Camp Counsellor

Once again it is Thursday and here I am finally getting around to commenting on my weekend. There is no vlog from this, although that would have been interesting. Only a couple of photos and memories to share.

This past weekend, sort of my official last weekend of the summer as I have gone back to school and started this week, I went with a friend to be a camp counsellor at the camp she went to as a kid. The weekend was called Women’s weekend and it was for older women, most looked between 40 and 80, many of who had kids attending the camp in the summer or friends who did.

I have an addiction to notebooks and notecards and pens. There is a box under my bed of cute cards incase I ever need to send one. And a pile of mini colourful notebooks on my bookcase.

I know I have a problem.

Me and my City Blue

I started riding my bike to work the week before I went to Cuba. Like I rode one day, nearly died trying to get home, and then went to Cuba for a week.
