After reading Joaquin's blog

Whoa! Talk about near life experience.
My job is sooo much more dull.

I've made promisses to put up pictures for weeks and weeks now. Sorry for being a jerk.
I have some from cowichan lake that are up on facebook, but I'll post them here too, if I can remember to do so.
Grandma Dodo arrives today.. Can't wait!!

Spring Time for Rinah

Hello friends and family

Why not catch up and do some sharing -

I've been back to work sometime now, back into the ol' groove of early mornings and long days. It's good though, makes me feel important.
Sky has been loving working outside this season with his brother. I wish he would put on more sun screen. I never cease to nag ~
We moved into our new apartment this week. We are soooo happy in James Bay. Quiet street, Dallas road, lots of space, all our old junk. We're still unpacking.. a process that we're not too keen on.
Nod is working a few jobs now and looking to take on more.. I guess the service industry agrees with her.
I've been doing some catalog shopping that seems to agree with me.

We're looking forward to the big GK visit this month and the couple of days that we'll see Jesse and Yavone.

Keep up the communication folks. I'll have a new phone number on Thursday, and I guess I should post my new address too...

New Plan

So.. I woke up on Sat morning and decided that I'd like to work and live in another country. Sky and I have both been considering this for the last few years. Given that our last few trips have no exactly been short I think it's safe to say that we've been preparing ourselves for something like this for awhile.
Now, where are we going?
I've tentatively picked the date of 2010. Now this is based on the fact that we did just get home and that we have no idea where we want to go or what we want to do.
I've just had a quick look at this page and a good read threw and once we decide where we want to go we should have lots of time for the red tape and eliminating the majority of our belongings, visas etc.
I'd like to work in an office, bookkeeping would be nice, and I think Sky would be fine with pretty much anything. He'd be happy with a construction or labour job.
Soooo.. if anyone has any suggestions.. or if you know a country or a town that is nice and would recommend living there that'd be great.
Right now I'm thinking strictly english speaking nations. England or Australia... but any suggestions are good ones. Once we pick our destination we can start looking for a neighborhood and a job.
So thats that.
Hope to hear from you soon

I'm a Liar

Sorry guys. No pictures, no news.
The weather has been shit these last few weeks. Snow everyday, then sun, then more snow.
Not the best weather for camping. We're still gonna go, just not yet. Hopefully we'll hit some golf islands or head up tward tofino and ucluelet.
It will be all the better when it's sunny and warm.
Dad left today for California. We will watch the house for April and find our own appartment for May.

I won't make anymore promises.. ha ha

Get Back to Work !!!

Yeah.. I'm back to work. Sort of.
I'm writing this from my new office !!! I'm assistent to the controller. I've been working at the same company for a long time now.. I guess persistence pays off.
That is until they catch you updating your blog at work. Ha ha.

The latest is...... we had a nice valentines day. Nothing too crazy cuz it was a work day, but alittle noodle box with a nice view is ok with me.

The spring weather is here and we've been doing a bit of hiking. Well.. this last weekend anyway. The sky is so clear and blue, but there is still a bit of chill in the air. It is perfect for hiking. Nadia on the other hand has ordered "turbo jam" and swears it's better then going hiking outside. I haven't tried it yet but the woman on the tape is completly insaine.
I guess I should register for school again. I've been out so long that I need to register again. Kind of a bummer.
Ooh! I go get contacts today after work. My very first pair. I hope they work out ok... my perscription is alot stronger now.
Nadia called me "Mr Rushton" becuase of the thickness of my glasses. Nothing hurts more then words.
Sky is going to be working with his bro outside this season, building decks. I wish I was outside.
I'll be off work in 10 min. Can't wait for dallas road.. We will probably make it for sunset, if I get those contacts quickly.

Love and Hugs
Keep in touch

Hello family and loved ones.

Yes.. it is 2008! It has been an unexpected couple of days. My mother has been in central america, my sister at mt. washington and skyler is making the trip up north to visit family.

Yes I was left home, but its for the best.

I wanted to fill in some of the blanks from our photo's online.

These are from the last days on the kibbutz and our stay in Jerusalem.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

Keep in touch.

Rinah and Skyler.
