Hi everyone! A late post today. No rug hooking related work done on the weekend. Instead I chose to be outside and managed to get heat exhaustion two days in a row. Today was my second covid vaccine shot. Except for my morning and evening walks I stayed indoors…drinking lots of water.
I’ve been browsing and reading library books. I have Deanne Fitzpatrick’s “Making a Life” in front of me. I want to start that next.
I also have some poetry books on the go, and a natural history book for Nova Scotia. I’ve been using the “Book of Nature Poetry” edited by J. Patrick Lewis to find poems to add to my nature journal pages. Sunday we were up to Cape Blomidon and I painted a very poor quality watercolour of the cliffs and ocean. I just accepted it for what it was. Some days my art works and some days it doesn’t. Today I added a poem about the sea by Lillian Moore and felt a bit better about the page.
On our way to the Cape we stopped at The Naked Crepe in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. It’s a cute restaurant with patio on Main Street. We ate indoors, out of the sun, and were rewarded by an excellent view of the chefs making the crepes. It was fascinating to watch!
There were a considerable number of options on the menu. The servings were quite large. Still, we found room for dessert crepes. We had the Thai spicy chicken crepe, the donair crepe, the lemon curd crepe and the berry fruit medley crepe. My favourite was the berry fruit medley crepe. It came with sweetened yogurt in a crepe shaped like a cup, surrounded by a mixture of berries and fruit drizzled with maple syrup. We waddled out of there and headed back to the car to continue our trip to the Cape.
Well, if you have been, thanks for reading. Hopefully I’ll have something related to rug hooking to post the end of this week. Have a great week everyone!
