Long Time No See
Hey pals. Happy Monday! Hope that you all had a lovely weekend and that you’re stoked for the week ahead. Summer is almost here, and I know how excited my fellow Canadians are to enjoy it to the fullest!! One of the pics above is of the tree in my neighbours backyard (loved watching the seasonal transition!). I think I get more enjoyment out of watching that tree than they do for having it (think how crazy it would be to rake up after all those leaves in the fall?)!!! Also, a selfie of Craig & I with the town mascot Chimo! Sharing some of the things I’ve been up to lately! Hope everyone has a great week!
What I’ve Been Up To….
Doing: Going for walks, we’ve been walking everywhere! Watching the birds out my window: there is a crow versus grackle rivalry happening in our backyard, the grackles attack the crow and vice versa. It’s pretty awesome to watch the birds going about their daily lives. And I’ve been spending moments in heavy contemplation, doing lots of reflecting, and dreaming about the future.
Watching: In the past two months, I’ve been watching the little changes from spring into summer, we see it happen every year but I never took the time to really appreciate it. When I’m not looking out my window, I’ve been following a few shows: Nurse Jackie, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, The Bachelorette (getting sick of it fast), MTV: The Challenge, Free Agents (definitely my fave reality show EVER) AND last but not least, Orange Is The New Black (finished it in a week and can’t wait for more!!!!). (OK that was more than a “few” shows, oopsy.)
Listening To: HAIM and Banks and 2 Chainz (still keeping it gangsta don’t worry)
Thinking About: The future, all the while trying to live in and enjoy the moment (what can I say, I multi-task). LIFE. Always thinking about life!!! And I’m thinking about all the senseless crimes that have been making headlines (and have been forever making headlines). Sending peace and love to all the families of fallen victims.
Looking Forward To: Swimming, more campfires, getting our business up and running (it’s taken a long time but finally getting close). Whatever else the future brings!! :)
Missing: Family and friends, and the convenience of living in a big city! Small town living is so different, and it’s definitely not for everyone. I just really miss being able to find anything and everything you’re looking for at any given time! (groceries (specifically health food items), things to do, stores and restaurants that are open late, etc)
Thanks for reading! XO
