Fotoless Friday – A moment

Ever have those moments? You know, those moments when the stars align and everything seems perfect, if only for a moment? I had one of those last night.

It was after little Munchkin went to bed, I was in the greenhouse moving some herbs into a larger pot. The air was cool, and fresh from the rain. Outside, it was calm – a pleasant change after the vigourous winds of the afternoon, which were just as rushed as the people bustling here, there, everywhere.

Pitter patter went the rain on the roof, a soothing melody as I worked the dirt. The earthy smell filled me up and I felt a sudden urge to take off my shoes and plunge my feet into the soil, to feel it between my toes.

At that moment, I was at peace.

Because SUMMER!

Ah, May long weekend 🙂 The un-official start of summer and the sign that it’s time to plant the garden outside. Time for gardening, camping, fishing and generally enjoying the outdoors without a million layers 😉

I meant to post this on Friday, at the start of ‘summer’, but summer got in the way. Because, you know, SUMMER!

This was my start to summer, after work sangria with awesome coworkers! In a KING jar, no less.

April lunchtime stroll

Spring this year has been sporadic – one day it’s sunny, warm and fantastic; the next, snowy, blowy and cold. Did you see the joke going around, the ‘Failed to install spring, spring is not available in your country”? That about sums it up. So when it was a sunny, warm day I just had to get out of the office and enjoy some natural Vitamin D. Here are some of the pictures I took with my new cell phone (that’s a whole other story!).

From the downtown side of the High Level Bridge, looking towards my alma mater (University of Alberta).

After crossing the bridge, I headed down towards the river and was intrigued by my new perspective. I really like the lines in this one.

I met this little guy in the river valley. I think he thought I was going to give him a treat!

This shot was from the pedestrian walkway underneath the LRT bridge. I’ve been on that bridge when there were so many people on it, it was swinging! It was steady that day, thankfully 🙂

From the end loop of the LRT bridge, looking back at two Canada geese enjoying the open water.
