Sunday


What do you call a blog when the posts only happen about once a week? Right now, I guess you'd call it "double happiness." I really admire bloggers that can post everyday. I get ideas for posts each day, but then don't get time to do them, and then it seems like it's all too late. I resolve, from this day forth, to endeavour to post everyday - even if nothing happens. Which, actually, is most days.

Anyhow, the subject of today's post is today - Sunday. It was beautiful and sunny. We went to the beach and Milo came along. It was his first time at the beach, and I am sad to say that he hated it. I'm not sure if it was all the people, the wind, or the sound of waves crashing on the shore - but he was very uncomfortable. Forget about even going in the water - he hated sitting on the sand. We didn't stay too long, but every once in a while he would make this strange noise that I interpreted as - "please get me out of here -please!" Maybe he will grow to love it?

The other thing we did today is go to a yard sale. They had all these great ceramics - I really loved the colours and couldn't resist. The one above is by Beauceware, a Canadian company based in Quebec. The piece below is just marked "USA". I love the colour and the shape.
I am not sure what I'll do with these pieces, or where I'll display them - but I do love them. Maybe I'll become one of those mad collectors, scouting every yard sale, salvation army store and e-bay?

Before you go "mad" I have a box of that pottery, I used to collect- all in white- heavy glazing. And my key to (almost) daily blog posts- well, I'll e-mail you with my secret just in case my boss reads this (she won't).
DOES NOT LIKE THE BEACH? I've never heard of such a thing.

great yard sale finds! sad to hear milo doesn't like the beach. maybe it will grow on him? i'm sure my dog wouldn't like the beach either, though. unless there was a couch there, and a big bucket of bones. he's like that. looking forward to more posts (if you find the secret, will you pass it along?)
