The sun is deceiving. It mimics spring is coming and yet, when I step outside, I have to put my winter coat on.
But I’m still going outside for a walk. I need a break from my walls.

Alright, it appears many people will be staying home either for precautionary or enforced reasons. Which means, the internet will be booming.

Because…today we vote for a new federal leader, and my polling station was next to a college campus and I tell you, the colours and scenery were absolutely breathtaking. I walked the 25 min round trip and stopped to snap some photos.
This Saturday morning was freezing out, but sunny with no wind. Perfect for a nice, long dog walk. Continue reading “Cold walk along the frozen shores”
