Bacon — it’s what’s for dinner!

I love bacon in all its incarnations — maple bacon, 50% less salt bacon (which, ironically, tastes saltier), regular bacon cooked when we’re camping, eggs fried in bacon fat, and so on.

Cameron bought her ABBA Singstar, so we tried a...

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Merry Christmas! It’s finally here. All the shopping, the fretting, the making of lists, the creating of gifts — it all comes down to this…it’s C-Day. Like little kids, Raymond and I have been up since about 4:30 waiting to see what Santa delivered under the tree. We’re quietly drinking our tea, waiting patiently for...

I have no idea how I feel about this…

It’s Christmas Eve and all through the house, I can’t stop being horrified and fascinated by the art of creative poodle grooming. I found a link on one of my favourite blogs — The Park Bench (for us geek girls) — and I have just spent the last half hour of my life looking at...

Sewing for the freakin’ blizzard!

It’s cold outside. Not just normal cold, but blizzardy cold.

SCIENCE! Ach, I’m blind!

Well, I’ve had to cancel craft group tonight. My horrible snow driving aside, I didn’t like the idea of people walking to the group in these horrible winds or driving in the icy conditions, so I’ve shut it down for the night. We’ll make up for it by scheduling something in January. E-mail me so...
