photo an hour

Well I’m super slow getting this post up.  These pictures are from Wednesday, August 29th!   I’ve had a couple of busy weeks…

7:30 a.m. leaving for work.  Fresh snow on the mountains and lots of low cloud but it is promising to be a beautiful day…

8:30 a.m. arriving at work in Whitehorse.  The sky is showing even more promise here…

9:30 a.m. at the coffee shop getting some tea and toast.  The sky is more glorious by the hour…

10:30 a.m.  Lots of paperwork on my desk today…

11:30 a.m. Off to a doctor’s appointment just a short three block walk from my office.  There are lots of buildings with murals in Whitehorse.  This building is an old school which now houses some alternate high school programs – the MAD (music, art, drama) and the outdoor education programs.

12:30 p.m.  It is such a beautiful day out that I am taking all the walks I can.  Had a few errands to run at lunch, including a stop at my LQS…

1:30 p.m. Here’s what I picked up at the LQS, some light oranges as I am really short of these tones for my colours quilt, and a cold drink from Tim Horton’s – mango and peach.  It was delish…

2:30 p.m.  Honestly!  I have got some work done today.  If I take a picture of my desk from this angle it looks so much less cluttered…

3:30 p.m. I’m outside again.  Can’t help myself – it’s so nice out that I decided to leave work a bit early.  This is the school that my grandkids attend (yup DGS is in kindergarten this year).  It is just a few blocks from my workplace.

4:30 p.m. Finally on my way home after getting all my errands done.  This is the Yukon River that I drive by on my way out of town…

5:30 p.m.  My favourite mountain greets me as I drive home…

6:30 p.m. A visit from a neighbour and his cute pup…

7:30 p.m.  DH and the dog are home from work.  Zeke and I are off for a walk…

I must have been in bed early because that is the last of my pictures!

  3. Mt Fuji got its first dusting of snow this week but Tokyo is still a sauna. I wonder if I could keep track of time that well.

  7. I agree about the beautiful scenery on your way to and from work... alll I had were city streets and city traffic on my to and from work and if it wasnt city traffic it was interstate traffic... now I get to see a tiny bit of nature from my sewing room... mostly birds, occasionally a chipmunk and lots of squirrels... but at least it is not city traffic
