Summer Scents

All photos taken on July 16, 2022.

As long as I can remember, there have been certain summer scents that can take me back to a place far away and a time long ago. While I have not always lived in the country, some of the scents from my days on the farm still take me back. The smell of a wintry, cold day (no smell at all really), the stench of the barnyard in spring (not always my favourite smell or even close), the smell of wet earth after a hard rain, the smell of a warm fall day and so on.

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. Everyone has a favourite summer scent. Thanks for sharing yours Lyssy. Yes, the smell of a charcoal grill still does it for me, even though we now use NG. Thanks for reading. Allan
