It’s Been Quiet…

Saturday, March 24th, 2007 by Ian

Yes, there hasn’t been much traffic on The Squid lately.  Personally, I’ve been alternately busy, or just bored and not feeling like it…sorry.  Anyway, I’ll give a brief run down of what’s been going on here:

  • I’ve been  trying to finish the bathroom.  There really isn’t much left but “finishing and painting, but now that it’s usable, the drive seems to have gone out of the project again.  Today, I’m patching drywall, last week I installed the glass shower doors, and the week before I installed a new vanity, counter and taps.  Hopefully I’ll be done in a couple week at the latest.
  • Dylan has a girlfriend now, so we hardly ever see him between work, snowboarding and “hanging out”.
  • Quinn had an exciting couple weeks.  First we did a bit of a panic job on a school science fair project, entitled “Aerodynamic Shapes”, then he was selected to take it to the Calgary Youth Science Fair, so we had to redo it properly!  It WAS kinda fun.  We built a rudimentery wind tunnel and measured how far objects got pushed by the wind.  And used that as a measure of the drag.  It worked out quite well and he ended up getting a bronze medal.
  • Shelley has quit her job at the clothing store.  She’s just tired of it and looking to get into something else, or taking a break for a little while — not really sure right now.

Also, since my stomach has been so nasty lately, I HAVE STOPPED EATING GLUTEN.  Which brings me to a question for you, Scott.  Are you avoiding GLUTEN or WHEAT?  There IS a difference.  Shelley has always tried to avoid gluten, so I’m just going to be joining her in that endevour.  So THERE!

Heeeelllloooo Out there

Joan Survives New Zealand

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007 by Scott

First – Happy Birthday Shelley. We tried to call a few times but you guys apparently went to Banff. Happy Birthday to YOU ….. we raised a glass of wine (or two) to you.

At the risk of jinxing it for the last day or two, Joan has survived New Zealand. We did try to kill her with warm sunny weather, good local olive oil and dukah, inumerable bottles of wine, hazel nut collecting, walks in the bush and endless driving to “oh and ah” at things. We’ve enjoyed having her and we send her back to the frozen north with an extra suitcase of goodies, a wee puku (tummy), a taste for yummy foods and a tan.

No doubt Joan will post a note of her travels and maybe a picture or two, what do you say Joan are you up to the challenge or are you going to let ME chose the photos???
