Updates: August 12 – 18

Spread the love

CF and I just returned from the (hot) Okanagan, so the update is a little late this week. Our netbook decided to crap out and stop booting up yesterday, so I had to wait until we returned home! We had a decadent weekend with lots of good food and fine wine. One of the advantages of living a simpler life is that these times when we do treat ourselves, it seems even that much more extravagant. Now it’s back to a cooler Vancouver climate and a day of housework and relaxation before heading back to work. Where have you gotten away to this summer?



Some of our favorite posts this week:

  • The path to financial independence can be quite exciting – starting with the first time you pay off a debt, or invest in the stock market. We’re trying to reach that end goal; Mr. Money Mustache reminds us that the end is quite a bit more boring than we make it out to be. Check out “What it Feels Like to Become Rich”

    Weather was pretty warm in Vancouver too this past week. At least there’s AC where I work. Looks like you guys had fun 🙂 I haven’t gone anywhere yet this summer but might plan something later in September. Thanks for the mention.

      I thought it was going to be cooler here today, but it’s actually pretty warm in my apartment today. Guess we’re in for a bit more summer yet…

  2. Thanks for mentioning my post. Sounds like you had a great time in the Okanagan. I always like heading over there, especially Penticton. I haven’t done much traveling this summer, but I did drive out to Grand Forks last month.

      It’s an easy place to get away to, with enough differences in climate to make you think you’ve gone somewhere far. It was insanely hot yesterday near Osoyoos. Happy to be home though.

  3. I want to go to the Okanagan! My parents just went and loved it.
