Recipe Post: Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

It was Miss Kitty’s birthday recently, and she asked me to make a cake for her birthday party, which was a Pathfinder party at our place, hosted by my hubby (her request, I swear!). We started a new campaign and brought some new friends to be part of our RPG-of-awesomeness, and a great time was…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – Oh What a Time We Had…

I’ve had a challenging time trying to explain to non-attendees just exactly what TempleCon is, and what it’s about. Trying to come up with a short, pithy response has been difficult, as there is so much to say! The blurb below, paraphrased from the Providence Journal’s article on TempleCon, I think says it best: “Founded…

Travelscapes: TempleCon 2015 – One more sleep…!

Sorry for being MIA for the last little while; as mentioned in my previous post, the hubster, some good friends and I are heading to a great little Gaming and Steampunk convention very soon! Since my last post, I’ve been feverishly working on my wardrobe for this event, and even though our departure is now…

Algonquin Park, Here We Come!

Geekery: Arkham Horror Board Game

I mentioned a couple of months ago in this blog how I was a huge fan of the D&D spinoff RPG series, Pathfinder.  Well, before I had ever heard of Pathfinder, there was another game, actually a board game, that had totally captured my mind and heart.  Funnily enough, I first heard of this game,…

So many activities…so little time…

I realized recently that the reason I’ve developed so many hobbies and activities in the last couple of years, is because I have all this free time on my hands that used to be devoted to going to university classes at night and working full time during the day.  After ten years of part-time post…
