Dog and Cat People

This video made me laugh a lot this week. Seriously, I laughed a lot.

We all know that there are two types of people in the world, Cat People and Dog People. And you can't be both, you are either one or the other. And generally you are loyal to your pet of choice and refuse to like the other kind of pet.

Which brings me to the time that my boyfriend (a dog person), got a cat. After weeks of looking at dogs, and researching dogs, and picking what type of dog he wanted to get, and drooling over dogs, and picking out what kind of truck he wanted that would be best for the dog, he got a cat.

And not even a cute kitten! A full out cat!

The best part of this cat-tail (see what I did there?), is that he kept the cat for 2 hours. Then called the guy he got it from and sent it back. At least he made a valiant attempt at being a cat person. Two hours is a long time to have a cat!

I like it Hot

Ok, so ya'll know that I love travelling, and doing/seeing super random things and over my Christmas Holidays I got to do just that - see AND do, something totally random. Something wonderful and highly recommended. This:

Ainsworth Hot Springs

Now, what you see here is just the tip of the iceberg of this wonderful, wonderful, hidden gem in the BC Kootenies. After a perilous, death-defying drive down 'a short-cut' (aka death-cut, seriously), we arrived at Ainsworth Hot Springs and our lovely on-the-lake condo.  The pool you see above is the warm-pool. There also was a cold pool (6 degrees for those of us willing to attempt a polar dip/mini-heart-attack before jumping into the) hot pool.

Now the cool thing about the hot pool, is that the hot mineral-filled water that naturally filters into it from the mountain, also flows through caves. Caves you can go into. Caves you can swim through.

Um, yes. WAY cool.

I love getting away. I love it. I love the drive, and the ferry, and the seeing of a new amazing thing that God has placed on this earth. I love napping and staying in my pajamas till noon. I love swimming, and watching too much tv, and singing loudly in the car. I love spending time away with people who make me happy. So good. I'm so thankful for my mini-vacation.
