I don’t even know where to start.
This week has been so full, everyday so exhausting (in a good way), I’m still trying to process everything.
I arrived in my new town on Wednesday, after a glorious trek through the Rockies…where wildlife was finally seen (see moose below). You’d think with the size they would be easier to spot, but they kind of sneak up on you.
My new house and roommate are great. I’m house sitting for him for the next month, as he is away, which includes dog sitting. Skeena is part lab and husky and the most well behaved dog I have ever met. She’s at my feet now, I’ll have to take a few pictures and upload. The house has a couple of quirks, mainly my bathroom, but also the oven door, which is also broken, and has to be propped up with a chair to close, which is problematic and dangerous. I might have to limit my baking.
Started work today, and the people seem to be very lovely. There is defintely a lot of work to do, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
The town itself is much bigger than I thought, roughly 20,000 people. I’ve already been to the library, art store, tea house, and sushi bar. Oh, and I befriended the bartender at the pub yesterday. They have a dozen kinds of cider! I think I’ll fit right in.
I have heaps of photos to share, but might take a while to upload to Flickr. I have about two dozen road signs alone, and of course traveling Yoda needs his own album. Here are a few in the meantime.
