Summer so far, has been lovely! My lack of blogging is testament to this. I’ve been trying to be more mindful of living in the moment, and so have been leaving my phone out of reach. Even so, I still managed to get photos of some of the experiences we have been having. .
Our days have been filled with enjoying the lovely variety of weather Calgary offers- hot sunny days spent at spray parks and by the water, stormy days playing in the rain and jumping in muddy puddles, early mornings visiting neighbourhood parks and quiet moments observing birds and bugs.
We’ve interacted with animals, learning about how to care for them, and how to use gentle hands. I’ve discovered how much Y loves animals as he insists on petting every dog that we pass. Encounters with ants, spiders, butterflies, moths, dragonflies, various types of birds and dogs, chickens, bunnies, voles, donkeys, deer, fish and so forth, have
opened our eyes and ears to new things.
Appreciating time together outdoors, as we benefit from the various opportunities our city has to offer: performances, festivals, and adventure playgrounds or just spending time in the mountains or on the river.
We have had messes and pieces galore.
And impromptu moments of culinary inspiration.
What a beautiful summer this is shaping up to be, alhamdulillah.
