        It was very beautiful! My 1st set of photos will be from there. (When I get a chance to upload them)

        I hope Papillons don't become "popular" and then ruined by over-breeding
        Oh, you should try the chocolate I found on my trip!!!
        It's called BRIX and it comes in an 8oz brick! It's the "first line of chocolates specifically blended to complement wine." it's also "meant to be fractured like a hard cheese" Here's their website: https://www.brixchocolate.com/default.aspx

          Today was filled with "OMG, we've been away for 2 weeks and the grass is a foot high and the sweet corn needs to be picked, blanched, cut and froze, and the green peppers are SO huge they are bending the plants over!" activities.

          22 bags of sweet corn, and a WHEELBARROW full of green peppers! I froze some peppers, pickled some, gave some away, and made stuffed peppers for supper.

          The grass is cut - but I need to rake

          The trailer is only 1/2 unpacked.

          • Sounds like you'll be rather busy for the next few days! Good to be home, though, I'm sure.

            I suppose we may have to wait for a full report on your holiday .

            Peppers again for dinner tonight??

            • The busy never seems to end!
              I think it MIGHT be good to be home, if I was able to sit and enjoy it!
              Lily loves being home
              No peppers today - gave ourselves a break

              I forgot - yesterday - while I was busy in the kitchen, I made Ghee! 1st time.

              Saturday
              Daughter's BlackBerry "died" while on our trip. The battery would only last for about 10 minutes. This was rather inconvenient for her and scary for me (for about a half hour) when I thought I'd "lost" her in Quebec City! (More about that when I get to trip details). So, today we made a short trip into London to buy a new phone. She got another BlackBerry - she likes BBM. I had a couple of returns to make and we bought a TON of lined 3 ring paper at Walmart - $0.17 for 150 sheets!

              After supper we went out to the lake to collect my plants (Basil, rosemary, my water garden, the stevia plant and a couple of "flowers". We stopped at the booth for a visit with my parents.

              I had NO candy, ice cream, or fries!!!!!!

              Finally sitting down with my computer. I've finished transferring the 100's of photos we took (close to 800??) and I'm going to try to catch up on a few more journals.

              Breakfast: Chai with whipping cream
              Lunch: Chinese Mall Food, probably not the best choice, and a Grande $tarbucks half sweet Chai Latte.
              Supper: Roast chicken (one our friends raised), mashed potatoes, sweet corn from our garden, fresh tomatoes, and a small bowl of ice cream (at home - not at the booth)

              I think I need to start exercising again. Mark's 5??

              • Sunday

                I packed up some wine glasses (18) and a few martini glasses and goblets today. I still have about 8 wine glasses left to pack.
                I may have too many wine glasses

                After lunch my Farmer and I went on a few errands. We stopped at a deer hunting friend of my Farmer's, he had to drop off the application for this fall's hunt. We stayed for a visit and a couple of beverages. I had 2 gin & tonics. They are raising about 24 quail. The next stop was at another friend's barn to check out some metal shelving for one of my Farmer's barns. Then we stopped at my In Laws for a stack of newspapers (for packing) and to pick several apples from one of the trees. Then home to watch the Olympic closing ceremonies.

                After supper I took a few loads of stuff out of the trailer. Then my Daughter and I watched Cowboys and Aliens. I enjoyed it.
                Of course it IS a Harrison Ford movie

                I want to "get serious" starting tomorrow, (I know, yet again - but something's gotta change) so I thought I'd finish the last of the bottle of wine I had opened and eat the last couple of squares of Lindt 85%. I COULDN"T finish it!! I had ONE square left and I didn't want it!! Also, there is maybe a 1/2 glass of wine left too.

                Weird.

                Foods:
                2 eggs with bacon, onions, and tomato, small glass of peach juice
                tomato, basil, onion and chicken salad (with balsamic)
                2 gin & tonics
                an apple (fresh from the tree - tart and hard and juicy!)
                glass of wine
                leftover roast chicken, a tiny scoop of potatoes, sweet corn (from our garden) tomatoes, baby carrots
                a 1/2 cup of chocolate caramel ice cream
                1/2 glass of wine and 2 squares of Lindt

                • Monday

                  Daughter climbed into bed with me this morning and we had a long talk
                  Then we got groceries and packed up 4 boxes.
                  I need more boxes
                  After supper My Farmer and I went over to our "new" house to check on a few things. Bedroom outlets (only one in each room and one of the rooms has NONE!) septic tank and weeping bed locations, and deciding on shelving locations in one of the 3 barns. Then I tried to get caught up on a few journals.

                  College Son is in the air somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. His plane left South Africa at 5:30 pm (SA time) which was 11:30 am my time. He lands in New York Tomorrow morning at 7:30. One of the other boy's parents are picking them up and driving them back to Canada. I'm meeting them in Hamilton and then driving him to Walton for the CMRC TransCan races. He's staying there till Sunday.

                    • Tuesday

                      I gathered "stuff" for College Son (sleeping bag, pillow, shoes, coat, flashlight, food, etc) and then I went out to the booth to work for an hour while my sister "got her nails done", She has those fake acrylic nails. You know, the thick ones? Finished as a French manicure, square tips. I tried it once - HATED them. Anyway, I was at the booth from 12:45 -1:45.

                      It turned into a gummie worm eating frenzy
                      accompanied by a cup of ice cream.

                      Sigh

                      I ate SO many gummie worms that my throat was SORE later in the afternoon

                      At 1:45 I drove home, loaded a cooler with eggs, bacon, hamburgers,etc for College Son and then I left for Hamilton. I stopped for a $tarbucks halfway there. I took my time driving there, but I'd left WAY too early. So I went shopping For about 2 hours. At two different Home Sense stores. I spent about $150 while I was waiting.

                      He didn't get there till 7! It was GOOD to see him We loaded his stuff in the truck, (including his surfboard) he said goodbye to his buddies and we took off for Walton. We got there at 9:30. We talked the whole way He registered, we unloaded his stuff and I was out of there by 10pm (they close and lock the gates at 10) and back home by 12:30, with a stop at Tim Hortons in Exeter for a Chai Latte (it's not as good as $tarbucks)

                      Foods
                      Tomato & feta salad, pepperoni, a fruit salad (peach, blue plums, cherries, concord grapes)
                      an embarrassingly LARGE amount of gummie worms, caramel, caramel cup ice cream
                      Grande $tarbucks half sweet whole milk Chai Latte
                      Greek salad with grilled chicken breast
                      Timmy's Chai Latte

                      • Wednesday

                        I slept in till 10

                        My Daughter helped me "purge" the bathroom cabinets. We threw out 7 grocery bags of "stuff"!

                        When my Farmer came home, we went out to the garden to pick some cherry tomatoes. For some reason, one of the plants has bitter tasting tomatoes so we ripped out the plant. We still have 3 more cherry tomato plants. Anyone who's grown cherry tomato plants KNOWS that one plant is enough

                        The we "hunted" some big UGLY green worms that are in the tomato plants. My Farmer can't see them, and I WON'T touch them, so we make a perfect hunting couple We found and squished about 15 worms!! And I only got green worm guts splattered on my leg once! Once was MORE than enough After that, I made sure I was far enough away before the stomping happened!

                        After supper my Daughter and I went out to the booth. My Mom had bought me some DevaCurl No-Poo and a container of tiny Champagne grapes. They are SO sweet! We gave my niece some hair bands and elastics (from our purge) and a stuffed lobster from our trip.

                        I ate more gummy worms, a few of my Daughter's onion rings and a cup of ice cream.
                        Damn booth

                        Foods
                        unintentional IF till 3:30
                        tomato and feta salad, concord grapes
                        club soda with lime juice
                        grilled chicken breast, 1/2 of a stuffed zucchini (feta, sun dried tomatoes, bacon) roasted potatoes, carrots, cauliflower and cherry tomatoes, concord grapes
                        gummy worms, onion rings (about 6) and ice cream

                        • Thursday
                          already?

                          I went to the LCBO and loaded 17 boxes into my Beetle and brought them home to pack.
                          I packed 11 of them.

                          I somehow hurt the small of my back
                          Moved the wrong way
                          AND I got a terrific headache around 4pm

                          So my evening was slow.

                          Foods:
                          Tomato and feta salad, slice of Gouda, champagne grapes
                          sparkling water with lime
                          one bit of sausage (didn't like it) a cauliflower, cucumber, carrot, cranberry, mozzarella and bacon salad, a cob of corn,champagne grapes

                          later in the evening I was hungry (probably 'cause I didn't have enough protein)
                          1/2 a melted Brie with rice crackers, 1/2 cup of caramel cup ice cream


                          I still have my headache, and if I move wrong my back yells at me.
                          Time for bed
