hedgehog

Well I didn’t blog at Calgary Expo again. Never fear – there’s another con I’m hoping to go to later in the year, hopefully I’ll actually have the wherewithal to do it then.

But onto other things.

It’s been quiet here, and not for lack of trying, but I’ve been extremely busy. I’m not quite prepared yet to make grand announcements and proclamations (even if only to the, I don’t know, three people that probably happen across this blog), but trust that I am really busy, and haven’t abandoned the blog (ahem, again…).

Hopefully I’ll publish some more things over the next few weeks (it all comes to a head in July), but if not, I will be back soon, and hopefully with some interesting stories to share.

Kickstart It

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

I had these grand plans to write this wonderful, thoughtful post here on the first day of 2013. You know, get the year kick-started off right with this blog. If I have one resolution (which I don’t really, because I almost have a philosophical problem with them as a whole), it’s to write more often in this blog.

Then I ended up with a wicked hangover, and watched a marathon of Homicide: Life On The Street yesterday. So if what you do on the first day of the new year is any kind of sign to what the rest of your year will be like, I’ll either be murdered or become a alcoholic. Thank god I’m not the kind of person that believes in ridiculous things like that.

The kicker was, I’d never had a hangover before. I blame that god-awful lychee liqueur. But you see, by the time that was busted out, I was already too intoxicated to care that it smelled like death warmed over.

Scratch that, I do have a resolution: never touch lychee liqueur again.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’ll be keeping that one.

I’m not going to reflect on 2012 as a year and any trials or tribulations that I had. I’m not even going to talk about all the awesome things that happened either. Mostly because, the flip of a calendar is completely arbitrary. I’ve never understood why people who want to loose weight, or quit smoking, or want to pet more puppies, or whatever, feel the need to wait until some magical day that will make your resolve that much more solid. It doesn’t. If anything, it’s putting something off. Why not do what you want to do now?

Then again, I’ve always been a rather impatient person.

I was going to write about the book I started yesterday, but instead I’ll wait until another post. I kind of got carried away on a tangent there.

So…

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

I think rather than trying to limit what this little space will be (“I will deem thee a photo blog” or “you will now be a garden blog”), it’s going to be whatever the hell strikes my fancy.

I think that’s a good idea.

I half-wrote a somewhat long entry for my trip to Calgary Expo that I never got around to finishing and posting. Hrm.

Three Feet High

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Somehow it felt appropriate to post this photo. It was actually taken a few years back when we were still living in the Kootenays. It’s a picture of my old back fence with a pile of snow. That’s a 3ft fence, so you get an idea of the snowfall.

Every time around this part of the year, I get really thankful of where I am. It’s warm, and it may be raining, but flower are blooming and spring is officially here.

No snow, winter jackets are too warm, and a warm south wind has the ocean lapping up against the shore. It couldn’t possibly get better.

I think I’m going to turn this back into a photoblog. I had one a while ago. I liked it, because I didn’t have to say anything if I didn’t want to.
