The Corpse Bride of Sokal, Saskatchewan

If you’ve been reading along, you know that I’m currently on a deep dive researching murders in Saskatchewan in the 1930s. (If you only just stumbled on my blog and would like to know what I’m talking about, read this and this.) Over the course of my research I’ve come across a lot of weirdContinue reading “The Corpse Bride of Sokal, Saskatchewan”

3 Great Books I’ve Read Lately

In this neverending pandemic, especially now with cases numbers blowing up in my province thanks to these fabulous new Variants of Concern and the turtle-slow rollout of vaccines, I find myself in need of escape. I read a very wide variety of books, but lately anything contemporary and based in reality is not appealing atContinue reading “3 Great Books I’ve Read Lately”

Seed Update – Part II

We are fast approaching spring, so I decided it was once again time to update you on my precious plant babies. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, read this and this.) Yes, I know that according to the calendar we are technically already in spring and I’m sure for a lot of you,Continue reading “Seed Update – Part II”

They Sure Like Their Strychnine, Don’t They?

A few weeks ago, I told you about my search for the mysterious skull that Kerrobert claims is behind their haunted courthouse. (If you haven’t read it, you can do so here.) I haven’t given up my quest, and have spent the last few weeks wading through what I can only describe as a lotContinue reading “They Sure Like Their Strychnine, Don’t They?”

10 Signs My Husband and I Are Childless

1. My husband spent several weeks doing a deep dive into which new TV would best suit his gaming needs. 2. We get 8-10 hours of sleep. Per night. 3. The closest thing to a primary colour in our house is my turquoise china cabinet. 4. We leave our candy and chocolate out in theContinue reading “10 Signs My Husband and I Are Childless”

Full Slug

The amount of inactivity I’ve experienced during this pandemic has been… intense. To be perfectly honest, I’ve gone full slug. After a few brief attempts at home workouts in the beginning – in which I discovered that I don’t enjoy cardio of any kind and having my muscles burn and go wobbly does not fillContinue reading “Full Slug”

The Mystery of the Haunted Skull

A few months ago I was reading up on the most (allegedly) haunted places in Saskatchewan, as one does, and came upon a haunted courthouse in Kerrobert. According to the town website, “there are rumours that the courthouse is haunted. People have heard whispering voices in otherwise empty rooms, and footsteps ascending the main stairway.”Continue reading “The Mystery of the Haunted Skull”

Birthday Extravaganza

It’s March, aka the month of my birth! Oh yes my friends, I am one of those lunatics who loves celebrating their birthday. And I’m very good at it. Let me show you what I mean (and feel free to take note of anything for yourself, wink wink nudge nudge). The celebrations generally being aContinue reading “Birthday Extravaganza”

I’m Jealous of Geek Culture

No one who knows me well tends to describe me as ‘normal’. (I talk about murder a lot, okay?) I’m quirky, dark, definitely a little weird, and probably not who you want to invite to a dinner party if you’re trying to impress someone. (Unless that someone is looking to debate the merits of theContinue reading “I’m Jealous of Geek Culture”
