Saturday Morning Post

The week that was.....

Acquired this 60's step stool this week for the shop.

Sophie surveying one of the beaches at the park before we go down to it.

Lunch on Tuesday was this delicious black bean/quinoa burger with steamed greens,
at one of our favourite restaurants called Heartwood.

Sailboats at the mouth of Halifax Harbour.

Sophie at Lake Banook in Dartmouth on Wednesday.

Nothing better than a good shake!

I liked the soft colours in this SOOC (straight out of camera) shot from Wednesday evening.

I had a planned 'meet-up' with these two at the sister Mary (Mim)
and her dog Maggie.

Late Thursday afternoon from the shop window.....very ominous sky over the city to the west.

Continued from two above......Mim's dog Maggie.

And my very fit and athletic sister doing her 'sets' at the park's outdoor gym!!

A view of two other beaches I can see from the shop.....Conrad's Beaches.

Met up with this little speed demon on the beach Thursday evening.

Added this lamp and the little rocker to the shop this week.
They both were in Ron's family home for well over 80 years....he grew up with them.

A beautiful sunny late afternoon along the canal in Eastern Passage, just outside of Dartmouth.

This was where we saw the Super Moon last week in Cow Bay.
See that house just left of centre? That is the MacDonald House

where my shop is located atop MacDonald Hill.
We live about two km down to the left.


  1. What a great place to live and work! Conrad's beaches look lovely.

  2. Maggie looks like such a smiley little dog! Well I should say big dog... I love the 60's step stool!

  3. Hey, My Rare One has that exact same step stool in her kitchen! We had it re-upholstered a few years ago to refresh its look. It is SO handy!

  4. Wonderful roundup of photos, Jim! There's always something fun and interesting to photograph, isn't there? We only need to look around :)

  5. I enjoyed these photos so much, Jim. It was fun to see MacDonald House from across the bay. Thanks for identifying it. I might not have picked up on it. I was wondering what Mim was doing in the first picture of her, and suddenly realized she was doing a parcourse course. They seem to be more popular in Canada. We had a step stool like yours too. Have a happy weekend!

  6. I could use that step stool around here. Not sure where I could park it though.
    Like that 'shake' shot!
    Conrad's beaches... sigh...

  7. Maggie has gorgeous eyes that say so much, and the outdoor gym, the second photo and words explain, and, as always, a super series, wish that one day I will be able to visit, dream on, dream on!!! Hugs to all, Jean

  8. That step stool is great. It looks as if it's in perfect condition. I think we had one very much like it when I was a youngster. The lamp from Ron's family is great, too.


  9. What fabulous views from the shop! I have a floor lamp a lot like that one. It lights my loom.
    I really like the SOOC shot.

  10. I think that if there is a heaven then for me it must be in your shoppe. :)

  11. I want to say , "How can Ron part with those items," but I'm doing the same - giving some antiques or golden oldies from my family to my children. Perhaps they'll love the vibes of the things as much as I have. I always like seeing Mim - she makes me smile!


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
