Food Friday - Our Veggie Boxes

We've had been wanting to put raised veggie beds in our front yard for years now
so finally this was the season for that project to happen and we just love them.
It was such a pleasure to see how well everything was growing all season long.

We grew 4 different kinds of lettuce & didn't have to buy any from the store for weeks.
We did Roma, beefsteak and yellow tomatoes & have been including them in most dishes lately.
We did Purple, green leaf and tuscan kale and gobbled it all down (my niece loved the garden kale).
and we grew basil, spearmint and oregano and cucumbers.  I LOVE growing things, do you?

Weaving Again

I put my weaving away for quite awhile, just when I was getting into it...I haven't told anyone why...
It was because I was working on this outside with Teela the week she suddenly got sick and passed....
I haven't been able to look at it since really...
the same way, I haven't been enjoying the yard like normal.


But, I figured it was getting time to break out all the weaving stuff again and try again...
every though it makes my heart so heavy...I've been in a fog since I've lost my best friend...
I am trying to emerge from it, I just don't think time will heal this one for me but I am trying...
So I started to teach myself again, I started enjoying the yard again & Leisel is helping me with that.

The Eclipse

Did you guys watch the eclipse???
Isn't it kinda crazy that there hasn't been one quite like that one for over 100 years!
Well I ended up having a wicked bad migraine that day so I wasn't up
for heading to our waterfront to use our local astronomy clubs public viewing set-up... 
but my honey did whip up two pin-hole camera boxes for us which did the trick,
so every 10 minutes or so I would run outside to watch.

I admit I was a little underwhelmed by the visuals,
mind you in our part of the world we only got 70% coverage
& at no point could we safely just look up.
What I loved though was that for those few hours, so many in the world were together
enjoying & concentrating on something magical instead of negative  
and I just felt lucky to be there in those moments, no matter how painful, with my hon seeing it all.

Colour Me Happy

I can't help but feel happy whenever I sit down with my colours...

Especially at the very beginning of a piece, when it's all going beautifully!

Fielding Bird Sanctuary

A few weeks back we spent some time at a bird sanctuary up North from us.

We saw just geese, ducks and loads of dragonflies but it was lovely all the same.

We saw the Snowbirds again this year at the beginning of summer...they are always cool to watch.

I hope your having a wonderfully warm and cozy Fall weekend, may your sweaters be extra cozy XO

Going Far For Vegan Eats

Sometimes when you live in a little city of meat-eaters and hunters,
you are willing to drive 1.5 hours
for beautiful kind vegan fare that you can't really get in your own city.

Before a day of mountain biking we fueled up at (the vegan) Tucos Tacos & than enjoyed donuts & cupcakes at a vegan bakery across the street, both owned and run by a husband & wife team.
I love quirky unique places, especially when they offer kind cruelty-free eats.

Grass For Flynn

Flynn has his very own deck that he doesn't have to share with any-bun right now
He likes getting out into the yard but he'd rather zoom around the house & hang out on his deck

but that doesn't mean he doesn't love the taste and smell of fresh grass,
So we planted some grass in a low round container just for him out on his deck & he LOVES it.

Cruelty-Free Makeover Time

My niece loves as long as she agreed to only use my own cruelty-free products,
we were game, ha ha....

It was such a good laugh.
And can I just state for the record that this kid has the best uncle in the whole world!
