Wow, it is October already. September zipped by in what seemed like the blink of an eye. Now, I was off for 2 weeks so when you are on vacation, time goes by even faster, I am sure. When on vacation, I hear you can do the Kessel Run in 10 parsecs. 🙂
So, a look back on September.
Fall Ball started back on the 1st. It was a slow start to Fall Ball as the weather did not cooperate at all. Typically, August and September are VERY dry. This year, it was VERY wet. The last 2 weeks of September have dried out, so that’s good. As I have said, I am really enjoying coaching, or managing, Fall Ball. It is a very laid back atmosphere which is nice, not that the spring league is pressure packed. It is also nice having players from other teams come together and become friends with one another.
I had my two week vacation. I was off from Friday the 4th and didn’t return to work until the 21st. I don’t recall ever having that much time off of work previously. Maybe over the Christmas break a time or two, not sure. I flew to Ontario in a shortened trip. Likely should have just stayed in Alberta. I left early and the flight ended up costing nearly $950 with the fees for changing the return flight. Oh well. I don’t plan on going back until and unless my company has another conference which may happen next September / October. We will see, I suppose.
For the two weeks I did work in September, it was busy. September is the start of our busy time. September – November and the start of December actually. I won’t be bored, that’s for sure.
So, now we are into October. Fall Ball is going strong. We have three games scheduled for this coming weekend, Saturday and a double header on Sunday. Saturday isn’t looking good, weather wise – highs of around 5C and flurries or rain. Even if it is dry, playing in 5C weather is not good for arms so Saturday is likely a write-off. Sunday should be dry at least, and a little warmer. Saturday night I am meeting a friend from high school who’s moved to Calgary for BBQ – Big T’s in the North West. If you are in the area and have not been, it is a must try.
So, hopefully October will be good. Enjoy.
