Mixed Emotions – Marbles Made Her Book Debut

Our beautiful polydactyl kitty, Marbles, made her debut this week in JUNKYARD DOG. She's also been missing since July 23. With all the ins and outs of moving to a new province, she managed to zip out the door of our new home. Posters, phone calls, emails, and social media posts haven't led to any…

Trimming trees for an hour on 1/3 acre has nowhere near the visual wham as doing it on a small plot of land. Today's goal was removing two spindly,…

Sold on the Life
