I took my mom to an early morning appointment the other day. When we were done I suggested we go to a nearby mall and have a coffee in the food court.Continue reading “Missing: logic and common sense”
I’m lying in bed with a coffee anticipating my day’s events.
I’ll be mostly out of the house today.Continue reading “Sunday morning in mid-October 🇨🇦”
For days now I noticed a wet spot at the bottom of the vanity, right by the sink.
I thought it was because I dribble and splash when I wash up and kept a towel handy to wipe up the spills.Continue reading “A string of mishaps first thing this morning”
Less than 3 weeks ago my mother fell and broke her femur at the joint of her hip. She was on vacation in Switzerland and required surgery.
About a week ago she returned to Canada where my sister and I looked after her.Continue reading “Drama in the grocery aisles”
I woke up an hour later than usual this morning and I felt it simmering deep in my core.

I’ve been co-parenting my teens while not living at home. It’s been… interesting.
Did you know teens are not chatty? I mean, all this time when I was home with them they stared at their phones, chatted with friends, yada yada… they knew I was there, in the background, ready to pour food into their little gullets, but they didn’t really interact with me too much.

I have a bandaid on my right index finger, right at the tip, which prevents me from using the biometric fingerprint thingy on the back of my phone. I use biometrics to access my locked accounts on my phone.
So this is fun. 🙄
I guess I could take the bandaid off and suffer… 😂
Speaking of suffering, I’ve had trouble with the post office lately. 🤨Continue reading “Chit chat over morning coffee”
The other day I was taking a break from the daily routine and took a walk around a park near a marina. The area is peppered with a few small, non-chain restaurants and bars, but they were relatively quiet since it was a weekday in the middle of the afternoon; happy hour wouldn’t begin for a while.Continue reading “More pandemic reflections while out on a stroll”
Look. I’m fatigued by the subject like most of us are, but I came across a few new tidbits worth sharing now that kids’ activities have opened up.
For instance, arrows.Continue reading “The perplexities of covid restrictions in Toronto (with pictures)”
