We spent several hours last night devouring episode after episode of this show called The Good Place. Have you heard of it? Neither had we. I assume that you haven’t heard of it because that is the only valid excuse you have for not introducing me to it sooner. No, …

They can schedule as many Thursday night games as they want, but kickoff for a new NFL season will ALWAYS be on Sunday. Even though my team played three days ago, I couldn’t accept that the real start to the year was any sooner than 10PST today. It was nice …

I woke up to a quiet house this morning. Kevin is out all day doing lacrosse work so I had the whole place and day to myself. I have no shortage of things I want to do, but after my blueberry jalapeno jelly from the other day was a total …

I’m a firm believer that multitasking is a recipe for disaster or at the very least, a promise that nothing will be done well. I know it makes people feel busy and important and all that, but it really is among the dumbest habits we’ve glorified in recent decades. I …

One of our cats is ridiculously old. Not according to Guinness, I’m sure and she certainly doesn’t live up to urban myth standards either. When I first got her, she was assessed as being at least two years old. She’d had a home, but she’d been abandoned, presumably left behind …

I woke up with a wicked headache this morning. It’s something that often happens when I clean my diet up after a few days of drinking coffee and/or eating without conscience. It’ll last for a day or two and remind me that it’s really a lot better to just make …

A couple of years ago, I wrote this post about Labour Day, its roots and why it is a meaningful day to all of us. I’d urge you to read it through if you’re feeling like the holiday relates to nothing more than a long weekend, the end of summer …

We went to see The Sandlot this morning. It was playing in the theatre just below our apartment. I’d never seen it before, but I’d promised my friend Hinda that someday I would. (It’s been 25 years since it first came out!) When we were looking for something to do …

September!! The birthday month for a couple of my favourite people! Back to school! Harvest season! 🍁 I’m excited for September’s arrival for all of the above reasons. Also, NFL football starts next week and NHL hockey is just around the corner. Kevin is taking a trip to Philadelphia later …
