Jamie

Chatting with you two was definitely the highlight of my day - but I didn't snap a pic! So, Shibumi will have to suffice. I knew when I brought the tulips home, there would be trouble. I can't wait until the garden comes back to life so I can safely enjoy flowers instead of worrying about them getting eaten! Thanks so much for our good chat yesterday. It really helped.



Shannon

Yesterday was so jam packed, I didn't actually get any pics in! I usually take at least one during stART but my phone was charging at the time so no luck there! I had a great time catching up as we shared what we've been up to. It's been quite a time!


Suzie

This card must be representing our time together for stART because I am not feeling this energy anywhere else. That said, I totally love this card and had a blast hanging out with both of you.

Shannon

There was some movie-ing this weekend! I got out to see Logan *and* I saw Arrival. Those were two really big movies on my to watch list, so it was nice to see them! Both were pretty heavy, and quite good, but I think now it's time for some sunshine-and-rainbows stuff!



Suzie

Yesterday we went out to a fancy pants Jewish deli in Gastown in downtown Vancouver with a friend of ours and a big gang of her friends. It was a dark and depressing day. Great way to make the most of it and nothing like a Reuben sandwich to make things better.

Suzie

Saturday started off as a pretty great day. I did my waffle post, got out to a bakery to try a pie that they have in a city contest and then I came home to find out my site had been hacked. In my attempts to delete the corrupt files, it has now completely disappeared. I can't even get into WordPress at all. My friend is going to work on it but it is not looking good. I went out tonight to listen to some music at a cafe in New West because I knew I would just obsess about it all night. So now I am home.... obsessing about the future of Suzie the Foodie.

Suzie

I finally got back to the studio to help with some cleaning (paying my dues and such), making pieces for a potential glazing class I might be in and finishing off glazing pieces that needed more coats to be food-safe. Then we played D&D at night. OMG, so tired!!!

Shannon

Yesterday was quite the full day! Got some vlogging done (including a Star Trek Book Tag - which will be up next week!), headed to the library and got to have coffee with Jamie! I have had some grumpy days this week, so this was a very nice change of pace to have a day full of awesomeness.


Suzie

This is a crap photo but I didn't have my fancy camera on me but you might be able to see the first cherry blossom in our neighbourhood bloom, middle and to the right. Vancouver Island has been covered in blossoms for a couple of weeks now. I don't remember ever being this far behind them before but our winter was brutal. Had kind of a brutal day myself but also got out to the movies to see Studio Gimli's Spirited Away. OMG, what a weird movie! I think I had blocked it from my mind. Shannon, that one might haunt you. Very good though.

Jamie

I worked hard yesterday. I worked on everything from the podcast to the yearbook and I did it all on very little sleep. At least I had good company :)


Shannon

I've been watching Star Trek during physio and I finished the series. I already miss it. I wish you could put TV series on Shuffle in Netflix so you can just keep watching them. I enjoyed re-watching the series and there was actually 1 or 2 that I don't remember seeing before, even though to this point I have been 100% confident that I have seen them all. Normally that would freak me out (and it does freak me out, a little), but on the other hand it was pretty to see something for what it felt like being the first time.



Suzie

Had a couple of deliveries come for product reviews so I am a tad swamped with trying all sorts of stuff, photographing it and writing about it. It all comes at once. Did lots of laundry too and tried to rest but the phone kept ringing or the doorbell would ring. It was so weird, like life waiting until I was relaxed and then pouncing on me. Think I am going to have to hold off saying yes for a while.

Shannon

I had a major lack of photos as it was an appointment day, so this is when I got home and konked on the couch. Was fun to catch up and watch other people's wrap ups for the readathon I did over the past week.



Suzie

Long day! Did drawing class, blogged rested and then made dinner. Forgot to take photos of the PC matcha cheesecake at class that I brought. Everyone loved it but one person. It has taken me a long time getting used to blogging the day before but one thing I like about it is it seems to be a good thing to do when my energy gets low. Although I did still nap afterwards, LOL.
