A journey of exploration and discovery of who I am becoming during the aging process. A great big bang-up HURRAH! that
I'm alive. A lot of talk about sundry and miscellaneous stuff & nonsense that may or may not have relevance; they may not even make sense (remember, I'm menopausal!). But I'm hoping they'll be fun.

Vacation Yard Sale'in
What's a vacation with the occasional yard sale, thrift store or Farmer's Market. So here are some of my finds last week .... minus all the pastries and chocolates already digested!
My first stop was at the Annapolis Royal Farmer's Market.
I bought these 2 lovely bottles of wine from a local winery - rhubarb and pear. I sampled about 4 different wines, although the rhubarb wasn't one of them; but having sampled rhubarb wine before, I took a gamble. And knowing that I'd be driving on twisty country roads, I made sure to sample the wines at the beginning of my market wanderings. Wine at 9:30 AM??? Why not! It's fruit after all!
I'll let you know the verdict on taste etc when I open these lovely fellows.
I also bought this pretty bracelet there for $4. I love blue! And this book supported the Friends of Annapolis Royal for $2. (I seem to remember this author's name from somewhere?)
During my week at Ashram, I always visit the Coldbrook Frenchies because it's one of the largest, cleanest and brightest thrift stores in Nova Scotia. Too bad they don't have more change rooms! The blouse and sweaters go for $3.85 each.
This cute little tray (about 10" x 4") was $1 and I loved the garden theme.
And here are the remains of some emergency chocolate. My favorites are the dark chocolate pastilles, but these milk chocolate are purty darned tasty!
