Weekend Anthology ~ October 10, 2015

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

It feels like we’re neck deep in pumpkin, apples and leaves (yay!). I’m feeling pretty reflective these days. We had a lovely summer full of camping, visits with friends and Edmonton firsts (Folkfest, Instameets and visits to Drumheller, butler-service). We had a constant influx of friends visiting including two of my besties who naturally joined me for some temporary, sparkly tattoos.

I’m looking forward to a few fall firsts: my first 5km, my first Halloween in our new city and learning to use In Design on my own after a fab two day class here.

But I’m also mega-stoked for some catch up on some dark TV like Game of Thrones, Fear the Walking Dead and Scrotal Recall.

Crafternoons are on the horizon – maybe some macramΓ© or screen printing. Time to focus on my health, too. Enough with this baby chub I say! Snowboard season is coming and we’re not far from some world class powder.

So in the spirit of gratitude, I thought I would share some ephemera I’m thankful for (other than, of course, family, friends and good fortune).Β 

Our recent trip to Vancouver – lots of fresh (cheap) sushi, sun and toes in waves a la above.

Apples: apple pumpkin pie, apple crumble, apples in smoothies and the winter apple tree in the backyard and my partner the picker. Bring on the Thanksgiving apple pie!

The right to vote – Canada’s election day is around the corner and I’m excited to exercise my franchise.

What do you get when you combine precious stones, moonlight and essential oils?Β Lady Magic sprays – love love love waning moon mist. I’m also stoked to check out YEG-based Pura Botanicals.

Marianne Williamson and Kundalini yoga. Discovered both of these at Bloom. My spirit’s all fired up and I’m listening to A Woman’s Worth. Unleash the Queen.

Messages like this from Sarah Von Bargen – don’t compare thyself to Bey.

Coleman Hell is my new musical guilty pleasure – specifically All the Monsters.

Have you heard about the new super cheap flights to Iceland from Toronto by Wow Air? Time to start trip planning.
