It's January clear out time!

The keyboard in my office is the only thing not covered with loose papers, photos, magazines, file folders, books, pens, staplers, 3-hole punches and every piece of office paraphernalia not previously mentioned! I'm clearing out. When we moved into our house, just over two years ago, every wall in... Sign in to see full entry.

Swan Lake

I've never seen Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake but I can hum along to some of the better known pieces in it. My husband is a Classical music buff but I prefer music with lyrics. He's taught me his stuff and I've taught him mine; it's a good balance. Last night we decided to go to the movies. There were... Sign in to see full entry.

Day 3 of getting-back-to-the-writing-world

I'm not doing such a splendid job at moving back into blogging, or writing in general for that matter. It's been about six months since I submitted anything anywhere! During this dry period I received two acceptances of magazine articles that I'd thrown out there over a year ago, and while I don't... Sign in to see full entry.

Holy wow...3 months since I visited!

Hello everyone and (a belated) Happy New Year! It blows me away that three months have passed since I opened up blogit! 2010 was a busy but wonderful year, and as I turn over yet another new leaf, I pledge (to myself) that I'll visit more often, hopefully even daily, to get back into the blogit...

Pondering Blogit on a Monday morning….

How many of you have blogged on a free website? I often wonder how Blogit stays strong; what is the lure of paying to post blogs? Does it feel more like a commitment, like being married vs. living together? Do you think you’d write more or less if blogit was free? Can a blogging community not... Sign in to see full entry.

Pleasantville?

The weather is glorious. Autumn colours flare against a blue sky and underfoot a blanket of cedar chips make for a comfortable walk through the woods. I begin my hike by circling the man-made lake, banked by wildflowers. I cross a bridge, adorned with boxes of flowers, spilling over the rails and... Sign in to see full entry.

The real thing

When was the last time that feeling of sweet contentment washed over you? It’s that calm, easy, happy sensation that relaxes the very being of you. I had such a feeling this morning. I was out getting a heart monitor hooked up; a couple of electrodes sticky-taped to the chest and stomach and wired... Sign in to see full entry.

“Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans” (Lennon)

I’ve just had an extremely busy four months. During that time we hosted nineteen houseguests, a combination of family and friends, who stayed anywhere from five nights to fifteen nights. I have been home to Ontario three times during this period too, for a wedding, wedding planning and to help my... Sign in to see full entry.

You’re not from around here!

Went to the post office today to mail three birthday parcels to a couple of different spots on the planet and discovered why online shopping and shipping is the way to go. “That’ll be $67.35 please!” the clerk who weighed my packages exclaimed. I gasped. It’s back to online stores for me. “Do you... Sign in to see full entry.

18 months sure fly by!

Hello Blogit bloggers! My word, I can't believe it's been 18 months since I last blogged a blog on blogit! While life has been busy, I continued to miss everyone here! It feels like a homecoming! I have a lot of people to catch up on so I'll just say 'hi' for now and start readin'! Sign in to see full entry.
