July 1, 2017 - Happy 150th Birthday Canada, I am so grateful to call you home. Today, for Canada Day, for Canada's 150th birthday, we decided to celebrate by trying something new. Paddleboarding….because it is hot and I'd rather fall into the cold ocean on a hot day than a cold one. And I was [...]
December 22, 2016 - Today was a good day. Kirk and I both left work an hour early to get to the bank to make a mortgage payment. A very special mortgage payment. Our last mortgage payment. Completely debt free again! How good does that feel? Freaking awesome!
October 16, 2016 - When I came downstairs this morning, I sat down and was sipping my coffee when I felt like I was being watched. When I turned my head there were three Stellar's jays sitting on the planter, the chair, and the table just on the other side of the glass. All three [...]

September 10, 2015 - A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of my (I think) totally cool doorknob. This is my (I think) equally cool doorbell that is mounted on the same door (obviously, given the crazy colour), just above said cool doorknob. Needless to say, I think that I have the coolest [...]
June 15, 2014 - I can't wait until the renovation is over and I can wash salad greens in a kitchen sink rather than in the bathroom. What a pain! But we are getting there. The granite is in, though I'm unhappy with the cutouts for the posts. It turns out that the slab we [...]
