Spring flu

Growls to getting sick on beautiful days. Cold or rain, don’t mind staying in bed, but in this weather? Come on body, get with it!


Cheers to my fellow ball players on the start of another season. Looking forward to seeing you out there. Let’s have some fun!

A+ service

Hug to Riley from two ladies for bringing them their coffee at A&W to their table to avoid the long tour-bus line-up.

Mountain biking

Hug to my mountain bike for putting up with my shoddy directions. I don’t mean to hit all the rocks and logs. My reactions are just a couple bends behind on the trail. I’m told practice makes one better?


Growl to the baker (myself) for not realizing that the recipe was using European measurements. Turns out 1 1/2 cups of butter in Europe, isn’t 1 1/2 cups in Revelstoke. Instead of being a lovely pear cardamom streusel cake with white chocolate, it become butter soup with chunks. Oh dear.

Butter take two

But don’t worry. I could never stay mad at you for long. My life revolves around you.
