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 […]? →Read more

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. […]? →Read more

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 […]? →Read more

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 […]? →Read more

I don’t have time to blog about my sourdough journey today, as I have a giant pile of assignments to mark1, so I’m going to skip over a few of the foods I made as part of said journey and tell you about a bunch of other random foods that I made. First up, Moroccan […]? →Read more

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 […]? →Read more

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, […]? →Read more

NaBloPoMo – Day 13 – Pier Park

I saw this story in the newspaper yesterday and it reminded me that I wanted to blog about the fire that burned down half of Pier Park in September. Pier Park is a boardwalk in New Westminster, just a few blocks from my place, which opened in 2012, just before I moved here. The easternmost […]? →Read more

NaBloPoMo – Day 12 – Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy birthday, Mom! While I’m sure that this year’s birthday is not ideal, what with the whole pandemic and all, I hope you still had a great day! →Read more

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. →Read more
