Bloganuary 1, 2023: What is something you want to achieve this year?

As I just explained in my last post, I rarely seemed to have enough time to focus on my blog in 2022. The days just so often got away from me. So, in some respects, Bloganuary has come around at the perfect time. I will do my best to answer each daily prompt, and hopefully,Continue reading “Bloganuary 1, 2023: What is something you want to achieve this year?”

There aren’t enough hours in the day!

Growing up, it’s what I heard my mom say all the time: “There aren’t enough hours in the day!” Each and every time she said it, I was overcome with sheer disbelief. After all, time ticked by sooooo slowly as a kid. But I get it now. I hear my own voice making the sameContinue reading “There aren’t enough hours in the day!”

Attending a music festival or concert.

I had recently discovered Brett Dennen, a singer songwriter whose unique voice, heartfelt lyrics, and beautiful guitar melodies captivate me. I saw that he would be a performing at the Moon Crush music festival last October, and I wanted to go. But more than simply going, I wanted to go with someone in particular: Amy.Continue reading “Attending a music festival or concert.”

Watching a Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training game.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love the fact that my team, the Toronto Blue Jays, play their spring training games in Dunedin, Florida. The same Dunedin, Florida in which I live. They even have their practice facility on the road right behind my condo complex. It’s amazing! I was wonderingContinue reading “Watching a Toronto Blue Jays Spring Training game.”

Watching the Maple Leafs play in person.

This will be a memory I want to make each and every year. Each and every time I have the opportunity to see my beloved Toronto Maple Leafs play a game, I will be in the arena. Granted, my desire to cheer them on in person will always be restricted by my budget and whetherContinue reading “Watching the Maple Leafs play in person.”

Making s’mores.

As a kid, I remember s’mores being a rare delicacy around the fire pit when I went camping with my family. Marshmallows, sure. Those were staples, packed along with hot dogs and baked beans. But actually pulling out all the stops, and bringing graham crackers and chocolate, too? That somehow seemed to be more difficult.Continue reading “Making s’mores.”

Picking fresh strawberries.

Every year, it’s a surprise that Florida fruit ripens so much earlier than I’m used to. Growing up in the Toronto area, my brain has strawberry season being a summer thing. Having them be pickable in early March is somehow hard to remember. I’ve been in Florida for about 7 years now, and this seasonContinue reading “Picking fresh strawberries.”

Participating in Bloganuary.

It’s been just about a week since I wrote a blog post. Normally, that wouldn’t feel weird. But after last month’s Bloganuary extravaganza, these past 6 days have been quite the respite. Did you get tired of my posts? I hope not. If you did, though, thanks for sticking it out with me. Last February,Continue reading “Participating in Bloganuary.”
