Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Wedding Date (May 1999)

This is a picture of Shea and I just as we showed up for my sister’s wedding.  Nice to know we’re just as good looking today as we were back then! (Well, Shea anyhow.)

Music Monday – “Let’s go make some history/Before we fall apart/True love might escape us, girl/But at least we got some heart”

“A Million Dollars” – Joel Plaskett

I Can’t Decide If I Should Feel Guilty About Missing So Many of My Daily Blog Posts Due to Camping

Nah… 😉

Music Monday – “I just wanna Rolly Rolly Rolly with a dab of ranch/I already got some designer to hold up my pants/I just want some ice on my wrist so I look better when I dance/Have you lookin’ at it, put you in a trance”

Not the most traditional campfire song but here’s another Music Monday song that we’re hearing a lot at our seasonal campsite thanks to Pace who’s a bit more plugged into current music trends than I am. 😉 (One fun highlight of our most recent weekend was watching him create various playlists on our streaming music […]

10 Things I’ve Dealt With In Libraries That Aren’t Covered in Library School

Another unofficial theme for our seasonal camp site at Echo Valley Campground, especially after last weekend when we hit Echo Beach a couple times… “Echo Beach” – Martha and the Muffins

I did a post about the advantages of a seasonal camp site so it’s only fair to list some of the disadvantages. I already mentioned that it ends up being more expensive than you realise. You end up feeling obligated (or at least we do) to go out to your camp site as much as […]

Saturday Snap – Abandoned Bike

Pace took a couple friends camping this past weekend.  At one point, he asked if they could ride out to the lookout near our site and take their bikes down the hill. I interpreted this to mean “Down the little dirt path to the point just beyond the lookout” but he took it to mean […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our First Visit to Echo Valley Provincial Park (June 2015)

Before we had our seasonal site there, we stayed at Echo Valley for a weekend in June 2015. We had a site backing right onto the main playground, only steps from where our seasonal site is now (I often sit in our seasonal site and look over diagonally at the ever-changing nightly campers staying in […]

Four for Four!

  Today marked the opening of the newest Regina Public Library branch, the Albert Branch which has moved into the Mâmawêyatitân Centre, an integrated facility offering numerous services to the community.
