August

August is my favourite month. The sun is still warm, the gardens provide a bounty of food and beauty and the bugs have subsided! This summer has been a bit of a dream for me in a positive way. I have spent the past 12 years working part-time on a local flower farm...

Mornings

Mornings are my favourite part of the day. The light, the peace, the first sip of coffee, a sharpened pencil for sudoku or a to-do list. That combination makes for the best start to any day. I’ve recently modified my morning routine to include both a quiet meditation...

A little extra

I'm a firm believer in the idea that one must always have something to look forward to. It can be big or small, a camping trip or a coffee, but it is so important to have something to keep you looking up and out. It is incredibly motivating to have something to light...

Online Schooling…Take Two

I’m now officially finished grade 11, which is weird because it still feels somewhat like March. But I’ve also now “started” grade twelve, taking an online course for the month of July. It’s Challenge and Change in Society (in French) and so far it’s been very...

Toad

 I am an animal lover. I would have an animal sanctuary in my backyard if I could afford it. The thought of any creature suffering is more than I can handle so I constantly go out of my way to save things. I have a yoghurt container in the mudroom for releasing...

The things I love about summer!

After a long cold winter, I very much look forward to the warmer seasons. Spring is my favourite of the seasons, I appreciate and need the time to transition from being mostly indoors to the long lazy days of summer. I often think how as Canadians we are subjected to...

Desolate Eagle

Desolate Eagle She picks away at the carcass of the country that once inspired and aspired to the dream, the truth Though never the reality the idea was at hand And the striving was the way that kept the nation streaming Only in “audacity of hope” can the remaining...

Swimming

I love swimming. I mean I REALLY LOVE swimming. So much so that last year I joined the Perth Stingrays Masters program. I was very intimidated to start and was so nervous my first practice, I almost didn't go. Well thank goodness I did. Swimming provides me with a...

Transitions

So my youngest child turned 18 on the weekend. I knew it was coming and I'd been thinking a lot about transitions leading up to this momentous date. She was moving from a child to an adult; I was moving from a mother to....what, exactly? Since motherhood has been one...

Reflections

The world is full of contradictions. Right now life feels as though it's simultaneously on pause and throttling forward at an alarming speed. It can be overwhelming. In times of isolation, whether you're isolating at home or simply limiting your time out and about,...

Bracelets & Podcasts

During the first two weeks off of school, I didn’t really have a schedule. I slept in, had breakfast (which was really lunch), and switched between tasks, not really interested in anything. Eventually I realized I’d need to do something different in order to feel more...

Gardening

Gardening. Yes surprise surprise, gardening. I've always had a garden to poke around in with my morning coffee. This time of year, I keep a kettle outside & prepare a tray with the bodum, cream and a cup so I can dash outside quickly and make my coffee in the...
