Can you believe there are some pet cats in the world who have never had catnip? A travesty! Every animal deserves an escape from daily life or a pick me up.  Elephants have alcohol they ferment themselves by burying fruit in the ground and digging it up later to get […]

Ugly mug

The husband and I have started a small collection of personalized mugs. It started with Edmonton Oilers mugs and Team Canada mugs. Then when our dear bug dog Dexter passed away, we got a personalized mug with a photo of his from our wedding and a few sayings that reminded […]

Uni-ball pens

I have been in love with these pens for close to twenty years. They’re smooth-rolling gel pens from uni-ball. Perfect for long flowing writing sessions or even for signing checks, as the ink is not eraseable. The only thing is if you touch it when it’s still wet with your […]

Kool-Aid flavour drops

One of my favourite drinks I’ve discovered of late is Kool-Aid flavour drops in a can of club soda. If you’re like me, you’ve often wondered what club soda is and what the difference is between tonic water, sparkling water and club soda. Club soda has baking soda in it. […]

One of the best beauty purchases I’ve ever made is a bamboo hairbrush. My hair is currently over halfway down my back in length. My hair is very thick and strong as well. But I live in a dry climate and I try to avoid split ends when I can […]

Puppy Pads for peepeepoopoopuggypugs

My husband and I have a sense of pride, frustration, love, care and gratitude for our dogs. But when it comes to peeing and pooing, it’s more embarrassment and resignation. We use puppy pads in the house because they have the tiniest bladders and pee sooo many times in a […]

Welcome to the gated community of communal cat toilets

Our laundry room is Toilet Town for cats. It’s not my favourite place to be, but our dogs love it. Pugs have an affinity for eating poop, and our cats’ poop is no exception. Our pug Moby is a shorty and not much of a jumper, so the way we […]

Cooking fail, instant pot win

I’m not a big baker or cook. I love eating meals and baked treats, but I don’t really make them. Cooking seems to take forever and you have to clean up afterwards. I spoke with someone recently who loves to bake and feed people and she said that if you […]
