Saturday Snap – Tobogganing

Enjoyed a day off last Monday by taking the kids tobogganing…

Saturday Snap – Good Knight

Sasha was playing in the “tickle trunk” we keep of various costumes and other dress-up clothes…

Happy Halloween!

A few random thoughts… Shower thought: It struck me that Halloween was the original version of “Pokemon Go!” with kids roaming the streets, checking in at various locations and randomly encountering all kinds of strange and wonderful creatures. Weird to realise how many people will pass by our house, even though we have the lights […]

10 Random Thoughts After Attending One Night and One Day of #skndpldr Convention #skpoli

I’ve only written a couple things about the current Sask NDP leadership race since the last race ended in 2013. But since Shea and I went to Ryan Meili’s hospitality suite on Friday night (where a few people stroked my ego by asking if I’d be blogging about the race this time) and we also went […]

I’ve finally had time to go through all the pictures (2000+!) that I took over the course of the entire summer and winnow them down to a handful of favourites. That’s still more than most people should have to sit through at a single sitting so what I did was create a long slideshow with […]

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 […]
