I got a phone call from Brian when he was driving home from work. I know that's against the law now, but if he hadn't called me there would've been another kind of distraction waiting for him :-) Anyway, he called to say the sunset was absolutely orange and could I see it from our house. I looked out the window and could barely see anything at all. So I ran down to the lake and watched an amazing Alberta sunset.... just look!
On my way home from the city yesterday I realized I still needed to take this picture. It's about 4 kms away from home but I never seem to have my camera when I really want it. So I dropped Faith off at home, grabbed my camera and went back and was pleased to finally take this picture. This is the first time in the 5 years we've been living here that there has been a pond in this location, as a matter of fact, last year it was completely dried up. I think it's important to stop and enjoy the beauty!
The trees are loaded... just starting to ripen. The harvest is going to be awesome. After picking and cleaning them I freeze them in 1 cup portions and they last all winter on cereals and in fruit smoothies and some rhubarb saskatoon crumbles.
Today Faith and I went out for a bit and got a small bucket full with so many nearly ready.
