Playing with the XSi

Bob has become my model as I learn how to use the XSi properly. I got these two shots as Bob curled up on our bed last weekend.

Valentine's day

On Valentine’s day, Ed and I went to see a chick flick (Confessions of a Shopaholic) in the afternoon, and then Ed cooked a very delicious dinner for me. We had red pepper soup, eggplant timbale, and rack of lamb. For dessert, there was creme brulee, cheesecake, and tiramisu. Everything was so scrumptious and tasty. Thanks for such a wonderful treat, Ed! Love you.

Team Navarik - Curling

Yesterday afternoon, a bunch of us left work a little early to go curling at the Marpole Curling Club. So much fun! Things are a little stressful at work so it was a real treat to hang out with my colleagues, throw some rocks around, and just have a great time. Our team (the Reds) was down 3-0 heading into the last end but we managed to tie it up! Very exciting.

Back on the water

Last Monday, I attended OC6 practice with the FCRCC women. It was a light practice - 10 min segments - which was perfect for my first time out. The last time I paddled was last September for the Day of the Long Boat race. For this practice, we paddled around False Creek for about 50 mins. It was not too cold; the water was calm and there was a full moon. A beautiful night for paddling.

Two days later, my back is still feeling sore and stiff. But I’m happy to be paddling again. The first time out is always the hardest but now that that’s over with, I can just keep going.
