There’s a ton of wildlife in Calgary, and it has a tendency to just pop up wherever. We went for breakfast down at the Blackfoot Diner with Chelsea…and what should be parked on top of Chels’s building? A Canada Goose, full of attitude, honking away on the roof.
We walked down to the Diner, and Chels showed off her new toes. Well…she’s always had ’em, but now she’s got ’em on display. Apparently she had to get the more audacious colour, too. Bright, bright pink. Now…both Robin and I had heard of these things, and had been very curious about them, but had no idea where to get them. Apparently MEC carries them for a very reasonable price. We stopped in after breakfast and picked me up a pair of Vibram 5-Fingers Sprints. What most folks probably don’t know is that I have horrid posture & my back has been killing me like crazy for a good part of the last month. Barefooting is supposed to help that. We’ll see how that turns out.
After getting home, and putting on those bad-boys, we went for a walk to the community across the traffic circle and back, taking a stop off at the Safeway for a brief coffee with friends… and saw a wee froggie on our walkway. He posed for a photo-op. The bunny that wandered past our garage the day before didn’t stop long enough for that. We ended the day with some meat on the grill, the remains of a bottle of chardonnay, and a bit of knitting in the last few sunbeams of the day.
Hope everyone else had an equally good weekend!
