My intentions as each day comes is to stay home and accomplish household chores. Each day comes and I come up with one excuse or another to get going and get out the door doing one thing or another. When I woke this morning and checked the forecast I knew this would be a day to get out the door and get going and stay home another day. The forecast was for fabulous and it turned out that way as you can see in the fluffily (made up that word) framed photo from Mount Lorette Ponds.
After getting some exercise, I came back to my car then set up my breakfast site.
I set up my lunch site.
Now satisfied from lunch it was time to relax, take a load off, just lounge about. Enter to the scenario, my hammock, the perfect place to just hang out. It swayed every so slightly, just enough, to sway me into sleep. I did end up having my bear spray beside me just in case, along with a book with intentions of reading. The reading never happened,
Forty minutes later I packed up, it was time to move on down the road again. Even though I have driven by Mount Lorette Ponds a multitude of times over the years I have not taken time in those years to invest time in admiring them. I did check them out a couple of times but that seems like a lifetime ago.
The ponds put on a spectacular show!
It was so pretty and so peaceful.
The colors were amazing today.
When I am out sightseeing on Highway 40 "where life begins" I like stopping by Barrier Lake for a bit to admire the views there. Access is closed until June 29th while construction is taking place. Today was definitely the day to be out doing what I did in Kananaskis. All those household chores are still there for me to attack another day. Maybe I will stay home on Saturday seeing as there is snow in the forecast!
It's pretty tough, 'just living life'!ReplyDelete
