My kid tricked me today. 🙄
We’re in the midst of a lot of family time, right?
Everyone is home. Constantly.
And, this is the case for another week before school and work begins anew…
We’re going to Paris today.
Just for a couple of hours, mind you. And not for the food, or shopping.
Me and shopping do not get along. 🙄
Not usually, that is. There are odd times every blue moon or so when I actually feel like browsing though stores and looking at things, touching and trying on things, fantasizing about things and even very occasionally buying things.
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.
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? Continue reading
I was feeling down and blah when I went shopping at Winners. The boy child needs sports shirts, he only has two that fit and they’re in the wash. I thought, today is as good a day as any, so I took my depressed state to the store.
I stopped at Walmart first. I hate Walmart but they have boy clothes that are affordable. Nothing appropriate was found so I left, happily, with a slight spring in my step. Na na I didn’t spend money in your store today… Continue reading
I have a dilemma on my hands.
Tonight, while my daughter is at her outdoor baseball practice, I will be visiting the Bulk Barn. They closed the store near our home, so the next most conveniently located one is near the diamond where she practices.
I love the Bulk Barn. I get all my nuts and seeds from there to eat during my low/no carb diet spurs I go through every once in a while. I get oats and specialty flours from there, spices and sprinkles for the child-baker in this house… I even get dog treats from there if we’re dog sitting.
The Bulk Barn in Canada has specialty containers you can purchase, or bring your own clean ones, to discourage from plastic bag usage. It’s no secret that there is too much plastic polluting our world today. I’ve written about this before (see further reading below), and am keenly aware of our own [mis]-use of plastic.

I’ve been overwhelmed with wasteful behaviour lately.
And I keep thinking, just let me get through this day, this week, this stretch and I’ll change for the better. I’ll make better choices AFTER this happens or that is over with.
It never works out that way. Continue reading
Question of the day:
Do I attract lunatics?
This is a rhetorical question.
It appears that I cannot leave the house without stuff happening to me. Is is something I do that turns every shopping trip into an unwanted adventure? Continue reading
My daughter and I went to buy some materials at a Big Box Store the other day. She wants to adopt some guinea pigs and we’re building our own cage. Continue reading
