Last Saturday was the first day of snow. The first snow is always beautiful and I always forgot that it’s the beginning of a long Quebec winter.

As I was trying to write something up for this so-called digital diary of mine (because blogging is so yesterday :P ), I felt a bit peckish so I made myself a plate of PBJ sandwich. I love PBJ.

Early this year I was looking at my own pics from 2017 and realized that I was less squishy than I used to be at the start of the year.

Folks, lets have a moment to talk about this particular fruit; RASPBERRY. Why? Because I love this fruit, and when I love something, I tend to rant about it impassionately.

On a lazy Saturday (read : every Saturday mornings), all I do is enjoy a cup mug bucket of freshly brewed Indonesian coffee. Mentioning the origin of the coffee I drink is crucial, in case anyone would like to share me a cup of coffee, they would know exactly what coffee to bring...
