day 1900 – silly saturday

spent much time thinking and assessing how the things that’s become a norm in my life has shaped me. also spent some time reminiscing the summer time and times when i could go hike with the girls. it is not too cold to be out for hikes, beaches and barbecues, not to mention it gets dark by six. i didn’t do all that i wanted to this summer and now i’ll have to wait until the next summer rolls around. in the meantime, it’s time to start thinking about winter activities and how i could stay warm

day 1697 – shoe gallery

as part of spring cleaning, i machined ashed some of my shoes thinking it could be fried since it’s nice out. who knew there would be sporadic callings of hail nearing the end of march. enough of the cold wintery weather, i’m ready for some nicer and warmer temperatures. i would like to get out more this spring and summer, especially more tennis and hiking than i managed last year

day 1511 – prince rupert 


the view that my mom is currently seeing in prince rupert is something to be envious when vancouver is raining all day. my favourite season is on it’s way out and it’s sad to know that the rainy season of raincouver is upon us again. i know it’s greedy to want a longer summer; i just haven’t taken full advantage of the warm sunny days and done enough outdoor activities

day 812 – fall trees

image

so i have finally gave in and acknowledge that fall season has arrived in the city. can’t deny it when trees are filled with orangey reds and my lawn is no longer green because it is so cluttered with the fallen leaves. i know it would get gross once the leaves get soaked from the raincouver showers. the weather has definitely changed when it’s cold out in the sun and night falls earlier and earlier everyday. if it’s not obvious enough fall is far from my favourite season

day 797 – trying to train

image

attempting to train tonight even though my body just isn’t feeling it but got to try anyways. the long battle of my cold continues well into the second week, it just doesn’t want to leave me alone and let me live regularly. i hate feeling like this, but i also hate missing trainings, practices and games even more. weather isn’t helping at all with the change of temperature and earlier night falls.

day 764 – in between rain

image

sneaking in a stroll in between the rain and sitting upon the rocks on the lookout at the thick clouds that hover over the mountain. weird couple months of extremities for vancity, first suffering from a drought and depleting reservoir, then floods, fallen trees and power outages from rainstorms and even snow on the mountain. is this the year the vancouver is due for a decent ski season??

day 464 – out and about

image

when it’s been pouring with temperature drops drastically, every sign signals autumn has arrived. i hate to see summer leave vancouver because the weather is about to get miserable around here. it’s cold outside but as long as it’s not raining i can be outside wandering around. never realized there were railway tracks from downtown looking towards gastown, interesting gems i find through my walking adventures
