Time to get back to work now after a week of sunshine and fun. A friend has been helping me with my (very, very overgrown yard), and look what she unearthed (literally) in the back yard.
The lady who designed the garden, had a love of yellow flowers, and I have several of these beautiful yellow lilies blooming right now. The Critter is impressed, too. You can just see him on the right hand side of the picture. I think he's looking for frogs.
Canada Post, still hasn't decided if my mail box, is "acceptable". From what I understand, rural mail boxes in this area are being reassessed, and since I didn't live here when the assessment was done, they must send someone from Halifax (two and a half hours away), to determine whether my mailbox is worthy or not, and in the mean time I drive into town to collect it, which I usually do once a week. Last week's mail included an order of batiks from Flare Fabrics. There are a couple of really great neutrals in there; I'm always on the hunt for neutral colors.
I have a couple of new books to occupy my evenings - since goodness knows, there's nothing to watch on television . . . . .
And last week's adventures included a stop at Lismore Sheep Farms, where I found new inspiration for my scarf knitting addition. I don't care if it's summer, and very hot, I still knit!
This weeks adventures also unearthed a new local vintner, http://www.novascotiawines.com/, where I found this blueberry wine, which I'd have to say is one of the nicest I've ever tried!
Back to work now!
