A Post About Nothing
Well, i can't deny it any longer, fall is just around the corner. I don't know where my summer went, but i think i did just about everything on my list. Except swim. I think my body touched water 2 times all summer. I hope that we have another heat wave because i am in desperate need to go to Sunnyside pool with my new swimming cap! At least we still have 3 cottage trips - the summer is not over until those come and go!
I did want to share with you some great finds and things that have kept me busy. For instance, i found these great beads (attached to a cheezy rope thing) that i converted into my first big-bead necklace. Fun, huh? My friend bought me a fantastic cuff from the same Archie comic book paper so i couldn't resist these. And, they come from a fair trade women's co-op in the Phillippines, so i'm especially excited!
Also, our friends have a magnificant garden, and they brought us some fruits of their labour - heritage tomatoes! Just look at them! We met up with them this weekend at one of the cool 'free weekends at the Harbourfront' festival. This weekend's theme was IndieFest - all this DIY - and the music groups featured were Herbert, Amy Milan, and the Hidden Cameras, to name a few. Fun times - hang by the waterfront and watch a free concert outdoors!
I also just got home from a spontaneous trip to Winners. How rewarding it was. They had a pair of shoes i was eyeing in the 'retail' stores - and on sale in the end-of-summer section. And i really want new fall shoes, so i got myself two pairs of shoes!
Now, all i have to do is look forward to what September brings me: The Annual Vegetarian Food Fair, The Clothing Show, and a few more concerts! I think we'll be hosting a 'back-to-school' dinner party for our school friends and i can't wait to use all the new kitchen things we got this summer!
