Wallets Have No Friends

Seriously, I don't like politics, but since there is so much shaking and rattling on the political scene - which comprises human beings from all origins - it has its place here. As the title says so well, wallets have no friends. Allies are only allies when the alliance benefits them. When the purpose is… Continue reading Wallets Have No Friends

Baby No More

I have talked about it in the last few posts, but now it is official. My baby is now of age. She turned 18, and it seems she has grown a little bit more independent. Her mind has stepped up a notch. Her life is in front of her and she is starting to make… Continue reading Baby No More

Summer Break – Unexpected

The first week of my vacation is already behind me and I did not see it go by. It has been busy! I have been looking to replace my vehicle for over a year and this week I went for it, albeit unexpectedly. My friend leases her vehicle, and she likes it—how I understand the… Continue reading Summer Break – Unexpected

Do No Harm But Take No…

I am ordinarily a gentle soul that prefers a strife-less environment, patient in most circumstances, and understanding to a fault. I seem to have a harder time of it these last few days. My level of frustration has risen on more than one front, add lack of restful sleep and vacations that are overdue and… Continue reading Do No Harm But Take No…

Did you know AC units only died during heatwaves when all stores in town are sold out? Of course! This Nordic chick here thought she would pass out. I finally survived... not… Continue reading This is Hot Hot Hot!

In less than two months, she will be moving to adult learning. The learning process is different from regular school and… Continue reading School is Out

Worrisome Time

I am not a political person. I follow politics from a distance, never in depth as I have little interest in the matter. However, I have concerns. When a leader creates tensions with allies and friends and make friends with enemies of democracy, I worry. I worry when an authority figure feels the need to… Continue reading Worrisome Time

Another Father’s Day

Do you know what the world needs? Great fatherly figures. Not dictators, chauvinists, authoritarian providers, wife beaters, absent or neglectful fathers, sexual predators, or pedophiles. The world needs to see in action men who are nurturing, caring, considerate, comforting, patient, gentle, and just. It needs to see men who love sacrificially. Children need to know… Continue reading Another Father’s Day

One Prom Night

This week, little Missy has her prom night. I cannot quite believe my youngest has already finished high school! For some parents, their kids' passage from home to kindergarten, from kindergarten to elementary school, and then to high school are disturbing milestones. They were not for me. However, this one is.  In Canada, children turn… Continue reading One Prom Night
