October 24, 2013


Yesterday I had the opportunity to get out and about for a bit. I remembered (again) how much it nourishes me to walk around the city with my camera and stopping in at a coffee shop with my journal. I'm going to make the effort to do this even more regularly.


I'm almost completely unpacked, but one of the last sets of stuff to disperse was this odd array of tech and paper.  Cuz I have tons of both, and I use them liberally!


I cooked the sausages last night for my favourite soup! And... they were super dry and kind of tasted like shoe leather, LOL. But I did it and I'm happy with myself. I also know that the next batch will be even better. Now that I have done it once it is far less intimidating and I know the food can only improve from here.

Tech and paper! You are doing great Shannon. You're almost done, I am so impressed.

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Shannon, I love how this move has really made it clear what the core priorities are for you. Tech and paper ftw!

Wow, Suzie, WTG! What a big effort it must have been to make sausages. I am thoroughly impressed. So sorry they didn't turn out the way you hoped. Still, it's an amazing achievement!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Oh, and late add for me :)

Suzie Ridler said...

Very cool image Jamie! And yes, so important to know what nourishes us. I hope you can do that more regularly too.

And some for you Shannon when it comes to knowing what stuff we need and want!

Thanks Jamie. It was a big project and I learned so much.

Wow that is an awesome mural Jamie, and it's amazing what you can see simply being around the city. Good reminded to always have camera on you and keep eyes open. I love journalling out and about!

I'm so sorry to hear you sausages were dry and kinda like shoe leather Suzie, but I"m still super impressed that you tried making them. I'm also impressed you are going to try again! Way to go!

And YES - Tech and Paper is definitely the Shannon way. Again, defying contridictions by embracing opposites! hahahah!
