Trying hard
Friday, June 03, 2016      6 comments

I haven't been the same person since I got fired in December 2013. Something has been broken in me, and I have never been able to regain my mojo. I do not like the person I have become since then. My goal for this year is to work on my h... Read more

Sounds like a war cry!? It is the cry of the healthy veggies simmering together. It is also the rallying cry of healthy people! With my SP team, I have started a challenge to keep us busy during summer. We are zooming into Europe... Read more

Tonight I gathered my courage and climb down and up my stairs…. Doesn’t seem like an achievement, does it? Well, after my stunt on my way to the pool one month ago, and being in a cast until last Tuesday, it is my MAJOR achievement of the m... Read more

“In my green days”
Sunday, May 23, 2010      19 comments

After being back from Paris, it made me realize that I could never be able to live in this city anymore (how did I manage to live there? it puzzles me!) or any big city. Like any city, it is too noisy, too crowded, everything goes too fast even ... Read more

What were you doing on the 26th of April 1986? Do you remember this day? Does Chernobyl mean something to you? I was 16, and I still remember it. It has changed my life. This accident and the Rainbow Warrior case—just one year before- deepl... Read more

Ants are fascinating… when you are not overrun by them. A few days ago, I saw a few of them in our entrance, and didn’t really pay much attention, but last night they finally found our larder in the kitchen. At 1 a.m., Jeff and I were still clea... Read more

What to bring back from Switzerland?
Saturday, March 06, 2010      10 comments

I remembered well the first time I went to Geneva. I was 5, and it was the first time I crossed a border. Since I could speak, my father told me I kept pestering him for going “abroad”, across this fascinating border. Switzerland was abroad in... Read more
Joys of Winter
Monday, March 01, 2010      12 comments

I’ve been enjoying my first winter here. I love: winter season, cold weather, winter sports, and snow. Snow is magic, it covers everything, including my messy garden. It’s the time of the year where the “best lawn” contest is postponed… Ha... Read more
Bluebird Day

After snowing for days, we finally had a perfect day to go skiing. The beauty of being self-employed is you don't have to ask anyone if you can take a few hours to go skiing, and it is very difficult not to go when you live at the bottom of th... Read more
Skate Skiing, or is it Ski Skating?
Tuesday, January 26, 2010      14 comments

I saw both names. We just say Skating here. A few years ago, my relatives switched to skate skiing, and I can't follow them anymore as classic cross-country skiing is not... Read more
