Blue & White Day

All photos taken February 25, 2022.

As the winter weather dragged on, we got less and less interested in trying local walks along icy paths. Having purchased some new nanoSpikes from MEC, we set off this day on a route along the North city boundary to give them a try. The temperature was about -7 and the wind, which always seemed in our face, whichever way we turned (Blowmont) made it feel colder then the view out our window had indicated.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. I hear you on the walking conditions. Even today we were crashing around in snow banks and mud. Love love the blue skies! And of course that barn. Pretty sure you’ve posted photos of it before. Bernie

    1. We are sure appreciating the flat drier terrain these days. Walking on nanospikes keeps you upright, but it does throw your stride off and when your feet are as old as mine, you feel it. We are supposed to get a bunch of rain (and maybe some snow) today and tomorrow. We could use the wet, but not the white. The blue skies were amazing that day. The barn has been in a couple of times. It is just so pretty. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan
