Deep cove chalet

Gene and Lily took me out for a fair well lunch at the Deep Cove Chalet. As usual, the food was fantastic.

First course was a mini onion croquette salad with bacon and boiled egg.

The final countdown!

As they say, time flies and so will we in as little as 17 days. My head is distracted with numerous checklists, I’m surprised I remembered to brush my teeth this morning.
Our flat is barren with the exception of a mattress, a few kitchen tools, A CAT and a two year old collection of dust bunnies which have been impossible to fully exterminate. I’ve called all government and bank officials to let them know I’m leaving. We’ve whittled down our possessions to 2 backpacks, our camping equipment ( free with Air Transat!), a computer bag, a camera bag and 2 small carry ons.
Monday, Matt and I move in with mom for a few days, then it’s off to Vancouver for a last minute Arek visit, then we leave.

You have no idea how excited we are!
Wish us luck.

Sleepover and wine class

In 17 days, Matt and I will be living the European dream!
Last night, Carla and I had our last wine class. We drank, giggled and ate great snacks while watching our wine tutorial DVD.
Though we forgot to have a pillow fight, we indeed had a fun sleepover party.
Thank you for everything Carla, you’re the best!
