Walking in a Winter Wonderland - well, almost!

IceI've had such a struggle with walking this winter. I convinced myself to go out today and brave the ice with my funky ice-pick straps that actually work with Vibrams (though only just - they are a bit finicky and need lots of readjusting, which is still better than cracking my head open on the sidewalk).

Baby equipment rental business for sale

Just wanted to let everyone know that my Calgary-based business Little Traveller is for sale due to our expanding family (a new baby is due in March). This well-established, home-based baby equipment rental business is a perfect part-time opportunity for a stay-at-home mom or someone looking for more flexibility with their hours. The asking price is $10,000. I spend around 12-18 hours per week on it.

Until the sale is finalized, Little Traveller will continue to provide top-notch customer service over the holiday season. For more information, contact Kara at 403-242-4067 or email
