Saturday morning musings

We are looking at a lovely Saturday again and I cannot help but take my time to enjoy my coffee and the hope that the day may bring 🙂

I woke up early today which helps with my “taking time” routine. When there are enough hours in front of us, it is easier to relax, is it not?

I have a number of things to do today and I was thinking whether having lots of things to do is a good or a not-so-good idea. At one hand it helps me with boredom (what am I gonna do if there is nothing scheduled?) and on the hand hand it also makes me feel like rushing to start and complete things. Good kind o f stress? I will leave it to you to decide.

Our weather forecast says that we will have a snow storm or something like this today. Canada has been embracing an early winter the way I know and I am not surprised that our shoveling season will be open as of today. Nevertheless, I keep thinking that we would usually not get snow until after January, except last year we have had a couple of snow days in December. I got to remember that through a post of mine from last year – how wonderful that is? Our blogs are serving as a great memory books for us. At least for me. What a magnificent tool.


I think I just completed 3 years with this blog. What a great evolution I have had; I wrote poems, short stories, ranted, shared great news, reflected a lot, started bread, pickle, and jam adventures all in front of your eyes. I have also got to know some of you through your posts and interactions at the comments area. I learnt, I got inspired to change/improve, and I laughed and sometimes I cried with you. Virtual communities exist and change us in many ways.


Now it is time for me to start cleaning the home and hopefully start the pickling and jamming 🙂 I will be trying strawberry marmalade today from frozen fruits and I cannot wait to see how it will turn out 🙂

  1. Slept in and woke up to new snowflakes. I didn’t clear the snow we got yesterday though I did have someone come on Thurs to shovel the 2nd big snowfall of the week. Now I don’t want to go and do the grocery shopping I need to do. So, I’m going to go downstairs, make and drink my coffee and contemplate my plans for the weekend. Not a big fan of the white stuff.

    1. when I was a kid it was a rare treat where we would play with the snow, make snow men/women, and sledge. then I came to Canada and this white stuff made my life hard with ice and slips. I gotta admit I love seeing it snowing light and easy. shoveling and being outside in snow are not something I look forward to either! i hope you have a great mug of coffee that will keep you warm and forget about the outside 🙂

      1. Thank you. I’ve lived in Canada for 55 yrs after coming from the former Yugoslavia. Admittedly my dislike of the stuff started with driving a car and being a home owner. I thought it was great when I didn’t have to worry about either of those things. Being a grown up isn’t fun sometimes. 🙂

          1. I was talking to a friend of my parents’ a few days ago and she mentioned her monthly rent payment. Made me SO happy that I’d paid off the mortgage 5 yrs ago. Even though house insurance and taxes aren’t cheap either. And then there’s home maintenance. But, it’s YOURS.

                1. once a candidate for mayor had visited my home. he asked whether there was anything I would like to ask from the city. I asked for a handymen/women registry for small repairs/jobs that a handy person can do. a win-win situation 🙂 not sure whether it will happen. but I want to see it happening!!! 🙂

                    1. I know someone who does stuff around the house (like checking the roof, cutting tree branches etc.) he is a reasonable and dependable person, so I am happy so far. but we can always need other people. none of my friends, it seems, are handy :))))
