Last night we watched the Woman in Gold with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds. Friday night we had a treasure hunt and weiner roast.
Saturday we served a 100 Mile Dinner, with all the fixings coming from within a 100 miles - with a few tiny exceptions - served al fresco in our backyard.
My website Karyn Good as a new look and I love it! Go on over and check it out. Let me know what you think.
I have my sister and nephews visiting for a couple of weeks and she was gracious enough to share her favourite websites/blogs with us.

...but was I happy? Wasn’t I supposed to be enjoying this time with my children? This increasingly uncomfortable feeling led me to re-think the question that had once given me a tremendous source of pride. “How DO I do it all?” It was difficult to acknowledge the heartbreaking answer that I could no longer ignore. Well, I miss out. And it got worse. I miss out on life. And since I was being totally honest with myself, I acknowledged the cold hard truth: I miss out on what REALLY matters in life.And here is the part that caused teardrops to dampen the front of my shirt just like it does in a rainstorm: What I miss, I won’t ever get back. How’s that for a wake up call?The Jealous Curator is an art site.
...launched in February 2009, as a place for me to show artwork that “made me jealous”… in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way. I was literally getting stopped in my tracks every time I saw work that I loved. It was awful. But now, over six years later, that “jealousy” has turned magically, wonderfully, and thankfully into inspiration… but it’s too late to change my logo ; ). In all seriousness though, I’ve realized that jealousy can actually be turned completely on it’s head, and used as fuel to get back into the studio. It can only stop you if you let it. That’s when the magic transformation from jealousy to inspiration starts to happen… thank goodness.
House Tweaking is all about having a fixer-upper and home decorating.
We fell in love with all things house and home. Then we did the unthinkable. We ditched our McMansion in exchange for a small, dilapidated 1950’s ranch complete with termite trails in the original shag carpeting. We’ve deemed it The Underdog. It’s not our dream house but, rather, the house in which to pursue our dreams. We believe that making a house a home is as much about what you do in it as what you do to it.
