Quite a few asked to see some pics from ‘The Big Night’.

Halloween 001   Halloween 002













Pumpkin suit was hand sewn by Mom under strick directive of Nat.  And while it was a favorite at parties and school, Nat opted to be a storm trouper for trick or treating.  Thomas made a super ‘Super Mario’. Seen here before trick or treating with good friend Zoe (Pyramid).

Halloween 003














Uncle Matt, or should I say the big bad pig, showed up too, but was unsuccesful in scaring the small children.  And that’s all she wrote.

Midnight Saskatoon Time! Happy New Year!

Posted in General on January 1st, 2013 by mish

The year in all, went as well as can be.
With Thomas in grade one and Nathaniel in school-pre.
Imbaw tackled school boards, to ensure good educations.
While reveling also in family vacations.

Much music abounded with two pianos played.
On our Steinway and Heintzman side by side duets were made.
Thomas and Nathaniel mastered many new tunes,
while Michele continued with old Claire de Lunes.

With much sorrow we remembered those lost to the sublime,
as well as watched NRC’s slow spiraling decline.
Battles were ongoing against the usual foe.
But finally that housekeeper, early in the New Year, should go!

For 2013 we look forward to more running.
Both in sneakers at marathons and in our new boat sunning.
Disneyworld in May?  Hey Hey!
A trip to France? In the fall perchance!

Wishing you all, all the best in 2013, from our ice castle to yours (Yes we turned our backyard into a skating rink! With the Cosmic Funk blasting on the iBear it made for a crazy New Years Eve on ice!!).


Michele Runs Half-Marathon in 2:13

Posted in Uncategorized on May 27th, 2012 by mish

Following up on my New Years resolution to run a half-marathon.  I DID IT! And I ran the whole thing. No walking necessary.   2:13 is 7 minutes faster than I anticipated, entirely thanks to Meesh (preschool friend!) who dropped in to run it with me between trips to Sweden and Taipai. As an aside, Meesh is currently training for the Crowsnest Pass Sinister 7 in July – 147 km trail race.  Something to strive for !?!  Maybe not this year.  Very sorry for Imbaw – who trained for this Half  too, but had to pull out with a strained calf 2 days ago.  He knows what he did wrong and is looking forward to running a Half in august.  Manitoba (half?) marathon next year!  Hope some of you can join me for it!  For now I’m going to ramp the running down a bit and hit the water with our new kite board! WooHoo!


























Here’s me and Meesh (and her dog Harley!) – 6:45AM pre-run photo op!
