Awesome productive day | Canada

Being back in the city meant getting some errands done. I picked up my camera from the camera store – I was getting the sensor cleaned and I swear, it feels that they did nothing beside messing with all of my settings. We got new batteries for our nice watches: they had died during their prolonged storage. Travis replaced his over-worn t-shirts.

Really though, that’s pretty boring stuff. The highlight of the day? The good stuff? We got an apartment in Kelowna! Yay!

A little while back we decided to switch our apartment hunting strategy. Originally we were looking at roommates or basements suites – things we felt would be OK to be temporary. The thing is, these were not cheap, and nobody was interested in renting a room to a couple. A few days ago Travis started to look at plain old, regular apartments instead: this was a good move. Before: far away from the downtown core, few options available. Then: right downtown, and loads of option. Surprisingly, the cost of total privacy isn’t all that much more from a share apartment, so we got really excited about the new prospects. We applied for an apartment, and today we learned that we got the place!

It’s totally perfect for us: lease is month-to-month, it’s a few blocks walking distance from the downtown core and two blocks from the beach. We’re so excited! And it gets even better: they have a few suites available, so when we land in Kelowna on May 1st we get to look at a few options and chose the one we prefer. How awesome is that?

We celebrated with some tasty lamb and veggies on the BBQ. Thanks mom!

bbq weather!

    Magalie–

    I recently got into microphotography and quickly learned that our sensor was covered in dust we normally didn’t notice (shooting at f/32+ makes it super obvious). I picked up a cleaning kit from Copper Hill a few weeks back. It is fantastic.

    It is so easy to do that you’ll be laughing at yourself for having thought it was scary or hard or dangerous. Our sensor is totally pristine now, and I’ve done a few other digital cameras too!

      Thanks for the tip! I think I have dust in my lens though (under the glass), which makes me feel as though the sensor cleaning did nothing. Not sure how to fix that without having to spend a fortune!
