I Have Magic Socks

These socks right here are magic socks. I wore them to bed one night last week. When I woke up the next morning, this is where they were. NO LONGER ON MY FEET! They were not on my bedroom floor. They were not in bed with me. They were on my body pillow, laid out …

It’s Okay to Just Survive

This time of year can be rough. Everyone is talking about their resolutions. Commercials on TV are trying to sell you a new life:  weight loss, gym memberships, etc. This does start well before the holiday season, and can be overwhelming as shit.

Where Things Sit

As I sit here and type this post, it is Thanksgiving Monday in Canada. We had a great turkey feast yesterday, after a very early morning traveling so I could run a 5k at the 25th Anniversary of the Valley Harvest Marathon. I have a lingering head cold, and was thankful I felt well enough …

Scotland Adventure Part 4: Western Highlands

Oh, the Highlands of Scotland. To really see Scotland we would have to have spent at least a month.  To see just a small part of the Highlands in the time that we did has a tease really. It just makes us want to go back for more! We did a day tour with Rabbie's …
