The video above is of my level one class. Each class was required to do a Christmas video this year for the holidays. I am in the video but tried to hide in the background! I prefer being behind the camera rather than in front!

I found myself at Red Robin last night with my family. They offer a free hamburger on your birthday. The menu claimed that the bacon cheeseburger was the best in the world. I have to say, it was one of the yummiest burgers I've had to date. After came a sundae along with their staff singing us a quick birthday tune! It was great fun! Thanks to Spring for the idea!

It's dropped down to 7°C today and it's chilly, even in the house! I am considering going out for a jog but curling up under the covers with my book sounds much more enjoyable. Brrrr!

The shock of cold Canada seems to be wearing off. It's been about 10°C the past few days which isn't terrible. It's so nice to finally catch up with family and friends after all these years.

Vancouver has made many changes with the upcoming 2010 Olympics. Upon my arrival, I was able to take the Canada Line from the airport into the downtown core. Very convenient!

It snowed my second night in town which was cool to see. I'm sure it's been seven years or so since I've seen snow. It was quite exciting.

Time is cruising past ... surprise, surprise! I now find myself in Victoria. This week will be full of activities starting with my bro's birthday, followed by mine and then Christmas.

I did spend some time wrapping gifts tonight with my mom which has really put me in the Christmas spirit!

I'm not sure it's going to be a white Christmas but it's certainly going to be special!

Friday December 4th, 2009 ...

Last night dropped down to 14℃. The chilly ride home left me thinking about how I am going to deal with the temperatures I am about to face. Buying warmer clothes has been on my list of things to do for some time now. As shopping is one of my least favorite things to do, it still remains there.

Time has been speeding by and it seems I hardly have any for myself these days. I did make it to the salon this morning and am now a redhead. It's a nice change but I do have to admit, I miss the shaved head. I'm still not used to seeing myself with this much hair.

I am so looking forward to having three weeks off. I've been at it pretty hard since India which is coming on a year ago. It's hard to believe. I suppose I've not done too badly in the sense of holidays over the past year. Eight months on, four months off.

With brother J getting married next year in Las Vegas, not sure how that trend will work for 2010. That just means I'll have to aim higher for 2011. Seven months on, five months off. I like the sounds of that already ...
