Grandma’s and Guns

When going through some old photos, I found the strangest thing… a photograph of my great-grandmother… with a gun! This was probably on the farm that she lived on, and of course, this would have been the norm for her back then. But still, the sight of this photo was shocking! (-:

New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! Okay, so it’s already more than half way through January. Anyway, to start the year off right, I would like to revamp this blog (design and all) to be only my personal thoughts, poems, etc. and not any products from my online shops. Although, I might occasionally post some products to let you know what I have been up to. So, with that in mind, I have deleted anything that is not personal musings from this blog, and will be starting another blog that has anything with regards to products. The new products blog should be up and running within the week, so stay tuned.

Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the eyes of a child
I long for You.
Through the eyes of a child
I sit at Your feet,
Listening and learning
of Your Way.


Melt away myself.
Wash me white as snow.
Take away myself
Because, Lord, I want to know
You, through the eyes of a child.


Innocent eyes
Absorbing Your Truth,
Soaking in Your love.
Touch my Heart today, Lord –
I long to feel You
Through the eyes of a child.


Through the eyes of a child
I long for you You.
Through the eyes of a child
I long for Your embrace.
I sit at Your feet,
Listening and learning
Of Your Way and Truth.
Through the eyes of a child
Soaking in Your love.
Through the eyes of a child.
The eyes of a child.
Through the eyes of a child.

Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” – Luke 18:16

Here a Vole, There a Vole, Everywhere a Vole

Ever heard of a vole? Well, according to Dictionary.com, a Vole is any of several small mouselike or ratlike rodents of the genus Microtus and related genera, having short limbs and a short tail. Check out the little guy (or gal) that has been hanging around our neighbourhood lately, or specifically, our front lawn eating the bird seed and birch tree seed pods. Sooo cute! It seems it is of the “Meadow” variety. I guess it likes the clay soil in our neighbourhood and how the rainwater pools in certain spots. Meadow Voles like damp, swampy places. Sometimes clay soil after the rain can seem like a swamp! At first, we thought it was a rat when it appeared in our backyard. Then it appeared on our front lawn, happily munching away. And, upon further inspection, the tail was thin. Rats tails are thick and spindly. And it was to cute to be a wild rat! (-: This particular vole has been possibly living under our next door neighbour’s wooden walkway. The hole that it is going into goes under said walkway.
