Single Shot Monday: All That Glitters… +

… Isn’t Gold!

Another shot from the Toronto Light Festival at the Distillery District. Probably should save it for V-Day 2018 but by the time that rolls around, I will have forgotten all about it.

In Other News ~

We have clearly entered Mud Season. Squish Season. Gumboot Season. The soggy, smisty — I declare smist a word! — season that is spring. I’m good with that, as long as I get out and depoop the back garden every day. Every. Day.

TMI? That’s life with a G-Pup.

And while I’m there, I might as well troll for spring garden tips. Anything that is green. I see daff tips and chive tips and daylily tips and lilac buds. Woo-hoo.

And, no. I’m not looking through a magic mirror.

Yesterday, we had our first cozy fire since the fireplace was cleaned in August. How did that happen? I know how it happened. This winter was c-c-c-cold. And with the Ontario hydro rates, I didn’t feel like sucking all that heat out of the house for setting… mood. Spring fires for 2017!

Friday Night at the Movies was Miss Sloane (2016). Two words — Jessica Chastain. I’m not sure she breathed through the entire film. Thrills and drama, drama, drama. Have you seen it?

And Monday is in the house.

Git to work. Git to work. Git to work.

Unless this is your day off. If it’s your day off…

I don’t even want to know you. (Thank you, Mrs. Landingham)

Just kidding.


Fridaaaaay!… Go Green

A Bit o’ the Green!

This sits on my desk. I look at it every day and wait for my seeds to arrive in the mail.

It needs to be soon.



Now, okay?

Today, I’m wearing my green eyes, green sweater, green earrings… and orange socks. Nobody can see those. They’re stuffed into DAV ankle boots, which are black. Pretty much the basic wardrobe is black. Not much to coordinate there. Throw on a pop of color — like green for St. Paddy’s Day — and you’re done. Even the iPhone case is green.


I’m thinking in green today.

Aren’t you just green with envy?


Moving right along.

True Confessions ~

I watched a few movies this month.

Finding Dory (2016) — Not just for kids. It was a kick.

Lion (2016) — We all left the theater feeling a little shocky and bruised. It was the most powerful film I’ve seen in 2017.

Jackie (2016) — History, biography. Natalie Portman. What’s not to love there? I might be suffering from secondhand smoke. Mebbe.

Passengers (2016) — IMDb labels it adventure/drama/romance. iTunes labels it sci-fi/fantasy. Take your pick. I liked this more than G-Man, but then I’m a sucker for special effects and a good bartender. Still. I thought the real story was missing from the reel. Let me know what you think.

There might have been more, but those stuck in my brain.

What have you seen? Anything?

Here be Friday in all its wintry March glory.

Now. Go get your green on.

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…

Guinness, I say!
