Oh Canada! Snowshoes and the Canadian Flag

What a relief! 

According to this list, 10 decor items that say you're Canadian, my Canadian citizenship has been verified!! We don't quite have all 10 of these decor items (after all, my husband is 100 % American) but we do own quite a few! 

We are owners of the following items on the list: 

#2 (some rustic wooden furniture) and #10 (a balsam scented candle)

rustic, candles, rustic furniture

#3. Not one, but two sets of snowshoes in our guest room...

Love-Hate. Sometimes These Are Simultaneous Emotions.

Last week Lana of Two Teens and Their Mama wrote a post called Love and Hate. In it, she tagged me to write a post about ten things I love and ten things I hate, just as she had done. 

I've decided to follow Lana's example. Rather than strive for perfection - I wrote down the first 20 things that came to mind, and I'm sharing them as a list here with you. 

Strangely enough, almost all my choices reflect exactly what I blog about! I suspect this is because these really are the things about which I am most passionate!

love, hate, emotions
I saw the words love and hate written this way fairly recently, and unfortunately I don't remember where! I created the drawing in this photo from memory - but I'd love to know who first thought of this idea! 
Love and hate are often simultaneously occurring emotions.  I think it is pretty clever how

NO! to a Flag and YES! to Love

Saturday Spotlight Series #25
Today my Saturday Spotlight shines strongly on two historically significant events of this week.

I do not tend to be a person of strong opinions. I can usually see both sides to any argument so clearly that it is often difficult for me to take a stand. 

There is no wiggle room, however, in how I feel about the following two topics that have been all over the media during this past week.

I know that my opinions will not be popular with every person who reads this article or follows this blog; however, I would be happy if this post leads to constructive conversation and an increase in understanding and tolerance. People are people, all are equal, and all of our lives will be improved if we all always remember that.    

No - the confederate flag should not be flown by the South Carolina Statehouse. 

The confederate flag's association with slavery has tainted any justifiable sentimental value it may have ever had. Its political history may be complicated, but it does not represent justice for all. I hope South Carolina takes it down - and I find it tragic that it took nine deaths to spark the debate to do so.

Week #3: My List of Fabulous Finds

It is rare that I publish twice in one day. Today is one of those exceptions! 

This morning I published the third segment of my fictional short story about Mindy, the delightfully quirky compulsive shopper with hoarding tendencies. And now, as promised for every Friday, here is the latest “My List of Fabulous Finds” post. My sincere apologies if you were expecting to find this list here earlier today! 

There is a LOT of really helpful, captivating, and entertaining information available on the Internet!  It can take a lot of time however, to sift through and find the articles that interest you. In this series, I share the links to some of the “fabulous finds" I have discovered on the Internet throughout the week. 

If you read this blog, I suspect we have similar passions. If I find something to be fascinating or useful, I think you might as well. 


Here is some of what I came across this week.
