As I step into this new year, I feel my effort can be better spent by using InstaGram’s built in features of Stories. Starting today, you’ll start seeing updates of where I’m at and what I’m doing, a quicker way of keeping you in the know, and an easier way for me to keep track of where I’ve been!
Any helpful feedback is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new adventure, one that has encouraged me to get out more and show off my beautiful town, and hopefully, maybe someday, the world!
HI I’m Raven, I just got back from Random Acts of Costuming, where we cheered up some kids and some people, I put on my best smile, and now without any further ado, here is SarahTonin’s Exploration Update for the Month of September. Teen Titans GO!
Didn’t go many places, but we did make some delicious shish
kabobs and had a corn feast, which if you see there, I’ve taken two slices of tomato
and slathered them on the corn. (This to be done after normal condiments
applied, butter, salt and pepper) That’s how you do it RIGHT!
Saw this spectacular sunrise, peeking out from behind a fire
Snapped a few shots of this excellent sunset on the way back
Went camping, made some camp food! Yes, Omelets ARE camp
And I thought I’d end it on a funny note. Why can’t you
Trust an Artist? Because….They’re Shady! They’re Sketchy! AND they might try
to Frame you! Have a great week guys and hopefully I’ll explore way more things this month however as
the winter months set in, I tend to bunker down and hibernate…and wait for
the cold to go away! So you may see me venture out, once in a while, but expect
to see more updates in regards to Tutorials, and other such likes! Stay Tuned!
Tucked away in Naramata, the breathtaking views of this little gem make your dinner experience a real treat! Tapas style, these dishes are meant to order 4 or more if a couple is to enjoy a full meal. Prices range from 5-20 a dish.
Ordered a wrap, however, the description was misleading and I ended up with a sushi ‘wrap’. While still delicious, I feel the board could be re-written to prevent confusion.
The ingredients were the finest I’ve tasted in a long time, spinach, carrot, and teriyaki beef in a mix of white and wild rice, all wrapped and a above par piece of seaweed! While I won’t be frequenting this place as the prices are high, I know where to get a excellent quality meal.
My vehicle went in for a tire change, and came out with a scrape. I felt bad bringing it up, they’ve always been so good to me. They booked me in after verifying they made the damage. I then managed to miss the first appointment, a scheduling error on my part, however, they re-booked me in! As I dropped it off, I again stressed which scratch was theirs and which was mine. Picking it up today, they not ONLY fixed their scrape, they fixed the other two scratches which had been made earlier in the year. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude, and can’t begin to express how kind and caring they are. Thank you for the customer service and care you provide, please keep up the good work!

Friendly staff who take the time to learn about you and remember you as you walk through the door. Prompt driver services if you have to leave your vehicle for any lengthy or short repairs.
An out of the way hole in the wall, this place is worth following the arrows to find it! A pleasant atmosphere, complete with BIG screen TV’s making it the perfect place to gather and watch the game! However, the seating arrangements provide enough privacy between booths that you and your dad can still just grab a beer or drinks with the girls and discuss good times without pestering other patrons or yelling over-top of others!
Expect insane prices and small portions as this place is all about providing you a ritzy atmosphere with girls in tight skirts and good looking guys in ties as you gaze out onto the expensive yachts – it is a Yacht Club after all. Service is excellent, however, 13 dollars for a glass of wine makes the whole meal taste sour.
Princess Leia made an appearance at Quest Martial Art’s Academy’s‘Spar Wars’. These guys create a safe environment for those who enjoy fighting, and prompt students to better themselves. The teachers are witty, funny, caring and down to earth, so know that you or your child/teenager will be getting excellent care.
Headed out to Vernon on the weekend for May the 4th Celebrations, Vernon hosted a Comic-Con! Ran into the 501st, and immediately asked Vader if it was a lady under there, and to my pleasant surprise, a lady’s voice replied! I met her last year, there is only one lady who troops as Darth Vader, the force truly is strong with this one! Coupled with her husband dressed as Boba Fett, the two make an intimidating and awe inspiring moment for those who are brave enough to face the Dark lord.
Stopped by Munin’s with the RWBY group for a specialty crafted coffee beer (SHHH don’t tell Uncle Crow!) then into Safeway to grab the makings of a pizza, a vegi platter and an already made Hawaiin pizza !
Headed out with the RAOC group a couple times this month to the Kelowna General Hospital, where we set out to provide special moments to children, and anyone else who we could make smile!
Alright! This is the second monthly update where I take you on a tour of where I’ve been outside of the game world! Any helpful feedback is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new adventure, one that I hope will encourage me to get out more and show off my beautiful town, and who knows, maybe someday, the world!
This month started with a stay-cation away from my full-time scheduling job, allowing me some time to put together some of the new features you’ll see throughout my pages. My twin sisters were in town for the first week of this, so I spent some time with them and the family.
Stopped by Mission Creek on my way home to find some smooth water washed rocks, meeting an adorable, patient, obedient puppy on the way out as the owner had asked it to sit on the rock outside the park to take a picture. Even though he wanted to jump off and come beg for a pat, he looked at me longingly instead and resigned to his fate – what a sweetheart!
Took mum out for Donairs at Subcity, always a treat!
Went up to Vernon to trim my trees, the honeysuckle was getting a bit out of hand!
Back to work, I snagged some views of the lake from the top floor.
Went with the RWBY Group to DUNNENZIES PIZZA AND PUB, where comedy night was in full swing, providing some easy going material for those looking to add to their gig! For more on that, check out RWBYBCCOSPLAYERS!
Not too much exploring this month, but I’ve been working on a few projects (with a bit of help from Kelly) I hope to share with you soon!
Peace out from Sarahtonin! – Check out my video update below!
-PS Next month I should have a better camera setup!
