I haven't blogged in ages, but thought that I might get back to it. A lot of cool and not so cool stuff has happened in the 2 years since I last posted. So as not to make a long boring blog, here is everything in a nutshell from the past year:
April 2013: sold house in Toronto
April 2013: moved to Chateau Lake Louise to work as a pastry chef
June 2013: decided the Chateau Lake Louise wasn't for me
July 2013: flew back to Ontario and moved in with my dad and stepmom in Bobcaygeon
July 2013: my niece was born
September 2013: joined the Barrie Yacht Club
October 2013: moved to Barrie and got a legal assistant job (again...sigh)
November 2013: met a tattooed, Harley riding guy named Mike
Yup...my life in the past year summed up in 8 lines. However, I'm happy as a clam in shite, if indeed a clam can be happy in that situation. This past winter has been a long slog as far as the weather here in Ontario, last Thursday was the first day of spring and of course it's snowing today, and last weekend, this is what it looked like on Georgian Bay, less than a week away from the first day of spring:
My boy Mike spent the winter in Florida (insert groans here...) and I was able to visit twice and met some really great new friends while I was there. I even had my first ride on a motorcycle and loved it (and no screaming, just big smiles):
This summer will be full of sailing on Lake Simcoe (I have been assured that you can navigate Lake Simcoe with a road map...), riding on the back of Mike's Harley (I will require new outfits) and spending some nice, not so quiet weekends in the Muskokas in Mike's camper (Gawd help us all...). In the fall who knows, right now I'm just itching for the weather to suddenly spring into spring so that I can get out of the house and get some fresh air that won't make my nostrils stick together.
The Sailing Chef has new adventures on the horizon that may even include a change of the name of my blog to the Travelling Chef - so stay tuned sports fans...
