Forty Days and Forty Nights

Tsk. Forty or so days have gone by since my last post... Sorry people! It has been an eventful forty days though, so does that excuse my slackness??

Where to start. Well, how 'bout with the fun stuff! I've been to Canmore a few times, in between celebrating friends' birthdays and retirements. And although I haven't been on skis yet (*GASP*), I have been doing lots of other important, exciting things such as visiting, and hiking, and biking, and snowshoeing.



Thanks Gillian and Brady!

Many changes have taken place in my world this past forty days - some positive, and some challenging. I moved into a new role at work, which is incredibly stimulating but at the same time has required yet another shift up in my brain gears. A great friend and co-worker folded up his Engineering degree and has opted to travel the world. I've become a landlord for the first time in my life. And another first - I now have a garage for the 4-Runner! The garage came with a lovely townhouse of course, which is a whole other story.... LOL....

So yeah, in my books, these last six weeks have been a bit of a blur. But it's all good and for sure there have been very few dull moments!

Found this 'fortune' in the drawer
of my new desk! Awesome!!

Miss you Ben! We wish you all the best!

The latest toy!

My body and my soul have both been taking a beating over the past while, so some serious restorative measures are in order. To start with, I bought myself a gym membership and a fat-tire bike, plus I'm going to start tracking my 'mileage' again, on the trails via two feet and on two wheels. As well, I'm researching traveling to a couple of my long sought after destinations - I have many weeks of vacation entitlement this year, and I am planning on using every last hour of it!

As it stands, I can't 100% say for sure what the rest of 2017 has in store for me, but I'm fairly certain it will be somewhere in the range of absolutely fantastic to unbelievably amazing, if that is what I choose!


Wait for it....  :)
