Montreal adventures

Early in the morning (very, very early in the morning) Jordan and I arose to catch the train to Montreal. Our friend Sophie had suggested taking the train there and I’m glad we did – what a comfortable way to get around! It was sad to say au revoir to Quebec City but we were … Continue reading »

Bonjour, Quebec!

Bienvenue! This month we are on a two-week vacation in Quebec. On Monday, after dropping a very unimpressed Marilyn off at the kennel, we boarded a plane for Quebec City. Soon after, we arrived at the bed and breakfast where we would spend an amazing six days. It’s called the Chateau des Tourelles, located just … Continue reading »

Among the whisperings, the champagne, and the stars

Of all the times I’ve made my friends and family treat me like a princess (and they are so obliging), my birthday this year definitely takes the cake. May 24 was my Champagne Birthday (wherein I turned 24 on the 24th), and I couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity to indulge! I kicked off the … Continue reading »

Trips, Plans, and Perpetual Winter

Hello everybody! I hope you are enjoying your lovely Spring weather. I have to resentfully report that it’s still Winter here. The sun was out the last few days, but it’s grey and cloudy again today. The snow is somehow melting despite how freezing it is outside, but I have yet to really feel like … Continue reading »

Moving house!

What a ridiculous month we’ve had. The person in the suite next to us has BEDBUGS. They are being treated for them every couple weeks (we’ve seen everything from mattresses to vacuum cleaners in the garbage bin outside) and I’m sure their lives are not fun. Fortunately, we’ve been inspected twice and nary a bedbug … Continue reading »

Thanksgiving Weekend – art and turkey

I love Thanksgiving weekend – so much good food and the weather is so perfect – and this year mine was made extra long by a trip to Edmonton. My mom had an art exhibition opening this weekend in Edmonton, as part of a series called Passages. The opening was on Saturday, so her and I … Continue reading »

“I have measured out my life in coffee spoons.”

Well hello! Every time my turn to write coincides with school starting up again, the blog grows dusty and neglected. Jordan and I have become very, very busy with the new school year. Jordan is taking five classes and (as the darling of the department) has been given research opportunities to fill his “spare time.” … Continue reading »

One year

A year ago today, the two of us drove into Regina for the first time. What a lot we’ve accomplished in the time we’ve been here! Although we’ve been fully engaged in our individual academic pursuits, we have managed to explore every corner of Regina and it’s safe to say we’ve fallen in love with the city. It’s hard not … Continue reading »

August Visitors

Good morning from Regina! I have been up since 4 am and completely unable to sleep. Love those nights. Fortunately I haven’t been on my own – two weeks ago we adopted a kitty named Marilyn, who has been keeping me company this morning! Meet Marilyn, everybody: Marilyn is a 5 year old, declawed, medium-haired … Continue reading »

Canada Day shenanigans

Happy birthday, Canada! In celebration of the fact that Saskatchewan wasn’t destroyed by all the tornadoes on Monday (phew!), we had beautiful sunny skies and +30 heat on Sunday. In case you hadn’t gathered over the course of this blog, Jordan is normally a complete grump about nice weather. Particularly when it turns my car into a convection … Continue reading »
