Whether we are off on our travels or at home, there isn’t a lot of time which we aren’t together. As busy as we are with fun activities, there is lag time in there [...]

Eliminate Mosquitos at the Source with Greenstrike http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/2015/07/eliminate-mosquitos-at-the-source-with-greenstrike http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/2015/07/eliminate-mosquitos-at-the-source-with-greenstrike#comments Thu, 30 Jul 2015 22:14:22 +0000 http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/?p=81570 I often say that I love everything about summer, but that isn’t 100% true. My biggest gripe is the mosquitoes that we have here in the Canadian prairies. Since we have tons of green space, and we love to live outdoors in the summer – mosquitoes are a big summertime pest. Plus, I am a mosquito [...]

We flew into the small airport after a long weather delay in Calgary, and we immediately felt more relaxed. I quite enjoy flying into small airport for the ease in getting out and on our way.  It was only a short [...]

Chipotle Slaw Burger http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/2015/07/chipotle-slaw-burger http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/2015/07/chipotle-slaw-burger#comments Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:15:20 +0000 http://www.myorganizedchaos.net/?p=81579 Think about it: Can you make your summer burger, better? I honestly didn’t think there was a problem with the burgers we make. We do enjoy them, though we have fallen into habitual ways and always make them the same way each time. Whether for ourselves for for company, we always served plain old burgers [...]

Think, lemon meringue and key lime pie. Mmmm!  I recently stumbled on a recipe for Key Lime Margarita Pie on the Kraft Canada website and I immediately bookmarked it. Not only was I impressed by the few ingredients {I’m a simple, no-fuss gal like that}, yet it’s [...]

It’s my duty as their Mother to facilitate their interests, harness their strengths and help them build upon their weaknesses. Finally, provide [...]

Sometimes my husband will say things like, “remember that restaurant we went to years ago, when we travelled to …“. And, I have no clue what he’s talking about. Most of my memories are sporadic and broad, the fine details mostly non-existent. It’s something that has [...]

I know, I know. Summer isn’t even half-way over so why reflect already? We still have lots of summer left! … again, I need to convince myself of this as it’s passing far too quickly. We are truly making the most of our summer 2015. We’ve already done many day trips and [...]

Factor that in with every other expense that pops up during the summer months, and the realization comes that you need to save where you can. Thus, my summertime shopping consists of smart choices where I can, [...]

That is until, we started camping this spring. At our creek property we have a coffee brewer, the old-style fill a whole pot kind. Know what? It tastes so good! I looked forward to my freshly brewed cup of coffee each morning, even more so than usual. [...]

Yet what about those that simply cannot afford to dress up in professional clothing to look their best, for [...]
