all week

Last week, I made a plan to update this blog twice–guess that didn’t work! Lately I have been feeling like I have nothing to say, but that’s kind of defeatist.

Today, Greg and I are off on an odyssey of bureaucracy. We’ve got to get him fingerprinted (twice), get some forms notarized and take them downtown to a tax office, and get some notarized papers showing we share a bank account. Some of it is for his Canadian immigration process (which feels like it will never be over) and some is so we can get a tax return, fingers crossed!

Last week was kind of awesome. My friend Lindsay was visiting and I spent the day with her on Thursday. It was the best. I felt like I could be myself around her and it was so relieving.  I don’t always feel like I can be myself around people lately and it is kind of a stupid teenage thing that I am trying to figure out how to lose.  But, my visit with Linds was great because it was the perfect California eternal-summer day.  We ate burritos overlooking the ocean, laid on the sand and got sunburned, drove around with the windows open drinking  ice tea, cooked a vegan supper and ate (r) ice cream.  It was the perfect girly catch-up day with a friend.

Another thing keeping me off the internet last week was Fable II. We have wanted to buy it since we got an Xbox 360 (like 6 months ago) and we finally got it last weekend. It’s SO GOOD. It’s pretty similar to WoW, but you don’t need a guild of people to complete quests with you. I love it. I think it’s an amazing game so far, I just hope it’s long. I’d hate to get this into it and find out that it was a super-short game!!

I have been drawing a lot in the past week. I used to draw so much and now I hardly do it at all! I tried to draw a lot this week and I’m really happy with the results.

These are for a drawing meme.

Oh, and before I’m off: we made sushi at home last night.  It was pretty fun and it was nice to make sushi again.  I used to work as a sushi chef for a bit while I was in Calgary, and since I stopped working there I have only done it a couple times.  This was my first attempt.

  1. all of those pictures make me smile. you and linds are so pretty.
    how did you make inari!? that seems really hard and i have never seen the puffed tofu anywhere.

    also, love your drawings ❤ keep it up!

    1. Oh, thank you for your kind words! I actually saw the inari in a little tin…I have no idea how to make it. I got it at a Japanese market–maybe you will be able to find it in Victoria? It’s a little orange half-can.
