Hot July

It’s not a new discovery or anything, but I really despise the heat of summer. I’d take a blizzard over +30s like it has been for a few days this week. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this overwhelmed by the temperature, I actually slept on my bedroom floor with Grace.

Some recent events: 
– I was made assistant manager at my workplace, which is cool because I’ve only been there a month so far. Must be doing something right!
– NunatuKavut received some amazing news regarding land claim agreements which I was so happy to have been witness to.
– Also NunatuKavut related, I got my salmon tags and am going fishing next weekend!
– My Avro has new tires and a gel seat cover so I’ve been enjoying more rides in the last couple weeks than I probably accomplished all last summer.
– I bought an aloe vera plant and it makes me happy just looking at it
– I decided I wanted to live life more minimalist so I spent a week going through all of my possessions and had a giant yard sale. I now have significantly more space, feel better, and made +$500!

That’s it for now. Here’s a few pictures from my recent excursions.

Love,

NunatuKavut

I’m not sure if I mentioned this in any other blog post, but I am a member of NunatuKavut, formerly named the Labrador Metis. I’m in the process of writing a research paper on NunatuKavut and I am looking for some direction. I’d like to know if any of you are familiar with the group – and if so, do you know of any resources (books, articles, recordings) that would help me out with my paper?

Shamefully, I don’t know a lot about this group that I belong to; but I can tell you one thing, and that’s what I do know I’m proud of.

I noticed today that I have 112 people following my blog via email. I wouldn’t have noticed that except I added the ‘follow blog via email’ widget today and was blown away! Thank you for following me.

I’m off to do a little research for this paper & come up with a topical outline for what I’m going to write. When it’s finished, I’ll upload a copy in a new page I will be titling “Works”.

Here are some links to stories I’ve written recently:
