Stepping Out of the Woods
My original goal for this blog was to do 100 things out of my ordinary routine in the course of a year. However, due to a switchover from part-time hours to full-time hours, this goal became a little less realistic. So now I am simply going to do 100 things outside of my ordinary routine, no matter how long it takes. Why? Because it's time to step out of my rather cozy comfort zone. I will try new things, explore new places, attend events, play with art, try challenging recipes, meet new people and hear their stories.
There is no limit to the ideas and I welcome them all! Please send them in and I will add them to my Hit List!

#32 For four mornings while down in The Sunshine State a couple of weeks ago, this was the view in the morning. One morning, I braved the cool ocean water and enjoyed a beautiful swim out into the greatness. It … Continue reading
On Wednesday, I arrived at the Ottawa airport, ready for 5 days of hot sun and gorgeous ocean in Florida. It took a lot of effort (and convincing) for me to organize my life in order to carve out a … Continue reading
Let’s get this out of the way. I have a confession to make. My close friends know this about me and love me anyway. When I meet someone and tell them this little tidbit about myself, I see their faces … Continue reading
For a long time I kept telling myself I should do yoga, I should meditate, I should, I should, I should. Then I remembered a self-care poster I once read: “I will not should on myself today.” Too true. So … Continue reading
