Yes, I am extremely happy this morning. The storm has come and gone, I did not lose power and did not get much snow before it all turned to heavy rain. The winds were wicked (80+km) and today I am faced with a driveway of ice so will be busy s... Read more

Should I be happy today? After all a very nasty storm is bearing down on us, at 10:20am it has just started to snow and blow and by this evening a lot of us will be in the dark. That's winter here and because it's an annual event we all have r... Read more

A Cape Breton writer (Lesley Crewe) offers her take on New Year's resolutions and I couldn't agree more. She suggests that for most of us our resolve to lose weight, join the gym , quit smoking, etc. will fly right out the window after the thir... Read more

And so it begins, a new year with infinite possibilities but only if we look for them and pursue them. That chance to be engaged makes me happy, the opportunity to set goals and bring them to fruition. But we all need fun in our lives to balan... Read more

Big decision for me today as I am a news wonk. I turn CBC radio on first thing in the morning to catch the latest news and weather BUT CBC in its wisdom no longer gives local weather forecasts on the hour and after today's news of fire deaths i... Read more

A holiday truce at my bird feeders; a ring necked pheasant and a red squirrel sharing the same space. Even they recognize when it's too cold to bicker. Plan was to take a short walk(s) with my dog and then hit the stationary bike BUT instead ... Read more
One "Happy" Daily

A column in a local paper today issued a challenge to do or find one happy thing every day for one hundred days in a row. Seems like a worthwhile endeavour to me. #1: I riddled my closet of all things coloured GREY today. Perfectly good clot... Read more

Wednesday morning a bag of weekly flyers is left in my driveway; I check them for sales, not that I need anything, but occasionally there is something that catches my eye. Today was no different except they were full of BOXING DAY SPECIALS! It... Read more

Three weeks and we will be in a new year. I look forward to that new beginning, glad that the "funky months" of 2017 will be past (October, November, December). I crave the simplicity of the months ahead, no more "shop 'til you drop" nonsense,... Read more
