urban gardening -- The U of A has an "adopt a planter" program which has resulted in some interesting stuff being planted around the campus. I've been watching these pepper plants progress throughout the summer.
|also appreciated this pretty garden on 81 Ave|
petting zoo -- My neighbourhood's population has I'm sure doubled in the past week with undergrads returning to campus. The university has gone all out with welcome stuff, including this pop-up petting zoo a block over from my house. I was walking by, so of course stopped to pet some animals.
|it's not every day that you get to pet a pig|
street art -- Edmonton has some pretty neat public art. I don't know if it's just me, but I've been noticing more of it lately.
|way to go, YEG|
treadmill desk -- A couple of the libraries on campus have treadmill desks. I got around to trying one and really didn't like it! It was just so distracting (and a tad nauseating) to be bobbing up and down while trying to work. If you can work while walking though, it's an awesome idea!
|not for me :(|
Hawrelak Park -- Checked out the Hawrelak Park footbridge for the first time.
|there's an off-leash dog park on the other side, so if you don't have a dog it's a good place to get in some vicarious puppy time|
|it's also a nice place to watch the sunset|
Alright, back to a quiet Sunday of work on the couch :)
