I grew up in Ontario but left after university. I left for work but I am really happy that I left and had the opportunity to see and experience other parts of Canada. I went west and just continued moving in that direction, one province at a time. Being a mine engineer, I worked in another field for a few years because of the slowdown in the metals and oil market. Then the opportunity to cover a maternity leave contract in my field came across my desk and I jumped at it.
I mentioned in my last post that I would be making fat bombs to show in this post. I only made two types as I only had enough ice cube trays for two types. The first was a cheesecake flavored fat bomb. I had a quick lick of the spoon when I was done putting everything in the ice cube tray and I was able to taste the lemon and the coconut. Mine didn't turn out as pretty as the picture used in the recipe but I think they will taste fine. The recipe can be found here. The
I spent some time putting together a few breakfasts for my Keto diet. I think a lot of people find breakfast on this diet to be easy but I am not a huge fan of eggs so I definitely find it more challe nging. Part of my preparation was eggs. I made scrambled eggs and added bacon as well as mushrooms to some of the eggs. It ended up being two eggs per serving and approximately two slices of bacon. When I added mushrooms, it was roughly one mushroom, sliced. I also didn't
This tip is for anyone that is relatively new to knitting or crocheting. Or perhaps you have been doing it for a while but haven't come across this gem. Ravelry is an online community of fiber enthusiasts. To access, you have to make a membership but it is free. It has forums, patterns, reviews, and groups. If you are looking for local crafters, are trying something new and need support or want a pattern (many of which are free!), then look no further. Interested in bec
There have been multiple times in my life where I have struggled with my weight. Like many women, I do not have an overactive metabolism and it often feels like my metabolism moves at a snails pace. I am also an emotional eater. Combine those two and you get weight issues, especially during times of stress or upheaval. To make matters worse, I am on a mediation that has the side effect of weight gain and I have found it extremely difficult to lose weight. After university
Today I had the opportunity to talk to my step-daughter's class about mining and the environment. I had a great time and the students had a ton of questions - something that shows me they are interested. I talked about how the different stages of mining impact the environment as well as how that impact is managed in Canada compared to other countries. Something I talked about, that I think the teacher was even surprised about, is how grizzly bears are positively impacted b
I’ve been to Disney World twice in my life – once when I was very young and again in September 2017. During my recent trip, I spent most of my time with my daughter and my husband spent most of his time with the older kids. Understandably, the older kids weren’t satisfied with the rides that my 18-month old could go on so Daddy did the big rides with them. I really enjoyed the rides that my little girl could go on and had fun on the spinning tea cups and the Winnie the Poo
It is so challenging when you baby is sick. It can also be frustrating that the only thing you can give them as far as making them feel better is Tylenol. This tip was given to me by a fellow mom. She told me, only buy medications that are dye free. You might be thinking because some kids react badly with dyes. That might be a part of the reason but the main reason is what happens if that medication comes back up. Think of it this way - clothes, carpets, blankets and to
If any of you have been on my Facebook page, I’m sure you’ll realize that I have started my own business selling baby hats. I’ve been knitting and crocheting for so long, you might be wondering ‘why now?’ Well, it is basically because of my family. A lady I worked with had a set of twin grandbabies coming. The beginning of her daughter’s pregnancy was challenging because they weren’t sure if the two babies were in the same sac, which, if they were, meant that the pregnanc
I just want to say a quick Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. I have a new colour combination to share as well. I thought is was a bit bold, having a black base and the purple is just gorgeous (but purple is my favorite colour). Have a great day and enjoy .
