Sunday Snaps for the end of summer!

Tomorrow is officially the last day of summer! I’m very excited for all the changes autumn will bring! It certainly looks like autumn here already. Just in the past day the trees have all started going from green to orange and leaves are falling! Yay for crunchy leaf piles!! I feel like autumn is really ENERGIZING me and I managed to accomplish a lot this week.

I’ve been trying to get outside as much as I can and saying hi to the friendly neighbourhood animal pals. These guys were having a blast with the leaves:

Sugar is definitely entertained watching the leaves fall from the window as well:

I’ve also been in a cleaning mood, and reorganized the closet today. Time to pull out the toasty warm cardigans again!

Did a ton of creating as well ~ I’m so glad to be back at it! Spent a lot of time knitting and getting caught up on the 2020 Mood Blanket:

Sugar and binged a bunch of Studio Ghibli Films! Didn’t realize that they are on Netflix now so it was a huge treat.

Which inspired me to make a Totoro feltie! Here he is in progress (while watching Arrietty sew in The Secret World of Arrietty):

Bought a Hello Kitty Perler Bead kit so also been tinkering with that a bit too ( you can get your own here!):

My parents were in town this week as well, so I had the privilege of babysitting my sweet pup Heidi, who lives with my parents at their cottage. I’ve missed the heck out of her this year so it was nice catching up!

The rainbow blanket has been great for some of the chilly nights we’ve been having lately ~ and I love it! Bye summer, see ya next year!

Day 2 of the 30 day blog challenge!

Day 2 – 20 Facts About You!


  1. My entire house is painted PINK and is covered in rainbows and unicorns. It’s like a visual representation of inside my brain!
  2. Actually almost everything I own is pink… I got stopped today by an older lady and was told I was the pinkest person she’d ever seen.
  3. But I was much more of a tomboy as a kid and REFUSED to even look at a dress until a couple of years ago
  4. I don’t own a single pair of pants now (dresses are spinny and fun!)
  5. But I’m hardly squeamish. If there’s a lost little worm on the sidewalk, I’ll give him a helping hand.
  6. You could say I have my head in the clouds… and I do actually have a glider pilots license (I haven’t actually flown in nearly 10 years though) and even taught classes in aviation for a few years!
  7. I never did get my drivers license though!
  8. So I pretty much walk EVERYWHERE (though of course I bus to work)
  9. I also ran my first half marathon this year. I love running and being alone in my own head without any distractions! Also running gear is very fluorescent so that is a definite bonus!
  10. I collect a LOT of cute stuff (you could say I collect collections!)
  11. I love documentaries and cooking competition shows
  12. I have degrees in history and legal administration, and have taken a few courses in web design. I really enjoy school and if I had more time and money I’d take classes forever!
  13. This horrifies people… but I am a very proud morning person. The only reason I don’t wake up before 5 is otherwise I wouldn’t be able to stay up until past dinner time hahaha
  14. I have way too many hobbies so I am really never bored.
  15. I have awful social anxiety. Part of my reason for this blog is to push through some of my biggest fears!
  16. But I also LOVE dogs (and all other animals!) My parents have a golden retriever named Heidi who is also my best pal
  17. My idea of a perfect day is spent baking, knitting, and cuddling my cat
  18. I absolutely LOVE all breakfast food. I will frequently have a bagel or waffles for dinner.
  19. I also love eating everything SPICY
  20. I don’t really like warm beverages but I think coffee smells AMAZING.
My Hello Kitty kitchen! I have somehow acquired a few hundred Hello Kitty bits and bobs

I love chasing after rainbows through the forest near my house!
