A June Morning Walk

Hello! I took a walk this morning and here are some photos and videos of what I saw and heard. Following the last couple of days of rainfall, the countryside looks lush and green. The plants in my garden are growing enthusiastically and so are the weeds! Enjoy the evening ahead. – Lori

Tuesday Morning Hike – Mostly a Photo Blog

I had to visit the health centre in Hardisty anyway and near there, the Hardisty hiking trails begin, so that was a good excuse to bring along my water and hat and take a walk in the glorious spring sunshine. There’s another set of trails that start on the other side of town, too, near […]

Big Knife Provincial Park – A Photo Blog

A Snapshot of a Bug’s Life After our hike that day, we enjoyed tea and a snack at a picnic table in the 20 degree Celsius weather and a gusting wind at Big Knife Provincial Park. A tiny black bug, maybe a juvenile maple bug, made his way over the table’s smooth surface, which was […]

January Sunset Photos

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?

Whatever you are thinking right now, that’s what’s on your mind. Whatever has happened to you, it has already happened. The important question is, how are you going to […]

And So It Begins

Our first major storm of the season arrived last night and has continued merrily through the day. Now at around 4:00 p.m., it’s still blowing strong. It’s true. A lot of folks do think that the first winter storm blows. I used to, as well, but these days I work from home and enjoy (mostly) […]

No Country for Small Cars

I went out for a drive the other day finally alone and able to drive out to an old homestead I could see from the highway. Strangely, my passengers or drivers don’t always want to drive out to every broken down building we see off in the distance. They claim to need to “get somewhere” […]

Drums in the Woods – A Photo Blog

It’s cold and dreary here tonight — a perfect time to edit the photos I took a week ago when the weather was not cold and dreary. That day, I had planned to walk north of town, but a work crew had just sprayed a sealer on the roadway. It smelled terrible and was really […]
