Thus ends my short foray into blogging. Andrea will be back on Monday yesterday with posts galore full of her usual charm and wit. Thanks for stopping by and putting up with option B for the week. Hopefully I’ve kept the fishbowl in good condition.

(edited to add: Criminy ! I hadn’t even noticed that Andrea had posted yesterday before I made todays post. She just can’t help herself. )

You did a lovely job Mark – you even topped off the tank before handing the keys back!

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.
