In case you were thinking about signing up for Audible Canada today (September 19 only) to take advantage of the 2 free audiobooks instead of 1 to start (details here), there is an added bonus. David Copperfield narrated by Richard Armitage is free today. So, you could actually get 3 free audiobooks! I just signed up for Audible … Continue reading “David Copperfield” is Free Today
I wonder if I can trick myself into thinking it's still summer, if I go back a month to my Toronto trip. Worth a try, although it's hard to be fooled after standing in the rain on the weekend watching my son's first rugby game of the season. The original reason for going to Toronto … Continue reading 2018 Vacation #2: Toronto, Ontario
With Richard Armitage doing so many audiobooks lately, I'm thinking that I may need to supplement my Audible UK subscription. Apparently, you can have a subscription with more than one Audible marketplace (country). I just noticed that until September 19, Audible Canada has a deal where you get 2 free audiobooks when you sign up … Continue reading Audible Deal to Sept 19
What a busy summer it's been, and now the rain has finally come! I just realized that it's been two months since I last posted about the RA Challenge! Before I get back to that, let me show you what I ordered from Etsy thanks to seeing them via Guylty's Weekly Roundup of Tumblr posts yesterday. Aren't they … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: G to J
Isn't it time for fire season to be over yet? I mean, come on! It's September! Truly, what affects me in the city are just minor annoyances (although see below for how they totally messed up my plans yesterday), but I feel for the people where the fires have been burning. 2018 is now the … Continue reading Enough, already!
I can't believe it's September already! I've only seen four movies since Oceans 8. Three of them are good if you're into the subject/style of film, but the last one is so disgustingly misogynistic, I can't believe I sat through it. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again This was the second movie that my group … Continue reading Movies over the Summer
Three vacations in a summer! I can't remember when I last had that much time away. I'm a little behind in recounting my adventures, so I think I'll start first with my most recent trip, a mini-escape, while it's still fresh in my mind. Thanks to my Air Miles collecting, my hubby and I were … Continue reading 2018 Vacation #3: Parksville, B.C.
Yes, it's birthday week in my household, as well as in Armitage-land. My husband's big day was on the weekend, and my younger son (much to his chagrin) shares a birthday with RA. But all of those many candles did not create the smoke that has been blanketing the province of British Columbia. The cause … Continue reading It’s Not from the Birthday Candles!
Yesterday, before my flight home to Vancouver, I woke up thinking of a song that hadn't entered my mind in many years. Even though I am not particularly religious, I love good country gospel music, where passionate belief has sparked such creative beauty. "When I Sing for Him" is a song by Porter Wagoner, sung … Continue reading Coming Home
Last glimpse of the mountains on the flight out of Vancouver: The song I sang in my head during the turbulence, telling myself "Everything's Alright": https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ugYB3VxpivU The first glimpse of Toronto through the window: The song I sang in my head as we began our descent: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iTfB8Q6DpZ0
