  • NaBloPoMo – Day 20 – Echo Day

    Ten months ago, my friend Carolyn tweeted this: To which I replied: And as it turned out, I have not been able to stop thinking about it ALL YEAR. Every month on the 20th, one of us will tweet at the other about this and it has brought me so much joy each and every […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 19 – Horseback Riding

    In my ongoing catching up of blogging about blogworthy things that I totally meant to blog about at the time and then didn’t, I give you horseback riding for Alicia’s birthday! It was way back in the old-timey days of late September, when it was still legal to socialize with people from outside your household. […]

  • Sourdough Starter

    And speaking of pandemic baking, I finally did something that I’ve been meaning to do for ages: make a sourdough starter1! Well, I’m attempting to make a sourdough starter, at least. I won’t know for several days if it worked out or not. I decided to go old school and create it from just flour […]

  • #ExtrovertProblems

    Those of you who know me in person are probably painfully aware that I am an extreme extrovert. So self-isolation and social distancing are quite a challenge for a social butterfly such as myself. But since lives are literally on the line, I am taking the advice of experts who say to stay the hell […]

  • My First Powerlifting Competition

    So that powerlifting competition that I’ve been talking about? That happened today. For the competition, you get three attempts. You have to tell the organizers how much you plan to lift for your first attempt and after you do your first attempt, you decide what you want to do for the next one. If you […]

  • That Time We Totally Made Dinner

    Hot off the heels of our skydiving adventure, Dr. Dan and I decided that we should tackle another thing that is on our list of very important goals: make a meal that we haven’t made before. I mean, he has a goal for 2019 to cook things he hasn’t cooked before. I have a goal […]

  • I jumped out of a f&^*ing plane!

    So yesterday I jumped out of a plane. Because that seems like a reasonable thing for a person who is afraid of heights to do, right? Long time readers may recall that time that I hung off the side of the CN Tower. It was terrifying and I was sure I was going to die […]

  • Summertime!

    OK, so it’s not technically summer until Friday, but you’d never know it from the weather we’ve been having. It’s sunny and warm and the sun is up until nearly 9:30 pm. Things I’m excited about for the summer, in no particular order: The New West Grand Prix – watching professional cyclists ride around and […]

  • What Have I Been Doing for the Past Month – a bulleted list

    So now that I’m done making excuses for my prolonged absence from the blogosphere, here’s a brain dump of all the things I’ve thought “I should blog about that!” in the last month: I did, in fact, have that belated birthday party I talked about having. I decided that since I celebrate Bethmas Eve, Bethmas, […]

  • The answer to the great Question of Life, the Universe and Everything?

    Today I turned the-answer-to-the-great-question-of-life-the-universe-and-everything years old. And to be honest, it’s not so bad. Granted, I only feel like I’m 30 and since it’s scientifically proven that feeling 12 years younger than you actually are means you are cognitively superior, I think I’m doing OK. Also, I’m super freaking strong, as you can see in […]
