Things I am not doing today

a flying leap

I have done no laundry.

I have cooked nothing.

I have scarcely seen my children.

I have taken no photographs, although it is Sunday, and I try to take photos on Sundays.

I have not been outside.

I have scarcely moved from this desk.

My writing week seems to be starting a day early. I seem to be writing escapist historical fiction. I am next thing to flabbergasted about this turn of events.

But I am not worrying about it. Not today.


Two things. One, if you live in the Waterloo region, look for Green magazine in the KW Record. I’ve got a piece in there about dreaming green. (It is not yet available online.) And two, let me direct you to my conversation with Marita Daschel about The Juliet Stories, photography, and motherhood, among other things.

Bucket List Thinking
The week in suppers


  1. Sarah

    Good luck this week Carrie, looking forward to hearing about it! Jump!!

  2. Heather

    Hey, was that jump inspired by this artist?

    Was just in K-town for the day and saw the magazine at my parents’ place, liked your article a lot (and the photos are great too)

  3. Carrie Snyder

    Yes, it was! But she’s totally brilliant.
