Daily Life

Usually non scrapbook related, just about my daily activities. Sometimes interesting, sometimes not so interesting :)

Early morning excitement

Tweet It’s not what you think. Really. Our morning started the same as usual today, the dogs woke up really early and I let them out into the backyard. Then I went back to bed to get back under the warm covers. Steve got up a few minutes later to let the dogs back in.(…)

Not a Creature Was Stirring…

Tweet …except for a mouse! Yes it’s that time of night where it’s quiet all through the house. I make my last “rounds” to make sure all the lights are off, and to check the animals that are currently in the house. (the others are out in their own space – our converted garage –(…)

Right now….baby edition!

Tweet The post from a couple nights ago of what I am loving right now got me thinking of all the baby related things I’m loving right now. So here is a post just for all that stuff. – large bibs. I had no idea how many bibs we’d go through once Ava started eating(…)

Right now

Tweet I’m loving…. – no more snow on the ground. Finally it looks like Spring might be on the way! It’s been a very long cold bitter winter here. (or maybe I’m just bitter). I’m going to say this again: I miss living in California! – Avocado. As in I am seriously obsessed with it(…)

Look who “hopped” by today

Tweet Happy Easter! The Easter Bunny stopped, er, hopped by today for Ava’s first Easter. Here he is visiting with our 2 baby chicks: “Nuna” and “Lydia”. Actually it’s one of our Flemish Giant Rabbits “Munroe” but he might as well be the Easter bunny. He weighs more than Ava does! Munroe is very used(…)

Farewell wee friend

Tweet With sad hearts and tears rolling down our cheeks we said goodbye to our sweet little rat Stanley this morning. Yes a rat. He was the friendliest rat I’ve ever come across and he lived well beyond the life expectancy of an average of 1-2 years. Stanley was almost 3 years old. When we(…)

Eat, Play, Sleep

Tweet That’s pretty much how it goes around here right now: Eat. Play. Sleep. Repeat. Well for Ava that is. I feel like I am still not getting much in the sleep department. She slept better when she was a newborn until 2 months old. Then the numerous wakings throughout the night started. But it(…)

My Sweet Valentine

Tweet It’s funny how fast things change isn’t it? 4 years ago I was living in Vancouver, anxiously waiting to see if I passed round one of the admission requirements for the EATM program. 3 years ago I was living in California, attending the EATM program and newly dating Steve. It was our first Valentine’s(…)

Happy New Year

Tweet Happy New Year! I took a little hiatus from the blogging world the last 4 months. I have been enjoying my family, loving my little daughter (who is now almost 5 and a half months old!), and working lots too. I will be back soon with a new post

I took a chance….

Tweet         …and so so thankful I did. 4 years ago: I was pretty miserable, even though on the outside I seemed happy. I had basically settled on the fact that I might not ever have kids, never be truly in love, and never have a job/ career that I enjoy. Then(…)
