Photo Update

Here are some photos from January, featuring our new home and our visit from my dad:

Fitness Update

I finished the Couch-to-5K program a few weeks ago and have moved on to Hal Higdon’s Novice Supreme Marathon Training program, of which I start Week 3 tomorrow. I chose this program for its fortuitous timing in relation to the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k run at the end of March (in which I’m now entered) and the […]

Tough Mudder

In pursuit of my physical fitness goals, as well as in what may be a outrageous lapse of judgment on my part, I’ve signed up for Tough Mudder’s Toronto event in August. Besides feeding my urge for self-destruction and having fun running around with friends in the mud, I’m using this as a milestone towards […]


Another month, another terse post to maintain the thin pretense of this blog. I hope that I’ll be able to devote more time and thought to this after the dust finally settles on the relocation. I guess we’ll see. Christmas was fun. Sammy made out like a bandit, thanks to the many wonderful gifts sent […]

Photo Update

Here are some photos from the past few weeks, featuring the recent visit by Martha’s aunts from Slovenia. They are offered without commentary in the interest of getting them online in a somewhat timely fashion: We’re revving up for our big departure on Friday, getting our administrative ducks in a row and fitting in […]

Photo Update

Since telling people that we’re soon to be back on our native continent, I’ve had many people ask (on- and offline) whether I was going to change the title of this blog. A discussion of this blog’s title has been kicking around in my head since I first started it. My varied attempts to write […]

Photo Update

Here are some pictures from the past month, focusing on our friend Dennis’s visit and the move out of Rue de l’Hôpital 20. There are, of course, also lots of pictures of Sammy:

Quick post, anticipating a larger post

Life here continues as it has for the past few weeks. We continue to wait for final confirmation of our big news. Although significant bureaucratic hurdles have been cleared, the finish line is still up ahead just out of reach. This ongoing source of tension has been largely allayed by Sammy, who seems to become […]

Update, Reading and Photo

Another month, another sparse update along with some new pictures. I wish I had more to relate. The central and preoccupying aspect of life here in Clan Bajengame’s alpine eyrie, to which I’ve alluded previously, is sadly no closer to being ready for public announcement. We’re hoping for more solid news by the end of […]
