Digging In the Dirt Part 2

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood

Didn’t get any dirt under my fingernails today since it rained here most of the day, so I took a couple pictures instead.

This doesn’t quite go with the rest of the post, but rookie camp for the Saskatchewan Roughriders starts this week, which means the Canadian Football League season is just around the corner. Looking forward to a less tumultuous season than last year!

Thank you!

Thank you for visiting my blog!  I’m still figuring this whole thing out, but so far, so good!

Vancouver Island Pics

Since the weather here in Saskatchewan has been more like that of the weather on Vancouver Island, I’ve been going through my pics from trips to Vancouver Island in 2009 and 2011.  It will make me a happy girl to continue to go there every two years or so. It’s a beautiful place.

Weekend Reading

Weekend Reading

Paged through this on my coffee break and it looks to be a fun read full of travel tips and anecdotes. It’s supposed to be a cool, rainy weekend here so I’m looking forward to reading this while drinking a good cup of coffee.

Movie Recommendation

The First Grader

Moving true story of an elderly man’s desire to get an education (and also teach others along the way).  Watched it a few weeks ago and highly recommend it.

The Tutu Project

This is the feel good story of the day.  I dare you not to smile when you scroll through the pictures!
