Diandra and I've got lots on the go. It's spring and that means all the regular stuff to do plus a garden plus more biking which makes for a much more enjoyable but albeit busier life. I've been working on having weekly goals (just a to do list with a broader spectrum) and making sure that I take some personal time to read, knit, and take care of myself everyday so that I can get things done and not get too stressed out by the little things.
Kitchen: I made these double chocolate cookies into bars for our fundraising Garage Sale at Sarabellum's place on the weekend. Holee: yum! Egg free (which was a happy accident since I didn't have any eggs to use), low sugar, high chocolate, and so fucking good.
Community: Bike to Work Week stuff is wrapping up, I've got some writing to do today for the final reporting. I'm still waiting for a couple of our larger teams to submit their results, then I'll be doing a little tinkering with the statistics to finish it all up for another year. Phew.
I've been having some great conversations with other bikers who are interested in some direct action around town to make cycling safer for bicycle commuters around the City. So we'll see where that goes.
Roller Derby work is wrapping up for the year since we've got a couple more travel games to finish up our season: one in Ft St. John in a couple weeks, then Quesnel in July. We are shifting into more recruitment and community events. You can find us at the Cruisin' Classic Father's Day Show 'n' Shine. So I'm organizing that for us for this weekend. Which means patrolling Fb discussion thread where I listed what we need to do and email organizers to make sure that we can have a legit table this year. I've got Asia coming to snap some pin up derby photos for us too. Yay!
As for sewing, I made a 'Coffee Date Dress' from Burda last week with some thrifted material and took it out for it's first dinner on Sunday night. It looks great. A fantastic fit, I think I'll make another, it was really easy to make up. The facing makes it look really professionally done. There is a designer fashion show coming up in October here in P.G. so I've been trying to figure out an outfit to put together for that. I'm looking forward to hearing from the organizers to find out about their vision, colours, and story for the show. They will also have a sale area so if I can make some extra items for the show I can sell them there. It would be great to make a whole bunch of simple yet classic dresses for the ladies of P.G.. I plan on digging through my stash for more future dress candidate material this week. Hey, why wait? i'll do it today.
