The “F” Word

All photos taken on August 2, 2022, during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows.

August 2 already and it has been decidedly cooler of late. But, not to worry, there is still plenty of summer left, right? Right? Our walk this date shows perhaps the “F” Word is closer than we think.

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. Amazingly, our fall weather and leaves have held on ,longer than usual. Still lots of colour on the trees and it was +25 C (77 F) here yesterday. Normal is about +15C (59 F). We will take it. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

    1. Absolutely crazy weather. 25 here yesterday and my neighbour’s roses started blooming. Boy are they in for a shock. I am raking a lot of fall off my lawn, so most trees are getting the message. Thanks for reading Bernie. Allan


  1. As we bid farewell to summer, autumn has started to show its face with cooler weather. The season is changing, nature is changing, we are changing; even the leaves on the trees are changing. I know that adapting to change is difficult for many people who find the transition from summer to autumn particularly hard. I think it’s because summer is often so full of plans and fall often isn’t. So, we can help with that mindset shift by identifying something to look forward to in this next season of life. Like setting new goals, embracing the downtime and taking the time to appreciate fall colours. As I was born in November, fall is my favourite time of the year. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Well said Aiva. Given how busy this summer and fall were, we are looking forward to things slowing down a bit. So glad fall is hanging on. Like you, Patty and I were born in November and it has always been our favourite season. Thanks for reading and your thoughts. Allan
