I am a MATURE student in life and University. I am a mom to a 21 year old Daughter(How did that happen?) and university student. Mom to a busy 10-year-old boy. Wife of Jack-of-all trades for 29 years. Sister and friend to many. Sharon just lucky I guess.

Welcome to my new and improved Blog.


I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

3 Days

First snow

Yup! We had our first snow.
And it was a doozy!
We got blasted with 20 cm of the white stuff with high winds.
Did I mention I hate wind.
Trees fell all over the place and we had to cut our way out.
Remember the ice storm when people were without hydro for weeks?
Well I was without for 3 days. I have never went weeks without Hydro before! Not even during the Ice Storm.
I even had to go to school one day without a shower!
The horrors!
But it wasn't too bad other than being without running water, or hot water.
We heat with wood so we were warm and cozy.
The kids didn't like it but at bed time they snuggled and chatted and laughed. Something they rarely have time to do.
Who knows why "Righty Tighty and Lefty Loosey" was so funny but it had Miranda and Nathan in stitches.
At one point we were all in my bed, Daddy included, eating chips and laughing.
How could it be so bad when that happens?
