September 23, 2014 Autumn Evening

It was a beautiful fall evening.  We had hoped to have more time to explore Whitemud Creek Ravine Park but we ended up working later than expected.  
We got take-out A & W and sat here to eat our supper.  Then we went for a long walk.
Gorgeous Autumn way to end a long work day!

September 15-19, 2014 Canyon, BC Visit

I made a trip to Canyon BC to visit my sister Jo and her family.  I think Autumn is a most beautiful season to go for a long, long drive.  I did not stop along the way to take pictures because I probably would have had to have another week at least!  The colours through the foothills and mountains were astounding. 

There are many delights to be found on Jo and Jeremy's beautiful place "The Shire"

The picture below is what you see from their back yard.

I love all the animals just roaming around in a natural setting.

Keeper of the sheep:  Dolly Llama

Jasper the very funny dog!

Lunch and Wine-Tasting at a local Winery and Orchard

Are you sure we're not in Italy?

Always good to go for a walk after all that delicious food!

September 8, 2014 SNOW!

I walked outside early this morning to take a picture of this... in my bare feet!  
I am resisting this 'ARE YOU KIDDING ME?' joke.

We didn't get as much snow as some locations in our province,
 but my succulent DAHLINGS are Frrrrreeezing!

there's beauty to be found too!

"How many lessons of faith and beauty we should lose, 
if there were no winter in our year!" 
~Thomas Wentworth Higginson, 1861
