  • September 16, 2023

    We moved furniture today. Of course, I woke up late so we were delayed getting started. The plan was to go over last night to get things ready but we never made it. I fell asleep after work. I was out. Cold. By the time I woke up it was too late to do much…

  • August 25, 2023

    I woke up today with a lot on my mind. Well, a lot of ideas about what to do with the workshop. I’m having trouble keeping things straight so I had to start a list. I managed to write down two items before forgetting about it, as well. To help me move forward, I decided…

  • My Favourite Drinking Glass

    My Favourite Drinking Glass

    Visiting my folks always brings back a flood of memories. This isn’t the house that I was born into but it is the one that I left. Even still, it’s full of things that remind me of all of my past.

  • Letting Sh*t Go

    Letting Sh*t Go

    I woke up with vomit on the duvet. It was over my feet so I knew that it wasn’t mine because I haven’t done yoga in nearly ten years. Riel had curled up in between my legs, slightly higher up on the bed than where he had emptied his stomach. It was only a few…

  • My Car is Now Registered in Ontario *tear*

    A little while back I wrote about my experience at the registry, while getting my Ontario driving licence. Well, folks, it arrived today, along with my insurance papers. I also got my plates today.

  • Getting My Driving Licence, Again

    I got my first car on March 17, 2007. Eight years later, to the day, I gave up my Alberta licence for an Ontario one. It made me a little sad.

  • My Maa Helped Me Move to Toronto

    I made it. After two, rather long, weeks, I’m finally settled in Toronto. I dropped my mom off at the airport this evening, after her two-week stay. You see, she came out to help me move.

  • Eight Trips to Toronto, in Ten Days

    Eight Trips to Toronto, in Ten Days

    Over the last ten days I have made eight trips to Toronto. For those of you who are counting, one way is approximately 134 km (according to the signage on the highway, and depending where in the city I’m going), which can take anywhere from one and a quarter to over-three hours. During the summer months,…

  • Upcoming: Tales Of and From Mariposa

    During the last week, I have been looking for apartments in Toronto. It’s never fun looking for apartments, especially in Toronto. The pictures on the websites often don’t match the actual state of the unit, and the listed prices are, at best, relatively close but still less than what you’re actually going to pay each…

  • Two-Year Anniversary

    Tomorrow, June 4, 2014, marks an interesting anniversary in my life. It was two years ago tomorrow that I decided to finally move to Toronto, and start making a life for myself.

  • Draft Posts

    Draft Posts

    Sometimes, I sign into my WordPress account. While there, I check my stats, which are steady at zero views, and put together some notes about posts that I want to write. In three days – on May 1, 2014 – I’ll finally have the time to sit down and actually write something that I’ll be…

  • Welcome to Mariposa

    Welcome to Mariposa

    Last week was a bit busy, but I’m now stationed in Mariposa. I still have to make my way down to Toronto every so often, but that’s not much of a bother. Here is what happened last week.
