It wasn’t the perfect birthday for my mother(no bingo, no siblings) but all her children were there and all of us were on our best (a far cry from perfect) behaviour.  Of course there were gifts and cake.  There were … Continue reading

The Door to the Pumpkin Patch

Commuting is like watching a TV show you’ve seen before. Knowing what’s coming means you let parts of it wash over you.  Essentially you ignore swaths and remark on the highlights.  Things are more conspicuous by their absence than by … Continue reading

Happy Canada Day

I would just like to wish Canadians, and any Canadian friendly people out there, a Happy Canada Day.  We’re 151 years young.  We have a lot to be proud of (and a few things to atone for).  Our year begins … Continue reading

Blogger Award

I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the author of HeideBlog. She confessed that she sometimes turns these things down because they have a chain letter quality about them.  I hadn’t quite thought of it that way, … Continue reading

A Little Mischief

According to my mother, I was not a bad child. As far as my teachers were concerned, I had a stubborn streak, was a little precocious, was rather defiant, and had a temper.  I guess mothers can see beyond all … Continue reading

Opting to Celebrate
