December 2012

We had a lot of snow fall. These are times I find a bit depressing. But I have to admit, the snow is beautiful.






It is freezing outside, but inside our home we have our own sunshine - ourselves.  Ron and I had a quiet Christmas in Elko. Ron made turkey.






We bought "Magic Sing" karaoke machine as our Christmas present to ourselves. It sure made the holidays feel more joyful. Again, this year went by fast. 

December 2, 2012

We had a wonderful visit with Mike, Jay and Adam.

Movember


A fake mustache. I am showing my support for http://ca.movember.com. If you would like to help me raise some money for this cause, visit : http://mobro.co/edgarnievera

Hi,

It's Movember and time to make a difference.

Men’s health is a cause I am passionate about but in order to make a difference I need your help. My commitment is to grow a moustache for the month of November and in doing so, raise vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male mental health.

I am asking you to help support my personal journey by making a donation. The size of which isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember to continue funding its world class programs.  If you want to know more about what you’ll be helping to fund, you can visithttp://ca.movember.com/about/funding-overview/.

To highlight the importance of what I am doing, take a look at these statistics:
•    1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
•    This year 26,500 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
•    1 in 5 men will experience a mental illness this year

If you’d like to help change these statistics, please donate to me here: http://mobro.co/edgarnievera

If you’re interested, here’s a video that will help you better understand the type of programs you’ll be helping to fund by making a donation. For wider details, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website: http://ca.movember.com/about/funding-overview/

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men's health.

Late October 2012

 Amy's farewell party. I got to meet other Filipinos in Fernie. So awesome!!!!

 Making some Trick or Treat bags for the kids in Elko, or whoever knocks on our door on Halloween night!

September 2012

 I found this on the floor at work last night. It looked as if it was trying to escape somewhere. 






 September 18, 2012.  My mom's 6th year death anniversary. Colon Cancer. I remembered her up at Rabbit mountain. 








 Traffic at Highway 3. There was an accident. 







 Real wax - but fake lights. They look like real candles but they run on batteries. Bonus - has a timer and turns on by itself at night. 







Best deal ever!!!!!!! I paid $16.75 for shipping. These are free glasses from clearlycontacts.ca.

September 12, 2012

After I got off from work today at 12:00 noon, I decided to buy a bottle of red wine and thought I would go up one of my favorite place (Rabbit Mountain, Elko) at around 4:00 PM to just hang out and "feel" the planet and listen to positive thoughts. Sounds weird doesn't it? 








This is un-oaked. They've replaced the cork with plastic now. :-( . Nonetheless, The wine was still very good.  I had some music playing on my iPad, and just enjoyed the sunshine. Sooo beautiful. I love this place. 












 I hardly carry my real cameras with me now. I'm always using my iPad for everything. 








 My little cooler for the wine and the pop. It worked well for me today. 







 While up at Rabbit Mountain, I started putting my business cards inside Stick-a-thoughts. Everything felt right up there with the mountains, The Sky, The sunshine and my dreams. 








 This is one of the views from my spot. Here you see the small town of Elko. Somewhere down there is where I live and across the main highway to the left is a gas station where I also work at. Ron and I will most likely be no longer living here by June of 2013. That's only a few months away. 







 The last drop of wine hours later and the sun setting. 









I enjoyed watching the sunset from up the mountain. 








 A self-portrait up at Rabbit Mountain. 








 My Picnic spot with the malong I bought from the Philippines.  Such clutter! from the left; wine, pringles, orange wine bottle opener, my tan summer hat, a pack of marlboro lights, my backpack and the red cooler. Life is good. I am grateful.









It got dark. So at this point, I decided to go home. I went down the mountain in the dark and used my iPad as a flashlight. It was a good day. I send love to the universe. Good Night.

September 11, 2012

The alarm clock went off at 7:00 AM. I got up to get ready for today's Rails to Trails Bike ride in Cranbrook (To Kimberley) 






 It took a while for me to find out where the parking lot was. By the time I got started it was 9:45 AM. It was chilly. I had some Biking gear which I planned on wearing but decided it was way too cold for that at this time of the day, So I ended up biking in my light jacket and Jeans. 






 I love this hat! 





 I decided to not have a helmet as well. Since the trail was pretty much paved and predictable and empty to begin with. 






 A nice view about 45 minutes from start. 





 Sane view on Instagram mode





 Somewhere in Wycliff (Just before Marysville when heading towards Kimberly) 






 Crossing the River. 










 Taken somewhere between Marysville and Wycliff. 















 My legs were aching and I needed to sit and take it easy for a bit. 







 I had to drop by the local drug store to get some of these. I was aching. 







 Today's Lunch






 My View from inside the Chinese Restaurant. 





Kimberley: I used to live here once upon a time. 



 I took these photos on my way back to Cranbrook. Going back was so much easier because it was mostly downhill. 
















 By The time I arrived in Cranbrook, It was an hour and 36 minutes of biking. Now that  was not so bad at all. 






 Thought I would take a photo of the marker. My remebrance. 






When I got to Cranbrook hours later, I brought my glasses in for some notepad adjustments. While the staff was fixing them, I thought I would try on these frameless  glasses. I think I will have these next time. Now I have got to go home and get some sleep. I need to be at work at 7 tomorrow morning. Love to all of you my Family and friends. Until next blog.
