Back from Disney!

Not, of course, that we’ve actually been in Disney all this time since I last posted here (I wish!). Deadlines and then the holidays managed to consume me for most of December – and I hadn’t signed on for NaBloPoMo so had nothing to push me to keep blogging (stuff like that works with me [...]

November Wrap-up

It’s the end of November already – this month has passed by so fast, and I’ve both accomplished a ton of stuff, and not done everything I’ve wanted to do.
NaNoWriMo: I didn’t reach my 50,000 words on the one hand, but my initial goal was never to do that. It was to simply get [...]

One Word Answers Meme

I’m a little blogging goddess today, so many posts! But today’s really been my first chance to get out and about reading everyone’s blogs and visiting links since before that whole deadline crunch thing happened, and I’m telling you – it feels so good!

It’s been a tiring day today, and it occurred to me that the day after some deadline or other is met, finished, can be like that. You feel drained. But those words didn’t feel very good to me.
I like renewal better. I [...]

Saturday Morning Musings

It’s a rainy Saturday morning here, which I rather like – it reminds me of Vancouver, where I grew up. I’m used to misty rainy gray days, where every moment contains a hint of dusk. To me, dusk is such a magical time, when I have a chance to just sit and enjoy it.
Decluttering … [...]

The Big Draw – Day 11; What I’ve Learned This Week

It’s the Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in Canada, and our house has been smelling so good all day, with that lovely scent of roast turkey. The only problem? We had salmon for dinner! Not that the salmon was a problem – it was delicious – but my taste buds were hankering for turkey (but ask [...]

Film: Who Does She Think She Is?

I just came across a post at Creative Construction about a new film called Who Does She Think She Is? It’s about creative women and motherhood, and the choices that most mothers have, at one time or another, felt the pressure to make.
The film opens on October 17 – you can check out the [...]

Saturday Morning Thoughts & Links: The Magic of Uncertainty

This morning I feel like I’ve come home, back to a space that I haven’t been in for a while, a wide-open, welcoming, warm, loving and creative space.
Earlier this week, I decided I was going to be the Me who has a magical life. From there, I came easily and effortlessly back to BelleEnchanted. [...]
