It's all About the Small Things

Hola amigos!

I'm on another one of my adventures again. This time the purpose of my trip is business not pleasure but that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun and live it up a bit.

With that in mind I've checked into my temporary home for these three days. It's a beautiful place called The Highland Lodge located at Kicking Horse Resort just outside of Golden (British Columbia). Last time I was up this way I checked out the rooms here and loved them!

The Lodge itself is a rustic log cabin. The owners of the place used to own a fair trade furniture company. As a result the place is full of wonderful carved pieces. You can really tell the place is a labour of love.

Did I mention my room has a jacuzzi tub?

But by far my fabourite thing about this place is the glorious view!!!!!

I took the above picture from my private balcony; all the room's have them. Another sweet touch!

Lest you think this food blogger forgot all about the eats :oP

I did partake on some of the yummy eats from the adjoining pub. While the menu is full of traditional pub fare there are also some mote inventive dishes.

I have to admit I worked on files while I waited for dinner. Still I would ocassionally take a break to soak in the patio atmosphere.

My dinner consisted of a grilled piece of salmon on a bed of mint tomato quinoa. So in other words something I would likely to be at home.

While the salmon was kind of overcooked my meal was still on the whole pretty yummers! :o)

After dinner I continued to work on the patio until the mosquitos just about ate me alive - eek!! When I finally came inside I drew a bath and relaxed.

Which brings me to now! :o)

But don't get the wrong idea - it's going to be a very long night and a ridiculously early morning. Which to be frank is why I try to sneak in the good stuff whenever I can. :o)

I'll check in with you tomorrow night bloggies. Wish me luck!

Hope all of you have a happy hump day!
