Italian Adventure

The trip to Italy was amazing. The country is so beautiful, the people so hospitable and the food, the wine!! YUMMY!! For the first three weeks I rented an apartment in Positano on the Amalfi Coast. The huge terrace overlooked the sea so I spent many an hour gazing at the vista. Positano is built... Sign in to see full entry.

Brain fog

For some unknown reason I was wide awake at 4am today. I tossed and turned until 5 then got up, made coffee and started my day. My sis and her hubby arrive from Boston tonight and will stay with me until my Mom's birthday party on Sunday. Trying to nap was like trying to herd cats so after 45... Sign in to see full entry.

Life in the big city

My daughter lives in downtown Toronto and commutes to school everyday on the subway. Imagine her surprise to find a fellow commuter sitting across from her with a 4 foot snake wrapped around his shoulders!! He apparently needed something from his backpack so put his pet on the floor where it... Sign in to see full entry.

Porkis Interruptis

Ahhh, here I had my mouth watering for BBQ and the restaurant was sold out of ribs and pulled pork by 6pm!! There are a few festivals in town so with so many people downtown I guess the owner didn't plan on that many guests. We had a great night anyway eating pub food on the patio but I WANT BBQ, I...

Goin' out for BBQ

Those blogit-ites that aren't familar with Toronto should know that this city isn't in the deep south. We're in the south of Canada but that's as far as the similarity goes. Imagine my joy to find a place that serves (apparently) REAL BBQ! It's a small place with a smoker out the back and the owner... Sign in to see full entry.

Another haunting!

I am not one to be easily spooked but I had another incident at my house that has me wondering if I'm really alone or not! Friday evening I was really tired, "too pooped to participate" as my mother would say. The phone was ringing every few minutes with people selling windows, vent cleaning, and...

Muscles I didn't know I had

In my usual fashion I decided to do ALL the gardening in one day. Dug the beds, hauled in some top soil, trimmed and planted a bunch of new flowers and herbs. Every year I do this and every year I think......are you thick or what?? IT HURTS TO DO THIS ALL IN ONE DAY!! The gardens look great but... Sign in to see full entry.

Remakes of songs for all the Baby Boomers in Blogitland

I had to laugh at these Baby Boomer remakes of songs we all loved Herman's Hermits--- Mrs. Brown, You've got a Lovely Walker. Ringo Starr--- I Get By With a Little Help From Depends. The Bee Gees--- How Can You Mend a Broken Hip? Bobby Darin--- Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash. Roberta Flack---... Sign in to see full entry.

For all my friends in Ontario - courtesy of Jeff Foxworthy

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 " of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food wil swim by, you live in Ontario. If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you live in Ontario. If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time,... Sign in to see full entry.

Did you ever get started on one task and end up with a dozen?

I'm still putting my house back together after having some floors put in so today was the day to re-hang pictures and drapes. Well........that lead to cleaning out cupboards, tossing out 7 bags worth of junk from the laundry room and storage room, re-organizing the office, washing curtains and... Sign in to see full entry.
