September in review

September was awesome and amazing and so very many things. In terms of my things we’ll do this month list, it was also a massive failure. But, hey, it’s all good since we made great strides (literally and figuratively!) in other areas. My favourite photo of the month: The Paddlewheeler …

Things we’ll do this month: October

October is super fabulous. It’s got two heavy-hitting holidays to help it along. With Thanksgiving falling on the 10th this year and Hallowe’en in its regular spot at the end of the month, there is a lot of fun to be had as the weather really starts to cool down. Orange, green …

No act of kindness is ever wasted

Seven in the morning, Our regular Starbucks. We approach the door to enter and there is someone on the other side. He’s dressed in sweats, of a slight build and taking a long time to do whatever he’s doing. There was an awkward dance of us pausing to see if …

Walking Vancouver: Sea Island

We had to skip a week in our Walking Vancouver exploration because Kevin was a little hung up with weekend work, but we were able to get back to it last weekend. This time, we chose Sea Island in Richmond. We thought this walk would be cool because Sea Island …

Run, Tyson, run!

All week, I’ve been on pins and needles. I’ve been a high intensity mixture of anxiety and excitement and none of it is rightfully even mine. Our dear friend Tyson is doing the Pine to Palm 100 tomorrow. The 100 stands for miles. 100 miles. One hundred. Miles. Just think on that …

Growing a green thumb: tomatoes

I talk to so many people who feel like they are afraid to or can’t start a garden because they don’t have any experience taking care of one or think it might be too complicated to manage. Every time, I tell them that if I can do it, anyone can! …

Labour Day

I’m a pretty deliberate person and I like it when I know that things are done with a purpose. I also like celebrations and honouring events, past and present. For the first thirteen years in the company I work for, I was a member of the union. For four or …

Long distance yoga – update #1

I mentioned last week how my favourite partner in crime and I were closing the gap over the 295 miles between us and exploring yoga together. Well, sort of. We’d decided to sign up for Gaia and do the same 14-day yoga fundamentals course at the same time, comparing experiences and …

August in review

This month, I started with my first “things we’ll do this month” list of fun(ish – but mostly fun) goals for the month. Things I want to do, see and try throughout the month, some new things, some old things revisited. I was talking with a friend just days after …

Things we’ll do this month: September

Yay for September! The mercury in the thermometer is falling (or at least beginning to drop,) public places are becoming more scarce with summer vacationing families and tourists, pumpkin spice everything is making its way into the marketplace like a bull in a china shop. Fall is right around the …
