Conversation on the margins (3)

The conference my sister and I attended in February brought together indigenous and non-indigenous youth from across the country.

Off at 5:

I did a bad thing. I stayed up to an ungodly hour -- new design! Eeek! Now I'm grinning like a fool 'cause I'm ready to crash. I've done laundry, groceries, some reading, writing and been well entertained by way of Youtube, and feasted on a really excellent batch of popcorn.

Over dinner and drinks

Wild Rice Bistro and Old Crow Coffee shop have attached themselves to my heart. And I appreciate that there are a handful of people I can be at ease with.

The Sammy Shuffle: part 24

I unknowingly bought my first pair of jeggings a few weeks ago. I needed a new pair of black pants, and that's what I got. I'm not crazy about naming/labeling/categorizing everything in the bloody universe, so if you want more detail on any of my textiles, it's best you just come see me 🙂 My... Continue Reading →

Carry the warmth

via Daily Prompt: Recreate Summer is fading but the warmth has not deserted. I love that feeling of warmth and love from the universe. I've just switched from bare arms to my bear blanket 🙂 Bring on the fuzzy socks!
