Place 72 – Day 39: Vancouver,BC – Banana Bread Competition & Pot Luck

Curtis’ Day

Curtis started the day with a coffee and apple juice after walking to work.

He looked into a possible setup for someone that wanted something a little specific and Curtis wasn’t even sure if it was possible!

Curtis helped with a few small issues and then he went to do some banana bread judging. Two colleagues had said they were each better at baking banana bread, so they went to war and each made one for everyone to test and vote on!

After lunch, Curtis did some more research for his project as well as had a phone call with a software company in relation to this project. They are also based in Vancouver and not far from Curtis’ office…And the guy was British.

Curtis installed some extra RAM in someone’s laptop and once that was done, he spent a bit of time seeing if he could develop a little something himself for the project, partially due to interest but also in case it would work for what he needs.

Kim’s Day

Kim got to work and got set up and spent the first bit of her day watching more training videos.

Then some information came in about some travel Kim was booking so she went back over to reception to get some help with that. That then spiraled into other mini training sessions.

It was then time to pack down guitar hero and put the kitchen back to normal.

Kim then went into a meeting to get a better understanding of what another string of her role would be. She also had a good chat with the lady she would be working closely with for it.

Then it was time to set up for the pot luck people set up to celebrate Eid. There was a wonderful spread and Kim provided some Brookies that went down well.

After stuffing her face with amazing food Kim went back to her desk to do a little more training. This then got a little tedious so kim decided to start setting up spreadsheets and other documents to get her started in her role. Things like template emails, lists of the more random items that get purchased on occasion and other stuff like that.

Then her computer was about to die so Kim and a colleague went about clearing the kitchen. All the food that was left had been polished off, so that made it much easier!

Seawall Walk

We both finished work and headed home. Once we got back, Kim headed back out briefly to pick something up whilst Curtis played some games.

When Kim returned, we went for a walk for about 20 minutes. We walked along the seawall, which is just outside our house, and along the private harbours and by the restaurants. This was a nice thing to do as the weather was very warm and the sun was going down, glistening off the water.

We had to fight through a horde of geese to get back home, but once we did we had dinner.

We ate the same as yesterday to finish it off.

We watched the Billions season finale and then an episode of Chernobyl.


This Time Last Year!
