Women In Aviation – Waterloo

I was really hoping the weather was going to be decent on Tuesday, so I could fly to the Women in Aviation event I was asked to be part of at the Waterloo Airport.  Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.  I got there after about two hours of driving.  It would have been a little sooner but my GPS kinda led me astray!Once there, I recognized a few people I met at the event last year, when I took three girls up for their first flight.  I was the only one there that wasn’t in an aviation-related career.

 

We were part of a talk show, in which the host asked each of us questions, then we had questions from the audience for the second half.  I think there were around 30 people in the audience.  It was really inspiring to listen to what the women next to me did for a living, including an air traffic controller, Air Canada pilot and Mission System Engineer.  Needless to say, I was just a tad envious.  I’m certainly not in the career I dreamed of and went to university for four years, plus a year of college, but I still have a great job and life is pretty darn good.  My hobby is kinda nice, too!I’m looking forward to getting a copy of the video of the event.  I’ll post in in my video section once I have it in my paws.

Keeping with the aviation theme – I was looking through an aviation magazine the other day and spotted a pic of my cute little plane, parked at the Gathering of the Classics in Edenvale event last summer.  Top row, second from the right:

It’s kinda hard to tell, as the picture is blurry, but Vyctor is by far the cutest plane there!

Speaking of cute planes, check out this amazing vase I found in Shopper’s Drug Mart the other day.  I went out and bought some flowers for it, and my little mother made this shnazzy arrangement:

When she sent the picture to me, I believe she wrote “God, you’re a dork!”  Yup!  Can’t argue with that one.

I just started the second book of a series I’m reading.  Really enjoyed the first book (Outlander), by Diana Gabaldon.  Mya is going to help me with book two:

Well, I thought she was going to read it with me, but she conked out when I told her I was going to read for a bit:

Meanwhile, Boo was raring to go:

I finally won something on Tim Hortons Roll Up the Rim:

I’ve only had four or five coffees since it started, so I can’t really complain.  Kinda wish it said I won the Corolla, but the coffee will be yummy.

Today’s symptoms: Really bad headache today, but my energy level was fairly decent.  The aches and pains were quite tolerable too.  Boo-yah!
