votey time is nigh

I think it was while working at the market Saturday last that I really caught the election buzz & excitement.  It will be interesting to see how the next few weeks play out in our household given our tendencies for politics-stalking on both sides of the 49th parallel.  Unlike our following along with the U.S. political climate, here in Peterborough we have the benefit of being able to talk to friends, family and loads of strangers about what’s going on, what needs to change and who the best person for the job is.  It’s kind of the Peterborough thing to do.  Today I found a blog by local author, Ann Douglas, whose conversational tone and nose to the grindstone enthusiasm for politics and why we should care has completely won me over and will likely provide tonnes of dinner table conversation fodder in this house.  In short, I LOVE this blog.  I’m totally smitten and it’s been a long time since I’ve had that happen.  Not to say that I agree with everything she says, but I really shouldn’t be that with anyone, right?

  1. Hey, thanks for the nice blog mention. BTW — Even my family members don’t agree with everything I say on a day-to-day basis — which is great because it would be so boring if we all acted like clones, right? Granted, it would make for peaceful family dinners — but I’ll take democracy over digestion any day of the week. 🙂

    I found your blog a while ago — can’t remember whether I came at it from art/craft/design circles, Peterborough circles, or whatever — but I remember thinking, “WOW. This Melanie is one interesting person.” You can’t have a blog like this and not be a really fun/fabulous person.

    Happy blogging/creating/voting!

    Ann
