So, the last 10 years or so, I have wanted to do the Camino de Santiago. Not walking though. I would rather bike it.
Time, money and fitness level at the moment would prevent me from doing it but I saw The Conqueror Event Series and thought I would try the Camino virtually.
So, today I sign up.
I downloaded the apps and I am ready to start tomorrow.
If you are interested: it is HERE.
There are other Challenges: Hadrian's Wall, Inca Trail, English Channel, Alps to Ocean, Great Ocean Road, Grand Canyon, Length of the UK, Route 66, The Appalachian Trail.
It looks like I picked one of the longer ones!
I start in virtual Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.
June 28 was my 54th birthday. It was a good day. I got a wonderful card and video from my daughter.
My Guy bought me a bearded dragon. I have wanted one for a while now.
I went to see Crash Test Dummies in January! This time, I went by self. Nothing like sitting enjoying the music!
On August 18, my cousin, my daughter and myself went to see P!nk in Toronto.
It was a GREAT concert.
This was originally scheduled for May but was postponed because of a throat infection. It was well worth the wait.
It was awesome.
Thank you P!nk for a wonderful show!!
My dad died less than a week before I turned 13.
40 years ago.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him. He was truly a nice person. I try to make him proud every day. Some days that is harder than others.
On Dec 25, my daughter turned 24.
We had a good Christmas Day, although I was busy cooking for 16 people!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!!!
Today was a BUSY day!
I did errands and grocery shopping early in the morning. Then I spent the better part of the day in the kitchen- cooking. I made homemade dog food (ground beef, peppers, spinach, broccoli and a few blueberries) and liver dog treats. That went into our brand new freezer!
I cut up a huge amount of vegetables for the week: celery, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, peppers. I roasted potatoes and cauliflower and made two loaves of meatloaf- which I put into containers for the freezer for a few dinners over the week.
My daughter graduated from University two weeks ago. What an accomplishment.
I thought I would do a few comparisons.
This is me on the left, 29 years ago, when I graduated from Nursing School. I was two weeks shy of 23 years old. My daughter, on the right, is 23 and just finished her architectural history degree.
Me? Canadian, writer, RN, crafter, Girl Guide Leader, Red Hatter, 3-dog owner, photographer, geocacher, cool Mom, and all around FUN and FUNNY person!
