We love our neighbors.
Since our move to the neighborhood, we have steadily morphed from friendly neighbors to good friends.
We have out together all the time. Try new restaurants. Exchange good with each other all the time. Jump into each other’s hot tub or swimming pool. Go on vacations.
The last vacation was to Joanne’s home town Halifax.
Sure we chose the wrong month to go. It was COLD!!
But when you are with friends, everything is amazing.
So I have shun the social websites.
The unfortunate consequences of that has been that I have cut off my family and friends.
So, I will post randomly here and hope that my fabulous savvy family members will share with everyone one.
Comments are open and your feedback is always appreciated.
Here are some pictures of a recent wedding we attended.
A rare sight. Rhea in a dress!!
The love of my life.
The family visited Paris in last week of July. The trip was outstanding to say the least. Perfect weather. Crowded but not too much(I don’t think terrorism has impacted the tourism much. Especially people from China). Friendly people (for the most part. We did experience some famous French pouting).
Here are some pictures.
So during my long run this Sunday I was about to cross a family with a little child planning on the path.
The father yells out “Hayley, get aside and let this jogger through”
WTF!! I wanted to yell back “I am not a jogger. I am a runner”.
Does anyone else have this problem?
Ok. Lets try this again.
Life has been relatively steady. Summer is finally here and once it gets here you suddenly realise that you are not a “heat” person anymore. If the temperature ticks to 25.00001 C, my sweat pores open up like a runaway faucet and I yearn for some cold air.
Went golfing with the neighbour boys on Tuesday and each time I play golf I realise I really love it. And then forget about it for a few months. Am sure it will be no different this time.
Running has been steady. Am no Robin, but am putting in about 35 to 40 KM a week. Am pushing to double it by September. Planning a couple of marathons later in the year. Ran Around The Bay in April which was strangely my worst and best run. Worst because I have never in my life felt so cold. Was severely under-dressed for the run. Best because I finally beat the 3:00 hour mark. Finished the run in 2:59:14 hours. Really proud of it.
Work has been good. Work mostly from home although I have a preference to work from office. I find I am more productive at office. No distractions and working from home is a drain on the will power.
Daughter has been growing a breakneck speed. She is going to be 13 this year. And what does this teen want? A dog. Oh my god!! She is relentless. I have given in and my wife is almost there. Looks like we will be getting a doggy in the house.
Well, there is music.
The fairly tale story is of course Maggie Rogers. I think the whole world has seen this clip of Pharrell’s reaction to her song.
I find the video so adorable because for the first half of the song she kept glancing at Pharrell to gauge his reaction but she could not read his expressions until finally he gave her the gracious nod. Then she just beams! And the song is fantastic. Hope to hear some good things from this young woman.
More music reviews coming up.
Well, hope to see you all soon on this page. Will try to get it active again.
Not the best effort this week. I’d give myself B-.
