Spring Cleaning

I’ve been dealing with health issues for the past few months (don’t worry, I’m fine!)  Because of this, I’ve been thinking a lot of regenerating. Food is part of this.

The January Post

To me, it feels like this winter has been the coldest I’ve gone through in some time. Wind chill has been about -20ºc, it’s been grey, it’s been windy.  This is one of the reasons why I’ve been thinking about concepts like  warmth, and rest, and being home.

Valentine’s Day

As for me, I’m absolutely going to enjoy today as the first V-Day I’ve had as a single girl in almost two decades. This calls for ice cream, video games and chardonnay. :D * created with Inkscape and GIMP 2.8 ** brick pattern by AscendedArts at DA (Please do not download, repost, redistribute, use in derivative creations, etc., etc., without full […]

The New Apartment

Well, I suppose I should mention that my life has gone through some major upheavals this summer. I sold my family home, broke up with my boyfriend (we’re still friends!), and moved into a spiffy new apartment.  So I chronicled the move somewhat and here are the pictures.  I know I’m not the only one who likes to peek into […]

My Corner

I took these pictures a while ago when I redecorated the room where I’m staying at the folks. It’s been almost a month, but I still want to add a few more touches. I guess it depends on how long I want to stay here. ;)

Pictures from IDS10

This weekend, I treated myself (and the boyfriend, lol) with a trip to the Interior Design Show 2010 which happened this year at the Metro Convention Center. And of course, I took a bunch of pictures! More pics after the cut (61 thumbnails) …

Gooseberries make me happy!

I thought my gooseberry harvest was scant a couple of weeks ago. For some reason, yesterday I went out to check on the shrub and found a bounty. I picked up maybe 2 or 3 quarts of gooseberries, and there is still more ripening. Gooseberries have a firm texture, a thicker skin and I guess the only way I could […]

THANK YOU GODS OF THUNDER AND JELLY AND JAM!

Blueberry jam by me! A while ago, I bought a canning pot and a bunch of supplies. The idea was, if I had enough gooseberries, I’d make some jam. Unfortunately, my gooseberry harvest last week was literally a handful, and I don’t think I’d be able to harvest the whole bush in a single batch.  So I went to the […]

Tomato Update: Mid July

There’s a handful of these already on my cherry tomato plants and even more flowers. My Romas are flowering too and look ready to fruit. In other garden news, my cucumber plant keeps getting torn up by some animal and every time, I diligently replant it. It’s struggling, and doesn’t look like it’ll survive even if it doesn’t get dug […]

Tomatoes and Daisies

I came back home earlier in the afternoon after spending Saturday and Friday night with the boy. (We went to the Tenori-on Toronto release). About an hour after i got home and settled down, I realized that the power was down. I went to the mall to do some food shopping, and the mall was closed because power was off […]
