I’m still here. I’ve been baking bread.

I’ve been busy in real life… very, very, busy. Even with all the busy, I’ve been writing posts on a regular basis; they’re all filed away in my head. That doesn’t really help most of you folks unless you’re psychic. Are any of you psychic?  Can you guess what I’m going to say next? Well, then you aren’t really psychic, are you! It may take awhile to pull the posts from the mental filing cabinet, the drawers get stuck and it sometimes locks itself and I lost the key.

In the meantime, exciting news in our household… We got a breadmaker. Trust me, if you don’t have one, you should get one. It’s revolutionary. It’s making my kitchen great again. No lie. Anyone who tells you breadmakers aren’t the greatest invention is telling you lies. (Sorry… I’ve been watching this really awful reality tv show on fake news channels lately.) Seriously, I never knew how bloody easy it is to make bread! And it’s delicious.

I’m easily distracted by delicious foods. Speaking of which, there’s a bit of pad thai left so this is it for now.

Happy friday everyone!

Epic daily commute

So… daylight savings… I know this is a bit after the fact, but I’ve discovered a way not to completely hate it.

Although I totally miss getting home after work while there is still a bit of daylight left (and would far rather be engulfed in darkness when I head to work in the morning), I’ve discovered a delightful benefit to driving home in the dark…

… cue the movie soundtrack for Lord of the Rings…

There’s something about driving in the dark with an epic soundtrack playing loudly. It transforms the boring old drive down the road with lots of annoying other drivers taking up precious road space into a journey fraught with danger, adventure, and strange creatures lurking in the shadows. No really, it actually does. You should try it. It’s epic and spooky and yes I may be a little weird and nerdy. It’s working for me though.

Of course, the music totally freaks the kids out so when I pick them up from after school care I have to go back to the regular soundtrack of silly songs.

Candy coma haze…

So, just coming out of a candy induced coma post Halloween and something seems a little off in the world. Did I miss something?

I’ve heard rumours that America elected a reality TV star to run the country. Apparently girls aren’t allowed to be president yet. To be fair, they aren’t allowed to be prime minister up here either. Plus we’ve got a high school teacher in charge of things.

Canada = bunch of high school students
USA = bunch of reality TV “actors”

I’m probably just going to stay on my side of the continent for awhile, high school wasn’t that bad. You folks look out for each other down there.
