a dog blog post

a cute blue eyed husky made my day today

as he and his owner were walking past the wine shop where i was on my break 
(just to be clear, i was not drinking wine...i was getting coffee)

he stopped in front of the window when he saw me frantically waving like a mad woman
(dogs bring out the "mad woman" in me...)

he walked up to the window,
put his front paws on the ledge

and then high fived me through the glass.

hello.  day made.

i think i'm in love.
don't tell shep.

so hey there winter...

...i know you're trying to ruin my life

what with your -23 degrees

and your almost stealing the life out of my nose and whatnot.

well let me tell you, it's not going to work.

even though you made me really, really want to indulge my inner hermit today...i had things to do.

and it turned out to be a great day.

(minus that time you made my eyes tear up and freeze *half* open.  i'm sure that was a pretty sight for all)


today i sold 46 cards

and got two new stores (which i'm so excited to share!)

and made pesto.

You know making pesto is my passion, winter.

you can't ruin a day that involves pesto.  ever.

garden tool green

i don't really know how this started,
but i have a new obsession with the colour green.  not just any green though, 'garden tool green'.  it's way fancier than just 'green'. obviously.

i even made a board on pinterest devoted to it.
that's how far this has gone.

 last week i bought a garden tool green binder for my attempt at organizing Rhubarb invoices.  i'm sure the checkout girl at Staples thought i was crazy for being so excited to find a binder in this rare shade.  i was so excited when i walked out that i ended up walking right into a construction zone.  clearly i need to watch where i'm walking, because this is not the first time i've found myself in a construction zone in front of a 5 foot hole in the road or 10 construction workers sitting on scaffolding above my head...

 still quite excited about it...

new cards + camera envy

over the past few days, my friend Robyn has been visiting from Calgary and she brought me her boyfriend's fancy camera to play with.  Let me tell you, i love it so, and it may or may not be accidentally forgotten here/hidden in a sock drawer when Robyn leaves (oh how i wish!). I have officially decided to start a "new camera fund" and save up for one of these bad boys.  Below are some pictures of a few new cards...
