Autumn’s Flying By

Photos taken on September 23 and 24, 2022.

I know autumn only started at 7:03 PM on September 22, 2022, but it seems to be flying by, as strong autumn winds sweep colour leaves from the trees and keep the Canada Geese grounded. It has not been a real treat for our bike riding adventures either. But, we did manage a walk to the lake on the 23rd and then retraced our route the next evening on bikes.

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 got a chuckle from the rush hour traffic. My sisters and I had a jeep that we had a blast in. I’m not a fan of the wind. We live in an older high rise and the creaks it makes in the wind is a little freaky, but I know it’s supposed to do that.

    1. Yeah, these kids were having a good time. We never had a Power Wheels, but our nephews and nieces did. So cool to see them pretend to be adults as they drive over your foot. The wind wears you out and here we are tonight, where is building in again to bring snow. Time to cozy up indoors. Creaky high rises are a bit unnerving to be sure. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan

    1. The wind was strong enough, juts like last night’s cold winter wind. The lake is manmade and surrounded by parkland, but a few homes have a view of it. When they built there, they dung good. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan
