Let the wind whisk away the spring air




Downtown Love
I've been slowly venturing out to see the specialty shops downtown and I love it. I've been running the trails along the Ottawa River, it's nice to find new spots and switch it up.Still need to visit the Farmers Market - maybe next weekend. 

My daughter and I checked out Wilkies Fresh Baked Bread and they're amazing. The prices are decent and they have fresh varieties every day, along with soups and sandwiches, oh and fresh honey.






 I'm so excited to Garden this year, last spring we found out we were posted so I had to stop what I was dong, but this year is mine :) My husband bought me a walk in greenhouse. I love it but it was bought because one of my cats keep eating the veggies :P So far I have 3 types of Lettuce, Snap Peas, Bell Peppers, and Yellow & Green Peas. I'm late on getting my Tomatoes and Cucumbers ready but I'm going to finish those today after planting the rest of my Raspberry bushes. :) So excited




The first trimmings of the lettuce :)

Lately we've been doing alot of crafts and getting outside prepping our garden :) I've been testing products which is a lot of fun, esp because they're free. I'm doing the new secret deodorant Cool Waterlilly & OLAY's new Daily exfoliating with sea salt. Ill show a couple of products I completed before this one.

Spring 2017



                  It's been awhile, we moved back to ON 9 months ago and I'm continuing to build a community. After being posted, it always takes me awhile to establish a new routine and a new normal. I'm back on track with my workouts and it feels great to feel more like myself.
     The most important thing is to replace/recreate the things you loved "at home" in your new home and it sounds easier than it is to complete. Even if it is your new coffee place, new running trails or even new places to consider your Day Off activities.

     My table these days like usual include;

- Fruit
- 2017 Agenda ( favorite thing about starting a new year) 
I need some new books to read so a friend of mine suggested novels by Canadian Author Ami Mckay, I bought Birth House and the Virgin Cure - Ill let you know how they are.
Stuff for a caterpillar on a leaf craft !






       It's almost Spring!!!! So excited I love getting my veggies and flowers ready for the season and since I have a little helper I usually buy her her own "Veggie Garden".

New Adventures

 I survived the move...

A new home but same table 




Moving provinces can be difficult, I find the best thing to do first is check out your community for things to get involved in or to help you find a new routine that shadows your old one ; even if it's finding a new hair stylist or a new place to find fresh Veggies.
  My husband is going to be gone a lot more, so I am going to fill out the emerg. child care booklet, there are some new paints and coloring books for my daughter. 
My health folder because I see my surgeon Thursday :) which also means my baby will be going to a new Daycare - I'm hoping it goes well. - thats her dinosaur lunch bag :P
The Adidas bag used to be my old gym bag (perfect condition) because I find I take so many things back and forth to the car I might as well put them all in one bag.






Tuesday - We visited the library and it is an awesome one ! :D I never visited when I lived here the first time, they also have awesome child programs and activities.  Make a list of all the places in the community you can check out, you'd be surprised about how much there is to do.
