Tales from the Bush in Quebec

Saturday, November 1, 2014


I just slept 12 hours!! Granted I got out of bed a couple of times, mostly because Grump came into the bedroom and wandered around, his nails clicking on the floor, and I thought ‘It’s time to get up now’, but I wasn’t up more than 30 minutes and I couldn’t focus or move around and I needed to go...

I returned to the office, my first morning back. The HR ladies told me we were going to lunch – it was a Salad Sensations Bar and the food and conversation both much enjoyed, and my desk was moved the same afternoon. Was this lady happy?? Even more delightful was that the girls, one after the other,... Sign in to see full entry.

Answering Justi, I commented on her post that I actually WAS on vacation at the moment – but I am using the term lightly. It has been very much like an ordinary work week except for not travelling to and from the office, and I didn’t have to get dressed first thing in the morning. However I am set...

I like this time of year; so much to smell. The little creatures out there are scurrying around trying to hide from the cold, so they’re not really paying attention and it’s much easier to get closer and boy! Their faces when they realize I’m right behind them! I give a bark or two to show I mean... Sign in to see full entry.

For some reason most modern offices have the employees shut away. One sits there from 4 to 6 consecutive hours under artificial light, without birdsong or a gust of breeze, sharing germs that float around in the air conditioning. I am actually luckier than many because my desk is beside a part of... Sign in to see full entry.

G Grump and Bandit Weather-wise, this is what I call a perfect day; sunny, with a few white dragons or rolling bears or little rivers, or whatever shape one wants to see in a cloud floating up there; warm enough to wear just a sweater, but not so hot as to constantly seek shade. It did, of course,... Sign in to see full entry.

The weather is being kind to me. On more than one weekend I have made plans to clean up my home office, to catch up on work to be done for some former clients, then out comes Mrs. Sunshine and....well, how can one stay indoors? No so today! It’s rainy and gray...or grey...and my determination to... Sign in to see full entry.

My, my – already Labor Day weekend. Time is wearing running shoes, and is racing along with total disregard for those (like me) who are trying to catch up. Make every minute count, they say. Right, but by the time I find that minute it’s already waving goodbye. I shake my head in confusion and watch... Sign in to see full entry.

The worst case of insomnia I have had in years, with an average of 3 hours sleep per day...UGH! By the time my Rug rats showed up for their weekend stay, I was a walking zombie. Fortunately they are older now, and were kept amused by Grump and Toolie, the new cat. Bandit peeked around the corner of... Sign in to see full entry.

To Toolie - doesn't he remind us of Kabu & WIley's Mr. Graysome? We took a walk in the rain tonight. It wasn’t much of a ‘rain’ – only a fairy drizzle – warm, soft and absolutely enjoyable for Grump and me. Toolie strolled along with us – Toolie is the stray Tom who lives on my gallery, but who will... Sign in to see full entry.
