Dreams – Heidi

Sometimes dreams really do come true. I am writing this post from my new desk as I settle into my recent transition becoming the children...

Farewell

I'm not entirely sure how to begin this blog post. I wanted to reflect on change or transitions or growth - it feels like this year has...

Changing Seasons

I write this on the official last day of summer. What a summer it has been. Tons of uncertainty amid glorious weather and time with...

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...

My Love of Paper Crafts

I have always loved paper. As a young girl my sister and I spent hours with colouring book pages, crayons and pencils. I loved playing with colours and challenged myself to experiment with them in new ways. As I grew older, I went off to college and then started...

Knitting

Well what do you know, it’s May! I am surprised to find that Spring has certainly arrived. While I love the rain and the snow and the weather, it always seems like a miracle when the sun starts to share its warmth again. It is such a relief to take my knitting outside...

Bread

Well I don't know about you but, I have certainly found peace and comfort in baking. I have made cookies, birthday cake, banana bread and pie. The staple that is giving me the most delight is BREAD. Yummy, homemade out-of-the-oven slightly crisp, delicious bread. I...

Exploring

Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone else but I actually LOVE being at home! An introvert at heart, I feel most comfortable when I'm home and the enforced isolation is providing me with a bit more time to explore a few things I've been meaning to get to. With a little advice...
