Stairway to Heaven

This was a very steep dirt path going into Nose Hill Park. Over the last few weeks we could see from a distance they were working on the trail. We went up to see what was being done and behold a new set of stairs replacing the steep path. This is the place my child likes to go to recharge. The park is in the middle of the city but there are many parts of the park where you can’t see any city at all and the sound of the wind through the trees almost drowns out the sound of cars on the surrounding roads. Lots of wonderful prairie flowers and the odd dog to pet along the way. A great place for a walk.


At 5:30 in the morning you can get a seat on the train, sit comfortably and read a book or stare at your phone. Those that stand in a packed train like sardines at 7 am are just starting to wake up. I think I’d rather have a seat and some space for my commute.


Carefully with his bare hands he works his way through each hive frame by frame to see how the bees are doing. Is there pollen? Is there honey for the bees to eat? Are there any eggs? These hives look strong  after a long winter but they are having to work hard to find pollen so the beekeeper, my Brother, helps them out by added some “pollen patties” for them to eat while they wait for more flowers to bloom.

On the same day as yesterdays photo we sat below the Bow Falls and watched the water, the mountains and the people. Although it was busy with tourist behind us it was what was in front of us that made us forget about all those people.

Hanging around


I talked with this person that was hanging around outside my office. He said he would work until late in the evening because it might rain the next day. He can’t work when it rains so he does as much as he can when the sun shines. He washes the windows and washes the panels/siding on the building. Basicly he and one other guy clean the whole outside of the 21 story office tower I work in in about five days. Not too bad.
