October 24, 2014


Whoa. I was just going to post this and share that it seems like there's this amazing bird magic around right now. I've seen a family of cardinals, a blue jay and this beauty within days of each other. And the whoa as I was uploading the picture and thinking about bird magic, I heard these lyrics in a song I was playing in the background: "Listen to the birds as they fly and we rise."!!!


Oh, what a day. Was excited to get some vlogs recorded and ready ahead of time...only to have them record without audible audio. Sigh. I wasn't up for re-recording, and it totally bummed me out.


Last night Reg and I went to our local gaming store and tried a D&D board game and had a blast. Although at first I was so overwhelmed and didn't understand one freakin' thing that was going on but I decided to relax and just go with it and ask lots of questions. I came up from behind and shot past everyone but then they all shot past by me and I was last. Which was just fine by me. A great night out after the chronic rain finally stopped. For a while.

Oh Shannon, that's heartbreaking! Ugh! Do you know what caused it? Tech stuff like that with limited energy is the worst. I'm so sorry. Hugs.

Shannon, that really sucks. I'm so sorry that happened. I know it's hard but yay you for not pushing through. Man, it's so hard when that happens. I hope everything goes smoothly from here on in.

Omg, Suzie, that picture is creepy. Yay you for relaxing into it and having fun. It's awesome you sped by everyone - at least for a time, LOL! WTG :)

Whoa, there are birds all around you Jamie! Maybe you should be Snow White for Halloween. Or maybe it means taking flight! That bird is such a cutie pie. I hope you find out what kind it is!

Sounds like a fun night out gaming Suzie! What is a DnD Boardgame? I thought the two were separate entities. And boohoo to rain, but that says you are in Vancouver, which is a good thing!

And omg, tech woes so sucky. It was a hard one to let go on but I finally did.

They should call you SlingShot Sue!

I wholeheartedly believe in bird magic! So beautiful Jamie. I wish I knew what it was.

I think the zombie arm was hysterical. They had nothing else there for Halloween so I thought it was quite surreal.

Imagine a board game Shannon that is set in the landscape of the D&D world, like the books and the game.

Bird update. It looks like this is a female cardinal. I didn't think so because it is missing the sort of peak on her head but I've been told that can lie flat or stand up. Mystery solved!

And LOL, I think I should totally be Snow White for Halloween!

Shannon said...

Oh... now I get what a DnD Boardgame would be like...thanks Suzie!
