Travel Adventure - Ottawa - Last Day

Because I needed yesterday as a Rest Day we decided we would try to get into Snowflake Kingdom this morning. That did not go well. The area directly in front of it was blocked off so we had to travel around the park to find parking, unfortunately every where we looked was full so we decided to give it a miss this year but made a promise to ourselves that we would try again another year. Only next time not on Family Day.






Build Your Own Smoothie Bowl - a helpful step-by-step guide with tons of possible combinations! #smoothiebowlWe then went looking for Brunch so that we could take our medicine. After some discussion we decided on Cora's. This is the second Cora's I've eaten in and I can honestly say the food has been great both times. I got a Smoothie bowl and it was delicious. Something to try on my own some day soon.
Cora's
After brunch we headed home. At the half-way point we had to make a pit-stop so we pulled into a Petro-Canada. I was surprised and pleased when I went in, it was like walking into one of the old general stores where they had a little bit of everything and some things I wasn't expecting like a whole hardware section and another one full of cold weather gear. It was fantastic. After a fill-up we grabbed some travel snacks and headed on home.

Thanks to the Professor I had a great weekend and have my fingers crossed that we will get a chance to go again.

Hope you enjoyed travelling with me.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Putting my best foot forward

Once a year I go get a hair cut. Tomorrow is that day.

Actually, for the last four, it has been a hair shave, that is every hair on my head was cut to an mm of its life. This year to celebrate my 59th year I decided to modify the cut a little as the hot flashes and the symptoms of menopause have been on the decline letting me hope I have finally entered Post-Menopause

I decided I was going to do some research on what kind of cut I wanted. Along the way, I learned a little bit of hairdresser speak.

I look carefully at Jamie Lee Curtis and Dame Judi Dench as they are the epitome of style for the older woman but while both cuts were interesting neither was what I wanted though Jamie Lee comes close.

I like the top layer it is short but longer than the sides so there is a little on top to play with and dress up plus it is still easy to take care of. For the sides and back, I want to go shorter. You see how the hair fades from the long top to the really short area around the ears this is w…
