Work + Play + More Work
A friend of ours asked, “Do you guys ever relax on weekends? It seems like all you do is chores.”. A door prize for our friend, please!!!! Yes, you are correct, sir! We NEVER relax on weekends!!!!!! I said to Jeff, “Just one day, I’d like to be that couple that sleeps in + leisurely has breakfast in bed while drinking coffee + reading the newspaper.”. Like this:
“Oh, hahaha!!! I just LOVE fresh squeezed orange juice!!! DON’T YOU????!!!! HAHAHA!!!” I would ecstatically exclaim.
Sigh. Nope! Not in this lady’s cards!!!!
Why does Jeff have stuff in this storage shed, you ask? Well, I’ll enlighten you! Jeff lived in this house for a good number of years during his youth. When Dolly + Peter moved in to rent the house, Jeff kept some of his belongings in the shed. Now we’re just trying to clear it out after years of neglect. Dolly put it the best when she said to me, “Sucks to be you!!!”. Yes, yes it does, Dolly.
At the end of this torturous day I was ready to drive off + make Jeff take a cab alone back to Calgary. My grand plan was to sulk in the car, but when Jeff drove us to Vermillion Lakes in Banff, it was so gorgeous that it coaxed me out of my childish funk.
A bald eagle!!!! In all my 36 years as an American, I’ve never once seen a bald eagle in the wild! This is probably my third bald eagle sighting in Canada!!! Unfortunately, iPhones are not so sharp in the zoom department.
That evening, Jeff + our buddy Kyle devised a plan on how to get the best free seats at the Canmore Folk Festival. You wanna know how? Drive right up to the outskirts of the fest, park yer truck + straight up chill out!!!!
Thanks, Jimmy. I knew you’d understand.
