I think the question I have been asked the most since I got back is, "How are you adjusting to the cold snow?" To be honest, I have adjusted just fine. It was quite cold right when I left Kenya so maybe that prepared me a little bit but I haven't really suffered more than everyone else. I definitely don't enjoy the cold or the snow. There have been a few days that I stayed inside all day which I am quite happy with.
However, over the past few days, the sun (and my dog) have dragged me out of the house for a few walks.
This is the view from my brother's driveway in Kelowna. The mountains are absolutely gorgeous.
I really love living next to a large river. I think I take it for granted too much. It is truly incredible.
This is my dog Lucy. SHe is getting old and doesn't get out much so she takes every opportunity she gets to sniff everything. She is often the one who forces me out of the house for a walk. She just looks at you and this wave of guilt overcomes you and you just have to do it.
She is adorable.
I have seen a lot of beautiful places all around the world but there is a world of beauty in my back yard. I am blessed to live here, thats for sure!
