…and, I should add, start a new one. Okay, I've set up the new blog, BUT, I'm far from done. There are issues I've yet to resolve, there is functionality I've yet to implement and there are features I don't... Continue reading

Yes, I'm still here. This weekend was just too busy with work and such for me to do anything with the other site. Besides, I'm still waiting to hear from my hosting service about making a change. It's complicated, but... Continue reading

Fall Morning Fir | captured on September 21, 2011 It's almost that time for you to update your bookmarks! Over the next week or so—depending how busy I am—I'll finally be retiring this blog. { chirp, chirp } Not to... Continue reading

Season Done | captured on September 10, 2011 Well, except for photos on Saturday, we're done with soccer for the season! I would have never thought I'd be so happy. Marina ended her season last night and tonight was the... Continue reading

Time for a Shower | captured on September 5, 2011 Such is the word our young Lad uttered this evening, in the van, when his water bottle spilled all over him. Instead of the spitting fury I expected from a... Continue reading

Two Door Cinema Club | captured on September 18, 2011 For whatever reason, I just couldn't write yesterday. In fact, we barely did anything all day, just puttering about. To be honest, we did do groceries and we did take... Continue reading

By the Pole | captured on September 13, 2011 Jeez, I need to write something to replace yesterday's post as the topmost entry. Was that long enough for ya? Today was a good day. The weather is spectacular, cool yet... Continue reading

Alright, here's that long post I've been promising. I'd highly recommend you get yourself a coffee or tea because this is long. The hope is that, by writing this down, it'll help me focus on a direction. Jennifer and I... Continue reading

Pensively Marina | captured on September 11, 2011 I'm sure there will a be lot written today, on the anniversary of 9/11, but that's not why I've felt compelled to write something myself. In addition to the relief of hearing... Continue reading

I suppose the one good thing about writing a blog is a sense of accountability. You can't just tell people you'll be doing something and then not do it. Well, I suppose you could, if you can live with it.... Continue reading

Matthew: the Bath Series | captured on September 5, 2011 I've been quite the busy boy lately. Yesterday was a meeting at Humber College with professors in the Marketing program (more on that as it develops) and last night, our... Continue reading

Back to School | captured on September 6, 2011 The air is certainly cool and the traffic, snarled. The crossing guards are out in force, blowing their whistles with a vigour that comes only in September. The kids are excited... Continue reading

At Webster's Falls | captured on September 5, 2011 Jennifer didn't want to waste the long weekend so we piled into the van and drove South to Dundas; more specifically, the Spencer Gorge. The weather today was markedly different from... Continue reading

After the Run | captured on September 4, 2011 Look who decided he wanted to come for a run. We ran 3.4 kilometres. I had to ask him to slow down several times as I kept losing my breath. Still,... Continue reading

Soaring Soccer Ball | captured on August 18, 2011 Apologies for being so sporadic lately; it's a combination of being busy with volunteer work, job hunting, fighting with Service Canada and feeling a bit sorry for myself. I can't get... Continue reading

Feather Cloud | captured on August 30, 2011 It's been a noisy few days at Casa Charbonneau. In addition to my sniffling, sneezing and grumbling about itchy, tired eyes, the Lad has had a head-on collision with the Kleenex box.... Continue reading

I came across this yesterday—and not for the first time. But for whatever reason SwissMiss chose to feature it on her blog, the excerpt resonates strongly with me, particularly in light of my current struggle with determining a future path.... Continue reading

Paraflying | captured on August 13, 2011 It's 8:44 and the next door dogs are barking. Again. It's a daily affair and it can go on for quite a bit. My going outside to berate them only makes the barking... Continue reading

Shot Through | captured on August 23, 2011 Ah, Mina. Our Wee-Marina has a hard time remembering certain things that need doing every day; actually, the bulk of the family suffers from this. Yesterday was a prime example. She'd gone... Continue reading

First Run Back | data gathered on August 23, 2011 Apologies to all my fellow Torontonians. That shaking you felt yesterday afternoon wasn't the Virginia earthquake; it was just me running for the first time since March. All kidding aside,... Continue reading

Tribute For Jack Layton - College Street Bike Lane - Toronto © Martin Reis Of all the photos I've seen of Mr Layton in the past two days, this is still the one that resonates most with me. It's from... Continue reading

Looking Off | captured on August 16, 2011 I've still got 75 images to tag and tweak of the 250-or-so photos I took from our trip down East. The trick is having the discpline to take your time; something I... Continue reading

Boo | captured on February 26, 2011 Other than Cato catching (and killing) a sparrow today (which I had to dispose of), we found out from our neighbour Jacques that Boo, the next-door cat, was killed by raccoons. We had... Continue reading

New Vermont Honey | captured on August 16, 2011 We're home, safe and sound. And we're all a little tired. The drawback to jamming so much into such a short period of time is that it all blends together and... Continue reading

Lone Tree | captured on August 14, 2011 An internet connection! A dodgy one, but a connection nonetheless. I realize it's been a few days since we've connected but rest assured, we're still here! We've just stopped at Mollyocket's in... Continue reading
