back to city life

Hours out of the city, up in Whistler relaxing with my child was exactly the holiday and rest needed for the both of us. We strolled through the Village center and wandered through stores like the Lush, Gap, Cows, Chocolate Houses, Jewlery Cabinets, Art Exhibits and every tourist store we came upon. Ate sushi for lunch and picked up groceries earlier so the condo fridge was stocked with snacks and supplies.

We went to see the new movie March of the Penguins and it was spectacular. Narrated by Morgan Freedman who has the most lovely voice, the movie/documentary was riveting.

I've cut and pasted this from the Official Website:

Each winter, alone in the pitiless ice deserts of Antarctica, deep in the most inhospitable terrain on Earth, a truly remarkable journey takes place as it has done for millennia. Emperor penguins in their thousands abandon the deep blue security of their ocean home and clamber onto the frozen ice to begin their long journey into a region so bleak, so extreme, it supports no other wildlife at this time of year. In single file, the penguins march blinded by blizzards, buffeted by gale force winds. Resolute, indomitable, driven by the overpowering urge to reproduce, to assure the survival of the species.

Guided by instinct, by the otherworldly radiance of the Southern Cross, they head unerringly for their traditional breeding ground where - after a ritual courtship of intricate dances and delicate maneuvering, accompanied by a cacophony of ecstatic song - they will pair off into monogamous couples and mate.... more on the website along with a great trailer

Penguins are monogamous birds, but only for a mating season and so each year when they look for a partner, they look to a new penguin. How cool is it, that once they mate, and the process is complete then the next year when they begin again to look for new companionship and another to have a baby with, they look to and search out a new penguin? What a story the penguins have, one that you should check out for yourself, it's a National Geographic feature film as well.

Last night we sat for over half an hour in an outdoor hot tub and watched the sunset together before retiring to the condo to watch a rental movie and eat Haagen Daaz Mango Sorbet a whole 500ml of it. Then late this afternoon after more time at Blackcomb children's zone, a couple of luge rides and packing up the car we finally headed back down the Sea to Sky highway only to return to Vancouver and our quiet little home life.

But before getting home it would be only fitting that my new tire runs over a nail and gets a flat, my second flat tire in less than a week and no I'm not joking. Off child and I drove to the wheel store to have them repair my tire and remembering me from last week found my demise amusing and quickly fixed our problem.

My daughter is in my bed right now sleeping and tomorrow she leaves to vacation with her father for a period of time. Right now, I'm playing catch up in front of the computer as being away from internet access has put me with a back log in my in box.

on holidays

In a few short hours I will be off with my daughter for 3 days of holidays in a centrally located rental condo in the heart of Whistler. Taking a break from everything to spend time with my daughter before school goes back in a few weeks is just what her and I both need.

This is time that I'm really looking forward to, alone time with my daughter and all I have to concentrate on is being a mother. Let me tell you about my not so little, little girl... (whose 11 years old)

she is beautiful, smart and fun
she is bright & inquisitive
she is creative & compassionate
she is liked by many and loved by many
she is quiet & a reader
she is strong, determined and resourceful
she is not like me all that much and yet, she is obviously my daughter

Our time will be spent sleeping in the same bed, holding hands, talking, napping, watching movies, shopping, eating, scooter riding, hot tubbing, getting massages, walking and relaxing.

My world here at home is very fast paced due to my activism & work and as much as I try to shelter my daughter from this stuff just by virtue of the fact that we live in the city our lives remain hectic. The opportunity to go away where no one has a phone number for me, there is no internet access in our condo so email will be checked only once daily and it's my hope to run it to NO ONE that I know. I want to be mom, my daughters mother only for this whole trip and leave my other worlds and stress behind.

wish us well...

my daughters mothers

dungeon floor

Last night I had a blast playing with this luscious woman at Sin City. Using pink hemp rope, I tied her hands behind her back and put her on her knees on the dungeon floor. We laughed, shouted, yelled and got sexy with one another, me with the advantage of course, being on Top, standing and having my hands free to roam and use her. My mouth to bite and nibble on her flesh and my hands to grab, slap and manipulate her to my whim.

L has the most amazing breasts, the kind made for nuzzling and slapping and a face that gives away what she's feeling immediately as her expressions are beautiful and the type that make you gasp just to watch. Suffice to say that we had much fun together. So much fun in fact, that Sunday on my way to her home for a BBQ I stopped off at the local pharmacy to get her some topical anesthetic to make the abrasions on her breasts feel better. It's good as a Top to look after those who bottom to me, I find it keeps them coming back for more over and over again.

I'd tell you more about what I did with L. except that both her and I believe that if you were meant to see our play together, then you should have been at Sin City in the public dungeon watching.

What fun to be exhibitionistic, when there are voyeurs around!

who plans on doing L again, if she'll say yes
