So yesterday I came home to the family after a few days staying with my mom and I described my homecoming with puppy and teenager. Then I asked a question:Continue reading “And the correct answer is…?”
I returned home to the family today (after spending a few days at mom’s) with a car full of groceries.
The puppy went berserk. 😄 Good thing I left the bags in the car at first, since I was getting mauled immediately upon entering. 🙄Continue reading “A perplexing matter to occupy my brain today”
I was trying to explain to Tucker that nothing happens out there.Continue reading “Sunday fluff”
I went to my mom’s this week and stayed a couple of nights (she’s been part of our bubble since the beginning of covid). Today, she took me to a suburban town to a store which imports some goods from Germany. They also have a deli and a bakery where they make prepared food inhouse. For instance, cabbage rolls. (I bought some). 😛
I was excited to go out. I’ve been sitting in either my mom’s house, or my own, typing, purging, cooking or doing other domestic things.
So a trip to a new/different store was exciting! 🙄 For the occasion I even put on actual clothes. Yippie! 😄Continue reading “A day in the life of lockdown Toronto 🇨🇦”
Those of you who have watched Seinfeld through the ’90s will remember the episode where Elaine told Jerry that her date last night ‘took it out’. Jerry was perplexed and kept asking her what he took out. 😄
She tried to explain:
“He took…” she said.
“…it….” she continued.
Anyway, my *episode* on this blog today has to do with a similar topic, only it involves a dog, and not a man or a date. Hah. 🙃

You know those hollow chocolate Santas, they look sort of like this?
There was one like that on the table, but decapitated. The foil was peeled down and the head missing, but whatever.Continue reading “More mess”
They said they’d get it done before Christmas Eve when I asked them yesterday and the day before and the week before that.
It’s Christmas Eve and it’s not done.
Welcome to life with teens. 🙃Continue reading “Christmas Eve gratefulness”
This has been my mantra for so long, I don’t even remember when I first came up with the idea.
One thing is true though: my attempts to keep my life simple (or simpler) are complicated by the fact that I live with a growing family in a small, urban bungalow. Some of these family members are packrats and/or shoppers and/or attached to things for reasons that elude me and this has been a main source of my deteriorating mental health (and sanity) since the day we stepped into this house. Which, ironically, was before the kids arrived, but after the death of a parent and an unhealthy attachment to things like furniture which was neither practical nor fit into this, my (our) small house.Continue reading “Less is more”
I turned on the self clean on my oven last night.
Main reason for this activity in the middle of Christmas cookies baking season?
A chestnut exploded.Continue reading “Family life in lockdown: funky smelling modern conveniences”
