This is the beautiful Avon Theatre in Stratford Ontario.

Yes Yes Yes I am going soon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To the Stratford Shakespeare Festival !!!!!!!!!

We will be there to see 3 plays in August

~~~~~~ ~~~~~ Macbeth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Cirano Di Bergarac

~~~~~~~~~~~~~Julius Ceasar

I am leaving this Saturday for Ottawa to visit my daughter, then were going to the beautiful Quebec City for Les Fete De Nouvelle France ,that is such a special time of year to go visit that city.Its the most historical city in Canada.
Walking those old coblestone streets allows you to feel the atmosphere as it was in the 1700,esp when people are walking around in period costumes what a treat to see.
Were going to the Chateau Frontenac for High Tea, plus a boat tour down the St Laurence for the fireworks and of course we always take a nice drive around Orleans Island and down Chemin Royale its so worth the ride its spectacular views are breath taking !!

Then we are headed for Stratford to see the plays ... I have never been and I cannot wait !!!!
3 Shakespeare plays can you imagine !!!
Were booked for a picnic on the Avon River in between plays the first day.... this river is noted for its beauty and swans etc...
Stratford and surrounding area is noted for its antique shops !!! ~~~~~((( Yipeeee)))

Leaving Stratford we will then go onto Manitoulin Island and see what there is to see !!!
I have never been there either but oh my the pictures I have seen are gorgeous !
We will take several boat rides etc...

We will go through Barrie I have an Aunt who lives there I want to go visit, my Dad's sister.

So as you can see it will be a busy 2 weeks away.!!

I cannot wait !!!

I started making a list and packing little things weeks ago, I don't want to forget anything , while trying to pack light ( HA) wish me luck with that... LOL!!
I will take lots of pictures and share my trip when I get back ... see ya then ladies !!!

Afghan Love !

I crochet this afghan ,lots and lots of Granny Squares in a dusty rose and moss green color.
It was created for my daughter with lots of love in each stitch, each one is a kiss from my heart !!

These are impatience from my tiny garden,I love the red color so bright and fun,hopefully they wont drown we have so much rain this summer its incredible.
These grow so well for me because I have a lot of shade in my back yard , I have an elm tree of huge and I am talking huge proportions, it makes a canopy over the whole of my back yard,a sight to behold !!
What grows well for you and why ???

Hello !!!

Yes I know my bad........

I have been busy doing my little fun crafts, I will take photos and show you I promise.
We have been having really wet weather with only a sunny day here and there,my poor little flower beds are waterlogged.
My peonies are gorgeous this year.I bought a new plant in a pink color I can't wait for it to bloom so I can see ,it won't be this year, hopefully next year.

Yesterday I made a cherry pie,it took me an hour to pit the cheeries , and that was a messy job ,even with the disposable gloves, but so worth the taste !!

I will be a bit more regular on the blog have patience with me, but you know the old saying ~~
