Most people who know me know I have a wicked sense of humour and Christmas offers endless possibilities for fun. I gave my husband an iPad for Christmas ;-)
He opened it and didn't quite know what to do. So we opened a few more gifts and then I gave him the real deal & he was excited about that.

All the Moto babies have been put to bed for their winter nap in the moto lair and it's probably a good thing, as so far this December is beating cold temperatures and we have had a dusting if snow and are expecting more next week. So for now I am happily 4 wheeling and dressing in winter gear. I must also admit that I am really enjoying a warm car in the morning and not lugging 30 pounds of motorcycle gear and trying to defrost myself when I get to work.

I love those rare sunny crisp winter days when the sun is shining, and I am usually out walking an unenthusiastic puppy who would still rather be snoozing in a pile of pillows and blankets. The light was captivating and I happened to have my iPhone so was inspired to snap a few pics.

Today my daughter and I went to the Provincial Centoaph to pay our respects to all soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. We also pay our respects to those in the Canadian Armed Forces who are serving around the world to preserve our freedom. We also owe a debt to military families who bear the heaviest burden of lost loved ones and those who are stationed in far off places.
"Lest we forget"

Well it's time to say goodbye to Vixen! She was my first two wheeled Moto love and gave me the courage, zest, determination to get my motorcycle license. I sold her today in less than an hour of it being on Used Victoria.
I will miss her, but she deserves to be ridden and not sitting in a dark garage waiting and hoping to see the light of day and asphalt under her tires.
Vixy I hope your new owner treats you with kindness, gives you synthetic oil and treats you well on the road. XO sweet scoot!

Today we had a little weather change, there was no fog! It has been a very busy day for me today, I made the decision to go with 4 wheels for the winter instead of 2. I had the opportunity to snag a parking space at work, it equalled out to the same amount I would have paid for a bus pass, I opted for convenience and comfort.
After all the car stuff was sorted Pupzilla and I went for a stroll in Beacon Hill Park. It is alive with the fiery colours of fall and even on a cloudy day it's beautiful!
As I stepped out of the car I heard the strains of a bagpipe floating through the air. I am probably one of the few who actually like bagpipes, so I hunted the sound down. It was very cute when I was sitting listening this young lad walked up and was yelling above the pipe telling the gentleman to stop. We had a good laugh. Pupzilla wasn't too keen on it either.

I am not a big fan of fog or winter for that matter. Most of October had found us on the Island waking to fog and slogging through the day until bedtime if the grey sogginess of the day.

The seasons are rapidly changing here and we can not complain about our stellar summer we had. It was gorgeous, hot, and deliciously sunny for the entire summer. And yet I am having a hard time saying goodbye to summer. It was wonderful when I ventured out on the bike and not being cold.
After reaching Duncan and lunching with the family it was time to make my way home. Luckily the sun was out, but it was cold. I was layered up, but definitely need a little warming jacket like Trobairitz and Bob have, going to start saving for that baby.
There is a lovely little park area here and the trees were magnificently showing fall colours.
