Is it Summer Where you Live?

Last Update: July 20, 2014

I know it isn't summer everywhere! But for a majority of people it currently is.

Summer has always been my favorite season. Nothing I love more than being outside, sunshine, fresh crops (I come from the prairies of Canada) and the joyous buzz of events continuously happening.

I spent 5 weeks hitchhiking across the country. If you didn't know- you can check that out here. I then returned and immediately spent 5 days at a music festival, with my birthday being celebrated there too. Now that I am back I spent the remainder of the week doing landscaping and fence building (some great pocket money) and packing.

I came to a decision that I was going to be moving to Alberta, Canada, in August. I have so many ambitions, dreams and goals and I seem to always be so busy and/or distracted here. I need to go and seclude myself a bit for a while. There is way too much to focus on: WA, my sites, my books and I want to take a couple courses.

While I am so sad to be leaving Saskatchewan (for the time being) I know I need this more than ever. I feel so eager and determined and can't wait to get back in the saddle and keep chasing those dreams.

While I have been quiet on here, I promise it will pick up. WA has helped to shape me into the person I am continuously growing into and I am rearing to get back and working on my sites. While my focus shifted from travel, to taking this great temporary job opportunity and getting ready to move, I am reminded at how fast life can change. Another big change is coming up for me and I'll be taking the bull by the horns.

I just wanted to wish everyone well and let you all know that I am eager to participate again soon. You've all helped me so much and I want to be there for you too :)

Well, I'm leaving for Michigan Friday. I love it in the summer, so many lakes and parks. I just found out yesterday that a good friend of mine up there has stage4 cancer, so that's upsetting. I hope she gets better. I'm going to have to take a break from work for a while. Good luck with your new journey.

I hope she gets better too! Wishes and prayers for your friend.
I've only driven through Michigan and stopped in Detroit. I never realized they had so many lakes.

It's winter here in Perth, Western Australia. We don't have severe winters here, I like winter here but spring or autumn are my favorites. Summers too hot.

Fair enough. I think if I had summers that hot I would be living right by the ocean and spending the majority of the day in it.

LOL - well it's called summer in the UK but it's not a very accurate description for what we experience. Glad you've been having a good time. :) beverley

:( I know the feeling- we will be getting our share of winter sooner than we want.
