before i could barely unpack from Christmas, i was packed and ready for my 4 day road trip.
i was not prepared. lol
we went from temperatures hovering around zero – to temperatures reaching -24. seriously. i couldn’t make that up if i tried.
that wasn’t the best part though – our first day on the road was in a kick ass blizzard. the kind that had me silently praying to god to see tomorrow
it was terrible.
we spent about 6 hours driving in those conditions – talk about white knuckling it!
and it was so much fun!!
is that wrong?
i posted a video of part of the drive on facebook – go on and take a look if you are my friend!
it was cold, i mean Nunavut cold – i didn’t pack accordingly – but i had the best time!!!!!
i ate. a hell of alot. i mean i could have won awards….i was bad – and it was oh so good!!!! look, you only live once…and i lived it UP!
look at a couple of my breakfasts!!!
we had an impromptu meet up with some really good friends – which was wonderful! the unexpected is always the best!!
i spent 50 bucks on a winter hat and mittens. i also scored a phone number. John – oh how i miss him. he gave me a discount on my items and another free pair of gloves lol
score for my ego!
so this was me prepared to head out doors: i love my monkey hat!
our last night there we went to a different hotel. i was wearing my hat, gloves, scarf and was still shaking. i think the lady felt sorry for me and we got a free room upgrade lol.
i guess i had wimpy tourist written all over me lol
i am exhausted. i am getting ready to pour myself a glass of wine and then head off to bed.
tomorrow is another crazy busy day. a big gathering with loved ones to celebrate the new year – and then later in the evening another gathering.
the love never ends. and the food won’t either!
i am so excited about 2012. i am not sure why. i haven’t felt this excited about a new year – in forever. i can only assume some wonderful, magical things are in the works for me.
i say bring it on.
i don’t make new years resolutions. i find they stress me out and put too much pressure on me.
i just plan on being the best bee i can be. to love and be loved. to be kind. to be generous. to give of myself what i expect others to give to me.
i just plan on being me.
all the best to all of you for 2012!! see you in the new year!
