The past week has been eventful despite not much going on; if that makes any sense to you :P? If find myself in mini adventures almost daily and tell me self the biggest lie… ‘I will remember this story; no need to write it down‘.
This town/ city is rather amazing. Vernon is considered a city, I finally found that out but it really does have a town feel because it’s so small and cozy. I usually try to go longboarding everyday that it’s nice out, it keeps me in decent shape and it’s fun too so why not? The other day I kept heading down the hill to see where it would bring me and I have to say I was a little disappointed because the city got more and more industrial… as much as it can anyway. Despite it not being as beautiful as I expected it was still a phenomenal day to go boarding. Apparently if I went past where the sidewalk ended (which I was at) I would have hit the Okanagan Lake… oh well. With all the exploring I’m doing (averaging 8-11 km a day) my wheels are starting to wear out as well as my bearings so if anyone is feeling generous I could use some ABEC11‘s or Orangatang IN HEAT‘s (orange or purple) ^_^.
I started to fall behind on reading my book… that usually happens and then I usually never pick it up again, well guess what I’ve picked it up again and I’m just as excited to read it as before. The Alchemist is definitely a book I would recommend it has amazing words of wisdom and some good reminders on how to be happy in life.
I recently got back in contact with an old friend in-which we had a falling out which was a real shame but I think it needed to happen for both of our lives to expand. It’s so awesome because the beginning of a new-old relationship seems to be forming… ever so slowly which is fine by me, but I really did miss the connection we once had.
The other day I was at the horse farm hanging out with my friend which I was bringing to the airport for the following day at six AM. Before we had some dinner which usually is something super healthy and yummy; but I digress we had to bring in the horse from the pastures in, and the way we did this was with a 4-wheeler (modern-day herding). This was pretty crazy as I wasn’t even driving, I was just kind of along for the ride. First we brought in the beautiful mares (females) followed by the gelding (males) which was a little crazier because the ground was so uneven in their pasture. I was holding on for dear life. while we were bringing in the horses the sun was setting in-between the mountains and what a sight that was stampeding horses, sunset and mountains!
I found it super fascinating how the horses didn’t kick or anything like that at the ATV, and no matter what direction we came at them they knew the right way back to their proper fencing. These horses are brilliant and I love hanging out with them, just the way they peer into your eyes and nuzzle you and make you all dirty even though you are wearing dress clothes. Such powerful beings; I love it.
I ended up driving my friend to the airport which was in Kelowna, I figured I was in the town anyway and it took me 45 mins to drive there why not explore… and get some Ingress gaming in… Portals baby!
I’ve been wanting to start painting I’m not sure if it’s because the Hostel has such artistic flows or what but I did manage to scrape together my first ever painting. Keep in mind I don’t usually do “hand art” I usually do well with photography or Photoshop etc… but here it is, I call it “HOW big ARE YOU?”
I added a few new things to it today, a star or two and a moon for earth. I’d love to know what other people think of my painting, feel free to comment about it, as well what do you think it’s about?
I’m still on a bit of a job hunt, going from the basic job and slowly finding better ones as I go. I had been talking to one of my Hostel mates/ neighbours from next door that works on a trawler for shrimp on the Okanagan and they just had their new guy quit. Shame for him very good possibility for me! A good word is being put in for me and hopefully I find out before my next blog.
To close off this blog I’ll talk about my beautiful day or some part of it anyway. I had just made a sandwich and Açaí tea (the tea is so good and non caffeinated) I walked out side for fresh air when I was hit by liquid sunshine . What I mean by liquid sunshine is that the sky was super blue and the sun was blaring while little drops of rain drizzled down from the vast sky :). If you’re wondering where I came up with the term “Liquid Sunshine” no it wasn’t my genius contemplation, I learned it while in the military from a Sergeant of mine… feel free to use it!
Finally my last story that I can remember and that happened today, my Hostel neighbour called me over with excitement, and around the corner there were three deer munching on our Grape vines! There were two babies and Mama, we let them snack for a bit then “shoo’ed” them off so they didn’t eat them all. They were all pretty thin which was kind of sad 😦 but they did get to eat a bunch and I hope they LOVED IT!
Not sure if I wrote about this in the last blog but since showering is next to impossible I’ve decided I’m dedicating time each day for “Bath time” it seems corny but it’s an awesome type of meditation and personal time… try it out. Anyway bath time ciao!
