Melt my vintage heart

Aaron and I hit up the local yard sales this morning, after hitting the snooze button for the third time we figured now was as good a time as any to take off.  I’m really glad we did, because I came across a number of great finds. As a photographer, finding a decent frame, one…

When everything makes sense

On occasion, at random points during the day (sometimes it’s only one point every few weeks) I get these moments of pure happiness. Similar to what Saint Teresa would call “locutions” or, words from the supernatural that enter your mind spontaneously. I’m having one of those days where, though everything is not right and at…

It can’t happen to me..

This weekend Aaron and I went to the North West River Beach Festival. One of my favorite country singers headlined the show, Charlie Major. Typically, I don’t really like country music, but growing up my Dad and I wore out several cassettes of Charlie Major, so he is important to me because he allowed my…

Sea of no cares

I set my boat out on a sea of no cares today. We finally FINALLY have an apartment. The damage deposit has already been paid so no one can take this away from us. It’s just had complete renovations done on it, everything’s new, price is good, and it’s only about 10 min walk from…

Precious cargo

Not a lot to report today, we still haven’t solidified a place. I’m actually waiting on a call right now, I’ve been talking to a lady off and on all day about a 2 bedroom place near the college. Someone else is supposed to be looking at the place tonight and if she doesn’t take…

Homeless in Stephenville

It’s hot. I’m irritated, and it’s hot. Do you ever have those days, like me, where it seems every little thing gets to you? Today is that day. Recently we were told that the house we were supposed to be renting in Stephenville Crossing is now going to be occupied by someone else (current renters)…

Tricks are for kids

Today was one of those days where I needed something carbonated and cold to survive. I spent a good portion of today in the backyard with Aaron, mowing and (weed) whacking, and also clearing away some brush. I got burnt even though I layered on the lotion. When all was said and done I had a…

Orient this!

Luke and Carly are finally starting to get along. Sort of. Now most of the time when Carly walks up to Luke and licks his side she just gets ‘the look’ instead of a smack in the face. They also went to sleep moderately close to one another today, and ate dinner together..picture to follow.…

Meeeow

We decided that Luke needed a friend to hang out with while I was in school and Aaron was at work/school. That friend’s name is Carly.  We had wanted to get a feline friend for Luke a while ago but not until we saw the kittens at the SPCA did we decide for sure. Carly…

Steel Belted Radio

Even on the worst of days, it seems like the radio always has something to offer. When I was a young child I remember hearing the radio in the background while my parents and I tried to sleep through the hot balmy nights on the coast. Until I was old enough for school we lived…

Whatever floats your boat

Nothing particularly amazing to post today, just got back from a walk/jog up on C-side with Aaron. It was nice outside tonight, despite the flies. We drove to the dock for a look afterwords and low-and-behold, the Northern Ranger was in. This boat was the only mode of transportation out of my hometown of St.…

Our home & native land

You know what’s awesome? CANADA is!! I LOVE this country, ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave’ should be our slogan methinks. Canada is seriously the only country I would want to live in. Sure I want to travel pretty much everywhere worth travelling, but to really settle down it would…
