I’m on day 14 of 25 of my great Canadian summer holiday. I’m still hanging out with my family in the vast prairie of Saskatchewan, where the sky is never-ending, the nights are chilly and the mosquitoes are giving Roatan’s a run for their money.
I only had 10 days here in Saskatchewan and I spent 3 of them in the neighboring province of Alberta at my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary, and another 2 to the ‘big city’ of Saskatoon a few hours north of my hometown for my little brother’s 27th birthday. It has been crammed with fitting in friends, and I hate the short time frame and all the traveling but I’m doing my best to see everyone because I honestly don’t know when I’ll be back again. I’m leaving tomorrow to go back to Vancouver for the rest of my trip – I have another wedding to attend and some serious quality time to get in with my best friend before I head home to Roatan.
In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to in photo-form:
|my brother and i decided to make an addition to our clean-eating diet… dim sum 🙂|
|summer 2010 vs. summer 2013.. from a dress & heels & nice makeup… to a skirt, sun bleached hair, flip flops and no makeup, honduras has turned me into a dirty hippie apparently! (bonus points for anyone who recognizes where this chair is from)|
|my brother driving his truck with a cowboy hat on. not doing much for the saskatchewan hick stereotype. (note: he’s a structural technologist, NOT a cowboy. just fyi.)|
|well. i went to the dump. that was neat. and for the record, it’s a lot nicer than roatan’s dump. i guess that’s not surprising.|
|my brother’s birthday dinner at home – he cooked the steak, i made the salad. best beef i’ve had since i left canada! roatan does not fare well in the cow department.|
|so if your friend you haven’t seen in like 10 years is a tattoo artist and she’s really busy and you want to see her… you go get a tattoo. this is sushi tattoo #4.. red snapper. go see alana at bloodline tattoo company in moose jaw!!|
|fancy teppanyaki birthday dinner for my brother in saskatoon… sadly this was the only photo that turned out.|
That’s it for now, and sorry to my Instagram friends who already saw all these. I have more photos from my fancy new camera but I won’t be downloading and editing them until I get back to Roatan. 12 days…. the countdown is on.
