Days 292, 293 & 294

I just had a most relaxing weekend on Salt Spring Island with my sister, Anne Marie (pictured above and also wearing a lot of stuff made by me!) . As a birthday treat she took me to Stowel Lake Organic Farm for a Yoga retreat with the lovely and amazing yoga teacher, Dorothy Price. Everything about the trip was perfect and I have returned feeling revived and rejuvenated after being very exhausted from my recent hard work.

The farm was so beautiful and we got to do yoga in this spectacular setting.

You may notice that my yoga clothes look suspiciously like my regular, everyday clothes. That's because they are! This is not common knowledge but I think you can do yoga in almost anything. We found a local store on the island that was selling "yoga jeans". I'm still trying to wrap my head around that one. Are they like "jeggings" (a term I heard for the first time last night), the cross between jeans and leggings? (I did make the blue pants above really quickly the day before we left specifically for the yoga retreat though.)

The incredible barn where we ate our meals.

Back to Van...

Ahh... Gambier Island

Here I am looking only slightly crazy in my broken sunglasses and bud-light cardboard/mac-tac sunhat.
Berry season is just starting here - yellow salmon berries, red salmon berries and huckleberries.

Days 283, 284

Back in Vancouver after two and a half long and grueling weeks in Calgary! I feel a little bit like this Rhododendron bush:

The show is fantastic and I am really happy with the costumes. I would like to send out a special thank you to Nicole Minogue for coordinating the making the of the costumes and for her tailoring magic! Also many thanks to Kaeleah Spallin and Anne Kirstin, without whom we never would have been able to do it. Good work team!

Here are a few more photos by Noel Begin from Wiseapple that are much better than the ones I took. Hopefully they will inspire you to see the show if you live in the Calgary area. The music is incredible, the dancing is spectacular and the choreography and whole show will blow you away!

Well, back to the old drawing board I guess. I was sick of all the clothes I had with me in Calgary and was looking forward to getting home to change things up a little but it turns out I had almost everything I would want to wear with me. It would be an understatement to say that opening my closet was a let down. I really need to get busy. But I'm going to take a day or two off first. Going to Gambier Island - see you after the weekend.

Day 281, 282 - Opening Night of Wiseapple

It has been a very hectic week trying to get the costumes finished and looking perfect for Wiseapple. Last night's dress rehearsal went well - only a few minor glitches to work out. If you live in Calgary, please check out this show - it is truly remarkable!!
Here is a sneak preview:

And now, boring old me and my boring old outfits...
