Guelph – Lots To Do!

A favorite place of ours has always been the University of Guelph’s Arboretum. In fact, we like it so much, that we were married there, and we visit often year-round! While I will admit that I prefer it in the warm sunny months of May through September, with the Lilacs in full bloom or the […]

Hurricane Katrina’s Forgotten Ones

As part of my regular afternoon routine, in between diaper changes, playtime and trying to figure out what on earth to make for dinner, I watched Oprah yesterday.

It is one of the most beautiful places in the world, so abundant with history, charming, friendly people and of course, the ocean is spectacular. We began our journey in Halifax. The ferry trip between […]

On Stayin’ Alive…Or Should I Say…Awake?

Before I was overtaken by illness that rendered me useless for 2 days, Stuart and I had gone out on a date to enjoy the BeeGees/Neil Diamond concert here in town. As we walked into the theatre, I made a snarky comment to Stuart that we were the youngest people there, and that I hoped […]

Pad Thai Recipe

Here is a recipe I found on-line, and modified slightly. It was absolutely delicious, and a very authentic tasting Pad Thai. In finding the ingredients for it, I got to make a trip to the Asian Market and get a Coconut Bun as a treat!!! I took this picture of the finished dish…it yields about […]

Wild Washerwoman

While I do have a washer, dryer and other modern conveniences that prevent me from having to do my laundry by beating the clothes on a rock, today I felt like a Wild Washerwoman. I have never in my life done so many loads of laundry in one day! I will surely swoon at the […]

Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Boy am I tired! I guess it is the time of the year (or maybe the fact that I am staying up much too late these days working on my bead projects!) In any case, I wanted to post this recipe tonight, that I recently invented for Stuffed Mushroom Caps. I think they are great…I […]
