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

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

November Empties

This was an unusual haul of empties this time around, mostly because there were more cardboard packaged items in this month's collection than plastic or glass packaged items like normal. Which I thought was interesting, I don't know if it really means anything, is just interesting. I've also been thinking about doing a big summary … Continue reading November Empties

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

October in Review

I was so surprised when I was going through my camera roll for this at how many hiking/outdoorsy pics there were. This is my most outdoorsy month ever in my life. It was really nice though, we had pretty great weather for October in Northwestern Ontario. We don't have any snow and I am extremely … Continue reading October in Review

September Empties

If I have noticed anything writing these posts it's that I follow a cycle, extreme waste reduction to hyperconsumption to feeling guilty about spending so much on beauty products and consuming so much plastic packaging, to not buying anything and then it starts again. And I am definitely in a not buying anything phase, even … Continue reading September Empties

September in Review

September was a fantastic month, an absolutely insanely busy month but it was so fun and fulfilling and I really needed it. Also today is Truth and Reconciliation Day, if you live on settled land please take the time today to think about the loss and suffering that Indigenous Peoples endured for colonization to occur … Continue reading September in Review

What I Read in August

After an insane month of reading in July, it's only fitting I guess that I only read one book in August. Beautiful World, Where Are You - Sally Rooney Overall, I'm still not certain what I think of Sally Rooney's books, I have now read Normal People and this book, and I'm not sure if … Continue reading What I Read in August

August Slipped Away

August is such a weird month, I think especially since I now live so far north and have such clear memories of how miserable I was this past winter August felt like there was so much pressure. To do things, to have fun, to go to the beach, to swim. But then it was also … Continue reading August Slipped Away
