i haven't talked about the garden
for a while...
well...unless you count that time that i
that i was completely sick of it
and didn't want to deal with it
it seemed to have flourished even without my help.
back when i still loved the garden
i made these little signs for it
but totally didn't get a chance to
post any photos of them
(probably because i spent every damn day
making 16 thousand trips back and forth
watering the damn garden)
(next year, i'm using a hose.)
and now we are coming to the end
of the garden season...
i am going to update my little planning book
with what worked well for me
and what i will do different next year
(maybe not go SO heavy on the tomatoes...)
but i am really happy with how it went
i want to try to do some fall bulb planting too
of flowers for next year...
i am really, really excited to see the little flower garden
i started this year
bloom on it's own next year...
yeah. i kinda like this gardening thing.
i bet i'll like it WAY better next year
with a working hose.
sometimes the best adventures
catch you by surprise...
like when you get up friday morning
& pack up the car
with the camera and the diet coke
but your heart is
just not in it today...
the light's not right...it's too cloudy...
the car is making a funny noise,
you need gas but you don't feel like pumping it
and you feel like your hair is doing something weird
and then you think you will go for coffee
and bullet journal
but you sit in the parking lot
and think...you know what...
i just wanna go home and put on some pj pants
and doodle at my own desk.
so that's how i spent most of the day.
but i had plans with a friend to go for a bite to eat
and a walk so i left home a little early
and went to HMS and got 2 new leuchtturm1917
baby journals because apparently i'm an addict
(BUT THEY ARE SO CUTE)
and then met up with my friend for supper...
we ate at the silver fox
it was so good.
and no, there were no chicken fingers on the menu
but my new trick is to order the
chicken bacon wrap
but...without the wrap.
well...it's just chicken fingers on a bed of lettuce with
oh...and a ceaser...also...soooooo good.
especially the spicy string bean.
so anyway. :)
then we walked the boardwalk
and the geese! there were so many geese.
i tried to convince my friend to
do something to make them all fly at once
so i could take a picture
but she declined all the ideas i proposed
(yelling wildly...throwing rocks)
(not AT the geese...just close...like...to make them fly...
not kill them! sheeesh)
and yes, uncle eddie...there WERE squirrels!
gangs of them. AND i forgot the stupid peanuts.
so anyway. :)
then we went for ice cream at holman's ice cream parlor
and i had the strawberry shortcake sundae
and look, i'm doing you a big favor right now.
go have that sundae.
you will totally thank me.
i mean..unless you are allergic to strawberries,
then maybe you shouldn't listen to me...
you should try the sundae.
i love fridays
especially fridays off...
especially sunny fridays off...
especially fridays off
that happen to fall on your
i met up with a friend and
she introduced me to a brand new trail
that i had never heard of
winter river trail.
it was beautiful...
runs adjacent to a river in places
(hence the name, i guess)
and was definitely a bit of a work out!
we did the orange trail above
but you can do shorter versions as well.
it was so peaceful and the moss and ferns
made the whole area seem electric
there were mushrooms and
tall, tall trees
and a little cabin by the water...
if you have not done this trail before
(and you are on the island)
you should totally check it out!
we came across a flock or a herd or a gaggle
of butterflies, too.
i think they are called painted lady butterflies...
i came back into town
and stopped at our local office supply store
because they had emailed to let me know
that the mildliners i have been waiting for
had come in!!!
these are made by zebra
but only recently released in canada
and i have wanted them
i think i may have been a little
exuberance (i'm not sure that everyone
gets that excited about high lighters)
when i walked into HMS
and saw the display...
i bought one of every package.
and a little baby bullet journal!
it's so cute!
the rest of the day
was spent with my sweet husband...
chinese food for supper,
exploring a new dirt road,
ice cream drumsticks and
movies...and so many sweet messages
on facebook and text that
it took me until today to read them all
(and i am totally not complaining...
i loved them all!)
all in all, it was a pretty perfect day...
