The Upside of Retirement

I am kidding! Retirement is the upside😂

Rainy Days

Back in the day, walking from my vehicle to my office on a rainy day brought a new level of misery to any day.

I just got back from my hour long morning walk (in the rain) with my somewhat damp and smelly dog. It was pure BLISS.

Rain or shine, I hope you are having a great day🤗

Weekend Wandering

Dan was working days this weekend so I spent a lot of time relaxing and wandering around with Kat. I wish summer would last forever!

Saturday afternoon – the weather Channel said Regina was sunny and clear🤷
Roaming along the storm channel behind O’Neil High School
Cattails along the storm channel
Busy blue skies
Elphinstone Street
Wild flowers
Ferns in a city park

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Just Like That!

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. Today – not so much. It is cold, windy and looking to rain later. We could use the rain. The cold and wind we could definitely do without.

Southern Saskatchewan has a tendency to be windy, but I do not remember winds like this. It goes on for days (and nights!) at a time. I left our bedroom window open last night and felt like I was going to get blown out of bed this morning. I went out and set our hanging planters on the ground again.  The plants in them just take too much of a beating when the wind is gusting in the 70k range.

It might be a good day to give Kat a bath. She is filthy and she does not look like she is too motivated to go for a walk any time soon.

Have a great day! I hope wherever you are, your weather is being kind to you today.

Summer in Saskatchewan

I know that winter does not officially begin for another month but I am ready for summer to return.

I am ready for walks in the park. Ready for the sunshine and the warm summer breezes.

I am ready for the blossoms that decorate our yard all summer long.

I am ready to wander, to find hidden ponds, to breath the clean fresh air of summer.

I am ready for deep blue skies and the fluffy white clouds of summer.

I am even ready for summer showers.

Only six more months until summer in Saskatchewan💖
