Place 72 – Day 954: Vancouver, BC – A Weird Feeling Day

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a pretty productive day, getting a lot of tickets done and he had just one meeting, too, so not much of his day was taken up with meetings.

He had a surprise onboard to get done, so he did that just before lunch, and then after lunch was a little quieter but still some tickets and messages to deal with.

The day felt a little weird for us both, as it was the first day working in 4 days, so we both felt odd!

Kim’s Day

Kim had a busy day today, she had a lot of meetings and was able to get a few things done during the evening. She started with a meeting about business cards and then went into a meeting to discuss next steps with candidates for a role.

She had a quick check in with her new teammate before having a meeting with a different teammate about a new social activity they will be organising.

To finish the morning Kim joined her team meeting, then to start the afternoon a couple of her teammates joined a call to go over their HR system, assign access levels and do a tour of the platform.

She had a check in with a new employee before helping her team by answering questions for them to build the org chart. To finish the day Kim had a couple of calls to help with planning for a conference and then she popped out to pick up a laptop. She got a good amount of admin done in the evening too!

Evening

We took out the recycling and we did the vacuuming as well as a few other things around the apartment.

We had cheese for dinner, fairly late, and watched a little TV.

Place 72 – Day 918: Vancouver, BC – Finally Exploring A Little

Kim went out to get croissants for breakfast and we ate those and then very slowly got ourselves ready for the day.

Here in BC, we are able to travel within our health region, which is quite large, and they no longer suggest not doing so, so we went a little further today!

We drove out towards where we stayed when we first got here, near Burnaby, and walked around a park we’d been to a couple of times.

We walked through the forest areas and almost all of the park. We were met by many squirrels and birds and the weather got way hotter then it was meant to be, which was lovely!

We walked around for a while and then started to need a drink and got a bit too warm, so we headed back towards home.

We needed to go to the supermarket, so we stopped in there on the way back.

After we got home, we did some laundry and vaccuming and then Kim made the teriyaki chicken burgers that she’s made a few times! She made a decent amount of them so we can have them whenever we want without having to make them again!

Kim cooked up the burgers and we had that with sweet potato fries and corn on the cob. A delicious dinner.

We ate and relaxed and then Kim went for a nice relaxing bath.

We watched a little TV after that and then went to bed, ready for work tomorrow.

Place 72 – Day 458: Vancouver, BC – The Start of Christmas Things

We woke up pretty late today and had some cinnamon buns for breakfast whilst watching some TV.

We got ourselves ready and then did a bunch of housework, getting some laundry done, replacing the bed sheets and some vaccuming.

We went out for a coffee late afternoon and short walk, as far away from people as we could.

We got back home and played some games and then we went out to the supermarket in the evening to get our weekly shop.

The shop was quite large, but we have some really nice meals planned for the week!

We got home and made some potato and chicken with BBQ sauce and cheese along with a side salad and garlic bread. A big mix of random stuff but pretty tasty!

We then watched a Christmas film (kinda) called Holidate and then a Christmas TV show based in Norway and in Norwegian, which was most of the reason we are watching it!
