Today I went exploring outside for an episode of The Nature of Things with Amanda Suzuki. Hauling my camera around “ain’t no big thang”… but it’s still kind of a obstacle, especially with a crazy dog.

The annoyance factor gets REALLY high when you go to take your first award winning shot and the memory card is sitting back in your computer at home. BOO.

Well, thank goodness for iphones….

I took Painter on a big stroll around the neighbourhood. It was such a beautiful day.

old orchard park

Our stroll through the park turned into a mud slopping, sand kicking, rock hopping good time!

bug puppy water

Ha, He was trying to catch the water splashes with his mouth. cute

After a good Kilometre running along the muddy shoreline. My dog was wet, tired and DIRTY!

As soon as I got home, he was thrown into the bath…

It’s been a good weekend. I have relaxed quite a bit these last 2 days, which is great. I am usually go, go, go. I’ve had a lot on my mind lately and am trying not to get too stressed out….Of course the wedding plans have been a big brain space filler, and my upcoming surgery next week is another weird force that fills up your brain with too much thinking.

Thoughts in my head about my surgery:

-why am I even worried?

-what if they find something really bad?

-why did I get this?

- am I feeling sorry for myself?

-what right do I have even feeling bad for one second when so many others are going through way worse?

-I know I need to eat a plant based diet, but sometime I just don’t want to care about what I eat?

-how will this change my life?

-I want to have kids, but maybe not right this second, but if I don’t do it this second will it be too late?

-is this even a big deal?

And on and on and on…

To the right of my computer I have an oracle card that states I am a powerful healer, but then my appointment card hits me in the face, I try to remind myself that this VERY MOMENT, is all that counts. Yoga is good.

Hmmmm….as Gwen Stefani says…”I’m just a girl in the world….”

In non-emotional news I also went to Costco today. We have a HUGE family of 2 humans plus 1 dog to feed, so we NEED a Costco card, haha…

Anyway…I picked up some nuts..

What? Nuts in the fridge?

kirkland walnuts, almonds

Yep. Something I have learned in the last 6 months is that we should keep our nuts in the fridge. They do go bad just like any other perishable food. So I fill my handy mason jars for my day-to-day use and I keep the fat bag of nuts in the crisper…

Tomorrow I am thinking Brownies with the walnuts and almond milk with the almonds! OW!

I got 2 boxes of the arugula/spinach mix of greens. Making green smoothies all week baby!

I wish I could have got local greens, but these California greens will work.

And some “sulfite flavoured” olives, lol… costco olives
And a lifetime supply of cotton pads.costco cotton pads

We got some other stuff too, I just can’t remember….

Anything exciting happen for you over the weekend? Fill me in!

Oh, and here’s to a kick ass week filled with pure potential!!!

    Love the puppy pics! He is so adorable, it’s so nice that he gets to come with you on shoots.

    Never realized that about nuts, thanks for the tip!

    Hope all goes well in surgery!
