Music Monday – “I wish I had carved my bad poetry/Into your back while you were asleep/A little something to remind you of me/A little something for her to hold on to”

I’m fascinated by coincidences and have had a few recently… Went to a housewarming party this weekend and a guy mentions the completely random fact that they ended up sitting next to a previous owner of their Regina home in a bar in Saskatoon, never having met him before! The same housewarming party was hosted […]

Friday Fun Link – What Screams Upper Middle Class?

[Edit: This post started as a way for me to share what I thought was an interesting Reddit post.  But then I had the idea to use it to talk about whether I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised. Re-reading this […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – 10 Reasons I Drive A 10 Year Old Car

So, this is a bit of a different take on “Throwback Thursday” but since my car is in the shop right now after being rear-ended about a month and a half ago (and since I’m driving around a brand new rental with all the newest features – backup camera!  Bluetooth connectivity!  Heated seats that actually work!) […]

10 Things That Excite Me About @thejagmeetsingh Winning #ndpldr (and 5 That Make Me Nervous)

If everything Jagmeet Singh’s team said about how many new members they’d signed up, how much support they were getting in vote rich Ontario and BC, how young people were rallying around their candidate, and their fundraising totals, turned out to be true, it seemed like Jagmeet Singh would have a really good chance at […]

Saturday Snap – Our Seasonal Site Favourite Memories

It’s a silly thing but I sort of felt ripped off that, even after many provincial parks had a fire ban all year, the one we ended up at only implemented a fire ban for the last long weekend of the summer. We still had fun shoving some red Christmas lights into our fire pit […]

Friday Fun Link – The Definitive Ranking of Every Tragically Hip Song

Lots to argue with here but points for even trying to make this list (the author strikes on an interesting conceit to make it work, grouping songs thematically to count them down.)

10 Reasons Why Taking A Seasonal Camp Site Led To Me Having One of the Best Summers of My Life!

It could’ve easily gone the other way. If we’d had a rainy summer, if we had neighbours who played loud rap until all hours of the morning (nothing against rap – just not my idea of campground music), if we hadn’t been able to get out to our site as much as we did, if […]

Five Things I Wish We Bought For Our Seasonal Camp Site

Following up on yesterday’s post listing my five best garage sale finds for our seasonal camp site, here are some things I wish we had bought, either new or used, that we didn’t for one reason or another… 1. Ice Maker – Early in the year, I did the math and figured it would be cheaper […]

Five Best Garage Sale Finds For Our Seasonal Camp Site

I’m a garage sale addict at the best of times – who can resist finding something that someone else paid $20 or $100 for and being able to buy it for pennies on the dollar?  Plus part of the addiction is how random it is – like the slot machine in a casino, you never […]

Five Respective Advantages of Saskatchewan’s Provincial & Regional Parks

[These lists are based on my somewhat limited experiences with both provincial and regional parks so the things I mention might not apply at all parks of those types.] Provincial Parks Provincial parks provide free firewood to campers Arguably, provincial parks have more modern and cleaner Service Centres for their washrooms and showers. Have paved […]
