Soft White Pieces of Frozen Water

Okay, I get it. I hear you. Everyone is tired of that four-letter word that starts with “s”. So, this week, I won’t share any of my thoughts about how great “it” is for the grass and the trees. I’ll keep my glass half full stuff to myself. It’s become a sensitive topic for Albertans who are enduring a seventh month of winter weather. I understand and I’ll say no more. Done. Zipped.

I will, however, share a few photos before all this marvellous whiteness (oops, sorry) disappears.

Or is that a sensitive topic too?

Foto Fur-iday – Walk with Us

Since they sprayed weed killer along the canal and T doesn’t want to walk us there for awhile, we’ve been exploring some new territory.

Ember is the company that looks after the gas wells around here and they make these nice little roads through the crops that we’ve been walking. Within Logan-distance, there are two, one to the south and one to the north.

We’re supposed to get some rain over the next few days which might make the canal walk safe for us again. That’ll be great for the hot days but I hope T doesn’t forget about our new routes along the north and south Ember roads.
