We’ve had over a week of rain and finally last night I noticed some sun peeking through; the forecast for the rest of the week is much brighter too! Much to my surprise the rain doesn’t bother us and we have adapted well to it with the proper attire and our necessary umbrellas; part of the west coast’s mandatory accessories. I even purchased a red one to match my Volkswagen.
With my new business I am finding myself travelling all over the lower mainland; North Vancouver, downtown, Richmond, Langley, Delta, Surrey, Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam; wherever I am requested. Were it not for my trusty GPS mounted on my windshield I would never get home; I’d just be permanently lost. (I love technology!) I don’t know that all the travelling is getting me anymore familiarized with our home location but I sure see a lot of neighbourhoods.
Meanwhile Rick is learning plenty at our future new business; things about car care he had never seen or tried before. Last week he assisted in some window tinting and I am hoping he will be able to hone that skill in order to give the VW windows some colour soon. He fits in well with the current staff who we are hoping to keep on once we takeover at the end of November and he is enjoying the activity.
And so things are taking on an air of routine and our stationary life is becoming quite normal; as if we’d been doing it for years. Much to my surprise I am not yet missing our traveling life probably because we are so busy and the time continues to fly by. Over the weekend we spent some time visiting Jay in Yaletown and having dinner with Karley and Ian in New Westminster so we are getting some family fixes in too. Life is good!
When Makai and Monet spent the night with us they enjoyed themselves playing on the deck and looking down at the gardens below (it was the last time we saw sunshine too!)
