My 100 & Me [Week 35]

It’s hard to believe that winter was ever here – with the warmest temperatures we’ve had yet this year enveloping us this weekend. The snow has all but melted, the ground is thawing, and the days are certainly getting longer, filled with all the sunlight we’ve missed…and needed.

My 100 & Me [Week 34]

Nothing to see here. Just some thawing grounds, dripping eavestroughs and melting snowbanks. It’s the first day of plus whatever temperatures and it actually feels like we are coming out of winter for warmer months. No one wants to jinx it here but wouldn’t it be nice if we actually saw an early spring?

My 100 & Me [Week 25]

The first snowfall of the season has brought a blanket of the white stuff to Bedford Mills. While there isn’t that much snow collected on the ground, and there wasn’t this beautiful swath of light illuminating the house as the sun went down, I have high hopes that we are stepping into a period where…

My 100 & Me [Week 21]

I’ve been thinking a lot about fire these days. Not because I’m a pyro (well maybe a little at heart) but because it seems to me that fire is a source of a lot of metaphors in my life.

My 100 & Me [Week 10]

Live events. I used to be so passionate about them. Would spent most waking hours listening to live Hip recordings, sharing bootleg copies with other fans, and going to shows. I can’t remember the last time I did any of those things. I had tickets to see the Black Keys show in Ottawa in May but that was all cancelled…

My 100 & Me [Week 09]

How quickly life can lead you in other directions. This blog is super important to me yet it’s been over a year since I’ve updated it. Why? I could list a thousand reasons – all of which would probably be valid in one way or another but I think the truth is that sometimes I just feel like I don’t…

My 100 & Me [Week 08]

It’s amazing how the weather shifts from week to week and how those shifts can affect your mood & emotional state. Last week was filled with blue skies, blooming flowers and an overall bright & airy colour palette. This week not so much. We were back to rain, flooding, and an overall sense…
