OMG I Think I Might Becoming A Vegetarian

By Heather / July 10, 2017

I can’t believe it… but I might becoming a vegetarian. This from a person who has eaten meat all her life. Gets great pleasure in gnawing the bones until they are devoid of any scraps of meat and then pops them into the stock pot to make soup. My dad hunted (and still does) and […]


Surviving The Crowd

By Heather / June 29, 2017

Surviving the crowd is always something that I struggle with and along with that I probably miss out on a lot of grand adventures. For example… we are looking at going to Victoria this weekend for the big July 1st Canada Day bash. It’s a big deal as Canada celebrates their 150 year anniversary and […]


My Favourite Sandwiches Are Called Jeanmakes

By Heather / June 14, 2017

Have you ever had the unshakable feeling that you are right and the rest of the world is wrong? All my life until I was in my teens when mom asked us what kind of sandwich we wanted, often it would be jeanmakes. Any of my friend that grew up around us knew what jeanmakes sandwiches […]


When Good Elastics Go Bad

By Heather / June 8, 2017

When good elastics go bad is one of those metaphor for life. I don’t know if it’s just not wanting change, couldn’t be bothered or feeling like I can make do with what I have that makes these decisions. This came to mind the other day when I was putting an elastic in my hair […]


Letting Yourself Be Loved

By Heather / June 2, 2017

As I’m winding down for the night I’m listening to a song called “Letting Yourself Be Loved” by Lew Epstein. It is one of those songs that is relaxing, thought provoking and makes you take another look at the world around you. Even the title, makes you wonder… how often do we allow ourselves to be loved. […]


Feel The Feelings!

By Heather / May 21, 2017

My ponderings today. Do our feelings become more sophisticated with age or have we just learned to control them to such an extent that we really don’t feel at all? Do we analyse them to death or judge them as good or bad rather than feel the feelings? What would it be like to be […]


Are You Too Stressed To De-Stress?

By Heather / May 8, 2017

Are you too stressed to de-stress? What I mean by that is are you so stressed that you can’t see a de-stressing moment or experience when you come across one. So… what is stress and what are its effects? Well… I’m not going to tell you. If you don’t know already or want more information […]


Where The Wild Faeries Live

By Heather / April 28, 2017

I am going to start with a disclaimer about where the wild faeries live, as my knowing might be a little different than yours. Disclaimer: Wild faeries don’t live in the little faery (fairy) houses that you make or buy and put in the garden. That’s just a pipe dream (sorry to burst your bubble). […]


Easter Trilliums

By Heather / April 13, 2017

Seven little trilliums all lined up in a row Seven little trilliums all wondering where to go All shiny white and new, like a beacon in the dark Only blooming once a year in spring and in the park It’s Easter time the earth proclaims, peace will reign today Trilliums reflect the light that makes […]


Who Do You Trust?

By Heather / April 10, 2017

I was out in the backyard today taking pictures and watching the birds and I began to realise that just like people, each and every bird has their own level of trust. I sit about 15 feet away from the bird feeder and 10 ft from the hummingbird feeder. The hummingbirds will come in close, […]
