Getting Ready for Spring

I am aware that where I live spring is still a few months away, but I got an e-mail from my favourite seed company today and well…I got all excited. I really want to grow as much of our food as I can this summer, and given our limited space, I’m going to have to be creative.

I’m hoping to share this little experience with you all, and look forward to any suggestions and advice you all have.

This pick is my backyard today…like I said still a few months away.


Shoot Me

So I have just spent the better part of my Sunday amid screaming teenagers at the Biggest Mall in the world. Sadly my city is the proud owner of West Edmonton Mall…the mall referenced above. Why would I torture myself like this? Two eleven year olds in love with the band, One Direction.

If you are unaware of this band don’t feel bad…you are older that 14, or don’t have a preteen girl in your life. I try to remind myself how my friends felt about the BeeGees…I never had a band crush. I crushed on Wonder woman and the Bionic Woman though…guess that was the first clue that I’m gay, lol.

I have to get my hearing checked now, I think there is some football game going on today too…lol

God Bless, Julia


I suffer sometimes…I suffer from depression. It’s been so long that I forget when it started really. I know that after my first child, twenty-three years ago, I suffered from postpartum. After my second it was worse…they recommended I not have any other children. Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I have four children…two are technically step-children.

My mother suffered from postpartum after having me, and was incapacitated for the first four years of my life. I’m sure that heredity factors into all this…my grandmother suffered as did her father…he drank the family fortune away., so the story goes. I’m luckier my ancestors…better living through pharmaceuticals.
