Snow Blind

Today in the middle of the day it started flurrying then eventually started gathering on the ground until the point that when I got on the bus just after 5 pm traffic was crawling along slowly over snow covered roads that appeared slippery. When it started I was a bit surprised but it was more of a “oh…it’s snowing.I didn’t realize it was supposed to snow today” reaction.  My first thought was just Continue reading

Dear Halifax,

Please set up a gluten free bakery between my house and the Dalhousie campus, preferably serving GF muffins, bagels, and other yummy breakfast treats in the morning with with fresh baked breads, pizza crusts, and cookies for me to pick up for dinner on my way home.  I will be your best customer, I promise!  That is all.

Sincerely,

Kerry

Ooops

Hi everyone,

Sorry I just accidentally published something (The start of Christmas) I meant to save as a draft.  It has been changed back to a draft but for those of you subscribed to the emails who got a version of it in your inbox… if you don’t want to spoil it, don’t read all the notes yet!

Thanks again!

Kerry
