April 28, 2016


Yesterday was a bit of a trying day but there will still great highlights, including getting out to choir. We sang a beautiful arrangement of Manic Monday, You can actually see it here at least for a while on Periscope. And on Monday there's a big event to honour Prince. We'll be singing When Doves Cry at Massey Hall. 

It was so exciting to wake up this morning and see that the plants get sunlight in their new spot! I knew this intellectually, but it was that much more power to see it in reality. After taking the picture I promptly fell back asleep :)


I have moved all my "work" stuff out of my crafts room because I couldn't take the crappy internet connection anymore. In some ways I think it's working out because now the mess in the crafts room doesn't upset me as much. I even painted some backdrops for my foodie photos. BTW, I ended up painting over the yellow. I tried. I just don't like that colour.

What a great sunshine picture, Shannon. It's wonderful to see that the plants do, indeed, get light there. Lol, to falling back asleep. It's like once you knew they were good, you could rest.

It seems like it's a time for shifting around and getting sorted. Suzie, the separation of creative space and work space sounds brilliant. I hope it works well for you!

Aw, I missed the window to see Manic Monday! I am glad you got out to choir Jamie, even on a trying day. It's always nice when even on those tough ones we can manage to get in something that feels good and true.

It's so true about the plants! Once I felt like they were okay, I totally konked back out. They seem to be really happy in their new spot, and I am really happy to have a clear counter!

Wow, Suzie the crafty is branching out! I am glad to hear you can move your computer to somewhere where it is more stable. And it's always good to have a spot where stuff can dry undisturbed!!

Darn, the video expired! Me too, so glad you got out to choir Jamie.

Shannon, that's too funny, took a photo and went back to bed. Love it.

Thanks, it's been quite the challenge and change but I heard that it's a good time for doing stuff like this as Mercury goes into, yes, retrograde! It looks like it's already claimed my mouse but if that's all, I'm good.
