Hockey Night in Canada

Hockey Night in Canada

In the post “Bye, Bye, Great Pumpkin” I talked about getting rid of our orange family room.  I hired a painter and re-painted the room a calm and soothing grey.  Took me a while to put the room back together because once I removed everything from the room, I didn’t want to put it all back. … Continue reading

ON TOP OF THE WORLD

ON TOP OF THE WORLD

“But look again!  Those terrifying walls are moving, are changing! A new light is not only creeping over them, but is coming out from their very shadows. See those flattened slopes above the dark sandstone on top of granite; even at this very moment they are being colored in gorgeous stripes of horizontal layers of yellow, brown, white, … Continue reading

FRIDAY’S PHLOG

Yesterday I received a nomination for “lovely blog award” from terry1954.  As always I’m thrilled, honoured, humbled and somewhat shy when someone says – hey I like your work.  Thank you Terry for the award.  For those of you who don’t know Terry, she is an amazing lady who cares for her ill brother.  Even … Continue reading

THERE WAS A TIME

THERE WAS A TIME

There was a time when I would fall asleep to the sweet lullabies of  frogs and crickets the songs of these creatures would lull me into a dream state and in the morning I would awake to the beautiful melodies  of my feathered friends each morning I would stir in my sleep and pull the … Continue reading

My favourite picture with the boys – oh my where has the time gone!  Can’t forget grandmothers,  after all that’s where it all started.  Below two very different woman but both have been a huge influence in all of our lives and helped shaped us into the type of people that we are today.  Same … Continue reading

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

After three days in Disneyland (can you say Mickey Mouse), my husband and I were ready for something different.  Before heading to California I pre-booked a 4 day pass to Disneyland and a one day pass to Universal Studios.   We lost one day because of car problems in San Francisco and our hotel reservations … Continue reading

CAN YOU SAY MICKEY MOUSE?

CAN YOU SAY MICKEY MOUSE?

Fast forward our trip to California and we’ve arrived in Anaheim.  Boys were so excited all the way from San Francisco, they could not wait to meet Mickey.  As I’ve chronicled in “happiest place on earth” and “left my heart in San Francisco,” we finally arrived to our key destination.  We were booked in Anaheim … Continue reading

Basic Brownies I made some brownies today for my son who also happens to be a certified chocoholic.  He has figured out if he does his chores without being told or grumbling, I am more likely to make some of his favorite treats!  I like this recipe because…

I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO

After our travels through Oregon and Yreka California, we arrived in San Francisco.  GPS is such an incredible invention – just plug in where you want to go and it takes you there.  One problem, sometimes it takes you on routes that aren’t exactly the best way.  We wanted to cross Golden Gate Bridge but … Continue reading

In February 2010, Vancouver, BC hosted the Olympics.  Most schools closed for two weeks to accommodate the momentous event.    Our family being sports fans, you think we would have hung out here in Vancouver!   Hell no we decided it was the perfect time to jump  in the car and take a road trip … Continue reading
