7 Month Hiatus – LIFE GETS IN THE WAY & BLOGGING PAYS THE PRICE!

OK, so my last blog was back in December when I was rambling on and on about a fallen tree and trying to explain why crayon's are never a good gift for a senior citizen. Jump forward to July, and between figuring out why puppy training in the coldest of winter days with snow up to …

Thank you Oakville ~ Some Bunny Wuvs you…

We've had some very sad times as of late, right here in our little town, which has hit not only the community, but my son's former elementary school directly.  When you hear the news, gut-wrenching is not a strong enough term. It brings you to your knees. It is during these sad times when we reflect, …

That wonderful, glorious Guardian Angel..

I want to meet him/her.  She saved my nephews life.  (I'll just go with She... 😉 ) As most of you know, my nephew Steven was involved in a very serious car accident last week, and the news shook us to the core.  The call you never want to get.  You can read my initial blog posting …

~ The Voice of Reason ~

My eldest son moved out! My thought process was that I would be fine, because, well, he was already gone for 5 years during his University days. I got used to his absence.  Then, like most do, they come back.  Nasty beer fridge, two gecko tanks and a big sack of laundry. That's the joke. When they leave for school, oh …

Thank-you, Superbowl Sunday and… #amwriting (I think)…

So we are a week in from saying goodbye to our precious dog Lucy, but things are now slowly adjusting to a 'new normal.'   She came to me in a dream, and I can't tell you how WONDERFUL it was.   I was able to give her a big hug, and it felt sooo real. Then she was gone.  Our family is taking it day by day …

A Dog with A Blog…

There are no easy words as I type this.  Tears are flowing.  Today we laid to rest our sweet dog Lucy after a short battle with Lymphoma.  We were given two weeks, and she gave us 4 months. Every day was a treasure, a gift, and we spoiled her to the best of our abilities.  No food was off limits.  …

Holy Man, I’m Bushed!

Is it just me or are we all feeling the same way?  I'm just spent!  It's now 2017. How did that happen.  We all partied like rock stars to ring in the new year, and I think somewhere in all the festivities, I signed a recording contract. Karaoke at it's finest! That being said, I think I have …

Angel Wings and funny things….Reality!

The countdown is on and I'm starting to panic.  The reality is setting in that there are only 18 more shopping days, and typically by this time, I'm done, wrapped and enjoying a stogie by the fire. As I try to compile my lists, I'm getting slightly distracted by the Victoria Secret Angels on my tele. They are all so beautiful/puffy …

Life’s Regrets ~ if you have any…

We turned back our clocks this weekend... Gaining an hour feels so great. I accomplished so much by 10am, but was ready for a nap by noon! The time change got me thinking.  Would it not be "interesting" if we could turn back the clock to another time, another day, another year. If you had a …
