Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

On Tuesday of course. I thought I had better drop by and post something, my slacking is immense. But the good news is that I have three finals left at school and then I am done!!! I have exactly three days off after my last exam and then I am back to work, after that […]

The Beach...

The Beach…

She sits with her bare toes in the cool, coarse sand. Closing her eyes she breaths in the fresh ocean air. It’s been a very long time since that peace has been felt, the grounding and connection avoided in the speed of life and living in time. Since childhood it has been part of life, […]

Through the laughter and the tears...

Through the laughter and the tears…

My brother and sister-in-law blessed the world with a Baby Prince yesterday, he is healthy and beautiful…a Wee brother to the Wee prince. As I was gushing over the beautiful pictures they sent me, I started thinking about everything they have yet to live through, having such a young family. The laughter…you know, that baby […]

iTunes...I think I love you...

iTunes…I think I love you…

I have resisted the Apple phenomenon as long as I could, I am possibly one of about 100 people in the Universe that doesn’t own an iPhone, and at this point I don’t see that coming. On that note, I do adore my mini iPad, and once I opened that door, it was like a […]

When blogging flies out the damn window...

When blogging flies out the damn window…

As it will for me, when I have more things to do than three people should ever even try to attempt. Some days I think someone should not only just think about giving me a good swift smack upside the head, but should actually really do it. What is wrong with you people? So let […]

The Pinterest Debate...

The Pinterest Debate…

It has been brought to my attention more than once in the last week, that Pinterest and the copyright conundrum connected to it, is indeed making people uncomfortable. I have talked to people that have actually taken down the boards they have up that don’t contain their own images. Now…once I get past the part […]

The freedom to change...

The freedom to change…

I had a girl day this week…it was good. It was long overdue for me to have some quality girl time, with quality girls :) I had two separate visits with two different friends, but the conversations were so spookily the same, it’s funny how we all find ourselves in the same places in life […]

Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

I had to finish a project for school this week, or mostly finish it, the assignment  involves taking pictures of things that are random and making the alphabet out of them… It’s been fun and I am nearly finished, I will post it when I am…but this week, was an excellent bird shot week. Here […]

Sometimes you have to lose stuff...

Sometimes you have to lose stuff…

I have just recovered from reading break, which was not a break at ALL. It is just a free for all in teacherville, where they conspire to load up the homework to the point that you think you may just have a nervous breakdown during your pretend week off. Well I fooled them. We went […]

The End Of An Era...

The End Of An Era…

As my brother so eloquently posted on facebook today concerning the fact that I have indeed…just sold my 67 Mustang. I did it. I am still a little amazed that I have done it. I can honestly say back in the day, when I first bought her, I never thought the day would come when […]

Out With The Old...

Out With The Old…

And in with the new…right? This week has definitely been a whirlwind for me. There have been many changes in our lives over the last few weeks, some I will share, some I won’t. Just know it is all for the awesome!! At the beginning of the week, something possessed me to relist my Mustang […]

Sunday Shots...

Sunday Shots…

This week we got a beautiful load of wood, and I got a few cool shots…the weather here has just been amazing, even though we are expecting snow tonight!! This is one of many elk prints that were where we were getting wood, it was really sandy and there were hundreds of hoof prints in […]

Weekly Photo Challenge~Selfie

Weekly Photo Challenge~Selfie

Well I have been totally neglecting my photo challenges as well as Sunday Shots, so tonight I have decided to do both!! First I am posting the selfie challenge… I took this picture when we were woodhunting, back when I had long hair…which I must add, I totally regret cutting off. But that is neither […]

It's like coming home...

It’s like coming home…

I have decided to take the night off from homework. I shouldn’t, but I am going to. I should be doing JavaScript. Nuff said. Today in Social Media class we were talking about blogging, and why people do it. There are many reasons as you all know, some do it for money, some do it […]

And yes...this post is NOT about football...

And yes…this post is NOT about football…

Because I will be totally honest with you here, I. just. don’t. care. Don’t throw your chicken wings and nachos at me, it won’t matter. I have never been, nor will ever be interested in football, hell this year hockey can’t even keep my interest. So instead of doing what the entire rest of North […]

The incredible cruelty our society exudes...

The incredible cruelty our society exudes…

Never ceases to amaze me. I am no Justin Bieber fan. Obviously. But the amount of rage aimed at this boy right now, is somewhat staggering. How does a young boy (he is the same age as my youngest son) deserve that much hatred aimed at him? I mean seriously, step back from the shitty […]

Google Me Baby...

Google Me Baby…

In my Social Media class, we are branding ourselves. Not the kind of branding that would first occur to me…this is Personal Branding. A kind of branding that requires not misbehaving. And building a name for yourself online. A name for your business. Uh oh….because I am like everywhere as The Redneck Princess, but I […]

Blinded by the light....

Blinded by the light….

You know the song, right? I loved that song. I have no clue why I felt the need to say that out loud. It’s been a weird week. Things feel all discombobulated. I couldn’t focus…on anything. If I wasn’t flitting around from one trivial task to another, I was trying to make an accurate self […]

Where the hell am I?

Where the hell am I?

I am certainly not blogging. Like ever, apparently. Not sure what the hell is up with that. I haven’t really been doing much else either really, which I suppose could be why I have absolutely nothing productive to say. We went wood hunting a few times, I got a third of the pictures I usually […]

Another year bites it...

Another year bites it…

It’s almost over…it’s that bittersweet week between Christmas and New Years, when you know you should stop eating pastry and chocolates, maybe scale down a bit on the drinking and think about getting back to something that resembles normal. As you think that, you are actually putting one more shortbread in your mouth. I mean […]

Is there ever too much love???

Is there ever too much love???

I think not… As I lay here in the dark, alone (well not alone, but Bruce is snoring beside me) with my crazy girl thoughts…it occurs to me, for not the first time this holiday season, how blessed my life is. I need to remember that on the not so great days. It is December […]

Duck Dynasty...really people? Don't you have even a little bit of humility?

Duck Dynasty…really people? Don’t you have even a little bit of humility?

I have quietly listened for days now. I have tried to filter, to not have an opinion…or at least not say it out loud. Today I hit the point of being done. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? And by you people I mean anyone that gives a SHIT what this guy has […]

How to seed a pomegranate...llive

How to seed a Pomegranate…live!

  Okay, I did it. I made the video. I actually made two videos, but this is the only one you get to see :) This is the easiest thing ever. You will thank me. I promise. And tomorrow, we post drink recipes, because now you are going to have an overabundance of delicious seeds […]

Excuse my not following through

Excuse my not following through…

This week, I had big plans to do a Pomegranate week on the blog, you know delicious recipes…and easy how  to empty a pomegranate video and more delicious recipes. So far. I have nothing. Nothing I tell you. I just haven’t felt confidant or reliable enough to actually make the video. I found one online […]

Two years ago today...

Two years ago today…

You called me. I answered the phone, never expecting to hear the words you said to me. Two years ago today, life changed on every level. Everything we ever believed in came thundering down around us, as we tried to fathom how to possibly go on after such a loss. My heart still breaks for […]

Homemade Sausage Rolls

Homemade Sausage Rolls…

If you want to get in good with Santa this year, forget about the cookies and leave him some homemade sausage rolls instead. Trust me, he loves these. They are a wee bit time consuming to make, but definitely worth the effort, your family will eat them up! Or at least mine does :) I […]

And I digress...

And I digress…

Back to when I was ten years old as soon as there is snow. And today, we do indeed have snow. Light, fluffy, dry, fun to be out in snow. I was supposed to do more homework than I did this morning,  but I just couldn’t concentrate. Looking out the window and the cold sparkling […]

Stumbling around...but I'm OKAY!!!

Stumbling around…but I’m OKAY!!!

You know that commercial where the chick falls down and then gets back up again really quick like nothing actually happened? Ya, that’s how I feel this week. In a comical insane laughing fit kind of way. To say that we are burning out is an understatement. BUT. We are nearly done for the semester. […]

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa…

I just wanted to write you a short note. I don’t know if I qualify for the nice list or not this year, I just want to be clear on the parameters. So the part where you better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout… Does that mean like ever? I mean […]

I feel the need to apologize...

I feel the need to apologize…

To all of you, everywhere in the world, who may have heard the story of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. It is beyond me, how someone who openly admits doing crack, drinking and driving, hanging out with prostitutes (though he swears she is just a friend) and then has an outburst on live tv about one […]
