I thought I'd be writing more fiction and blogging during the pandemic. I mean, I was home more so..... but it didn't happen. I did a paint-by-numbers for a friend, re-read books from my bookcase, listened to podcasts and watched Netflix. Motivation, lack of it, came into play. I want to end the year strong … Continue reading Getting back into the habit – a few challenges
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

2020 has been surreal. I had high hopes for the year. Then the world went to crap and wham we're in self isolation. I continued working during the pandemic so that routine didn't change. It was more staying at home once I walked through the door. I enjoy my time at home. Alone. The biggest … Continue reading Just doing it! Checking a box
This summer the majority of us will be staying closer to home. Summer is a short season for me (Canada) so I didn’t want to waste it with regrets and negativity about what I can’t do. I want to focus on positives as summer is here and life is happening regardless of pandemic. So I … Continue reading Seasonal plans – summer for me

I post the first Wednesday of the month my leap and post the results two weeks later. On July 1st I decided I wanted to do a map. Check the post here. First … Continue reading Creative Leap – my walking map
First Monday of a new month and the year now half over. WHAT!! I enjoy these posts as nothing serious and mainly eye candy. Hope something captures your eye! I thought of my friend Wanda when I saw this apartment. It combines vintage and second-hand finds (something she loves). Head over to Apartment Therapy to check … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month!
July 1st was Canada Day. A Wednesday so not a long weekend unless you took vacation days. Which I did for Thursday and Friday. I didn't use up all last year's vacation due to COVID-19 and April started a new vacation year so have days to play with. I know that is a privilege that … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share – new normal???
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
I had to shake my head recently when I heard someone I respect say "what I do isn't going to make a difference." The issue would have meant spending more time and energy on the alternative. The alternative would have been better for the environment. But no, it required more time and energy than … Continue reading What I do isn’t going to make a difference……this is a rant
