Rosanne-Coloured Glasses

There’s nothing wrong with thinking the best of people. That is, until they prove you wrong. All along, I had a feeling I’d live to regret praising the reboot of Roseanne’s now-cancelled sitcom.

It’s Not Easy Being Clean

When I moved into the house almost ten years ago, I ordered a large wardrobe from Ikea. It helped solve the lack-of-closet-space issue that many houses of this era have. If our home was a person, it would be getting its pension and planning its shopping trips for senior’s days. 

Thankful Thursday – My Mama

I call her Mamasita, Matka, Ma, Mom and other variations on the same theme. And when I’m serious about something, I use her full name: Mother! It’s the equivalent of her using my full name when I was a kid. Strikes terror in her heart! (not really)

Take The Last Train to McAdam

As we explored the St. Stephen-St. Andrews-Calais area last week, we took the advice of anyone who offered it. If someone said we should go see something, we went. That included my brother’s suggestion that we head up to McAdam and see the old train station.

The Thin Red Line

There are places in North America where you can stand in Canada and the US simultaneously. A massive, historic home straddles Stanstead, Quebec and Plain, Vermont, for example. You can enter the house from both countries. 

Dear Visitor, my site is currently undergoing a make-over. In the meantime I apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. Yours Truly, Lisa
