Day 30!!! Finally made it. An amazing experience, might keep it up in an offline journal. Today I slept in…was served breakfast in bed…full day of nerdery on my computer…drived in a sketchy snow storm…dinner with family and friends…drived back … Continue reading
My goodness coming in on the second last day. Tonight Kristen assembled the tiny Christmas tree she’s had since childhood. What started as a few lovely pics turned into the mandatory effects play with the on screen camera. She is … Continue reading
Busy day…and the evening’s shenanigans have not even started! Today I’m sending out my gratitude shout-out to “Duolingo”. For those that don’t know what Duolingo is, its a FREE language learning tool. I’ve test drove Rosetta Stone before and I … Continue reading
Chef Ari brought over some beers…yes, free beers after the gym…that should pan things out. I’m playing on my first Macbook (no this is not a product placement for this site) that I am buying off Chef. Kristen is not … Continue reading
I had an unusual dream this morning! A group of extremists demanded I write an essay or my iphone which was altered as a bomb would explode destroying the entire neighborhood. I awoke realizing I had forgotten another 30journey entry … Continue reading
Mondays….meh. The only thing that made today a beauty was visiting Kristen’s nanny tonight after work for dinner. Esther is pretty amusing. Here’s a classic photo of her that says it all.
Thank you Mr. President for your fine selection! (Someone cut me off!!!)
Great day skydiving with friends…excellent house party with excellent hosts after! Grateful for my circle!
Feeling a little tired and possible falling into Kristen’s evil plan trying to get me sick! “Vitamin C…bombs away!” However I’m grateful I was able to push out another author’s fine article on another blog I assist with: www.millennialmainframer.com What I … Continue reading
Here’s something I’m exceptionally grateful for…my family! My immediate family is quite small, my extended family is HUGE! Since my father passed away back in 2000, I’ve come to realize many things including how lucky I am to have the … Continue reading
Guilty pleasures!!! The household was in much needed pampering after a long hump day.
I actually forgot to make an entry last night! It was a classic example of “goldfish memory”. My ‘make a 30journey entry’ reminder went off, I looked at it…and then I must have saw something shiny. No Toastmasters last night… … Continue reading
Manditory mention of Remembrance Day today. I’m grateful for my freedom!
Another lazy Sunday!!! I actually have an afternoon to read Malcolm Gladwell’s new book. (Thanks Baby for the semi-selfie ;)) Late night surprise, I teach another buddy how to pack a reserve parachute. Grateful I’m able to teach someone something … Continue reading
I never really expressed this before but my neighbor gave me an old snowblower last year. Even though I gave him a case of beer as a ‘thank you’ I honestly thought she was a dud! NEVER LOOK A GIFT … Continue reading
Friday night…dinner cooked by chef Ari. Now watching him fix the metal lathe so he can eventually make parachute packing tools. (Usually they retail for $25 a piece…will cost him less a dollar to make.)
Even though us Canucks love to complain about winter… I’m always grateful for the first snow fall of the year.
Today was one of those days…nothing worked! My computer crashed, unfilled requests, and miscellaneous annoyances. Despite that… and don’t tell anyone this… “I love my job! I get to play on computers and tinker with software for a living! I … Continue reading
Grateful I was here for brother inlaw’s birthday party!!! There was many family and friends…now its winding down. (Too much food again!!! Dang, we’re lucky.)
I’m grateful Toastmaster meeting and my Competent Communication speech #8 – Visual Aids went well! Here’s after meeting notes and my beautiful hoochie college girl working hard in the background!
i’ll try not to make every entry food related…but I’m grateful for making dinner with Kristen while talking about whats new. Especially when we made an attempt at copying The Rodfather from Toronto’s Hey Meatball….only homemade!!! Delicious and deadly!!!
Sushi dinner with buddy after a very cold skydive!
I’m grateful my Toastmaster humour contest speech Division went well….even though I didnt place. Also grateful for the free steak dinner at my sister’s!!!!!!!
I’m grateful that from a year from now, or 365 days….or 365 M&M peanuts I’ll be marrying Kristen.
