I spent the September long weekend relaxing at my uncle’s place, in Calgary. Mostly, I hung out with my aunt, went for walks by the reservoir, enjoyed the market with friends, and hung out in the backyard, either reading on the deck, playing with the dogs, or admiring my uncle’s fantastic gardens (mixes of flowers and veggies) … while playing with the dogs some more. Oh, yes, and I ate a tonne of beets. Delicious, nutritious beets. Mmm!
