Traditional gifts for the ninth anniversary are pottery or willow. Modern equivalent is leather. (Wocka Wocka!) Although, we already covered the "leather" gift a couple of years back. (Wink, wink, nudge nudge.)
I sort of forgot about th... Read more
I made it to the gym today. I was a little surprised that I managed the treadmill as well as I did. I ended up trudging for over an hour. I was pleased with that. I backed off on the weight for anything that had to do with my back or glutes ... Read more
Somewhere beyond the capabilities of my back, it appears.
I took the kidlet to a wave pool yesterday and that seemed to help a bit. That surprised me because I was walking pretty slowly at the pool but it seemed a bit better last night. ... Read more
Today the kidlet was invited to her first real birthday party. The little girl down the block turned five and since they were in preschool together and have been playing a bit here and there since, the kidlet got invited. It was really nice be... Read more

Guess that means I forfeit my perfect attendance and Trivia Leader badges for August. Ha! I'm going CAMPING! WooHoo!!
I even picked up my fishing license tonight. If we get really lucky we'll eat trout this weekend but otherwise the die... Read more
Went to the Farmers' Market at Millarville today. Since our garden is almost ready we kept a lid on our purchases but did get some green beans and new potatoes. Our beans are just flowering and while our potatoes might be ready we're just not ... Read more
Took the kidlet to the Alberta Kennel Club Dog Show at Spruce Meadows today. I have to say I was very pleased with all the dog owners we met because pretty well everyone walking around with their dog let the kidlet pet it. And not for just a f... Read more
