Drop by for a visit!

don't call it a comeback...

ok, admittedly, its been a while

i can't really even use christmas as an excuse
for the long absence that has kept me
from the lady its been 
since i last posted.

instead of trying to update on the previous months
how about we stick to the present
where things are good!

1. christmas and new years brought 
lots of good friends together
in our house.

doug's bro and his gf came in from calgary
and we were happy to spend lots of time
with them!

2. i've been fighting sickness for the past week,
and sunday it finally stuck.
i spent most of yesterday in bed, and drank
two huge containers of juice

now i feel like a superhero!
(on account of the sugar!)

3. last year for christmas, 
the missus got me mukluk making
classes...i kind of ditched on them

however! i spent christmas break working
on my first vamp. after near 12 hours of beading, 
here is the first one!

i shall post the progress for anyone
interested in how long it might take for
a decently busy girl to make a pair
of mukluks....hopefully i can wear them 
next winter.

4. my mac basically exploded last week
without the fire or sparks.
but, my hard drive died, so i've lost
almost everything that i've ever had.

kind of the worst feeling ever.

on that note, if anyone knows someone who
can help with CHEAP data recovery on a
mac hard drive (external, no casing)
let me know, yo!

5. i'm feeling optimistic in the new year
about work
about life
and about posting more to this damn blog

hopefully things stay interesting and the 
post will start a flowin'!

now my feet won't touch the ground...

happy fall
the drift has changed
the air is crisp at night
farewell summer, feel you next year.

life is beautiful.
i am in a space right now where i feel that i am almost too happy
like something is bound to fall out of place
or off kilter
i am perfectly balanced
thank you karma, i could not ask for more.

i've been going to yoga a lot lately and really enjoying it
i dream of going to a warm place, serene with foliage and beauty
to practice
open my heart
listen to my prana
i want to do this...
(thanks mb for the inspiration)
i've taken a lovah.
thanks for this one too mb...
it's my background on my berry!
enjoy the warmth well it lasts...
be well

cruel cruel summer...

i'd like to think that as winnipeggers, 
we're rewarded once a year for living 
in winnipeg with a magical and 
WARM summer

this is not the case.
it did make for an amazing
red wine date with super (cape)
friends d+a on the balcony

here are some of the reasons i haven't 
posted in forever.


kuno, swiss brother and lifelong friend
came and spent 39 days here

it was amazing having him back
but it made for a very very busy 
few weeks. 

we went to falcon lake with his whole family, 
went on a roadtrip to paint lake and thompson, 
and lots of other fun winnipeg stuff!

oh, his brother got married to a winnipegger!

(also, one of my dearest friends from new brunswick came to visit!
just for one day.... :'( )

erin lived in appenzell too, but instead of being a maid,
she got to attend school with kuno

...she bought this dress for real...and wears it out. love her!


concerts. i went to a ton of them this summer.

bloc party, tv on the radio, coldplay (row 18...still not as cool as 5)

and the crew of no doubt!! (love the new single)


VEGAS!! 21 family members for my little sis' 21st.
crazy traveling with so many people

unfortuantely my camera died halfway through the trip!!


it was this handsome mans dirty turdy birthday (aka 30th)

i'm dating an old man, and i love it (and him).


i'm now using this blog as a forum to say
i miss this lady. more hangouts.

thats all i've got for now. taking doug darling 
out this evening for a fancy schmancy birthday dinner!

peace and love peas and lurve!!!

xoxo d.

oh. p.s on a sad note, my little fishy friend 
marty mcfish floated on up to the fishbowl in the sky.

people think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. but a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. a true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.
