Hi Monkeys, I trust you are all enjoying the gorgeous weather we are experiencing this summer and finding some time to get out to the beach, cottage, camp grounds, golf course, parks, patios, friends etc. Just when I thought there wouldn’t be much to do this summer, I’m trying to figure out how to fit…

By Carol Ploen-Hosegood | June 20, 2020

As we are living in some trying times with Covid-19, racial discrimination and crazy weather just to mention a few, sometimes it’s hard to stay positive. Watching the news makes you feel like the world is self imploding one day at a time. However, I have to tell you I feel pretty darn good and…

Walk for those who can’t

By Carol Ploen-Hosegood | June 13, 2020

The Movement Centre here in Winnipeg has a special place in my heart. Imagine being told by our health care system that your child will never walk or that they won’t be able to feed themselves and be independent. Or your mother or father will never be able to hug you again. Heart breaking but…

Who needs a laugh?

This gorgeous human came into my life 10 years ago when I was first starting Happy Monkey Club. She was beginning her career at the time as a life coach and as all great relationships begin, we met at Starbucks. The first lesson she taught me was how to pronounce her name properly (Eye-sha) and…

Last weekend I was feeling a little down about staying at home and not being able to help out during Covid 19. I was doing my part by staying at home but I still felt there had to be something more I could do and still be safe. Since the beginning of the stay at…

Thank you for your generosity in a unknown time.

The HMC Rumors comedy night fundraiser was cancelled due to Covid 19 along with the HMC adventure travel trip to Arizona and numerous other monthly outings here in Winnipeg that brings our community together.

What will we learn from Covid-19?

By Carol Ploen-Hosegood | March 28, 2020

These are unprecedented times. Never in anyone’s living memory have we been under a global attack like this. The bad news is that it’s not over yet, the good news is it will be sometime hopefully sooner than later. I saw this article this week that was claimed to be written by Bill Gates but…

What do we do now?

By Carol Ploen-Hosegood | March 22, 2020

I left 2 weeks ago to Kauai with my parents and siblings to celebrate my parents 60th anniversary and poof my world turned upside down. Stock market crashed, we were told to return home, HMC’s Arizona adventure cancelled and the list goes on. I know I’m not alone here. The whole world is in a…

One person in the world, small or big?

By Carol Ploen-Hosegood | March 1, 2020

During our latest adventure to Costa Rica, I had many moments to reflect. I spent time at the top of mountains looking over the clouds, I watched the sun set from high above the forest, I spent time at the beach walking, playing and staring at the ocean and in all of these moments I…
