Well, once again summer has gotten away from me and I haven't posted since early July. Oh well. Here goes:
We enjoyed a ghost walk through our community, highlighting some historic sites and events. It started in the old Catholic church by the lake. An interesting fact I learned: see that window above the alter? It was originally clear, but it has magnesium in it and over time, the sun has changed it to be purple and orange!
We did, however, manage to eat from our garden nearly every meal, including the day we ate rainbows for lunch.If the conditions were not good for the rest of the garden, the sour cherries thrived for the first time!
We ended the summer with a family visit down in Kelowna and I had such a nice time with my sisters, parents, and old friends. I got to see a movie in the theatres for the first time in 4 years (Ghostbusters- it was hilarious!). I had so much fun, I didn't remember to take many pictures, and when I got home, the only photos on my camera were of bugs, like this beauty black widow spider!When we got home on Sunday night we had to turn on the heat! Summer disappeared in a hurry and we have had nothing but rain and chilly temperatures since! I was not ready for it to be done yet!
