Railene chose this weeks blog image- her squishy, Keyra It’s hard to believe we are in the month of April already. The temperature is gradually warming; the snow is melting, and my children are finally able to go outside without heavy snow-gear on (usually). This month is by far my favourite for three reasons: Spring, … Continue reading Triple T’s – Total Surprise, Turning 33, and Tracking Amazon Packages

“A Teacher’s Log, Marvel Comics and Isaac’s Daily Report”
Hello folks, it feels like a long time coming since I last wrote a blog post. I am now starting to understand when my fellow teachers say, "There is never enough time to get work done." As a first year teacher, things have been really exciting and like a roller coaster ride - all part … Continue reading “A Teacher’s Log, Marvel Comics and Isaac’s Daily Report”
A New Chapter: Changing Careers, Checkpoint Children, and understanding Psalm 56.
Well hello there, it's been quite some time since my last blog post. So long in fact, my preoccupations with life and career change made my commitment to my readers slide. For that, I offer a sincere apology. I understand that when life gets hectic, certain things get pushed to the side, and with that … Continue reading A New Chapter: Changing Careers, Checkpoint Children, and understanding Psalm 56.
Wieners and Sausages
What do you do, when your dog eats not one, not two, but ten raw moose sausages? Oh yes, coming in at a whopping nine pounds, plus two pounds of moose meat... meet Asher, my miniature Dachshund. (I love the picture of my wife and Asher, on our wedding day). Sitting in my lap now … Continue reading Wieners and Sausages
Brutalizing Weeds, Planting Seeds and Farming with my Family
Hey folks and welcome back to another post. I’ve been farming on my days off, and boy! have we had beautiful weather for it. Normally you don’t get sunshine in Newfoundland unless you get wind, and that was the case these past four days. I’m not complaining though, as it kept the flies off of … Continue reading Brutalizing Weeds, Planting Seeds and Farming with my Family
Short and Sweet: Slowly Developing Patience…Very Slowly.
"Fireeeee truck. Fire TRUCK!!! Here comes the firreeee truck." Maybe if I roll over, the song will stop? Grabbing the blankets, I pulled them to the top of my neck and turned onto my side. Silence. A brief lull? Did he actually stop? "FIRE TRUCK! FIRE TRUCKKKK! HERE COMES THE FIRE TRUCK!" It's 6:10 in … Continue reading Short and Sweet: Slowly Developing Patience…Very Slowly.
Eason Wars: The COVID Strikes Back
Like the rebels surviving against The Empire, for two years The Eason Clan have gone unscathed - until now. Like Gollum climbing down the steep cliffs west of the Anduin River hunting Frodo in The Lord of The Rings, COVID leapt upon us suddenly. "Dude, enough of the references from popular fiction!" Yeah, yeah. Let's … Continue reading Eason Wars: The COVID Strikes Back
Short and Sweet: Eating with Camels, and Losing Our Imaginations
Not exactly your Marvel Avenger's line up, but I've got a feeling The Eason Clan could overwhelm one villain if we worked together - maybe a lame sounding character like Egghead or Asbestos Lady (yes, actual Marvel villains). Shout out to my friend XerxesInEaster, for the awesome image she created for us: Isaac's super speed, … Continue reading Short and Sweet: Eating with Camels, and Losing Our Imaginations
Reading Old Journals And Looking Back
Photo by Caio on Pexels.com Hey folks, welcome back! These past few weeks have been a blur: from the 'Freedom Convoy' in Ottawa - with protests in multiple Canadian cities and at the US/Canada borders - protesting against state forced vaccine mandates, to my house bound mental state being shaken like the Hawaii Chair, arguably … Continue reading Reading Old Journals And Looking Back
