I went to Kelowna for the family day long weekend. My sister is out there on a work rotation and Kelowna was a substantially more appealing destination to visit than Winnipeg. Plus, it was an opportunity to visit my friend, Dana, and her fiance, Brent, who are livin' the dream with two dogs, a boat, and a big house in Kelowna (isn't that what people work their whole lives for?).

Highlights of the weekend included:

  • Luxury accomodation at chez Dana, which included a cookie and chocolate on my pillow and a trashy magazine on the bed side table, as well as delicious breakfast in the morning (donuts on day one, pancakes on day two) and wine and good company at night.
  • A romantic couples massage that Dana booked for the two of us. I probably should have seen it coming after having seen the heart shaped cookie and chocolate on my pillow (poor girl, I hope I didn't break her heart).
  • Snowshoeing with my sister, Todd and Rory. It was a beautiful, sunny day and it felt good to be outside. We even made a snowman.
  • Cross country skiing with Todd; even the black diamond trail that he lured me onto (and which I ultimately wiped out on). He's such a thrill seeker. It's pretty cool to have a brother-in-law that I like enough to consider a real friend.
  • Seeing how strong and healthy my nephew has become. He really likes to move those little legs of his. I have a feeling that he's going to be a great cyclist one day.
  • Having dinner with all five of the people I came to visit in one room. Relaxing with great company and good food. That's what life's all about.
