Happy Monday, blogging friends! What's up with everyone? I really don't have anything new to report on our end. It's been very quiet. But at least the weather is pleasant. Last night the most amazing man in the world and I went for a lengthy walk. With freshly fallen snow from earlier that day together with mild weather, it was quite magical outdoors. We really enjoyed the crisp air and the leisurely stroll.

It's just going to be the two of us this Christmas. We want to respect the rules and not contribute to the problem. COVID cases have risen in my small city and have exploded in some larger cities across the country. You know what else has risen? Anti mask protests and health guidelines resistance. I'm looking at you Alberta. What the hell's going on out there?

Another thing that is growing is the misinformation being posted on Facebook from people I know, including the conspiracy theory that Bill Gates created this virus and a whole bunch of other stupidities. OHMYFLIPPIN' goddess, seriously? Oh yeah, sure, I'm  not going to believe information provided by credible sources such as scientists, healthcare workers, epidemiologists, the WHO, the Public Health Agency of Canada, the CDC, etc., but I am going to believe obscure and ludicrous nonsense shared by Joe Schmoe who received his PhD from Google University or by someone who runs some rinky-dink website. UGH...

So here's a stocking stuffer for those of you who might need it in dealing with these types of people:

Okay, rant over. If you have Netflix, I HIGHLY recommend that you watch The Surgeon's Cut. It's a documentary-style series about four very talented and groundbreaking surgeons. It is amazing!

And now, let's get to the funny stuff, shall we? I hope they make you smile and I also hope you have a wonderful day ahead.

Happy new week, everyone! How is everyone doing? What are you up to? What's new? What's keeping you busy? What's going on? Not much to blab about on our end but I am happy to report that my back pain is gone. I am feeling much better!

As soon as my sorry carcass wasn't an issue anymore, I dragged out my new Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker (a mouthful) that we'd picked up right before my aches and pains began, and put it to use. We picked it up at an amazing price when we were out shopping for a few things. I hemmed and hawed about getting it to replace our slow cooker that recently died but finally decided to go ahead. I'm so pleased I did. What a machine! It does everything but sing and dance. Does anyone have one of these machines?

This week we've only focused on watching This Is Us on Netflix. We've been really enjoying it. It's emotionally heavy but in a good way. And the acting is terrific. A couple of days ago I noticed the series The Surgeon's Cut that profiles four ground-breaking surgeons from around the world, so I think we'll start that way soon. I'm curious to see what it's all about.

And that's it for now, blogging pals. Now let's get to the funny stuff. Have an amazing week ahead!

Happy December, everyone! I know we're already a week into it but this is the first post of the new month for me. I hope it's a good one for all of you. What's everyone been up to? It's been quiet for us and I haven't done all that much. Part of that is because of the back pain I've been dealing with for a few days. Not sure how it came about but here we are. This morning it was a tiny bit better, so I hope I'm on the road to recovery.

So this week we enjoyed watching Diana: In Her Own Words (documentary), Hillbilly Elegy (movie) and Becoming (an inspiring documentary about Michelle Obama's life). We're also into the series This Is Us ( (a romantic family drama that follows the lives and families of two parents and their three children in different time frames), which is amazing! It is heartwarming and emotional. Loving it. Have any of you seen it?

We decided we're not having a family gathering for Christmas this year. The COVID cases are rising and we haven't even gone through the holidays yet. I shudder to think what's coming up in the next few weeks. The most amazing man in the world don't want to contribute to the problem, and really, it's just one year; a small sacrifice on our part.

Before I get to this week's funny stuff, I have to share this one. Made me laugh out loud!

Now, shall we get to the (holiday) funny stuff? Yeah, let's do that. Enjoy, and have a wonderful day ahead.
