What I Read in June

And as you will have seen from the cover image, for the first time in months, I read more than two books in a month, look at that progress. I almost included a fourth book, because I finished it on July 1st and read most of it in June, but I technically finished it in … Continue reading What I Read in June

June in Review

June was such a great month, it was so social, it was a little expensive, but it was so worth it. It was probably the best month since like January 2020, it was great. I travelled (not super far, but did leave the country, went out for dinner, went to a concert, celebrated friends, and … Continue reading June in Review

Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 6

Happy Wednesday friends! Once again, we have a short week in Canada this week (Friday is Canada Day and therefore a holiday) which is exciting if really messing up my work flow.

A Week-ish in Outfits

This was such a weird week, it was supposed to be our first week back in office, but I actually only worked out of the office on Monday, I'll explain why in each day, but it was such a confusing, fun, exciting, productive, week.

Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

So … Continue reading Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

Summer Spontaneity

This week I had some of one of those magic summer days where an amazing day just kind of falls together, the kind of day that hasn't been able to happen since 2019 and just how wonderful they are. It was hot on Monday, the high hit 36C, 40C in the sunshine, 104F and air … Continue reading Summer Spontaneity

Mid-Week Procrastination Vol. 5

A Week-ish in Outfits

This week felt very pre-2020, even though I literally had 4 COVID tests for work and wore a mask all the time, but I was in the office, I was doing work travel, I had a party, it really does feel like I am re-emerging into society. High: I have a few highs this week, … Continue reading A Week-ish in Outfits

A Weekend in Winnipeg

I drove to Winnipeg from where I live, it took about 5 hours. The highway was flooded over then, so I took the detour and ended up on this dirt road. It was actually alright, and I would much rather avoid flooding out my engine and take a few minutes longer to get there. And … Continue reading A Weekend in Winnipeg
