I came back from the beach with new resolve that somehow I would get my life organized enough to do the things that feel good to me, like blogging. We were going to make time to swim every day (did it twice) and I would be home cooking dinner more often instead of working (didn't … Continue reading I Can’t Believe It’s Been 4 Weeks…
Not only did my family and I go on vacation, but there was a little stowaway in my bag! None other than the (in)famous Trevor Belmont (a.k.a. Richard Armitage's character in Castlevania). He set himself to guarding the fruit after our initial grocery run. But he soon decided that his awesomeness would look better with … Continue reading Trevor Belmont at the Beach
It's around a 5-hour drive from Vancouver to Osoyoos, and the scenery changes as we move along the road. Osoyoos is Canada's only desert, so as we approach the town, you can see the vegetation start to change. In a bit of a contradiction, though, the area in and around Osoyoos is also known for … Continue reading The Journey to Here
Leaving this (temps are Celsius of course): For this: Didn't leave by 10 o'clock like we'd hoped, more like noon, but we should be at the beach by dinner time. I worked late last night again, trying to get it all done before I left, but in the end I figured that since I'm not … Continue reading Vacation: Here I Come!
So, how do I get myself back into regular blogging? It's not that I don't have any topics... in fact, my backlog of ideas is so long that I don't even know where to start! Overwhelmed by choice! (A bit of a longer post today to hopefully get me back into the rhythm.) But really, … Continue reading This and That
Another man has caught my eyes (and my ears) in a little secondary crush. Same age, same nape curls, same changeable blue eyes, same fondness for stretched out T-shirts. How to tell Richard... how to tell him without hurting his feelings... There's been another man that I've needed and I've loved But that doesn't mean … Continue reading Cheating on Armitage?
Something about the profile, maybe? And maybe a bit about a certain style of jacket? Regardless of the handsomeness factor, I always try to see at least one play each season at the outdoor Bard on the Beach festival. (I posted about the production of Macbeth I saw last season here.) In addition to Shakespeare in Love, … Continue reading Hmm. Why Do I Want to See This Play?
Have you tried Photo Lab? No, this is not an ad, but someone mentioned this free app and now I have all these ridiculous Richard creations saved on my phone! Well, there is really nothing creative on my part, as you choose a pre-created background or effect and then combine it with an image and … Continue reading How I Waste What Little Downtime I Have
I was browsing the internet a while ago (as one does)... maybe I typed in "I want to marry Richard Armitage" in a moment of weakness? Lol. Anyway... I came across this cute video from 2013 with an original song containing the unforgettable lyrics: "What I really, really, really, really, really want is to marry … Continue reading I Wonder If She’ll Ever Meet Armitage?
Yesterday's birthday was pretty low key. I'm so consumed with trying to help my youngest finish up his high school career (as well as with my work) that there is little mind power left to even think about a birthday. I asked him if for my birthday he could try to get out of the … Continue reading Another Year; Another Birthday
