Still chasing for that feeling, was it worth it?

It’s Monday morning as I type this. Another snowy and dark morning here in Edmonton. I’ve been awake since before five am and am sipping a cup of coffee. It’s cold in my condo and I’ve got the fireplace going, listening to acoustic folk music and love songs. The past month has been a whirlwind…

Finding love again after forty. Is it possible in today’s world?

It’s late as I sit down to write this post. It’s been an eventful couple of weeks and I haven’t written much in the blog. That’s being done on purpose. I’ve found that when I post daily, people don’t engage. If I post every few days, I’ll get more interaction. And so, I’m trying to…

Love is a complicated thing – the story of us

I woke up this morning around 9:30 am after a restless night of sleep. It’s a cool day outside, cloudy, with spurts of rain. I’ve already had a disagreement with someone on Twitter when I said, “I hope it rains all weekend.” The smoke is still bad here, and I won’t be able to go…

Movie of the week: Midnight in Paris

I’ve been getting back into watching movies on Netflix and Disney or those that rely heavily on CGI and green screens. It’s really hard to find good movies to watch these days that don’t repeat the same boring plots. And so, I often turn to older movies for entertainment. I’ve been on a classic comedy…

Ask Reddit: How did you lose your best friend?

This was an interesting discussion I stumbled upon while reading Reddit from my bed today. I wound up staying up all last night and passed out around 10 am this morning. I’m not sure if it’s my new bed that’s uncomfortable, or if it’s just me. There was a question in one of the subs…

An ode to my mother on her birthday

It is days like today when I am reminded why I started this blog. At first, it was a way for me to vent and rant about daily life. Then it grew and became a life form of its own with recipes, cooking and fitness tips and pretty much anything I want to write about….

On sabbatical from love

Since no one stepped in and told me to stop- I am still chatting with an ex. I could blame the booze. But I only had one glass of wine last night. So, it’s not that. Maybe it’s COVID and isolation. Being cut off from my usual group of friends and acquaintances. You all know…

Thinky Thoughts: unconventional relationships

It’s quiet in my building tonight. And it’s dark outside – even by 5 pm, it was already pitch black. I had a pretty good day until I started working on my Christmas tree. It’s just a tiny little tree from Michaels. A 4 foot prelit tree. It’s kind of like a Charlie Brown Christmas…
