Thanks Joni! Browse away! I did the same for yours and was met with pictures from paradise--your place is spectacular, particularly from the end-of-February, northern Canadian vantage point! Thanks for posting:)

Our film premiers tonight at Cinefest International Film Festival, and while both John and I are pleased to see the process through, we understand that it's a small part of something bigger. What we are happiest for, though, is to see Jim and his family, and my family, and the... Continue reading

That's how long it's been since I've dropped in on my blog. Who knows how long it would have taken me to return ashore--if it wasn't for Ms. Alexie's kind note of "come back we miss you" I may have been caught up for another month or more. So this... Continue reading

Didn't Roald say it best? It's true that the people I most want to be around are generally productive and happy. They get things done, you know? They contribute. Yesterday we went on the most brilliant--BRILLIANT--music tour this city has ever offered. EVER. This event, held in places that, despite... Continue reading

Man alive, there's nothing I love more than spending time at camp. I try to get up more than once a year, to feel time slip away. At Sugar, we measure time in segments of activity: a block spent eating might lead to a block spent swimming, might lead to... Continue reading

Who knew it could be so easy to domesticate an animal. All it takes is a consistent supply of food and a reasonable amount of trust. After Robin Rood flew onto the back of our cat, I knew his days would be numbered if we didn’t reintegrate him into the... Continue reading

The Tale of Robin Wood takes a surprising turn as the young fledgling develops a strong sense of self and some decently splayed tail feathers. It’s been a whole week, and this bird ain’t shy for nothin’. His parents have given him up to our care; he is clearly thriving... Continue reading

It started with the soccer ball escaping down the hill towards the wood pile. Or maybe it began with the neighbour calling to complain about that precarious branch. Or perhaps it was when the arborists arrived and sawed off the impending limb. Whatever it was and however it began, the... Continue reading

Where it never rains. This will be Bus's first visit to camp. Shooting, ATV riding, boating, fishing, birding, swimming, eating. We may just decide to hunker down and squat. Have a great weekend, whatever you do. Continue reading

Oh, man. This one was good. The best yet. The River and Sky Festival's fourth year was held on the shores of the Oxbow River, with the Sturgeon River just a bike ride away. It was fairly reminiscent of last year's location, in some way, but smaller. More intimate. More... Continue reading

We've got another bed transformed, dontcha know. From a drooping, grappling mess of a bed, to a peerless bed of form and beauty. But let's back up a notch. Here's one of the ol' place when we first bought her. No spade had even entered the ground! You can hardly... Continue reading

I grew up visiting my grandparent's cottage on four-mile island on the upper French River for years. Built by my father, my grandfather and my uncle, the cottage was set high upon the smooth rock and angled just so to take advantage of the setting sun. From our vantage on... Continue reading

There are just so many things to get lovelified. This lovely flippin' bird's nest got this tree's groove on. Damn, nest! And this summer backyard barbeque? Frickin' lovely. These book covers? I'll be damned if they aren't lovely. Wish I'd made them. I sure as hell will want to read... Continue reading

Imagine yourself: it's a hazy pink summer dusk and you're watering your plenteous hanging tomatoes with grandma's glavanized can. The only sound is the drip of excess water pooling at your bare feet and the intermittent cry of the white-throated sparrow. Suddendly, tires screech, and you're surrounded by by-law enforcers...

there's no mistaking it. Billy John and Szabo are kin. And sometimes it's not the cut of the jib or the shade of the orb. Sometimes it's the swivel of the cadera, the thrust in the hips. In this pic, Billy's daughter Mazz is just a turkey bird. A wee... Continue reading

I think I inadvertently revealed the front yard in the last post, when what I meant to do was a Before and After thing. It's good to have perspective, and even if I do repeat myself in pictures, here is the process, from the beginning until the end: Last November,... Continue reading

Gonna kick it root down, duh. 'Specially when you're putting in a row of black cedars as a living fence. That's precisely what's been going on down here for the past few days--among other seasonal projects. We started by diggin a hole twice the size of the pot, which was... Continue reading

Been thinking about beauty of late. Kinfolk has no shortage in their covers, but it's all so manufactured that is has rendered the content itself an ironic version of the intended product. Kind of like the girl who can't stop reading mormon housewife blogs, because of the impossibly cute and... Continue reading
