First Aid Kit - Our Own Pretty Ways


My new favourite band. Two girls from Sweden I believe. They sound so beautiful together, they are sisters and very young! So talented. I learned some of their songs on guitar, pretty easy chord progressions which is nice. I sat around home this evening learning songs by "The Tallest Man on Earth" as well, it was pleasant ;)

cha-nged.

It's summertime so that means, getting out! Enjoying the sun! Playing! Swimming! It's nice, but sometimes it's too hot, these last few days and last week it was TOO hot. I shouldn't complain but I like a 'happy medium' when it comes to weather that's why I like spring and autumn so much. You don't appreciate those two seasons since they seem to go by so quickly. Lots of people around are trying to loose weight. I'm not trying to loose weight but I need to start getting more active, I've been pretty lazy. It is hard when the sun sucks all your energy. I'm not one of women who would try and find diet pill that works. It's not really my thing. I do get really happy and proud of people and friends who accomplish their health goals, it makes me happy :)

July july ju-l-yyyy

Every time I hear the word "July" I think of The Decemberist's song and it makes me happy. Boy, was it warm today. I made sure I wore sunscreen! I was sore all day though because when I was at the house last night doing just a smidgen of work I must have pulled a muscle in my shoulder and now it hurts to move it and it's just so sore to turn my head. ugh! I was very sore this morning when I woke up so I'm not looking forward to sleeping this evening.

I've been trying my hardest to save up some moola since I only have two weeks of work left which is pretty insane! I'm excited about my new and up-coming projects but nervous about everything at the same time. I really don't want to get myself into using my credit card a lot or using cash advances, so here's hoping (and praying) things turn out the way I hope!

to stress or not to stress?

I have a lot of changes coming up! I feel like I should be stressed but I’m not really. The only thing I’m really stressed about is my trip to Kenya. The house, job, everything around moving… not that stressful! I HATE moving, and am not looking forward to that at all but I’m not really stressed about. It’s great that Troy has a truck or maybe I wouldn’t be as calm. I would hate to hire a mover and have to deal with all of that. It would be awful. I have 2 weeks of work left which is crazy after being there for four years! It’s been great and I’m going to miss everyone but having my own house, space, land, is going to be so nice and relaxing! I’m looking forward to that for sure!

Happy Canada Day everyone!!

Troy and I sold cotton candy in Kentville to raise money for my trip to Kenya!!! We were very busy and sold lots to some (now very hyper I'm sure) children! Tonight we are going to see the free "The Trews" concert. They are a pretty good band and should be very good to see. The last two years Joel Plaskett played and he was awesome so lets hope they are just as good! The fireworks aren't always that great, but lets hope!
