Thursday

Got a family doctor yesterday, or whatever they call it when you're legally single and out in the world.
Went in for a pap test after biking up the world's steepest sweaty hill and she prodded me, then gave me a tetanus shot and asked me to be hers!

Mikes taking a party boat to Texada this weekend for a music festival that sounds like a front for a cult. I'm supposed to be busing out to North Delta for Sal's birthday, be at least interesting since I don't know many of her friends. Fingers crossed that I'm only working five days this week but with my luck...

So I'm doing some work for the Canadian Fishing Company, which mostly involves scanning their abundance of photographs and organizing them in files. This work can be tedious but yesterday I got to go through some pics of a boat called Prodigy that burned and sank "total loss by fire." Everyone there seems to have nothing but contempt for the DFO so I'm sitting on the news that my beloved works for them/ is one of them. I'm doing this scanning for them even though I'm not their employee because eventually I will be doing some research for my real employer (Gulf of Georgia Cannery) with Canfisco's info. So far no news on that front so I'll just keep plugging away

Home you girls are well, having adventures and belly laughs or something miss youuu

I'm lacking the noodles of being embarrassed.

So the day prior to yesterday, I sat on the computer- inspired to create something for myself. I decided to create a map, a rough solid walking route. I tried to make it as simple as possible, so I basically did a big loop, taking the afternoon and ending to be 25km. It was nice, except for some funny fact.

While walking up Cook St, some lady thankfully told me that there was a rip on the butt of the jeans.

My new favourite pair of jeans are now ruined, and it made me think of an incident that happened almost 6 years ago in Yellowknife, where I was walking to work and some lady pulled over to tell me the back of my skirt was pulled up into my tights.

I'm the worst at this guys, and to boot- it didn't phase me. I'm trying to convince myself that people don't really care who they see on the street and the individual relevance I might have on the general public in reality in close to zero.

I'll keep in touch, and tell ya guys if in 6 years another similar incident happens.

dedicated to my sister's 22nd+springrolls



Woke up early today. I had this anxious feel- my recently reunited cat is on the rough rocks (probably will have to go back to the vet this week) and I was convinced I should start prepping for this family birthday lunch I was planning for Katelynn. So at 7 am, in my pjs and sipping a huge glass of morning water- I started rolling springrolls and dipping strawberries in chocolate.

It was technically vietnamese theme- but the desserts were not.

I'm pretty sure that springrolls are in my top 50 favourite foods. At least for the last couple years. The year before last- when i started learning html/css to make a mock website for kicks, I dedicated an entire page to it. I thought I was hilarious.

HBD KATE

feeling squishy and relaxed in the sun

Hey,

I'm in victoria right now just enjoying this heat right now. I have this extravagant plan tonight to make a salad that has cooked zucchini and pickled mushrooms in it- wish us invisible luck.

I wore the earrings you bought me for my birthday, this one earrings got stuck and i had to use pliers to get it out the next day- super dramatic.

Miss you guys and maybe see you at brett's cabin adventure?

Life Round Here

Cat's been extra cuddly lately. And today she was flipping around the grass in the garden like she was high. Found some catnip in the garden so that might be the source.

Planted so far: carrots, radishes, borage, nasturtium, sun flowers and a wild flower mix, lavender and mint. Trying to keep the bees happy. Plus I like the idea of edible flowers. Got some marigold seeds but I think it might be too late to start on those. Plan for next week is to get some mustard greens and lettuce and arugula in. Kale is already going from last year I think. I think I want to get some strawb starters too. Found a strawberry flower under the rosemary plant.
Anyway my green thumb is pulsing happily. I am definitely gardening instead of studying and applying for jobs, which may bite me in the ass. I have a list of 18 jobs that I need to get applications in for and so far have applied to three.
My roommate is moving away for the summer so we're looking for a sublet. If you know someone who doesn't mind not having a dryer and loves being covered in cat hair (and having fresh garden veg!) give me a shout. For some reason it's only been couples applying, which will be cheap as for moi but maybe cramped? A couple from Ireland came by today, pretty cute, both into books and writing which is nice. Maybe we'll be best friends by the end of the summer.
Finished a sock yesterday, started the pair today so maybe this will be a first. Stay tuned.

i'm talking good problems

I came back saturday morning, after moving c-man into his apt. Third floor, and an alright view of the surroundings- I think I'm just a sucker for tall buildings. Maybe next time I'll try your recommendations- though recently i made it to finally trying discovery coffee to try their donuts and i wasn't too impressed (salted caramel had rosemary?.. I remember ages ago that you said that they had really earl grey ones.

Today we had our first marimba gig of the year- we used this cajon that carm built with her very own hands, and now I'm just slowly unravelling chocolate easter eggs (the small ones in foil) and listening to hypem.

Live it up girls.

See my baby loves to dance

You still in Victoria Sarah?
If so or next time you go:
-Government House gardens. From here you can walk through the neighbourhood and go to Moss Rock Hill or the Ross Bay Cemetery and the beach if you feel like being outside and around flowers
-Shatterbox coffee. Get a sweet there too (A+)

Feeling like I've undergone some huge life change after that hike. Also only craving huge carb-filled meals. I can't sleep beyond 7 am. I keep touching the parts of my collarbone that have the skin rubbed off by accident

Anyway needless to say the Juan de Fuca trail was pretty challenging as a 3 day ordeal but if someone asked me to do it again tomorrow, I would.

Have recently made friends with a group of frat boys that Sally and I do trivia with. Their not frat boys anymore and now I guess the only indication of a douchy past is their very nice watches. One of them's mother is the deputy director of the Coquitlam Library so that pretty ok.

hanging out, unsure of what i am exactly doing today.

Hey guys, hope your exciting hiking trip goes as planned.

Bad news, my favourite cat- Snickerdoodles is lost in the wilderness. I'm on a computer right now, creating an abstract but eye catching poster to put up around the neighbourhood. Hopefully she's just kicking it, being a little shit head, and making my little heart worry for nothing.

I'm unsure of what my daily steps are going to be, I might just take a really long walk into town or opposite- I'm actually in Victoria- staying cute and forever unsure. Any tips of where to go or what to do, and hopefully it happens in the next hours- text me up girls!

Few days ago, I finally taught myself how to crochet- I've been making buckets of dishtowels ( if you happen to see me before this trends stops, you might be able to get one ;). I think the fact that I started to crochet really created the situation of me chatting with a lady with no name, at the ferry terminal a few days ago- we talked for almost 45 minutes about knitting, crochet and world events- all because i chose to teach myself a relatively small skill. Here's to you lady-who-was-picking-up-her-two-grandchildren-but-the-ferry-was-45-minutes-late.

Take care, and be safe!
