Happy Anniversary to me! 10 years in business today.

Wow, where has the last 10 years gone?  It seems like only yesterday that I walked through the doors of the Toronto Business Development Centre to apply for the Self Employment Assistance Program.  We were told to turn our phones off but Siobhan was expecting to give birth to Jaden any second so I refusedContinue reading “Happy Anniversary to me! 10 years in business today.”

Witchy Woman Mach II by Liz Saunders

What’s another name for Witchy Woman?  I need a moniker for Witchy Woman Mach II.  Madam Woo?  Helga Hufflepuff? I thought my previous naturopath came up with some interesting ideas…take Indigo at dusk or dawn when the sky is indigo…but WW Mach II has a whole new level of weird for me. On Thanksgiving MondayContinue reading “Witchy Woman Mach II by Liz Saunders”

Customer Service par Excellence!

Some time ago, I blogged about an example of customer service that stood above the crowd:  when Jennifer of Oust-A-Mouse offered me a second unit, “on loan”, to help battle my cottage mouse problem.  Well, I am extremely happy to report that I have not seen any evidence of mice…no actual critters, no tell taleContinue reading “Customer Service par Excellence!”

Of course you don’t need a wheelchair! by Liz Saunders

I don’t need a wheelchair?  Are you kidding?  What else can go wrong? No matter who I asked prior to my surgery “Am I going to need a wheelchair?” the answer was categorically “no”.   Clearly none of these people have had a total toe bi-lateral arthroplasty.  I was told I would need crutches to getContinue reading “Of course you don’t need a wheelchair! by Liz Saunders”

Watercolours – I have a whole new respect for my friend Wendie

This week at art class was water colours.  All I can really say about watercolours is that I have a whole new respect for my friend Wendie. Kathy made it look so easy!  I did not find it to be so.                          

Water or Mice: opening the cottage 2013

What a glorious weekend for opening the cottage!  Sunny, temperature in the 20’s, no bugs to speak of and ridiculously high water levels.  Apparently it’s a 100 year high water level. The road from town to the cottage is actually closed unless you’re “local” which everyone out here is because it’s the only road inContinue reading “Water or Mice: opening the cottage 2013”

Creating a Safe Environment by Liz Saunders

On Friday I wrote about a nasty experience during Jaden’s swimming lesson.  At the time, I was told I needed to speak to the Crescent Town Club’s General Manager, A.N.   Today, since I had to go to Olivia’s and feed feline horribilous, I thought “I’ll kill two birds with one stone and see if A.N.Continue reading “Creating a Safe Environment by Liz Saunders”

Swimming Lessons Shouldn’t be Dangerous! by Liz Saunders

A few years ago, Daughter Olivia moved into the complex known as Crescent Town.  At the time, I was worried because when I was her age, Crescent Town was not a place I would have even gone, let alone lived.  But she’s been very happy there and she’s never been mugged. So last fall, afterContinue reading “Swimming Lessons Shouldn’t be Dangerous! by Liz Saunders”

Art is a Messy Business! by Liz Saunders

Today I walked into class late (they would reduce the Woodbine bridge to 1 lane in the direction I was going on today of all days) and was extremely pleased to see that Reissa had joined us!   Yay!  And she did really well for her first day, although much like Elizabeth and I on ourContinue reading “Art is a Messy Business! by Liz Saunders”
