Ma saison préférée, c’est l’été! 🌞

La piscine 🏊, la chaleur 🌡️ (même si ça peut me donner la migraine, parfois), les fleurs 🌻 partout, les vêtements courts 👙 et les produits frais 🍓🍉🫐🌽 et locaux ⚜️ dans mon assiette… Vraiment j’adore l’été! 😻

Et toi? Quelle est ta saison préférée? Pourquoi?

My super power 🦸‍♀️: extreme concentration

We know many people who have attention deficit, the famous ADD with or without H. But did you know that the opposite exists?

Well, I wouldn't say it's a diagnosis, but I'm living the opposite: sometimes I'm really TOO focused on what I'm doing. 🧠

To the point of forgetting to go to the toilet… 🚽 or to eat… 🍱

Or finding myself completely frozen in the basement in front of my computer… 🥶

Or to take the leap without common sense when my spouse comes to talk to me in my sewing studio. 😱

The current task is done in a very precise and efficient way, but when I “wake up”, I am always surprised to have been able to forget my environment at this point. 😲

And you, what is your super power? 🦸‍♀️

🌱 Little eco-friendly will become big...

Did you know? Respect for nature, I fell into it when I was little, like Obélix in the magic potion. 😆

My father being a biologist by training, he worked all his life for the Ministry of Environment and Wildlife (and several variations of the name, for the same structure!). 💚 He has worked on the preservation of several species, by studying them, and by participating in the development of guides for the exploitation and protection of forest resources 🌲, hunting 🏹 and fishing 🎣.

From an early age, he taught my sister and me to respect nature, animals, plants and more. It is therefore in my nature to continue on this path. 🌳

I think I have succeeded in transmitting these values to my daughters, since my oldest is going to study environmental sciences when she goes to Cégep, in a little over a year. 💚

And you? How long have you been interested in ecology? Have you started teaching respect for nature to your children? Do you have any tips to share with us?

May the 4th be with you!

On this Star Wars day, I wish you all the strength on your side! 👋

Did you know I'm a science fiction fan? ✨ A bit much geek on the edges, I love science fiction stories, superheroes, in space, in the future, on extra-terrestrial worlds, etc. On the other hand, I admit that I like the Star Trek style much better than Star Wars. 🖖

And you? Do you like science fiction? What is your favorite series?

PS What did you notice in my photo? 🤭

Did you know that… ❓

Am I a fan of escape games? 🔒 On my tablet, in a table game or in rooms, I literally love this type of game! 🙃 If I become a millionaire one day, for sure I will pay myself trips on this theme! ✈️

Until then, tell me, do you like this kind of game? Share your best places, or your best games!
