While downtown, we got caught up in a protest. Heaps of people spoke out in support of live music venues being threatened by new liquor licensing laws. I don't know a whole lot about it, to be honest, but I always find it really inspiring when you see people taking a stand for what they believe in and being passionate about what they care for. Plus, they seemed to do it in a really peaceful way, with lots of music, drumming and smiles.
We went because Holly Weinert, one of the girls I work with was opening the show. She's a fabulous singer, so we're always up for seeing her gigs! She was awesome (as always!) and Carl Riseley (the jazz guy) was fabulous! He had lots of charm and lots of talent! We really enjoyed it. It was a really nice thing to do on Valentine's Day weekend:)

So whats a guy to do?
Sign up for the Full IronMan that is held at the same location in December, of course.
An Iron Man is a triathlon race that consists of a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and ending with a 42km run....
I hope to complete the race in under 13 hours.... If I actually finish the race.
Come race day, all that separates the start line from the finish chute is 226km of water and concrete.

` Update my style file for the style file course I'm taking
` Finish the inspiration boards for my style file course
` Clean bathroom
` Do laundry
` Catch up on emails
` Mail Valentine's Day cards to Canada (already way late!)

This is what I actually got done:

` Took a shower and changed into new pajamas
` Managed to keep some Rice Bubbles and a piece of toast in my tummy, but not without a lot of effort
` Snuggled back into bed and did this post
Yep, you guessed it, I caught Steve's flu and I really wish that the third thing down on my original 'To Do' list would have been something I did yesterday before I got sick. Is there anything worse than a smelly toilet when you're already sick? Ick.

Man, you have to be seriously fit to be a tennis player! Some of their serves reach 200 km an hour! Imagine returning that?!
I hope to return again soon for camping - part 2. Steve is feeling much better tonight but has had a really rough weekend. I'm hoping I don't get it. Fingers crossed!

I seem to be extra excited for Valentine's Day this year. I'm really looking forward to making some V'day crafts with the kiddies this coming week and I'm planning a little party in honor of the day on Friday in my classroom.
I made some heart decorations for the windows in our living room. I tried to find the place where I originally found the idea for these hearts but couldn't seem to locate it. My apologies if this happened to be your work and I didn't give you credit! It was a brilliant idea!:)
They are made using magazine pages and thread and look especially pretty during the day when the sun shines through them. Unfortunately, my camera doesn't photograph that well! I've also just finished painting my toes pink for the week to come. Lots of fun! What fun stuff are you doing for Valentine's Day? Any special plans with your special Love?:)
You might be wondering how it is that I'm blogging when I'm not meant to be back from camping until tomorrow night. Well, our camping trip didn't exactly go as planned, with Steve getting a reeeeeally bad stomach flu. We got to the campsite around 5 pm last night and Steve started getting sick around 1 am. We left 7:30 this morning for the 4 hour drive home. Poor Steve. It was a rough ride! I did manage to get a few pictures of our short stay, so I'l post those tomorrow. It was a really beautiful place. We will definitely need to go back and try the whole camping thing again!
