September 6, 2017


Weather: 1 , Shannon: 0. It's rare that I don't check the weather before heading out, but it's been so nice lately I didn't bother. And I totally got stuck in the rain! Huge downpour this afternoon and I got caught in it, but thankfully I was able to seek reprieve under business tower awnings for the worst of it, and hopped from awning to awning until finally braved the open air and getting into the subway. What a day.


Spent a lot of the day resting but when I had some energy I worked on my Etsy store. Almost ready for the launch. We also had a weird day here. I woke up not being able to hear out of my right ear very well and then the smoke from fires from the U.S. totally encased Vancouver. It even got super dark because it was so thick. Was a good day to stay inside and rest.

Oh no about the rain Shannon! It's always the way, isn't it? Ontario can be so unpredictable that way. :(

I decided thanks to all the crazy storms to put off my Etsy launch until next week. With so much flooding, not sure anyone's going to want mermaid energy ATM. I'm hoping next week. Things feel really "off" here in general with the smoky skies returning and the heat so intense. Supposed to start cooling off starting tomorrow.

Wow, what a tumultuous day Suzie! I hope your hearing is okay now. The smoke seems to really have been affecting things. What a year. But ... in better news, awesome to hear that you are almost ready for your Etsy sale! Everything looks amazing!! Sounds good to follow your intuition on when to open up the sale. Waiting til it feels right sounds like a good plan. Happy to hear things are almost ready and looking great!

Sadly the smoke is still really bad here but things are cooling down a little. Thank you! So glad the store looks good and yes, I must wait. Everything feels really weird right now and with Irma coming, mermaid jewelry might be considered a little insensitive.
