A Fall Fern

September 4, 2014

It’s been a banner day. All I seem to be talking about lately is food and clothes, so what the heck? I’ll keep with that for today. Also know that several Interior Design graduates have found work as Junior Interior Designers. Incredible. The Fall is really shaping up. Today I lucked out and found these […]

Working the night shift

September 4, 2014

I filled in for the evening person today and had the luxury of starting work at 1:30 this afternoon. This allowed me to get up at my leisure, do some laundry, make some chai chia pudding with cashew milk and do a bit of sewing. After cutting out my bogus first try at a collar […]

I forgot about Cabbage Rolls

September 2, 2014

I met this donkey yesterday at the meat shop and listened to him make happy, loud crunchy sounds as he munched cob after cob of corn. He and his buddy were really into the corn. They pulled the husks off with their teeth sometimes, but mostly, they ate the corn husk and all. CRUNCH! Tonight […]

Maybe not a total bust. But pretty close.

September 1, 2014

We decided to celebrate Labour Day with a little day trip out to the boonies. We were looking to take photos of waterfalls in Cascade Falls – just outside of Mission. We brought a pile of gear – tripods and lenses and a polarizing cover so we could take some long exposure photos in the […]

With any luck, this will become a dress

September 1, 2014

It started out pretty well – I even had to sew in 2 darts. But I hit a snafu with the collar. I didn’t quite line up the fabric correctly and it doesn’t meet at the sides – where the seam meets for the shoulders. And when I tried to use the seam ripper on […]

We need to paint everything bubblegum pink

August 30, 2014

This afternoon we watched The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson and I loved, loved, loved it. I loved the story and the look of the movie. There were so many pink walls and men wearing purple suits. There was also some wallpaper that reminded me of the carpet from The Shining. After watching such […]

This was us! Sixteen years ago…

August 28, 2014

CHEESE! We did it! On Friday, August 29th, we’ll have been married 16 years. And yes, we DO pose like this all the time. At home. On the Skytrain. Everywhere. When we go out for our anniversary dinner tomorrow night, we will pose like this until our dinner is served. Also, CHEAT MEAL! Woohoo! I […]

Mission accepted

August 27, 2014

Tonight after work, I recognized this man at the bus loop. Excitedly, I grabbed my business card out of my purse and happily walked up to him. I introduced myself to him and asked if he was at the Fusion Festival earlier this summer. He said that he was. I explained to him that I […]

A couple of NOOOOO!s

I tried to ignore it, but I couldn’t. See that tree turning orange in amongst the green ones? NOoooooooo! It’s happening all right. Time for Autumn. Also of note, the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is happening September 8th. Just over a week away. NOOOO! But mooncakes! YUM. Time to hit up TNT Grocery store for treats. […]

Planning shmanning

August 25, 2014

I’m not much for planning things in advance. Not even a little bit. For work, I like to show up and see what the day has in store for me, which is probably why I find the portfolio shows tough to take care of. You can’t really do that all in one day.  Same with […]
