~ ~ ~ Abby and Hopie go to the beach. On Saturday my granddaughter, Abigail, asked if she could come to her Hopie's house all by herself. Of course, I said I would love that! Her older brother, Verne, wanted to go to a friend's house and her younger sister, Natalie, is too young to be away from mum for an overnighter. So...it was me and Abigail for the weekend. She wanted to stay 2 nights! I think she may have been slightly motivated by the need for some alone time and Natalie's late night crying. ~ We cooked homemade cornmeal waffles together for breakfast. When your grandmother is a Montessori teacher you learn to cut your waffles up by yourself. You can see the concentration on her face. I didn't help at all! Verne's first day of Kindergarten! I drove up in the morning to watch him get on the bus! He loves it! On Monday morning Abigail and I drove back up to her house.

A basket from the farmer's market. When I was a child my mum always had a fruit basket on the kitchen table. Fruit was always an option if we were hungry at any time during the day.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree... I tend to put a basket of vegetables on the table as well. Root veggies mostly since they don't need to be refrigerated. I think that they look beautiful and why should fruit have all the fun! My favourite part is that everything (even the basket) came from the local farmer's market. It's so important to support local farmers. Healthy food - healthy planet - healthy us nature notes Image-in-ing
~ ~ ~ A bit of reading material. I've been collecting books again... I've almost finished Think Indigenous. My daughter bought it as a gift for me but decided to read it first. She loved it so much it took her a bit to part with it. I am loving it as much as she did and have put it down almost all the way through because I don't want it to be over. Macro tex

Wonderful set for the hunt. The trees there "dressed" up nicely.ReplyDelete
Oh bubblegum pink flowers, yep, "eye candy."
Pumpkin - Don't they look spiffy. Love the little speckles on them.
Spooky - Some people think Graveyards are spooky. This one looks really restful.
Orange - Wow! This is my favorite of your set. What kind of berries are those?
