August 2, 2017


Yesterday was the first day I have had off since I can't remember when! I went to the gym, read, even did some art and signed up for a couple of new classes. I am excited to spend some time filling my well. Justin and I went out for a short walk and were surprised to see these cones set up for filming - in our neighbourhood! Hard to imagine. Still, pretty cool.


This has been my view as of late. LOTS of resting going on.


Been a weird day. Woke up and couldn't see the mountains because of all the smoke. I couldn't smell it but my eyes wouldn't stop watering when I went out to get food. I should have stayed in but I was out of everything. Now that the moving has been put on hold for a few months I gave myself a day to rest a lot. I also used the Instant Pot to help make food and keep things in the apartment cool. It was nice to have a day that wasn't in crisis mode.

Yay for a day off and it sounds like you used it well!!! And filming in your hood? How cool is that?!

Shannon said...

YAY for time off, Jamie! I'm so glad you were able to do some relaxing, some art-ing and I'm totally imrpssed you got out the gym too! And wild that there was filming in the hood... that's definitely a first!

I'm glad you had a crisis-free day, Suzie. More of those for you, please! I love this photo of the flower, it's so gorgeous. That's brutal that the smoke is so bad you couldn't see the mountains. They seem to keep happening every year. Eep.
