Ice fishing on the Kennebecasis River The frozen Saint John River Ferry crossing the frozen Kennebecasis River … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday ~ Our Visit to the SPCA {w/Linky}

SPCA 3

This Wordless Wednesday is a little wordy ~ My daughter and I recently went on a visit to our local SPCA to drop off a few items from their "wish list".  I had such mixed emotions during my visit.  I was very happy these innocent animals had been rescued, are safe and hopefully will soon be adopted by a loving  individual or family.  However, I was sickened that the need to rescue these poor little creatures from an abusive situation even exists! In my head I cannot even begin to fathom how … [Read more...]

Wives’ tales say that the scent of a groaning cake being baked in the birth house helps to ease the mother’s pain. Some say if a mother breaks the eggs while she’s aching, her labour won’t last … [Read more...]
