I’ve been super busy lately with life, so I just thought I’d take a quick break to update ya’ll with what I’ve been up to:
– I’ve baked 2 pies for fun in the past couple weeks. Why? No reason, I just wanted pie! Actually, it was also a slight attempt to master my crust-making skills. The recipe needed a little bit of tweeking, and I think I have it all figured out now.
– Over the Labour Day long weekend it was super hot (for the beginning of September at least), so my mom and I took Isla to the splash park for a little picnic and a play. Isla had SO much fun playing in the water and watching the other kids. I can’t wait until next summer when she’s old enough to run through it on her own without needed to hold our hands.
– I have been working on some freelance writing work like a mad woman lately, and I’m loving it! It’s been a while since I’ve felt the pressure of a deadline, and I miss the stress of it just a tiny little bit! This month I’ve been working on about 10 stories all together. Whew!
– Angela from Craving Cupcakes was recently in BC with her family houseboating, and I (kinda) joking pointed out that Kamloops was only a couple hours away from where they were. Low and behold, she and her (newly wedded) husband were coming into town to take her cousin to the airport, so we made a last-minute coffee date on Saturday! I think I started following Angela’s blog not too long after I started this one up, so it was SO nice to finally meet face-to-face. Hurray for blog-friends becoming IRL friends!
I’m more than certain that I’m leaving stuff out. I promise once I’m done all this freelance business that I’ll get back to blogging more regularly. (Hopefully!)
