So not related at all to stellar content, here is my list of Top 5 things to do until the sunshine returns:
1. Go out shooting with a friend! No, I'm not talking guns, I'm talking cameras! It is quite fun to wander the rain stained streets of Victoria, beneath a cloud coverage that resembles the look of dull cigarette ash ground into a white linen sheet, especially when one looks at it through the photographer's gaze. Everything always gets more interesting when you look at it through the lens. Although when I look over my last photography shoot during an overcast period (see photos), it had a bit of a morbid feel to it. The photos seemed to have an industrial, hard, cold, lifeless, decaying kind of feel to them. Still fun though!
2. Marathon it! No I'm not talking about running a marathon (although that could work too I suppose) I'm talking about picking up a new show to watch and marathoning it. Watching episodes back-to-back until the show it done! Or at least a season of it is done. Or some kind of equivalent milestone...current show I'm watching is Heroes. What can I say? I love my scifi super hero stories. And what better time to watch them but when the sky is full of the grey low-hanging clouds of our discontent.

5. Bake cookies! Kind of an extension of #4 actually, because I'm in the process of trying to create the best run fuel cookie ever. So obviously this involves creativity. My first attempt was tasty but too dry in my opinion. I'm going to try adding applesauce and chia seeds to the next batch in hopes that will make them a little less drier. Pretty excited about these cookies because they are vegan and have no added sugar (with the obvious and acceptable exception of the sugar in the 71% cocoa organic chocolate chips) and they taste great. Looking forward to trying them and having my healthy friends provide me feedback on them.

Until next time, please let there be sun!
