A few pics and short video showing just how hard it was snowing. Looks lovely and for once wasn’t bitterly cold.

What Happens When You Just Don’t Clique?

Posted January 18, 2014 by Debra

April Reign

The internet has been fantastically effective in allowing people to communicate. While post and phones and radios did allow communication across distances, they were not as easy and accessible as such things as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr etc. are. Social networks have brought together political nations, self defined nations such as Leaf Nation and Ford […]

Facebook and Progressive Values

Posted January 15, 2014 by Debra

April Reign

I deleted my Facebook account awhile ago because I could no longer feel right with myself visiting a site which so clearly violates my principles. Complaints about misogynist groups advocating rape and other abuses towards women, groups degrading those with physical or mental handicaps were regularly met with ‘this does not violate Facebook standards’ yet […]

We’re all bloggers now

Posted December 28, 2013 by Haley-O

When you’re a blogger, you really notice how fast time flies. I used to post here once a day, and then once a week, and then twice a month. But the time between posting kept flying by so fast, so posting once a month felt the same as posting every day. I’d have that initial […]

Thankful for… Who has time for a title?

Posted October 13, 2013 by Haley-O

My dad took this photo today, and he’s been telling all his friends I’m putting it on my site — he’s very proud of me, and I’m so thankful for that. I’m also thankful that he shares his cottage with us, not only because it’s a gift to be away from the city and surrounded […]

Weight-loss tips and other published sentences

Posted March 29, 2013 by Haley-O

Forgive me, Readers, for I have sinned. Gosh, it’s been almost four months since I last blogged here. There’s actually an unpublished post I wrote about a month ago sitting in the backend. For some reason, I couldn’t bring myself to publish it. It’s called “I lost 25 pounds” — I never got around to […]

On Writing (Crap) — Adapted from my session at Blissdom Canada, Oct. 20, 2012

Posted October 24, 2012 by Haley-O

I learned my first major writing lesson when I was in graduate school studying English literature. I was a straight A+ student (nerd!) across the board, and the pressure was mounting with every assignment my professors gave me. One day, it came to a head. I was taking a course called “American Minority Literature,” and […]

An Open Letter to My Yoga Teacher

Posted October 9, 2012 by Haley-O

When I’m not writing at Today’s Parent, I’m taking much-needed time off all writing, and living life — playing with the kids, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, driving the kids around, helping them with homework, drinking tea, watching karate, watching soccer, watching dancing, reading, tweeting, Facebooking, Instagramming. I’m telling you this because something was brought to […]
