giving into peer pressure from fellow v.commies

July 27, 2006 at 6:18 PM

Ah, everyone is posting pictures! I'm going to succomb to peer pressure and post some pictures in this "bon voyage" entry. The packing has commenced, my room is buried in the things I want/need to cram into my suitcase but I feel good and excited! As a fun thing to do this week to experience summer in the Okanagan before I leave (I didn't go swimming here once last summer) I went tubing down the river channel. I went once, just half way on Monday and then yesterday I met up with some visiting friends who were in town and we did the whole 4 hour marathon river channel. My tube had a huge gaping hole in it and it was completely useless by about an hour in so that made things interesting. Anyways! I leave for YAE in only a days time and I'm getting very excited (and nervous!!! *bites nails*). I've finally got everything I need including food and manditory sunglasses (as modeled below)It's hard to believe how fast the summer has gone since I finished school on the 29th, everything is just coming up so fast but it's been nice to have a bit of relaxation time.

Now, before I go and as above mentioned, I'm giving into peer pressure and posting a few pictures. I don't believe I've introduced everyone to my new found love, a beautiful 1925 Guarneri model Roth violin. So here it is!

Here's the view up the hill from where I live (if you are really keen and good at walking up steep inclines you can walk to this spot in about 5 minutes)

Here are the new shades - looking cool. I made the necklace I'm wearing too in case anyone is interested.

Bon Voyage everyone! See you when I get back!

That yellowish varnish is unusual. Tell us more about it when you get a chance.
