A Salty Adventure – August 16 to 22, 2014

A Salty Adventure – August 16 to 22, 2014
This week I went to Salt Lake City and Provo in Utah for a family vacation, and I had a really good time it was very hot, sometimes reaching all the way to 36°C (97°F). I shall now attempt to regale you with what I did on this vacation of mine.

Saturday August 16, 2014

On Saturday I had the chance to do some Parkour again after a multiple week lull in my Parkour practice, and see the people of Breathe Parkour one last time before I move to Edmonton, and it was a good practice day.
We started out the class a little bit early, and there were a couple new faces that I had never seen before, only one of them turned out being brand new, and it is good to see that Parkour is still growing.
We were split into groups based on our experience level so that the newer people could focus on the base skills, and the rest; Scott, Spencer and I; could focus on other skills. The skills that we started out with was Tacos, and then we moved on to wall runs. After the three of us had done this for a while and I had successfully done some proper muscle ups, we moved on to doing some basic bar stuff, involving just getting our swings on the bars working properly. The final thing that we all did was move up to the foam pit and work on whatever we wanted to work on. I personally did a side flip, and showed the new girl how to do back falls.
I spent the rest of the day packing.
That was my Saturday, onwards to Sunday.

Sunday August 17, 2014

On Sunday my mom, dad, and I traveled 12 hours to Salt Lake City, Utah. I watched movies and read on my way down, and that was my day, exciting right?
Oh yea, we also had Indian food for dinner at a restaurant named the Copper Bowl, and it was very good. Go check it out if you are ever in Salt Lake City.

Monday August 18, 2014

On Monday morning we went shopping to get my brother, who is on an LDS mission in Utah, some sweet stuff.
After that we went on a hike to a place called Cecret Canyon, yes that is spelt right. It was a pretty awesome hike and I saw a bunch of chipmunks, an interesting bird, some cool rocks, and a really big pond called Albion Basin that is part of Utah’s water supply. In fact here is a picture of the basin.



The final thing that we did that day as a family was go to an awesome Mexican restaurant called “Red Iguana 2” where I had a meal called the Mole Negro (Mole-eh), it was a mole made from chocolate, and it was delicious, sorry, no pictures for this.

Tuesday August 19, 2014

On Tuesday I went to see the Salt Lake City LDS Temple, it was a very beautiful temple and the grounds were very nice to see as well. My parents and I spent time walking around the grounds and looking at all of the different buildings and stuff that are there like the Lion House, the conference center, and the assembly hall. They are all very nice buildings and I enjoyed spending time with my mom and dad, and taking pictures of stuff.
That was my Tuesday, on to Wednesday.

Wednesday August 20, 2014

Today we went shopping at a mall called The Outlets at Traverse Mountain, it is a mall that has sweet sales at all times, so I got a lot of necessary clothes for school, and also some stuff that I just wanted.
We also went to Chuck-A-Rama for dinner. Chuck-A-Rama is an all you can eat buffet that has a lot of different kinds of food and it is a favorite of a lot of people down in Utah.

Thursday August 21, 2014

Thursday was a day full of walking and cousins.
We began the day out with a hike to a place called Bridal Veil Falls. It was a great hike where I saw different wildlife, trees, and creeping things.
The first thing that I saw on this hike was an old tram station for the tram that used to take you up the mountain to what was apparently a restaurant on top of the mountain, it isn’t there anymore because an avalanche took it out of business.



After this I proceeded to see many slugs, bugs, and snails. I even have a picture of me with a slug here.



We then proceeded to get to the falls while were quite nice to and there was this pool full of trout, and one albino trout.
We continued walking towards what we found out was a dam. The river behind the dam had become full of grass and weeds because the water was more stagnant, but the grass and weeds still flowed in the current, which was pretty cool.
On our way back to the car this older gentleman came up to us and started talking to us. He talked about the fish, and hidden treasure, and history, it was a little strange, but it was okay.
The next thing that we did was go and hang out with my cousin Michelle Ask if they are okay with their names being on the internet and her family. As I haven’t seen her in a number of years, it was nice to see her again. We all went to dinner, and I played with her kids for a little while to.
That ended my day, onwards to Friday.

Friday August 22, 2014

On Friday morning my parents and I went to the Manti City LDS temple, it was a beautiful temple and the time we spent there was wonderful. It was a hot day when we got out of the temple, and I was glad when I was able to change into a pair of shorts and a t-shirt.
In the afternoon we went shopping for my mom, she didn’t buy anything.
The last thing that I did was go and hand out with my cousin, her husband Wes and Wes’ sister Lillie, and play board games. We played Settlers of Catan as a group, and then Lillie and I played Jenga for a little while until I went back to my hotel.

The End

That was my week, very little Parkour was involved, but that is the way it goes sometimes.

Quote of the week

This quote is from Will Smith who has been in a lot of great movies over the years, some not so great, but oh well.
“Don’t chase people. Be yourself, do your own thing and work hard. The right people – the ones who really belong in your life – will come to you. And stay.”
Will Smith

I just really liked the sound of this one, and I think you can see why.
Well, that is all I have for now, later everyone, and remember “Happiness starts with a smile, smiles don’t start with happiness.”

Rafting the Bow - August 9 to 16, 2014

Sorry for the delayed update, I am working with minimal internet access right now.
This week was a busy week, and I had a good time with it, but let’s not waste time and get right to it.

Saturday August 9, 2014

On Saturday I went rafting in the Bow River with about 50 people, it was fun and I got plenty wet.
We started out our rafting trip at a place near the Golf Canada Calgary Centre and Lafarge, we all loaded up and got into the river. Now, because of the type of people that we all are it wasn’t long before people started getting pushed into the water, and then people began pulling other people from other rafts into the water, then I ended up on another raft after I pulled someone into the water from that raft and my raft got pulled down stream, and then other stuff happened and there were water wars, etc. So I got really wet, really tired, really hungry, didn’t get sunburned, had a great barbeque and corn bust, and had a great time, so I would call that a successful use of time.

Sunday August 10, 2014

On Sunday I went to church, and had a games night. At the games night we played ‘Do you love your neighbor’ and ‘Never have I ever’. We played these games for a long time and had great fun, you should all try these games out some time.

Monday August 11, 2014

On Monday morning I went for a bike ride through Fish Creek Park. As I was biking I saw this railing where I thought immediately upon seeing it, “I wonder if I could walk that” (picture below).




As you can see it is a very long railing, but one day I will walk it. Just for a point of reference, the lady in the distance is about 1.73 meters (5.67 feet) tall. If you are wondering what lady I am talking about I am talking about this lady.



After my bike ride I needed to go to mall because my glasses had gotten stepped on while I was rafting, so I went and did that and then I went around and did a bit of necessary shopping at different stores, but I won’t bore you with the details of my shopping escapades.
The final thing that I did on this fine day was go swimming at a lake. I was with a group of people, about 15 in all, and we spent our time taking pictures, which I do not have, doing flips into the water, meeting some of the new people that joined us and generally frolicking in the water, oh we also threw each other into the water a lot. One of the memorable ones from the night for me was when I went to throw this one girl into to the water and, not wanting to be thrown in, wrapped her arms around my waist. Upon her doing this I thought something along the lines of “Well, can’t throw her in now, better go in with her” and walked off the dock, everyone had a good laugh about that, and I am pretty sure that she bears me no ill will about me doing that.
Onwards to the Tuesday.

Tuesday August 12, 2014

On Tuesday I had some of my cousins come over and stay for the night. The girls, and my mother went to see the musical “Wicked”, while the boys, my dad and I went to watch X-Men Days of Future Past. It was very good, not as good as Guardians of the Galaxy, but it was very good. Hugh Jackman was great as Wolverine as usual, and I got to have some popcorn, Hooray!

Wednesday August 13, 2014

This was a day of furniture shopping, with my mom, because she knows more about furniture than I do. We went to Ikea and spent some time looking at futons, desks, tables and chairs for my new apartment, and found some items that I think will work for me which is good.
I also went for a good bike ride and came across a nice area to practice my balance and precisions. Here are some pictures of what I walked.





I spent a bit of time there just practicing, and worked up a sweat doing so, mainly because it was hot outside.

Thursday August 14, 2014

On Thursday I went to see Global Fest with Raeanne. Global Fest is an outdoor event that the world takes part in, there are vendors, and displays of different places around the world, and they end each night with a fireworks show.
In order to avoid the hassle of trying to find a parking spot we rode our bikes to the event. It was a nice bike ride, but unfortunately it started raining as we started out so we got kind of wet on the way there, oh well.
When we got there it was still raining, so we walked around the different vendors looking at what they had to show. Most of them weren’t selling anything, but the African booth was selling different wares such as hand carved goblets, and statues. Learned about a city in Mexico that would probably be really good to do Parkour in, the city is called Guanajuato, hopefully I will get the chance to go there some day.
The last thing that was done on this day was watching the fireworks. The fireworks on this night were put on by Japan, and they did an okay job, not the best, but it was okay.
On to the last day of the week.

Friday August 15, 2014

This was a day that I spent the better part of moving a sectional couch to my cousin’s house in Lethbridge, it was a good workout and my cousins made my dad, who was also helping with the move, and I a wonderful steak and corn dinner.

The End

Well, that was my week, sorry for the lack of Parkour, too much has been happening lately so I haven’t been able to do much of it.
Now for a quote

Quote of the week

This is a quote from Robin Williams as the character John Keating in the movie “Dead Poets Society”
“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.”

Well that is all I have for this week, hope you all enjoyed, let me know what you thought with a comment or an email, and I will see you all later.

Edmonton Trips – August 2 to 9, 2014

This week I actually didn’t do any parkour, but I did do a bunch of fun things so let’s get to it!
We shall start with Superior Saturday!

Saturday August 2, 2014

On Saturday I went to Edmonton with Raeanne, Louisa, their parents, and Louisa’s boyfriend. We went to Edmonton to go for a bunch of outdoor activities, and go see a laser show. It was nice and warm in Edmonton on Saturday so it was great weather for all of these outdoor activities.
We started the day with a picnic in Rundel Park. After driving for 4 hours it was nice to be able to get to out of the vehicle and walk around a little bit while eating some food.
After the picnic I waded in the river for a little while to cool myself down. The water was nice and warm, but it was filled with garbage consisting mainly of tires. It was pretty sad to see all of that garbage in the river, as I like walking around nature when it hasn’t been disturbed and/or ruined by people not caring at all about nature.
The next thing that we did was go on a short hike in Rundel Park, we ended up going across this big bridge that was really high above the river near the end of the hike, and because I am me I decided to spit into the water a little bit. I also got the chance to work on my balancing a little bit because there were some guard rails that were wide enough to walk on, and that was fun to do.
The next thing that we did was go to a different part of Rundel Park so that we could play some disc golf. Unfortunately there was a tournament going on when we got there so we were unable to play any disc golf, oh well. We were also told that there was supposed to be a place to go swimming, but the place ended up being an indoor pool that you had to pay to get into, so we just went swimming in the river which was warm!
After some frolicking in the river Raeanne and I went to play in the parks, I personally think that you can never be too old to play in the park, and then took a nap on a park bench, well she slept curled up on the bench, I just sat and rested.
The second last thing that we all did in Edmonton was go to The Old Spaghetti Factory there in Edmonton for dinner. The restaurant is in the downtown area of Edmonton so naturally there was some construction going on giving me the chance to do some more practice for Parkour. This time I was able to practice some lache’s on some scaffolding that was set up near the restaurant. It was fun and some people were very impressed by it which made me happy because I love hearing that I have a talent which people can enjoy watching.
For dinner I had some chicken pastas, it is a pasta place after all. The food was good and the d├ęcor was very impressive and gave off a nice rustic feel, pretty sure that rustic is the right word.
Here are some pictures from the dinner.


This is Raeanne and I.


This is Louisa and her boyfriend, Reg.


And this is Pictureception, thumbs up for a meme, OH YEA!
After dinner we all went to the Telus Science Center to see a Pink Floyd laser show, but before that we went and looked around the Science Center, okay everyone else went and looked around. I was mostly enraptured by the machine that was outside. Here is a picture.


For all of the pictures see my Facebook page here.
After that we had enjoyed the laser show, we all piled into the van and went home, I slept for about an hour on the way back, and then didn’t sleep when I drove myself home, which is a really good thing.
That was Saturday, on to Lord Sunday!

Sunday August 3, 2014

Sunday was a pretty basic day, I went to church, ate food, and watched TV.
On to Mister Monday.

Monday August 4, 2014

Today was a sunny and warm day, and because it was so nice out I went to the Calgary Slack Lining meet up that happened. There was about 20 people at the get together, Raeanne and I included.
Before I got to the event I went to a friend’s house to fill up 100 water balloons for the meet up. It took a while a long while, and I had about 20 pop on me yea.
So anyway, on to the meet up!
I got to the meet up a little after it started and when I got there everyone already had everything set up, so we got right to slack lining! As this was my first time trying slack lining I wasn’t very good, but I had a very good time trying it out. We also had a series water fight and a played a lot of Frisbee throughout the day.
That was pretty much all I did that day.
On to Grim Tuesday.

Tuesday August 5, 2014

Tuesday wasn’t grim, just the opposite in fact, it was a very good and productive day. Just in case you haven’t been clicking on the links I have been providing, each of the things that I am calling the days of the week by is actually the title of one of the books in a series called ‘The Keys to the Kingdom’, I enjoyed this series, and would recommend it as a book series that you could enjoy when you are in the mood for an easy read.
So I said that Tuesday was a good and productive day, here’s why.
I got a fair bit of necessary shopping done, it was nice to clear that off my list, I won’t bore you with the details of my shopping escapades.
The fun thing that I did on Tuesday was go watch The Guardians of the Galaxy. Allow me to paint a visual in your mind so that you understand how awesome it was. Imagine Chuck Norris riding a T–Rex wearing sunglasses and has Gatling guns mounted on his sides surfs a wave of magma. Now multiple that by 10, there you go, that's how awesome it was.
Now on to Drowned Wednesday!

Wednesday August 6, 2014

On Wednesday I went to a family get-together in Waterton where we went on a hike to Bertha Falls. We started the day out by playing in Waterton Lake, a lake that is quite young because it isn't a sand lake yet, so there were lots of rocks to skip while there. I went into the water after a while and even though it was at least 25°C (77°F), the water felt like it was only 5°C (41°F), so it was really cold. After much frolicking in the water, mostly on the part of my second cousins, we went for the hike. As it was a simple hike I carried one of my cousins on my shoulders for half of the hike.
That as my Wednesday next one in the lineup is Sir Thursday.

Thursday August 7, 2014

Unfortunately I did not get knighted on Thursday, so I am not a Sir, yet, but maybe that will happen one day. What did happen on Thursday was I went to a restaurant for breakfast, spent a long time packing for my moving trip to Edmonton on Friday and hung out with a friend named Liva for the afternoon.
The restaurant that we went to is called Pfanntastic Pannenkoek Haus, you might have seen it on this episode of ‘You Gotta Eat Here’. It is a Dutch pancake place that serves the most delicious “pancakes” you have ever had. I put quotes around pancakes because they aren’t what you are used to having when you have a pancake, unless you live in the Netherlands that is. I had a De Bosrand pannenkoek, which had ham, eggs, mushrooms and cheese on it so it was absolutely delicious.
Packing was packing.
Liva and I went for a walk and talked, it was a good time and I took some pictures. You can see them all here on my Facebook page.
On to the Lady Friday.

Friday August 8, 2014

On Friday I went to Edmonton to sign the lease to my apartment and move a whole bunch of stuff into my room. I spent 3 hours driving there 15 minutes of which were in a serious downpour that made me very nervous to be driving because of how hard it was to see. When I got to Edmonton I spent two hours moving in the stuff I had brought and cleaning the apartment, with some help from a friend who came to keep me company. After we had finished putting everything away and cleaning the dirty apartment, we went to A&W for dinner and had some greasy burgers. After that we came back to Calgary, and I went to a dance that was happening out near Red Deer River Meats, way out in the boonies South West of Calgary. The place had a giant swing set that you could get some serious height on and I spent some time pushing some people on the swings and pushing myself on the swings to. Overall it was a very good day, very late, but still very good.

The End

That was my week, I hope that you enjoyed reading about it, and as always, if you have any questions send me an email using the form on the right and leave a comment, but before we officially finish I will leave you with a quote.

Quote of the Week

This quote is about reading because there is nothing better than a good book that takes you away.
“There’s no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books”
      – James Patterson
Found here.
I feel that this applies to people of all ages, not just children, so go out there and find the kind of books that you love to read, because there is something for everyone.
That is the end of this post everyone, talk to you all later, or maybe it will be sooner.

The Gravel Pit – July 26 to August 1, 2014

Intro… Hello everyone! So I am actually starting to write this article early in the week so that I can hope to meet the deadline of a Friday release that I had previously established for myself.
So this week I had a good time, and enjoyed my time doing the many different things that I did. So onto what I did this week.

Saturday July 26, 2014

Parkour
So I started out my Saturday by going to my normal 11:30 Parkour class at BreathePK. When I got there I found out that Sylvia, someone whom I had practiced with at No Limits AFC. It was good to be able to catch up with her after a long time of having minimal contact. It was quite a big class this time as well, I think that there were about 14 people there which was AWESOME! Of the people there I only knew seven of them, but that isn’t too bad considering that three of the people there were new. I did get the chance to talk to one of the new people and found out his name, and a bit of his life story.
Brodie, the teacher of this class, started us off with a basic jumping jack warm up because of the large number of people that we had in the class, and then moved us on to a good series of stretches. After we had finished those we were ready to begin training.
Training was a little bit different this time than it has been in previous times as Brodie was trying something new with the class. This new thing was instead of splitting everyone up by their level, he provided a skill from each of the first three levels for everyone to practice and then let us choose what we wanted to practice, and then give us some more skills to work on later in the class let us choose again, and then repeat the process once more. Overall I think that it worked really well, and the rest of the class thought it was really good. (See this link if you don't know what the leveling system at BreathePK is.)
Throughout the day I worked on a good number of skills that I need to gain more experience in because I am just not that good at some of them. The skills that I worked on were my cranes, box jumps, wall runs, dive rolls, kongs, and hurdle jumps. Box jumps are nothing more than practicing jumping onto a box. What’s that? It sounds really lame?! Well, it is something you do to get better at jumping onto things and getting better at dashes, so they are so not lame. A hurdle jump is a basically a double step that you can use in numerous applications such as wall runs and some of the vaults we do.
While our class was going on there was also a break dancing class going on, so it was quite interesting to see some of them doing some of the things that they can do because many of them are very good.
A funny moment from the class was when I threw my shoe to Brodie and he pretended it was a football and he ran "the whole nine yards" through the gym with it. It was quite awesome, and provided a good memory.
Game Time
Later on in the day I went to a friend’s house to hang out and play games, which is an awesome thing to do in your free time!!! That is if you have free time, I don’t like not having free time.
So the first thing that we did that night was play a game called Pandemic, and own the game, which was awesome because apparently it can be hard to win this game, but we totally won, so TAKE THAT PANDEMIC!!!
The next thing that we did was play Nintendoland, which was a great game. We all took turns playing as the character who used the WiiU and had a blast playing until 10:00 at night.
So that was my Saturday, pretty awesome huh? I even got a picture of the people that I know from Parkour.

Sunday July 27, 2014

On Sunday I went to church as I usually do, and I hosted a dinner for people with a friend as I usually don’t do. My friend ended up doing most of the cooking and so we ended up having homemade pizza and Tex Mex salad, which were both superb. We had a group of 6 people show up so it was a great time full of riveting conversation, and funny stories.
That was my Sunday, now onto Monday.

Monday July 28, 2014

So on the last Monday of the month of July I had the chance and downright pleasure of playing twister. Outside. With slime used for the colored circles. It was both gross and awesome! We played two games of twister, had an awesome time and got slime all over us, because we kept pushing each other into the slime, and the organizer dumped the remaining slime onto us while we were playing. It was great disgusting fun that required a shower once I got home, but I had a blast.
Tuesday was a hot day, a very hot day, the temperature peaked in Calgary at about 32°C (90°F), and I don’t care where you are from, but that’s hot. My last day of employment is quickly approaching, and Tuesday was my third last day before the contract that I have with ABB Inc. is done. It is interesting having the feelings that I do about leaving the company after 14 months of employment in order to go to school. I am excited because I am able to take a break and then start up school again, but I am also nervous because I am starting school again and I want to do well. I am also completely moving away from home for the first time ever, which also makes me nervous. I know that it will be okay, and that I will do well at school as long as I work hard, but it still makes me nervous.
Middle of the day meal
Okay, I am done reflecting, on to what I did on Tuesday.
On Tuesday I went to lunch with a co-worker at a place called Rocky’s Burgers, it is a small standalone restaurant that is located at the Crossroads Farmers Market in Calgary and it is a place that makes AWESOME burgers. This co-worker of mine is from China, and, according to what she told me, the only reference to western food that they have in China is KFC, McDonalds, and one other restaurant that serves terrible examples of what kind of food we eat in the west, so having a burger from Rocky’s Burgers provided a great stand point for just how good Western food can be. The meat was moist, the bun was soft, the fries were fresh and all the food was hot off the grill, so it was a delicious meal.
After work Adventures
Once I finished work it was time for some Parkour, because it was Tuesday, and Tuesday is Parkour day. This day of Parkour was a little different than my usual Tuesday Parkour, because this time I went downtown for a Jam, a Jam is what a get together where you do Parkour is called. We started in a place called Century Gardens (see this link for the Google Maps location) and worked on some jumps and rolls before we went to two other places near the Telus Science Center.
The first place that we went to after Century Gardens is a place that we nicknamed “Josh’s favorite spot aka The Gravel Pit” because there are two gravel pits (see this link for the place in Google Maps). It was a great place for practicing things like Dive Kongs, and Kong where you “dive-jump” to get to the obstacle, other vaults, flips, and jumps. We spent about an hour there I think, so it was a good place to stop.
The second place that we went to was called the Lego blocks. Now unfortunately the area isn’t shown yet in Google Maps because it is still pretty new, but I will try to get a picture to show all of you, but you can still view the area at this link because it will show you where it is. This place was good for practicing strides, precisions, plyos, and bar-to-pre’s. Not quite as good as The Gravel Pit, but still a good area.
It was a hot Tuesday, but it was a good Tuesday, and I had an awesome time in downtown Calgary.

Wednesday July 30, 2014

Wednesday was another hot day, this heat seems to be a thing that isn’t going away and hopefully winter, or at least fall, returns soon. I only ended up doing a few things on Wednesday because that was just the way the day played out.
The first thing that I did was go to my second last day of work and have a bunch of people ask me what I am going to be doing in the month before I go to school, and telling me congratulations to me for getting into school. I also didn’t have any work to do, but that is what happens when you are this close to being done at your job.
For lunch a group of the people that I know from work and I went out for lunch to a Brazilian Barbeque or Churrasco place called Gaucho here in Calgary. We had a great time and had a wonderful lunch of Rump Steak, Garlic Top Sirloin, Pork Loin, Sausage, Chicken Wings, and Parmigiano Beef, and no, I didn’t remember all of those off the top of my head, I pulled the list off of their menu.
The next things that I did that day was go to a religion class that I usually have on Wednesday nights and learned about some stuff there that was on the subject of following up on things. This is something that applies to many different things, in religion, all working fields, family, school, etc so it was good to learn about the subject a little bit so that I can try to improve in that area.

Thursday July 31, 2014

Today was my last day of work at ABB and now I have a month to do stuff so that I will be ready for my move to Edmonton in the last week of August. Either that or I can do stuff like go to Drumheller, and Jasper, WOOOOOOOO!!!
My last day of work began really early as I wanted to go and ride the bike at work one last time. It was a good ride of the bike, and I was awake for the whole day because of it. For lunch I went out for lunch with my boss, father, and one other coworker. We went to a restaurant named Los Mariachis for a Mexican lunch, and had a very good lunch there. I have been to this place a few times and have enjoyed it each time. I really like the dish called El Cuatro and I would highly encourage trying this place out some time.
After work I went to MEC to do some awesome shopping, by awesome shopping I mean that I bought a pair of pants and an exercise shirt.
On to the final day of this post, the illustrious Friday.

Friday August 1, 2014

Today I didn’t do all that much but I did do some good things, and got some stuff done.
The first thing that I did sleep in, Hooray!
The second thing that I did was go for a sweet bike ride through Fish Creek Park down to the substation that is in between the two communities Douglasdale and Diamond Cove. It was pretty good, and I took some pictures of stuff like rocks. You can see the pictures on my Facebook page.
The third thing that I did was go to the Calgary Alberta Temple and spend about two hours there. Had a good time, and the inside has AC so it wasn’t hot, which was great.
The fourth thing that I did was get a little bit more shopping done. I went and bought some water balloons, and also some sweat pants for when winter rolls around.
After that I went home and finished writing my blog post for this week.

The End

Well, that was my week, let me know what you though. Let me know what you thought about my writing, let me know what you did this week. I love to read comments and I look forward to hearing from you.
Now for a quote!
