It's Friday. That week sure went fast!
We had a long weekend just past with the Remembrance Day holiday on Monday so we were busy. Saturday we went to town to the market but I didn't buy anything there. And you saw that we went downtown to the shop Savour Decor in my last post. By the way, thank you for all your kind comments on my friend Janice's store. I think she would love it if each one of you would visit her shop. If you're ever in my town I'll take you there personally. :)
We stopped by the big box building store with the orange signs and they had all kinds of nice Christmas arrangements made from fresh greens for sale (above photo). While I didn't have any birch sticks to use for my own arrangements, I did use some maple tree branches that had blown down this fall. Whatever works. ;)
I always do my own greenery arrangements with cuttings from our own trees, however, we cut down our huge white pine trees this summer so I have no pine. I'll have to go to the back roads and find some maybe.
This is one of my containers. It has spruce, cedar, sedum blooms, red dogwood sticks and some faux berries from Dollarama.
Container # 2.
On the way to town we saw this unusual sight.
A Mobile Tim Horton's restaurant.
This popular Canadian coffee shop is being renovated so they brought in a portable one. I've never seen one before. Cool eh?
Speaking of 'cool'….
My favourite ice cream is in the store now. Candy Cane with slivers of dark chocolate. Yum. I won't be buying any this year, unless I have a really weak moment, due to the possible gall bladder attack I had 2 weeks ago. I haven't had ice cream for 2 weeks! I know that doesn't sound so bad but when one has a cone of ice cream every other day…..well….. Let's just say I quit cold turkey and I don't dare to taste it again! It's been difficult as it was my comfort food or treat in the afternoon. It's all good though ~ I've lost 4.5 pounds. :)
I bought my Paperwhites and Amaryllis bulbs and will plant them today. They should be blooming around Christmas time.
Do you buy these bulbs to grow? They are so fun to watch as they sprout, grow and bloom.
The skies are grey with some blue patches and the temperatures are going to be very mild for us this time of year at around 9 or 10 degrees Celsius.
Ah, yes, I've been doing a bit of this all week. Today I'll do more.
But no tree yet. Although I've seen several up and lit already.
We'll put up our outdoor lights tomorrow as it will be a warm day for the task.
I hope you all have had a great week and I hope you have a really nice weekend.
Blessings to you,
