Failed abysmally in 2012 on keeping up with a personal blog. Lets try it again and see what happens. A fresh year and a fresh start!
Hoping for some big personal accomplishments this year, like finally completing a major construction project for my organization. Oddly enough the thing I'm most excited about today is our recent decision to buy a veggie share in a local farm through CSA (Community Shared Agriculture). We've made a commitment (and mailed the cheques to a local farm that will in return provide us with a box of fresh veggies every week. The farm we have chosen is Taproot Farms of Port Williams NS. Our first share doesn't start until April, can hardly wait :) Feels good to support a local farmer, know where my food comes from, and decrease the ecological footprint of my food.

I opted to spend the New Year holiday in the homeland. On the way I stopped at a Tim Hortons for my ritual English Breakfast tea. I stepped up to the counter and got waited on by a guy who was likely 18 years old. I ordered my tea and handed over my Tims card. For those not blessed by such things, it's a re-loadable plastic gift card kind of thing, a necesssity in the past for someone who never carries cash in the days that Tims didn't take credit or debit cards.

Just felt the need to create a space that was mine and mine alone, and not associated with any of my numerous and varied pursuits. Hoping this will be a place to have fun, share things that interest me ( and hopefully a few other people), and invite discussion. No rules, and no sugar coating found here. Bring it! :)
