Shannon

It was very nice to get back to Art-Day-ing. And from a distance, it's very odd to see that this was my palette and colour choices! :)


Suzie

My big news from the weekend was winning tickets to Eat! Vancouver and unexpectedly getting to meet Anna Olson. A total dream come true for me! She immediately gave me a hug and said how glad she was to finally meet me. ME! LOL. I am still on cloud 9 about it. I wasn't even sure I was going to go and I did and heard her voice and there she was doing a demo.

Random: May 3, 2015

Jamie

This week I was thinking about the old pub nights I used to throw. This is actually our DS Pub Night - our team that worked together went out the first Tuesday of every month to hang out and have a beer together. I wonder what they are all doing today. Well, I know what Shannon's doing ;)


Shannon

This was the closest I could find to random this week, and that is a book series that I'm am FLYING though as record pace. This is the first book, and I read 5 books and 2 novellas in less than 2 weeks. It's such a great series, following a ex-mercenary sword wielding woman who navigates through a messy near future that's has magic, shapeshifters as well as technology (although it's not very reliable). I read lots of the books with a sleeping cat in my lap, I wonder if I'll remember that when I remember the books later. I hope so.

I can't quite believe that Justin and I have celebrated so many anniversaries - many at this wonderful restaurant, Kalendars. We stopped here for dinner after a day at the Art Gallery of Toronto. We saw the wonderful Emily Carr exhibit (her trees made me cry) and also the popular Basquiat exhibit, which really inspired me to be more direct and brave in my own creative work. We had a wonderful, wonderful day!


Shannon

After a week of very little sleep plus lots of tears, I promptly got sick. Sigh. After everything, it was nice to have a rest.

A sad, sad day as we said goodbye to this sweet soul. He was loved every day and he will continue to be in our hearts forever.


Shannon

This was truly one of the hardest days. I'm thankful for the calm moments like this, where I could hold him calmly as he slept before it was time to say goodbye. Lots of tears, but also so many wonderful memories throughout the years.

I had a truly wonderful time out at choir Wednesday night. What fun to step out into the street and sing!

It has begun...

Yesterday I made a new friend! I was out in the garden checking on the tulips and I heard a "Mew!" I looked up and there was this little guy standing on the fence. He immediately jumped down and started hanging out with me. What a treat. If I was able to read his collar right, his name is Beau.



Suzie

I had these cute little bow charms for wine glasses and decided to put them on my skull container of salt.

Suzie

It was a pretty wet Monday but the sun did try and come out just like the neighbourhood roses. I went out and got groceries, picked up Reg's coffee and filmed this Instant Pot video. Then I crashed!!!
