Music Monday – “It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion/Gender to skin color the complexion of your pigment/The same fight that lead people to walk-outs and sit-ins/It’s human rights for everybody/There is no difference”

In our digital age, where we are (or should be) trained to be skeptical about everything we read and see – was that model photoshopped? Was that anti-vaccine information published in a scientific journal or by a non-PhD holding, former Playmate?  Was that B-level celebrity’s meltdown just an attempt to gain publicity and attention? – [...]

Saturday Snap – A Sleeping Angel

The Best Christmas Ever?

Only partly tongue-in-cheek, I often think that the best Christmas I ever had was when we were living in Calgary and Shea had to work on a 7am to 3pm shift on Christmas Day, leaving me all alone for the day. It sounds sad but it turned out to be a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable day. [...]

Music Monday – “Your love is like an ocean/That always takes me home/Whispering wind is blowing/Telling me I’m not alone” #gc101 #greycup #yqr #riders

Well, in the end, the Riders held on to win the Grey Cup yesterday in a game (and really an entire season) that felt pre-destined.  The Grey Cup losses in 2009 & 2010, the Grey Cup being held in Regina for only the third time in its history (and last time at historic Taylor Field), [...]

Two Reasons I’m Thankful Today (And Every Day)

I get to regularly witness scenes like this (I especially love how he leans in to hug her after making her giggle!)

Friday Fun Link – A Very Special Tattoo

As I mentioned yesterday in my random thoughts about the McCartney concert post, one of the things I learned in advance of the show is that McCartney often picks out someone holding a sign in the front rows and brings them on stage to meet them or accept the gift they’ve brought or whatever. Regina [...]

Four For The Price of One (Friday Fun/Saturday Snap/Sappy Sunday/Music Monday)

We were out of town this weekend for Shea’s parents’ 40th Wedding Anniversary so I didn’t get around to blogging as we were pretty busy the whole time. Instead of going back and post-posting (er, is that a word? Backdating posts to keep my “daily post” commitment going anyhow), I thought that, this time I’d [...]

“A Mother’s Prayer” – by Tina Fey

And a father’s prayer too (especially that part about not lying with drummers)…

Last Day of Kindergarten

What’s that word for when you’re feeling an equal mix of happiness and sadness?  That’s what I feel when I look at this photo of Pace waiting for the bus on his last day of kindergarten…   (Okay, mostly happy but a twinge of sad!)

Music Monday – “I can see him right now knees all skinned up/With a magnifying glass trying to melt a Tonka truck/Won’t he be a sight with his football helmet on/That’ll be his first love/Til his first love comes along”

I would’ve sworn I posted this video around Pace’s first day of kindergarten but apparently, I only put it on Facebook. So, instead of a rare re-post of a Music Monday song which I thought it would be, this video gets to be posted for the first time here to celebrate Pace’s kindergarten graduation today. [...]
