A Bumpy Ride

It was spring for a few days but went right back to winter.  I never changed how I dressed.  Mukluks and winter coat. I didn't trust the weather. Day 86 of 365 Feet Project

Waiting in Class

One of my comments from the teacher about my latest portrait assignment was, "damn fine!". I'm happy with that.

Not A Minute To Myself

I barely have time to post this on the proper day. These past two weeks I haven't been able to follow through on this project. 

I also haven't had the chance to take many feet photos. So most of my pictures are from my archive.

Day 81 of 365 Feet Project

Saturday at the Dance School

I had a really good class today. The kids remembered the Christmas dance and everything I've taught them for spring.

The first day of spring and my feet are so cold.

Thursday March 19

My little ones now no longer the youngest in the extended family. My sister just had a little boy. I have not met him yet or spoken to my sister. I'm sure she is very tired. 

This is Artis not wanting to stay asleep when I was trying to finish my home work. It was either disturbingly late or devastatingly early. 

I had to rock him with my feet as I typed. 

Neither one of us is impressed with my abilities at being a mom.

Men's Banner at the Meadows

I had a fantastic day talking about the Men's Banner Project at Meadows West School. 

Day 77 of 365 Feet Project

Tuesday March 17

Late by a few hours. That's what my whole week has been like. I can move my neck a little bit. Today was St. Patrick's Day and I had the boys dressed in green but other than that we didn't do much. 

Two weeks ago I made cookies for a sculpture assignment. The word I created was Pompous. 

I've been wanting to make sugar cookies for over a week, lots and lots of cookies so they last a few days. But I haven't been able to find the time and my neck was too sore. 

I have a presentation later today at a high school on human rights. How to be the change in your community. So once that's done and I create a magazine for my final. I'll reward myself with homemade treats.

Monday March 16

I woke up Monday morning and I couldn't move my neck or left arm. My body was stiff and in pain. 
For the last month and half my mom has been incredibly helpful. Monday to Thursday she takes one of the twins for part of the day and on Fridays when I'm at school she takes both. This way I'm able to get work done, have a nap and Yuri works/has conference calls during this time.  
Not being able to move much I took both babies over to my moms and spent the day with her and my little sister. It would have been a lovely visit if I wasn't in pain the entire time.
This weird injury has upset my whole week.

Saturday after my dance class. One of my flower pens marked up my slipper.

Saturday March 14

I missed celebrating Pi day with pie. I'm very disappointed in myself. I didn't have any feet pictures that accurately portrayed my dismay. 

This is from the summer of 2013.

Friday March 13

I only missed my deadline for this day by two hours. It never occurred to me that today was Friday the 13. Nothing bad happened and I was on time for class.
I lighten the picture a little.  A little grainy but okay. Taken on my camera phone. The little feet belong to Artis-Yul.
We also took some selfies. Artis suggested we do looking off into the distance poses. His picture was more subtle than mine. 
Day 72 of 365 Feet Project

Thursday March 12

Another Saturday at the dance school. My little nephews who are also in my class were playing around under the tables. 

I'm in my only pair of white tights. My class is so little that I have to preform with them on stage. 
For Christmas we were snowflakes. 

Day 71 of 365 Feet Project

Wednesday March 11

I don't remember where this was taken. Somewhere with tiles. I know its in Winnipeg and on my camera phone. Everything else is a mystery.

I Like My Fuzzy Socks

Oberon won't let me feet him. He is way too squirmy and I'm running out of time to post for today. Six minutes to midnight. Another Monday gone.

International Women's Day

I'll be updating after midnight but I wanted to post a picture on the correct day.

The Empathy Of Cats

Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is empathy, for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound purpose larger than the self kind of understanding.
— Bill Bullard
(via lunagemme)
I found this quote on tumblr today and it made me think of  Oreo. Which I know is silly, but I always thought my cat was on my side of any situation. I'd come home, tell her about my day and she'd look at me  as if to say "that's why I don't like going out"
I find it interesting how we can put parts of our own personality on animals, objects and babies. I do this all the time to the twins.
This is the last picture I took of her and my feet before she died.  The last couple of years of her life we let her take walks outside around the apartment.

Typography Assignment Two

Whenever I begin working on a piece of art I feel the urge to clean. So I end up dividing my time between painting, gluing, creating a mess and dusting. I can’t decide if this is an avoidance tactic or part of my creative process.

1st Position Everyone

Valentine's Day after my ballet class. I teach my nephews who are very little. The biggest challenge for me is getting everyone to listen. 

I really love taking pictures in the carpet room.

This Bothers Me

Google+ keeps re-posting my posts as comments on my blog. I find this really annoying.

Looking Out

Quick shot while I was waiting for my ride. I was so sick for over a week and am only now starting to feel better. Not sure if it is Monday or Tuesday today...

A Producer Said...

This year I was told that I am more a filmmaker than a producer. He added that it was a compliment. He wished he was less a producer and more a filmmaker. This was someone I greatly admire. 

I took it as a compliment and constructive criticism.
