Quick Question, 16 May 2017

Hello hello, it’s that time again! The Quick Question- I’m gonna get to know you, you are gonna get to know me, and hopefully we all have a little fun.

Today’s question is something that may affect us all for the rest of our lives- if we are lucky (or cursed, depending on how you look at it I suppose)…

How to Grow Plants

So, this is the summer that I am going to grow a plant. Hopefully actually plantS if it all goes according to plans- I am hoping that this is the summer that I can grow five plants all on my own.

So, I’m doing my best to avoid drinking pop (aka soda… aka carbonated beverages…) currently, in my bid to take better care of myself and focus on my health. It’s tough because I do love Cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke (and Cherry Vanilla Coke) but I limit myself to when I go out for dinner, which isn’t very often. I don’t drink it that often but I do have patterns that I drink it with certain meals- it’s a harder habit to break than I thought it would be. It turns out, I’ve had to be more creative than I thought with how I’m approaching it…

Quick Question, 2 May 2017

Bright and early (or should I say dark and early, to be realistic) tomorrow morning, I will be leaving for a short trip to Banff! I’m pretty excited for reading, walking, tea-ing, and pretty much anything else I want to do, but I also have a question for you:
