Some days I am not sure if it is worth taking a day off.
I took Monday off so I could enjoy an extended weekend.
I was out of town on the weekend. Saturday was acceptable, Sunday and Monday were days of nasty wind and intermittent blowing snow of varying intensity and visibility. I also managed to get a flat tire. Even though I told my immediate family I was disappearing for a few days they seem to have forgotten and phoned me a few times wondering if some harm had come to me, simply because they had not heard from me in a few days. My first day back at work is dealing with nothing but a variety of client problems.
I could use some time away from my time away.

Rural Alberta. Not in a town. Drove up and there was a number of vehicles gathering at the church hall beside the church. I asked if it was okay if I took a few photos as I did not want to disturb whatever was going on. Turns out there was a harvest supper taking place.
Abandoned church hall near the church. There is a new one on the other side of the church.

Apparently someone in the area years ago remarked 'you need a school" and thus it was named.
Not far from Paradise Valley, Alberta. A steel granary is close to the school and close to the granary someone is setting up a home on the property.

Very small rural Alberta church built 1908 and very well cared for. There is no town nearby. This is a country church in a farming area.

Lampburg School. This one was well hidden down a side road. It is in a little clearing behind some trees. If you did not know exactly where it was chances are you would never stumble across it. I could find no readily available information on it. Someone or some group has restored it.
Windows placed to catch the morning sun.

This owl was spotted in Vulcan County, Alberta. I was driving along with a friend down a gravel road and it was on a fence post observing the countryside. I managed to get a few photos with my telephoto lens. I got lucky, this one hung around for a few minutes.
Some years I see a lot of owls. One year I saw lots of snowy owls. This was my first owl of this year.

Last Friday I left work to drive over two hours to meet up with a friend. Saturday and Sunday was spent exploring backroads in southern Alberta with some walking on the prairie and in the mountains. Sunday night I drove home and arrived about nine at night. Thanksgiving Monday I drove an hour in the morning to meet up with my sister and mother. Then back home to unpack, do the laundry, and get set up for the work week.
This morning I reached into the dryer for socks and felt a unpleasant twinge in my lower back. I have been moving gingerly ever since. Laundry must be to blame.
