2020 Round Up

Well….that was something. Where do I even start. I had many grievances to file under the Festivus Pole in December, but the truth is, we’ve had it pretty good, considering. My husbands job is secure, we were already established homeschoolers, and we live on an island that has had minimal Rona cases. We’re normally a…

Top 5: Holiday Movie Night (kids edition)

From the Winter Solstice springs a plethora of holiday celebrations and here in Canada we’re pretty much all in from November 1st (somber moment on the 11th for Remembrance Day not withstanding).

Books on Our Shelf For National Family Literacy Day

If you know me, you know I love reading. All kinds of reading too, whether it be poems, short stories, blogs, novels, graphic novels, comics, or magazines! I love stories, but I also love information. I’m definitely the type to (accidentally) get stuck in a Wikipedia spiral for an hour just reading up on cases…

A Resolution

Oh damn! Did you need to read that? I sure did. I was on a search for great quotes and stumbled upon this one by Erica Jong. She just called me right out! It’s the beginning of a new year. The beginning of a new decade. I wouldn’t say I squandered my time, but I…
