It is a rainy day here finally! It is a nice change.
Yesterday in the afternoon. Makaiya and I setup an obstical course. it was very fun for both of us. First we had to run through a SL course, then jump over sticks forwars, then backward then sideways(bothways), then diagnally. next to another diagnal jumping station, and finally a forward roll through a hoop. Chrissy and Makaiya even went through it! Makaiya improved with speed and technique every time she went through it! I was very proud of her.
It was also my Birthday yesterday! Had a small party and ater lots of cake.
Well, time for work.

Yesterday was another hot day in Kelowna. We did a little work around the house, mowed the lawn, vacumed the house and so on. Then we went for a walk with Makaiya, Bandit and my mom. We went to a trail called the Green way! It is a walking , biking horse back riding trail. It follows Mission creek and I believe is around
20 km long. I great place for exercise. Makaiya and I splashed around in the water for a little while.
Chrissy and I went to a Mexican party last night! There was Mexixan food, drinks and games! They also had a penyata. It hangs from a tree and you try to smash it open. There was chocolate and condons inside. It was fun!
I hope you all had a geat weekend too!

How are you weeks going?
Mine has been busy so far! We are taking care of Chrissy's sisters dog for a while. We have been running together in the mornings before work. It is fun to have him to run with! I think he will be with us for a while. The kids like having him around. His name is Bandit,
More later! Have a great day!

What a great weekend! And a bad weekend! My cousin came to Kelowna from Vancouver for a golf weekend. He ended up breaking his ankle just before we played the first game! I felt so bad for him. Since he already paid for his golf tour he gave the rounds to me! So I was able to play Preditor Ridge golf club Saturday and Sunday. It is a very beautiful place. They plated The Skins Game there a few years a ago. Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickilson, I think VJ and Mike Wier played. It was a very difficult course! The greens were very difficult, fast and lots of different angles, the fairways at times very thin. I shot 94 both days! I had way too many 3 putts. I even had a 5 putt. It was the toughest course I have ever played! Very enjoyable though.

It rained finally last night! It has been so clear and hot for the last month and a half.
I thought I would show you the underground spinkler sytem at our house. It is very convenient. It even has a timing system to when they come on. Yes, they come on automatically. Miho told me they do not have any in Japan so I thought you all might think they are interesting!
Have a great day!
Oh, I have been getting up a little earlier than usual and am running before work! I like it! It starts my day right! When I wake up my first thought is to stay in bed but I get up and leave the house, right away. I start slow and as my body warms up I increase my pace. I stretch as soon as I return home. I am also doing my nightly situps still. Usually after Makaiya goes to bed. My life style is busy but I am using what time I have improve my life! I look at what my weak points are and push myself to strengthen them. I feel great! I hope you all can do the same in Ski racing and life. Lets move forward together, or as the slang is said lets kick ass!
PS My other weak point was writing my diary! I hope you are enjoying it!

The picture is of the Channel that runs from Okangan lake into Skaha lake. This Channel runs trough part of Penticton! Makaiya and thier daugther Sophia played all afternoon!

Bye for now!

It was another hot day here in Kelowna! I finished the kitchen I told you about yesterday! It looked great! It is very fun putting them together and seeing the final result!
I had dinner tonight with my mom and brother. My mom is selling her condo. It is a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and full kitchen. It also has a pool and underground parking.
She is selling it for $144 900! It must seem very cheap for you guys in Japan. If anyone wants to buy here in Kelowna please let me know!
Thats all for now!

I have been installing Cabinets every day so far. I will take a picture of what I have installed tomorrow!
I played 9 holes of golf yesterday. I shot 36 on a par 32 course. Not bad! I played with my dad, brother and his father inlaw. Yes, I beat them this time. On Tuesday and Wedensday It cost $12 only to play 9 holes. Hopefully we will do this every week.
Makaiya washed her fisrt plate on her own this morning. She liked it. She can do my dishes any time! Hee Hee! She is so good!
I just finished 105 situps! I hope you are all doing your nightly situps. As well as any other areas you personally need to work on. Good Luck! You can do it.

I had a great Sunday! Cleaned up my garage and took a huge load of junk to the Kelowna ciyu dump. It cost $6. Very cheap and easy to get rip of garbage in Kelowna compared to Japan!
I then went to the Beach with my family including my dad. Then we had a big dinner at Chrissy's parents house. Very fun!
Have a good weekend
