Fruitcakes and Snowflakes…and late breaking news!

Well, well, well now, hasn't it been a busy week.  AND, it's only Wednesday. First off, I was busying myself with a little Cyber Monday shopping, (which I detest), but in the end, only opted for something crazy ridiculously expensive, which may end up being returned if my PPD (post purchase dissonance) kicks in! But, …

Green Jello

So, I just spent a full weekend at our new and improved Oakville hospital.  Yup, that's right.  It most definitely wasn't how I wanted to spend my precious Friday or Saturday night!  Let's face it, we all love the weekends, and when things don't fall into place exactly as planned, it can make one a tad cranky! The whole process …

DISCOMBOBULATION…IS THAT EVEN A WORD?

Hi ya Peeps and Happy Friday the 13th...dun dun dun!  I'm not superstitious at all, but do love me a good scary movie.  Friday The 13th was truly one of the best, a close second behind Halloween.  Or wait, perhaps it was When a Stranger Calls.  Click here for one of my favorite scenes. Well, it was when …

July Musings…and in comes the August Long!

August already ~ can you believe...it!   I'm having trouble describing in a few words how my July was... draining or exasperating come to mind.  That being said, I do hope your summer has been treating you well.  Gauging from all the FB & IG posts, it appears all cottages/pools are open, the sunrise/sunsets are fab and the "docktails" are …

I’m Doing This! What was I thinking…

Hi Friends and Happy Hump Day... So, some news to share, and call me crazy, but I have decided to bite the bullet and take on the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in June, 2018.   Don't get me wrong, this is one of the best fundraising events the Big Smoke puts on, riding over 220km in two …

BLOGIVERSARY and Bloggy Tidbits…

Oh Joy.  I can finally celebrate something.  I'm also over this horrible lingering 6 week nagging flu/cough/cold.  Happy to report, I'm all better! I spent way too many days propped up with pillows and spent too much time reading and writing...and eating.  My family can also now remove the sneeze guard from the kitchen counter.  That thing was most …

Sicker than a dog…

Sorry peeps... I haven't been blogging lately, and I don't want my followers *wink* to think I've given up.  I'm here, but trying to deal with this horrid lingering cough. It started out as a few sniffles, but over the weeks, (not kidding) turned into a raging smokers hack (I don't smoke), to where my co-workers were …

Bring on the Patio’s – Oakville Style

Although I do consider myself a rather happy person most days, this weather is killing me.  Unless I'm under a blanket, lying horizontal on my couch with a cracking fire, I'm not digging it!  And please, don't even get me started on what it's doing to my hair. (*insert princess emoji)  I don't really bother 'prepping' it for work …

Writing 101 & Working Through The Fiscal…

With another Easter in the books, it's now time to focus on my last quarter.  It seems as though I run my household like a business.  I'm now in Q4 like my work family calendar,  with April being the start.  Most of April is being kind to us, with goodness coming in the form of sunshine, patios, …

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, …

Friday Facebook Reflections…

SO I'VE TAKEN THE LEAP back into "Facebook Land." Don't really know why, because I'm starting to regret it already.  I'm feeling anxious.  No word of a lie!  I feel like my whole world and personal bits are out there on display.  Silly I know.  I was a full on dedicated "Facebooker" many moons ago (well 2007 …

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 …
