low waste lunches

For much of 2020 I didn’t have to take a lunch to work. I was at home all the time so lunches were made at home as well and I always had food on hand. Now that I am back to work full time I need to have a lunch for myself 5 days a…

the best books i read this month – february 2021

I cannot believe that it is March again. This is partly because it still feels like it is still March of 2020 and partly because this month has been so busy, filled with the library that I work at having its (small) grand opening, some winter snow, some warm days out in the garden, all…

libraries

I love libraries. This probably will come at shock to no one that knows me personally, I mean I spent years of my life going to school to work in a library one day, my first stop in a new city is always a library to get a library card, and I am always encouraging…

Everyone does this differently, and I sometimes do this challenge differently as…

one year of home

Just over a year ago Nigel and I moved into our home. Now we had moved quite a bit in the first few years of our marriage; 4 times in the first year and a half to be exact so we had gotten quite good at the whole moving things, but they were all to…
