Shane and I are on holidays for the next 2 weeks. We are using this time to recharge and get some things done around the house. For the past week or so we have been slaving in our backyard to do some landscaping and let me tell you…this body was not made for manual labour. But things are coming together, especially thanks to my dad, Aaron (brother) and Dana (brother’s gf) we were able to accomplish a lot together. Not to mention Shane’s absolute dedication to the task that can sometimes find him out shovelling and raking while yours truely is playing Frogger on the Xbox. Of course have no fears, I can barely lift my arms as I type this so I assure I have logged my fair share of hours too despite moments of weakness (literally and figuratively).
In addition to the manual labour, which is actually quite good for the mind, we are also hoping to get some fishing and camping in. The general theme will be offline activities with the exception of a few minor tasks.
Next week I am off to Redmond. It will be my first time there so I am pretty excited. Can’t talk much about it now but should be able to post some pics and fill in details later. In any event, I am looking forward to it.
