Brewin' up trouble

Here's a picture of my new friends, the carboys of beer that I brewed with Evan. Well, to be honest, he did most of the work. Ryan is also involved financially in our venture of 100 large bottles of homebrewed beer - an enterprise we've dubbed "Dr. EvRy's." Don't think of it so much as beer, but as a prescription with numerous health benefits.

My recent beer brewing foray, I hope, will help me survive my upcoming year plus in the north. The clock is ticking on Iqaluit, because I've booked my ticket for July 2nd. I was freaked out about leaving so early for a bit, but I haven't been too terribly busy with other things lately (besides my job search), so I'm mostly packed and almost ready to go. It'll be a hectic couple of weeks until then, however.

Mainly, I've been working weekends, doing the Keep Cool campaign for Toronto Hydro and the Clean Air Foundation. Today I'm recovering from a hot weekend of working outside.

Oh, and before I forget - I'm hosting a going-away party Friday, June 29th. The bottles of Dr. EvRy's should be ready for drinking, and the porch is looking fantastic these days, so come on out!

You're freaked out about how to "survive" the year? Don't think of it as a jail sentence. On days when the sun shines it is the most beautiful place on earth. The water pooled on the bay ice is a tropical, aqua blue and the hills are a rich, warm brown. There is no smog in your lungs and lots of opportunity.

I don't think of it as a jail sentence! Not at all! (Even though I am applying for a job at a prison.)
