Yesterday the grocery store was completely out of milk and frozen pie crusts, but the truck came in today, so I wandered over this afternoon for pumpkin pie supplies. Here are a few pictures I took on my wander home.

Almost every street has a back alley, so I wandered through some of them and stopped at the post office to get the mail.

I love just wandering around town. I didn’t do it enough when I had a dog. For close to twenty years, the dogs always came first. Now I wander around with the knapsack again, without a poop bag or leash. If I want to go in a store, I can, if I want to stop for a beer, I can. If I want to sit on a bench and watch the river I can. All without having to tie up a dog everywhere, or feeling guilty for leaving them at home. Yes, at times I really want to get a dog, but I’m glad we’ve been taking this year off.

It is only +2C in this pictures, but feels beautiful and warm. No mitts or toque required.

The weather has been absolutely glorious since I came home from Vancouver. Every day it is sunny. Each week gets colder though. Here’s the forecast for the next week:

The puddles no longer thaw. The frost is so thick in the shade that is looks like snow. There has been no rain so our gravel streets are dusty. Chimney smoke hangs low in the air at times. You can see the dust around the sun, and the haze in the distance, in a few of these pictures.
