That’s right, folks, time to clean up my desktop. Digitally as well as physically. Dust bunnies and coffee stains need to go! I’ll take care of the physical part after I share the photos destined for the recycle bin.
Since I’ve been involved with the Federation of Women’s Institutes of Canada, a great deal of my online time includes looking at food, crafts, women’s issues, and the history of Canada. I’m learning a lot, especially about our local history. Last Sunday, Reiner and I were out for a walk in the older part of town. It was kind of surreal since I’ve spent more time looking at vintage shots than the real thing these days. Which is something of a warning sign, I’m sure. I need to get out more often!
Below is a map of the town of Paris in 1847. Our house, built in 1885 is not on the map. Our street is not on the map!

Little Bowden Women’s Institute members proved they are a high-brow group by getting into the spirit of Mo’ket Harborough when, for one night only, they became Little Brow-den WI. Being unable to grow moustaches was no barrier to getting in on the Movember action. Instead, the Mo Sistas paid £1 for the privilege of sticking or drawing on the wackiest possible eyebrows, with all proceeds going to the Movember Foundation.
In other news, the semester is just about over. I have one more assignment to complete, then a couple of weeks dedicated to studying and writing final exams. The work load has eased considerably, and I hope to spend more time here reading and writing. Until then, thanks for reading!
