Are we home yet? Is the NBA championship "home" yet? I wrote almost all of this journal during our 90 minute ferry ride at the end of our journey from Kelowna on the mainland to our island home yesterday. Here we go.
 
I'll tell you, last evening was the aural equivalent of having my eyes just slightly crossed to make sense of one of those 3D posters that used to be everywhere a few decades ago. Except, instead of trying not to focus so we could see, we were endeavouring not to hear so we could later learn a basketball score!

And it's good-bye today to Kelowna, this city of 132,000 in the BC interior that counts among that number, two of my siblings and my dad. While the city itself is about 50% larger than Victoria, the Kelowna metropolitan area claims a population of around 200,000, making it the third-largest metro area in BC behind Vancouver and Victoria.

Hello from gorgeous Kelowna, BC, where Rob and I will stay another night before heading back to our island home. You know, it's funny, just from conversations I had last week, how many people think that Vancouver and Vancouver Island are one and the same; Vancouver being that giant city on the mainland, while Vancouver Island is...well, you know, an island. And that's the place we call home in the city of North Saanich (like sandwich without the D and W). But enough about home - let's be here now!

After arriving safely, and just as the Raptors game ended (One point! Really?), in Kelowna last night, Rob and I were reunited after 10 days apart! That's a long stretch for us. We bunked down in the guest suite at Dad's seniors' residence and look forward to two days here, departing on Thursday to make it back to the Sidney, BC area in time for our semi-monthly Rotary meeting.

Ahhhhhh...what a weekend! I don't even know where to start except at the beginning of it: flying into Ottawa on Thursday night and spending three amazing days with a certain little man and his parents.

IS IT FRIDAY YET? Ha! I'm not complaining, but, oh, it's been a week! One great, busy, wonderful week filled with hugs, laughter, tears and new friends. And, oh, yes, OLD FRIENDS. The best kind.
 
Like the friends we dined with on Wednesday before the Indigo event in rainy Kitchener. At a restaurant near the bookstore, we were joined by Rogers chief meteorologist Jill Taylor (left), my pal Lisa Brandt and, on the far right, afternoon host on CHYM in Kitchener, Adele Newton.

I'm going to pause in the midst of this week, this frenetic, joyous, travel-filled week, to look at a picture much bigger than the ones I've shared with you over the past few days.
 
Tomorrow I'll be back to bringing you special moments of meeting with people and sharing stories of love and friendship, of common bonds and new connections.

What a day, what a day. I'm writing to you between shows: we had a 2 pm performance of our Reclaiming Joy program at Markham Theatre yesterday. It went so well and I am so grateful.
 
This is me before the show and during rehearsal - feeling very zen and ready to go.

Welcome to Tuesday! I'm writing this on the way home from a fantastic event at Chapters in Mississauga last night hosted by Michelle Butterly, my longtime co-worker and friend from 98.1 CHFI

And here we are, back in Ontario! I guess I mean "we" in the royal sense, I suppose, as this time I'm traveling without Robbie. Wish me luck. As I mentioned last Friday, we may have a journal blip or two, but I'm sure it'll go well (gulp)!
