Orange oil

June 17, 2015

Editor’s Note: this is not a health or nutrition blog and I have not been asked to blog about this product. It was just dumb luck that I happened to have this in the cabinet. And it’s pretty old. I can’t remember when I bought it. Now that I’ve got that sorted out, I just have to […]

Take a load off.

June 16, 2015

I think I stayed up too late the last two nights watching Orange is the New Black and I have been hit with a huge wave of tired. I’ll be hitting the old fart sack (Ha. Tommy! and sorry, Mom) as soon as possible and get caught up sleep wise. I feel like a zombie. […]

Pansy baskets

June 15, 2015

The pansy baskets have perked up and are looking rather lush out at the front. I fed them seaweed yesterday. A tasty plant treat. I haven’t even thought about what to blog about today. I’m pretty much consumed with my new job at the moment and the days pretty much fly by. 5 pm still […]

Appropriately dressed for hiking.

June 14, 2015

Thanks to Mike Browne for the photo! Today we got up, hopped in the car and drove across the Lower Mainland to visit my quilting buddy from Los Angeles, Dana. After some delicious lunch that we NEARLY ate at the Tomahawk (but didn’t want to wait for half an hour for a table) we headed […]

Something different

June 14, 2015

I don’t know what came over me, but today I headed across the street to Queen’s Nails (that’s how they spell it) and asked for a pedicure AND a manicure. My feet turned out great. My finger nails? I’m getting used to. My friend Larissa wears the coolest colours of nail polish and I think […]

Front, back and whales

June 11, 2015

Quilting Bee was pretty fun today. My favourite quote of the meeting? “My daughter wants to marry Batman.” “How old is she?” “14”. So she made her daughter this Batman quilt. And she wrote on the quilt, “Always be yourself. But if you can’t be yourself, be Batman.”. Wiser words have never been spoken. So, […]

Nearly spent

June 10, 2015

The roses in the garden had a good run. The little spray roses are nearly done and so are the big ones. Darn. I’m going miss those guys, even the red ones. With any luck, they may bloom again before the summer’s over. I just really need to dead head them. Have I cleaned the […]

The Motley Crew

June 9, 2015

There was ANOTHER major MALFUNCTION with the skytrain today. Rather than grumbling about that AGAIN, we decided to focus on the positive. Here are some weirdly positive circumstances about the past few skytrain mess ups. 1) The last few times the skytrain conked out, Mike and I were off work at the same time AS […]

On the water

June 8, 2015

I’m using a 3 day old photo for today’s blog post! OH NOES! I waited too long to take my lunch and I felt like I couldn’t very well take my lunch from 3 to 4 when I’m done work at 5 pm. I’m just getting used to my new schedule. I used to take […]

The Sportscasters’ booth

June 7, 2015

Yesterday after all the fun at Maker Faire, Mike wanted to check out the finished broadcasters’ booth at the Olympic Cauldron. He’d been watching it being built for the last few weeks out the lunchroom window. This is the view from the lunchroom (with a pretty long lens). Not too shabby. I had seen it […]
