Thursday Throwdown: June 8, 2023

Yah, I know… it’s Friday, again. Apparently to publish things, you have to actually press Publish. *sigh*. I’m seriously thinking that I should just rename the Thursday Throwdown to something else… like The Stombo Show‘s Magnificent 7, and then my cavalier attitude about the day of the week doesn’t matter. And while Strombo ain’t a […]

Grati-Tuesday June 6, 2023

A fortnight ago, my gentleman associate and I finally (FINALLY!) finished building our patio project. It started in 2020 when everything shut down for Covid.

Thursday Throwdown: May 25, 2023

At work, on our Slack App, we have a Music channel where someone throws out a theme, and all the members of the channel pile on. It’s pretty great to get amazing new recommendations.

Every single time, though, I was procrastinating doing something else. And moving all your worldly possessions was a doozie of […]

And then I realized that not only was I superduper late for Grati-Tuesday, I was also late for Thursday Throwdown (this being almost 2am on Friday, and all). Oopsie. The beginning of this week was the Family Day statutory holiday for me, so […]

Lent Project 2023: Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is one of my favourite days in the liturgical calendar. As RC kids, we don’t have an outward sign of our faith in the same way as hijabs, niqabs, dastārs, kippahs, and  turbans announce the faith of other religions. But on Ash Wednesday, we declare our faith with a smudge of ash on […]
