Just by accident I have a post! Oh and a challenge

I am fortunate enough to have the central library and public gardens within walking distance of work.  It is easy to get to both and enjoy on my lunch hour.  A few weeks ago I treated myself to an ice coffee during McDonald's dollar drinks.   It was beautiful out so I headed up the street … Continue reading Just by accident I have a post!

Creative Leap – Back in Time

At the beginning of the year I decided to try something new.  Check this post for the start of the journey. Think back to a time and place that captured your attention.  Describe it.  The weather, smells, colours, maybe the reason you were there.  What made it special?  If you close your eyes can you conjure … Continue reading Creative Leap – Back in Time

Creative Leap – Your Map

Grab a piece of paper and draw a map of some aspect of your everyday life.  Maybe it is your route to work.  Or your route to get ready in the morning.  What about a map of meal prep?  How many times to you open the fridge getting supper ready? Is your map a series … Continue reading Creative Leap – Your Map

When a friend mentioned doing an ABC year in January I was in on the spot.  I love making lists, so yeah I'm in.  The "rules" are using the alphabet try, do, eat, explore, see, you get the idea, something that you have never experienced before.

A year of challenges – gratitude

Last month I didn't do well on my newspaper challenge.  I have no excuse. I just didn't pull it together. I don't get the newspaper so it was going to involve going to the library. Which I do weekly anyways. I did put a call into a neighbour but she passes her paper on to … Continue reading A year of challenges – gratitude

Saturday at noon

  I'm looking at the calendar and well, I'm a bit in denial.  By the end of the week I will be flipping the calendar to a new month.  I have no idea where the first five months of the year went. Yeah, I know I did a few projects, read a few books and … Continue reading Saturday at noon
