Project 365 | Week 11

These beautiful eggs were hand-delivered right to our home by our {in}famous Uncle Garnie (UG) who joined us this weekend for "Paint Fest 2014".  Thanks to UG we painted a bathroom, bedroom and our backdoor/stairwell area in record time!  I love freshening things up for spring! ......................... So, a couple of weeks back I was [...]

Project 365 | Week 10

Because I have a few heavy deadlines this week AND because my camera battery is dead and charging, Project 365 | Week 10 will be published Wednesday morning, instead of Monday.  If you've been excitedly awaiting this instalment, I am both sorry to keep you waiting and happy that you look forward catching up week [...]

Project 365 | Week 9

Balance. I haven't found it, but I'd like to.  This week I was told my time management skills are in need of some polishing.  I don't disagree.  I am aware that I work toeing the deadline - fine, I procrasinate - and it doesn't make life easy.  I've realized that I'd like a little more [...]

Project 365 | Week 8

This week marked an important milestone in the Little One's life.  She finally lost her first tooth!  Unfortunately for her, the only proof she had was the gaping hole in her mouth.  She swallowed her tooth along with the mouthful of granola bar she had been chewing at the time!  Fortunately, the Tooth Fairy accepted [...]

Project 365 | Week 7

With only three of us in the house this week, our pace was both slower and --->FASTER.  In the past I've always looked forward to time alone with the kids, but...then again the last time I was alone with the kids and working on my own school stuff  was probably four years ago aaaand things [...]

Project 365 | Week 6

    So, it's still cold.  🙂  Not that I'm surprised, but this year Mother Nature keeps messing with our minds.  Friday the weather was a balmy -15 degrees Celcius and you could feel the sun's heat on your face, but this morning the temperature dipped again to -31 (feeling like -43) when we were [...]

Project 365 | Week 5

Wow!  I can't believe January has passed and we're now into February.  Weather-wise nothing has changed.  It's still cold and snowy here. This is what my week consisted of: Lots of studying!  But, with the cold weather, I'm glad I can curl up with a hot cup of tea, a snuggly blanket and a book [...]

Project 365 | Week 4

This week marked a big change in my family's life. Rewind to December 15, 2013: We were celebrating my daughter's sixth birthday.  We had a party with her friends from school in the early afternoon and then invited family over for dinner later that evening.  After the last guests left, and the children were in [...]

Project 365 | Week 3

19 days and counting.  This is week 3 of my 365 project and I feel very proud that I haven't missed a single day so far.  (Although to be honest I have been close a couple of times!)  So far 19 days, 19 shots.  This week was....busy.  But that's not different from any other week around [...]

Project 365 | Week 2

I shoot up in bed, right side of my face coated in a thin film of sticky drool and fumble my half-numb arm in the direction of the screeching sound that has awakened me.  "Hullo?" ... "Hello.  This is the Interlake School Division...."  I listen for about twenty seconds and hang up.  School's cancelled due [...]
