  • 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. […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 18 – Noom

    First off, I’d just like to say that this isn’t a sponsored post or anything. I just like this app and wanted to blog about it. Back in the early pandemic (circa March to June), I gained some weight, thanks to losing all my physical activity (hockey suspended, gym shut down, daily minimum of 7,500 […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 17 – The Quay

    A few days ago I blogged about Pier Park. Since I can’t go there right now, when I go out for a walk, it’s typically along the New Westminster Quay. Today I went out for a walk after work but before the night class that I teach on Tuesdays. And I ended up out there […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 15 – New Foods I Made This Year #4 to #9

    As previously mentioned, I had a birthday party back in the Before Times. I was recovering from my food poisoning, so I mostly made foods that weren’t too taxing, which meant I made fewer new-to-me recipes than I typically would for a party. But I did manage two new recipes: cheesecake stuffed cupcakes rum punch […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 14 – Hot Buttered Rum

    I made another new thing that I’ve never made before: hot buttered rum. It’s pretty easy – you muddle together butter and spices, then add rum and hot water. It just tastes like warm spiced rum, with a bit of creaminess from the butter. It’s good, but I’d prefer just having some eggnog with rum, […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day #11 – Remembrance Day

    Taking a moment to remember those who fought, those who were injured (physically, emotionally, and mentally), and those who died, so we could have a chance at peace. Image source: Poppies photo posted on Flickr by Hennasabel with a Creative Commons license.

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 10 – New Foods I Made This Year #2 and #3

    The next two foods that I made in 2020, that I’d never made before, were: a pistachio-walnut coffeecake a gluten-free coffeecake The former was from a recipe that my mom gave me – she’d made it at Christmas and it was so delicious, I had to make some to bring to my office. This was […]
