Que Pasa in the Casa

Hola bloggies!!! I've missed you so much!!!!

Sentencing on my big bad murder trial will take place in a few hours. Which means at long last my life can return to it's normal state. Meaning blogging, running, training, hopefully getting rid of this cold, a vacation on the Coast, and a new friend to boot.

Want to see some pictures of what I've seen and done since we last caught up?




For starters I bought this bad boy. I figured I might as well join the club! :oP lol

I thrived in Victoria when I was working out with a trainer. Here in the Rockies I don't have a trainer and thus I slack. I'm hoping Tony will be my virtual trainer and help me regain top form.




On one particular day when I was going to go stir-crazy the Fiance took me on a jewel of a hike!!!





The views were spectacular in spite of the fact you couldn't see the top of the mountains. It's started snowing now so they look even more impressive. I have plans to go back up there on a crystal clear day and take more pictures!




One thing I definitely neglected during the trial was exercise. Truth be told I was working so much I would only really come home to sleep. It wore
me down. Which is probably why I have Bern nursing a cold for weeks now.

Mental note: NEVER do that again! It's not cool to
feel like your musceles are undergoing atrophy!

Thankfully (no pun intended) I did get to take some time out for Canadian Thanksgiving! Which obviously meant some yummy eats! Wooohooo!! :o)




Like my pecan pie? Twas delicious!!!




As per the Fiance's request I made lamb - formerly my favourite mean. I ate sone and quickly discovered there's no going back. I'm solidly a pescatarian! In fact my mom has promised to make me lobster for Christmas! lol :oP




For Thanksgiving Sunday we decided to attend a service at a local heritage site (like a pioneer village of sorts). They decided to
host the service in the old 1800s church.

Let me tell you if there are brownie points in Heaven for sitting through a cold service, we scored BIG time!!! lol The heating system wasn't working so we sat in -12C weather!!!!! It was nuts! In fact I didn't take off my ski jacket all service long. :oP




After the service we promptly headed to the local bakery and warmed up with a piping hot bowl of soup.




It's a lovely bakery! They bake with grains milled on site. They also try to stick to heritage baking methods.




Plus who can argue with results like these! lol A ridonculously yummy cherry pie! :o)




Other than that, I've been working on acquiring a new friend. This is Daisy - she's coming home this Friday!!!!!!!!




We plan on being buds for a very long time!! :o)




Isn't she insanely cute?!?!? She's a half Bichon Frise and half Shihtzu. That makes Daisy a Zuchon or Shichon. :o)

So there you have it - you're all caught up now! Look for another post (a review) later tonight!

Happy Tuesday amigos!!! :o)

Marlene,

Isn't she though?! I'm thrilled to bits about her impending arrival!

And I'm totally thrilled about the trial being done. I injured myself so I wasn't ready for the half but it turns out u wouldn't have been able to go.

Hoping to do the Nike Women's virtual half in the New Year!
