I'm still here....

When that text message popped up on my phone a few days ago, I actually had to think hard about when my blog even last crossed my mind, much less when the last time was that I posted.... I guess it has been almost two months, hasn't it!

Things have been pretty 'meh' in my world lately, so I don't have much to write about. It could be partially that the whole C0V1D situation is catching up with me, and maybe a bit of work stress and life stress in general.... I don't know. Normally I am as resilient AF, and I'm hoping to find my misplaced rose-colored glasses soon! At any rate, I'm still kicking, and thank you my friend for checking up on me. ❤

The Previous 648 Hours

And just like that.... my September evaporated in front of my eyes, leaving me in major envy of my hiking friends who were able to enjoy several of the beauty fall days outside in the mountains. I on the other hand, spent 24 days in a row showing up at work, followed by a 3-day road trip to BC - which was a hectic but very welcome change of scenery. 

The chaos of my job.... well, no need to talk about it really - I am blaming it all on 2020! LOL!  And the BC visit.... it had been in the plans for quite sometime to zip out and give Nichole a hand with moving into a new place, so I ducked out of work and we hit the road west from Canmore well before the sun came up on Friday morning.

The Bohemian Cafe

Fintry Falls

Lake Okanagan

Once the furniture was arranged, boxes were unpacked, and other miscellaneous moving-related tasks were complete, we soaked up some Okanagan sunshine during a Saturday afternoon stroll. And then first thing Sunday morning, we were headed back home. It was about a 66-hour whirlwind tour! 

Can't drive through Sicamous without
stopping to look at the lake!

The fall colors were spectacular along the drive, which was a treat to see, especially since I haven't been out to experience them up close and personal yet. Maybe next weekend? Here's hoping work returns to its usual dull roar and autumn hangs in there for a wee bit longer!  


Tuesday, September 8, 2020


Considering what kind of a gong show the rest of the year turned out to be, summer 2020 has definitely been one for the books. I can't remember the last time (if ever??) I was on the go, nine consecutive weekends! That's right.... I looked back in my calendar and was quite shocked at the stats.

Round #9 took place out near Radium over the long weekend, where we camped and rode dirtbikes and had late-night dance parties and drinks around the fire, and in general had a spectacular time! The weather was unusually warm for September - in the high 20's - and through it all, I only had two wipeouts and came home with relatively minor scuffs on both myself and my bike. Success!

This is a snippit from the video.... I did
a teeny tiny wheelie! Woot!
And thank you Cara for your filming skills!

A small ouchie…

The drive home on Monday was a bit white in places, which kind of reminded me of icing on the cake! What a great way to end the season. How lucky am I!


The drive west....

….and the drive back east.

Check out these two beauties!
