~ CLOSED ~ Perfect Gifts for Dads and Grads {w/Giveaway}

005 edited

I don't know about you, but June is a busy month in our household! We have birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate, not to mention the all important dads and grads! It's often sometimes tough to come up with a gift that will be meaningful to the recipient but yet doesn't tax the brain or the bank too much. I find I can usually count on Hallmark to take some of the guess-work out of my shopping. They seem to always have the perfect gifts for every occasion, including Perfect Gifts for Dads … [Read more...]

Ask the Pharmacist

  As I am sure you are aware, the value of the Canadian dollar has been rapidly decreasing. For years, the Canadian and US dollar had been roughly at par, fluctuating a few cents above and below. But that is no longer the case.  The value of the Canadian dollar has decreased, and we recently hit a 30 year low!   Because of the low value of the Canadian dollar, many people have altered their travel plans and are foregoing US for other travel destinations, such as the … [Read more...]

Canadian Beef Twitter Party

This summer has been so beautiful, I want it to go on and on. I can hardly believe we are already more than halfway through August. However, instead of getting down about the approaching end to summer, I plan to make the most of the remaining sunny days and long evenings! It is so nice to be able to spend lots of time outside. We love most outdoor activities like gardening, camping, travel, family dinners and of course barbecuing! We have a brand new shiny barbecue this year and have put … [Read more...]

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my love for camping and the great outdoors. If I had my way (which I don't always get...lol), I would be camping every vacation and every weekend in the summer. I always tell my family that I was born one hundred or one hundred and fifty years too late. I would have loved traveling the country in a covered wagon and settling in a small house by a river, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. If you love spending your summer vacation in the great outdoors, … [Read more...]

There is No Tooth Fairy for Pets ~ This and Other #DentalPetFacts

#DentalPetFacts

About eighteen months ago, we decided our lone (and lonely) kitty needed a friend, so we adopted a beautiful little cat from a cat rescue program. This poor little kitty had endured horrendous abuse and was little more than skin and bones.  Although she was full-grown, the vet estimated her age to be about two years, she only weighed just a little over 3 pounds. I am happy to tell you, she is now the most loving (and loved) pet on the planet! She has more than doubled her weight and now … [Read more...]

Have I Found My One & Only? (w/Atlantic Canada Contest)

Café Santo Domingo

Anyone who knows me can attest to my great love for coffee. We often grind our own beans and always make a 12 cup pot to start our day. (Sometimes we even make a pot twice) Yes, you read that correctly, 12 - 24 cups!  However, I don't drink it all, my husband works from home and I share it with him! I am a bit ashamed to say we haven't been loyal to any one brand of coffee.  I'm not sure why that would make me feel ashamed. I guess I feel by our age we should have settled down with our … [Read more...]
