Being in Atlantic Canada means you are never too far away from any beach. This week we took a road trip to Nova Scotia and we hit a few beaches along the coast.

This was a favourite  explore we went on today as we came to a rather large stream that was empting into the ocean.  The question was should we cross to the other side to search for seaglass or not?

Your wondering if I found any, right?  Yup I sure did and this was my favourite find.

I haven’t wirewrapped it yet and it is such a round piece that it might look better just in my showcase in the gift shop at home.

The sun was hot today and we reached 20 degrees and it felt to hot at times as we are not used to it being so warm.  We are about to get a blast of summer come Sunday as the temp is to reach 23 degrees. Now that the sun has gone down I have a face full of sunburn.

When the sun was just right I found an old stump on the beach and used it as a prop for a few pictures.

This is the new seaglass look I’m going for this year.  I hope visitors in the gift shop like the new look.

This is a double wrap I started, I enjoy the look and balance this piece gives.

I hope you are enjoying your week. Be sure to take time for yourself and perhaps a good cup of tea and a new book will help.

Blessings, Cindy

What do you do when you are short a potato or two?  This past week things have been slowing down in the Hospitality business so I have had a little more time on my hands to do a few other things like cook
Extra lean hamburg was on sale this past week at Sobey’s and my daughter Victoria told me she would bring me over some of their hamburg from their last kill if I made her a Shepard’s Pie for supper when I was making one for us. Sounds like a good deal to me, only I ran out of potatoes.  Instead of running off to the store to purchase more, I did what the kids say I’m always doing….”changing the recipe again”.

Here is Victoria’s Shepard’s Pie with perogies instead of potatoes.  You can see where about I ran out of potatoes.  I added mozzerella cheese to the top of it just in case I got a complaint.  I figured I could back up my loss with a protein excuse.

With a fresh loaf of bread who would complain?

I so love my bread maker.  So much that we had to get a second one to keep up with the Bed and Breakfast guests.
Sure I can make bread from scratch, but why go to the bother unless it is raisin bread, yum.

Life sure has been busy over the past month with a wedding and funeral all in the same week.  Stress has been high and sleep has been scarce.  I managed to get a few things done like put my cell phone number on the do not call list and get the book listing finished not on schedule and handed in.  Time to breath, relax, reflect and take a short road trip just to  get away from it all for another short time.

Take time for yourself, no one else will…
