Six Silly Dragon Stories (from My Real Life)

I used to collect dragons. I started in high school when my grandmother purchases me a hand-blown glass dragon as a birthday gift. For awhile, everywhere I went, I came home with a new dragon. Unfortunately, any type of figure collecting is expensive, and my husband and I agree we’ve run out of places to… Read more »

A Taste of DavidsTea

I’ve spent a lot of time talking about the delicious Adiago blends (orchard herbals, green rooibos and teas of Japan) that my mother-in-law sent me for my birthday. This really opened the door to loose leaf tea for me and I’ve quickly become a fanatic. While visiting a DavidsTea at our local mall, one of… Read more »

Chrono Trigger; a Perfect Guide to Foreshadowing

Last year, a group of my favorite youtubers hosted a twenty-seven hour stream of Chrono Trigger to celebrate the game’s twentieth anniversary. Since it’s my husband’s favorite game, we both camped out as long as we could. Alas, we both needed to sleep at some point. Though my husband knows Chrono Trigger better than the… Read more »

A Taste of the Teas of Japan Sampler

Tea. I keep coming back to it. The last time we visited our local mall, I became a Frequent Steeper at David’s Tea. I just know I’m going to get along with this new arrangement. But today’s post is about the last of my Adagio sampler sets, stealth-purchased by my mother-in-law for my birthday. I… Read more »

Treasure of the B.C. Coast

While we were in Vancouver to experience the Greenheart Tree Walk and the Museum of Anthropology, we decided to visit the aquarium. Because, as I mentioned before, I’m always up for a trip to an aquarium. Since it hasn’t been that long since we visited Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto, it’s difficult not to compare the… Read more »

A Taste of the Green Rooibos Sampler

I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve started drinking loose leaf tea. It’s been a couple months and I can say with certainty it was a good choice. My tea supplies last longer and there are more options available to me. I’m starting to get the knack of how long each type of tea needs… Read more »

A Taste of the Orchard Tea Sampler

It’s been a rough week (the week I’m writing this rather than the week you’re reading it). My computer died a week ago, the day before my in-laws arrived for a week long visit. If I was going to be without a computer for a week, I guess that was the week for it to… Read more »

Under the Sea

I have a thing for jellyfish. I keep Monterey Bay Aquarium’s live jellyfish cam bookmarked for stress relief. I could probably watch jellyfish float all day and be content. (Did someone say jellyfish?) But jellyfish aren’t my only underwater loves. Aquariums are one of my favorite places to visit and I haven’t been to one… Read more »

The Local Search for Ultimate Bliss

The best way to get to know a new place is to go exploring. Though our initial months in our new town were a flurry of activity while we settled in, the summer months offered plenty of time to relax and enjoy the amazing weather. One of our favorite things to do in New Town… Read more »

Shiny and Chrome

I’ve made my feelings about Mad Max; Fury Road loud and clear; I love it. I would put it on endless repeat, if I could. We went to see it twice, which is something my husband and I rarely do. But we loved the original Mad Max, and we loved Road Warrior even more (you… Read more »
