In case you missed this on the weekend, I went back, back to blonde blonde! Had a great weekend that started with a cut and colour. Saturday we took EmBot to the Science Centre. It was SO FUN! I’d never explored the whole place so loved all the interactive things you can do there.
Exciting week just passed and I am SO ready for a getaway! Tomorrow I’m scooting up north to the countryside with Barbie to a friends cottage. Give me nature, lake, silence and sunshine. YES PLEASE.
Ate pretty healthy this week and went running a few times. Feels good to hit the pavement.
Got a haircut at Darren’s Studio and had my first spring picnic in the park.
This Week in Venn via SAY Media: The Secret to a Successful Modern Media Brand – I love reading this blog post each Friday. Always an interesting & fresh perspective about marketing, internet and brands.

Discovered the spot where my next Dear Photograph submission will be taken from. Turns out Mum used to hang out exactly where I like to hang out now. Her photo is from the ’70’s I think. Mum, can you confirm? Check out the skyline, or lack there of!
Please be careful this weekend, wear sunscreen, don’t drink & drive, and play safe. May24 is the kick-off to summer, make it a good one! Next weekend is Memorial Day in the USA and I’ll be in the sunshine state soaking up Florida rays. Can’t wait!
it’s a time warp…

a twitter bio is now 160 characters – my how times change. myspace seems so cluttered and ugly now. it’s just a mess of patchy conversations with people i don’t really know. the ones i do know never use it, unless they are in a band but i rarely ever check myspace. it’s the last place i’d look to reach someone.
bondi beach, 2004
i loved living here. these are my uni friends, that’s me across the middle. we used to hang out so hard at that bondi beach. it is a topless beach. at first it was like ‘so weird’ but after a while you get used to it and everyone has their tops off. man it was fun. i miss it. i wanna go back, soon.
Helloooo! It’s Friday and the long weekend is almost here. I’m sitting in my fav office, the cottage side deck. Keri is here and we’re working away. The skies are blue, the air is warm, and it’s not tooo hot yet. Will jump in the lake when that time arrives!
Saw this quote today. I love Dr. Seuss quotes + poems. Another fav is Shel Silverstein and this week I picked up A Light In the Attic and and was pleasantly reminded of his work. Back when I was a teenager I wrote & published a book of poetry. I’ve written about it a few times over the years. 😀
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.”
— Dr. Seuss
Yesterday I checked out a TIFF press screening and went on a massive bike ride. It was so hot but I loved it. My new Schwinn bike is incredibly conformable. It’s still avail at Canadian Tire if you’re in the market for a cruiser. I put a basket and flowers on the back and I smile every single time I look at it.
Sending you sunshine from cottage country,
