I Wonder…

  I wonder...       if the sun debates some mornings   not wanting to get
 out of bed 
   if the sky grows tired
 of being everywhere at once
       if the clouds desperately   try to hold themselves together
       if rain is scared
 of falling and has trouble letting go   if snowflakes get tired of being perfect and
 one-of-a-kind       if stars wish 
upon themselves before they die

Ontario small businesses targetted for destruction by the Ford government...it's time to fight back

Ontario restaurants, gyms, fitness centres and select other privately owned small businesses are once again in the cross hairs of Ontario's Doug Ford government.  After selling the useless vaccines as "our ticket back to normal" it's obvious it's Covid business as Covid normal, with the entrepeneural sector slated for extermination.Remember Adam Skelly from 2020?  Maybe you didn't like his style, perhaps you think he was disregarding public health.  Adam and many others simply understood what is...

Big

I was told that the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, Texas, had really good Christmas decorations. I was a bit disappointed when I got there. I should have gone at night so the lights had impact. It is an enormous place and required a lot of walking. It was kind of like Disneyland and was packed with families. When I went to leave they wanted $20 for parking!

Books Read in 2021

After trying to get back into reading books regularly in 2019 by giving myself goals, I’m so happy that for 2021 I was able to reach my goal of reading 20 books. In 2019 I was overly ambitions and had set a goal of 24, only reading 11, and then it got better in 2020 with a goal of 18 and reaching 16. But more than just reaching that goal, what I’m especially happy about is that I feel like reading books as finally turned into a routine, not something I’m doing to accomplish a goal. I used t...

not a resolution part two: habit tracking and 85% thinking

Habits -- or the lack of habits -- that we could get away with in our 20s become more difficult in our 30s, barely possible in our 40s, and downright self-destructive in our 50s and beyond.Like many people, as I've gotten older, I've been more motivated to take better care of myself -- physically and mentally. To that end, I have found two indispensable tools: habit tracking, and something...

New Year's Tart

I made the first tarte aux pommes (apple tart) of the year yesterday. I used applesauce that I made from our own apples back in 2020 (and frozen) as the base, with store-bought reine des reinettes (queen of the pippins) on top. It was pretty tasty, if I do say so myself. Tarte aux pommes, New Year's Day 2022. Now it's time to start thinking about making pâte feuilletée (flaky pastry) for the traditional galette des rois (kings' cake) next week. The cake, more of a pastry than a cake, is tradit...
