It’s been an eventful week for me, the store was told on Saturday that it will be closing November 5th, I don’t know what this will mean for me yet, either a transfer to Vernon, 60km away or finding a new job in town. The transfer is unlikely to happen but if it does that’s a long drive especially in winter, however I’d keep my current salary and benefits.  If I get a new job that will mean a cut in pay as much as in half and possibly no benefits, but I’d get to stay in town, there are positive and negatives to both options but I won’t know for a week or two yet what I’ll be offered.
So that was Saturday, on Sunday I started my weeks holiday.  I took this week so I could be free to work at the fair.  Set up and judging went well, I run the fruit division.  I also entered the Game of Thrones bookmarks, Music and a couple photos. I won 2nd on the bookmarks and my pic of Helmcken falls
, so successful fair for me, Really happy about the photo, I put it in the hardest class to win as it’s for experience photographers and nature always has a lot of beautiful entries. I also got and honourable mention on the Lightening shot.
I did get some stitching done amongst all of that, Cindy’s one over one is slowly progressing
And I got my weeks block of Halloween finished by Tuesday this week

As for what I watched.
Critical Role 

Heroes -  S01 E01-05 This was on my Netflix watch list but I wasn’t planning on getting to it this soon, but they’ve been advertising the new series a lot lately so I thought I’d refresh my memory.

Love, Wedding, Marriage - A lovely little rom-com about a newlywed marriage counsellor who’s parents are separating 

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - This was a lot better than I expected, I’ve been a fan of Tom Clancy’s Ryan books since Hunt for Red October came out and it seems like they were completely ignoring that character and just using the name for this movie, and while, yes it was a bit more “James Bond”  than Ryan should be, it wasn’t as much as the trailers made it out to be. It was a good solid espionage thriller, I’ll have to get it to add to the collection

Airplane Vs. Volcano - Well that was stupid, but kind of fun at the same time.


  1. Great progress on your stitching and congrats on the fair prices! I'm sure you'll figure out the best way to handle your job situation soon :)

    1. Thanks, I'm so happy you two came up with that SAL, I'm loving stitching it.

  2. Hurrah for Fair! Hurrah for Cindy! Boo for bad, really bad movies ha ha!
