  • Goals for 2021 – The Final Report

    Since 2020 was a dumpster fire and there was no end in sight, I decided to set modest goals for 2021, because really, how can anyone plan anything amidst an ever changing pandemic? And it was probably a good thing I did because there were enough simultaneous apocalypses, what with the heat domes and floods […]

  • Last week was quite the week.

    Floods Massive flooding in BC has had devastating effects on the province. Some places got a month’s worth of rain in the space of 2 days – and southern BC is a rainy place during this time of year, so a month’s worth of rain here is a lot. Massive mudslides and flooding cut off […]

  • Belated Halloween Posting

    I have been quite remiss about blogging lately! I remember in October thinking “I should do NaBloMoPo1 again and then somehow it’s halfway through November and I hadn’t posted2. But once I got on my blog to write a posting for my mom’s birthday, that got me thinking that I really should do a posting […]

  • Slightly Past Halfway Through The Year Check-In On My Goals

    So I only set 4 goals for this year, because trying to make any kind of plans beyond basic things like eating food and reading books back in January, when vaccines were just starting to roll out and everything was still so unknown, seemed like a fool’s errand. So let’s see how I’ve been doing […]

  • Light at the end of the tunnel

    I can eat indoors at a restaurant with friends. My hockey league has re-started for a summer season. We’re allowed to travel to other regions within the province again – so are planning our usual trip to Kelowna for the August long weekend. My office is working on a plan to get us all working […]

  • Pfizer – It’s Not Just For Boner Pills Anymore!

    Vaccines are a freaking modern miracle. Before we had vaccines, everyone just had to run the risk of catching potentially debilitating/fatal diseases and hope they didn’t catch them, and if they did catch them, hope they weren’t debilitated or killed by it. We are so lucky that we have safe and effective vaccines against so […]

  • Pandemiciversary

    Happy “office covidversary” and “happy anniversary of the last party ever!!!!!” are two texts that I received this week that that would have been very confusing about 13 months ago. Similarly, I watched Hockey Night in Canada and the commentators were discussing vaccine effectiveness during the second period intermission of the Leafs-Jets game. Not something […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
