A Summer Reality

Rob and I on the boat..




















The night before at the beach.



















This is the Dingy Dock Pub. So neat.































WOOOOW. It is HOT here. I know that it was hot in the summer back in Alberta. But this heat is intense. I am not complaining though. The summer rays always bring out the kids in us.

I came home from work today, and Mama J. had the sprinkler spraying up as she's yelling, "Wanna come in my shower!!?" I love it. Summer time is the ideal time of the year. Some people can't hack the heat. But I personally say, buck up and enjoy the weather. I understand it gets to be too hot, and people get grumpy and tired. But always remember, you could be other places quite unpleasant. Being at work in a place where most people travel to on vacation is punishement. But while I am there I think about where else I could be that is worse. The hospital came to mind. Can you imagine being sick in the hospital during the summer, or ever for that matter?

Not necessarily someone in my life, but someone else in another life is in fact facing a struggle in a hospital. I think of her whenever I feel like complaining. I remember what it's like to visit someone sick in the hospital and how much I disliked it. I hate to imagine of what that would be like. To be sick, scared and have everyone around trying to act happier is just a plain old nightmare. I won't let on who it is, for it is someone that I do not know. But she's just a little girl that should be screaming and jumping through sprinklers herself. I think of her and hope that my comments might make her smile, if not only for a moment.

Last night I went out with the famdamily and celebrated the summer by floating on a boat, alongside the BC ferries, the marina and AN OCEAN PUB. It felt like I was on my own little mini-vacation. I had a hell of a busy day at work and then I got to be a tourist and drink beers and visit with family. It was the perfect reward.

I like these new people in my life. Thinking back to a year ago I would never have imagined life to be like this. Rob, Mom and I are all celebrating our one year of living here this week. It's a celebration of the times already shared, and the ones to follow.


I welcome this summer with open arms!

If it makes you feel any better, that little girl (if we're talking about the same little girl) got a break for the week.. and was hanging out at the park by the pool just last night.. fuzzy bald head and all.

And I know for a fact your comments make her smile. It's been discussed.

Such cute pics. They make me want to say "awwwwwww."

Just thought I would pop in and say Hi!

I found your blog via Holli's and have to say it looks wonderful!

Your promise ring is beautiful, and I know the feeling of seing little red pumping hearts in someones eyes.....I've been married now for fourteen years, we've been together for 18 years and I still see them when I look into his gorgeous blue eyes too!

Looking forward to reading your history when I return from my holidays.

Hugs

Whisky
