On Good Neighbours, and Good Food!

Last evening, we shared a meal and a few hours of comradery with our neighbours, and their children. It was a delightful evening of food and conversation. The hours passed as we discussed work, the neighbourhood, blogging, kids and life in general. I wanted to post a link to my neighbour Katherine Siebert’s beautiful new […]

Top 10 Tips for a Beautiful Garden

Okay, so it’s January and I am dreaming of working in my garden…only 3 more months of snow, and hopefully I can stop dreaming and start digging! While I am not an overly experienced gardener, I really enjoy getting my hands into the soil, chosing my plants in the spring, and watching as these small […]

Butter Chicken Recipe

After trying many different versions of Butter Chicken, both homemade and from various restaurants, I invented this recipe and have since found it to be a favorite among those who have tried it.

I […]

I think nowadays, most new parents have heard of the infamous “Ferber Method” of allowing children to fall asleep by controlling the amount of time between “comforting interventions.” Dr. Richard Ferber’s theory, is that babies will learn to self-comfort after a series of increasing intervals of parental comforting, each interval getting increasingly longer until the […]

SpongeBob, Eat Your Heart Out!

I don’t really watch “SpongeBob SquarePants” (well, maybe once in a while) But from what I have seen of the show, the writing is very clever, and it seems to be a cartoon intended more for an adult audience. At any rate, I figure that the rare time that I actually have the opportunity to […]

Baby Center – Best Information and Advice

As a relatively new Mom, I am always looking for information on babies, as they do not come with a how-to manual, which frankly, I think is wrong! Anyhow, the Baby Center website has tons of great information and articles on pre-conception, pregnancy, babies, toddlers and children! On many occasions, I found the exact information […]

To Bead, or not to Bead..?

As an enthusiast of all things pretty, well, at least pretty, shiny, wearable things, one of my favorite hobbies is making bead jewelry. I was searching the web today for information on bead shops, and I came across this listing of bead retailers in Ontario. Of course, this is probably only helpful to you if […]

Good For A Laugh or Two…or Three…

While I was pregnant with my son, I was desperate to find a book on the ins and out’s (pardon the pun) of pregnancy. I came across Kaz Cooke’s “A Bun in the Oven” at our local Chapters bookstore. I don’t recall ever laughing so much at a book, let alone one about pregnancy, but […]
