September 18: Off day

I’m leaving work out of this one. It was a good, weekend day of a lazy morning, getting out of the city, relaxing and spending some time with my kids.

I really enjoy my weekend mornings this time of year. There’s a crispness to the air as morning temps are 15-18 degrees and I wake up early enough that the neighborhood is quiet. It makes for a nice morning walk with my dog before heading up to the roof with my breakfast and coffee. Sometimes I stay up there for hours enjoying the quiet, reading, scrolling and talking with my wife.

Today we also managed to get out of the city for a hike in one of our favorite spots. Things are pretty brown around here right now, but the blue skies and perfect temperatures make it a great time of year to get out on the trails. You can see the energy coming back to all of us (after the kids complain a bit about going, but that’s their job) as we clear the area filled with rubbish and come out to the views across the valleys. The dog takes off running, happy to be free and the kids talk our ears off. Its a great way to spend some time.

After a brief refueling and perhaps a wee bit of a nap it was off to the gym with my kids for a bit of basketball. Neither one of them can get enough these days and we end up back at the school for a shoot around at least once a weekend. This time it is me that is grumbling on the way out, but it always turns out fun and it is cool to see them improve and try new things.

This week will be full of new projects for class so I’m excited to see how things go.
