#tbt #19 – One Year Ago

Leave a comment Standard

This is really weird.

For #tbt I thought I’d look back in my photos to one year ago today. There was a photo of an old student on a field trip with a look of bliss because he had never been to the beach, and there were several other photos of schedules.

Summer schedules. Schedules for the outdoor summer flicks.

The weird thing is that I was doing the same thing today! Except instead of taking pictures of the schedules, Tina and I were emailing them to each other… Weird… Obviously I’m ready for summer!



tbt #11 – Happy Days Coming Soon

Comment 1 Standard

July 1st – 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, …. 1975.

Summer, freedom, sunshine, happiness, smiles, beaches, boats, friends, parties, Canada Day events, fireworks, water falls, bar-be-ques, picnics, love.

No alarm, no thinking, no deadlines, no disingenuous drivel, no mounds of paper, no BS.

Welcome spring 2014, and I look forward to your summer too. 🙂

It’s September and I’m Okay With It

There’s no denying summer goes fast every year, sadly of course. But I really can’t complain that today it is September. My summer has been full of amazing experiences and I got to cross many to-dos of my to-do list.

I’ve always lived where there are four explicit seasons (well, Alberta spring and fall are questionable). I’m not sure what it would be like having the same climate all year because I do love fall. I love the coolness in the air in the mornings and evenings; I don’t mind throwing on a light sweater. Fall for me is like New Year but the weather is better and it lasts longer. I’ve always looked forward to the start of a new school year. A ripple in the calendar year when new programs begin, when we pick up new clothes/supplies for the changing season, when many of us have a fresh start and a refreshed outlook thanks to time away at summer.

So enjoy your Labor Day weekend. And remember – along with fall also comes apple and pumpkin picking, changing colors and pumpkin beer! Cheers. 😉
