Hello bloggers, happy Friday the 13th! This week Victoria felt like Las Vegas when we had the highest temperatures on record. It was 104 degrees on Wednesday. Luckily we have air conditioning. Our friends here in Victoria are convinced that we brought this weather with us. We have guests visiting from Las Vegas this week and we are officially blaming it on them.

No new news on the Las Vegas house selling. This is one of our last hurdles to overcome. Once it is sold, life will be looking pretty peachy.

This weekend we plan to take the ferry to Salt Spring Island and walk through the market. It is a great way to spend a Saturday. This time, I think we will stop at The Garry Oaks Winery on the way back to the ferry. They have a great wine called ‘Fetish’ which is worth it for the name alone.

I start a new job on Monday with the BC Transit doing payroll/timesheet management. It is a full-time temporary position. The good thing about temporary is if we don’t like each other, it’s only six weeks. The bad thing about temporary is if we really love each other it’s going to end before we would like. I hope it is the later. So I’m really excited about my first job here in Canada. I work for a temp agency that I really like. The people who manage the agency are fantastic and have very positive attitudes. I don’t feel invisible there. I’ll let you know how it goes after the first week. Another great thing is it is very close to where Diane works so we will car pool for the next 6 weeks. I have a parking lot at my job and she does not so I will drop her off and pick her up. She usually takes the bus.

Now if the house could sell this week . . .
