Quiet, Relaxing, Rainy Day in New Westminster

Since we arrived on Monday it’s been non-stop work. The Client Communication Clinic yesterday in Vancouver went well. We met an aspiring virtual assistant that we are meeting again next week at a North Vancouver Waves Coffee Shop to chat with and see how else we can help her get her business up and running.

Today is the first day since we left California that we have all to ourselves to relax and not work. It’s very quiet this morning since the construction workers aren’t working next door on the weekend. It has decided to rain a bit. We’re not sure how that will affect our plans yet to walk to the Skytrain station later. Fiona really wants to ride the Skytrain and we’d planned to do that this afternoon.

Yesterday afternoon we went to the library and Fiona checked out 10 books – all of which she had read before bedtime! I’m going to do some cleaning around our ‘home’ today. And we’ll let you know how that whole Skytrain trip turns out. Stay tuned!

Updated August 19, 2010 with this photo of Brodie the Canine we were dog sitting (I think he was wishing we could go for a walk):

  1. Too bad my head reacts this way to weather changes nowadays. But at least by 4pm I’ve moved past ‘exploding eyeballs’ to ‘stupid slug’ stage.

    We’ll conquer the Sky Train yet! For now, I’m just enjoying the rain.

  2. If you haven’t made it to Skytrain yet, we recommend getting the Shuttle Bus on 2nd Street. Down to the corner of Regina & 2nd, turn left, see bus stop. You can find times, etc. at http://www.translink.bc.ca There is a shuttle every half hour that will take you right to the skytrain.

  3. Thanks Caitlyn. We didn’t end up going yesterday but plan to next Saturday. This is very helpful since we were thinking we’d walk all the way to the Skytrain station.
