Why I don’t care if me taking selfies bugs you.
Why I am involved so heavily in my community, and four pieces of advice if you’re interested in getting involved where you live.
Why I’m on Team One-and-Done.
A while back I mentioned I was struggling with the future of this blog. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to be about, and I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to bother. However,[…]
Kale and I went on an adventure tonight. I wasn’t really in the mood to spend another night at home, so we went for a drive and ended up on Burnaby Mountain to watch the[…]
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
Mad Men: I’ve been getting really into Mad Men these days. We have Netflix and so I’ve been watching starting from the beginning, and I find when I have spare time I’m likely to watch[…]
We have another broody chicken. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but about a month ago, Noodle became broody. Broody is when they take to sitting in their nest box all day thanks to[…]
Way back when I first moved to Vancouver in 1994, I worked at a vitamin shop in North Vancouver and to get to it I took the Seabus every morning and hiked up the hill[…]
As the preschool year starts to wrap up with only a few short weeks left before the long summer called No Morning Break, I finally had to admit to myself today that I’m dreading summer.[…]

Things are well here at Chez Arbo. Work is gangbusters and we’re busy busy busy little beavers in the basement, and we’ve become more serious about our hunt for a new-to-us vehicle now that the[…]

Today the Vancouver Playhouse announced it was closing down after Saturday’s show because they simply couldn’t afford to keep running. I’ve been hearing numbers of close to one million dollars in debt. I think[…]
It’s been a little quiet on the old Arbolog these days, primarily because I’ve been so busy for work! This is a great feeling but I will be very pleased to tune out for a[…]
As so many of my blog posts are prompted these days, I was chatting with a few people on Twitter the other day about our (ridiculously) robust tea stashes. Amber decided to up the ante[…]
It snowed this weekend, which for those of you in pretty much all the rest of Canada isn’t really worthy of a blog post. But here on the southern coast of BC, snow is rare[…]
I created a slideshow of pictures of Kale from 2011. They’re in order, and it’s about 2 minutes long. He’s been a bit of a pill lately, so I wanted to remember some of the[…]
