Update: A couple weeks ago (here), I let you in on my goal to completely catch up on the show Once Upon a Time before the season 3 premiere which was yesterday (September 29). After my update post last week (here) in which I was on track to meeting my goal, I pretty much fell… Continue reading Once Upon a Time Catching Up – Part 2
I had hoped to post my first book review today but, as of writing this post, I haven’t finished either of the books I was planning to review. I should be able to finish one of them by Friday, but since I have a few other things going on this week, and I don’t want… Continue reading Experimenting with Graphic Novels
I’ve just finished watching Season 1 of Once Upon a Time. Actually, since I’m writing this Monday evening and you won’t be reading it until Wednesday, I’m probably also part way through Season 2, but I digress. I thought since I told you about my plan to catch up (here) before the premier of Season… Continue reading Once Upon a Time Catching Up – Part 1
Rainy days can be a disappointment. They can cancel beach days, barbecues and other outdoor plans. They can keep people inside and hidden. They can make children (and, let’s be real here, some adults) hyper and restless. They can be grey, dreary, and sad. In stories rainy days often are used to set a certain… Continue reading The Thing about Rainy Days
Since I finished my Masters, I have been enjoying the freedom to read for recreation. In addition to being a student no longer, I am also currently unemployed. As a result of the combination of these two factors, I have been making frequent trips to my local library. Don’t get me wrong, I use visit… Continue reading September Library Haul
Summer 2011 (or was it September?) previews started to appear on CTV for a new show. From the moment I saw part of the trailer (I don’t like watching commercials so I initially missed the first half), I was pretty sure it was a show I was going to want to watch. For the next… Continue reading A “New” Favourite TV Show?
It is the middle of September. I am not entirely sure where the beginning of September disappeared to, but here we are. October is just around the corner, and summer is slowly fading to a memory. Though most days are still getting fairly warm (and last week had a couple scorchers!), you can feel the… Continue reading Hello Autumn, Goodbye Summer
I am a reader. I have been for as long as I can remember. I have read good books, bad books and great books. I have a never-ending reading list and yet I continually re-read books. You know that person who trips over her feet because she’s trying to walk and read at the same… Continue reading Introducing: Library Day Friday
I love Hippos. I have for as long as I can remember. We have a picture of Little Me in front of the Hippo habitat at the zoo. Hippos are a bit of a strange animal for a little girl to like. They’re not furry and they don’t really say “Please cuddle me!” But what… Continue reading And Hippopotamuses Like Me Too!
My pre-wakening thoughts this Labour Day morning consisted of deciding whether I wanted Pancakes or French Toast. Since I don't really like pancakes, this was an odd internal debate. The debate abruptly disintegrated when my mom told me the news. Fire had destroyed the main building of the St. Jacob's farmers market. It took me… Continue reading The Change a Night Can Bring
