Tales from the Bush in Quebec
Catching up on your writings this morning and it seems that Thanksgiving was enjoyed by many, a delight to read. In Canada, where we celebrate it in October, the holiday is not so regarded, except by my little mom, may she rest in peace. I believe she is the only Canadian I knew for whom...

And...for the first time ever in my life, I “flunked” an exam. Twice! A week before writing it, I pulled my back badly. I was on daily pain killers; it was impossible to stand straight, to sit for more than a few moments, and forget sleeping. There was no delaying it, however, so I sat for 3 hours...

This is it. The last part exam was sent in on Thursday (there were up to 4 quizzes per week and a part exam each month) and in 2 weeks to the day I’ll be writing the dreaded final exam which, hopefully, will end my year of tortuous study. The cool thing is that we will be setup with cameras and... Sign in to see full entry.
I am sitting here in the middle of the night reading your posts and I had to write this short note to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the giggles, for the information, the insight, and for just the clean(except maybe CCT's poem - still giggling on that one), uncomplicated...

Oh my – the last time I posted was in March, nearly 3 months ago!! I do come into Blogit and read, take a few moments to comment here and there when I can but, at the risk of repeating myself, this course I am taking is arduous and consumes any energy left over from the job. I am really looking... Sign in to see full entry.
It started to snow yesterday around 3 PM, and it looks like an accumulation of 8 inches or so already, and continues falling – those big, fluffy flakes giving us another splendid winter-wonderland view. Karen, although SHE has been doing the shoveling, remarked more than once how lovely the whole... Sign in to see full entry.
Here we are, Monday again. I had some catch-up work to do on Saturday, so it feels like the weekend was too short. It was filled with hockey games and basketball games and some reading and cooking, the eternal studying, then housework and sleep, although there was not enough done of the last two to...

Good morning Folks. Just a short post to tell you that we are well and under oodles of snow in our bush. I have a tough, like really tough, exam to do this week and I am stuck in my books –UGH – so not able to get out and enjoy it. It is my Japanese DIL’s birthday today, so they will be joined by my...

It is very early AM (3:15, to be exact) and of course I am up, sitting by the kitchen window admiring the stillness of the night, the little pools of outdoor lights chasing shadows on the abundance of snow out there. I rekindled the fire as the coffee machine did its thing, and the beasts, who... Sign in to see full entry.
So today will be the first day in over 2 weeks that I will venture out of the house...if I decide to go that is. I certainly don’t feel like it. Even if I had another good, long sleep last night and am in top shape, the need for company or visiting just isn’t on my wish list at the moment. Maybe I... Sign in to see full entry.
