February 24, 2015


Yesterday I showed you the pretty side of the "new computer" shift around. This is the side that shows you all the things that got shifted and need a home.  


I finished my February book for the Book to Film Challenge... In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex. It was a challenging read on so many fronts, the whole non-fiction narrative element, the very challenging survivalist theme and the whole whaling thing. I am happy that I read it, but it was a rocky road and it was helpful to shift my thinking partway through and embrace that I was reading it purposely as a challenge ( being a challenge). I am still mulling a lot of it over, but it's good to process it.


Yesterday was just mostly grocery shopping but I did get a chance to work on the mini hamburgers I am making for my friend Miranda's daughter. This is the cheeseburger, LOL. They were fun to make and it was a nice change of pace.

That cheeseburger is adorable, Suzie - and what a GREAT photo!! Straight out of a magazine.

Suzie Ridler said...

Thank you Jamie!!! I had a blast making the burgers and think the cheeseburger is my favourite. :)

Oi! Yes, well, there is organizing and letting go to be done, isn't there but I know when you are done with it you will love your space and be so happy there. You can do it!

Shannon said...

I think you need to put your Oodle Army to work Jamie! Ask them to clean up while you sleep...and keep it quiet! Blue Gnome could even help out :)

OMG, that is the cutest cheeseburger ever Suzie! What a fun project! I think it is gorgeous and so much fun :)

Late add from me!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

LOL!! I completely love that idea, Shannon! Come on, Oodles and Gnome, get to it!

And I'm sorry the book has been so challenging on so many levels. I hope ultimately you feel good about having it as a challenge.

Suzie Ridler said...

Yes, get the Oodles to clean up for you!!! Oodles of help.

Thanks Shannon! The burgers were so much fun to make. I love that she wants to feed them to her Barbie, that cracks me up.

Shannon, way to go on that challenge. When I read Moby Dick I think it took me a year of reading on my lunches at COPA and this books sounds just as challenging. Good for you for getting through it and I still agree about the non-fiction narrative, so weird!

Shannon said...

I'm definitely happy I was able to complete reading the book, but I was surprized at how many different things came up. I'm ready for a break though, would love some awesome stories about awesome women to get me back to my normal!

Wow, a year to read Moby Dick eh Suzie? I'm impressed you did it! Retrospectively, I would have liked to read it first. I totally need to find someone that reads more nonfiction and see if I was picking up something weird, or if it's just the norm.
