July 15, 2016


Leave it to Shibumi! The house is in a state of chaos as we get more work done but somehow she managed to turn that to her advantage, finding the coziest elevated spot you could imagine. Hmm... this is making me think of the Princess and the Pea!


On the way to the doctor today I noticed the entire area beside the sidewalk had these purple flowers! It's so wild to see them right by the roadside, and also notice that I've never noticed them before. I have no idea how many years (if any) they've been there, but today I couldn't stop looking at them! I took oodles of pictures, and it's definitely going to come in handy given one of the recent art class exercises is to draw flowers!


Big thing Thursday was getting this huge package from President's Choice! It is all sorts of summer food products for me to test which rocks. I've been going through a down period of making food so this will be inspiring and fun to do.

What pretty flowers, Shannon! That's so cool that you noticed them. It may be you just happened to be there at the right time of year to see them blooming. And yes, great research for art class!

Wow, Suzie, that's quite a package. I hope there are treasures in there!

Shibumi is the queen! LOL. What a character.

Can't wait to see what you do with the flower images in art Shannon, I know that is not one of your typical subjects of inspiration so this is fascinating.

Yes, lots of foodie inspiration came to my door which rocks.

I love that Shibumi got her Princess and the Pea going on, it's nice to see her so relaxed even amidst the chaos. It's going to feel so good when everything is done!

What an awesome goodie basket from President's Choice, Suzie! I hope it helps things feeling more exciting for food.
