January in Review

January has been such a great month, 2023 seriously has a lot to live up to. It was so fun, I spent so much time with people I love, and got to do so many things and it was just a great time. I started off the New Year with a hot mat Pilates class … Continue reading January in Review

December Empties: The End

Okay, that's a bit dramatic, but this is the last monthly empties post. I do have to say that it is already feeling very freeing to not have to keep my empty containers. I just clean them out and dispose of them according to my municipality's recycling instructions. It feels weird that it feels so … Continue reading December Empties: The End

December in Review

This may have been my busiest December ever. In university I always assumed that after uni December would be a nice relaxing month, because you wouldn't have exams anymore that you needed to be studying for on top of Christmas prep. That was an incorrect assumption. I was home for 6 days this month between … Continue reading December in Review

What I’m Buying in December

It is so interesting to make this post this month, because despite it being December, famously one of the spendiest months of the year. I'm not planning on buying that much? Of course, I didn't put the Christmas presents I'm buying in the collage (I know my sister sometimes reads this, I don't think anyone … Continue reading What I’m Buying in December

Financial Fitness Check-in: November 2022

November was not nearly as bad as I was expecting it to be, I really thought I had totally blown my budget. There was just so much unexpected work travel, and while I get reimbursed for it, it still ends up costing money in food and then you're tired the next day so you buy … Continue reading Financial Fitness Check-in: November 2022

What I Read in November

Happy December! I only finished one book this month, I'm nearly halfway through Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid right now, because I want to read it before the mini-series comes out (hopefully sometime next year) and I enjoyed Malibu Rising and Evelyn Hugo so much. I don't know why I do … Continue reading What I Read in November

November in Review

I don't have any way to prove it, but I feel like I must have set a record for places visited in the Province of Ontario this month, and distance traveled while staying in the province. I went from Sioux Lookout to Kasabonika Lake, back to Sioux Lookout, to Wunnumin Lake back to Sioux Lookout, … Continue reading November in Review

November State of the Union

We're nearly half-way through November now and it's been a great month so far. It feels really nice to be busy, as much as it is a bit overwhelming sometimes. It's also so far, been a cozy month, maybe it's because I was sick, but I've spent a decent amount of time cuddled up on … Continue reading November State of the Union

October Empties

This was a month of a slight pivot back to lower waste hygiene products. Which felt good to be back to my normal routine. Also, in September I actually made use of the fact that I've been holding on to my empty containers for the whole year and used some of the smaller ones to … Continue reading October Empties

What I Read in October

In October, I did the seemingly impossible, I read two non-fiction books. Which is (and was) nearly impossible. I was lucky that Bourdain is so readable and fun because Miss Dior was a tome. It took nearly 7 weeks of lunch hour reading to finish it. Miss Dior by Justine Picardie This was a very … Continue reading What I Read in October
