I cannot describe the newfound excitement for going to the loo. Going pee has become synonymous with joyride! I have two bathrooms. Each had a toilet. Those now have bidets, and I am having a blast telling everyone about them. (Be prepared for a few puns!) On top of being super eco-friendly, a bidet is … Continue reading Better Off With Bidets
I have been wanting to write about this for a year! In January of 2021, I had just finished watching Down to Earth with Zac Efron and Darin Olien. A docuseries about the amazing communities and countries that are working to better the environment, it shows that there are ways to improve your health all … Continue reading My AHA Moment
It is May 2021 and plywood has just gone up to $95 a sheet! I can't believe I just typed that. Last year at this time it was about $35 a sheet. So there's that! You'd think that writing a post about remodelling wouldn't be the smartest move to generate clicks to my blog. Because … Continue reading Pin-Worthy and Planet-Happy Renovations
You can raise a child who loves nature and is deeply connected to Mother Earth even in the middle of a metropolitan environment. Look at me. Born in Toronto, raised in the city, I love immersing myself in everything outdoorsy. Camping, canoeing, hiking, vacations in the forest, I love it all. It's not that I … Continue reading Raising a Wild (nature-loving) Child is Easy!

But, on the other hand, I have been able to spend this year with my two young kids. This has been a carpe diem year. … Continue reading Solstice With The Mostest
Decorating the Christmas tree is my favourite part of the holidays. I get all giddy each time I open the boxes filled with hand-me-down wooden ornaments, Christmas balls commemorating our firsts, my bird collection my partner has been buying (and making) for me over the years, and vintage ornaments I have curated... oh and the … Continue reading O Christmas Tree… Which One Is Greener?
Can we just admit that we don't need the gifts? C'mon... say it with me, "I do not need to buy presents." A few years ago my side of the family decided to end the gift-giving dance. It got to the point where I was giving someone a $50 gift card so that one person … Continue reading Give Up The Gifts
Let's just get to the point. The pandemic has a done a lot to us. I know. But I am writing this post for one reason only, so let me just get to it. I drove a lot these last few months. I normally walk or take the bus, but with "no where to go", … Continue reading Offset Your Road Trip Carbon Emissions with Credits
... and I am honoured! Thrilled! Elated! I love Culture Days, especially in my town of Guelph. And this year's national celebration of arts and culture is going bigger and badder than ever. We won't let COVID-19 stop Canadians from experiencing hands-on and behind-the-scenes arts and culture in our communities. The City of Guelph is … Continue reading I’ve Been Invited To Culture Days
Note: I first wrote this post last year before COVID-19 hit. I was ready to share it when the world paused and no one knew what was going to happen. Sara's business is back up and running just like it was before. She has confirmed that the only changes from pre-Coronavirus are: the licensed kitchen … Continue reading A Day In The Life: Grocery Shopping III (Lady Sara’s Bounty Review)
