Babies – The movie

This is one of the most amazing movies I’ve seen, if you love documentaries this is a must see!!!!
A look at one year in the life of four babies from around the world, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo.The adventure of a lifetime begins…Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this film simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from birth to first steps. The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco. Re-defining the nonfiction art form, “Babies” joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

Happy Tuesday!!

What I’m Reading this week.

Thought I’d start something new on Mondays….

My Mum gave me this book by Elizabeth George over the weekend:


To this day, the low, thin wail of an infant can be heard in Keldale’s lush green valleys. Three hundred years ago, as legend goes, the frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in Keldale Abbey, where they’d hidden to escape the ravages of Cromwell’s raiders . . . . . . . give you my own little review next week. 😀

Haiku and related form

The faculty had a curling bonspiel at the East...  Love the title it’s the “related form” I’m writing here…:D 😀 😀

A little haiku
to explain my absence here
First there was working

Then curling bonspiel
lots of driving around town
The kids lost their game

But only by two
gained experience galore
still needed a tissue

Sportsmanship top-notch
Another long game today
more driving around

hope to have a win

See you on Monday
for Meatless recipes
and useless Tuesday info

Remember to Laugh loudly
Love generously
Care deeply
and most importantly
Speak kindly.

Summer under Snow

It is a chilly -23 ish this morning and that’s without the windchill….So I took my trusty little Fuji camera outside and braved the cold to take some photos

“Because I am a Canadian Girl” 😀

So not me

We Canadian Girls are Tough 😀

Yes that’s me for those of you who are wondering…

Pffffftttt I am so not telling you the truth right now!

This girl is actually from Wisconsin Crazy American Girls  😀

You’ll see by the photos we were a little late putting some things away before the snow, must have been busy filling the cooler 😀


Ahhh I love winter

When You Were My Man

I’ve decided to take a popular song by Bruno Mars and twist, tweak and morph it just a tiny little bit 🙂

“When you were my Man”

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you,
all it does is just tear me down
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
I hope one day you don’t say you should have bought me flowers and held my hand,
You should have given me more time,
When you had the chance to take me to every party ,
all I wanted to do was dance
Now I’m  dancing
But I’m dancing with another man
Your pride, your ego, your needs and your selfish ways
caused a good strong girl like me to walk out of your life
Now you’ll never, ever get to clean up the mess you made,
I hope what you’ve done doesn’t haunt you every time you close your eyes.
Although it hurts
I hope you’ll be the first to say that you were wrong
It’s much too late
To try and apologize for your mistakes
But I just want you to know
He loves to  buy me flowers
He wants to hold my hand
He enjoys giving me all his hours
When he has the chance
Takes me to every party
Cause he knows how much I love to dance
We do all the things we should have done
When you were my man…….
Here is the REAL Bruno Mars video “When I was your Man” one of my new fav’s 😀 😀
