Monday Mundane

deer
This curious-looking deer doesn't really have much to do with this anything, but I thought it was nice enough to post. We spotted it at Bill's place while scouting out his new fence for him, and wandering around the house figuring out where our furniture is going to go. We're really getting excited about moving in...well, not the moving so much, but the being all moved in sounds excellent.

Despite the lack of photographic evidence, we had a great mellow weekend, kicked off by supper at the Hieberts' Friday night. Breakfast at The Elite Saturday morning, followed by some wandering along Main Street in Penticton, mostly window shopping. Ivy and I went for coffee and errands in Summerland later, and Lorne brought his girls over for supper Saturday night while Tannis played hockey. I ended up riding both days, enjoying the warmer weather after Thursday's wintery blast.

Last night Myron and I put in a serious two-hour Ping Pong session, capping off the weekend with some Black Toque and as much conversation as we could muster in the flurry of action across the table. Although I have at times been critical of his behemoth shed-building project, I'm seeing some benefits emerging now, especially since he had the good sense to invest in a kick-ass table-tennis setup.

Nothing tops off a weekend like a good match of ping pong - or in our case, croakenole. (If someone can tell me how that word is actually spelled, I'd be much appreciative).

oh, moving sounds so fun! sounds...
Do you get to paint?

We haven't talked about paint. A potential downside of the renting thing...

Happy moving - unpacking sucks, I think we still have boxes yet to be unpacked and we've been our new digs for a couple years already...

Nice shot of the wandering deer - wacky weather we've been having - all our local snow is gone but I haven't had a chance to check out the trail conditions in the sandilands - the hills tend to keep the whitestuff longer...

Yeah, hopefully we can get rid of some junk so we're not moving things we'll never use again.

It's been mixed weather here too -- the snowline on the mountains moves down for a day or two, then disappears altogether, and then it's back the next day...it's getting to be the season where it's never a sure thing that riding conditions will be good.

Two days of riding bliss and amazing weather - too many hunters for my liking but the riding absolutely amazing! I hope you've been able to escape as well on your two wheels of adventure!

Right on -- nice to get a late-fall riding reprieve. I've been riding almost obsessively lately; four or five times a week. Good fun.
