House Sitting in Ottawa in August

It’s confirmed. We will be house sitting in August in Ottawa Canada. We’re looking forward to seeing friends in Ottawa and maybe even heading over to Montreal to say hi to some friends. Then there’s other musician friends in Toronto. Should be fun.

This house sitting thing is picking up. We’re leaving our current house sitting gig in Arizona on Saturday and arriving on Sunday at our next gig in Colorado. June and July we house sit in New Mexico and now Ottawa in August.

If you need a house sitter anytime from September forward, you’d better contact us soon before our schedule fills up!

Quick Update: Toronto to Michigan

We spent yesterday on the road from Ottawa to Toronto. Today we leave for Michigan. Back Stateside. Joel had lots of fun last night getting to play music with fellow FAWMers Debs and Errol. I got some great video and pictures but don’t have time to post them right now. Watch for them soon.

We’ll be meeting Phil W. in Michigan today and staying at his place for a couple of nights. So I’ll have time to post some pictures and update you all.

Exercising in Ottawa: Walking and the Trampoline

Yesterday we arrive at Shawn and Debbie’s. They live just outside of Ottawa. ¬†Joel and Shawn first connected at Seth Godin’s Triiibes. After a wonderful meal and a relaxing evening visiting, we had a good night’s sleep. Today we were able to do some client work and take a nice long walk around the neighborhood.

The neighborhood and homes are beautiful. I was especially impressed with the large amount of land for each home and how they are set back from the street. Much different than being stacked on top of each other in a big city.

Fiona enjoyed jumping on the trampoline as you can see in the pictures. Since it was a beautiful sunny day we took a walk. However she wasn’t as excited about that after a bit since it was cool. Joel and I loved the cooler weather! Fiona did really enjoy playing with ello. Shawn explained that it’s created by Lego for girls.

It’s about time Joel and I get started preparing for dinner tonight. We’re going to cook fish tacos for the family. Too bad though we can’t get corn tortillas around here.

It’s Been Fun!

It’s our last night in Quebec. Thank you to Cristina, Fred and their family for their generous hospitality! Fiona is going to miss their kids. We’ve had a lot of fun here in Quebec and hope to come back. We’ve made some great new friends who’ve given us their contact information to stay in touch with them.

We’ll be leaving tomorrow for Ottawa to stay again with Shawn, Debbie and their two kids for a few nights. We’re looking forward to being on the road again for a few hours and watching the beautiful scenery as we drive by.
