Project 365 ~ Week 31

There are certain markers of time passing and the cat show at the Ex really says it's the tail end of summer. You can read more about Shannon and my adventures at the Ex here.

On Sunday my accountability group celebrated our 1-year anniversary at the lovely Gilead Cafe. The food was fresh and yummy and though it's quite in this pic, when we arrived it was packed! We stayed a few hours sharing our successes and challenges.

On Monday night I was surprised to find myself with some time and so I cracked out the self-hardening clay that I bought months ago to play with. Spending the evening with clay is a treat.

And speaking of treats, on Wednesday I whiled away a few hours with the brilliant and beautiful Danette. I had a beautiful closeup of her too but just had to share this picture because you can see her infectious laugh from here!

Wednesday we had an early celebration for my honey's birthday. The three of us went to see Clone Wars and then headed out for dinner.

And progress on the house continues! We've booked someone to jackhammer up our concrete driveway and put in some beautiful stone. The top one is the one we're mainly going with and some grey around the trim. I can't wait! Oh, I hope they're finished before Suzie comes to visit! If not, I guess we'll go out a lot!

And Friday, of course, I met up with the fabulous Movie Moxie, who was on the job reporting the early stages of the Toronto International Film Festival. Luckily she took a break so we could go cry over Mama Mia together!

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.

These pics rock! And Jamie, I love what you did with your air hardening clay. I know it can be frustrating to work with in comparison to "normal" clay and you did amazing with it, I love your creations. Looks like a fab week to me! It'll be interesting to see all the changes going on with your house. I can't believe it's been almost two years since the last time I came to visit, insane!

What a lovely full week of fun, connecting and creating!

First of all, I have to say, I love the relationships you have with your sisters. It is so cool to see how connected you all are!

OK - next... you have to tell me about your accountability group. What do you all do?

Love this project - 365. Keep it up!
