Homework

You bet I got some yesterday. That’s one of the key things you should know if you’re going to see an ND – there’s going to be work involved. Guaranteed. I think that’s what drawn me to it so much over the years. I want to be a partner in …

Medical overload and recovery

Today, I did something that I’ve been looking forward to for more than a month: I had an appointment a new naturopath. I met her and in minutes it was like the sun came out, the birds started chirping and everything got just a little bit better. I booked my …

Good, clean fun

Tonight we saw my favourite comic who was in town at the Rio Theatre. Here’s a bio I found on the Eventbrite page for his second show here tomorrow night. Hailing from Old Hickory, Tennessee, rising stand-up comedian Nate Bargatze is selling out shows across America. Nate followed in the …

Come From Away

Today, I had the pleasure of attending a performance of the musical Come From Away. The production wasp my in town for six days and today was the last one. If you (like me until just a couple of weeks ago) don’t know what it’s about, see the Wikipedia synopsis …

The perfect fit

Remember back in January when I was on the fence about whether to keep the sous-vide that we received as a very generous Christmas gift? In the end, we came to the conclusion that we should take it back because we just weren’t ready for it. After making that decision, …

A Million Little Things

We opted to watch Friends From College over A Million Little Things. And then, when we were done, we opted to start watching A Million Little Things anyway. It has been said that friendship isn’t one big thing, it’s a million little things. That is certainly true for a group …

Lots of water. Lots of sleep.

Honestly, I’d forgotten how hard it is to do a full clean up of my diet. Twenty-four hours after I started, the foggy, dull ache at the back of my neck from being caffeine free. I was reminded of the tough work ahead by mid-afternoon when I started to feel …

Lent 2019

We’re not traditionalists. Heck, I don’t even come at religious holidays from a spiritual point of view. But, as I mentioned yesterday, I do believe in the power of abstention or denying ourselves something. I think we stand to learn more about what we value and sometimes we discover that …

Mardi Gras

In an effort to get on track and celebrate minor holidays (#17 on my 19 for 2019) I’ve had this day on my radar for the last few weeks. Of the minor holidays, I’d consider it very minor, but it was still important to me. Pancake Day is a nice …

RIP Luke Perry

Luke Perry died today and I feel kind of weird about that. I’m not one to keep up with celebrity fodder and who’s dating who, etc really kind of bores me. This, however, it feels meaningful, like a bit of an eye opener. It isn’t like I am shaking my …
