It's a cool one today!
Monday, August 15, 2011
The temperature really dropped overnight. Things are looking a bit frosty out there! The temp is 12 degrees, overcast and windy. A real "Winnie the Pooh" sort of day.
I still need some hot weather and sun to ripen all the tomatoes on the vines. I'm looking forward to having some ripe tomatoes this year, not all green like last year!
Garry and I found a new Farmer's Market in the city yesterday. They are open all day Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 4pm. When talking to one of the venders, they mentioned that the plans are to eventually become year-round. They are working in partnership with Servus Credit Union and looking at getting a facility that will allow them to be indoors during the winter months. Yay...the plus side to their location...lots of parking!
We bought some kolorabi, some sweet onions and some dill. I'm hoping that our local market will have pickling cucumbers ready this week as I would like to get my pickles done. My cucumbers didn't do so well with all the rain that we have had this year. I am going to try a different brand for next year and hope for better results.
An extra day off work.
Me time today.
Found two more floor vent covers to match the ones that we have in the LR/DR. We were short two and now they are all the same and looking nice.
I'm all ready for the little "goblins and witches" that will be coming to our door on Halloween. We were in Costco yesterday and they have treat sized containers of play dough. Yay...I hate giving out so much candy and so decided that I would be the one that gives out something different. They will get a treat size chocolate bar and a treat size play dough container. It's crazy how we teach our kids not to talk to strangers or take candy from strangers and then October 31, we send them out to knock on strangers doors and ask for candy! It bothers me when I see so many children running here and there with no adults accompanying them.
Having a new day to be excited about.
Enjoy your day, make the most of all the opportunities that come your way. Be aware of how great being alive is.
