That Dandy Little Lion

This is our second spring in our little rental house in Sackville, NB. And I recall witnessing and being delighted by the same dandelion last year. This intrepid little fucker has pushed out the side of our driveway by the chimney. Delightful. View this post on...

My Birthday 2020

Yesterday was my birthday! I'm not one for parties or big celebrations anyway, but it was an extra-quiet birthday this year with everyone self-isolating and social distancing... My love was off work for the day so we took a drive up to the Northumberland Strait (still...

I don’t know what to say

I'm trying not to let the anxiety take over. Like many people (most?) I'm not really sure what to do. So, I'm doing what I can and staying home. As I've said jokingly to my friends, self-isolation and social distancing are totally in my wheelhouse! I don't feel like I...

Self-Isolate

Hello, March. I'm well. I failed at posting every day in February, but I learned a lot from trying. Now to see if I can implement that learning! In the meantime, I freaking love this: xkcd.com

Taking my Time

I often think about my relationship to time. I do not like to be too busy. I like to have a lot of freedom and open space in my days. I like to follow my whims. I enjoy just sitting. Thinking or basking in a sunbeam or watching the steam curl up from my cup of coffee...

Granola

I've been making granola for years now. We love it. Typically with yogurt (plain dairy-free coconut is the best), but sometimes with cashew milk. As a late-nite snack I'll throw in a handful of chocolate chips. Time to share the recipe! it's super easy to make....

February Television

We watch a lot of tv. Too much? Perhaps. Two shows we've been enjoying lately: Picard & The World According to Jeff Goldblum. I typically like the Star Trek shows. Even when they're not very good, they're still pretty good. I didn't even watch much TNG when it was...

Pathfinder

A war cleric, half-elf invoker, gnome paladin and a human rogue walk into a bar, looking for adventure. We found it! A one-shot dungeon crawl, hosted by a friend who has created this campaign in order to introduce people to Pathfinder (and DMing). Pathfinder is close...
