She’s Going to be Trouble

This past weekend our house turned into a war zone. Alright, perhaps “war zone” is a bit of an understatement, but I’m not sure how else to describe the mood around here when the Leafs play the Habs. Oh sure, it’s just hockey and really has no bearing on real life, but that doesn’t mean … Continue reading

In Which Saarah Eats Time

I’ve come up with the best excuse for missing work. Seriously, if this doesn’t get me out without being reprimanded, I don’t know what will. We were eating supper on Monday evening, as we do most nights. The supper in question was stir fry with peanut sauce. Delicious, right? I even found purple cauliflower at … Continue reading

A Canadian Heritage Moment

Upstairs Hockey and Our Magical Basement

There are two sorts of hockey played in our household; Basement Hockey, consisting of regular sticks and a classic orange hockey ball. We use a clothes-drying rack turned on its side as a net, and a goal crease made from hockey tape on the cement floor. Then there’s Upstairs Hockey, consisting of small hockey sticks … Continue reading

The NHL All-Snore Game

Like many hockey fans, we could really live without the All-Star weekend. I suppose the Skills Competition is kind of fun to watch, but the game itself is about on par with a pre-tournament game between Canada and Latvia, but without any sense of national pride. We’ll always end up watching it, but we wont … Continue reading
