Musicians, Andrew, and a unicorn pillow

The waiting room at the hospital is usually rather tense, particularly in Oncology. This afternoon, two men appeared with clarinets and music stands, proceeding to play a little concert. Despite a fog of anxiety, I was pleasantly distracted by the talented and friendly musicians. Today was Crohn’s chemo infusion #22 and my veins are getting…

What was your #OneGoodThing…

Brûlée coffee and a cut

My new favorite tradition is to treat myself to a caramel brûlée latte when I go downtown to get my hair cut. The staff at Crooks Coffee are always so sweet and their drinks and food are fantastic! Many thanks to Matthew and D’nae at Ritual Salon for sprucing up my wild pixie! I love…
