November 9, 2016


Yesterday I sat down to do my morning pages after going to the gym and look who kept me company - Shibumi! It was lovely until she saw a squirrel and with paws up on the sill, swish, swish, swish, I got her tail in my face. LOL!


Not a lot of pictures today (amazing how much that can differ day to day), but I love this one of a 2-page prep for Journal Lab in Fauxbonichi week! I like doing 2 days at a time (especially because using stamps can be a bit mess and it's nice to have some dry-time for them), and then throughout the day I can decide what to fill in the rest of the page. I never quite know how it will turn out.


We drove to the music store to get Reg a bday gift and I thought this was a good way to show you how you go north to reach downtown and then farther north are the mountains in Vancouver. Look how moody they look! This was the first sunny day in ages. A gift for Reg it seems.

What a cool self-portrait with Shibumi!!!

Shannon, two days prep at once sounds smart to me.

I love that picture of you and Shibumi, Jamie! It totally feels like a portrait. I would have no idea a tail swishing in the face would be happening soon thereafter.

It's amazing that even though I read that this is North, it feels SOUTH! Just by the picture. I guess I am so Toronto-bodied that the water feels S. A beautiful pic of the mountains that's for sure! I hope the present shopping went well.

I agree, such a good photo and Jamie, your newsletter this week was so powerful! Good job.

I know, LOL. Now that I realize I live in Toronto's upside down world, I can be a little less critical of myself for having a hard time navigating around Vancouver. I've lived in a lot of places but this one is particularly challenging.
