Hello crazy times ahead. With a mere two days before we get on a flight and get out of sunny (or not so sunny, as this week would have it) WA and head out into the great beyond… to say I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed would be a slight understatement. Getting myself and Bo ready to go to Canada, clean our house, tidy our yard, wrap up a bunch of food posts so that something actually pops up on this blog whilst I’m away doing exciting things (mainly, eating)… was a mission and a half. And to top it off I decided to go all crazy and take on full time work for the week too… because I am, you know, certifiable. Possibly not the smartest decision I have ever made. It made for a lot of late night-ers at my computer tap-tap-tapping away with blogs and posts for other publications, and surviving long days at work whilst dragging the bags hanging from my face behind me.
On Sunday Bo and I will fly to Sydney and spend two nights and one beautiful day (come on Sydney, give us SUN!) with friends and family in preparation for the big journey. To say I’m shitting my pants about the long haul flight… would be a bit dramatic (and also… somewhat accurate). I have no idea how we are going to manage but I know we will and the pay off in sweet tarts, tim hortons and hot wings at the other end will be worth it ten fold. I’m so excited for pumpkin season, thanksgiving, apple orchards and amazing adventures both in and outside of one of my absolute favourite cities on this beautiful planet of ours. Canada… prepare yourself… we are coming for you!
I just joined Google+. Well actually, I’ve had a Google+ account for a long time but it was sitting around dusty and completely unused until I pulled it back out the other evening and dusted it off. I will be totally honest with you. I have absolutely, 100% no idea how to use it. None what so ever. I’m generally pretty terrible at social media. Apparently the key to a successful blog lies in ones ability to be organised and well connected. I am neither of these things. I’m flighty and terribly inconsistent. But I like Google+ (from what I’ve read and heard about it… we’ll see how I go actually using it as a platform)… and I’m going to give it a red hot go, so come find me (because I have no idea how to use the search bar and I have NO idea how to find you!) and be my friend so I can find you back. Do you use Google+? Do you like it? Any red hot tips for a total newbie?
Have a beautiful weekend friends. I’ve got lots of posts lined up for you that have been pre-written and prepared so whilst you will get a few carefully prepared installments of Inked the next time you will hear from real-time me… we will be on the other side of the planet, and we will have already survived the long haul and the pain will already be over. Good? GOOD! See you on the other side!
