Nelson I heart you

My "little" brother lives in a town in Southern BC called Nelson.  It's a place like no other.  I love it there.  The people are laid back and the town moves at it's own pace.  My brother calls it Kootenay Time.  Sometimes you show up at a store and there's a sign saying be back in five.  Sometimes a store is supposed to open at 10:00am and it opens at 10:30 because someone went to get coffee.  It's all so surprising to me because my town is such the opposite.  The oil patch drives our economy and everyone wants everything done yesterday.  People here work all hours of the day and night and 70 hour work weeks are practically the norm, even in a recession. 

I've been thinking of my brother lately and wishing I could go and visit him and have a coffee at the Oso Negro Cafe and order a peanut butter ball with chocolate on top.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 

Seany, I miss you.

Long time, no talk

Just wanted to pop in and say hi!  I have been having a very enjoyable summer and have gotten away from blogging and the computer in general.  Instead I have been spending a lot of time outside playing with Ruby or reading a book.
I have some exciting news though.  I have recently acquired a cool new typewriter:

I call her Lucille. She'll be helping me write letters to all of my penpals.  Here's a close up of her keys:

I am hoping to be a more regular blogger now that the weather here is starting to cool down. I fear that it is almost time to swap my flip flops for my socks and shoes again.  I love the Fall but I have been enjoying the warm summer and I'll be kind of sad to see it go.

Happy Monday!!
