Sugar Peas. Good Seed.
Black Beans. Good Seed.
I love wood piles. Is that odd?
I can't believe I got this shot either.
First time I ate a fresh warm fig, I went out after and bought three trees.
Family walk after dinner through the yard.
300 new raspberry cane update. Hmm, coming along nicely.
Down to the blueberry patch to see how they are. They are in bloom.
They go from this..
To this. Then they get plump. Then they turn blue.
Enjoy your week.

There's been a lot of flower picking lately. It's calming, and boy, I need calming.
Walks in the woods with our sweet old girl Finn help too.
Life these days seems to be full of ..hmm. The word, the word to use here...
The kind society of blogland, keeps me cussing. Though, my clever use of cussing is what enabled me to receive a present in the mail today. Another nice moment amongst chaos.
Did you ever see the movie 'A Christmas Story'.. Fra Gee Lay - must be Italian!
Good remembering moment
Well, it arrived in perfect condition, and as I was not expecting it to arrive so soon, champagne was not on hand. So, today Tom, I'm sorry, but it's a vase. Do not leave a cussy comment, I will block your profanity.
It's happy and it made me smile - a very good moment.
Thank you Tom.
We also got the vegetable garden planted.
And today, it was my mom's birthday. We made her a cake and decorated it.
This, to a tiny girl of two, is the perfect cake.
Her Grandma will also enjoy the new bubble bath that she can generously apply with a giant pineapple sponge!

Come over to Poppytalk today, I guest posted on how to make a rhubarb pie...entirely from scratch! And you know Lily was in there stealing the show again!
The beautiful images were taken by my sweet friend Janis over at Pinecone camp.

Today, Goat was spotted at Granville Island in Vancouver.
In Edible BC to be exact. Eating my Apple Curry Chutney asking,
"Is that fresh Ginger, or did you kick me!"
"It is fresh ginger" the lady replied, "but I kicked you too. Now get out".
We got the call, and headed out. I packed up the kids - yes, today I had two, but just for a few hours.
A little aqua bus ride, and we were there. Granville Island.
You'll be happy to know, I did not get one of these big boys stuck in my hair this time. Yes, it really did happen and no, I don't want to get into it with you right now. Like a deleted scene from Hitchcocks The Birds. Not pretty, and hard to believe what you are seeing, is actually happening.
I'm a Guest Blogger over at HGTV.CA today. They loved Lily's birthday party so much, they are running it for their readers. It really was cute as ever!! Have a peek if you missed it last fall.

Here's how the first day off went.. Met my sisters new puppy.
I'm sorry, but is that not the most pinchable butt ever!
He's a rescue mish/mosh puppy from the pound. Makes him even cuter, doesn't it.
Set up a new happy place in my house. My dear friend Janis over at Pinecone Camp, gave me the beautiful photograph. I've hung it next to the bird painting her husband Rob did.
so cute, it deserves two shots!
I fiddled with my mantle - a collection of glass bottles and a fire king bowl..
I fiddled with some flowers ..it's lilac season here.
I found a pretty new flower in the garden..hello new flower.
I had two giant fights with my two and a half year old today. She finally passed out.
I sat down, sighed, looked out the window. The end of the day. The blueberry patch was glowing.
I had to take a shot.
..and now I'm going for the wine bottle.
