Sometimes, I feel like I'm walking a delicate line between this: 

and this: 

And I like that about me. 

One Thousand Words

Because sometimes, the strangest things remind me of you. Like shopping carts and funny hats. 

And I like the reminders.

With a Little Help from my Friends...

Ringo, George, Paul and John, that is.

I need to say this. And this is the way I'm going to do it. Because The Beatles have a song for everything.

This is for you, by the way.


I have a lot to say, but none of it is happy, and some of it might come across as me being a smiotch, which I try not to be, but sometimes it happens anyway. 

So I won't say it. 

Instead, I'll think of happy things. 

And share this with you: 

Things I Like

Happiness Abounds

Today, I am happy. 

I've been thinking a lot about my Someday House (something I've always thought about, but have written seldom about. Thanks to a good traveling companion for bringing it up in her blog). I've gone so far as to look at real estate websites and find elements of houses that I like. So far, I haven't been able to pick something certain that I like, but I do have some favourites. So far, these are winning: 

(this is my most favourite)

Happy Canada Day

Dear Canada, 

Happy 143rd birthday! Thank you for being such a great country to live in. You keep me safe, thanks to those who defend it. You keep me healthy, thanks to our excellent health care system. You keep me informed and in touch with the world, thanks to people who keep us connected. You make a really nice home. You're really great to come home to after being away, always so welcoming and happy. 

Thank you for the inventions of such things as penicillin, snowmobiles, and instant mashed potatoes. And thank you for the amazingly talented people who call you home, like David Suzuki, LIGHTS, and whoever created Aero bars. 

Yours forever,
