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. I'm craving Outlander, and looking... Continue Reading →


Cello, chocolate, transit and tofu

The past 3 days have been fantastic. It started with pancakes and worked out beautifully. Lots of food, adventure, reading, music, friends and bliss. The bus driver and I are already like old friends -- "Folks, we're taking a short detour and will be back on track in a moment." Me: Where the heck are we going?! A... Continue Reading →

Benevolent Chaos 4.0

Day 2/Week 1: Today is Wednesday. We've been in the new office space all together (BB) for 2 days. I'm already in love. It is so great to have everyone under 1 roof again, to have a space for supplies and my own private office. The team is back in the double digits and multi-lingual,... Continue Reading →

I've eaten plenty of chocolate, travelled the city, found something new to cherish and something new to hope for. And I am euphoric. My phone is dead, my blanket is warm and... Continue Reading →

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 →

Notes on the tail-end of the week: I couldn't sleep. Thursday was a bit of a blur; rather indistinct. Sorry, Wednesday -- it is currently 1:17am on Thursday, hence the post title. But when I went to sleep, though I didn't stay that way, it was Wednesday. Wednesday was a blur. Right here, right now,... Continue Reading →

Rough seas

Moral of the story: Everything is connected. And sometimes all you can do is wait. Lately, I've been living day by day and week by week, being as flexible as I can while still striving for peace and continuity in the office and out of it. It has been long! I can hardly wait to...

Best of 48

via Daily Prompt: Flavorful It was a really great 2 days. Mom and I went exploring in New West, and had lunch on a superb patio steps away from the Fraser when the sun was shining and the flavor was mouthwatering. I will be back! 🙂
