My Body Hurts

Advertisements

Yesterday (at the time of writing this) my roommate convinced me to climb Boucherie Mountain again. We’ve been walking around it to get some good mileage in. Well, she did a good job. Here are some pictures from out first real hike of the year!

We tried to be up before the sun came up, but the sun beat us (bully). Even though we couldn’t beat the sun, this view is just perfect. Onto breakfast, picnic style! Midna is such a good girl, she loves hiking with us! Sitting and waiting for mum and mum to finish their breakfast though, not so much. My feet are sore and my lungs are sad, but this is some great quality time! Well, back down the mountain I guess.

It’s just after 8:30am and I just got out of the shower. My feet still hurt and breakfast wasn’t enough, so I’m going to go cook something. Calorie burning makes one hungry. I love the views up there so much, I hope you enjoy them too!!!! Climbing the mountain is and always will be worth every minute it takes. 

Be safe out there, especially if you live near me with all the bears, mosquitoes, and rattlesnakes!

Went Out Again

Oh, my goodness! I get to go for a walk with the boyfriend and his precious pup too??? FRICK YEAH!

We ended up going the wrong way and walking way too far. My feet hurt and my legs are aching. And my underwear was rubbing my legs wrong so that fabric burn is just… Great… Tonight, dinner and relaxing on the couch, and only that. Catch everyone tomorrow morning.

The Next Morning

My feet and legs are surprisingly okay today! My hip on the other hand, is straight up fucked. Standing in the mirror, I don’t know if it’s my brain or what, but my butt also looks extra good today too. Maybe Onlyfans isn’t too distant of a dream..

Story Time

Back in high school I took dance instead of the P.E. class. And one day I decided I was going to try my hand at a pirouette, or three, and I landed very wrong. Turns out there isn’t much muscle in my hip and the bone grinded on the other bone and… yeah… Long story short my hip is messed up and will be for a long time. Slow muscle gain can help a lot, at least that’s what I was told years ago. Since then, I started working my hip more through basic workouts. 

But Yeah

I had a fun day. Between the mountain, both my dog children, and the sense of adventure, it was a great day. Thanks for coming with, and have a great day!

My First Few Days

Advertisements

New job, same old house. In case you didn’t know, I got a “work from home” job working for a new telecommunications company. In the grand scheme of telecommunications, I moved from Bell to Rogers. Work desk lives pretty much behind my computer desk. Cramped doesn’t quite cover how this room is right now, but that’s alright. With said new job, this has been my first few days.

Dad and I went back to plant land

Day One is Always Fun

First day, starting off strong with a woodpecker on my roof. Bastard bird… I love woodpeckers, they’re cute and are honestly one of the better birds. But this dickhead, is on my roof. Roof ain’t good for bird. They’re endangered, so no harm must come to this bird. I must be creative in getting this feathered friend to leave. Apparently a plastic owl or even a pie plate on my roof can scare it off. Only thing is, I don’t want to scare the other birds too. Plus, my house is like, the bird sanctuary of the neighbourhood. I’ve got to get super freaking creative…

Oh, I guess I also had my first shift. First day was a good day! Met my “class” and learned how to play with the computer system Linux a little. Otherwise, work is work. 

My little dolphin

Onto the Real Learning

Day two has its own spice. We all introduce ourselves and spend hours learning about the company. I’ve worked some shitty jobs before, but the overall environment from this job so far is very, comfy. Feeling safe and like I can actually talk to people is amazing. Talks of inclusivity and helping our community are also very large topics for today. I’m lowkey really into this job..

Other than work, Percy is also an issue lately. The past little while he’s been sitting by the front door meowing for hours at a time, and like, I love him. But after only a few hours of sleep and he’s just whining at the door for about an hour makes me want to die. (Not really, but it sucks.) *As of the moment of writing this, Shadow almost died… Bastard tipped over a water glass and killed the power to half my trailer. So that’s cool… Poor baby, didn’t even know what happened. 

Best shot I’ve got of her yet

Anyway

This job is going to be a big part of my life for probably a long time, which means my streaming schedule is going to change. I’ll be trying to stream in the morning, starting between seven and eight, and going until about ten. Don’t worry, I’m still around. That and with a new job, and warmer weather, I’ll be blogging more too! So stay tuned for blog updates!

Drenched war horse

But Yeah

Life is fun right now. I know this is coming out at a weird time of day, but work and Shadow, it’s been a busy day. I appreciate everything from everyone, and I hope you have an amazing day!

Christmas Already

Advertisements

Wow, tomorrow is Christmas. Feels like it was April like three days ago. I’m alone at work today, yes I work Christmas eve, but that’s fine honestly. I know there are going to be people who may need a phone or whatever, and it’s my bosses birthday today. Either way, I don’t mind being here. Christmas is going to be awesome this year!

My baby boy

There’s a few more presents for my boyfriend in my closet. He was all “don’t buy me things,” so I bought him the odd couple of things. If I have the chance, I’m going to give them to him today or tomorrow. Oh hey, side note, when I got my new phone, I got some airpods as a gift with purchase. I don’t buy Apple products since I’m a Samsung person and all, so I decided to sell these headphones. I just sold them, got myself $150!

Percy is such a good boy!

Without much going on, I don’t have anything really to talk about. The Mandalorian is over, so no more of that until next year. Orange is the New Black is still an amazing show. The Boys season three is coming out soon.
I have a surprising amount of receiving to do today. Hopefully work isn’t busy so I can go home early. I may not get to though, just with the amount of foot traffic I’ve already had. Going home early is all I’ve got to look forward to. That’s a joke, but not totally.

Midna is camera shy

Well, that’s all I really have to talk about. Supposedly our random snowstorm will be gone by tomorrow, so no white Christmas. If all the ice melts, I’ll be happy. Walking to and from work with nothing but ice on the roads, not fun. I’ve been procrastinating putting my car back on the road, which may be so, not in my favour. We’ll see what happens in January.

Pardon my mess of a living room

Thanks for stopping by today. Be safe, have a great holiday season, and stay warm!

Going Back on Lockdown

Advertisements

Depending on where you are, life is getting complicated again. My local news site has been sharing some sad stuff about the schools around here. Children are known for carrying all sorts of diseases, and that’s starting to really show. In my local area, there’s been a couple schools now with new cases. If everything gets bad again, we’ll have to go back into lockdown. There are definitely perks and some real downsides to being back under voluntary house arrest.

Last time we were on lockdown, we did so much hiking! And I would love to get back on that train as I was in good shape and getting amazing pictures! I just got my replacement headphones in the mail too. I claimed my warranty so I can hike and walk around more. Hiking is just, so much fun and really good for the body. With snow coming soon, I’ll get so many beautiful pictures! Who needs a gym when you live next to a mountain?

Don’t mind the roommate

My mental health peaked so hard during lockdown! Although, I’ve made real progress over the past few months. Finances too, lockdown makes money saving so easy! With everywhere being closed it’s almost impossible to go out to buy food after all. Midna is also 100% a fan of lockdowns. More walks, and both mums being around all day, it’s a dream come true for her! Not the cats though, they still hate everything.

If, or I guess when, lockdown happens, we’ll see how it goes. I’m not worrying either way. As far as I’m concerned, life is great. Side note, no post on Monday as it’s my birthday! I’m going to be busy the whole weekend. Maybe Wednesday I’ll have a filler post. Being a holiday I should be able to make that work. Anyway, that’s all I have for today. Talk soon, and be safe out there!

That Time of Year Again

Advertisements

On Friday it snowed. I know, that word. I went back and looked and I didn’t talk about the snow last year? Normally the first snowfall of the year brings joy. I however hate winter and the holiday season. Now, I’m not totally sure if it’s PMS or I’m actually The Grinch, but I am against most of everything right now. Supposedly next week temperatures reach almost eleven on the positive side.

It’s now Tuesday and the high for today is about six, which is nice. That’s more fall weather than what we had for the past couple of days. The snow is going to start melting and walking to work will be much safer. People who don’t, or can’t in some occasions, stop at crosswalks, and ice patches make getting around difficult sometimes. When the weather gets bad, my family starts calling cop cars with their lights on “Christmas Lights”, so there’s those too. I’m mostly just saying vehicles are dangerous.

The view out my bedroom window the other day

Since spending the past couple days in the snow, I’ve been kind of enjoying it. I don’t know what it is, but walking to and from work is kind of super peaceful. My headphones are out for warranty so I’ve made that trip with the background noise of the highway. Watching the road and the snow falling is a lot more pleasant. I’m pretty sure, after a couple more snowfalls, I’ll secretly love winter and whatnot. The snow has definitely been inspiring too. I’ve got a couple shorts I’ve been trying to work on since Friday.

Walking through the snow is also a great workout. You either have to lift you legs like, twenty centimeters off the ground with every step, or drag the snow. By the new year, my legs are going to be so strong. I say that, I don’t really measure my strength ever, and at this point, I’m rambling. My bad. But yeah, snow! I’m also going to go skating this year, I’ve made that promise to myself.

But yeah, that’s all I’ve got for today. Stay warm and safe out there! Oh, and check out this adorable picture of Midna! Thanks!
