a walk by the beach

mom was up for the ottawa race weekend and did well in the 1/2...4th in her age group. we took it easy the day after her race by going for a long walk by the beach on petrie island, and then along the ecological preserve. it's a 5min drive from my home.

it's the weird but amazing thing about ottawa...the country in the city.

tulip fest with friends

dragging on

i guess i didn't know how long house sales could drag on
such is the case with our townhouse
we are still waiting for the closing of it
to finally put up the sold sign
when the offer came in 2 weeks ago
slow slow
but looking forward to moving on

am slowly catching up with friends that i haven't seen in a while
and also those who came for a visit
sue and tad were up over this past weekend
infused with cold, rainy bouts
but we filled it with great food, good wine and lots of tulip festivities
sue and i scored a free 15$ razor...who would have expected that at a tulip festival
so i am going to post a photo summary of the weekend among friends and tulips

our new house

after an exhausting series of hours..
back forth back again
scratching and refining an signing and resigning
it is almost here
signing on to our next home on lorne avenue in west centretown
close to everything
needs lots of work and love
but the right fit
we think
and hope
this is our new home to be!
and once the conditions are met
and the inspections are done
the work and move will begin
summer of relocation
and finally downtown again!

scary exciting work
but all this hardwood and brick and a view with no rear neighbours are great seductors!

moving into may

you can tell that steve and i are trying to sell our house from the lack of blog posts
the cleaning and organising are taxing

i have just completed a course in tibetan acupressure
and now to get certified i need a lot of case studies

i took a short term leave of absence from air canada
yep the 430 and 530 am shift starts are not for me and this is the first time i wasn't able to get myself an evening bid
back at the beginning of july

but i have been filling the time with building my own business which is scary and challenging and exciting and fun
sometimes it amazes me how you can keep changing your life
if you want to
