When dishwashers attack.


This morning started out like any other day. I got up and brewed myself a decaf Keurig coffee. I drank it pretending it was fully caffeinated and then set about making breakfast. The boys then went their way while I went mine and as I was making the bed before my shower I walked into […]

Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins

double chocolate muffin

These are selfish muffins as they cater to my particular tastes and needs. I’ve been making all kinds of muffins for my son lately but I found myself wanting something today and as he’s at school I threw these together.  I was craving  something that wasn’t too sweet, just sweet enough. Something I could eat […]

Because it’s Wednesday {March 12th edition}

Something to listen to as you go about your business:  If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you will know of my deep abiding love for the music of John Mayer. Note I did not say a deep abiding love for John Mayer himself. I don’t know him personally and I am cool […]

Poke the bear


For some unknown reason my son has started getting up between the hours of 2 and 3 every morning. He sneaks into our room quietly and then stares at me until I wake up. It’s kind of freaky. He doesn’t want to wake me as he knows he’s supposed to be asleep but he wants […]

We rise again


Ash Wednesday brought with it a lot of statements on my Facebook and Twitter feed reminding me that I was going to die. I know this. I also know that meditating on the fact that from dust we came and to dust we shall return can be a good exercise. None of us should believe […]

Preparations for Lent

It seems funny in a way to prepare for Lent as it is a season of preparation itself. Nevertheless we prepare to prepare. We think of fasts or projects to participate in. We dream of pancakes or packzis to devour. We think of what is to come and hopefully plan ways in which to dig […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins


We’ve been on a muffin kick here lately. My son asks for them all the time and devours them if allowed. This means I need to find different recipes to prevent boredom (on my part anyways). His favourite muffin is chocolate chip and I wanted to find a variation that we could add into the rotation. […]

Because it’s Wednesday…

Because it’s Wednesday and I’m feeling frivolous and free I figured I would share some things I like right now beginning with this video. I’m a music nerd and enjoyed Pitch Perfect perhaps more than I should have. I like this rendition of When I’m Gone and thought I’d share it with you. Now on […]

Where would we be now?

“There were a lot of political films coming out of Europe during the late ’60s. Movies like Costa-Gavras’s ‘Z’ and stuff like that. I used to go see all of them, and I realized that my righteous indignation was a form of entertainment for me. I loved getting pissed off at injustice. I didn’t do […]
