I couldn’t help myself! I just had to make this video of Phoenix when she was super young and she couldn’t control her limbs. Every time she did those moves I thought she was dancing. Ahhh this video still makes me laugh.
A true Brina project – I started this when she was 2 or 3 months old and I just finished it now. As you can tell it’s fully just thrown together with no proper editing skills but I’m sure Dwight will forgive me.
I chose the song Beat and the Pulse by Austra because she loves it. It puts her to sleep in seconds. It’s a magical little ditty.
So I fixed it.
If you have any photos that accidentally cut off the important bits and you would like a realistic rendering of the missing pieces, send it over and I’ll work my magic. I think this example will win you over.
April Wine, PDA, hangers, rock’n out, fatty steaks from Back Country Meats that burst our whole bbq into flames, races across the backyard and then early to bed = Fernival Weekend.
There’s still the Slope Soaker to come. I’m not sure we can handle all this goodness in one weekend.
Toby, Andre and Marni made it out for the free outdoor show too.
April Wine at Fernie Alpine Resort. The sun came out just as they started to play.
“Put it up to eleven!” says Phoenix.
“Get a room!” shouts the neighbours.
Poor thing. He was like this for a couple minutes, just starring at me as if he was saying “help. me.” So I take a picture.
I think we know what Phoenix is going to be when she’s older… Stay tuned.

We’ve been feeling a bit of this since moving into a City of Fernie neighbourhood with actual neighbours and not just being worried about bears watching me change into my flannel pjs.
But to the smallest degree. I mostly enjoy having people around – seeing them walk in front of our house, living their lives, having friends stop by to say “hi”. I feel more part of the community rather than a queen starring at all my little minions.
Leroy is even enjoying our new place with over 10 acres less to roam around (this may all be in my head). I believe this because we interact with him more – take him for walks or bike rides throughout the day, rather than just opening the door and letting him roam as he pleased. He did have a very important job in the old house: protecting us from bears, moose, deer, squirrels, crickets etc. But now he has a even bigger job – to bug us until we take him for a walk.
Anyways. Just letting you know we’re enjoying our new place, being around people and being able to walk everywhere without the thought of climbing a large steep hill on the way home. Life is good.
