About me

Welcome to my Blog

(Updated January 2011)

The picture above is Kyah, taken around the winter of 2002.



I ‘m a Canadian woman. Happily married, I live with my husband, two little ones, and a Standard Poodle in Alberta


All of my family and many of my friends live elsewhere on the planet, so blogging is a means to connect. I worked as an analytical chemist for about 20 years.  I recently left my job (four year ago now!) to become a stay at home Mom but I don’t think I’ll have any more time for blogging than before. Its a busy job 🙂


Truthfully, I also enjoy meeting new people, learning ‘stuff’, and having a good laugh. That’s about it.

Why Kyahgirl and who is Mother Hen? My first post in November 2005 explains all that:





Interests: People mostly, Perfume, Perfumery, Dogs, Dog Behaviour and training, Animal Welfare, Human Potential, Childrearing, Puzzles, Reading, Blogging 🙂

    Ma famille possède le Camp de Dalton Fishing sur le Lac Shikwamkwa dans Ontario du Nord. J’ai cru que je passerais et dirais ‘salut’. Toute ma famille est en haut le Nord, je vis à Oklahoma maintenant, mon mari est d’ici.

    Thanks weirsdo-both my Belgians would frequently cause people to stop us in the street and exclaim over them. Nothing to do with me of course but I was happy to bask in the glory!

    You’re so beautiful, Kyahgirl!

    I mean, i knew that already without having seen you. But now i know that your outsides match your insides!

    A pleasure to know you, ma’am.
