Things we’ll do this month: July

I’ve lost track of the days. I keep thinking it’s Sunday. One tiny extra 24 hours tacked onto the weekend and it’s mayhem in my mind. We did some wandering yesterday, went for brunch, visited some loved ones, came home for dinner and watched the fireworks from our balcony. They …

The summer embrace

July 1st. Canada Day. The imprecise midway mark of the year. The time when we look forward the upcoming summer vibes and back at the goals we had at the start of the year. How’s your 2018 going? Mine has been mostly what I thought it would be. I made …

Books and podcasts and coffee

I had yesterday off and was able to piece together a coffee date with someone who is away from work right now and who I haven’t been able to catch up with in a while. While sipping our lattes, we proceeded to do exactly what we do when we’re at …

Rediscovery

I got some news last week that sent me reeling back to years past and in a good way. The Old 97s are headlining #RnRSEA and I could not be happier! What great news to start the day! pic.twitter.com/RPoPm0q4bn — Carly-Ann Rigby (@carlyrigby) April 25, 2018 As I mentioned yesterday, …

Things we’ll do this month: May

So, I’m a day late in even starting this post and another day late in finishing it. That’s mostly because it took me a day to even accept that we are already entering the fifth month of the year then another day to get over it. Which is funny because …

Restoring faith in human nature

I saw this tweet the other day and it so perfectly articulated something I only kind of even knew that I wanted to say myself. “If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon.” – Kathrine Switzer #bmovm#runvanpic.twitter.com/57frc9Kx9C — Vancouver Marathon (@BMOVanMarathon) April 14, 2018 …

Does practice make perfect?

I feel like I’ve been pretty clear about my intention to write more online. For the past couple of years, I’ve been writing, but not so much in this or other spaces where I use my name to claim my work. Most of my work has just been kept relatively …

The underdog

Monday morning after Super Bowl, I opted for the Oh She Glows Pink Power Detox Smoothie We woke up today and the Philadelphia Eagles are the Super Bowl champions. It’s strange. I never saw that coming, but hey, it really doesn’t make a difference in my life. I once dated …

Super Sunday

I’ve been looking forward to today. One might say it’s what got me through the week. Not only is it the Super Bowl, but it’s also my Mom’s birthday and we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate both at our house. I’ve always wanted to have a Super Bowl party so …

Is listening to an audiobook the same as reading?

Full disclosure: I’ve never listened to an audiobook. I like my audio in small doses. Short bursts like songs and podcasts. (I generally steer away from any podcast that runs longer than thirty to sixty minutes, though I have a few exceptions.) I just don’t really think I could enjoy …
