The Kominsky Method -- on Netflix -- is pretty hilarious: an 8 part series entirely suitable for aging baby boomers!! Got me laughing for sure. Michael Douglas is superb. Alan Arkin too. And: just watched the initial episode of Dogs docu... Read more
On their way . . .

. . . that's those sheepskin boots! (And, given the Canada Post strike, I'll believe it when I see 'em actually delivered . . . ) I really enjoyed the comments on the self-deprivation blog yesterday. No question, the whole internal battle... Read more
Self-Deprivation!
Friday, November 23, 2018      29 comments

I blog to figure out for myself what I'm thinking and feeling -- and every once in a while, in my burble something sticks in my brain and I keep ON thinking about it. In that recent Sheepish blog about deciding to indulge myself with new s... Read more
Sunshine!!
Thursday, November 22, 2018      22 comments

What a difference it makes, no matter HOW cold (it's -16C right now) , to have bright sunshine and blue skies! My drive to work yesterday was "white knuckle" through white-out conditions with blowing snow and pretty much no visibility: an... Read more
Happy Thanksgiving to All American Sparkies!!
Wednesday, November 21, 2018      23 comments

Thanksgiving is a really big event in the USA (or at least, I experienced it that way some years ago in Austin, Texas). And we Canadians have celebrated last month, in October -- while the harvest was in full swing and the leaves still br... Read more
Commuting and Weight
Tuesday, November 20, 2018      22 comments

For many years I lived in the city and commuted (driving) to a job outside the city. And for many MORE years I lived outside the city and commuted (by bus) into the city when I returned to school. When I was commuting, I put on weight... Read more

Sheepish
Sunday, November 18, 2018      30 comments

Sheepskin slippers? I'm wearing them right now. Yes, they are expensive -- but the ones I received last Christmas replaced a pair at least 8 years old . . . and they are so warm. Necessary in our 1889 house which can be chilly. I also bought ... Read more
Comforting Routine
Saturday, November 17, 2018      31 comments

Yes, it's fun to do special stuff. I do look forward to holidays, to meeting up with friends, to kids coming home . . . of course I do. Sometimes it's even fun to buy special stuff. For example, I've been debating whether I will buy a new pa... Read more
Downy

The snow is downy this morning -- a fresh fall lying lightly on the pines. (A huge ridge, NOT so downy, at the end of the driveway: requiring the at... Read more

You Want It Darker
Wednesday, November 14, 2018      30 comments

I've been listening to this wonderful "last album" song by Leonard Cohen, as we move towards the "darkest evening of the year". You want it darker? Well, maybe not so much what I want as what IS. Especially in November. And there... Read more
Dark dark dark . . .
Tuesday, November 13, 2018      29 comments

Just before 8 am and it's still dark here -- with snow expected. So: I've turned on my "daylight" over my computer . . . for a few minutes of "sunshine". Planning to get out for a recess walk to experience whatever natural light is ... Read more
First Snow Carnations

A bit of a tradition for me . . . white carnations with white pine branches and the white roofs outside the window in honour of the first snow whi... Read more
Lying Low!
Saturday, November 10, 2018      24 comments

Yes yes yes: yesterday went OK (as well as could be expected) and now I'm taking it easy easy easy. Laundering the clothes I was wearing last Saturday at the vet made me cry. But: no regrets at all. It was the right thing to do. ... Read more
