Sculpture Saturday – Sept. 19, 2020

thanks to Ruined for Life for hosting Sculpture Saturday https://smkelly8.com/2020/09/12/sculpture-saturday-36/

This week at WAAC (Women’s Art Association of Canada), I was helping clean up the gardens. As we were pulling out the weeds and trimming back some of the shrubs I discovered some hidden gems. The large sculpture of course was always visible but the two smaller ones were a surprise for me.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Morning Rituals

thanks to Sandy for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge https://thesandychronicles.blog/2020/09/18/friendly-friday-morning-rituals/

My morning ritual changes depending on the time of year and where I am. The one constant, though, is my morning coffee.

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – Sept. 18, 2020

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the https://xingfumama.blog/2020/09/18/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2020-week-38/

Earlier this week I drove to the Women’s Art Association of Canada or WAAC building downtown to help clean up the garden in the back. They are suppose to be hosting a wedding this Saturday. Our COVID numbers were coming down in Ontario but recently they have started to spike again. There is talk of lowering the number of people allowed to gather in outdoor spaces again but the organizers don’t think that this will affect the wedding this weekend where about 30 people are expected to attend.

Hopefully these chairs will be in use on Saturday. If not it’s for a good reason.

Apples, Apples, Apples

it’s that time of year already and the early varieties of apples are ready for picking

On the weekend the family did one more get together before our granddaughter starts school. As of Tuesday our bubble has been broken and we can no longer do these family outings for awhile.

My daughter and daughter-in-law drove with me (in my new car) to St. George where we met our youngest daughter and her family at the Brantview Apple Orchard.

It was about an hour drive from Toronto but it was a beautiful day and it was great walking through the trees and picking either MacIntosh or Royal Gala apples. Winnie loved filling up everyone’s bag.

After a hard day of picking we headed back over the store and bought some their cider and special apple cider doughnuts. Then we loaded up the cars and headed out for our next destination. To be Continued…….
