Shannon

I'm still feeling very sore today so I kept things pretty low key, including reading (shock, shock!), and also finally caught up with the Richard III with Ian McKellan in it. It's such a crazy story, by Ian McKellan is great, as is Maggie Smith and Jim Broadbent and a few actors I didn't know. OH! But Carson from Downton Abbey was in it, he was good too. Kinda brutal story though, eep. I need something with unicorns next. Suggestions are welcome!!



Suzie

I wish I could have gone for brunch to McD's to confirm that it is now available all day starting yesterday but I was too busy. Today would have to do. That said, not all breakfast items are available!

I didn't take many pictures today, it was an out day and I often forget to do that but I had lunch + snack all in one when I got home and crashed on the couch for the rest of the day/night. Oh, the excitement! At least raspberries were on sale (and pretty good ones for February!).



Suzie

I had the craziest day! Busy from the second I got up. Went to the post office (with a sale, yay!), to the library, then to the Value Village sale, then came home and did a photoshoot for this Dairyland post where I was like Godzilla, went to drawing class, had coffee with a friend and then came home and made dinner. I just finished the Dairyland post and am so tired! I hope they appreciate how much effort I went to with the photoshoot, editing... I know I appreciated all their products and the cookies they sent me. What a weird but pretty awesome day.

Shannon

I'm trying out a new book group and this is the little info box that pops up when you make a comment. I think it's going to be a good fit :)



Suzie

I had a doctor's appointment but managed to get some painting time in and had a surprise special delivery arrive at my door too! A pretty good day.

What a wonderful day Justin and I had yesterday! The weather was spectacular - sunny, clear blue skies and double digit temperatures. First we went to the Leslieville Flea at the Distillery District where the sellers were so lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. I bought a wonderful pair of fingerless alpaca gloves. Then we walked for a while and came across this big vintage/antique market at St, Lawrence Market. It was fun to look at all the stuff. Next time you visit, Suzie, we should go!


Shannon

This is the one pic I took from Journal Jam! Amazing how once the talking starts, I completely forget to take pictures! It was another great Journal Jam! Way to go Jamie for being a great host and bringing an awesome evening of great company and journalling.



Suzie

After the night of music on Friday we finally got to the kung fu school's holiday party. It was postponed because of the crazy snowstorm we had a couple of weeks ago. Reg Mcd the event and performed musically too.

Jamie

Once again I woke up with this creative idea that wouldn't let me go. I think Kim must be right - a quieter schedule is doing wonders for my creative fire! It's a concept that really just applies to me personally, at least for now. I woke up and journaled it all out and it is already impacting my energy, my mood and my choices for the better!

A bit of a different view of Journal Jam! It was so great to have everyone together and share such wonderful treats - the creativity, the conversation, the food and a wonderful evening. I am so glad that I trusted my instincts and started hosting this event!


Suzie

It is never easy to photograph at night, even with stage lights, especially with my old point and shoot but here is an image from our night out at a club with a KISS cover band. There was an AC/DC one too and Alice Cooper. I think I lost some more of my hearing but it was a fun night.

Jamie

Yesterday was a big work day plus starting to get ready for another great Journal Jam. I wish you could be with us for that, Suzie! I am a little stressed about how much there is to do but hey, there are always kittens to encourage me :)
   

Shannon

I'm continuing my February goal-ish/reminder/incentive thing of if I can get out today, DO IT! And I did. Good thing too, as I had to return some library books. Had nothing to do with like..getting more library books. Oh, no... that had nothing to do with it ;)


Suzie

Most of the snow is finally gone. I returned library books and got out for a beautiful walk in un-forecasted sunshine which was such a treat.
