On My Way to "Brock"

Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

Psalm 34:5

Sunday was my last full day in town for awhile and I'm madly dashing to do final shopping errands. I took a walk to Brock Shopping Centre, a small shopping area on the way to the city's airport on the outskirts of town to complete the shopping requirements.

the sky is a vivid blue
the leaves are turning golden
the sun is shining tho there is a cool breeze
i pass by some recently completed town homes for sale
these town homes do look to be a generous size
tho i didn't stop for open house

and they certainly seem to be much larger & better priced than
the condos i looked at over a week ago
....just vague thoughts of moving at this point
if you look on the mountains you can see
4x4 wheel tracks and mountain bike trails
a lone man walks just to the outside of the shopping mall area
this mall has the requisite movie rental shop
a view to the southwest...where the airport is nestled and cities and towns lie beyond the mountains
Penny Pinchers, my favourite second hand shop. It is moving later this month to a more central location. I was able to drop off several giveaway bags. I was also able to purchase a "princess costume".

another close up of the tracks up the mountains
and a view westward...wish i knew what that tree with the lovely orange berries is called
My little shopping cart/buggy came in handy for all my food and Hallowe'en costume purchases.


After reading this post a friend from Florida asked if I celebrate Hallowe'en as a Christian. Here is my response.

The Hallowe'en costume is for my niece though I should point out that neither myself nor my niece actually celebrate Hallowe'en. My niece is autistic and mentally about the age of a 4 year old. She doesn't go out trick or treating and nor do we. Neither do we hand out candies to children on this night due to our Christian faith. I have explained the different holiday's to my niece and how our Christian faith "fits" with the holidays. To her limited ability she does understand. However, from time to time we do let my niece play "dress up" at the end of October and we do give her presents at Christmas in December.
