So a Clone Trooper, a fox and a Transformer walk into a bar. Okay, I didn’t take them drinking, but they did manage to stay out on the streets for two hours, stealing all the candy and chocolate from the houses in our neighbourhood. I’ve never had so much junk in my house. Between the […]
Can’t deny it much longer. Only 9 weekdays of summer vacation left, and then I have to worry about school lunches and snacks again. It’s not *too* much extra work for me, since I have one child who packs his own lunch (note to self: train the other one soon) and it’s not like they […]
I thought the last soccer game of the summer was (coincidentally) on my birthday, July 18th. After the kids were away for two weeks, just one last game! Mark took them (as some kind of present to me, I suppose) and I met them afterwards. To find that, actually, they had won their game and […]
Isn’t it nice when companies make it easier to be green? Two companies/organizations I’ve recently interacted with are highlighted below. Donate Naturally is kind of a cool idea. Order your organic and natural household goods online, get them delivered to your house (so convenient) while simultaneously donating money to local charities or groups via 15% […]
I have great, great ideas about taking antiques and giving them a fresh coat of paint, and a new lease on life. I have good taste and a great old house with lots of character…and three small destructive children, a constantly-shedding and aging dog, and a husband whose idea of ‘upcycling‘ is to take a […]
I’m reading Life After Life for June’s book club, and oh, it’s a good one. I’m on the streetcar one minute, but in the next I’m in London during the blitz with the brick dust in my throat, listening to the sirens. And wondering what the next outcome for Ursula will be. Pick that one up, […]
I love avocados, their soft and cool green flesh. Their ability to take on other flavours. The way they mash with a fork. I didn’t even eat an avocado until I was in my twenties. I consider this a great tragedy. All that guacamole I said no to, because I didn’t know what it was, […]
A few things – and some of them are more fun than the others. Last week the kids and I participated in a new game on the Teletoon Retro website called Toon Feud. You can log in via your Facebook account and answer questions about cartoons from the good old days, or in our case, about a […]

Hey, did you enter my Yoplait Source Greek yogurt and Lululemon gift card giveaway yet? (This post, like that post, is written because I am a part of the Life Made Delicious Ambassador Program by Mom Central Canada on behalf of General Mills. I received compensation as a thank you for participating and for sharing […]
Spring of self care #2 – Yoplait® Source® Greek yogurt & yoga (plus $100 Lululemon gift card giveaway!) (CLOSED)
I bought myself a ten-class yoga pass a few months ago. And I’m very thankful it had a long expiry date on it because between the husband’s business trips and various other commitments and me just not feeling like leaving the house because it’s too cold or miserable (read: too lazy), I’ve only been three or […]
