Making applesauce in the throes of Christmas prep maybe isn’t the wisest use of my time – there must be eleventy thousand other things I could/should be doing, right??
It would be easy to become morose with the things that aren’t going to (or can’t) happen this year. But you know, if I focus on the things I don’t get to have, I won’t focus on the things I do.
Last winter I was not in a good headspace. I didn’t do well with the Remembrance Project last year, and the Advent project came hot on it’s heels and I just didn’t feel like I had the introspection chops, so I just didn’t even start the Advent project. Little did I know what was just […]
At the beginning of September, I wrote a post about my experience with epilepsy (What the Seizures Stole). Well, I got the report and the good news is that the tests are all clear. The kicker is that’s also the bad news. There’s nothing to indicate why I had those seizures, nothing new to add […]
From moonlight to stellar light to candle light, may we find the guidance we need on this holy night.
When we lived in the Ottawa Valley our street was dark. No really. No-streetlights-for-miles kind of dark. I used to like being outside on dark nights when you could see the whole of the Milky Way.

Happy Yule, all! At solstice, nature switches direction. The longest night is behind us, and we add a few minutes of sun to each day. I prefer moon salutations to the sunny variety, and the cool, quiet, silver of night to the raucous glaring gold of day. But that also makes it easy to get […]
Yeah, I’m behind again. This post is Friday’s effort. This is what happens when I’m on yay!cation. I get to 10 at night or so, and go “Nope, I don’t wanna sit at the laptop today”. So everyone get their Hermione Granger Time Turner out. 6 spins should do it (she says like she’s read […]
I love Christmas trees. I’ve been watching my neighbours’ Christmas tree in their window for a few days. There are two strings of lights that flash and different frequencies and a few that are always on. I can’t see ornaments (because that’d be creepy), but I’ve been watching. Yesterday, Mike and Connor put the lights […]
