Comfort in The Mountains

My loves! Thank you for being with me and following my latest news.

As you remember I live little bit far from the city. I feel myself extremely happy person and I really enjoy staying  in the mountains: fresh air, crystal clear water and beautiful nature. I’ve recently refreshed my design with beautiful furniture. To be honest, I haven’t changed the basic Adirondack style, because it was already great. Adirondack is a style, which calls you to get rid of the burden problems, work and life in the big city with their exhausting energy. This style forces to stay here and enjoy every moment of our being.

Even my family said it looked truly luxurious and this house might be a museum in the future. There are many historical things inside! Well, I’d like to admit my favorite Adirondack chairs. They look very nice with my current design. I found them on the Internet and they delivered them directly here, to my house. They are created for family cozy evening, when everyone’s thoughts are open like a book. There is no place for closed feelings. In addition, my Adirindack chairs are made from natural materials, in my case from cedar. For me, it’s very important, I don’t want to have plastic things around me. If you lack of money you can purchase cheaper one’s, which is not from wood, but also look nice with good quality. They were constructed well and it was declared they would remain the same in any conditions. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to test them under the rain. I hope that nothing can happen to them, because they are waterproof.

My friends often visit me at weekends and this time and I hope they would feel comfortable in such a relaxing atmosphere with marvelous Adirindack chairs.

Last year we had a BBQ party here and it took several days to get everything ready. My friend, a good website builder from the city, and I had to make the food, clean the house and put up the decorations. Oh yes, everything was perfect – the buffet, the music and the decorations. We sang and danced to the music all night long. If they liked my previous design, this one they would definitely love more.

Finally, today Adirindack style and its chairs are accented by the naturalness and majestic forms. Still, attract the attention of many designers around the world. So it’s easy to have a cozy interior and stay fashion at the same time.

So I am going to have a party next  week and I’m sure it’s going to be a great memory for all of us!

Tell me how you prepare for the party? I am waiting for your replies.

Which Baby Monitor to Buy?

What a wonderful day! I’ve got something special and I feel so happy. Last month I bought a Wifi baby monitor with the app, but it was lost somewhere on the way. And finally, they delivered it. First of all, it’s not just simple camera, it was created to monitor the baby’s movements. I spend some time researching and choosing the right one, but it was worth it! Now I am holding it in my hands and don’t know what to with it. “Open the box”, said my inner voice. Sometimes he (she) talks to me. Oh, please don’t think I am crazy mum. I don’t have any mental problems.

So after my box was checked, I started my preparation. I came into the room, looked around. Where I can install it? To be honest, I didn’t think much and put it to upper corner of the room.

I followed all the instructions and installed program to my smartphone. So everything’s already on the place and now I can I keep an eye on baby.  You might think it’s difficult to understand how to use it, but believe me it’s easy and doesn’t require from you to be a guru.  If I could do it, so can you.

My little son makes me smile from ear to ear every day and being far from home can be challenging. I don’t want to leave him even for a moment. With ComfortCam I don’t feel so lonely; I can monitor him from my office. I just feel grateful for this wonderful invention. It brings my family lots of joy and happiness. We don’t know how we could cope without ComfortCam before. It’s hard to explain our usual day without monitoring my son.

If you are considering a camera, which will monitor your baby, then ComfortCam might be right decision for that.

Buying A Property In Vancouver? Here’s What You Need To Know

A good friend of mine has been in contact with a really trustworthy Vancouver Realtor, who has been telling her about all sorts of Burnaby condos for sale. My friend is really confident about her decision, and she can’t wait to buy one of those condos. She is even thinking of checking out another one from Coal Harbour Condos for sale. She’s fairly certain that it’s going to happen. I really trust the realtor, and I trust my friend too, but that doesn’t mean that I think it’s necessarily very good idea right now. But I’m just not the kind of person who invests in things or takes risks financially.

Honestly, the potential rewards of investing in the city like Vancouver right now are huge. I’m not denying that. Property prices have been on the rise for a like, a really long time now, and they don’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. However, the best thing to do would be to invest in a time machine and buy some property 5, 10, 20, or more years ago. In those days, property was dirt cheap, and now even a tear down a lot in east Vancouver is selling for multiple millions of dollars. Can you imagine that? A house that you’re just going to have to invest in tearing down is selling for literally millions of dollars. The world is wacky.

Anyway, I’m not saying that investing is a bad idea. I just thought about it a lot and I discussed it with my family, and close friends, and I just think that investing in real estate is a little too volatile for me. If I were to spend Millions on a property, and take out such a substantial mortgage, and then property prices plummeted, what would I do? Do you wait it out, how do you sleep at night? I guess those are the kind of questions I ask myself, and that’s why I don’t think I would be a very good real estate investor. So, I will say, right now my friend is having the time of her life. Different Strokes for different folks!

Bic Mac’s for EVERYONE!

Well, helloooo! Is it the weekend yet? Just kidding! I hope you all got some good, long runs in this weekend (especially if you’re some where that had this beautiful weather) because I did not. Not 1 run. Notta. Didn’t even snowboard. I did however get in a 7.5 mile run during my lunch on Friday and another 2.5 at the gym after work and I guess I just decided that was good enough for a couple of days. I finished the run (7.5) in right under an hour, which was a faster pace than I anticipated. By the way, my race is in about 2.5 weeks and I have not run more than 8 consecutive miles in 2014…so things are really looking good for that.

Spring Running Clothes are Here!!

I woke up today with a super, super sore calf so logically I went out and ran 4.5 easy miles. I came home and did a lot of foam rolling and stretching. I don’t have anything calf specific as far as foam rolling goes, so I just used what I had and hoped for the best! It’s still pretty sore, so instead of going out for another run (which was my original plan) I opted for an at home workout from the Sarah Fit book. I pretty much just mashed about 3 workouts into one and skipped the ones that made my calf hurt. I also gave myself a nice little pat on the back for getting in some strength training. These arms are looking prettyyyy ripped. Just kidding, I can barely lift a piece of paper.

Snow on April 27 – WHY!

Lately, I haven’t been minding Monday’s as much as usual because I have a lot of stuff going on (traveling wise) and they are somehow the day’s that I get the most done. However, a Monday during the last week of April when I wake up and there are inches of snow on the ground is not my favorite thing in the world. Talk about a buzz kill. Luckily the rest of the week is supposed to gradually get nicer and eventually end in Spring-like weather. Now to cross my fingers that it actually sticks around this time.

I had a pretty uneventful weekend given the amount of rain/snow/ice we were getting. Saturday morning I woke up and laid in bed all morning reading my book (finally finished Divergent) and I did not mind it one bit. The afternoon was spent car shopping (in the rain) and then a quick pizza and salad dinner at an Italian restaurant near the house. The rest of the evening was spent reading and watching TV. Told you, very uneventful :)

 

Sunday was supposed to be as gross as Saturday, but I lucked out and got out early enough to beat the snow. I went into town and did my own little version of a hill run. I did a 5ish  mile loop that ended up being around a 900ft elevation climb overall. I found a 1.5 mile loop that climbed and then had a really nice downhill (I wanted the downhills for my upcoming race). Right after I finished my run, it started snowing and continued to do so until my drive into work today. Yayy. I took a detour for a quick rest after one of the hills and found this neighborhood I never knew existed. I could live there. Yep.

 

I conveniently ended my run next to the bookstore on Main Street so I could pick up some goodies.

Books not sold on Amazon are really expensive, for anyone not aware. Probably just me.  But I couldn’t resist, the bookstore atmosphere is awesome and I hadn’t been in one in a really long time. I’d say it was worth it (kind of:))

Although the weather slightly made this Monday morning a downer, I stopped by the grocery store on my way to work to pick up some fruit for the day and LOOK WHAT I FOUND! 2 packs of Halo’s!

I sincerely hope someone was promoted for this genius idea.

Today’s planned run is an easy but longer run. During my morning routine of watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, I threw in a little bit of stretching and core work. There has been a significant drop in my workout routine that is anything but running since ending my gym membership so I am trying really hard to get back into a routine that includes it again. I have a few random P90x cds that I hope can help me out.
