It’s been so long … I forgot how to post.

I have to think about this…. soooo that tells me it has been far, far to long.

I started making Bento lunches for my son this year.  Part of my ambitious plan to make lunch everyday for the entire school year. lol.  It all began with this one.  I post them each day – mostly to keep me honest. 🙂

Since some people refuse to join FB (and I’m sure that’s a good thing) I’ll be posting these here too.

Cop out?  Maybe.  But I have to start somewhere…

Happy Birthday Charles Darwin.

If you get a chance to pick up a copy of the recent National Geographic to read a fascinating article about Darwin.  Plus tomorrow is Darwin Day

Science Centre IMAX

We almost didn’t make it to an advance screening of “The Alps“this morning.  Entirely my fault, I’m just not a morning person.

I expected to enjoy this movie, instead I loved it. 

The imagery is breathtaking, reminding me of what an amazing world we live in.

 If I recall a line from the movie correctly.  ‘The Alps have always attracted strong people”.  I thought to myself  ‘Slightly crazy too’.  In a good way though.

I can skydive, climb a mountain never!  I felt delicious terror just watching this film.  This is an experience I would never had except for another person’s obsession with climbing the North Face of the Eiger. 

I highly recommend that you see this film.  It is awe inspiring.

I’ll be getting an email with a family & friends discount coupon in the next few days.  If you’re interested, leave a comment or email me.

Honesty? Huh.

I’m catching up on the blogs I read.  So I strolled over to Marissa’s and here lurked ten honest tidbits.

Hmmm.   Unlike Marissa I experienced no issue with what to write.  Just exactly how honest should I be? 

Black and white?  Room for shades of grey?  Is grey still the truth?  Brutally?  Painfully?  Serious?   Silly?

You decide.

1. I would give my own life for my son. Unreservedly.

2. I went to a very dark, dark place in the latter part of 2008. I’ve no desire to go back.

3. I compulsively collect journal after journal.  I’ve not been able to truly, freely and honestly write in a journal for almost 20 years.  If I did, it was destroyed.  Yet, I still keep buying them.

4.  I unabashedly love the song ‘Barbie Girl‘  by Aqua.  Cringe if you will.  I don’t care.

5. I am scared to send my secret(s) to Post Secret. What if you recognize me?

6. I didn’t call my own Mother for her final Mother’s Day.  How’s that for evil?

7. I have been a terrible friend in 2008.

8. The vivid, bright and best points of 2008 were always with my friends.  Ironic?

9.  I always colour in the lines.

10.  I made a bucket list.  I’ll share if you will.

12.  2008 was the first birthday in 6 years that I couldn’t care less.

13.  I couldn’t wait to kick 2008’s ass to the curb.

I will tag people.  You go Martha,  June, Sandy, Carmi, Susan, Ronna, Sharon
