Run 2019.06.05

Today's run felt like I'd finally turned a corner on rebuilding the habit of daily running. It felt completely embedded in my normal routine again, which is what I aimed for.

Fog of World

I've been using Fog of World to track my location since last year. It's a solid app that maps out travel and has an achievement system for moving about.

Run 2019.06.04

Today was finally a sunny, warm day and it was a joy to run one of my usual routes.

A Trio of Crows

There is normally a pair of crows that greet me when I walk to work, but today a trio flew along beside me for a while. The moss-covered sign one landed on stood out as a fitting perch.

Run 2019.06.02

It seems like it's always raining when I'm able to get a run in, but today was an enjoyable run through the rain.

The Simple Vegan Pitaza

I love pizza, but sometimes the time or cost to prepare one isn't appealing. That's why making a pita-za is a perfect substitute for a full pizza.

Matamis na Bao

While I was in the Philippines, one of my favourite breakfasts was pan de sal topped with coco jam. I had been missing it but this week I stopped at Big Ray Filipino Asian Convenience Store, one of a handful of Filipino stores around Halifax, and on one shelf was a matamis na bao jar ready to delight my taste buds.


Rainy days have continued, but today I noticed that tulips are appearing around the city.

Fifi Rong – Upstream

Fifi Rong's "Upstream" is a fantastic showcase of her strengths as a vocalist and the video for the song matches the song in beauty. For a bit of a deeper dive, The Crown EP is a good way to start.

More Blooms in the Rain

It has been raining a lot here in Halifax, but when it's grey and gloomy there's usually the consolation that it's pushing flowers to grow and bloom. This bush caught my eye while I was on my way home.


Freak Lunchbox, my nearby candy store, clearly labels their bulk candy bins for items that are vegan, so after my run I was able to indulge in some gummies.

Run 2019.05.26

I enjoyed a rainy run down to the waterfront this afternoon, with my poncho flapping and glasses being speckled.

Puuung’s Love is in small things

I’ve been an admirer of Puuung‘s wonderful illustrations of relationships for years. Her work always evokes an intimate, playful feeling. She has also been creating animated shorts and has a weekly series Love is in small things that is heartwarming and fun. New episodes are added each Saturday. I am Puuung. I am creating illustr

Creamy Curried Veggies

I modified the Creamy Curried Veggies recipe from How It All Vegan and made a double batch that gave me some hearty lunches during this week at work.

Run 2019.05.23

In proving the truism that weather in Nova Scotia varies widely, today was sunny and beautiful, perfect for running. I had no frozen toes this time, just tapping toes waiting for sluggish traffic lights to change.

Run 2019.05.22

I ran today in my running sandals, face-first into a cold wind. I dashed past a bus of tourists visiting Titanic grave sites. By the end I was drenched in sweat, all save my toes. My toes were numb from the cold.

Zelda & Chill

Zelda & Chill is a perfectly relaxed assortment of tracks that would be at home in the best Hylian cafe. This is firmly in my rainy day rotation.

Trees Getting Leaves

Spring has been slow to arrive here in Halifax, but maple leaves are finally amassing.
