The Journey Begins Anew!



Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
There are a lot of changes going on. I struggled for a long time to figure out what to do. I wanted a business that encompasses everything I do rather than have multiple businesses. I didn't want to deal with the taxes, nor the administration of a site for each endeavor I undertake.

Thus, The Write Buttons is born.

I'm a writer and a sewer.

I also dabble in music and have plans for that eventually.

Tiny Samurai isn't going away, it's just taking on a new form.

I've purchased my new domain name for 88 cents tonight!

I'm just waiting for it to flip to active.

One thing? I've been scared of the logistics involved in shipping items. Other than the name issue, I had been letting this hold me back.

Well, no more! It's time I just jump in and see where I end up.

On the writing front, I'm working on a short documentary. It's taking up a lot of my time right now, but it will be done soon. It's for Digi60, which takes place next month! It's the story of a BC indigenous woman who overcame alcoholism through roller derby after escaping abuse. I'm so happy to be part of this amazing project!

I also recently rewrote a resume for a client on a short deadline.

Sewing wise, I have a little project I'm finishing up at home involving a couch cover for a new-to-me leather loveseat I got for free. It has a little seam issue that has required tape to repair. As it's the winter months, I'm making a cover for it out of fleece. The pattern happens to be Spongebob. I was never all that into the show when I was younger, but now I find it quite funny. I also got a good deal on the fabric, which is predominately my favourite colour ;)

Once that is done, it's time to get rolling.

With gratitude,
Rae-Rae a.k.a The Tiny Samurai

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

The PWHL

I've gotten my season tickets for the inaugural season of the Professional Women's Hockey League. I had put my deposit down as soon as it was open. Am I a hockey superfan? No. I enjoy hockey. I started watching it quite a lot during my divorce. I also used to practice my slapshot against the foundation of our house when I was an angst-filled teen. I care about women in sport having amazing opportunities like this. Anyway, some people in the comments section on the posts are truly something. The league posted the schedule, which was more of a calendar without time blocks listed. They happened to post that on the day that priority purchasing was opened for the season tickets.  So then there are a bunch of people who didn't put deposits down that were complaining they can't buy tickets yet. Makes total sense 😒 And then there were a bunch of other people complaining that nothing has been announced on the streaming and televisation of the games. Some were even suggesting th
