T Is For Two Things

I used to spend a lot of time on the train. Via Rail to be exact. My mom lives in Brockville and I in Hamilton, it was sometimes the best way to travel.
That is over now.
Via Rail has derailed too many times for my liking, and ironically always on the route I travel, that I am not touring to my mom's unless by car now.
Since this is about getting to know who Freda really is... wow it's weird typing in third person.... then I will tell you two more things I cannot live without.
Seriously I go slightly insane when I do....
Tim Hortons coffee.
I need an I.V. drip of this stuff.
Seriously. I have not gone a day without it in so long that I forget what my Tassimo and Keurig look like. Okay, not really, I have to look at them everyday, but you get the drift.
Even Bella tries snagging my goods.... maybe she wants to rrrrrrrrooolll up the rrrrrrrriiim to win. Either way, get lost Bella, this is mommy's poison!

The other love of my life, other than Vince, of course.


The Toronto Maple Leafs.
(Okay, this is the baby Leafs pictured, but most of them play on the major team now. So it counts!)
My favorite player is centered, #43. (or #13 in minors) Nazem Kadri.


He was recently demoted to the third line and I am not too happy about that, but we have a few new players on the team that are really shining. It helps that one of the new guys hoisted the Stanley Cup last season!
During the summer I am lost without the Leafs. They are the only sports team I follow religiously, and when they are in off-season, I have nothing to follow or watch on t.v. *sob* *sob*  I need to figure out a way to get the Leafs all year. I don't need all the teams, I don't follow all the teams, but if I could get the Leafs playing all year round..... life would be perfect then now wouldn't it?!


Ah, but a gal can dream can't she??

So tell me what you can't live without... and I mean besides the obvious: family, air, food, etc....

  1. Of course you can dream, that's one thing we do so well, right! I have to admit too, that secretly I just adore Thing 1 and Thing 2 and always get such a kick out of seeing random (usually children) wearing those little red outfits, and I always have to shout out, (really I do too) Thing 1 and Thing 2 !

  2. There is nothing like sitting outdoors in a little cafe drinking espresso doble with more sugar than should be legal, in Buenos Aires on a cool summer evening, listening to the bandolino inside and watching the people walk by on the sidewalk.

  3. I'm a hockey fan, too, but a NY Rangers fan. My favorite player is Henrik Lundqvist.

  4. Thanks for telling us about the two things you can't function with out...

    There are too many things that I treasure through out my day but a nice cup of coffee in the morning definitely takes the cake!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "T" - Terrific job!

    A+

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
