March 1, 2016


It was weird to have my day start without the BtS. I could see how much space that it opened up and that is so helpful to me right now, especially as I sincerely want to write a book. Plus, I'm pretty exhausted with everything that's been going on so taking at least this week to just sleep in a bit more is also nourishing. But I also noticed pretty quickly that it's been my creative practice, that it's been my channel for the unending surge of thoughts and ideas and it's important I keep that energy flowing out of me. I tried creating a blog post to hold the day and it was great. I could do it bit by bit throughout the day, it helped me bring closure to the day and gave me a tangible expression of what was swirling within. However I then did have a dream that was clearly about me being creative and charming but not listening to the Universe. Hmmm....


It's been a fun process to open the boxes of kitchen stuff, especially when I have a box full of all keepers. I hope that keeps coming!


I had one of the longest days ever going downtown to see a specialist and thought I found refuge at a lovely cafe which turned out to be so anti-social and they killed my sandwich with a panini press. So glad that day is OVER!!!!

Wow, that was quite the blog post Jamie! Amazing and with audio? It looks like creativity is brewing a lot and getting a break from your regular schedule opened up a bit of a window to something else.

Shannon, I seriously have Corningware envy! Yay to getting out the kitchen stuff.

Late add from me. Photo really exemplifies how unfriendly that cafe was, LOL.

Shannon, I am just loving seeing your kitchen stuff. It really does feel like you. I'm so glad you're making home :)

Aw, Suzie, that sucks, especially when you were looking for a bit of respite. Boo, meanies who kill sandwiches!

Change is all around us, isn't it? How strange it must be not to do the BtS Jamie, I hope it opens up for new and even greater possibilities! Including, apparently "listening". The universe likes to be direct sometimes, eh? Power in clarity!

Ugh, sounds like a brutal day Suzie! Appointment days can be so far, such a crapshoot, you never know if it will be smooth sailing or challenges all around...and that goes for anything/everything that happens on the day, let alone the appointment!

I'm so glad you two are enjoying the Kitchen pics, it's been a lot of fun to go through. There are so many items I just adore that have come out of the boxes.
