Lunch at the Leg*

*Note: Leg pronounced with a soft "g" as in  the second and not the first "g" in gouge.

On many Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, my colleagues and I take a 30 minute walk.  Sometimes,  we eat our bag lunch at the Alberta Legislature.  The grounds are carefully manicured, peaceful and inspire joy.  Young families enjoy the pools when it's hot and many people stroll about to soak in the beauty of the gardens.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to do this as I have never worked downtown before.  The Leg is about 5 minutes from the building where I work.

The Leg building is 100 years old this month...

I am also grateful to work with people who value physical activity.   The city is abuzz with walkers and runners during the lunch hour. In all the years I have worked, this is the one job that has phys ed built in.  On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, a one hour yoga session is offered to the employees of my workplace.  Our instructor Sue, is the best I have ever had, honestly!  On this my last year of full-time work, I take the time to count my blessings.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

à plus tard,

Stella
