Back In The City

It's a 2 hour drive from home to Grande Prairie. Knowing we had to be there by 10 Saturday morning to bring the SUV to Hyundai for a recall to change the alternator and head gasket, we decided what the heck! Might as well leave today, do a little shopping, take in a movie and camp out at a hotel with a pool and hut tub. So we did!

Nice desk to sit and blog at. 

We worked all morning and by early afternoon we were on the road. We can't afford a trip to Cuba or Mexico but we can swing a partial weekend a couple hours away. It's been a wonderful day and evening and I'm super grateful.

That is one huge bed!

Went to see "Eddie the Eagle." Loved this movie inspired by true events of Eddie Edwards, a ski jumper at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. Well worth going to see in my opinion.

Tomorrow's agenda. Pool, Breakfast, Hyundai, Farmer's Market, London Drugs, Tea Shop, Best Buy, Costco. Then hopefully our vehicle will be ready and we can head back home. Pumpkin will be waiting to greet us. She was not a happy camper when she saw us leaving with an overnight bag.

A read this quote today and thought to myself, how true!
"Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life."

  1. A perfect wee getaway ... and no airports to wait around in!

  2. Exactly! Love these little excursions.
