Today happens to be a cute little bit of synchronicity. Heather and I were married on July 17th– hence the URL of this blog. That was in 2010, making today seven years we’ve been married. But we first started dating a decade before that, in 2000. So we’ve been together seventeen years, on our seventh […]
Manitoba is… Manitoba. We drove across it. Yup. And then this happened: And by “happened”, I mean we were driving the Trans Canada through Manitoba and came to the ONE hill in the entire province. We rounded the bend, and suddenly, without any warning, BAM there’s Saskatchewan and their “visitor center”. There were no signs […]
Whoo, it’s been a whirlwind of a week. Early out to do stuff, and late in afterwards. So catch up posts between now and Vancouver. Between Winnipeg and Saskatoon, I had the choice of a couple different routes. One would have veered north right away, through Yorkton. The other would have stayed on the Trans […]
At last, we are truly “on the road”. Early this evening, we passed the Ontario/Manitoba border. Circumnavigating the Great Lakes is behind us– and so is Ontario. I’ve never stepped foot in Manitoba before, so this is a first for me. But it won’t really be much of anything. Tomorrow we’re just motoring through the […]

Combine that with frequent stops for coffee, scenery, and washroom (because of frequent stops for coffee) and the day’s journey takes slightly longer than expected by Google. We’ve […]
Just stretching Orr legs at the Georgian Bay rest stop.
Vacation is officially ON! The car is packed. Well, as packed as a car can be the night before. There surely will be odds and ends to put in tomorrow morning, like socks and Molly. Teela is already on doggie-vacation, lounging it up with Mary-Lou and Allen. As for Molly– she just had an exciting […]
Happy Birthday, Molly! Enjoy your breakfast “cake”– it is totally an apple cheesecake– not a yogurt base with apple sauce and Cheerio sprinkles. =) Lots of love and a joyous day!
Today’s the first full day I’m at home, just Molly and me. I’ve been looking forward to this day for, literally, years. It’s going to be a comfy-clothes and take-it-easy day. Just a chance for us to settle into a new routine. Just relaxing and eating Cheerios. And having naps. Very, very important, those naps.
Since the news of Joan Rivers’ passing today– and in fact since her hospitalization last week– I’ve seen a heck of a lot of vitriol and hatred directed towards her– nearly all of it directed at her as a person. Someone will say something horrible, and follow it with “if she wasn’t nice to other […]
