Tooth Extraction and New Projects

I am determined I am going to try and blog more. Maybe not every day but every few days to weeks. I am so horrible at it sometimes. I know I am not the only one but it sometimes bugs me. I have been sick for the last two weeks and have been off at home after a tooth extraction gone wrong. I was too sick to do much but lay on the couch but today I am feeling a slight bit better though I still have to rest and try and get rid of the infection (more about that in a moment) but because I am feeling a tiny bit better I decided to work on a few projects.

Burntcoat Head Park

On July 4th Eddie and I went to a place I have been wanting to go for a while, Burntcoat Head Park here in Nova Scotia. When the tide is out you can walk the ocean floor. It’s pretty neat. We had to time it just right for the evening high and low tides. We started heading out to get there just as it was high tide. I had taken a few pictures on my camera but I haven’t even looked at them really yet. I know it was 10 days ago but I have been busy starting my new job and just didn’t have the time. I planned this weekend but never had the time either. Maybe next weekend I will. So more pictures will follow in a Part 2 later. The following were all taken with my LG camera phone. Which is not a bad camera. READ MORE

Happy Canada Day! – Long Island & Brier Island

Happy Canada Day to any of my fellow Canadians and also a Happy early Independence Day to my neighbours! So for Canada Day this year Eddie and I decided to do something else rather than brave the crowds for the many events going on in Digby or Annapolis. We decided to drive down Digby Neck to East Ferry, hopped the Petit Princess to Tiverton on Long Island and then eventually onward to Westport on Brier Island. Anyone who knows me or has been following my blog for a while will know my love of lighthouses, islands, tides, and anything to do with the ocean other than eating fish.

After getting off the ferry in Tiverton turn right and head down Boar’s Head Road to Boar’s Head Lighthouse. The current lighthouse was built in 1957 and is the second lighthouse on the site. The original was built in 1863 in roughly the same spot. I am assuming that the area I was standing on to take the picture may have been the foundation of the original lighthouse but I am not sure. It was a large concrete platform up above the lighthouse. READ MORE

Prompt #1 – The time I backed into a wall literally

Write about a time that you accidentally did something funny. What happened and what was the consequences if any?

So as I mentioned in my last post I started a new website called The BloggerHop. Here is the first prompt for Monday, April 22nd, 2019. I am sure there have been many times that I have accidentally did something funny as my husband, my family and my friends will surely be happy to mention. One thing that really stands out in my mind though is when I backed our 2015 Nissan Altima up into a parkade wall while trying to parallel park in a small spot against the wall. First off your probably thinking, that’s not funny right?! READ MORE

2018 – A Year in Review

Happy New Years!!! Well, it is New Year’s Eve and tonight we are heading to my parent’s house for a new years eve party. They invited a bunch of friends of the family and we are staying the night as we don’t want anyone drinking and driving. We’re going to bring our blow up air mattress we got for camping a few years ago for our honeymoon and sleeping somewhere, though I am not sure yet where. We are going to play games like Uno and Bad People a game my parents got for Christmas.

Anyways, I’ve written and re-written this a few times. I find it a bit hard to look back on a whole year, mostly just because it’s hard to remember what happened when and also I never know what is the best way to write about it. Sometimes I feel writing is not one of my strong points, even though I have been blogging for almost 20 years – more than half my life! I’m just going to jump in though and sort of go in chronological order and do the best that I can to remember everything, not that there really is all that much to remember. READ MORE
