It's hard to believe, but it is supposed to be the MIDDLE of winter. You'd never know it here in the Rockies though.... There is snow, but the temps are mild, mild, mild! And I've been trying to enjoy every second of these strange but amazing conditions that I can!

Last weekend was a delectable mix of chilling-slash-going-hard.We spent a super-fun day wandering the river trails around Canmore.....

The local wildlife!

The beauty views are endless!

Wandering turned into stopping for beverages and snacks downtown....

Alright, if you insist!


We also spent a day skiing our legs off at Sunshine.... It was fantastic! And not busy!

Simply lovely!

This week at work was nothing short of horrendous, so I'm crossing my fingers and toes that this coming weekend will be a repeat of the last - or at least something similar! Yeah!

A weekend of love!

And of laughter! And of music!!

What a stellar Family Day long weekend I had! Four glorious days away from work... doing some minor home improvement projects.... and spending time with my besties.... It was truly nearly as righteous as being in the mountains!

Friday night, about ten of us went downtown to a groovy little speakeasy pub called Fratters, and we laughed our asses off at the two fabulous comedians!

Excellent comedy!

Saturday, I got a bit ambitious and decided to upgrade the light fixtures on the main floor of my townhouse. A selection was finally made, after I spent a good couple of hours driving the salespeople crazy in Red Deer Lighting....

Let there be light!

New tools for the job!

Oh, the irony!
Bought a screwdriver....

....needed a screwdriver to
get it out of the package!

Of course halogen bulbs are uber *BRIGHT*, so the follow-up project was installing dimmer switches on the said fixtures. Between Google and my good friend Lisa, nobody ended up electrocuted and there were no electrical fires. So far. Woot!

Sunday was a most unexpectedly wicked evening of live music - The Trews played at the Memorial Centre, and they put on an incredible show!

It was an eventful set of days off, and I loved every minute of it! Now it's a three-day slog until I get to do it all over again - only this time Canmore is on the agenda for the weekend. Righteous!!
