Day 57 – Oh to be a Kid Again!

I found one of these at the grocery store on sale for a ridiculously low price the other day and just couldn’t stop myself from buying it. I mean, look at it!   It’s a thing of beauty.  I would have adored having something like this as a kid.  Glitter, metallic, neon, the old standbys… this … Continue reading

Day 56 – Space

As I am married to an Englishman, I am constantly reminded of how lucky we are in Canada to have space.   My husband has commented about how “much sky” there is in the Prairies and thinks that my childhood stories retelling how I used to equate having lots of trees to being rich are cute. … Continue reading

Day 55 – Affirmation

Positive affirmations… how many of us actually say some on a regular basis?  How many of us even think them, for that matter?  Some people say that if you release positive energy into the universe, that it will come back to you.  Some people say that if you vocalise positive thoughts about yourself, that it … Continue reading

Day 54 – Bo-bo

I had a dream come true today. This is going to sound so freakin’ corny, but I’m going to say it anyway.   One of the images I had of myself as a mother was of being able to magically take away my child’s pain.  From the moment I could do it, I kissed my baby’s … Continue reading

Day 50 through 53 – Beautiful but Busy

Woah! Where has the time gone?  So much beauty has passed by and I haven’t had time to write about it all.  So here goes… my last four days of beautiful discoveries. Day 50 – I had a moment when I was at work, when last week’s job-related tasks flashed before my eyes… Meetings with … Continue reading

Day 49 – Beautiful Words

Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering … Continue reading

Day 48 – Pride

Parents are often proud of their kids, sometimes for the simplest things.  I’ll tell anyone who will listen how cute Beatrice is toddling in her winter boots or how Alexandra-Joy can count to ten in both English and French. But how many people are proud of their parents? I am. Are you?

Day 47 – Flexible Jewelry

Stewart created a lovely braided playdough “watch” for A-J tonight. I’m not sure what was more beautiful. The creation itself, watching my husband make something for our daughter or watching her face light up when he put it on her wrist.

Day 46 – “Oh wow.”

I went to have dinner at my parent’s place tonight with my little family.  Both of my parents are heavily involved in a show and haven’t had a chance to see their grandkids much in the past couple of months. It was a lovely evening, but the best part was right before we went home.  … Continue reading

Days 44 and 45 – R&R

My Saturdays always start way too early.  Teaching kids at 9am (after teaching at the university on Fridays at 8:30am no less) is rough.  Even though my little ladies get me up way earlier than that, I’m still of the opinion that one shouldn’t do theatre (or theatre-related things) until at least 10am.  It’s just … Continue reading
