I had a really, really, really shitty start to the week. Multiple things have gone wrong both on the client front and on the staff front. I came in to work early this morning to deal with some things, but really all I wanted to do was curl up in fetal position, suck on my thumb, and rock back and forth.
While I was deep into doing some research, Sonia walked into my office and put a cup of coffee on my desk. I was like, uh, what’s this? She said she brought me coffee because she knew I was having a shitty week.
Sometimes, things can get shitty in life. But then when you have friends like Sonia, who reads your mind before you even realize how you are feeling, the shitty-ness all of a sudden does not seem so bad.
I found Jewels napping next to her book. It must have been a boring read.
If you have been following this blog for a while, you would have read about Baby Bear. If not, here are some links to get you caught up.

My own reflections of Baby Bear
Adventures of Baby Bear
As Savanna gets older and we “baby” her less, Josh also babies Baby Bear a little less. Having said that, he still takes Baby Bear to the park in the summer when we go play, and always brings her on vacations and ski trips.
Today, we were going out to run errands, and Josh brought Baby Bear. He likes tucking her in his jacket facing out, “so she can see where we are going.”
I love it that he hasn’t outgrown Baby Bear.
Last winter was brutal. At least one person was sick in the house at all times for 10 weeks straight. I felt so beaten up by bronchitis.
Aside from all the regular preventative measures like taking vitamin C, zinc and echinacea, this year I thought I would try a diffuser with essential oils.
The older I get, the more hippie I have become.
Anyway, I got a basic diffuser and some “Thieves”. Apparently some grave robbers used this particular blend to prevent getting sick from all the crap they breathe in when they open up a grave. I’ll report back at the end of winter how this goes.
I thought I’d dry something different today. Focus on the simple lines and the gradient light. The result wasn’t quite I had in mind, but I am glad I experimented.
Tonight, I will be paying for not regularly uploading my photos and posting them on my blog. I am soooo behind.
Every time I see the rack of dumbbells in the gym, I stare at their shadows for a long time. There is something fascinating about the shadows–they are so lively, even when the dumbbells are so heavy and still.
It doesn’t snow much in Vancouver. This is the first year in my 24-year memory of Vancouver that we have received this much snow in the city. I did a photo shoot at Pacific Spirit Park yesterday, and came home and told Josh about how beautiful the woods were.
Today he asked me if I could take him to “the beautiful place” I talked about. So between running errands and going to our dinner plans, we squeezed in some time for a short walk through some wooded areas in the park.
