However I have had a lot of fun... so I really shouldn't complain.
One of my goals for the summer was to go hiking. I was able to climb Chinamans Peak (this is a beautiful mountain close to Canmore, AB).
This summer I developed Celiacs Disease, so I have been spending a lot of time trying to make yummy gluten free recipes. One of my favorites cooking books is Make it Paleo. So far every recipe has been delicious.... and I am no longer missing certain foods.
Ok... that is a lie... I will always miss perogies... sniffle.
Here are some yummy creations:
Lastly... I have spent some time this summer at the Calgary Stampede. This year was the 100th anniversary so I felt the need to go a couple times. My favorite things were:
- watching the chuck wagon races
- Paul Brandt at the Grandstand Show
- and having VIP passes to the barns
Being behind the scenes at the barns was amazing!! I have really high standards for how horses should taken care of in these facilities and I was blown away by the superb care these animals received. I also fell in love with this horse Cash. He loved to smell my breath and then turn his nose up at me. What a cutie!!
I wish I could say that I have some lazy days coming up.... but that is not happening.. too much fun in the works. I have to leave now and get ready for the driving range :)
