Happy Birthday to…ME!

I turned 30 on Tuesday! I don’t know whether to celebrate, or cry. But they say that 40 is the new 20, so by my calculations, I guess that puts me somewhere around 10! We celebrated the big day quietly, with family. I haven’t been feeling much like partying, what with my current schedule of […]

On the weekend, we took Liam to the College Royal, a traditional open-house-style event where the University of Guelph opens it’s doors to the public and features tours of “Old MacDonald’s Farm.” Liam was very interested in all of the animals he saw, from pigs, to ducks, to sheep.

Robin in the Rain

Backing onto Conservation Land, it is not uncommon to see Deer, Opossums, Rabbits, Groundhogs, and varying species of songbirds from the upstairs windows of our house. Being an animal lover, I find this feature of our property just great! One day last fall, as my husband and I went for a walk along the parks […]

Who’s Afraid of the Pillsbury Dough Boy?

Children are scared of all sorts of things. I remember thinking there were mummies in my bedroom closet at the age of 10, and my Mom coming in to rid my room of these intruders, dressed as an Archaeologist, and singing something about “Mummy-Busters.” Perhaps monster spray also would have worked in that particular instance?
