I have been eyeing the KitchenAid stand mixer for a while now and am always talking about the various sales for this product. Well, the other night my husband dragged me to the store without telling me why and he bought it for me! This is a... Read more

It is an incredibly beautiful day today. Yes, its chilly but so sunny out there. I will have to take my camera on my walk because for sure there will be ducks out on the river. They are so funny to watch and I am amazed at the relationshi... Read more

It was a cloudy, cool day but I decided its time to get back on track again, so I went for my walk before the Big Game (Grey Cup, of course). It was good to get out and walk again because it has been a long time. I have been falling to piece... Read more

Okay, so I've been a member of sparkpeople for over a year and have basically accomplished nothing but gain weight. This is not sparkpeople's fault - I have been having a really hard time sticking to it. I will loose and then boom - go of... Read more

It is interesting to look back for one week and figure out how much time one wastes and how much more time is wasted making excuses! Oh boy! I haven't blogged, haven't entered a journal entry, and haven't entered any food eaten. That is i... Read more

I and many like me desperately need freezing weather and snow. The enormous amount of rain we have had have pretty well maxed out our allergies and the only thing that will save us is to get rid of all that pollen, leaf dust and mould. They ... Read more
A Good Thing I Raked Yesterday
Wednesday, October 21, 2009      2 comments

I got a lot done outside yesterday. I managed to fill 10 bags of leaves and get caught up with the neighbourhoods comings and goings. I enjoy living in an older area because people seem to walk more here. It is especially good when there... Read more

We live in the oldest part of the town (our house is 100 yrs+)and as a consequence have many large trees. Its beautiful only in the spring and summer. This time of year they tend to loose their leaves in sequence. The first one is the ... Read more

I seem to lead my life in a state of perpetual chaos. My intentions are good; I mentally make a list of priorities and then go to it. The problem is that I make too tight a list and have yet to learn to leave some room for the "what-ifs"... Read more
