Fernie Mom : I Want To Throw Out Everything In My House

It’s that time of year again! I think it happens about 3 times every year, for me. When you want to clean and rid of all the useless things in your house. Things that collect dust and aren’t being used/played with or those objects in your house that just always get in the way and you don’t know why you even have it (baby gate leaning up against the wall for about 3 years now, I’m looking at you). I want it all gone.

I might do it!

A friend of mine, an older woman with no kids in the house, has an empty house and I love visiting her. They has art on the walls, furniture, just a couple things on tables but hardly anything at all and I’m so jealous.

But what if I need that 4′ x 3′ crinkled up map of earth in the future! What if Roman asks me where Australia is again! That’s what I always think and that’s why we still have it and the baby gate and the other things in our house.

I might just do it!

Did You Know: Fernie’s Canada Post Office Holiday Hours

Online shopping is something we do in Fernie. We don’t love doing it (secretly we do) because we want to support local businesses and makers and we do that as much as we can. Sometimes you need Avery Labels 22827 and you don’t want to drive to Cranbrook to get them, or you want to get a dragon bathrobe for your son and you need to order it from Amazon. It’s the way of life in Fernie. We get to type in some letters and numbers into a computer and find literally anything we want. Plus, there are the packages coming in from family and friends that need to be picked up. Long story short, here’s the post office extended holiday hours:

Confessions Of A Lazy Person : I Love Opening Day Weekend!

Fernie Alpine Resort Opening Day 2018 - fresh snow

You know why I love opening day in Fernie? It’s not what you might expect. Or maybe you know me well enough now to know exactly why I love opening day. Opening day means the start of skiing for my husband and kids…which leaves time for me to paint! YES! It was such a beautiful opening weekend, too. My family had a wonderful time at the hill and I painted until they came home hungry and tired legged. It was a wonderful weekend. It was a particularly good weekend for painting. I also attended a paint and sip type night with Angela Morgan and a group of amazing, supportive women. It was a night of wine, food and also fundraising for Angela’s daughter who wants to build houses in El Salvador.  I painted an Angela Morgan type painting in oils, which is a first for me, in two ways. It was a steep learning curve but I embraced my novice inferiority feelings and dove in. Hooray for opening day!

Google That Sh#t: Does Wearing A Toque For Long Periods Of Time Affect Hair Growth?

Toques By Tristen Paris

These are the kinds of things I think about in the winter, when I don’t want to do my hair but I DO want to wear toques all the time. Does wearing a toque for long periods of time affect hair growth? Now, I did google it and the answer I came up with is: NO! Wearing a hat does not affect hair growth but wearing a dirty hat might. So keep it clean, everyone, and love your toques!
