Friday Fun Facts: Marcus ~ Daddy, Hubby, Farmer Geek Blogger

 

About time for another round of Friday Fun Facts, where you get to learn a little bit more about our contributors. Today Marcus shares his past jobs with you. Past employment does not, by any means, define you, but it is an interesting way to see where you have been at different stages in life. I always find it fascinating to learn where people have worked!

Advent With Children ~ A mom's perspective on Christmas

 

As a household, we get excited for Christmas, we grab hold of events and traditions, we bake, we sing, we watch our favourite movies.

This year I’ve been trying extra hard to keep things simple and our schedule more open than past years.

I also want to try a few “retro” activities like simply driving around in pajamas to look at lights. Maybe build a classic gingerbread house. Some sledding. That kind of stuff.

I’m trying to avoid the bustle a bit.

Canada 150

Happy Canada Day!

150 years, still makes for a young country. And certainly we haven’t done everything right in the past, but I AM proud to be a Canadian and call this nation my birthplace & home. All my days.

So cheers to you, fellow Canadian makers, growers, movers, shakers, dreamers!
