Beautiful days are ahead

A day spent with two of my loves – my daughter and grandson. And a lovely walk tonight on my own enjoying the peace and solitude. A perfect day.

It’s okay to relax

Last night, I decided to break one of my rules of isolation, and had my best friend over for a home cooked meal, some wine, enjoyable conversation and even threw in a game of Tri-Bonds! It was just what we both needed – a night of normalcy during these times.

Pork chops with garlic mushrooms, glazed apples, potato salad and pea and edamame salad. I can only take credit for the pork chops, mushrooms and apples!

I’m off today and tomorrow, so today I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice long walk, sat in the sun for a bit, and then headed over to a lovely bakery close by for a decadent afternoon treat!

Love the sound of the creek
Sitting on the porch, doing some research and enjoying the amazing sunshine!
A lemon lavender tart with blueberries hidden at the bottom – a perfect afternoon treat! and so yummy!

What do you do to treat yourself on a beautiful relaxing day off?

An evening walk

I have recently moved to a new area and decided to take a walk to discover the area. Well it turns out I have been missing out all week on an absolutely GORGEOUS view of the valley! Enjoy!

The very steep stairs down to the park – and then you have to walk down a hill from there!
The steep road going down to where I will be working – good leg muscles are coming!
The beautiful cemetery at the end of the road.
I can’t wait for the autumn colours to come out!

Making memories

Well my time in my hometown is coming to an end, again. I have moved back here a few times over my adult life, and again I am moving on in a month. I am so grateful to have been able to reconnect with old high school friends, make some new friends along the way, and be with my family over the past 3 years-ish. I will miss Welland but I am not going too far this time so I will be back often for visits. In the meantime, I will enjoy the lovely park beside near me, and enjoy the time I have left here.

Time for myself

Some days, I just need to go off, and spend time on my own. Today was one of those days. I don’t usually need more than an hour away from everything just to settle my mind, breathe deeply, and enjoy my quiet time. I was thinking of how quickly my time is coming to move from my hometown to just down the highway a bit, to be closer to my daughter and soon to be grandson! It’s quickly coming and I am excited for another new chapter in my life. For now, I will take the time I need to re-energize and to enjoy my last month here.
