Summer is Here!

Filed under: General — by at 2:03 pm on Saturday, June 13, 2009

Brightly coloured flowers received from SPARC BC Wow, what a ride! In the last six weeks, I have:

Oprah's puppy Sadie outside of Harpo StudiosIn that time, I have also:

Now, I am completely and totally drained. I am eagerly looking forward to a summer break! I’m looking forward:

  • to laying in bed until mid-morning (or beyond), guilt-free, with the gentle breeze drifting in and my mind wandering.
  • to summertime reading, including Pam Slim’s Escape from Cubicle Nation, which I began on the plane to Chicago. Imagine a business book that is actually funny! (Thanks Pam for the kind mention on page 130!)
  • to finding the top of my desk and other buried corners of my home,
  • to reclaiming the deck from the weeds, once the painters have finished this end of the building (Is it too late to plant pansies and petunias?), and
  • to, most importantly, reconnecting with my sorely neglected husband and enjoying more views like the one below while on adventures around Vancouver:

Marina on the south side of False Creek, Vancouver

“Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancing in the street.”

What are your plans for enjoying this summer? Or, if you are a friend from the southern hemisphere, this winter?

Hi Glenda,

Enjoy your summer break! You deserve it!

I would love to get involved with SPARC at the Board level. Do you know who I should contact to express my interest?

Talk to you soon,

Thanks Cyndi!

Had I known your interest in SPARC, I could have put forth your name to the Nominations Committee. The AGM was last night and the Directors were elected.

Perhaps try contacting Alla, she is the administrative assistant (for the next few weeks) and can likely point you in the right direction. Nomination is based on several criteria, so Alla can help you with that. Good luck!

I’ve read about all those adventures but seeing them all listed really does show just how busy you have been – no wonder you are looking forward to relaxing this summer! I’m going to meet a friend in Glastonbury for a break from the stress of work and ill health and then a trip to Rome for a friend’s wedding – yay busy but fun! Enjoy your summer break, Glenda, so well deserved!
