I have pictures of young dad, medium old dad, and slightly older than that dad… but I think this photo taken in March 1990 is quintessential dad. This is the dad that I grew up with and spent the most time with before I had my daughter and started my own grown up life. We were always close but when I think of him, this is the man that comes to mind the most. I can even see his Export A’s (he quit them cold turkey not too long after this) and stripey sport socks under his beach chair. He always had a book in hand (probably a Robert Ludlum or some such) and loved being in the sun. On this trip, Dave and I took a bus down to Florida to meet up with my parents and then we all flew over to the Bahamas for a week. It was great. 
I miss my dad with all my heart. His voice, his laugh and his Spring Break Posse way of life. Hahahah. So weird to think that he was only a few years older than I am now in this picture. How does that even work? When I’m missing them, I feel like I’m five. 
Anyway, happy birthday daddy-o. I miss you and miss you and miss you. So much.

Current status.

A 5 foot bench makes a pretty good nap spot for someone who is 5 foot four.

Lookit how pretty.

This morning I got a bucket and squeegee and wash brush thing on a stick and washed all of those big ass windows. Hopefully the property management folks will wash the balcony railing ones soon as they are full on winter grimed. I NEED TO WATCH MY NEIGHBOURS YO. I mean, not be a creep whatsoever. Go spring!

I bought some pretty things today. These are those things. Whale votives and wooden coasters. Today was a nice day. I hope you had a nice day too.

Pretty in pink.

I am feeling better today. Sadly, Josh goes home tomorrow. He is a real good boyf and sick nurse. It was nice just doing every day nothings together. We are good at every day nothings. 

I am so tired of spring playing hard to get. It is my favourite season of forever. April and May better give up the goods or there’s gonna be heck to pay. [raises puny fist] [puts it back down again] [cries]

Unfortunately, I am way too sick to get to my last screen printing class tonight. My whole face hurts from a sinus infection and I have a bad chest cold to boot. So, here is an accidental blurry pic of my boots and my ink-splattered apron from a previous class. It’s akin to how I’d feel if I went in anyway.
I’m bummed that I won’t finish my final project but the teacher is going to let me know about renting studio time in the future. I learned a ton and feel like I could easily jump in on new projects at my leisure. C’est la vie, I guess.

Just installed a cork/magnetic board in my office nook. Not sure how I feel about it yet but it is nice to have a place to doodle, write reminders and tack odds n’ ends.

Our designer Timo is probably shaking in his very stylish boots.
