Seasonal living ~ Crafting ~ Scents of home ~ Living the Dream
Tuesday, 28 July 2009
We are having a strange summer with more than our share of rainfall. We had 50 mm of rain in two days last weekend, so the opportunities to go out for pleasure are few and far between.
Two weeks ago, we managed a drive out to Cobourg, which lies east of the city on the shores of Lake Ontario. It was a bright, but chilly afternoon when we got there and I spent half the visit shivering, but we still went through the ritual of a visit to the ice cream shop!
Candytuft Corner is a cosy place to drop by for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. I always have the kettle on and in my free time, I'm often in the kitchen baking.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Marie and I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I've been blogging since March 2007. I enjoy home-making, reading and crafts, including cross-stitch, knitting and sewing. More recently, I've started gardening and I'm trying to tame a very overgrown space to create my dream of an English Cottage Garden.
Much as I appreciate receiving awards, I request that you do not share awards or tags with me. Present time constraints do not allow me to respond and I have no desire to cause offence by ignoring them.
