I'm an autistic multipotentialist and I'm "old" now. If that's not 3 strikes against me, I don't know what is...

Rest in Peace, Ruby Daniel…

This is an incredibly sad day. I have lost a dear, dear friend, a wonderful lady that has supported me and all I do for the last 14 years. She held my hand when my father died, and my heart when my mother followed two years later. She became an adopted grandmother to my daughter…

I Know Why Spring is Late…

I believe I may owe Sault Ste. Marie an apology… I’ve concluded that we are still experiencing winter in April because Kaylee loves snow more than just about anything else. I should never have allowed her to watch “The Secret” (and since she’s obviously running the Universe now, I wish she loved money this much).

A Nice Surprise…

I had no idea that my Wandering Jew (Spiderwort) was a flowering plant until I discovered this blossom today – a happy surprise!

The Dogs Were Weird…

I don’t know what was going on today with the dogs, but they were all acting weird. I couldn’t get a shot of all of them being weird at the same tim, but I did manage to snap this one of Kaylee attempting to fly, with Ernie looking on, quite intrigued, by the look of…

Farm-Sitting Again…

This is my favourite part of the walk with the dogs. We go out to run the fields twice a day, and this is the first section of our journey. It’s so peaceful through this trail, and I always find at least a shopping bag worth of pine and spruce cones. I’m glad to be…

Squirrel Hunting…

The dog was in stealth mode at the park today. There is a very thin, but incredibly hard, crust on top of the snow left in the field, and when we were walking along on top of it, we heard a very quiet, “ShaaaaaWIIIIIIISH!” as all the soft snow under the crisp top layer fell…

West End Entertainment…

I don’t know why but it must be the “Small Town Girl” still in me – every time there is some kind of emergency in my vicinity, I get thrilled beyond my capacity. I don’t know what was going on here (I think maybe somebody “smelled gas”), but it was a very laid-back emergency. People…

Today is the Day

Nope. Definitely, Not Tired.

We went swimming today at the YMCA. Carson was groggy all day – every time we put him down, he fell asleep, only to wake up in a completely different location, in a completely different outfit, having slept through the in-between… He woke up after this nap, wearing bathing trunks and staring at an indoor…

Tired? I’m Not Tired, Oma!

They have arrived! Carson made himself right at home with the Cheerios… I don’t mind that so much – but he has learned to put his own boots on recently. He has also learned that Cheerios being squished under one’s boot makes a very satisfying, crunchy mess. While Mom went out on the town with…
