A Universal Issue

Today is International Women's Day. A celebration of us, the women before us and the young women born after us and who hopefully are one day equals in the eyes of the world. We have come so far, yet many women among us continue to struggle and fight for freedom and equality. Simple things. All... Continue Reading →

Addendum to Last Post

Hubby and I just hopped in the truck to go see our son, Alex (RaggedIslandRoosters.com), play at a bar in Lockeport. I was in the driver's seat and, I kid you not, the truck would not start. It was just like the car acted last Thursday! Both of us sat there and laughed incredulously. How... Continue Reading →

Some Good News

Some days you're just s'posed to sit back and let life take you for a ride. This was the case last Thursday. I had my 3-month appointment at the Kidney Clinic at Yarmouth Hospital. A day trip like that usually involves a few errands. I also had my girl, Pippa, with me so we were... Continue Reading →

Enjoy Today

I took the Christmas tree down today, so it seemed fitting to write my first blog post of 2018. It has been hard for me to sit down and write in the last month or so; not because I have been so busy, but because I just haven't been able to put into words all... Continue Reading →

About Those Little Pills

Few things make me feel older than this pill contraption thingy. I mean...look at it! It's about the size of a small laptop! I used to have a pill box that would fit in the palm of my hand. But that was before... I've been on medication for quite a few years, mostly due to... Continue Reading →

That Christmas Feeling

Do you get it? That Christmas Feeling? Way before the Christmas season? It happens to me every year. I'll be going about my business doing whatever - work, grocery shopping, driving somewhere, doing laundry or dishes - and you just feel it. That¬†Christmas Feeling will come over you out of nowhere and warm your heart... Continue Reading →

Encapsulated…kidney?

This morning, as I was in the midst of getting ready to leave for work, I heard the words "encapsulated placenta" emit from the radio. It was CBC's The Current* with Anna Maria Tremonti, and she was talking to a young woman about the process of encapsulating a placenta into pill form for the mother... Continue Reading →
