Saturday Snippets: 07.May.2016

It’s a day early, but I’m wishing Mom a very Happy Mothers Day! And to all the other moms, grandmas, sisters, friends out there – we love you and appreciate you! The bad thing about living two provinces away from my mom is that we can’t spend the day celebrating her, but we did have a great 4-hour layover-visit at the airport earlier this week, as they were flying back from South Korea.

Here’s a few snippets that caught our eye during the week of 07.May.2016.

On Climbing:

On Eating:

  • Is it ice cream season yet??!
  • I like how different countries / cultures have their version of a pancake. I’ve always wanted to make Dutch baby pancake, but have always seen them baked in cast iron pan (which we don’t have). This way makes me want to make one this weekend!
  • Dining etiquette around the world.

On Cycling:

  • Jonty and I have both been hit by cars (driven by people not paying attention) while cycling. The more you own the road, the safer you are!

On Repeating:

  • I’ve watched this before, but it came across my path again. This video sums up a lot. Your outlook and perspective on life can change in 13,000 km, too!
  • We are thinking about all the Fort Mac people who were forced out of their burning homes, and hope they get the fire under control! Last Friday night, the fire alarm went off in our building at 2:30 am. Once we realized the alarm was coming from our building, we calmly made sure there was no smoke billowing into the hallway, went to the bathroom, got dressed, and headed outside to wait with the other apartment dwellers, for the firefighters to come. False alarm (someone was enthusiastically frying food at 2:30 in the morning). At the time, it felt frustrating, but has since made me appreciate it was only a false alarm!

Happy Weekend!
