MIA

Well, it seems I’ve been MIA. I hope you’re having a fantastic summer with lots of reenergizing and reconnecting time. We finished our homeschooling at the end of May so as to prepare for a busy summer.  And what a busy summer it’s been!  It’s a summer centred around people–family, friends and new friends.  Isn’t…… Continue reading MIA

the requisite mother’s day post

That day of celebration for those women who have been given the responsibility of raising a tiny human has come upon us once again.

Perhaps,…… Continue reading wrong side of the bed

christmas gifting ~ wrap it up

Like so many, I love Christmas.  My df girl and I started watching Christmas movies on the first of November.  She perfected her Christmas playlist and listens to it whenever she can.  My cl boy cannot understand this.  He believes there should be a law: NO CHRISTMAS MOVIES, MUSIC OR DECORATIONS UNTIL DECEMBER 1.  Caps…… Continue reading christmas gifting ~ wrap it up

there is a season

Seems I’ve been MIA the last few weeks.  We have had a steady stream of visitors this summer…and more to come in the weeks ahead.  We’ve also made a trip to Ontario this month and one the previous month.  We don’t usually travel in the summer, as that’s our busy time, but we actually made…… Continue reading there is a season
