had that you wished you had when you were little? I’m breaking this out again just before Christmas because the old is new again! I can’t believe all the “old” toys that are coming back. I am (of course) a child of the eighties, and these were Read More

My Destination is No Longer Set by the Way the Wind Blows 1

My Destination is No Longer Set by the Way the Wind Blows

I was struck today by a thought.  We’re still renovating (painting) the new condo. Hubs and I have been working fairly effectively together. I’m doing the middle of the walls and he’s doing the detail work. We turned on some music, poured out the paint, and just got it done. The way we work in Read More

When Does a Bully Become a Lost Cause?

When Does a Bully Become a Lost Cause?

There is a child at Puck’s school who is hurting. And I don’t know what to do about it. In part because this child has been bullying my child. Puck started a new school for grade seven. He’s not just settling in well—he’s thriving. He’s happy to go to school. He’s excited about his class Read More

#NaBloPoMo Great European Galleries and Museums

Must See European Museums

I was going to write today about the amazing European museums and galleries I’ve been fortunate enough to visit, but I realized that (a) I’ve already written about my experiences at the Zuiderzeemuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum; and (b) the only other gallery I’ve been fortunate enough to visit for an extended period Read More

NaBloPoMo Baby Book for the Information Age

A Baby Book for the Information Age

You guys…today, for the very first time, my son texted me…(wait for it)…in MEME. He’s texted me before, but this was the first time he ever used memes to get his point across. I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder. The memes were totally relevant and absolutely hilarious. I spent a few minutes laughing my ass Read More

A Romantic Trip to Québec City

A Romantic Trip to Québec City

In November, 2015, Hubs and I took a trip to Québec City, Canada. We’d spent a weekend down there five years before—our first weekend away together. Our second trip, this November, was to celebrate five years together. Québec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Québec. The town has a distinctly European feel—more Read More

#NaBloPoMo: Canadian Galleries and Museums

Canadian Galleries and Museums

Today I’m continuing my series on the finest galleries in the world, and bringing you with me to check out my favorite Canadian galleries and museums.  Most of my Canadian experience is limited to the provinces of British Columbia (because my sister is there), Ontario and Québec (as you know, we’ve been summering in Québec). I can’t recall Read More
