Canoeing with Brittany

Brittany and Paul Canoeing

An absolutely amazing day all started with an awesome little trip with Brittany in the canoe up the slough and out into the Pitt River a little.

Here’s a short video of us getting the canoe onto the wheels:

We had a really good pace, and not only did we see a bunch of sweet scenery on such an amazing day, but we also had a half-dozen sightings of the resident Great Blue Herons.

You can see a couple pictures of one in my photo album.

After our epic journey, we were exhausted and napped back at my place for an hour before heading over to fufill my craving for Chinese food!  They really pile heaps onto your plate – I’ve literally got dinner for three days now!

Afterwards, I treated us to some gellato over at a place in Newport village, then we grabbed some coffee and went back to my place to watch “The Parking Garage” on Seinfeld!

Later that night a bunch of us went out to see You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, and I got to sleep around 2am.

A Day With My Darling

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Well, I will admit that posting on my blog again yesterday for the first time in a while felt pretty good! I woke up today feeling more accomplished and more on top of things!

Brittany came over this morning and we wandered over to the airport to talk to the folks over at Air Canada about one of her bags that they “lost” when she flew back from Milan over 40 days ago! The whole thing is a long story, but basically today went really well because we found out that her bag is in a warehouse in Montreal and we put in a request to retrieve it and she should have it soon! Hoorah!

Mom’s Birthday

Back at home, we had a small celebration with a few relatives for my Commander Keenmom’s birthday which was last week, and it was nice for Brittany to hang around and mingle with some of the folks a little. We ordered Chinese food for dinner and afterwards I spent my evening playing Commander Keen with Brit.

After she took off, I spent two hours taking apart, dusting out, and upgrading my file server Bob. He is now hosting a total of 3.6 Terabytes on his own… which accounts for slightly over half the hard drive storage I have in my house.
