Found the cows, they’re at home…

Despite struggling to get motivated this morning, today was a pretty successful day. I managed to get an article written for work before lunch, then headed into the back country near where I live to do some exploring. The terrain in this area never ceases to amaze me. We have everything from flat prairie to … Continue reading Found the cows, they’re at home…

Damaged Heroes…

I think part of the passion I have for writing comes from reading. I've always been a reader. As a youth I would routinely stay up late reading, and I read pretty much anything I could get my hands on. By the age of thirteen I was reading Dale Brown, Tom Clancy, and Michael DiMercurio, … Continue reading Damaged Heroes…

Getting through this pandemic with patience…

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com This shutdown continues, with no end in sight, thanks to the Covid 19 Pandemic gripping the world. I know many people are advocating for the loosening of the restrictions that are in place so that the economy can be reopened and people can quit being confined to their homes. I … Continue reading Getting through this pandemic with patience…

Tired but accomplished…

Today was another office day, cleaning up more work from my interviews and photos I took yesterday. I managed to get four stories done and submitted which has me pretty close to being caught up for the time being. I have one more story that I can start work on, however until I get some … Continue reading Tired but accomplished…

Photography Friday:Workflow

In an effort to introduce some focused content into my blog, I'm introducing Photography Fridays. These blogs will be focused on various aspects of photography, ranging from workflow to equipment that I use. Before I got into photography, I was under the false assumption that it was all pointing and shooting a camera, however since … Continue reading Photography Friday:Workflow

Reflex… DBT Skill

Today is one of those days that I'm feeling like I accomplished nothing, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary. I was up around 9:30, and played some Red Dead Redemption 2 for a bit while Lynn slept. After she got up, I caught up on some dishes, vacuumed, and cleaned up the back yard … Continue reading Reflex… DBT Skill

Feeling Stable

I am getting tired of sleeping through my alarm clock... I had my alarm set for 7:30 because I had a nine a.m. meeting. I figured it gives me an hour to get up, have coffee, and make myself human. Nope. Woke up at 8:30, and barely made it out the door in time. On … Continue reading Feeling Stable

Going Forward… Goals

I'm sitting at over 560 blog posts since I started this journey in the fall of 2017. That's a lot of time behind the keyboard. I am grateful from my community support in doing this blog, and have no plans to end it any time soon, however lately I have been thinking about what my … Continue reading Going Forward… Goals

Maintaining…

Today has been a busying day, writing and chasing stories for the paper. I ended up having a telephone appointment with Dr. M at the centre today as well, and was unprepared for what he had to say. In his opinion I am doing the best I have since he'd met, proven by the fact … Continue reading Maintaining…

Software Review: Adobe Lightroom

It is safe to say that we are living in times unprecedented in our generation. The numbers of people becoming infected with the Covid-19 bug continue to increase across the province, and the world. Fortunately the cases in the province are growing at a slower level than anticipated, thanks to the effects of social distancing. … Continue reading Software Review: Adobe Lightroom

Bouncing back amid the grind…

I'm starting to bounce back a bit, mentally speaking. It's been a rough few weeks, and mentally I've been near my limits. Emphasis on near, but not at them. I've been maintaining, surprisingly well considering everything that's gone on. Mood wise, I think I'm actually starting to rebound. A few of my soft-tells are showing … Continue reading Bouncing back amid the grind…

Practising my craft…

Yesterday was mainly about photography. I was up and out early for my every 90 day bloodwork for my blood sugars. It is a standing order, but due to the instability of my sugars of late they agreed that it was probably good to get it done. After I got back home I ended up … Continue reading Practising my craft…

Becoming a “Creative” Type…

I've never considered myself to be a "creative" type. Outside of a few months of graphic design in high school I never really got into art, and until I started this blog I hadn't written since graduation. I'm still not sure I would call myself a "creative," but things have significantly changed for me in … Continue reading Becoming a “Creative” Type…

A Switch in Perspective…

I connected with M yesterday for the second time in under a week, and I'm definitely grateful for the sessions. Something I realized during the session was kind of a breakthrough though. The pandemic raging around the world as I write this would be enough stress for even the most mentally tough person to handle. … Continue reading A Switch in Perspective…

Falling into routine

We are falling into a routine after the stress of the last few days. I'm slowly getting back into my work projects, and Lynn is doing some online marketing for the store and her home-based-businesses. The air in the house is definitely somber compared to what it was, but the other two dogs are starting … Continue reading Falling into routine
