On the eve of a jam packed weekend

I hate shopping. Especially on Fridays. But then, the growing teen needs pants and shorts and both kids need sleepwear so when I saw this top, for me, I tried it on and bought it. 😊

Growth spurts

Today I took my boy to Costco to get his passport photo done. And mine, too. Both of us are due to renew…

It appears a trip to Switzerland is in the works. My girl child is pestering me to death, and my family in Europe had given us a standing invitation, so now I’m finally figuring out what dates would be suitable.

But this does not happen often.

Now we’re in the first week of December and Christmas is looming. ⏳

Christmas. This is another thing that I am ambivalent about.

I have these visions of nicely decorated rooms, scented candles, cookies and other special treats lying about, relaxing music to listen to…

It doesn’t often work out this way. And I realize this is entirely my own fault.

I have a case of the If-Onlys.

Broken fridges, and bootie wearing pooches

Do you see what this is?

Why yes, those are snow covered coolers.

There’s snow on my coolers because this is Canada and this year snow decided to come early.

But why are there coolers on my back porch in winter?
