Speaking of windows, the Second Story Women's Centre Art Show is only for 4 more days...tomorrow through Sunday. Unfortunately, none of my pieces (2 windows and a small acrylic painting) have sold :( Oh well, I know just where to hang them when I bring them home!
And...speaking of art...Shelagh Duffet is having a fun giveaway. Hop over to her blog to read about it. You'll want to join in the fun.

All in all it was a fantastic day. Any day spent with camera in hand is a good day!

It was very charming, and a very unusual find! Elinor's shop and museum are only open for 2 more weeks this year, and I'm hoping to get back before she closes for the season.No, I will not be renting her hostel...but I would like to purchase one of her books!

Another wonderful bbq (a tad earlier than the night before), and a girl's movie night in our jammies.
Today was quite relaxing...morning coffee on the deck, a little gardening, a few little walks around the "paths", and if I'm lucky...it will end on the deck with some blueberry wine and bbq'd hamburgers.
Hope everyone had as good a weekend as we did!

This past week has been a whirl wind of visitors. One of the wonderful things about living in Nova Scotia is that lots of people want to come to visit! Last Saturday, Julie and her family arrived. Julie is a founding member of the Paws For Charity group that I still am actively involved with, despite selling my dog biscuit business in Feb 2008. Julie owns Chilly Dogs and makes outdoor gear for active dogs... the best quality coats I've ever seen. It was great to see her again, and spend time with her family too. They left on Monday.
On Wednesday, M & M arrived...John's cousin and her husband. They are visiting their son and DIL in another part of Nova Scotia and came over to the South Shore for a couple of days. We toured around Lunenburg, Blue Rocks, Stonehurst, and Mahone Bay on Thursday. They were also there for the drop off of my art for the upcoming Second Story Women's Centre art show. My photo was taken by the local newspaper for a bit of a promo in next week's paper.
M & M left yesterday afternoon, and then we jumped in the car to drive to Halifax to pick up Miss M. Last night was our first sleepover without her mom and dad (DIL and G). We drove G and a friend to the airport...they jetted off to Ontario for a weekend of golf. DIL was stuck working last night and today, so we get the pleasure of Miss M's company. Today we are off to the beach. And...the weather is actually cooperating. Yay!
