Spring is here and the RV dealerships are buzzing with excited families looking to get in the camping game. So now that you bought yourself a camper trailer, what do you do next? You PACK!

Dirty Dishes: Mama’s Slow Cooker Meatball Soup

This soup has been a cold weather staple in our house for a long time. Yesterday we got a spring winter storm with more than 10cm of snow. Soup seemed logical so I changed it by adding a gluten-free, wheat-free, organic quinoa pasta and I think it’s damn near perfection!

Nice Kitty

We own some land in British Columbia and every winter our neighbour tracks big cats with his dogs. He does not kill or harm the animals he simply tracks them and photographs them. This kitty is the most beautiful one he’s found so far.

Happy Valentines Day to my Wife

Oh, didn’t I tell you? Yes, it’s true, I have a wife and I couldn’t live without her. Questions? I thought so. I haven’t taken up religion or joined a compound (although that’s not a bad idea) and I don’t share my husband with another woman.

3 Pillars

When my husband and I started having kids back in 2003 we thought long and hard, over the following years, about what “things” were important to us as parents. The “things” we wanted to ensure our kids learned and valued. My husband was an athlete his whole life. He was a diver from the age of 10 until the age … Continue reading

The game of “firsts”

Ah parenthood, no matter how many kids you have and how old they are, you are never immune to the game of “firsts”.
