WoW, what a sight🍑👀🍑. 🇨🇦🇨🇦Canadian BABE @karinaschnurr 🇨🇦🇨🇦

Went down to Dallas tonight, to sit by the ocean and play some guitar. Heavy inside.

On the drive home, I tuned into a Kyro radio show, and heard this: "At a funeral, no one ever says 'Oh let me tell you how much money he made, or how much he had.' People talk about how the person made them feel, how they lived. That's all that matters at the end of the road." I loved hearing this again. I say again because I already saw this and experienced it first hand, but sometimes need to remember, or in this case, be reminded.
I relate to it, because it's harder and harder to make money these days playing music. I struggle incredibly to make ends meet and earn a real living with my songs, live shows, and all the rest. Don't get me wrong, I want to tour, I want to play everywhere, it's not that I don't want to do it - but I don't have the know how to book these tours, and I don't have the help I really do need to get it all sorted so it can happen. I've asked, everyone I know who does these kinds of things are too busy. So I play where I can, and I do what I can, but I get down about that, and I get down for days about how broke I am most of the time.
Then, on the drive home, with all of these thoughts inside, I remember that it's alright as I listen to the radio broadcast, and if I'm poor as fuck forever, well - fuck it. I have plenty of messages where people share their experiences with my music, and how it impacted them. I've had those conversations in person after shows, and I care a lot about those moments. I want to make a positive difference in people's lives and I want to play music for everyone I can. I'd love to tour, I'd love to get that moving while I'm still here, so that I can spend my time here doing this thing that seems to release me and release others, something that I read about in messages people send me, and something I've experienced while listening to other people's music. .

💗Today we're celebrating our one year anniversary! Wow, time flies. I love thinking back to our magical day on the beach at @beachhousevictoriaevents . We met only a year earlier and had a very short 2 month engagement 💍 but the wedding planning came together effortlessly! (And how cool is the drift wood arch that Jesse's friend made for us?). .

Do you know how to keep your mason bees safe this time of year? Bring them inside! Parasitic wasps and other critters sniff out mason bee nests and lay their eggs in them. The baby wasps eat the pollen that was left for the mason bee and sometimes the bee larva itself. Bring your entire mason bee house inside or in a garage to allow the bees to finish developing into adults in cocoons before winter. Temperatures should be approximately the same as outside (warm). Store the house entrance-side-up so larvae stay in contact with the pollen ball. Try to avoid knocking the house around and dislodging the larvae.
In the fall (September/October around here) you can open up the nest/unravel the cardboard tubes, clean the cocoons, and transfer to cold storage for the winter.
Notice leaf bits in the holes of your mason bee house, or bees still nesting in the tubes? You may have leaf cutter bees nesting, which are active later in the summer than mason bees. Leave the house out for a bit longer then bring inside once the activity stops in fall, or the house is full. Leaf cutter offspring overwinter as larvae in a leaf cocoon, so the cocoons can be removed in the fall (no washing!) and put in cold storage until late spring.

Forgot to share this little ditty done by Mark on Amanda (Ricky's beautiful wife). This couple was so much fun to have in the shop and travelled from Fort McMurray to see us (and their awesome family who live on island). An awesome day all around. .

Motherhood is hard, and it's full on. I'm not going to claim that I've got it figured out but I did find some helpful life hacks and I've posted about them on the blog. 💕
Also, shout out to @kourtneykardash for bringing mom jeans back- and @thequartermooncrew for this awesome sweatshirt 👌🏻

Picking has begun! The harvest season for the Fruit Tree Project has officially started. We've got plums, figs and apples coming up. #fruittree #yyj #eatlocal #gleaner #abundance #urbanorchards #plum

I don't even care if my neighbors think I'm stange 🤓 I'm taking flower photos anyway 🌺

My dad is experimenting with aquaculture at the moment. Anyone have any tips? He's got an entire private lake to play with.
