My Thanksgiving

This year was a big thanksgiving year. When I was a little kid we always had a family dinner with my parents, my sis and I but it was nothing special, just an ordinary dinner but for a reason. Now that we are all older thanksgiving has become a bit of an event. This year my family, Domi's mum and sis and my sisters boyfriend all gathered at my parents for a feast. My mother cooked turkey and a whole heap of American foods from her childhood. Many of them I had never even had before which was amazing. She did my favourite, Sweet potato with maple syrup and marshmallow on top, and after eating the whole turkey we enjoyed banana splits for desert. Not a bad night.

Last night was another celebration but a celebration of another kind. It was a surprise birthday party for my long time friend, Adam. The surprise party was organized, one to celebrate his birthday but two because he hates birthdays and celebrating them. Its always fun to give him a hard time so that's what we did last night. There was beer and incredible cup cakes. A good night.

A band I'm obsessed with at the moment are The Gaslight Anthem. Here they are playing "The '59 Sound" with Bruce Springsteen. Mad. Check it.

My Calm Water

Well lately I feel as if I have been treading water a little. Work is good and really flat out but I have been working on the same site for weeks now and I'm getting a little bored. I like to move around and do different things and being in one place gets to me. I'm sick of driving to the same place every day. I know most people with a desk job have to drive to the same place everyday but they are used to it. Most days I go to work its somewhere I have never been before, and I like that. For the last 3 weeks I have driven to Lonsdale, walked into the same building and dug a trench from here to there and then gone home. I think its time to spice it up a bit.

On the other hand I have found two incredible bands lately which I am enjoying driving to. Keep it up fellas.

My 450th

Well today is the 450th time I have typed words down as a post on this damn blog. Today is a bit of an occasion as well and for once its nothing to do with me or my blog. I have talked my self up enough over the years so now its time to give a shout out to Streetlight Symphony. Today is the day my two good friends Steve and Aaron have finally released their music to the public via iTunes. I have to say congratulations guys. I hope this is only the start and I hope this leads to greater and bigger things. Its been a few years in the making so please check these guys out. Give them a listen, a download and support local music. Its better than that Jay-Z album your listening to any way.

My Wisdom

This last week was as hectic as the last month or so has been. Domi and I have been doing a lot of exercise lately so after working like crazy all day and then running/walking/swimming at night I'm stuffed. I didn't work the weekend which was so unbelievably good. My first days off in three weeks. We really just relaxed and took it easy during the day Saturday and then went out that night. It was Steve and Bridie's house warming Saturday night and it was a damn good party. We drank and were merry. The one thing I took out of the night was that a lot of our friends are really moving on with their lives. Weather it be new relations moving forward or new jobs or even huge things like new houses. Everyone seems to be doing pretty well lately and that is a good thing. I think this year has been a bit of a hump for some people and now they are over it things are running a bit smoother. Its nice. Its always good to see friends happy and its good to see how new things inspire people and get them motivated. I like it.

My Lazy Weeks

Well with the last couple of weeks being more hectic than a speed freak at a rave, blogging hasn't been that high on my list. I know its terrible and I know I should have written down what I have been doing but to be honest I can't even remember what I did yesterday. So instead here are some random photos that I have taken recently-ish.
 I changed the tires on our bobcat. Not exciting???
 Our entree Domi and I enjoyed for her Birthday. Exciting????
Driving through the country near my parents farm, turned a corner and in the middle of the road, Chicken!!!!!
