Frosty December

All photos taken on December 22, 2022.

It has been a weird winter, so far. Lots of snow and freezing temperatures from early November. More cloudy days than sunny and even snow when the temperatures were down as low as -39C (38.2 below F). Couple that with a few bouts of freezing rain and unusual patches of humidity on driveways and walks and you have what would pass for a normal winter around these parts. Expect the unexpected.

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. Thanks Lyssy. There have been a couple of Christmases over the last 30 years where we had brown Christmases. One year, it was +13C and our kids were driving remote control vehicles out on the street. But normally, there is no problem getting a white Christmas. Thanks for reading. Have a great Friday.

    1. You are so right Maggie. I thought it was just me, but the unusual humidity this winter is making the days feel colder. Snow is disappearing slowly, but still a ways to go. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Cloudy here right now. Hope for some sun & +7 tomorrow. That anniversary heart is a constant source of entertainment. We have it hanging just outside our family room window, so we can see it. Thanks for reading. Hope you can enjoy your weekend. Allan
