A Week-ish in Outfits

This was such a weird week, it was supposed to be our first week back in office, but I actually only worked out of the office on Monday, I'll explain why in each day, but it was such a confusing, fun, exciting, productive, week. The times really do be feeling precedented again. High: Monday evening … Continue reading A Week-ish in Outfits

Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

I finished stitching this canvas last year, but I am so terrified of ruining a canvas by cutting into it, which is a requirement of finishing, I think there are multiple parts to that fear, the actual monetary cost of the canvas and threads, and then the labour cost of the time spent stitching. So … Continue reading Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

Summer Spontaneity

This week I had some of one of those magic summer days where an amazing day just kind of falls together, the kind of day that hasn't been able to happen since 2019 and just how wonderful they are. It was hot on Monday, the high hit 36C, 40C in the sunshine, 104F and air … Continue reading Summer Spontaneity

Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 5

Happy Wednesday everyone, it is a weird week for some Canadians, yesterday, Tuesday, was National Indigenous People's Day and some workplaces close to acknowledge it, especially if they work for or employ a large number of Indigenous people, so this includes my workplace.

High: I have a few highs this week, … Continue reading A Week-ish in Outfits

A Weekend in Winnipeg

I drove to Winnipeg from where I live, it took about 5 hours. The highway was flooded over then, so I took the detour and ended up on this dirt road. It was actually alright, and I would much rather avoid flooding out my engine and take a few minutes longer to get there. And … Continue reading A Weekend in Winnipeg

Friday Favorites: 06/16/2022

Phew, I am hosting tomorrow night and I have just sat down at 11pm to write this post after cooking evening. I can't believe that I thought that I might be able to pull it together in two hours after work tomorrow.

What I’m Buying in June

So like I mentioned in my May Financial Fitness Check In, we are tightening the belt in June. Also, to be honest I don't know if there is really anything else I need at the moment. Except to get my winter tires swapped out, a pair of white pants (I am having a very hard … Continue reading What I’m Buying in June

Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 4

Is it just me or is Wednesday the real worst day of the week, like Monday you're coming off the weekend, Thursday and Friday you're ramping up to the weekend, but Wednesday is just the bleak mid-winter of the week. The importance of public and private lives. Why do bathing suits cost so much? How … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 4
