Super happy to get this shot - a rare opportunity for me as I'm usually at work when they go to school, and they don't always leave at the same time. (Plus, I happened to be outside on my way to an appointment. iPhone was handy, too!)
Another gorgeous fall day! High of 30C and the girls will be participating in the annual Terry Fox Walk this afternoon.
My work group (there are 4 of us) spent the day at one of our downtown offices. We went out for lunch and walked through the farmer's market to get there and back. What a gorgeous day for the market! It was good and busy.
Hello new routines. We've been adapting to new schedules and enjoying fantastic weather (better than before). Also, I've learned how awesome it is to start each week with the dishes done and a fridge full of food (prepared, not just groceries) ready for the week ahead... but haven't figured out how to accomplish anything else on top of it. Need to solve this problem soon!
P.S. I'm acutely aware of the time I spend on these daily photos, but I'm not willing to give it up. After all, I'm only doing a 365 project every 7 years, and this year is almost 3/4 over!
I've seen this balloon a few times this month in various places around the city. I was able to get a picture today when it went right over our house. Hot air balloons are always fun to see, aren't they?
Waiting for S to finish her ringette officials clinic, this one took advantage of a smooth parking lot and the scooter we had in the van, recently inherited from their cousin who has outgrown it. (Boy do I love having the iPhone camera in my pocket!) Also, we're having gorgeous weather! Today was fantastic (23C) and the forecast is for mid to high 20s all week.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a little better;
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is the meaning of success.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
