An average week: Saturday

It’s over! (My posts, at least. It’s Tuesday, so I suppose my “average week” has been over for a while.) In the next couple of days, I’ll write a bit about how the week looked, but for now, here’s my VERY exciting Saturday. Should have taken more photos of food in the evening because it…

An average week: Friday

Finally, Friday! Felt much better, but still not 100%. With the art launch that evening, I soldiered on. 6:15am – 7:15am Wake up, shower, get ready, all the usual things. 7:45am – 8:00am Stopped for a coffee at Tim Hortons. Large, too, which I usually find too much, but this morning was totally necessary. 8:00am…

An average week: Wednesday/Thursday

So sadly, I was sick yesterday. Because I was sick, I had no energy to post (boo) and so I’ve decided that it’s best to make Wednesday and Thursday one post. Wednesday 6:00am – 8:45am Wake up, do the Tuesday post, realize I don’t feel great, cross fingers. 9:00am – 10:30am Because I knew I…

Review: The Age of Hope by David Bergen

This year, as most of you know, Canada Reads has divvied up our true north strong and free into 5 regions: B.C. and Yukon, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic, and Prairies and North. Yes, Prairies and North. The team at CBC Books is fabulous, and I don’t doubt that they put a lot of thought into these…

An average week

Yes, this is a Canadian, literary blog. Having said that, I want to track the way I spend my time for a week as I feel that it would be an interesting exercise. I also have friends and family laugh when I say I’ve offered to get involved in yet another “extra curricular” claiming I…

Review: Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese

I don’t know what brought this about, but lately I can’t get enough of Canadian Aboriginal history. I think it started with Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden. Then, I read Through Black Spruce, and it changed things for me. I can’t explain it other than by saying that it suddenly made me piece together…
