Progress

Today was the start of "new normal" for Fridays. With the girl who was working Fridays moving on to a full-time job, after some deliberation Lynn and I decided that I would do the regular cover for that day, though with my schedule we definitely have some wiggle room. I think it will be good … Continue reading Progress

You can't help others if you don't help yourself…

Yesterday turned into another whirlwind day. This time Lynn and I were both up and out early, taking our bookstore to the pop-up market in Stettler, hosted by the Central Alberta Business Centre. The market was good, but it was a long day, made even longer by the fact that once we finished there we … Continue reading You can't help others if you don't help yourself…

Self-care

Today was a somewhat busy day. Being Friday, it was my day to cover the store. it wasn't overly busy, but it was steady. It did provide plenty of opportunity to get my next assignment edited and submitted. Five down, three to go. After I finished at the store, Lynn met me for supper, and … Continue reading Self-care

I've used it to shoot everything from school events to rodeo. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's … Continue reading Equipment workhorse; Canon T6i

Touring the back country

Today was a quieter day. I covered a breakfast with Santa event in Halkirk first thing, then met up for lunch with some of our church folks. After lunch I loaded up the two big dogs, Sirius and Roll, and headed out into the back country to take some photos. It was a relaxing afternoon, … Continue reading Touring the back country

Enjoying down-time

Today was the first real "day-off" I've had in a few weeks. The bad news, a chunk of it was playing catch up around the house. The good news is, even with the housework I worked at catching up on, I still managed to get in a couple hours of 'The Outer Worlds' on the … Continue reading Enjoying down-time
