I guess it's been around 7 weeks since I wrote Part 1 and somehow thought I might have some free time. (What was I thinking?!) I've now finished my big project and have a few weeks before the next one starts. I managed to take Sunday and Monday off this week! (Normally I work pretty … Continue reading Rebalancing – Part 2
I often feel when I'm posting about vacations or fun times that it seems like I'm posting something blog-perfect (to steal a term from Instagram). Not that what I'm posting isn't real, of course, just that the warts are hidden from public consumption. So, today's post is filled with the regular and irregular ups and … Continue reading Ten Days
This morning was nice... my husband brought me a cup of coffee in bed! A rare treat. We've been getting along pretty well as co-workers -- especially since we started using the trick I read on-line. We invent an imaginary co-worker to blame things on, as in, "That Felix! He left his coffee cup on … Continue reading Discoveries in the Time of Coronavirus
Home again. I was greeted by the dog, who seems to only love me for the treats I give. He runs to get in front of me, herding me, hoping for something, anything. My younger son tells me that we need to do something ASAP about the wifi in his room and that he has … Continue reading The Escape: Home, Books, Movies, Etc.
**NO SPOILERS** The anticipation is over... Thursday and Friday evening, I binge-watched Netflix's The Stranger starring Richard Armitage. What a relief to find that the 8-episode series is actually good! The Stranger is based on Harlan Coben's book of the same name. Red Production Company, Coben, and Danny Brocklehurst have collaborated on two previous series, but … Continue reading Finally… A Good On-Screen Project!
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?
Why would the guy who admittedly preferred to stay inside reading rather than play footie (or presumably other sports) with his brother remind me of rugby? Well, as I was mentioning to Kate the other day, there are these screenshots on RichardArmitageNet.com that show just how suited those legs and let's be honest, those glutes were for the … Continue reading Richard to Rugby
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
Wine and Armitage... two of my favourite things. In the summer, we travel every year to the Okanagan wine region of British Columbia for a beach vacation. Of course, we always have to throw in a few visits to the local wineries! Many of the wineries are located on high ground, with the best views … Continue reading Of Wine and Armitage
What a treat to see Richard Armitage in a story on TV (and so animated too! Lol), rather than just hear him in an audiobook! The second season of Castlevania recently appeared on Netflix and I was really excited to watch it. It instantly engaged me, starting from the exciting theme song (by Canadian composer … Continue reading Castlevania 2 – Painter of Light?
