One of my stocking stuffers at Christmas was a copy of Hello! Canada. The horoscope, unfortunately, resonated with me: "The task that lies before you may look so vast that you're tempted to give up, but ...you can throw your pessimism away. So roll up your sleeves! There's work to be done and you have the … Continue reading Pick-Me-Ups
Hard to believe I've been doing this blogging thing for over two years now, starting at the beginning of 2017. Sometimes it seems like I've always been doing it and sometimes I feel like a newbie, especially compared to some of the wonderful long-time bloggers out there. This blog has been my first experience putting … Continue reading Blog Year #2 (a.k.a. 2018)
It's been a really rough week at the office, pretty much non-stop since I got back from my trip. Seems like there's no way to get on top of the work. Made a silly mistake due to doing a million things at once. Got chewed out by someone who really has no right to do … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: V to Z
Back from my trip to Ontario -- and of course it's raining here, as it tends to do in Vancouver. I was missing the mountains, but I still can't see them through the overcast sky! On the plane to Toronto, I took advantage of the free movies and re-watched Ocean's 8, enjoying it once again even … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: R to U
Time to pick this challenge up again... apparently, it's been a month since the last one. (I'm a bad fan.) Continued from here. O -- Casual RA or dressed-to-the-nines RA? Which one to choose... which one to choose... For today, I think I'll go for dressed-to-the-nines. (On any given day, however, I reserve the right … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: O to Q
This post takes me past the halfway point of the challenge at last -- at this rate I might be done by Christmas! Continued from here. K -- Have you met RA? Where? Have you got a photo to share? And what did you say to him? Unfortunately, I have not met RA. Well, I … Continue reading Richard Armitage Fan A to Z: K to N
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
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!
Hint: Only one of them is mine.
At the end of June, I went to see Macbeth at Western Canada's largest not-for-profit, professional Shakespeare festival, Bard on the Beach. My younger son read the Scottish play in his high school English class this year, so I had wanted to take him to see a performance. I thought about the National Theatre Live … Continue reading I Saw a Play and the RA Fan A to Z: F
