    Hoping you don't have to wait too long ChemGal until your appointment. Waiting is the worst.

    Room For All

    I painted the brick around our original fireplaces - used regular latex paint. It's time consuming ... poking into all the mortar lines etc. - slow going. Of course have to wash, brush, clean the brick very well first. Took a couple of coats. I'm not sure how chalk paint would work - I have...

    Informative Article on God's Unconditional and Conditional Love ------

    Sigh ... and the biblical boxing matches continue ... to what end? I leave it to Richard Rohr to say it better than I ever could ... I do share this thought.

    What will our new government look like?

    I heard some interesting commentary the other day - Sheer was claiming that if a minority gov, then the leader of the party with the most votes would become PM. This was stated as INCORRECT. Apparently Trudeau is still the PM until such time as he may resign - which he does not actually have...

    What will our new government look like?

    I suspect Liberal minority will be the result with close working liaison with NDP - not sure if Libs will accept official coalition - time will tell. NDP has been very emphatic in saying they will not work with Conservatives. Extremely worriesome if Cons get in - but seems like some recent...

    What to serve....

    We've sometimes made that strata (Xmas morning wife saver type recipe) that is good - make the night before & bake in the morning for breakfast. The breakfast bar sounds good too ... or maybe ask what people usually enjoy & just provide that! For me it's usually just 2 rice cakes with peanut...

    RIP Mendalla's lawnmower. We've been surrounded by the excitement of son & gf returning from vacation - non-stop stories, some photos, lots of gifts, a good supper & wine. So much fun. Gift-giving is his love language, I've come to realize. They've headed off to her place now ... so silence...

    How was church today?

    Oh my goodness - that's awful to have your clothing absorbing odors from a neighbour's smoking - I would really hate that. I wonder if an aromatic cedar wall in the closet would help?

    Spontaneous local culture sightings and experiences

    When I knew them he wasn't mayor - I think he taught high school maybe. Really nice family & I understand he was pretty well respected when mayor.

    What to serve....

    Beef or chicken stew made in the crock pot with good hearty bread. A pasta dish with alfredo or other non-tomato sauce & a big green salad. (serve the dressing on the side so the person who doesn't want vinegar can pass; or use lemon juice in the dressing instead of vinegar.) Beef or chicken...

    Spontaneous local culture sightings and experiences

    Today I was disturbed by a lunchtime encounter in Hamilton. I was there at a conference; went out & picked up a shwarma for lunch & decided to eat in the park near city hall as it was a lovely sunny day. As I approached city hall, I saw there was some sort of demonstration going on. Turned...

    Would the mayor have been Dom Cardillo? Was my neighbour - I used to babysit their kids :-)

    Rest well Northwind ... sending prayers and gentle hugs, and some virtual chicken soup, and some dog biscuits for you know who.

    Sorry to hear about your recent news & upset ChemGal. Kay offers wisdom ... a blessing to have somebody like that around at such a time. This is such a great community. I'm away from home for a couple of nights - participating in the ReImagine gathering in Hamilton. So many interesting &...

    No turkey for us - leftover pasta & a great fresh salad on Sunday; last night a vegetarian middle-Eastern meal with friends. Sunny & cold here this morning - I better go get dressed & get off to my nordic walking group! I'm a bit late already.

    Looks good Kimmio! Fun to put together bits & pieces to create a new look in a new space.

    Pet "parents" - when & how did this become a thing?

    ah Naman - so nice to see you drop by - best Thanksgiving wishes to you and yours. I agree - I do think we form bonds with animals - and some of them may do so with us too. I'm guessing those bonds may be somewhat different for those living in rural areas, on farms, where I sense a lot of...
