Hi Everyone! As I write this post, the sun is shining bright and beautiful through my kitchen window and I can’t help but feel that spring (or summer, if I really want to get ahead of myself) is here! The grass is green, the weeds are making their emergence (notice all the lovely dandelion flowers […]

It’s been a long time since I picked up my saxophone and played it. This is in stark contrast to my high school days when I practiced my saxophone every single day. Yes, you heard right, every single day! I went to an arts high school (think of the movie Fame) and was in the instrumental […]

Reality TV – Real, Scripted or A bit of Both?

posted Monday, February 9, 2015

by: in From the Editor

I hate to admit it but I watch The Bachelor. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. How can you watch that show?  Followed by, you know, it’s scripted and not reality TV, right?  I don’t know why I am hooked on the show, it grew on me a couple of seasons ago when I came across it whilst flipping channels, and […]

Happy New Year Everyone! 2014 has come and gone, and we’re already a few days into 2015. I have a few goals in mind — and yes some of them are the typical ones that people make during this time of year — but I figure, a new year is an obvious time to take […]

Camping in December?!?

posted Friday, December 5, 2014

by: in From the Editor

What?? Camping in December? Who camps in December?? Well, there are some people who do camp during the winter months, and some people who I know might like to (for instance, my husband), but that’s just not my thing. And truth be told, I am really not “camping” in December, but it feels pretty close to it. You see, […]

November!

Do you ever feel like the month November creeps up just like that? I find that after summer, there’s “back to school” season, then comes Thanksgiving, then Halloween and before you know it, we’re in November. Besides Remembrance Day which is coming up on the 11th, it appears that November is really the month when we start […]

What Are You Thankful For?

by: in From the Editor

It’s October 1st and Thanksgiving will soon be around the corner. I don’t know about you, but every year in my family, the question, “so what are you thankful for this year?” gets asked.  My usual response is that I am thankful for my family, my husband, my son and yes, even my feisty cat. I am […]

The Summer Exodus

posted Friday, August 29, 2014

by: in From the Editor

Summer is almost over. At least that’s what it feels like whenever Labour Day weekend comes around each year. The mass exodus of cars jam packed on the 401 eastbound into Durham right now confirms this too. But then again, if you live in Durham, you know that every Friday evening (and sometimes Saturday morning) […]

What My Baby Taught Me About Life

posted Thursday, July 31, 2014

by: in From the Editor

A baby can teach you a lot of things. For instance, the other day, I learned the lesson of dealing with circumstances in life that are out of my control. Allow me to elaborate. A baby sleeps, eats, poops and cries when it wants to. Your life revolves around your baby. This means that you […]
