Project 365 ~ Week 24

On Saturday I went to a really interesting workshop called House Heal by Sara Brown Crowder. Sara and I are both a part of the Riverdale Area Workshop Network. The workshop gave me a lot to think about in terms of my relationship with our house.

On Sunday my brother came into town - yay! We had a brunch at our place to belatedly celebrate his birthday and catch up since we don't see each other nearly enough. He's just at the edge of defending his thesis and soon will be Dr. Jay.

Duelling cameras! In our family, the cameras always come out! That's Shannon and my Mom over there going the other direction on the subway.

Justin snapped this shot of me, Jason and his girlfriend, Erin, as we were waiting for the subway.

Monday was a heavy-duty work day. The rain abounded, but I sure got lots done!

Tuesday I went to my naturopath. I'm rocking it out in the healing department!

Wednesday was our last Nia class of the season. We said goodbye to the space we've been teaching in, the Chapel, and came here to the Dance Studio to say hi and let the space know we'd be there in September. Isn't it inviting?

It was a really long week, so Thursday Justin and I treated ourselves and went out to dinner at our favourite local. Even though they are breaking with tradition and not having apricot beer this summer, we still had a good time.

Friday night Shannon and I had a fun time at Value Village. I assure you we came home with considerably less than this!

When I got home it was such a treat to see my hydrangeas blooming beautifully in the backyard.

Project 365 is my attempt to capture a year in my life through a photograph a day. On Saturday's I'll post the week's pics. At the end of the year, I'll create a video of all these precious moments. Feel free to participate at any time. Yours can be Project 347 or Project 292. It's up to you.

I so need that book on healing your relationship with your home! I hope it helps you too.

It's so wonderful to see the picture of Jay! I wish I could have been there. I heard a lot about that cake from Mom too. Yummy.

Shannon looks like a Borg! OMG, that is too funny. Yes, we are ALL camera crazy. I love that pic, that rocks. Oh I miss you guys, can't wait to come home for my visit.

Jamie, that is the cutest picture of you! OMG, so cute!

Hope you share your naturopath's wisdom, they're amazing people.

That dance studio is PERFECT!

So great to see Justin! Apricot beer? OK, I may actually like that.

Did you try on all of those clothes? I am thoroughly impressed and have written way too much.

Jamie, I've had a lot going on offline the past few months, so fell way behind in blog-reading, but I've just caught up on 3 months worth of your posts! (I know I 'see' you at Twitter daily...but it's not the same as seeing you HERE.) I'm so bummed I missed the May 1 dance party, since that's how I discovered your blog two years ago. LOVED the hand dance video...always love your sense of style that you meet up with Shannon on Friday that you focus on 'right clients' (so often we spend so much time focusing on the wrong ones)...your vision cards rock!...and ohmygod, you saw Jenn! :) Re healing our homes...I'm in the midst of a major purging and reorganizing process at home (the first since we moved in a little over 3 years ago). It's felt so good to move the energy around. It's also been very telling to see how little space I was claiming as my own. I started this process to make space for something...the past few days I've come to realize that it's not the something that's's the process of clearing space. Because often what ends up entering that newfound space we've cleared isn't what we expected at all. Much love.

Looks like a great week! I remember a few of those days :) I loved the pic of the cart at VV - that wasn't ours was it? hehe.
