Show and Tell for February 10, 2018

I’m sitting at my desk (with Finn laying underneath) staring out the window at the snow lightly falling in the backyard. I don’t know about you, but a snowy winter is something I actually love. I’m not fond of the cold, but there is something about the snow that makes everything seem magical.

This week I went to Pilates Babies & Barre Babies classes. I LOVED the Barre Babies class, but it was a pretty hard workout for this out of shape girl. My legs are killing me and I had to cancel my Yoga Babies for this afternoon because I just can’t do anything. lol.

  • This Saturday is National Cupcake Day in support of the OSPCA and Finn has been invited to his first doggy event! He’ll get to meet Crusoe the Celebrity Daschund and sample some treats. Lucky boy.
  • This morning I remembered that I wanted to “clean up” my active FB logins. You know when you login to a new app or website using your FB. There were soooo many that I never use and don’t even remember signing up for, so I’m removing them all. Here is the link https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications.
  • Riot Grrls take note. L7 is BACK and going on a mini tour! Too bad it’s only in the US… for now.
  • I think these 5 Things Successful Women Do Every Day are pretty good ideas and I’m going to incorporate them into my daily life.
  • Something I had never done before having a baby was change a diaper. So I had NO IDEA what a blowout actually was to deal with and OMG ewww. This week I saw these Shitten Mittens and know that these would be a great gift for new parents.
  • Of course I had to read The Best Chocolate for your Zodiac Sign. Mine says that it’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I disagree. I’m a Brownie or Milk Chocolate fan. Is yours accurate?
  • A friend of mine from high school is doing something really interesting. He’s joined The Mystery Mountain Project with Canadian Explorations Heritage Society to re-enact the historic “footsteps of intrepid mountaineers Don and Phyllis Munday who explored the Waddington range in 1926.” Good luck Stu!

    Our expedition will begin with a journey up Bute Inlet by boat using the same route the Munday party used 92 years ago. We’ll be traveling expedition style ferrying loads of approximately 2,000 lbs of food and equipment to various camps. This will include both modern gear and gear as was used in 1926.

    From the coast we will hack through dense brush and across dangerous rivers for 55 km through Homathko river valley. Then we will ascend 18 km of massive glaciers to get to the base of Mt. Waddington. From this base camp on the Bravo Glacier Route we will attempt the climb. Due to a shortage of food, the Mundays were not able to complete their climb in 1926.
