July 7, 2014


I went out for a run yesterday! Yay! Yes, a RUN! It's been forever and so far I haven't been able to get into any kind of a rhythm with running but I keep trying. Now that I'm carrying my phone and can take pictures during my warm up and cool down walks, maybe I'll be motivated!


I've recently been watching Document Your Life * videos, and might take a crack at it. I really like that it is a way to actively curate your life for it to be what you'd like. And with that in mind, I made sure to spend some time outside reading during the weekend.

* lots of cats in this video :)


With the hurricane craziness, being stuck inside with no power, I finally finished my Blue Bird! Reg and I also indulged in the Dresden File books which we are both addicted too. First novel I have finished in years. We read until there wasn't a tiny ray of light left.

Hehe, it seems like we all have "a view from here" photos today.

I love the Document Your Life videos! They've been a big inspiration to me. I'd love to see what you create!

I love your bluebird, Suzie! What a cutie? And what are the Dresden File books? I don't know anything about them.

Suzie Ridler said...

Yay to running Jamie!!! How wonderful and yes taking photos during your breaks, love it.

Shannon, that video was awesome and I love all the cats. What a smart way to document your life, monthly. That is awesome. I can totally see you doing it.

Thanks Jamie! The second I finished stuffing him the phone rang about another house showing.

Oh and The Dresden Files I learned from the TV show that was based on the books. Imagine an urban wizard and film noir coming together. A real underdog who is super likeable and funny. Harry is one of my favourite characters of all time now.

That's so awesome that you can take pictures on your run Jamie! At first I thought this was the back yard but I didn't recognize the flower (although...that could have just be my flower knowledge!). YAY to getting out for a Run!!

Congratz on finishing your first novel in years Suzie, that is so inspiring! I am glad you enjoyed it and I had no idea The Dresden Files were books. And sounds like good books at that :) Even without power sounds like a pretty awesome day. And awesome crochet fun too! Yippee!

Thanks for the support on Document Your Life, I wonder if I'll be able to do it. We'll see what July brings.
