Books are flying off my shelf! Last week, I received a box with 100 copies of my new book, MOVE MORE, YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT. That box is now 50% sold! And here I thought the box would last me until the book launch in September. 📖
Thank you everyone for your support, I truly appreciate it. If you live in Ottawa and you’d like to purchase a copy from me, drop me a line and we’ll arrange it! And if you’re further afield, you can order it on Amazon.
Home-Grown Issues: The impacts of home-grown marijuana and legalization — Many Canadians are awaiting this July 2018 with much anticipation, as Bill C-45 will allow the legalization of marijuana, including their ability to grow up to 4 plants within their residence. However, without the proper protections and awareness in place this new legislation could cost home owners thousands, or even their mortgage. Check out my blog to learn more about how the legalization of marijuana may effect you... Link in bio 😉
Today’s hot and humid and rainy weather had me craving Asian food! 💦 Although soup seems like an odd choice, the spiciness of @bonappetitmag’s kimchi tofu stew (part of their Never Fail series!) really hits the spot in this weather 🌶🌶🌶 I used double the amount of kimchi, and also added zoodles to mine for a bit of green ✌🏼🥒

And in another episode of “O’Hare Kicks Phil In The Nutz”, my flight from Ottawa (YOW) to Chicago (ORD) was diverted to South Bend, IN, because of high air traffic and weather. We couldn’t deplane at first because they wanted to see if we could still fly out. Now, it looks like we’re going to be stuck here because we can’t fly back into ORD. And they’re starting to shut things down at SBN. Looks like another night of bunking down in an airport = FANTASTIC. #unitedairlines#ontheroadagain#yow#ord#sbn
A few weeks ago, Mia came home and said “mom, have you heard of E.B. White?” They are reading Charlottes Web at school and she was taken by the story.
She came home everyday and told me all about Wilbur, Templeton and Fern, she tells me where they are at in the book...
Today she got to the part where Charlotte dies.
She was heartbroken.
She was really, truly taken away and transported by her first novel. In the beautiful words of Charlotte herself...
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that." Charlotte - the great E. B. White. 😢💜
