The week that was.....


Waiting for elevator after visiting my father at the veterans hositial.


Look what the UPS guy had for us on Thursday!
An 'Achatz' strawberry/rhubarb crumble pie!!
A gift form Stew and Ed in Michigan for 
showing them around Halifax last month.
It is as good as it looks, trust me.


Fog always produces the strangest photos. The green is fog 
and the blue is a break in the clouds.


Chillin'........


Blowin in the wind. Sophie was just sitting on the hill and looking out to sea that evening.


I think she was enjoying the cool breeze with Ron.


This is the top of a very high and dead tree in the park.....
with a small tree growing out of an opening.


Sunrise at Lawrencetown Beach.


I bet kids and adults love this!


Sunrise looking out to Lawrencetown Lake.


Sophie met the 'love of her life' last week at the beach!
This is Zephyr a Golden Doodle. 
He was very smitten with her as well.
They were very relaxed around each other.


New condo high rise in Halifax.


Which is the mannequin?


A recent purchase (and a first in a long while) of mid-century dishes.


Got these from a woman who was selling these at a yard sale stand on the south shore.
She was helping her mother sell all this 50's and 60's collectibles.

    1. Sophie in the wind is my favourite too, Jean. She was sitting there minding her own business.

  4. Wow, so much to comment on today! Love Sophie's gaze out onto the water...wonder what dog's think about when they're lost in thought? I love the way Sophie's and Zephyr's tails curve exactly the same way. Cool name, Zephyr. Love that mid-century glassware! Oh, my!

    1. Good question Liz! I think Sophie was really enjoying the moments with the wonderful cool breeze....as it is usually at least 5 degrees cooler on the hill.
      Liz if you had been there to see what these women (mother and daughter) had at their table....a lot of this they got in your fair country because they have just moved to Nova Scotia to live.

  6. Hi Y'all!

    Of course I love the pictures of Sophie best, but then I'm a retriever too. And of course the mannequin is the one with the price tag on his shirt! BOL!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  8. Sophie on a hill of flowers is adorable, Sophie in Love is even better. What a well-matched pair. The photo of Ron on the rock is beautiful, and please tell him that Troika was the name of our dog. My brother's name was Lennart. I think he misread something in my post.

    As for all the rest, what can I say, except that as always your photos tell stories, ordinary and extra ordinary both. And seeing those dishes, I am reminded of your shop. I hope that is going well.

    1. I liked that one of Sophie as well Inger! Your family dog's name caught Ron's attention as it is so close to his surname, Troke.
      The 'shop' is going slowly but surely. I have a chance to join with a woman who specializes in mid-century furniture in the fall, and I would supply the 'smalls'. We'll see.

  9. Some great shots and editing here, Jim. I particularly like the photo of the different colored dishes. The light and reflections make it a really cool image.

    1. Thanks Pat. I like those colours too and when I saw the sun beaming through the window....well, I had only one thing to do!

  10. Green fog... great idea for a book, if I had the time. Loved the little tree, life will where it will, right? That pie reminded me that I hadn't eaten any supper, it looks delicious!
