We've been back in school for almost a month now, so life has been a little chaotic lately.

September also happens to be spider season here. And one morning they reminded me I wasn't the only one being busy these days. 

Look at all these webs in the backdrop of an early morning sunrise! Too many to count, but made me pause for a closer look, and quickly snap a couple of pics.

The summer weather is sticking around and the local Calgary News has been reminding us to be grateful for it. Our fellow Canadians there are battling power outages and snowfall. On September 10, if you can believe it. Cray. Zee. 

Our evenings are spent outside on the deck, savouring ice cream cones, and these two cuties...
