Not only is it Friday, it is also a Holiday Weekend ! Happy Labour Day Weekend, as I am most certain everyone deserves an "extra" day off from what they do best. I am not sure if my "Crabby Cabbie" gives himself the "extra" day off or not. Thinking not, since Monday is his regular day off anyway ... to bad, so sad for my Dear "Crabby Cabbie".
We had a couple of "house guests" arrive last evening for the Holiday Weekend. They actually might be staying over until Tuesday morning.
I was awake way before 6:00 am this morning. I finally dragged myself from our bed at 5:45 am. The winds seemed to be very high outside our windows, so I ventured out on the deck to see what the temperatures were like.
Speaking of Moons, this evening is to be a "Blue Moon".
The only Blue Moon I recall is this one ....
Quite the catchy tune, is it not?
Once I had first looked after all four of our "pack" this morning I then attended to our guests needs.
Once everyone was settled in for the morning, off North of the Checkerboard I went to see my Good Doctor.
A fairly new friend of mine, Lynn Wright, belongs to Wiarton's Optimist Club. They are holding a Yard Sale at Wiarton's St. John's United Church on Berford Street in the downtown area of Wiarton (Main Street) to raise money to put into the Basketball Court at the Jimmy Brown Park. The Yard Sale and BBQ runs from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm. Go on out and show your support for Wiarton's Youth !
I decided I would donate some of my time to the cause by baking a couple of things to be sold at this Yard Sale. This afternoon this is exactly what I did ... by trying out two more "new to me" recipes.
By this time it was going on to 2:00 pm. I had an appointment at the Wiarton Hospital at 2:30 pm.
I was in and out of Xray lickity split. Hopefully the xrays will tell all as to whether my left heel has suspected Tendonitis or a Heel Spur. Whatever it is, it has been quite painful for the past few weeks. I should know more by my next Friday appointment with the good Doctor. I am hoping it is the lesser of the two evils, as my volunteering for the VON SMART exercise program begins on the 12th of September, and I can not afford to be laid up too long.
With the xrays out of the way, I returned home to first attend to the "Checkerboard Aussies", two pick some green tomatoes with hopes they will ripen in the baskets, as most of the ripened ones I was finding on the vines were getting Blossom Rot, more then likely due to the lack of rain this Summer.
With all that out of the way, I carried on with some more baking ....
Zucchini Pineapple Bread can be found HERE, many thanks to Mary at One Perfect Bite.
Peanut Butter Cookie recipe can be found HERE, with thanks going out to Joanna Goddard at A Cup of Jo.
Both recipes were easy to follow, and everyone knows how much I LOVE Easy Peasy as 1-2-3, with everyday staples you would find in your coffers.
I think that was pretty much an "enough of a day" for myself. I think I will take our "Checkerboard Aussies" out for their last jaunt of the evening, check on our Guests and hopefully take in a Blue Moon this evening, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
