Who is David Freeman?

Who is David Freeman? I’ll tell you who he is. He’s the chump that got new boots.  I got his old ones.  Let me explain. I was about 8 or 9 years old. At the end of summer, my mother would line all of us kids up in the basement beside the barrel. The barrel …

Breaking News- The Vac Pack Demonstration

7am Friday morning.   I wake up and the first thing on my mind is that this is the last full day that my daughter is home. I make a cup of coffee and sit down to blog, careful to not wake anyone else up. I want to get to my post about the benefits …

Cost and Benefits of Life After 40. Part 1

The strangest things happen after you turn 40. Some things you notice almost immediately.  It’s as if the clock struck midnight on your birthday and a large magician in the sky waved a magic wand over you and “poof”, stuff just gets weird.   I suspected my eyesight was starting to change in the last …

Wonderings on the Apocolypse and why did my bath towel smell like Fritos.

Yesterday I took my morning shower and grabbed a fresh towel out of the linen cabinet. I wrapped it around me in the usual way and brought the towel to my face to smell the wonderful mountain breeze scent. I love the scent of freshly washed clothes and linens, especially if they have been hung …

ADD and LMNOP- I think I’ve got it all today.

My plan this morning was to clean  the house and do some gardening. Sounds like a pretty clear plan, right? I got up this morning and wrote my list of what I wanted to do today. I hopped in the car and went to the garden centre to get my chocolate brown mulch. Love that stuff! …

Baby Steps and then Graduation and How My Kids Just Used My Uterus To Get Here.

I wasn’t happy heading to the graduation ceremony this morning. It had nothing to do with being sad that it was ending an era and meant my daughter was moving on. It was because I really don’t like these elaborate affairs and ceremonies. There are people at these deals. Lots of ’em!  In crowds I …

It’s A Tough Pill To Swallow!

I have a strong gag reflex and I am on an antibiotic. It’s not a good combination. Every day, three times a day, for the past 8 days, it’s the same routine. I stand at the kitchen sink armed with a full glass of water or milk and a submarine sized pill. I nervously shift the …

A Lesson in Fashion or How I Got My Son To Pull His Pants Up

I try not to judge. Especially when it comes young people and their appearances. I try not to comment on my children’s fashion choices. I was young once, I get it. Sometimes you just want to experiment or express yourself creatively through the clothes or the hairstyles or the makeup you wear or even the tattoos that you …

Armageddon? Yikes!

In the last two years there has been a strange sound heard in our city. They call it the Windsor Hum.  There has been numerous reports across the world about this same or similar noise. I am intrigued by it and have to admit that I have spent a good deal of time, more than …

Bikers Eat Broccoli

I was standing in line at the grocery store yesterday. In front of me was a “biker”. He had long hair that was held back in a pony tail. He had on a leather vest and a thick leather belt with a large belt buckle. He was wearing big black boots with a buckle. This …

The Musical Soundtrack of my Life

I’m heading out the door: I’m on my way to work. I’m back out into the world again after a very very long time and I am energized and feel very much alive every time I head to my job. I bounce to the car, throw my briefcase and my lunch in the back seat, …

The physics of it all!

I woke up early this morning, excited to sit down and write. I haven’t been this inspired in a long time. I have been planning this for days. Since my last post, I spent countless hours trying to figure out how to set up my blog theme and the layout of this page. Who knew …
