When not blogging on The Sprog, Lisa can often be found in a park somewhere in East Van with her little boy, freelance writing, sewing clothing, tweeting (@blauelibelle), reading just about anything, performing on stilts, eating chocolate or drinking craft beer. (Sometimes several of the above simultaneously.) Living in a way that’s good for her health & the planet is important to her, so she usually gets where she needs to go by bike or on foot, sometimes transit & occasionally with Modo vehicles.
It’s Black Friday…and seemingly we’ve now adopted this tradition in Canada. I’m not sure when that happened, but we sure do like to copy what our pals down south are doing, so I guess it was just a matter of time. There are a few bargains happening in various markets – some decent celebrity abodes up for sale. Are you wondering if the same is applying up here in Vancouver?

After working full time all week, the weekends are for my home and my family. Saturdays are usually spent running around doing errands, going to soccer games and catching up on housework…Sundays, however, are all about relaxing.
