Inventory Day

INVENTORY DAY! We were ready. Ballpoints, gel pens, broken glasses. The wonder team is nothing but eager to count stationery.

How Many...

How Many...

At the beginning of the pandemic, I was doing pretty well keeping things under control. I was mostly using the tester pens from the shop, which was fun, although challenging since no one knew what ink was in any of the pens (the inks sometimes end up getting mixed up a bit).

COVID-19 Small Business Journal: Week 15 Update

The other day, I ran outside to rescue my hanging laundry from the rain. If that isn’t the story of my life I don’t know what is. And there was a rainbow! It was actually a double rainbow, although the second one is a bit harder to see.

Plants and New Pots

Plants and New Pots

We are a couple of months late to the game, but we finally got around to repotting some of our plants. Normally we try to do it around the Victoria Day holiday in May, but winter seemed to hang on a bit longer this year, plus with the pandemic, we hadn’t gone to pick up soil or new pots.

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to the captain of our ship. Thanks for all the large pieces of furniture picked up, boxes of books moved up and down stairs, gross things cleaned up, bugs killed, and adventures.

COVID19 Small Business Journal: Week 14 Update

Somehow I completely missed last week, and I spent more time than I’m willing to admit trying to do the math figuring out what happened and what week I was on.

Resources for Anti-Racism

Over the last week or so we’ve been compiling a few resources. I’m not tilting against the impossibility of any sort of comprehensiveness, but I’ve been holding off on sharing as I’ve been taking my time to try and sort through which places that I’ve found helpful to start in.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s Saturday! The weekend. So I thought I would share about some chocolate chip cookies we made the other day. We’re spending more time in the kitchen these days, making messes, estimating measurements, setting off the fire alarm.
