Weekly highlights: Nature with a dash of city

How can I describe last week? Basically with one word: blues.
For whatever reason I was feeling blue. Can't blame the weather (SO gorgeous), or the hubster (just a peach), or people at work (everybody behaving themselves), so work itself must be the culprit.
Or life in general? Hormones? I also blame it on the season finale of Dexter which I found thoroughly unsatisfying. Didn't like it one bit.

But yesterday brought a definite change for the better, so things are looking up :)
And, like I said, the weather is just 'zum Helden zeugen'. (Translation: to father heroes. Don't ask.)

*Disclaimer: This week's pictures are heavy on nature. It was either that or hospital pics. You're welcome.

Friday, September 20th
My typical days these days: BWW. Blog, walk, work.

Saturday, September 21st
Yes, miracles do happen. Once in a blue moon, we brush off the hay, clean ourselves up, and venture out to the big city. The occasion this time? Our friend Jonathan wrote a book! And he did a book signing in Vancouver.
It's a mystery/P.I-story/romance/witty adventure all rolled into one.
I've just started reading it, and it's the coolest feeling, reading a book that someone you know wrote, because I hear his voice when I read it!

What to say about this day? I had picked up an extra day of work, which I obviously regretted by the time the alarm went off. Work was okay, but the interesting part was a conversation we had: about forced sterilizations on mentally and physically disabled people that happened in Canada (shocking, right??) throughout the 30s till early 70s.
I don't know how that came about, hospital workers are a strange breed; but it makes you wonder about the cruelty of humanity.
So it was that, plus the (disappointing) season finale of Dexter (who is a serial killer) - an overall odd theme for the day. Needless to say, there is no picture to document it.

A cow creamer/milk jug! How cool is that?? Very, my friends.

Tuesday, September 24th
We had a fantastic fire, braved some rain, drank some wine, planned our future. A perfect day, no blues to be had. (I was also off work. No work, no blues. Coincidence? I don't think so.)

Wednesday, September 25th
I know I'm jammering on about it, but just look at it: how pretty are these fall days?

Thursday, September 26th

I also can't release you into the weekend without sharing this little gem a co-worker introduced me to. Hilarious!
Don't you wish it was Wednesday now?

  1. I am glad your blues are blowing away, sometimes they are needed to regain perspective though!

    1. That's true. Must be the changing of the seasons, a lot of people were down this week. But, let's embrace autumn!
