Blood, Bones & Butter

As I've said before: my mom always knows the best books for me, exactly what I love to read: creative, narrative non-fiction - communicating information, like a reporter, but shaped in a way that reads like fiction.

My birthday (today) was no exception: she gave me Blood, Bones & Butter, a lovely rambling memoir about family, a wild childhood and growing up around good food.  It reminds me very much of another of my favourite books: A Tuscan Childhood.  To the point yet still very entertaining her writing style is easy to read, yet very well developed.  I'm very much enjoying this book - I'm a 1/3 in and I only just opened it this morning :)

Thanks mum!



In the same way some people say they've always known that they are straight/bisexual/lesbian/gay ... male/female/trans ... I've always known that I am none of those things, but identify with some aspects of each them.  Some days I am a sexy woman, a girly girl, a butch, a tomboy, a metrosexual guy or most recently a leather boi.



Riding the Backroads

One of the first mild spring days we've had and a good friend took me for a fabulous windy ride down the Niagara Parkway on his motorcycle !  It was refreshing to see the Falls and the vineyards from a new angle!
