A Special Weekend Visitor!

We had a special visitor this weekend: Miss Pickles! Miss Pickles is my stepmom’s dog. Every year my Dad and stepmom drive down to Hamilton to run the Around the Bay 30km road race with my stepsister. It’s a tradition that started while my stepsister was attending McMaster University and they’ve kept it going!

Tales from My Sickbed

It’s Monday! That means I should be giving you a tour of all the amazing work I accomplished over the last week (potentially longer, as I have yet to give you many tours at all.)
