methinks I need a light sprinkling of pixie dust

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography|travel talk

I’m feeling a little schlumpy today. The skies are gray and it is COLD out there. COLD! I can’t resolve the fact that I was basking in 30 degree sunshine on Friday. In fact, this was my view for part of Friday morning:

View from my hammock


What can I say, our hotel was gorgeous. We were put up at the Grand Floridian. I will write more later, but deadlines are looming and I don’t have the luxury of lingering right now.

How are you guys? What’s new with you?

It’s hard getting back into the swing of things! Glad you had a great time, looking forward to hearing about it. What’s new with me? Not much, I’ve done alot of laundry, alot of steam cleaning, and alot of nursing my sweet sick girl. I need a break!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
