Goodmorning my friends,
Are you having nice weather where you are? After a couple weeks of the most annoying on-and-off rain and cloud, we are finally getting some steady heat and sun. Knock on all the wood. It really helps the soul.
As always, I’m linking up with wonderful Meg to help me see the accomplishments I made last week.
Last week I…
Bought a dress for my brother’s wedding. I fly home next week to be a bridesmaid. If you didn’t know, shopping for clothes is definitely in my top three least favorite activities. I told myself I could just go in and out of the mall, try on one or two and grab whatever I thought would work. All I needed was something navy blue. And hey, I found one. Atleast, it’ll do.
Does this look like a girl who loves time in dressing rooms….??
I visited a friend at his house who’s going through a rough time. We had a good catch up.
I did a lot of research, work, and brainstorming for my second class of the film workshop I am doing. This included watching a lot of shows that, as a Canadian actor, I should really be familiar with. Felt good to do this. This also included a lot of very frustrating time with video editing programs. That part didn’t feel quite as good.
But scones always help…
Had my second class. Which was extremely helpful and also very hard on the ego.
I finally got around to experimenting with something I had had in my cupboard for almost a year now. Geez louise. I think I’ve even got something to share with you guys very soon. It’s been too long.
I went to the most wonderful physical theatre workshop with a director I know who invited me to come for free. I maneuvered my work shifts to be able to go. It was so beautiful and so necessary for the soul.
I spent some time reflecting in Queen’s Park
I worked 5 shifts at the restaurant
I spent some good time with my Fringe script
I responded to comments
I checked off a dentist appointment and saw my chiropractor, who really fixed up some hip discomfort I’ve been having
I made a couple homemade breakfasts at home. Meaning, I spent more than 3 minutes making up a nice plate for myself. It had been a while.
Egg/cheese/peameal breakfast sandwich + green juice + coffee
In that green juice was kale, spinach, chard, ginger, lemon, cayenne. Mmmm.
More cheese please
Blueberry pancakes + sea of peanut butter and yogurt
I saw a show that some friends of mine were in
And then I came home and drowned some sorrows in bed with a bowl of apple crisp, ice cream and a bag of chocolate covered cranberries. I caught myseful up on open tabs, frivolous recipe searching and tv watching. And sleep.How do you soothe the soul? Sun, scones, coffee shops and lying in the grass. #selfcare #summer #goodfood #compassion Click To Tweet
How did you soothe your soul last week?
