Happy New Year!!

Monday, December 31, 2007

I had a video to share with you but my computer is feeling greedy today.
So having been spared that, I will wish you all a most wonderful 2008 friends.
Here's to us all!

Title-less

Friday, December 28, 2007

Sometimes I wonder why I keep a blog anymore. I have no theme, no major issue that I consistently rant about, like I did in the early days of the blog. I don't feel that I can completely openly write here because God knows who will stumble across this thing. And so I couch my posts in vagaries and idle photos and banter, hoping that by saving my daily or weekly thoughts I will someday look back and be glad that I'd done this for myself if for no one else.

No, I'm not seeking positive feedback or compliments. I am just wondering, that's all, because when it comes down to the things that are really REALLY on my mind, the things that I feel (for whatever reason) that I can't post here, then I start to wonder why I keep this blog at all.

So, now that I have that off my mind, what's everyone having for dinner tonight?!

Merry Christmas!

And a happy 2008. This will be our best year yet. I feel it (or am working hard on convincing myself, but let's go with the former).
xoxo

Are you being served?

Last weekend we went to dinner at a home of self-professed anarchists. What does this mean, exactly? Well, among other things, it meant that their six year old was allowed to scribble on the walls (aka "cute" to an anarchist) and letting the twin weasels (aka ferrets) shit all over the floor. My life has no room for anarchy, thank you very much. And no, we will not be coming for New Years'.
And now this weekend, we went to dinner to someone else's home. Two individuals. One of whom spoke not a word to me. Not one. How is this possible?
Should I let you in on a very personal secret at this time? Did you know that I genuinely dislike people? Because there is something wrong with almost each and every one of them, while I, on the other hand, am absolutely 100% perfect (tongue planted firmly in cheek).

What's amusing me today!

Facebook vs Blogger

Tuesday, December 04, 2007


Is it a one or the other sort of situation?

Peronally, I can't keep up with both. I went over to Facebook and got sucked in for awhile but I am now spit back out and avoiding it. It was amusing while it lasted, but now I just find it annoying. Kind of like a fling (not that I know first-hand, Mr. C, since you're reading...).

I am back to blogger. I don't know if I will ever venture back into Facebook again. On the other hand, I can't imagine ever completely leaving blogging behind.


What about you? Can you have a Face and Blog it too?

I'm Back.

Monday, December 03, 2007

After Tropical Storm Noel. The large tree in the foreground is no more. This is the last photo of her standing(yes, she was a she). No less than 24 hours afterwards, the neighbour gleefully set the chainsaw to her trunk and up she went in a blaze of thick smoke. Farewell tree that blocked the better ocean view.


Yes, back from Africa, but you already know that. This time I mean that I am back to blogland because work is finally easing off and I am sliding into my prolonged Christmas break. Which means that I can finally focus on fun things like crafting and sewing and baking, creating artwork with the boys and shamelessly watching television with a bowl of chips and dip.


Before I slip into my stretchy pants, I still have some further work to sort out, so I won't delay too long. I will still be talking about my trip, although after several presentations and slideshows for colleagues and friends, I am sick of hearing myself talk about it, quite frankly.


So tell me, what is on your mind this fine morning? I haven't chatted with you in ages and I want to know what is going on. Or would you like me to tell you what is annoying me today?
