September 19, 2013


Coworking at Tanya's was such a blessing for my heart yesterday. I was so surrounded by love - hers and all three of her cats! What a joy.


The Moonhas been so full and bright these days, and sometimes peeks out a bit early. I know it's a fuzzy photo but it's really taken me aback how amazing and different it can look day by day.


Had a great time chatting with Shannon for Hexed and also doing a major photo shoot and then video day all dedicated to my new blender. Reg ended up being my camera man for the "first smoothie" shoot and it worked out great! And, this blender kicks ass!

Jamie, you look totally happy and in your element!

Shannon, the moon has been crazy-bright here too. Oh and the camera will sometimes automatically want to shoot macro. If you choose the landscape setting, it should focus on the distance I think. I love the photo as is though, spooky!

It was wonderful being surrounded by Tanya's three cats while having a visionary morning together!

Lol, I was like, what's a 'moonhas'? I love that you can see the moon. I rarely get a view of it with the way our house is situated. Maybe I'll get out and see if I can find the Full Corn Moon tonight! Thanks for sharing the view from your place, Shannon.

Wow, that blender looks awesome. What a wonderful addition to your test kitchen! That's fabulous that it passed the smoothie test. That's really the core of a good blender! Enjoy :)

Surrounded by cats! That's sounds like an awesome day Jamie. what a lovely, lovely picture! :)

WOohoo to kick ass blenders Suzie and I'm so glad Reg could be your camera man. I can't wait to see the video!

Thanks for the heads up Suzie, my camera definitely wanted to macro-in-on-the-moon. I tried every type of shot on the wheel but they all were various different kinds of weird, lol.

And oops! My sticky spacebar strikes again and creates new words, like Moonhas! Sounds like a cocktail!

Moonhas is very poetic-sounding! The full moon is making me have a hard time sleeping, as usual.

Shannon, most camera will want to immediately focus on the glass but good for you for trying different settings just in case. Sometimes that works. Also, trying to take the photo away from the camera, holding down the button slightly and then moving forward might work but yeah, that's a lot to remember.

The blender decimated the ice and the frozen berries, I was thoroughly impressed.
