Crick the Medical Mystery Cat

When last I blogged about Crick’s health situation, we were waiting for our visit with the cat internist to try to figure out why her runny nose was getting worse. We ended up getting a scan of her head that showed the tissue in her nose was thickened, so a biopsy was taken for suspected […] →Read more

2021 (a.k.a. 4719) Starts Now

Just over a year ago, I called out 2020 for being sucky – and we all know how that turned out. There were high hopes that Jan 1, 2021 would bring an end to the suckiness, but we all know that didn’t quite go as planned. I mentioned the other day that I think the […] →Read more

Nine Years

A year ago today I was watching the Leafs play the Habs and thinking about how it had been eight years since my dad had his last conscious thought. Today I’m getting ready to watch the Leafs play the Canucks and thinking about how it can possibly be that it’s been nine years since I […] →Read more

My New Garmin Fitness Tracker

Two Boxing Days ago, I bought myself a Fitbit. I really enjoyed having it for the first year – it tracked my steps, my sleep, my heart rate. So much data to play with! It gave me notifications if I got a text or a phone call, which was super handy since I usually have […] →Read more

My Pandemic Birthday

I actually had a birthday party in 2020. As unbelievable the idea of having dozens and dozens of people crammed into my 700 sq ft condo (sharing food and having drinks no less!) sounds right now, it is a thing I did, because my birthday is so early in the year. At that time, it […] →Read more

Goals for 2021

Here it is more than halfway through January and I haven’t posted any goals for 2021! Honestly, given how unpredictable last year turned out to be, I’ve a little hesitant to set goals for this year. Who knows what the year will bring? So I’ve decided to scale back on my usual large number of […] →Read more

2020 Wrap Up

I was intending to write this posting, along with the other two I posted earlier today, last evening after I finished watching the World Juniors Canada vs. Finland game on Zoom with my friends, Cath and Mel. Except that we had so much fun watching that game that we continued on Zoom to watch the […] →Read more

Goals for 2020 – The Final Check In

Let’s see how I did on my goals for 2020, remembering that the only meaningful goal for 2020 end up being to survive. Anything beyond that is gravy! The ones I accomplished! I’ve KonMari’ed all the bathroom stuff (including toiletries, make-up, and towels). I’ve KonMari’ed all the kitchen stuff.  6. I’ve made 20 new foods and/or beverages that I’ve […] →Read more

Goal Crushed: Made 60+ New Foods/Drinks in 2020

Given that cooking was a common pandemic activity, I completely crushed my goal of making 20 foods or drinks that I had never made before. Instead of just 20, I made 62 new foods/drinks this year! Because of this, this blog post is ridiculously long (I’ve been working on it for a week!). You may […] →Read more

All The Books I Read in 2020

My goal for 2020 was to read 20 books. I didn’t managed to do that, but it’s 2020 so all bets are off. I read 15 books and I am entirely fine with that. Also, although I read fewer books this year than last year (I read 20 in 2019), I read more pages (4,069 […] →Read more
