Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day Celebrations in Fernie in 2010

150. Wowzers. Not bad, Canada. And I’m not even seeing any grey.

We saw a calf (moose) on the way back from Maiden Lake, after attending the cardboard boat race, and we spotted lots and lots of red shirts and flags. We then pushed our bikes to the Fernie Aquatic Centre where a large crowd had gathered for the festivities. It was hot, we had ice cream, the kids toured the grounds on a “train” and cherries were consumed. That’s pretty much all I can handle for Canada Day. My cup is overflowing. My daughter is hugging her $5 plastic unicorn and my son is naked on the couch cooling down. Amazing! I love this city and I love this country. We still have a bbq with friends, fireworks and some ciders on the To-Do list for today. If only every day could be Canada Day.

Confessions Of A Lazy Person : Not Biking In Whitefish


Nine of us traveled to Whitefish for a biking bachelorette weekend this past weekend and I was the only one who didn’t bike. It wasn’t a hard decision for me as I still have no feeling in most of my foot and if I do too much my leg gets super achy and I’m just a little tired of achy. So I stayed back and did some swimming and hot tubbing and a bit of walking, which was really good because I’m supposed to be walking on an incline, good for the stiffness, and I haven’t been.

I’m okay with being the oddball in a group. I’m getting good at being that person. I like that everyone has accepted this part of me. I had no grief for it, although I had a great excuse, but I feel as though if I had not broken my leg this wonderful group of bike crazy women would have been very cool with me not participating (to my face). I love that.

Fernie Artography Opens

An art exhibit showing off Fernie’s great landscapes is opening at Fernie Museum this Thursday, June 15th. I happen to have a painting included. Neat! 7 pm opening!

“How wanderlust and resident artists contribute to our understanding of Fernie’s natural, social, cultural and built landscapes is the subject of Fernie Artography. The exhibit draws on a wealth of artistic material ranging from the historical works of David Paton and Group of Seven artist A.Y. Jackson to works by contemporary visual artists, photographers and video artists practicing in the Elk Valley today.

Wine and cheese reception; cash bar.

Part of the Canada 150 Cultural Series presented by the Fernie Arts Station and the Fernie Museum.”
