My Billy is a mean little beast too.Never ever turn your back on him. EVER yet he will walk on a leash and come when you call him like a good dog. Strange critter. He is food motivated so I an get him to do anything for a little grain.

I got in a 40 minute walk this morning ,now have to make breakfast .It is our day off we are going to go out for a motorcycle ride. That hurts my knees too.Sitting on the back locks them up.I also want to be like your friend never stopping my Mom is 84 an I have trouble keeping up with her some days she has been an amazing inspiration to my
Have a great day emoticon

Good morning, we never raised goats our selves but growing up we had a neighbor that had goats, never forget we boys had a little shack out back that was our club house and went on one morning to find out he made it his goat shed, kind of missed up the club house. That ole billy was a lil mean.

I got a good bike ride in this morning, got 12 miles in early. I used to have a riding buddy that biking hurt his knees, we used to do mountain biking, we use to run to, but now that hurts his knees. I hope to keep it up as long as possible.

I have another walking buddy that is 80 years old and his walking pace is fast, he also swims,( me is not a swimmer), he travels the world. I hope to be able to keep up like that when I hit 80, which is still several years off.

Have a great day

My coop cleaning job is a lot easier these days. Ugh cows a re the worst! I had more goats,mini donkeys and a lot more poultry. I have been cutting down on live stock because of all the trouble I have had with my back and neck. I find things much more manageable now. I would still like to rehome my BIlly . He would be much happier is he was able to hang out with the girls but I have given up all breeding.

Windy your bike ride sounds nice. I have never been one with the bike. It kills my knees.I see people here riding up and down the mountains on the highway. I have zero idea how they manage. I am glad you got your bike back.

Marty I love to travel but I also love to come home. LOL I have dog pooh too.

Home sweet home..
Most of the smoke on Sunday was from the Washington fires, although our own BC fires were not helping matters either.

Cleaning the chicken coop.. Yea.. The good old days when I had chickens now I just have to scoop up Dalhouise's ..... When I take him walking.

I remember as a kid the chicken coops and the goat coops, think the goat was the worst. Also remember granddaddy having us cleaning out the cattle stalls. Miss those days.

Back on the bike, did a 20 minute ride yesterday afternoon just to check the bike out, then this morning, did my coffee ride, rode 8 miles, it was on my coffee ride when my bike tore up so felt like I should start with my coffee ride, (where toward the end of my ride, I head to the local coffee shop with my bike mug and fill it up and ride back).

Everything seems to be alright with bike. Just could tell it had been a little while since I have been on my bike, about 2 months, so the hills were a little tough but rode them, no walking bike up the hills. A cool 50 degrees this morning on my ride.

Did have to stop at a friends because I had a pedal gear start to make a noise and I did not have my oil can with me and failed to grease my bike up before the ride, he didn't have anything but vegetable oil and that worked till I can get some silicone.

Windy Yippie for a new tire :) Hope you get a ride in :)

Marty your trip sounds fun. Bummer about the smoke. Is it from the fires in Washington or do you have your own trouble going on up there.

Today I am cleaning the chicken coop was hoping to get the goat coop done too. HOWEVER I tried to walk first while it was still cool and my neighbor nabbed me and gabbed for 30 minutes .I just can in to sit for a minute and get a drink. I have a few more things to do in the garden before I am done. It is already 97* out there :/
Hoping to go camping tomorrow afternoon . :)

I'm on my way back...
Saturday morning left the camp gates at 7 am. Did a couple of things in Squamish, and was driving out of Squamish at 8am. Arrived at our hotel 2:30 and was able to check in. Rested a bit them rode our bikes to a postcard Facebook meetup at the down town library. Later went to the restaurant that the owner of the camp gave us an appreciation gift certificate too ( casual fine dining) the food was good, but I ate before going because I just knew it would be tiny portions - I know - I know we are on a journey to loose weight.. But I was starving...
Sunday was very thick with smoke, resulting in the hotel pool being closed, walked the suspension bridges for half price because the views were hidden, but enjoyed it nevertheless and would go back. Saved a bunch of money by driving around and doing our own vineyard and orchard tour. Stopped and took many pictures of this but still no views - Noni didn't even see the lake we drove along side of.. But I knew it was there out of sight... Unfortunate no swimming in the lake.
Stopped off at a place that sold fresh goat cheese and Homemade ice cream from goats milk. Came out a little lighter in the wallet.
Monday the skies looked a little clearer so we did a 24k bike ride on the old kettle railway line paths - the smoke has lifted and it was an awesome ride. We stopped and had a picnic from the food I had brought along with us.
Did some shopping along the route Noni found some baking things that she was excited about and I bought postcards. Stopping at the fruit stands and buy fresh fruit.. So yummy.
We seen a few birds, a bear, deer... I don't think anything else.
Stopped a motel last night instead of driving straight home.. I was getting so tired and the car GPS was estimating arrival mid night - no I want to arrive home alive and not exhausted.

Not all was accomplished that I was hoping.. But it was successful in what we did do. Just not enough time in a long weekend getaway. But we are rested, too well fed, and it is good to stay in bed just a little longer and cuddle.
Home this afternoon if all goes as planned without any hiccups ...

It is overcast here this morning. I walked for 30 mins after work. . I started adding arm movements about a week ago. trying to tone up my arms. Today I added some light weights to the procedure. I am sure I will be angry with myself for that later on LOL.I have to be really careful with with I do so I do not mess up my neck. So I am just going to do it really slow. I will ask my PT guy about it later too.
OKay my floor is dru so best I get my butt in gear to get to my appointment :)

Windy hope you enjoyed your weekend.
Today we went for a long walk had a lazy breakfast and then went up to the mountains to take the dogs for a hike .We then became extremely lazy and hung out in lounge chairs reading and soaking up the cool mountain breeze . It was 75* up there and 97* down here .It was awesome. Back to work with me in the morning emoticon

It is sunny and hot here in New Mexico today. My feeders are active . They will get busier when it cools down. It is 100* out there already. They humming birds do not seem to mind. I picked them up another 5 pounds of sugar today.
I worked this morning then ran errands. I have the next two days off SCORE!!!!
I will try to walk more after it cools down. I have been trying to get in 5 miles a day . I do not always make that goal LOL today I went shopping right after work so missed my second morning walk.
Have a great day :)

That sounds wonderful. I need to go out and fill my black oil feeders now the natives are getting restless. I forgot to do it yesterday. This morning when I got home from work I walked and cut some brush.Seems like only the hummingbirds are over joyed.There are so many of them at the feeders these days. emoticon

Good morning, while having my coffee this morning on the patio, I watch two doves land near me, listening to them cooing away, then next thing I know one of them is on my table in front of me, he or she just set there for a minute looking around then flew away.

Walked this morning in a light mist, refreshing though.

Good morning, new to the team. When I walk or bike, it is usually early a.m. and I love to hear the birds wake the day up. So this morning as I was walking, I thought about looking for a team for bird watching and nature, this looks like a great team, love the pictures.

Today is a camp change over day.. 110 campers left after breakfast - I fed 70 for lunch.. And then took off to town to visit Mom and check on mail at the condo. I must get back to cook supper for the 70 and then tomorrow lunch we have 185 once more for the week. Then after this the numbers drop for the last two weeks - I will get a week off - then the fall program begins and slowly I will get my life back. I will be feeding smaller group sizes, and most weekends off.. I can't wait! But this Camp Life is my career and I can't complain with being off for six months can I!

Glad you are getting a small break Marty. Cooking and planning are hard hot work for sure.
Ugh we have spent so much money on cars this year. You need to have your car running though. We have had 3 flat tires this year. The one tire was replaced because we had the road hazard plan on it. The other Jimmy just plugged but the spare was toast. The truck had a broken timing belt :/ Thankful it was replace able and still runs fine. And my PT cruiser had the timing belt water pump and a few other things just replaced as maintenance OUCH Luckily Jimmy does a lot of the work himself.
Thank you for the lovely post card. I must say BC is gorgeous. Every time we are watching a show and look to see where it is filmed because we love the scenery it is BC. The film industry there mus t be pretty big.
Here in NM it has been very hot and muggy. The rain we were getting in the desert seems to have left us for the mountains. The garden is doing so well I have been spending lots of time in the kitchen putting stuff up for the winter . That is always a good thing.
Hope your new help works out . Hug Kind D for me . He is a smart pup sitting in front of the AC ;)

I am having a slight break.. Fed 130 hungry campers this morning and prepared 100 bag lunches. And then I drove to town and dropped the car off at the garage. On mom's birthday we took her a birthday cake in the afternoon and I got a flat tire. The tire is ruined.. I have all wheel drive and so I now must replace all four tires - two for sure - but all four because they are getting worn. While there at the garage doing a semi annual service and inspection.. Garage just called need something called a rotor and pads... Something is metal on metal and I'm told it needs to be repaired now..
Go ahead.. But I need the car back by 3:30 as I must return to work and cook supper. Today is BBQ day..
Delivery Truck is late .. It has been coming around 7 am .. Today I leave at 9:30 and no truck but I gave clear instructions to the new postion created this week to my dishwasher now front of house facilitator.
This position. Is a buffer between me and dishwashers - we are hiring one more person and having a rotating staff helper .. This facilitator will also be trained to serve some meals so I can have a break - ie - an afternoon and supper off occasionally - this is good if we have the right person.. Right now we do. A young 26 year old who is mature and responsible - and the owner after talking with me has made this transition .. And offered her a job next year if she wants to come back. Let's see how it works out..

Dalhouise likes air conditioners - he sits in front of our new one when we are at the condo.. And now in the car he get in between the seats and let's the cool air blow on him while driving with us. King Dalhouise is no fool of a dog.

So now I wait at home for the phone call telling me my car is ready and my visa is going to cry.

I hope you get some relief I hate that hot sticky feeling. Glad you found the AC . I do not think I could live here with out it. . We have been getting a lot of rain which is terrific but it makes humidity . not used to that in the desert. I sweat something awful when I am working in the yard.
Enjoy your days off Sounds like you have really earned them :)

Two hundred hungry campers everyday for the last two weeks... I'm exhausted. It has been extremely hot. The thermometer read 36 / 40 c everyday as well. At least I have been drinking lots of water.
At night there has been no relief.. Hot and sticky. My wife even has allowed me to have a fan.. She hates fans - says they make her sick. I shower .. A few moments later I am just as sweaty as I was before the shower.. So my point is.. My sleeps have been restles, waking up uncomfortable and tired.
But today and tomorrow I am off.. Time to recharge - to get some needed recuperation.
So off to Vancouver we drive.. Stuck - dead stop both lanes of traffic as emergency crews deal with an accident. I hope no one dies.. But it seems very serious. 45 minutes late we are on our way.. At least it was overcast and 20 c as we sat on the highway waiting for the road to open.
We are heading to Vancouver to buy an air conditioner if we can find any. We do a couple of stops in large stores to be told they don't have any left.. Not looking good for success ..
We go to Costco - my membership has expired over a year ago - we are hopeful they might have an air conditioner - nope - but I did renew my membership and get a new credit card. And a hotdog.
Ok onto the mall. Final stop with not really much hope of finding an conditioner - surprise - surprise - we go into Sears and they have just received a shipment of them. We buy one..
Service sucked - but I have it and now I'm just waiting to turn it on.
( it was laid down in my car to get it home so we have to,wait three hours before I plug it in and turn it on.). It better work....
Oh we came home - sat it up,right - went out to eat supper..
Now I'm writing and resting..

UGH poison ivy is the pits :/ When I lived in NJ I used to take a homeopathic remedy called Rhus Tox. You can buy it in a health food store. It won't prevent catching it but it does lessen the duration of the rash. I took it every day .My grandad you brown soap to wash with. He claimed that helped prevent it .
Hope you feel better soon. emoticon

That is too hot...

So it begins .. Again.. Summer camp is about to start on Saturday and we have 200 registered.
20 will be leaving two days later to go on a canoe trip leaving me 180 to feed three meals every day. This is a large enough number to cause stress.. Where and the world am I going to store all this food.
Right now at 6:30 AM I am expecting the delivery truck. Over 8000$ in supplies are on their way. And this is most for four days, with a little carry over. I will be going to a three day delivery, more stress as I have to stay on top of inventory and cooking all this food / storage, and reordering. Yes I do it all my self ...
200 people wow... 180 people for days on end.. Spring groups usually only have 180 for a day or two at the most and then they leave and the next group is small so we can bounce back. Now there is no bouncing back just. More and more mouths to feed.. Food to order, food to store, food to cook...

It isn't even cooler when the sun goes down here until way into the night. The early morning is cool enough to do things but by 8am-9am it starts getting hot again. When will it ever be cooler again.

Sorry to hear about your kitten, :( It has been terribly hot here too like walking into an oven. Thankfully I get done with work early and it is still in the low 80's when I get home so I can squeeze in an hour of yard work. Then I am forced inside until the sun goes down,they were joking on the weather report last night and said relief was on the way ,It would only be in the low 90's on Friday
Good Luck on your test .

Sorry I haven't been on for a while but have been studying like a mad man. Have finished my course in Medical Billing and Coding and now I have 2 certification exams and 1 proficiency test to go. We have been in a heat wave for so long and the heat nearly takes your breath away. I don't go out unless I have to. It has been in the upper 90s to the low 100s. I have lost my cat that I raised on a bottle when he was a kitten (Baby) to the heat and I was not a happy camper. Now I just have to study for these tests and so wish me luck.

21 days of work with no day off.. I am so ready for this weekend. But first I need to get through today. 85 people here for breakfast and lunch and 250 for a BBQ supper.
I hope to go to a movie, maybe find a geo cache or two, possibility of going to a bird sanctuary, and of course my wife wants to go to a mall to do some shopping.
Oh - my mother has been complaining so I must go visit her as well..
These are my weekend plans.
I hope you all are about to enjoy your weekend and have some rest too.

Stress no more for a few weeks... Today was our follow up health inspection. I had the kitchen, dish room, dish/ laundry room and my dey storage spotless. Two days of cleaning and wiping everything. It looked good - no it looked fantastic and we were feeding 100 people ( 230 people yesterday lunch) on top of that yesterday to boot..
She came and looked - then talked with me for two hours.. We have a couple of issues like a new cooler/ freezer unit to give me more dry storage space.
In my dry storage I have four freezers and so I need more storage space.. But the cooler is also at max capacity so just get me a new extra one. This won't happen this year but I can see it happening for next year..
Talked about my salad bar .. She doesn't like salad bars... But after our talk we have solutions that makes her a little more acceptable to ours..
She might come back this fall only for a check in..
Two hours - this is my longest time ever spent with a health inspector..
Secretly maybe she was trying to catch me..

So Sunday was an off day. I haven't any more of these for three weeks I think.. If I hear correct the next three weekends have bookings and this means I am working.
So on my last off day we / Noni and I made the most of it.
Church - a little hike at Brandywine Falls - a long stroll window shopping in Whistler and an enjoyable supper at the Keg on the third floor patio.
Even though it was only one day it felt like a whole weekend : yet not to busy to tire us out.




























Thus ended the date with Noni.
No not yet - we stopped in to say hi to my Mom then it was time to go back to camp and spend time with the Dalhouise. I had to leave him home as I knew we would be going in and out of stores and eating out.. He was a happy pooch when we got home - you would think we left him for weeks or something...

day's end and now I can have a rest with the family

So on the BBQ I cooked hotdogs and beef burgers and some chicken. In the oven I baked vegi dogs and vegi burgers.
Salad bar had about 40 items on it. Such as toss salad, spinach salad, potato salad, pasta with tuna, pasta salad, couscous, bean salad and there was a few more. We had sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, - oh I can't remember all we had lots to choose from.
I also placed out some tomato soup,and navy bean soup and a insert of fried rice.

Like I said the owner is happy.. All the guess we're very satisfied.
Even before I began cooking I had people coming up to me. Marvelling at the aroma of charcoal whisping around the camp. People were surprised it was not gas but a real BBQ ..
My point exactly to the owner later.. I think he thought I could not BBQ for this many and long.. Two hours out there in the sun and waves of heat from the BBQ and the sun - I loved every moment .. And the food was a success too

Saddle sore, but feeling engergzed. Putting on my cool looking mirror sunglasses I hop onto my bike saddle and head out the gate. Construction.. Half the road is missing and the other half is cracked and pot holed. But it is sunny, and I have supper all prepared (lasagna) so I have time to go for a long bike ride. We - my wife and I drive the four miles to the single lane bridge, ah we keep going to the four mile / eight mile viewing spot along the river bank. Do I stop? No even though this is the furthest we have ever gone on this road. We keep going and going to we reach some houses... We come to the house with the huge yellow smiley face hanging on a tree. This is where cell overage ends when leaving town towards the camp.
At this point we turn around. I am not sure what way the wind is blowing. I thought we were facing it but as we return back home it still feels like we are facing it, it is becoming more difficult to make those peddles go round and round.. Are we going up hill? It looks flat and when driving the car I never notice a difference in engine sounds.
I now and then look up to admire the mountain being swallowed by a cloud - just majestic.
I notice the wild roses in bloom as I coast on past splattering the brush along side the road with pink blossoms - not to mention the wild berries that are still in flowering mode.
We are well past the construction zone and I only hear the wind in my ears and the chirping of birds. I must make time to to do this again, but not today as I seem to have sat a little too much on that tiny little seat.

Dalhouise is not a happy camper today.. But I don't care! It is for his own good even though he doesn't understand.
Ring - ring - ring.. Our neighbour phones us.. His dog was killed last night by a cougar. He is phoning to let us know to keep our dogs tied or in the house as this large cougar is hanging around the area - also we must be aware to make sure none of our campers are wandering alone either - safety...
anyways I pick up Dalhouise and carry him back inside the cabin. Later in the morning I go get him and fasten him to the chains I have. One of the staff replied that they have never seen him tied up before.. I replied. It happens now and then. I have one at the cabin entrance and one at the entrance to the dining tent, just for occasions like today. The one by e cabin does get used more often in the middle of the night if Dalhouise decides to wake me up to go outside because I don't want him eaten..
So now he is sitting with me on the swing tied.. I guess this OK .. He is happy to be sitting with me.. ** I am off now - it is the weekend.. Hurray

I don't understand why the May 24 weekend is a week before the 24th. I remember in my youth going to the cottage on this long weekend - this is opening season for most cottages and trailers and for planting the gardens.. Not now.. Middle of the month is just to early.. Cold rains, possiblity of snow still looms heavy.. I think the government should change it back to the May 24th. And keep it there.
I did have a good day yesterday. I walked around the Boundary trail, sat by the pond spotting some birds and relaxing, sat on the swing with my pooch Dalhouse, rode my bike to the beach with my wife, watched a movie on TV, had a nap and I let my wife cut my hair.
I think that covers everything ...
Now today... It is pouring rain right now.. Sounds pleasant as it hits the tin cabin roof, and pours off onto the ground. Looks nice too as I peek out the windows and see rain falling unto green tree leaves. I think today another restful, napping afternoon is in store for me. This morning we will drive into town to attend church - have a stop to visit my mother at the nursing home. That might be a little stressful.. Depending on her mood.

Good morning - kind of..
I had a stressful night worried about today's delivery. My lunch ingredients are on that truck.
The truck until last delivery has been arriving around 630 - 8 AM perfect timing. Last delivery truck arrived 12:30 just after guess sat down to eat lunch. I am to be dropped numbers 1- 5 to get here early - I was drop number 9.
What to do if it is late?
I can change menu from perogies to Mac and cheese... So we can feed the 115 people..
Supper is here.. Turkey dinner
Tomorrow's breakfast is here
Tomorrow's lunch I can impervise ..
So should I just refuse this order if it comes late and reorder everything for next Tuesday? .
Long weekend OFF ...???

Looks like a fun day!

I am so excited about my strawberry patch. I put it in last year and this year I should get some berries. My dad is my strawberry expert. When I was little we always had a successful patch, but where they live now, the soil isn't right. I am lucky that my soil is correct. I have lots of green berries, can't wait!

Taking a deep breath......

Yesterday I was off and it was sunny after having a week of rain and dark dreary days that reminded me of fall not spring.. Noni and I took a drive to Vancacover with our bikes attached to the bike rack so we could do some cycling around the Sewawall. I think a few other thousand people had the same idea. Yes it was a little crowded but there was lots of room to move about.








Seen some birds also




and some flowers


It was a good day.

Inspection is over...phew.... I have yet to see the final report, however she said she seen no major violations. That is good. We have a couple of things that need tweeting, nothing of real consequence. I need to buy a cooling wand to cool my soups and sauces quicker, a brighter light in the fridge, raise a shelf higher off the floor, and for me to buy more storage containers to keep mice from contaminating cake pans and slicer. I walked her around and described how we serve - she looked over my menu - I told her he two most high risk items I bring in are the turkeys and chicken and in doing so I told her how I thaw them and store in fridge.
Thinking about it - we actually are a safe kitchen, as Noni told her we eat here too so we are not going to do anything that would cause us not to want to enjoy our meals.

For lunch I served Chinease food - processed - sweet and sour pork, chicken In a sauce, spring rolls, fried rice, stir fried Vegetables (fresh) and a soup.


Supper I am serving beef ribs, chicken breasts, corn on cob, friend rice and home made buns and a salad

The sun is out, it is about 15c and I am relaxing finally.

This morning we went to the condo picked up our extra matteress with a another staff member then back to camp. Tonight we should sleep well with this matteress.
In the mean time I am going to sit outside with Dalhouise and watch the robins and hummingbirds.

Tomorrow the plan is to go to church, then go visit Mom and hopefully take her out for supper.
But right now I must be still, relax, and not think about what I am going to do next.
