Let there be sun

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I'm just going to say it.  So far summer has sucked.  It rains all the time.  It's cold.  Our furnace still runs.  It's June. C'mon.

That being said, it looks like some nice weather may be approaching.  I want to go camping.  We have gone out for a few hikes over the last week.  Oliver is becoming a real outdoors man.  He balances across logs, has no fear of the mud, he does all of these things he used to be afraid to do.  It is wonderful.  He loves it.

I have been feeling stressed lately, lots going on, mostly good stuff, but still stressful.  Being outside, wandering through the woods is the best medicine.  I really hope we can go camping soon.  I want bacon and eggs cooked over a Coleman Stove, and S'mores and hot dogs cooked on a stick over the fire.  I want to stay up late and talk and stare at the stars, then crawl sleepily in to the tent and snuggle with my husband with the sleeping bags zipped together and the dog at our feet, and wake up bright and early with the messiest hair and drink too-strong camping coffee with powdered creamer... Camping is just the best.

I have a few fun things coming up.  Next week I am making a trip to Wonderland, an amusement park outside of Toronto, with my cousins and my best-bud, Abbey.  I am really looking forward to it.  I love the rides, and the funnel cake.

I also have a birthday coming up soon, and thus far I have no plans (still).  I am contemplating treating myself to a mani-pedi and hair cut & colour... maybe having a few people over for a BBQ.  I dunno. I'm not a party person (I also only have like 3 friends here lol).  I gotta do something... It's stressing me out.

I have also been working on some pieces for Finery Boutique, and trudging through my backlog. I am at least staying within my 8 week production time, but my goal is to get it down to 4-6.  I keep reminding myself of the "fast, good, cheap" adage, and that you can only achieve two of those three things...

On that note, it's time for me to get to work.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week!



  1. I love camping! Hope you manage a a night or a few away.

  2. Those pictured pieces are beautiful! It's raining and cold where I am...in the opposite hemisphere! Hope the rain holds out enough for camping, I love how your experience revolved around the food! Cooking is much more authetic when fire is involved =P

  3. It's been gloomy here (June Gloom they call it) I'd love to go camping and eat s'mores! But I can build a sheet tent, and make some that way xD

  4. Your coordinates are so pretty! I am really looking forward to doing some camping too!
