Exciteable descriptions of a new life living in "The Best Place on Earth". The new template is more basic, more classy, tidier... so totally not me!

2:08 p.m. - Today I cycled to work.

When I left the sun was not yet in the sky, though it was light and pretty cloudy for the Okanagan. By the time I got in it was drizzling but still it was beautiful, peaceful and tranquil, riding through the orchards and the increasing number of vineyards that have sprung up in their place. The birds were singing and I was only passed by 3 cars before I diverted onto the KVR and remained car-free for the remaining 9 miles to within ¼ mile of work.

As I rode along the top of the benches (and approached more sociable hours) I watched a red retriever (must’ve been crossed with a red setter) chase a pheasant out of the brush.

I almost got in on time (must do better next time). In the blurr of 5:30am I didn’t put my watch on so I don’t know what time I left but my guess is the 12 mile ride was pretty slow. I think I have enough energy to get home – so long as I don’t get stuck here too late. For once I am trying to sit down as much as possible (but I’m not managing it).

Pasta for dinner – definitely (then sit and look at the fully painted walls).
