October Staycation

This past week my hubby and I had a staycation.  We love Fall - and it's for this reason that we always take a week or so off to enjoy it.

During our week off we gorged on Little Caesars Stuffed Crazy Bread and Cinnamon rolls (nom nom nom carbs lol). Purchased a few new aquarium inhabitants, including 3 snails, 3 Odessa Barbs, 3 Skirt Tailed Tetra Glowfish, and a Kheli Loach. So far, one of the Tinfoil Barbs has tried to immediately pick up and eat the loach, and tried to pull a snail off the glass of the aquarium. We are doing fish counts daily until the Tinfoil Barbs lose interest.

We also took a drive through Swift Current to Marystown to do some sightseeing.




Along this route are a few lookouts.  We did stop at one of them, however, the binoculars that were stationed here were broken (maybe sandblasted by the wind sweeping over the area?)


 



There seems like there is nothing special about this area.  But, this is the only area of this stretch with boulders- the rest is windswept plains with wind-stunted evergreen trees that are trying to grow. Newfoundland has the strongest winds of all of Canada, and you can read more about our weather here.

We ended this week with our 6th wedding anniversary, which we celebrated by going to The Keg for supper. It turned out the be a great night, with delicious food, and we even managed to snag a super close parking spot on the harbor front.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog.

Later Days,
Jen

Sci-Fi on the Rock

Hi folks,

Last weekend myself and Mandi attended, and hosted an event and panel at this years Sci-Fi on the Rock for our Welcome to Deadhouse Goosebumps book club (#GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter).


This adventure all started with suggestions from our spouses. So, we came up with a few ideas, went through the application process and waited. We are new to the event and panelist, and our YouTube book club is under a year old - so we figured that we didn't have much of a shot of being accepted.  Then the email came. We were accepted as panelist. For both ideas that we submitted.  Oh snap! Oh snap! OH SNAP!

Planning the panels was super fun.  We love the Goosebumps series and we were able to create a plan that we were both happy with.  The "Reader Beware, You Choose the Scare!" event was first - it was the first evening of the event, and scheduled to be 2 hours long. Here we read through the Diary of the Mad Mummy, and backtracked 4 times to get 4 different endings.  We had antic…

Rewind Tour - 2018

We've been having a few throwback tours hitting the island in the past few years.  This year's tour being The Rewind Tour - and it didn't disappoint!

I'll take this post back to last year when we attended the first throwback tour - I Love The 90's tour.  This concert was amazing!  Heading the show was Salt-n-Peppa. And other acts included Rob Base, Color Me Badd, All-4-One, one member of the C&C Music Factory, Biz Markie and Young MC. The attending crowd could be spotted around the town quite easily before and after the concert as most concert-goers were dawning neon from head to toe, crimped big hair, and other 90's fashions.

While the music was fantastic at the I Love The 90's tour, I was disappointed that there was no merchandise for sale. I believe here is where I raise my hand and admit that I have a concert t-shirt collection, right?  I had my heart set on adding a Salt-N-Peppa t-shirt to my collection.

Well, this year, the concert folks learned a…
