Waka waka waka!

A man in a movie theater notices what looks like a goat sitting next to him. “Are you a goat?” asked the man, surprised. “Yes.” “What are you doing at the movies?” The goat replied, “Well, I liked the book.” [SOURCE] MAN. I had to read A LOT of corny goat jokes to find this […]

The Goat Whisperer

June 21, 2015

I guess we’re trying to break some world record for most parks visited in a weekend. This morning we went right over the Patello Bridge into New Westminster and into Queen’s Park. It’s a delightful place where everything happens. There are all sorts of things to do there – an auditorium, garden displays, a totem […]

Plenty to see

June 20, 2015

After another glorious #Faturday morning, we hopped back in the car and headed over to Vancouver – all the way to Queen Elizabeth Park. We got there plenty early and hardly had to share the entire grounds with anyone. It was really nice. The sun was shining again – it’s summer now. I think we’re […]

Home sweet home

June 18, 2015

I am not guilty of getting things done quickly. It’s already the middle of the year and I’m pretty sure this is the only thing I have quilted and completed. I have got to get back on my machine! Time is just slipping away from me. I hung up the 5 Cats wallhanging thanks to […]

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, […]
