Almost Back...Part III

When I hear or think of New Brunswick in summer, I think of Green. Not just green, but a many-shaded, variegated, sun-dappled Green, which, if it were water, you could lose yourself in and drown, as I did once; if not objectively, finally and irrevocably (I wouldn't be writing this), but certainly...

Almost Back...Part II

I woke to a grey dawn, but the deluge had spent itself, and as I drove further into New Brunswick, the sun finally broke through the clouds. Our maritime provinces, or ‘The Maritimes’, as they are known, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, have a many-hued charm all their own. Much... Sign in to see full entry.

Almost Back...Part I

Top of the morning to all my Blogger friends! I’m back, though mainly in body – my spirit hasn’t quite arrived yet. On top of which there are demands that clamour to be met, including that of a tooth, insisting I made an appointment with my dentist. Usually, half the fun of getting to Halifax is the...

Almost Gone...

Early tomorrow morning I'll be driving down to Halifax (I say 'down' because Ontario is called 'Upper Canada', and some people think it's called that because we're 'uppity', but they're wrong on all counts, as usual, lol.) I may and I may not blog a little while I'm down there. And no wars please... Sign in to see full entry.

Visit with Wiley

I took a little trip up to the Ottawa Valley today, to see Wiley. Well, what can I say about the ole Coyote that everyone doesn’t already know: he’s just a prince of a guy! I can only add one thing: his hospitality has no equal! Of course, I also checked out the new hydro poles. They seem to be put... Sign in to see full entry.

Naut’s Fabulous Cold Summer Soup # 1

Well, summer is almost upon us, which means cold soups. If you don’t like your soup cold, fine, there’s no law against heating it, but to me one of the charms of summer is the refreshing flavour of a cold soup. Some cold soups, such as the old classic, vichyssoise, have to be cooked and then... Sign in to see full entry.

No Exorcism required....Part II

We have a limited understanding of our minds, but it is part of my professional territory to know that a traumatic experience can affect us in strange ways. The thought of getting back on the bike and riding hadn’t bothered me – what I was afraid of was what I might experience when I headed into... Sign in to see full entry.

No Exorcism Required...Part I

Saturday morning, and I am up early. No dawdling in the shower this morning, no languorous lingering over my latte. It promises to be a gorgeous day here in Southern Ontario, and I have an important task ahead of me: an exorcism, possibly. I can’t be sure yet whether it will be required at all. The...

Naut’s Chilled Thai Avocado Soup

Just in time for the approaching joys of spring and summer! My friends often send me recipes, and it’s always much appreciated. The trouble is that when I get around to trying them, I always fiddle with them, so that they end up being different. This, of course, is not a problem for me, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Just in Time for Spring Planting...

I am as receptive to nature’s beauty as the next guy, but I don’t feel the urge to improve on it. If I were in the habit of making OTAesque lists, which tend to have fourteen items, gardening would never appear on any of them, since I can easily think of more than fourteen things I’d rather be doing...
