The ‘little things’ that matter in life, a bit of humor for Monday

So we decided to go to Cooper Marsh on Sunday with our younger children. It is one of my favourite places to go with the littles.  I have pushed many a stroller through the muddy walkway and pulled many a wagon.  We’ve fetched shoes thrown over the edge of the boardwalk, pulled out rubber boots stuck in mud and carried a tired toddler to my exhaustion many a time.  But not this Sunday, we decided to bring Maya (our black lab) with us for the walk.  It must have been winter brain that made me forget but you are not allowed to bring dogs there, not even if they are on a leash.

So we hopped into the car and decided to go to our favourite local beach.  While driving I noticed a frog, a really big frog, at the side of the road.  I mentioned it to the family and my husband insisted that we turn around and go see it (I think he thought I was bluffing when I used my hands to describe how big it was but he assures me that is not the case)  So we turn around and find Mr. Frog.  By this time he is in the middle of the road.  Alex jumps out of the car and goes running into the middle of the rural highway and starts flagging his hands at the cars  and trucks protecting little (well, huge) Mr. Frog.  Continue reading


Writings of a Mr.

Introducing writings of a Mr (otherwise known as Alex)

I don’t think you will see much of his writing on my Blog

but maybe just maybe once in a while I will share more of his beautiful poetry with you.

Thank you Alex for allowing me to share this with the ‘world’.
This is my anniversary poem.




Close to me


In my arms,

I hold you close to me

I’ll hold you close,

For all eternity

 Since our first moment

We were meant to be

Our love keeps growing,

I feel the energy

 And with my hands,

I hold you close to me

I build a home for our family

 I hold your face

I stroke your hair

 I look into your eyes and gaze

 I touch you


 Underneath my fingertips

I feel you shiver

Your body speaks to me

Through my hands

My hands that are yours

And hold yours

Close to me for all eternity

 In my eyes

No beauty can come close

To yours

 My breath is heavy

 Your eyes

They pierce

They’ve captured me

The willing slave of love

 I pull you close

Look into the richness that you are

With all that I am

Eyes only for you

 In my arms I hold you close to me

It’s where you’re meant to be

 I pull you closer

A sweet surrender to my senses

Your skin smells of a flowering shower

Covering me,

Empowering me

 You seduce me.

Like a current running through me

The surge feels so right

I’ll hold you tight


I taste you

And linger while I do,

I do

Forever I will

Linger with you

Skin on skin.

 Look at all that we’ve been through,

Me and you,

You and I


 I cannot say enough,

Of how we’ve made what’s tough

So easy,


 Me and you,

And you,

In my arms,

I hold you close to me,

On our Anniversary

 And this I vow,

To you my wife,

To be your rock,

For the rest of our life

I’ll hold you close

I’ll take good care

I’ll always want

To stroke your hair.


Alex making me a sparkler heart at the cottage, we met on Canada Day, fireworks from the beginning!
