Thursday Throwdown: October 6, 2022

Next Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving and I’m taking the whole week off for the Autumn SwearyMissMary Shenaniganza Extravaganza! But before that can happen, I have to finish All The Things at work. And then I have to deal with the case of chicken carcasses on my kitchen floor (Mmmm. Future-Soup!) So there needs to be […]

Thursday Throwdown: September 28, 2020

Well, friends, I’m changing the format of Thursday Throwdown a bit – I used to give you 30ish minutes, now I’m going to give you a Top 10. I mean, 30 minutes is a nice, friendly way to tell time – I try to do a Outer Order, Inner Calm thing periodically over the week […]

Thursday Throwdown: All Mary, Full of Beats

Nananananana! You say it’s your birthday? Nananananana! It’s my birthday… erm… on Sunday. So you know the drill, the throwdown before my birthday is all about me!

Thursday Throwdown: September 1, 2022

Helllloooooo, September! September is my favourite month. The weather is friendly in that glorious place between too hot and too cold (whatever too cold even means. Sounds mythical to me.) September acts as a friendlier New Year than the shouty New Year in January. But really, more things start anew in September – school, arts […]

Thursday Throwdown: August 18, 2022

Ragweed is thick in the air right now, which means summer is nearly over. I don’t love the hot, hot, heat, so that doesn’t break my heart – I’m looking forward to the cold-cheeked days of fall and winter. But, there’s something undeniable about what the sun does for you. I’m kind of stuck inside […]
