On Vacation...

Saturday, July 21, 2007

We're off on holidays. I'll tell you all about it when we return near the beginning of August. Before we head out, we'll be making a detour to the computer repair shop; great timing...

Stay well, friends!

What a load of croc...

Thursday, July 19, 2007


I am ashamed to admit that I must now add myself to the growing list of croc owners. I purchased these beauties while in Toronto. I had only brought one pair of (uncomfortable) shoes with me and was looking for something inexpensive and comfortable to wear for the remainder of my brief stay. So they fit the bill, even though they are, well, you know...at least I garden and they will be useful for that purpose.
I should be doing anything other than posting a blog about crocs, as I just have two days left before we head off to....
New Hampshire and New York...it's always fun to travel to America. I'll tell you more about the trip before we go.

Step inside...

Monday, July 16, 2007

Toronto was...stinky, sweaty, and over-crowded. Like a bad bar that shares the same characteristics. So you push your way to the exit and then take a deep breath of fresh air as soon as you hit the sidewalk. That's how I felt when I returned to Nova Scotia. Fresh breath of air.
I am going to be working my proverbial a#@ off this week, so we can take off on a family vacation next week. We just decided where we are going yesterday. Wanna guess, or want me to tell you?

Eye Candy

Thursday, July 12, 2007

Nothing like some sweets after a long day of being touristy. We spent the day in Halifax, playing at the Discovery Centre and wandering along the boardwalk taking in this years' Tall Ships festival (photos on Flickr). I am off to Toronto for a bit of work now (Carbon Credits will cover my self-imposed "no fly year"). I hope to be around to see you soon!
Have fun friends!

Just Day Trippin'

Tuesday, July 10, 2007






Mr. C and I are "off" this week and taking day trips rather than going away. We will do the latter in a few weeks, but in the meantime, here are a few photos from historic Ross Farm, in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. I'll be putting more on my Flickr site.

I hope your summers are going well, friends!

Seven More

Monday, July 02, 2007

Chloe tagged me to do this meme. I answered one in this post. But now I have seven more things to report that you do not know about me. These kinds of tags are getting more challenging. I've been doing this blog for almost two years now. Weekly at the very least. I mean, you people practically live in my head. But I'll do my best...

2. I hate to read or follow instructions. The minute someone begins a sentence with the words And this is how you do it....I hear Wa wa wa Waaa Wa WWaa (think the teacher in Charlie Brown) Seriously. I hate to listen to explanations. And I equally hate to read instructions. If I buy something that comes with instructions, the first thing I do is toss the instructions aside. This explains why I am not following the "official" instructions for this tag. I started to read them , but found my mind wandering. No rules.
3. I have never dyed my hair. I have virgin hair. Never been touched. And now that there are reports that some hair dyes are linked to carcinogens and other harmful products, I have a bit of an ego about it. Ah ha. See? There are reasons.
4. My sister-in-law has told my brother that if I (or my mother or sister) ever sets foot on their property, she will call the police. She will issue a restraining order. Long story on this one. Some of you know some of the context from last fall.
5. My second toe is longer than my big toe. Just by a bit. But enough to be annoying.
6. I was the youngest person to ever hold the position I hold at the place I am employed (at the time I was hired).
7. I get easily annoyed by people. People in general. I have been known to utter "I hate people" under my breath to Mr. C when we are in a particularly annoying public situation. This happens frequently. Today, it was the ice cream shop queue. The woman behind me was singing camp songs with her daughter. Buffalo girls won't you come out tonight, come out tonight...Loudly. I mean, who sings this? And now the stupid song is ingrained in my head and won't leave. My son was amused. I was not. My headache and PMS was getting in the way and I imagined myself turning around and screaming shut up !
8. I am not a perfectionist in general, but there are things that I am a little obsessive about. Folding laundry, for example. Clothing needs to be folded in a very precise way. I am very picky about it. Even towels. Long way folded first, then in half again, and smooth with the hand. Weird, huh?
So there you have it; more about me than anyone ever needed to know. Oh, and one more bonus thing: I feel badly when I don't have the chance to come and comment on your blogs. I will soon! But it's summer vacation now and I am officially holding down two full-time jobs!
Stay well, friends.

Happy Canada Day

Sunday, July 01, 2007




How we acquired so much Canada Day kitsch, I will never know. Although I prefer to think of myself as a citizen of Earth first and foremost, Canada really is a great country, and worthy of a birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Canada.
You're only just a toddler among many nations.
