Send in the clowns…
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/that-stings/
Yesterday was a typical Saturday for me. Lazy and no real “accomplishments” to speak of. We did, however, head up the peninsula to Peninsula Nursery (http://bonsaibc.ca/), a nursery that specialize in bamboo and Japanese maples, as well as a variety of shrubs and trees, ferns and hostas. We are just starting to think of ideas for the front yard, now that it’s a blank slate, as you will see once I post the final pictures of the house as painted.
Here are some of the sights from Peninsula nursery – it’s not a big place, but it’s packed with wonderful things.
We also stopped in Brentwood Bay on our way home at a place called Carnivore (http://www.carnivoreandmore.com/). Yes, it’s a butcher that sources local (VERY local) meats, and makes its own sausages (many, many flavours of chicken, pork, and beef sausages!) We picked up dinner for a few nights while there. I heard of Carnivore from my colleagues and friend Susan and Jen who live up in north Saanich, so visit there on a regular basis. For us, it’s out of the way, but easy to stop at on our way home when we are up that way!
We also stopped at a farmer’s stand on the way home for some local (and very yummy) corn.
Once home, it was putting a new tarp on the roof of our garage-like structure (long story), watering the garden, and then making supper. Sausages and corn…yum!
To end the post du jour, of course, a few kitty pictures. Here is an Elliot series for you.
And finally, something that made me laugh this morning…
