It’s quite difficult to keep a blog going when you don’t really like to be on the computer. The kids and Stephen are in bed. It’s 9:55pm. I’ve started, deleted, and restarted writing this post several times now. We haven’t had reliable wireless internet in the last two campgrounds we’ve stayed at. Here’s a brief update in photos.
For the past 2 summers I have been in Canada for Zoey’s birthday. This year she really wanted to celebrate her birthday with her classmates before we left on our trip, so we had an early birthday celebration for her in June. She had another early celebration of her birthday last week. Seven more days until her actual birthday. She’s turning my favorite number.
It was rainy and cold today, although Stephen disagreed with me about the cold part. It was in the 60s I think which is cold for July for this Southern California girl. I am looking forward to a hot shower tomorrow morning in the campground bathroom. We have propane in our tanks because I can cook on the stove top just fine, but we have no hot water. I’ve taken one too many cold showers recently. Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?
We’re staying just outside of Victoria, British Columbia for three weeks. My summer Waldorf teacher training session ends July 19th. Three of my classmates were denied entry at the border, so I feel pretty lucky we didn’t have any problems getting across. It sounds like I may need to get a study permit/student visa for the next session in November even though it is only 1 week.
Tomorrow my day begins with a half-hour of singing at 7:30am, Math for grades 5 &6, Christology, Physics for grades 6, 7, 8, and our last class of the day is Eurythmy.

Have Steve light the hot water heater.

He thinks there may be a clog in the valve? Because we had hot water a week ago and we still have propane in our tanks.

There has to be something to lite the hot water heater. That could be a pilot light that is always running. If it went out it needs to be re-lit.
Out trailer has electric ignition. Instead of the pilot it lights on demand using the twelve volt system. There is a switch for water heater 12V that controls it. It needs to be on.

There is a switch but we still weren’t getting hot water when it was on. Last night the switch wasn’t on but we were able to get hot water. I’m not sure what is going on.

I have a good friend who lives in Victoria. She’s your age and we love to send people who are visiting on surprise trips into her store to give love from the states. Her name is Emily Kennedy and she manages Paradise Boutique on Johnson St! She’s your age and her husband and she live to hike and bike. Please pretty please go say hi!

I’ll look her shop up. I have 2 free weekends to explore so if I don’t make it there this weekend I’ll try next.
