Hope Momma deer didn’t get a “day job”

Early this morning, way earlier than it would be if I was my own boss, I pulled into the parking lot of my day job and there they were – the two baby deer. They did not pay me too much attention. I sat and watched them for a couple of minutes, expecting to see Momma deer but I never did. …Continue reading →

Momma deer is pulling out all the stops

As I drove to work this morning, Friday, August 2, 2013, I pulled up to the stop sign to make my last left turn before I reached the parking lot of my office. There, in the middle of the road, blocking my way to work, was momma deer and not just one of her babies but BOTH of her babies. …Continue reading →

George was a girl

George is not the first pet whose gender we got wrong. We will never forget Jill, my daughters’ first hamster, who hit puberty, grew a set, and then died the next day.

Heads Hung Again

Today, Tuesday, July 30, is much less dreary – weatherly speaking. Momma deer and her baby showed up at lunch to check on me and hung their heads in sadness again (see photo below) as they saw me head into work for another day. Someday soon momma and baby, I will just be here for a visit and some inspiration for …Continue reading →

Yes, I Still Have My Day Job

On this dreary Monday morning, July 29, 2013, as I reached for the cold steel handle of the heavy door I must open to enter my “day job” building, I was greeted by some regular visitors – the momma deer and her baby who was born this spring. I believe their visits are two-fold: to enjoy the abundant leafy greens …Continue reading →

I Cooked!

Those that know me well know that I like cooking about as much as I love spending large amounts of time in the great outdoors (this sentence exudes sarcasm for those that don’t know me well). I am more of a rink girl and much more of a convenient food girl too. My love affair with cheeseburgers goes back to …Continue reading →

Why Did the Duck Cross the Road…

This is what my eldest daughter and I saw while driving past Sullivan’s Pond in Dartmouth today… They actually used the crosswalk! This last duck stopped to take a drink of freshly fallen rain water before stepping onto the sidewalk!

Gag Me With a Yellow Bean

Gag me! I was enjoying a nice bowl of chili for lunch today when I discovered my only food nemesis – the yellow bean! The site of it made my stomach churn. I was almost rendered incapable of swallowing the yellow-beanless bite of chili I had in my mouth. I forced my way through it and savoured the piquant taste. …Continue reading →
