How ya doing???
Day 2 of my Raw Food “Celebration!” I will get onto how I am feeling about that in a minute-But first off, my big excitement was recording in a studio today that was not my own! (nothing against my beautiful little magical sound booth) but check this place out, Woot Woot.
I got a gig as a character named “Charlotte” for some animation stuff Telus is doing. There are 5 characters and I am the leader of the pack!
While I was recording, the producer would play back the other voice talents lines, so I could get a feel for the energy and how to throw my lines out. It would be even cooler if the voice talents were actually there int he room with me, but I am not that big-time….yet;)
The owner Paul, was kind enough to give me a tour of the place. Michael Buble recorded his first breakout album here.
They record a lot of tv and film scores here, as well as musicians. I could really get used to recording here. They say if it all goes well, this spot will be recurring and I will visit it a lot more. I am crossing my fingers! I felt confident in there today. All the years of practice, I actually feel like a pro when I’m recording, like I belong!!!
After I was done, I went downtown to see a friend I haven’t seen in a looooong time. Her name is Chelsea, she is an occupational therapist and former PRO beach volleyball player. She is spending the summer in Vancouver and it was glorious to catch up with her.
Check this post out to see her and I in some funny Team Sports Pictures from back in the day.
One thing I noticed as I was tooling around downtown was the barge for the fireworks at English Bay. Last summer we had a spectacular view of the fireworks from our downtown apartment.
Everytime the fireworks were on, we had friends over to enjoy them with us!
This is how craaaazy it was down at the beach. (view from our old apartment!)
I admit when I saw the barge out in the water, I missed our old apartment, but it’s ok, I am soooooooooo happy with where we are right now.
Onto Day 2 of my Raw Food Celebration. Going good, going good. The only time I was really needing girth was when I came home from downtown, I needed an IV of Raw foods in me, pronto!
Some of the raw Food I consumed today- 2 bananas for breakfast, brought an apple and a bag of carrots on the road with me, black iced coffee when I met Chelsea, watermelon and cherries when I came home and a big salad for dinner with a whole avocado, sunflower seeds, cucumber, red pepper, tomato, romaine lettuce, and lemon juice and dill as a dressing (I did NOT like the dressing!!!)
I’m excited for the Farmers Market this weekend. Mike and I are going to buy a BOX of peas, among other lush, fresh ripe fruits and veggies! Whewf, I had moments today when I thought, wow this is only day 2- but for the most part it has been easy…One day at a time….
And tomorrow is looking like another nuts-o day, with a trip to the dentist thrown into the mix as well… Going to clean up a bit around here and get ready for tomorrow.
I hope everything is going great with you. Thanks for the comments yesterday. I really appreciate the support:) Talk to you soooooooooooooon.
