Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Vancouver firemen are hot… and helpful ; )

So a couple weeks back… Friday night around 11:30 the electric heater in my living room lights up and starts smoking for about five seconds and then stops. So I’m a little freaked… this doesn’t seem normal… my living room is all smokey. What to do, what to do. Don’t really have a landlord to call so I thought I would just call the fire hall (not 911, just the general number) to see if this is normal and am I safe to go to sleep without fear of waking up extra crispy.

The girl was really nice, she thought it might be electrical as the heater wasn’t turned on so she was going to send over a couple guys to look at it. Ok, cool… but then I take a look at my apartment and it’s a total mess. So I cram everything in my room and shut the door… goodstuff. While I’m giving my apartment the 5min cleaning I hear the sirens… couldn’t be for me. She said a couple guys. Two huge firetrucks pull up to my building and five HOT firemen pile into my tiny little apartment. I was not complaining. I even pressed play on my little stereo to see if they’d start stripping… no such luck – these one’s were the real thing.

So they made fun of me a little – my apartment is very dark because I can’t figure out how to change the bulbs on the fancy potlights -they found this amusing. And then one hot fire guy doesn’t really believe me about the flames and decides to test the heater by turning it on – of course the thing starts sparking, flaming, smoking and generally freaking me out… I don’t like fire. But then I looked around at the five men all geared up and ready to extinguish something and thought ‘it’s ok they can light my apartment on fire if they want… I’m safe’. See what hot men do to me.

Anyway, they ended up turning the power off to the heaters. But of course to do this I have to take the hottest of the five hot men to the circuit board… In my bedroom – my bedroom that I piled my apartment mess into. It was not a pretty sight. But no big fire : )

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
