Summer Lovin’!

Happy Summer everyone! I’m trying to make more of an effort to update my little personal blog on a frequent basis. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to this happy fun summertime so far!

I am still working from home which is very very busy, so I make an effort to get outside to get away from it ad feel some fresh air and sunshine!

Sugar also loves watching birds and buggies outside the window, so I thought she might like to SEE the outside up close a bit more… So I got her one of those cat backpacks that are all over the place. She loves sitting inside the backpack, and actually jumped in herself without a treat bribe!

She’s a strictly inside cat, so has only ever been outside on the way to the vet. It’s a whole new world out there!!

Maybe the world was a bit TOO big the first time out! Sugar was a little bit overwhelmed and screamed so we just hung out on the balcony. Baby steps I guess before we go for a longer walk.

The weather here in Winnipeg has been amazing. Beautiful hot days, and lots of BIG thunderstorms and beautiful skies like this one! I love chasing after clouds and rainbows!

I’m still running A LOT. Usually a bit before my work day starts, and then a couple of hours on the weekend. It really helps me to fully unwind.

I’ve even met some new friends on my runs! This little guy lives a street over and I’ve been seeing him every morning and we’ve become besties.

I called him Licorice von Boots (his tag doesn’t have his name!) and he loves belly rubs and laying down in flower beds (I mean, SAME!)

Here are some other summery sights! I love my neighbourhood, because it’s basically in the middle of the forest so there are many animal neighbours around.

In other fun news, I’ve decided to purchase a bike so I can get outside and explore even more. So more adventures and excitement to come! xoxo

What’s been blooming with me in May!

Hard to believe a whole month has passed in just a BLINK! Here’s one of my monthly catchup posts to see what I was up to, and some of my favourites for the month!

I’ve been spending a lot of time catching up on my 2020 mood blanket! As a recap, it WAS to be knit a square a day to match my mood for last year. Life got a bit loopy naturally, and I dropped the project for a bit. It’s over 3/4 done now, and I should be able to ACTUALLY finish it in a few weeks!!

I have SO many other projects I really want to get to (need to get back on track with the craft everyday thing!), but I’m focused on getting my rainbow on and done first.

Celebrated Mother’s day virtually again! My parents live out of province anyways, but we’re under really tight lockdown restrictions in Manitoba at the moment so no in person hugs. YET!

Came across this picture of me and mom many, many years ago. 🙂 Her hair is a perm here which is funny because it’s my exact real hair. Who would’ve known?!

Made delicious cinnamon rolls for World Baking Day on May 16th! I used the Easy Cinnamon Rolls recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, but swapped out the dairy and eggs for vegan equivalents and dumped in a pile of sprinkles. They were absolutely FABULOUS!!

The weather is really heating up outside and the cherry blossom and deer friends have come to play! Trying to sneak out every chance I get and capture moments like THESE:

Sugar the kitty had a big scare in the middle of the month and nearly ate string from box packaging. I was able to pull it out of her mouth (in consultation with a vet) and she’s 100% okay and happy as can be. But they were some of the most terrifying days of my life. Will be doing a post to share the scary “tail”!

Hug and love your sweet pets constantly! <3

And lastly, the biggest moment of the month – well year! – I got VACCINATED! I am looking forward to getting my second shot in the next few weeks, and then plenty of hugs and happiness to come!

If you haven’t yet, please get your shot to help others. It takes only a couple of minutes and then we’ll soon be back to doing what we love with the people we love.

By the way, these super kawaii masks are from Blippo Kawaii Shop! :3

Now for some favourite things this month:

What I’ve been watching: I’ve been on a Star Trek kick! Every couple of years I started from THE BEGINNING with The Original Series (the one with good ol’ Captain Kirk for all of the non-Trekkies) and attempting to do a full walkthrough of the series while I’m still working from home. I am, in fact, a gigantic geek. 🙂

Eating: Two Rivers Flavoured Coffee Pods for Keurig from Amazon & homemade Cinnamon Buns

Video Games: New Pokemon Snap for Switch! The original Pokemon Snap for N64 was one of my favourites as a kid, and this is a modernized take. The graphic are absolutely stunning, and has many hours of gameplay. It’s a good game to pick up for just a couple of minutes a day to focus and relax. If you enjoy Pokemon games and collecting, it’s incredibly fun.

That’s all for now! I’m off to enjoy the great outdoors. xox
