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 […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Mexican Beach Wedding (February 2003)

So, for “family movie night” last weekend, Shea and I decided to hook up the video camera we bought back ~2002 but have rarely used lately (“Hey kids, that big boxy thing is what an iPhone used to look like!”) to show the kids our wedding video from Mexico in 2003. Pace watched about five […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – The Premier of Mexico? (February 2017)

It’s funny how things swirl and combine in unexpected ways. I haven’t written a lot about the ongoing Sask NDP Leadership Race (yet) and I haven’t posted a lot about the Mexican resort we’re planning to go to next February (yet). But, as I think back to the Mexican resort we visited last February, I can’t […]

Saturday Snap – Martha Stewart?

Shea’s channeling her inner Martha Stewart for a Thanksgiving center piece this year (though the fact that our plates appear to be stolen from a 1970’s Chinese restaurant sort of cancels the effect!) 😉

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 – (Over The) Moon Palace, Cancun

Shea, the kids and I are planning to go on a winter holiday with my parents next February. My folks and I went in to talk to the CAA Travel Agent earlier this week (my thought: “People still use travel agents?”  My parents’ thought: “You book all your travel online?”) 😉 Going in, we had […]

“In a word, pleasure. It’s like my pleasure in other people’s leisure.”

 

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk (June 2010)

Sounds like an appealing hiking spot…  

Music Monday – “Put out my lawn chair/Watching the sun arising/Evening comes/I’m watching the sun go down” #saskatchewan #sask #camping #provincialparks #summer #echovalley #fortquappelle

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 […]
