Day 5 – Mike lost his head, and Michelle and Katie are very blurry… I may not have the hang of my new portrait mode just yet… These 3 literally dragged me out of bed to walk this morning (nope, believe me, I understand the difference between literally and figuratively. Literally is the right word). We walked and I introduced them to Everest. They are now clear on why it is Everest 🤣
Then spent the day meal prepping for the week… it’s been a Sunday. I convinced Katie to keep coming back by dangling the horses as a carrot… she will not miss out on horses to save her life.
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
