About Lorieb

I am the proud mom of three sons, grandmother of four beautiful children and wife of the same man for 35 (and counting) years.  The name Lorieb (pronounced Lor-eee-bee) originated years ago when I was dubbed Lori B by my son’s hockey teammates.  A middle initial (E) was added to further personalize the blog name.

During the cold winter months here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada posts on Lorieb are much more frequent. Subjects on “Random Thoughts” include current events, parenting, sports, health and wellness, relationships, DIY projects and more. Posts here are completely off topic from my business related, gardening blog. The inspiration for these posts come from my daily life and reflect my opinions and experiences. Some are just plain rants.

After 30 years as a medical laboratory technologist in a local hospital, I retired and pursued my dream. Since 2012 I have been the proud owner of GARDENS4U where I design, plant, restore and maintain gardens. Gardening advice and related stories are now all on a blog of their own, also called Gardens4u.

I would love to hear from you at loriebulmer@gmail.com  or within the comment section of each post.  Comments and suggestions for both blogs and website are always greatly appreciated.
