Goin on a Glamping trip!!!!

Yet another crazy week, there didn’t seem to be enough hours in the day … how cliché 😀 😀


Tonight I have been busy getting ready for a camping trip!

All the girls in the family are going, with just a couple of interruptions :D, Paul will visit on Saturday and my dear brother “Andiroo” will join us on Sunday with his three girls. 😀 😀

This will be our tent……..



But chances are it will be more like this:

How to Hull a Strawberry for Mary Anne

My fellow blogger Mary Anne is very talented in the writing department, but not so much in kitchen, apparently she does not know how to hull a strawberry…. so I thought I would post this little “how to” for her today. 😀 😀

Mary Anne commented on my post Carpe Diem

Check out her blog called Fairiesangelsnurses !!!!!

So here goes Mary Anne 😀 😀

The only problems with strawberries as I see it is that before you can use them, you have to take off their leafy green bonnets.

Hulling strawberries is not a big deal. Sure you can just lop them off at their shoulders with a paring knife, like a lot of people do, but I believe that strawberries deserve more than being unceremoniously decapitated.

There are a couple of ways to do it, you can use a strawberry huller, they cost between $2 and $3, or you can use a plastic straw. or of course your paring knife.

Watch the vide to see how it’s done.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend, I am off to the big city of Newmarket to go Grad dress shopping with my lovely mother and 4 teen and pre teen girls….oh my.
Must remember to stop a the liquor store on our way down 😀 😀 😀

A Poetry Contest


Time is quickly running out….
Papizilla has a Poetry Contest on a facebook page called   “We Drink Because We’re Poets”  .

I just entered my poem…..if you can call it that, but it is up to AngiesGrapevine standards 😀 😀

I’m drinking Bud Light
Hoping to win the poetry contest tonight
Papizilla my buddy and pal
Is great for my Moral
HE invited me to write
He must think I’m clever and  bright

So I said All right
I’ll get writing tonight
I never claimed to be a Farley Mowat
I’m Just a girl with a blog
Who owns an old sled dog

I drink Because I’m a poet
Who just doesn’t know it
I think this poem is quite good
Not sure how the ending should go
So I’m off to make some food
For I am

New profile picture……

My younger sister has posted an updated photo of me on my fathers fb page…

I was playing around with his new IPad

face warping fun


Here is another that she needed to share….this one is just well…I’m speechless, I’m the taller one wearing a dog dish on my head 😀



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 😀 😀
