I am determined I am going to try and blog more. Maybe not every day but every few days to weeks. I am so horrible at it sometimes. I know I am not the only one but it sometimes bugs me. I have been sick for the last two weeks and have been off at home after a tooth extraction gone wrong. I was too sick to do much but lay on the couch but today I am feeling a slight bit better though I still have to rest and try and get rid of the infection (more about that in a moment) but because I am feeling a tiny bit better I decided to work on a few projects.
Happy Canada Day to any of my fellow Canadians and also a Happy early Independence Day to my neighbours! So for Canada Day this year Eddie and I decided to do something else rather than brave the crowds for the many events going on in Digby or Annapolis. We decided to drive down Digby Neck to East Ferry, hopped the Petit Princess to Tiverton on Long Island and then eventually onward to Westport on Brier Island. Anyone who knows me or has been following my blog for a while will know my love of lighthouses, islands, tides, and anything to do with the ocean other than eating fish.
After getting off the ferry in Tiverton turn right and head down Boar’s Head Road to Boar’s Head Lighthouse. The current lighthouse was built in 1957 and is the second lighthouse on the site. The original was built in 1863 in roughly the same spot. I am assuming that the area I was standing on to take the picture may have been the foundation of the original lighthouse but I am not sure. It was a large concrete platform up above the lighthouse.
Wow… I am so horrible at keeping a blog sometimes. It seems like yesterday it was May and I had just posted my last post. Then all of a sudden it is the end of June and I realized I have not posted anything at all here since the beginning of May. Where the heck did the time go? It’s not like I was busy really. I have been home pretty much doing nothing for weeks. Things have slowed down for my mom’s business over the summer, which is typical as the courts aren’t really open in the summertime. So I haven’t had a lot to do.
I have always wanted to get back into banking and working for a bank so after talking it over with Edward and my mom I decided to start applying again and guess what? I got a job. It’s about 30 minutes away in Bridgetown at a bank there. I will be working in a branch as a teller part-time! Which is exactly what I wanted. I don’t really need to work full-time at the moment and neither does Edward if we have the right jobs.
I have been trying to come up with a side project for weeks. One thing I have noticed over the years is that as time goes by I am having a harder and harder time with coming up with blog posts. Sometimes I go weeks, months or even years. Yes… years without posting. I don’t want to get rid of the domain or blog ever. It’s part of who I am. It’s something I have enjoyed doing for about 20 years. I started blogging during a very dark time in my life which I am not going to get into because that is not what this post is about but it has helped me tremendously during the years and then more recently just as a way to unwind and try to show some of my creativity and express my thoughts.
Anyways, back to the subject, sorry got a bit sidetracked there. So I was having trouble coming up with an idea and while doing some thinking I came to the conclusion that maybe I was thinking too hard. Maybe I should just do something that has already been done but revamp it and give it a unique twist. Something along the lines of BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo if anyone even remembers or knows what that is. So I decided to create The BloggerHop.
I have been working a lot lately. Typing pretty much from the time I get up until an hour or two before bed. It’s tiring but we really needed to get the stuff out to the client. Mom, Edward and I have all been working on it. I enjoy typing but I find after a while of staring at the screen, listening to what they say and trying to get it all down, my mind is mush. My productivity really suffers and likely my quality as well. Mom proofs everything so I know she’ll catch any mistakes but still. I need to take more short breaks.
