For October I'll be posting Thankful Tuesday & sharing what I have been grateful for during the week.
October 1 - a surprise phone call from a friend in BC; wonderful chat about everything & to let me know she'll be in Ontario the week of the 18th. Still (hopefully) warm enough for a meet up outside.
October 2 - working through all the welcome & initial aspects of a new to me online course, "Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education" . It is a very well organized course. I think it is going to be a emotionally tough course; I am feeling excited for the knowledge & understanding I hope to gain.
October 3 - a break in the rains, allowed for some time outside. It felt like Miss Summer had not entirely left the area, it was rather humid. The late afternoon light was tinted golden, which reminded me that Ms Autumn is definitely in control, but was showing a softer side to her moods. The leaf colours changing are beginning to be significant enough for a gasp or two of delight. Sugar maples are the best.
October 4 - celebrating my best friends birthday today. We have been best friends since the day we first met at school, two horse crazy girls. She has been struggling with severe depression throughout the lockdowns & restrictions. But today she sounded more like her true self & wanted to celebrate her birthday in a quiet way.
October 5 - Mr Man's latest eye surgery has been re-scheduled to November. The best part is that in re-scheduling it is also going to be in a location closer to home, so makes the driving to/from less daunting for me as designated driver. Thankfully still the same surgeon.
